Democrat Hank Johnson Afraid Guam Will "Tip Over and Capsize" ~ And These People get Elected!

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) Actually Believes that the island of Guam might “tip over and capsize” if 8000 military people/dependents are moved there.

Johnson expressed his worries during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the defense budget Thursday.

Addressing Adm. Robert Willard, who commands the Navy's Pacific Fleet, Johnson made a tippy motion with his hands and said sternly, "My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize."

Willard paused and said: "We don't anticipate that."

Like other islands, Guam is attached to the sea floor, which makes it extremely unlikely that it will tip over, even if there are lots and lots of people on it. Guam is 30 miles long and up to 9 miles wide in certain spots, with a population of 175,000 civilians. The military is proposing the addition of 8,000 U.S. servicemembers and their families.


Wild Thing's comment........

Adm. Robert Willard paused and said: "We don't anticipate that." LMAO I bet took all he had in him not to burst out laughing. Watch the video of the exchange. How the Admiral didn’t burst out laughing, I’ll never know. Didn’t even crack a smile....although there was a pause, like “What the Hell..

So glad this idiot is making health care choices for us.

OMG I am telling you, these people are dangerous they are so dumb. hahhahahaha I mean it, this level of STUPID should HURT!

Heh heh HEY Hank Johnson.....It’ll be fine as long as everyone doesn’t bunch up on one side. LOL

.... Thank you Jim for sending this to me.

Having been to Guam I can inform the gentleman that the island does not seem unstable at all. I couldn't even feel it bobbing up and down in the ocean. FORTHELOVEOFSANITY!! These people are the ones who believe in man-made global warming and want to run our lives in every aspect! God help us.

The stupid people of Georgia keep electing these retards who do nothing more than make fools of themselves. Remember Cynthia McKinney? Oh and there is Alcee Hastings of Florida who if you remember was a Federal Judge who was impeached. Yep and we have that shining star Maxine Waters out here on the left coast who has done nothing for her constituents for decades yet her people keep re-electing her.

Congressman Johnson obviously knows nothing about islands. It makes you wonder how much more he doesn't know. I bet he votes in lockstep with the man who cannot pronounce corps.

I had to watch this twice to believe he was actually serious. The only way people like Johnson get elected is to redistrict so all the morons are in his district.

Adm. Robert Willard must have the patience of a saint. Personally I would have asked the Congressman if he was high!

yup and these people think they can run Health Care. He must think the island is held by a Sea Anchors and too much weight on one side will cause an imbalance, ergo tipping the island out of its normal center of gravity. Hmmm...wonder why this didn't happen in 1944 when 100,000 troops invaded Guam afterall they all landed on one side of the Island. Plus all of their Tanks, and other heavy equipment all on one side of the Island but most likely he probably learned in School the Japanese won that battle

This sounds like something Steven King would write a novel about.

This man is a moron. So what else is new, everybody in Washington DC deserves the same credit, morons all.

Anyone with any common sense knows that it would simply sink and not capsize. He's an idiot.
