Finally, "an embarrassment of riches" defined by a member of the party of the rich who continue to embarrass us.  As a registered member of that party, make no mistake; it is embarrassing.  Mindless remarks such as those spoken by New Hampshire State Legislator, Stella Tremblay, are endlessly spilling out at the most inappropriate times.  Such remarks which the guest may assume will be  Read More...


The self-appointed protectors of the 1st Amendment, TP republicans, never cease to astound with their careless disregard for the realities of events surrounding them.  The Legislator said, "The fact is, I did not understand everything that was going on."  May I suggest, Madam Legislator, that you do not understand ANYTHING that is going on. The unconscionable statement following that remark is that she did not understand why Jeff Baumer, who lost both legs in the Boston Marathon explosion, did not scream in agony...it's called shock. And, Madam Legislator, who could have heard his among the hundreds of other screams that erupted that day at the first explosion? We are not rational in moments of panic.


We read stories such as this every day.  Remarks made by those we elect to lead our country and to watch over its interests are increasingly frightening. The politics and politicians within state governments are not well known outside of their respective states but one day may be.  Ambition does not stop at local levels, and the party that is leading the Congress to complete irrelevance will continue to push forward the agendas of their benefactors - the 1% that will not stop until they own 100%.


Yes, I am a registered Republican who voted for and supports this President as I watched the demise of honesty and decency in the 8 year administration that ended in 2008.  There are many more of us who viewed this from the same bridge.  The party of Lincoln is no longer about good governance; it is about absolute control and salesmanship, convincing vulnerable people that somewhere there is a rainbow with a pot of gold waiting for them. All that is required is to obey the wisdom of the story tellers.

You're right Stella. He wasn't hurt. He just wanted to lose 40 lbs. Give your head a shake Stella.

As I said before, is there a requirement for Republican members of congress that they must have a low IQ? How on Earth can so many of them come up with such idiotic statements??? Boggles the mind.

Not really, it's the society of willful ignorance.

Prodded by an idiot as president.

Why can she not process that everyone deals with pain in a different way. Not everyone screams when they are stabbed or shot. He simply responded in silence. The bombing could have been so overwhelming that screaming would have dimmed in response. So what if he was silent, actions speak louder than words. The look on his face was louder than any scream he could have produced.

One look at his face and I thought he wasn't going to make it. Thank goodness they were able to get him care immediately. He face was so grey and he was so clearly in shock.

The people this woman is listening to also believe that several disasters have been fake, including ... 9/11, Va Tech Shooting and Sandy Hooks. I haven't yet figured out what motive they attribute to our government for staging such atrocities, but the conspiracy theorists are very scary people.

They certainly are scary. There seems to be a mass madness/hysteria going on. Too much FauxNoise and Sunday preachers, and not enough book knowledge or understanding of the world we live in.

Indeed.

I made the mistake of going to the website that one the conspiracy posters listed here. The writing is not unintelligent, but the speculation and bizarre conclusions are so disjointed from the real world.

The Bible is a book too, stupid. Sounds like a lot of claraluznoise to me. Your statement was about as idiotic as hers was.

That this woman could be elected and continue to hold office in the New Hampshire legislature is an indictment of, not only the voters of her district, but of America in general. There is just too much blatant lying about conspiracies. America just keeps a big apatite for it, and does not demand that it stop. She is just the current poster icon for a much larger problem with politicians and media personalities using lies and deceit to stay in office and make millions while there.

NH has a very unusual setup for the State House of Representatives that isn't like any other state that I'm aware of, so I'm not sure this woman should be connected to larger problems in politics. I agree with your assessment of the larger problem, I just don't think this woman is emblematic of it. Although she is crazy and hopefully her colleagues (or neighbors) can get her to resign, because she shouldn't get to "represent" anybody. Unfortunately, there's no recall provision so there isn't much that can be done if she refuses to resign before the next election.

Stella Tremblay is the answer to the age old question: But if we do start a Hunt, where will we ever actually find a Witch?

I hope Mr. Bauman , opens a can of woopass on her with his prosthetics !!!

Agreed.

I hope Mr. Bauman, Carlos Arrendos "The Cowboy Hat Guy," and the woman pushing the wheelchair confront Ms. Tremblay.

First question Ms. Tremblay should ask, "Mr. Bauman, aren't you at all upset that you, a traumatically injured victim, was put upright and transported, an immediate death sentence to most every other victim due to the very real possibility of bleeding out through both femoral arteries?"

And Mr. Bauman, aren't you also upset that they did not properly wait for the paramedics and that they treated less injured people before you, as seen in the photographic evidence?"

Enough Mr. One Trick Pony, we get it, you don't like President Obama. Duly noted. Now can you try and keep up with the actual conversation?

It's like going to a cocktail party at a friends house and while you just want to chat and finish your drink the host child keeps insisting on playing the accordion.
