john labruzzo: more evidence that the republican party really is the stupid party

times-picayune excerpt:
Worried that welfare costs are rising as the number of taxpayers declines, state Rep. John LaBruzzo, R-Metairie, said Tuesday he is studying a plan to pay poor women $1,000 to have their Fallopian tubes tied.

"We're on a train headed to the future and there's a bridge out," LaBruzzo said of what he suspects are dangerous demographic trends. "And nobody wants to talk about it."

LaBruzzo said he worries that people receiving government aid such as food stamps and publicly subsidized housing are reproducing at a faster rate than more affluent, better-educated people who presumably pay more tax revenue to the government. He said he is gathering statistics now. ~ read more

the idea came to labruzzo after hurricanes katrina and gustav when the state was forced to evacuate, shelter and care for tens of thousands of people. ~ new orleans city business

whether or not governmental encouragement/mandate/paying for, sterilization of human beings is right or wrong is another argument for another day.

the question that no one ever asks is where in the republican party platform is a policy like this even addressed?

for example, the louisiana republican party's 2008 platform at article iv: sanctity of life
#6 "we support all developments in biomedical research and technology that enhance and protect human life. but we oppose any new development that does not treat all human life as a precious gift of god, or that does not treat every individual human life as a locus of unique and irreplaceable dignity no matter how weak, immature, or dependent." click here to download the 2008 louisiana republican party platform.

the 2008 national republican party platform calls for the repeal of the sixteenth amendment, which established the federal income tax. [.pdf page 31] why isnt representative labruzzo and the rest of the republicans as well as everyone else talking about that? think of how much more money everyone would have on hand and could even save some, if there was no federal income tax. caveat: the republicans want to repeal the sixteenth amendment and replace it with an equally egregious national sales tax or even worse value added tax.

another question that no one ever asks is where is the republican party leadership at and why do they never speak out against all these fake republican crackpots, fraudsters and rino's who are authoring/cosponsoring and voting for anti-republican legislation?

is it because of reagan's so called "eleventh commandment?" well guess what, ronnie raygun was not god and just because he said something does not make it so or even necessarily a good idea. in fact, this "thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow republican" garbage actually hampers the republican party.

what a minute you say, what about the greater new orleans republicans who came out and criticized representative labruzzo? well a closer look at gnor's statements shows a pattern by them that is very mysterious, suspicious as well as deceptive.

in a statement dated 5:10 p.m. 24 september 2008 and posted to the dead pelican website representatives of the gnor wrote [excerpts] "this is one of the dumbest ideas i have ever heard of." "...against the republican party plank..." ah, theres mention of the seldom if ever mentioned republican party plank. click here to view the screen grab.

then, apparently what happened was that an even bigger criminal in the republican party read that statement, didnt like it and ordered the "young professionals" at gnor to change it -- because:

a new, much shorter statement dated 9:49 p.m. was suddenly posted without explanation to the dead pelican. in the new statement gone was any mention of a republican party plank. because, we suspect, they cant afford to have people thinking that there is actually a written guide that they are supposed to be relying on now can they?

replacing the plank wording was the much more ambiguous "...representative labruzzo's advocacy for sterilizing women is contrary to the gop..." someone also removed the names of the gnor president j.t. hannan and board president mike bayham as well as their individual comments. click here to view the screen grab.

on thursday 25 september 208 representative labruzzo was interviewed on cnn. we missed that interview. however, cnn replayed excerpts of the interview as well as their viewer reaction to it today, which we were fortunate enough to catch. that video is below:

representative labruzzo has a shady history as a republican and as a legislator. representative labruzzo approved lake charles democrat willie mount's sb312, both in the bill's conference committee and by vote from the house floor. democrat willie mount's sb312 mandates the mass medicating of louisiana citizens, without our informed consent by adding the dangerous rat poison sodium fluoride to our drinking water.

earlier this year, representative labruzzo was practically laughed out of a senate committee hearing on his hb887.

representativ labruzzo also voted against hb715 a bill designed to stop louisiana's compliance with the federal governments satanic real id act.

representative labruzzo voted "yea" to sb672 the massive legislative pay raise fraud bill -- then later recanted his vote.
