with eyes open wide
If you haven’t heard about this yet, Obama is using his authoritative powers to create a protected marine area in specific parts of the Pacific Ocean around Hawaii (where he spent most of his childhood).
Clearly this is great news to anyone with at least half of a brain. But this dimwit from Washington had this to say (quoted from the linked article below):
Representative Doc Hastings, Republican of Washington and chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said in a statement: “Oceans, like our federal lands, are intended to be multiple-use and open for a wide range of economic activities that includes fishing, recreation, conservation and energy production. It appears this administration will use whatever authorities — real or made up — to close our ocean and coastal areas with blatant disregard for possible economic consequences.”
WTF is wrong with you, Rep. Hastings? Is EVERYTHING about f*ing money all the f*ing time??? Disgusting. Stupid. I hope no one ever votes for you again.
