Some Garbage Podcast EP032 – State Raptor, Crying Wolf

You say “Thank God it’s Friday” and I say “Fuck, I’ve got to work”. That’s our relationship, and I’m okay with that, really. I usually try to pick a theme for the show in advance, which usually gets derailed within the first 30 minutes, but the news has been trash all week and I wasn’t sure the theme for the show, hence the late scheduling of this episode.

But rest assured folks, we’ll be here every Friday from 5-7pm EST, or EDT, or whatever the fuck this daylight savings nonsense makes the time in New Hampshire.

So as I was looking for a title for tonight, I saw this insanity trending on Facebook… A bunch of fourth graders decided they were uniquely qualified to draft a bill to become law before the New Hampshire legislature. For sure, it would have been one of the less harmful bills the House of Representatives had entertained, but it was still rather frivolous. The children wanted to make the Red Tail Hawk the “State Raptor”. Ain’t that cute?

The bill made it through the committee, and onto the House floor. While the fourth graders sat attentively in the gallery, a debate began between the attending members of the deliberative body below. Among other things, they heard Rep. Warren Groen state;

[The Red Tail Hawk] grasps [its prey] with its talons then uses its razor sharp beak to basically tear it apart limb by limb, and I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood.

Rep. John Burt (R-Goffstown) stated;

Bottom line, if we keep bringing more of these bills, and bills, and bills forward that really I think we shouldn’t have in front of us, we’ll be picking a state hot dog next.

Now a bunch of people are upset, because, as put it “the children’s remaining faith in representative democracy, was killed.”

Well, fuckem. I’m glad the NH legislature taught those little brats that their stupid ideas have no place occupying my tax dollars.
