Seven Politicians Making Fools Out of You

And not only on April Fools’ Day...

if he had any shame he wouldn't be able toCBS

3. MIKE ROGERS

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, has been a key water-carrier for the surveillance operations of the National Security Agency (NSA) and other agencies of the federal government.

After Edward Snowden disclosed the NSA’s massive domestic data gathering programs, Rogers suggested Snowden might be a Chinese spy, because he was in Hong Kong when he revealed his identity. Snowden was charged with espionage and eventually made it to de facto asylum in Russia, so then Rogers helpfully suggested Snowden was a Russian spy.

Rogers may be retiring at the end of his current term to take his show to talk radio, but he’s still got a bill vying to be the "reform" legislation promised after the NSA spying revelations. And that bill would actually strengthen the agency’s ability to collect data as it pleases.

    Is being an April Fool a pre-existing condition? Thank god for obamacare.

    Yee’s anti-gun stances are typical among Democrats in places like California, but Yee was an especially outspoken advocate of more gun control. He had no issue using the 2013 massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, to push his agenda

    It makes perfect sense, really. More gun control = bigger black market = more opportunities for gun trafficking. He's really just taking cronyism to its next level.

    Nooo!!!

    I love Joe Biden.

    He has done more good with his stupidity then all the others combined.

    Note: I am referring to Joe screwing up Obama's anti-gay marriage agenda so bad that it forced Obama to become pro-gay marriage.

    Wholesale stainless steel wigs at a discount? Well why didn't you say so?

  • mrvco||

    It is sad to say, but the one douche bag from that list that turns my stomach the most is Warmonger McCain.

  • AdamJ||

    I quite often find myself thinking that things like Harry Reid and France must be some vast conspiracy to see how far off the deep end "progressives" can go and the sheep will follow.

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    The one thing all these politicians have in common, is they lie to the public and those that elected them. Given they are frauds, Michael Moore should support their beheading. But he has a different standard for political liars, than he does for liars in GM.

  • Paul Spomer||

    Oof. I wish some of these were just April Fool's jokes.

    Making a fool out of us, Reason readers? You're saying that as libertarians we are too naive and/or dumb to see through the liberty-limiting and criminal actions of these big government boobs? Why don't you take a great, big, flying leap into Lake Blockhead.
