Go to HELL, Ralph Hall, you're a sorry jackass who's ONE OF the scum on Crapitol Hill.

I doubt Ralph Hall even knows what year it is. He probably sleepwalks in a diaper.

I had to read the Washington Post article linked here twice to make sure I wasn't seeing things. Ralph Hall's staff admits that the 90 year old had PLASTIC SURGERY this year to make his face look younger?! I am now officially embarrassed to have wasted my votes on Ralph all of these years. 90 year old man getting plastic surgery to keep his job and appeal to younger voters is pathetic and sad.

Perhaps you should read it again. From the article:

aides acknowledge that Hall had cosmetic surgery in the fall because some of the wrinkles were affecting his eyesight.

I don't think he should run again but I don't see the need to post false statements.

"The Obama administration has been helping to facilitate a series of events nationwide at Mexican Consulate offices to enroll people in Obamacare – and a key activist says the efforts are “our responsibility” regardless of citizenship."

Ralph Hall APPROVES and SUPPORTS this shit. Wake up, People, Ralph Hall is THE ENEMY of all decent Americans, he's sold us down the river for a few dirty mexicons spreading their diseases, filth, and criminal ways throughout our nation.

GO TO HELL, RALPH HALL!!!!!!

You got to feel sorry for this guy. He has no other life. He just wants to be the center of attention until he dies. Shame he is not concerned for the fourth district enough to get someone in there with a quick mind and that CAN work. Poor old Hall, he will go down looking like Wimpee did, not good. Shame on him for being so selfish he can not help anyone, even himself, anymore.

In the U.S., the foreign-born population is now estimated to be around 13 percent, and it’s rising every year. This poses truly existential problems, particularly since the concept of “melting” into American culture was junked long ago – along with “American” culture. If you love the mexicons so much why don't you adopt a few million of 'em so they can shit all over your house?? EFF U!!!

And FU to all the 4th District white trash who don't see the danger emanating from mexico, you're the same kind of scum as is Ralph "Open border" Hall........

It amazes me how many people here make stupid comments, that have nothing to do with reality. People should watch science committee hearings.

Rep. Hall understands the issues very well. I have spoken to him personally about NASA programs, wind power, a smart electric grid, and fuel mileage standards.

I can name several other people in the House who are not anywhere near as sharp as Ralph Hall.

Locally... Sam Johnson for one.

Hall should have picked up a little bit of info on the above since he has been to so many meetings for these items.I would bet real money if the films were to be made present of those meetings Hall would be asleep in most of the meetings. His ego just won't let himself be reason able. Hall needs sympathy. He wants a lake named after him before he gets thrown out of office. Sad.

"Wait his turn" ??? SERIOUSLY - let's see what the voters say. It's not Ralph's seat - it belongs to the voters. Ralph just THINKS it belongs to him. And obviously you do too. Sad.

What do you think this is? Some playground game where everyone gets a "turn?" This office belongs to the people of the 4th congressional district. There's a reason people have to "reapply" for the job every two years.

In my opinion, this is the first time in recent years that we've had a well-qualified candidate who can start making a difference in Washington. Ratcliffe has "paid his dues" as a public servant, demonstrated leadership and a grasp of the issues facing our district and country.

I think you meant to say that "Ralph is still doing work ON Rockwall". His accounts at Lakeside National Bank are FAT (he's also chairman and director), he gets $65,000+ per year from a Texas state pension, North & East Trading Company is treating him very well. His current congressional salary doesn't need to be mentioned, but I will:$174,000/yr. He gets FREE medical care in D.C. from the best doctors at Bethesda Naval Medical Center, etc. etc.

You tell me, does he have enough to get him through to his demise???

In the mean time, ask him why we get to pump schitty E-10 gasonline into our vehicles/lawn equipment/boats, that was his baby right there.

Quit swinging from Ralph Hall's nutsack, he's visited enough misery upon America, and the 4th District..........

Our scourge is the very government that we have put in place.

Over the last one hundred years, they have gone from the whip to the gun, something that adds a finality to the life of any member of the unwashed masses.

In November, the entire House could be sent packing, run out of town. Just think Peeloosely, Boner and the rest of the scum running for their lives. Start with a new set of thieves.

America's electorate is not that smart. Vote for your dinosaur pub or dem, keep them there 'til the Grim Reaper hauls them away.

The solution to our misery is in hand, given to us by the Founding Fathers, and we are not smart enough to see it and use it.(hint: it's right after the 1st Amendment...)
