Don "Bridge to Nowhere" Memorable Moments

At a House hearing on endangered species, with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service director Mollie Beattie in the witness chair, Young waved in the air an 18-inch-long oosik — a Walrus’ penis bone — and then slapped it into his hand.(repeatedly)

Young delivered another memorable hearing performance when defending use of leg traps to kill wolves. The “congressman for All Alaska” put his wrist in a leg trap, trying to argue it wasn’t all that painful.

Young is a global warming denier, despite the shrinking Arctic icepack and melting permafrost that has created “drunken forests” in his home state. Global warming is “the biggest scam since Teapot Dome” he told one TV interviewer.

Young was investigated by the U.S. Justice Department as part of its probe of VECO, the big Alaska oil field supplier that bought the favors of Alaska politicians, including state legislators who called themselves the “corrupt bastards club.”

Young has been the subject of repeated House Ethics Committee inquiries having to do with his ties to lobbyist Jack Abramoff, a $10 million highway interchange earmark to a Young campaign donor in Florida, and the legal defense fund put together by Young when he was faced with the Justice Department probe.

Young referred to the leader of Al-Qaeda as “Osama ben Lidden.” He once described young. environmental minded visitors to Alaska as “jet setting hippie backpackers.” Speaking to a breast cancer awareness event at an Anchorage hospital, Young said he had urged wife Lu to get a “Monogram test.”

Now we can't say wet back? Really? Soon the Democrats will make it impossible to say anything, because everything offends them. Guess what? No one cares. I'll be glad when the free speech people are elected again so we can talk without "cutting off the debate" of anything that offends someone. At least when the Republicans are in office they don't waste time being the speech police. No wonder the Democrats can't get anything done.

Biden's "clean and articulate" comment earned him bipartisan condemnation. His office issued an apology, saying, "I deeply regret any offense my remark in the New York Observer might have caused anyone. That was not my intent and I expressed that to Sen. Obama."

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man. Joe Biden 2008

In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking." Joe Biden 2006

Jackson jr. is NOT in prison yet...but should be

Neither is Ray Nagin http://www.fox8live.com/story/21829169/ray-na...

Don't you just love how liberals call us "racist" and "bigots", yet they have no problem calling Ben Carson an "uncle tom" just because he has no brains in his little finger that ALL liberals combined, especially that imbecile in the oval office.

Speaking of the devil, how is the "messiah" going to protect America from N. Korea? Or isn't he?

A derogatory comment, did it profile discrimination of funds welfare or services.? NO! So I am not concerned.

I am concerned for people in Servcie Highschool classes of 1987-1985

Most graduating in 1985 that were awarded scholorships were 25 year old boys and their girlfriends. They were paid $35,000 a year to graduate late so they had a man build entering college sport.

The children 16-18 years old studying hard to graduate with honors were not given same oppertunity and raped and dealt drugs by these adults walking with minor children.

Most are flop housing or all rented 4 plexes and hold community share to keep together in life, scared. CAREFUL California did this as well, apartment complexes were of gruaduating classes residence only, rape murder theft in the building of 8000 apartments of peers from school only. Lost scholorships, member status GUILTY BY ASSOCIATIONS church status other monies.

Most class of 1987 were boys that were raped by the time they were 9 years old. Groups of girls in female sports and secertary of graduating class ordered. Broken necks, crushed muscles, penis ripped inside sack that they could n ot create erection or child rearing any longer, some in a coma. Hosptial and police were all over it, but J BRown and family firneds refused to permit DNA match to vaginal leak to prove a punks dismay of rape in court and laughed at the boys families and walked away from their arrest.

I CARED I wanted to do with my degree ownership and work in rehabilitations of truama for so many boys I found much emotion for in highschool, BUT ALaska was not my birth origin and things were wrong in WIsc too, Pluys I had a trauamtic Brian Injury several head injuries comas brain surgery no time or tolerence to focal on one person or another.

Now I have children kidnapped and taken out of jurisdiction. Criminal courts ordered return of my daudhgters HAyley and PAige in 2006 Both men face Mansalughter in DA fiels PAiges holds 4 caught on DNR and NASA cameras in court offices waitng for arrest on Manslaughter, CHIPS and now kidnapping each year is $9 million for delay and duplicate indictions they were ocurt instructed to return girls in family court, and not to play court, it was just a drop off to come home and they would have to turn themselfs in form there.

Police out of jurisdiction or ignorent coce infested pathetic fugative felons in society and have no license to go into STATE REGISTRY to access arrest and booking codes in their DA FILES Already indicted waiting for arrest. OR they could have scheduled a meeting on files with DA and he could go over what state registry and DA files were asserted. BUT IGNORENT Wet backs on drugs dont do nothing legal do they, not even with a badge and knowledge of GUILTY OF AFFILIATIONS cant make a legal arrest civilan when you are a fugative felon at large yourself.

Kids dont know they were Truamatic Brian Injury form birthing complications, one birthed dead and came back alive almost 20 minutes in and out of body, the other so far over due placenta leaked as it rotted in me 3 1/2 weeks over due, and she had toxic shock, blood poisening, plus both have truama from carnival ride and head injuries in their dads care and from school. FBI in WIsc, Ak Arizonia Oregon and Washington are all on the case, 7 years still waiting to here if my girls are dead alive phone # BY LAW of State Registry they live in MAdison Wisc wherever I live and can obtain housing. SO I wait for them forever.

Now they are on drugs, and alcohol and raped and dads find new boyfriends when the others fail GREAT WORK EH Cops are dead child molesting pukes and desire death of execution in prison forever

Hope you are not too disappointed. Obama of course has issued the fewest pardons of any President in over a century.

39 in four years. It looks like nothing when you compare it to the 393 pardons Saint Reagen issued. It does not even stack up to the 189 pardons handed out by W.
