Thank God! House GOP Reaffirms ‘In God We Trust’ As National Motto And Creates Zero Jobs

Let me check...nope, still NO JOBS!!!

Your tax dollars at work, people! Even as the country slides perilously close to a double dip recession, the House GOP took time out of their busy schedule of taking one weeks’ vacation for every two weeks of work to make sure Christianity to forced down everyone’s throat.

From Politico:

Nobody has proposed changing the national motto, but the House is set Tuesday to vote on a bill that assure that the phrase “In God We Trust” stays put.

The measure, which is sponsored by Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), would encourage public buildings, schools and government facilities to display the phrase. It declares that “In God We Trust” and sentiments behind it have been an “integral” part of the United States, and “in times of national challenge or tragedy, the people of the United States have turned to God as their source for sustenance, protection, wisdom, strength, and direction.”

Wow. This will surely solve our national woes. Just like Rick Perry’s great prayer meeting was supposed to put out the wildfires consuming Texas and fix the budget. It did neither of those things. It did, however, send a clear message that the GOP is a Christian organization and non-Christians will continue to have no voice in their America.

I wonder how many of these sanctimonious jackasses are even aware that just about every reference to the Judeo-Christian God in American politics only dates back to the 1950s and the Red Scare when gibbering buffoons rushed to embrace any method, no matter how ridiculous, to protect us from the “godless commies”? I’m guessing not many.

The worst part about the GOP wasting yet more time on frivolous and empty gestures instead of substantive policy? They’ll be rewarded by their mindless constituents for it. Praise Baby Jesus™!!!

  • As I said above, in the facebook comments, this is a direct violation of the first amendment.

    This is also a violation of the rules that the idiots in charge of the House set up in January, this year, against such symbolic votes.

    It is also a colossal waste of time.

    Seeing as only 9 House members remembered even the first problem with this vote, we all need to be writing letters to our representatives yesterday.

  • Down we go, further into the economic abyss. But at least we’re still passing meaningless, unproductive legislation, right?!

  • Typical Reichties, out of touch with the world around them…….

    Lord forbid should the phase be cut out of people’s lives…..huh!!!….In God We Trust….All others pay cash…

    Wall ST got bailed out and America got sold out…In God We Trust!!!
