Our previous documentation of this week’s atrocities:

House Bills in Jefferson City – February 9 and 10

Clearly the republican members of the Missouri House are doing their darnedest to have an impact on the epic political dialogues taking place nationally. Well, some just seem to have an ability to fall off their tricycles while trying  to pedal at a high rate of speed.

There’s more:

HCR 24 Urges the federal government to rescind its actions in providing financial bailouts and seek alternative solutions to our nation’s financial and economic problems

Sponsor: Wilson, Kevin (130) Proposed Effective Date: 00/00/0000

HCR24

Next Hearing: Hearing not scheduled

Calendar: Bill currently not on a calendar

Rough translation: “Drown it, drown it in the bathtub!”

The actual text:

FIRST REGULAR SESSION

House Concurrent Resolution No. 24

95TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

1481L.03I

           Whereas, our forefathers placed their fortunes, their families, and their very lives in peril to oppose a tyrannical king and his practice of taxation without representation; and

           Whereas, after a bitter and bloody war, this United States of America was formed; and

           Whereas, over the next two centuries, Americans have fought and died to preserve the freedoms born from those humble beginnings; and

           Whereas, we now face an economic crisis the likes of which have not been seen for nearly a century; and

           Whereas, the American people grow increasingly weary of a federal government which is now spending the people’s tax dollars on unregulated and unsupervised financial bailouts of private concerns; and

           Whereas, this ill-conceived and most likely unconstitutional spending of taxpayer money has raised concern among every segment of this society:

           Now, therefore, be it resolved that the members of the House of Representatives of the Ninety-fifth General Assembly, First Regular Session, the Senate concurring therein, acting on behalf of the millions of Missourians affected by these actions of our federal government, do hereby plead that our national leaders immediately rescind their actions and seek alternative solutions to solve our nation’s financial and economic problems; and

           Be it further resolved that this resolution be referred to as the “Economic Declaration of Independence”; and

           Be it further resolved that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for Barack Obama, President of the United States, and each member of the Missouri Congressional delegation.

Uh, who was president when this “economic crisis the likes of which have not been seen for nearly a century” and the “federal government which is now spending the people’s tax dollars on unregulated and unsupervised financial bailouts of private concerns” actually took place? Just asking.

And there’s this:
