Mortar Fire in Shitholia.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:20 pm

payneBy now, you surely have read about the United States Congressman Donald Payne’s plane barely having left the airport in Somalia before mortar rounds landed on the airport’s runway. Donald Payne represents New Jersey’s 10th congressional district. Yes, that makes him “my” congressman.

You probably read or heard that he is the Chairman of the racially exclusionary club known as the Congressional Black Caucus. He has served in Congress for more than twenty years, and he probably will have the “job” for life, as during the last few congressional elections, he has run unopposed. (In the 2008 presidential election the 10th congressional district went 87% to 13% in favor of Barack Obama.)

What the newspapers and electronic media didn’t tell you is that Donald Payne is positively useless as a representative and that he spends far more time worrying about the conditions in lawless shitholes like Somalia than he does about the conditions of the lawless shitholes in his own congressional district.

Take, for example, the Township of Irvington. Once a beautiful town, made vibrant by the pride that largely blue collar workers took in maintaining their hard-earned homes. The township boasted a thriving business center and a beautiful park.

Now, it has the look and feel of Mogadishu, except that in Irvington only the bad guys are armed. A former corrupt mayor was forced out of office, and crime is so rampant that State Troopers have been enlisted to patrol the streets. Indeed, as of 2007, Irvington had the highest violent crime rate of the New Jersey’s 15 major urban areas (Link). Gangs? You bet.

I, therefore, submit that, in the future, if Mr. Payne is intent on visiting rotting, corrupt, crime-ridden, hell holes, he need not set one foot outside his congressional district.

The good news for Mr. Payne is that the criminals in Irvington don’t have mortars. Yet.

  3. I bet the same can be said for each and every district (mis)represented by a member of the congressional black cock us.

  6. I figure a few well-placed dollars to the right people guaranteed a glowing headline.

    “I’ll have my worst shots fire a few at you, aimed to miss, of course.”

    “Well, if they’re gonna aim to miss, I’d prefer they be your best shots.”

    Or am I too over-the-top cynical?

  7. Elisson- Fuckistan is in California, in Imperial County. Some people call it Sacramento.

  8. Oh hell, Sacramento’s not in Imperial County. Okay, I admit it… I am an official dumbass before coffee.
    Fuckistan is a.k.a. Sacramento.
    Imperial County is just fucked.

  9. Why can’t politicians just remember that they work for us? Don’t they realize how hard the taxpayers work? Maybe they should put themselves in our shoes.

  10. We the voters need to vote out every single incumbent at the next election.

  12. Wow! Brings back fond memories(!)of Irvington. Some of the best times of my youth. My Grand Pop lived on 40th St. as I recall. Across the street from the Knights of Columbus. Just a short walk to the Olympic Amusement Park. Great times there! And then the riots….. I went back once after the riots. Years later. I did not stop or slow down much. Too depressing.
