From my friend and fellow blogger, Warner Todd Huston at PublusForum:
My friend over at Alexa Shrugged (www.alexashrugged.com A great blog you should visit) made a hilarious observation about what is going on in Washington D.C. during preparations for the oncoming hurricane named Irene.
On her Twitter feed Alexa joked about a story on Fox about D.C. residents being told where and how to get sandbags for the storm.
Alexa noted this specific part:
Residents, with DC identification, may pick up sandbags (up to five per household) at RFK Stadium, Lot 7.
Alexa found the whole “DC identification” thing rather amusing.
“Need ID to pick up sandbags, but not to vote,” she snarked.
Totally hilarious, no?
You need a valid ID to save your home, but you don’t need an ID to vote??
As a side note, I can only wonder what in the world you're supposed to do with only five sandbags? Typical government solution - everyone gets a little bit of something but not enough to actually accomplish anything at all. We have to be fair, now, don't we? As a result, everyone who relies solely upon the government will fail equally in protecting their homes.
And who are those people so dependent upon government? Why - the poor, of course! Why don't the leftist politicians in D.C. want the poor to save their homes? Isn't this a type of sandbag tax - like they claim a voter ID is a poll tax?
Stuck on stupid.
You just can't make this stuff up!
