Does anyone else find comrade slew to be offensive? I think slew and his leftism are coming out for what they are, anti-american,

Slew needs to apologize and kiss the american flag that has given him so much and yet his hatred for this country continues. The USA is great! Yet people like slew want to turn us into a 3rd world country. They attack our constitution and want to destroy it; why? Really Slew why can't you be a proud american like the rest of us? I don't even want to think about what you do on the 4th of july.

(The Borowitz Report)—The chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology said today that the committee would hold hearings next week “to settle the question, once and for all, of whether meteors exist.”

“The media has been in something of a frenzy recently on this whole topic of meteors,” said chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas).“I think it’s irresponsible of them to frighten the public about something that, at the end of the day, may be about as real as unicorns.”

Rep. Smith said that he had seen recent reports of the “so-called Russian meteor” of last week, but added,“Maybe it’s the scientific skeptic in me, but this ‘meteor’ may just have been a bunch of fireworks that some Siberian fellow set off after drinking a little too much Stoli. It is winter, after all, and that’s how those folks keep warm.”

The Texas congressman said that he and other meteor doubters are worried that scientists had “a vested interest” in convincing people that meteors are real:“They want the government to spend more money on science, and, let me tell you, that is the last thing the Science Committee is going to do.”

As for the scientific theory that meteors may have killed the dinosaurs, Rep. Smith chuckled,“That theory would also have us believe that there were dinosaurs.”

Good one Slewsie dear. But everyone knows that Borowitz thing is made up fiction. Here's one that is REAL. A Black Democrat Congressman from Georgia thought Guam might tip over from the added population at a Navy Base on the Island.

Congressman's island-capsizing query goes viral

Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat, asked if adding a few thousand people to Guam would make the island "become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

Only a few years ago, a member of Congress serving up an inane comment in a congressional hearing would have merited a brief gossip column mention, or more likely gone unnoticed.

Unfortunately for Rep. Hank Johnson, a Georgia Democrat, his bizarre question about the island of Guam possibly tipping over--he used the word "capsize"--if additional troops were stationed there became a YouTube sensation on Thursday.

It's no April Fools' Day joke: the 55-year-old congressman and member of the House Democratic leadership told a naval officer who was testifying on March 25 that: "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."
