Ooops.... Where did Guam go??!?!

Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson is questioning Navy Admiral Robert Willard, the commander of the Navy’s Pacific Fleet, about some troop movements involving the island of Guam. Congressman Johnson actually told the Admiral that he was concerned that with the additional 8000 people on the island, Guam might “tip over and capsize.” This imbecile of a congressman receives $174,000 yearly pay, but doesn't even sound smart enough to work at McDonald's or Wal-Mart.



In case you were unsure, islands are not floating pieces of land that can just capsize. Does this look like something that will just tip over and sink under?


It's people like this who run our country, educate our children, write our laws, spend our money, and wrote the "health care bill" (which has nothing to do with keeping anyone healthy).

  1. Oh.My. I thought, reading the comment, that maybe it was a joke??? But he is as serious as a heart attack. Wow. Did you see the Admiral's little smile when he first started anwering the comment? I would've had a hard time not bursting out with laughter! Where do you find these little gems?

  2. I heard about this, and I had to say, I burst out laughing from the sheer stupidity of it. Islands don't randomly capsize- I don't know the exact geology, but they're not going anywhere! I thought everyone knew that- I know I learned it in elementary school.

  3. Although it's really not a laughing matter that there is someone this completely ignorant in Congress, I just couldn't help but laugh at this fool. Thank you for this post. Boy am I glad I didn't know Guam could possibly tip over and capsize when my son was there or I might never have gotten any sleep :-D

  4. I heard this clip on the radio and almost died laughing. Good thing I wasn't in traffic or others would have thought I was nuts. If he believes that islands can flip over wonder how he explains why none have just floated off. Seems life Hawaii is in the same spot every map I see. :)

  5. If Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson isn't on some kind of mind altering drug in this clip, suffering a brain aneurysm or perhaps an alien from the planet "granite-skull" I would be very surprised. He needs to be drug tested, cut loose and paved over.

  6. I am from Georgia and can I just reassure everyone that we are not all this ignorant! Of course, the sad things are that 1- he's an elected official, which leads to 2- there are plenty of people out there that think just like him. Scary thought.

  7. WOW! That's like saying if too many people go to the top of a mountain it's going to tip over! Where did they get this guy? :)

  8. You have got to be kidding!? How embarrassing!! I'm embarrassed for him! So Guam is like a canoe out in the ocean and if we get too many people on it it will capsize? The state of Georgia should be proud...

  9. Very awkward. It's not really fun. It's more sad than anything. I couldn't help but feel embarrassed for him.

    lol @ Kerri. Guam = canoe. too funny, but it IS probably how he sees it! haha.

  10. Ahhhhh! Watch out for Australia, they must carefully balance both sides like a teeter-totter! (It was a big concern when they built the Sydney Opera House--there were a few close calls!)

    Hope you and the children are doing well!

  11. So the health care you enjoyed in Germany was just really awful, right?

  12. Perhaps he was saying this in jest... He was a judge, more educated than many of you.

  13. I actually had just posted the same video to my blog. Very sad, we the people elected this type of person to represent US?

  14. He supposedly has a dry wit and a history of this kind of gag. And it was, after all, April 1st.

  15. Yet another reason why I do not trust the government to educate my children.

  16. Goodness know though, what would we do without all those wonderful people to guide and direct our lives for us? lol An idea! Maybe we could put them all on that little island and pray it WILL tip over!

  17. I'm pretty sure he just has a dry sense of humor. It seems like a joke, plus a metaphor of overpopulation on the island of Guam.
