Congresswoman Preaches White Stripes Lyrics To The House!

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikPerezTV

Her tactics may be unorthdox, but she certainly got our attention!

Check out the video (above) of Congresswoman Donna Edwards utilizing lyrics from the White Stripes' Effect and Cause in her message that goes out to "our young people and our seniors and our service members and federal workers who stand to be affected by a government shutdown."

In the video, she claims that her usage of the lyrics are meant to be a lesson for her republican colleagues.

Hmm…did you learn your lesson, republicans??? Ha!

Were U moved by Congresswoman Edwards' usage of the White Stripes?

    Are you out of your fucking mind, Mario?!! Republicans learned their lesson when liberal assholes like yourself supported a racist, gay-hating, America-hating foreign Muslim named Barry Obama. Now we know that liberals hate America. Look how close liberals/Democrats made us come to a government shut down. And, Mario, one of the most pathetic things you've ever done was support (and amazingly you still support) a man who doesn't support gay marriage. Barry Obama hates you gays…and yet you love him. It' pathetic. When will you gays learn your lesson?

    wow lets uses pop culture to make a statement that uses real research. The government is way to big as is and this is proof. NOTHING GETS DONE. notice in the past when we didn't have so much BS shit came and went. ADDITIONALLY the republicans are trying to salvage whats left of the american dream that OBAMINATION FUCKED UP. did you stop to think that the dems had majority when they should have gotten the budget done yet they waited? did you notice that since fuck face in office got elected the country is more divided and focused on race than in the last 10 years? did you notice that the debt quadrupled? did you notice all the job loss ? did you notice how he is 2 faced AND THE LIST GOES ON. Rather than be a stereotype and say I'm gay must be democrat go fucking do some research which clearly you dont since your "stories" appear on yahoo, google and the like hours, days and weeks before you post them.

    If thats her idea of teaching a lesson, its a good thing shes an unknown nobody from Congress and not a classroom teacher.

    Perez,

    Please wake up. America is being destroyed by debt. It is surreal to watch the democrats avoid addressing the debt. SURREAL.

    We borrow 40 cents of every dollar spent. This cannot go on.

    Whatever the cause, we must address the debt and deficits.

    We can still help the MOST needy. If we are destroyed by debt, how many of the MOST needy will be helped then?

    I am always impressed when people can aptly apply poetry (which some musical lyrics are) to life experience. I thought it was quite appropriate.

    I actually liked it a lot and no I'm doubtful republicans will ever learn their lesson and democrats haven't either for that matter. United we stand and divided we will fall.

    @Eldridge you're effing hilarious instead of blaming "the libs" why don't you blame both sides for being assholes and not doing their jobs. They are all so busy trying to push their own agendas instead of working together there is enough blame to go around and no party is innocent or entirely at fault for that matter.

    Both sides to blame on the close shutdown. Again this is just a 1 week stop gap. The Democrats screwed up last year. They had both Congress (House and Senate majorities) and the President. They did not set the budget for this year. They missed the opportunity. The Obama term has been a mess due to the entire health care passage. I am not saying that it is good or bad on that it got passed. However, the manner in which it was passed is absolutely wrong and not collaborative. This set the tone for the way Congress was going to work. Look back and see how the votes were done. Everyone was almost 100% party line on their votes. Now that the Congress is Republican controlled, they are dictating terms just like the Democrats did before midterm elections. This needs to stop because these people should be working towards a common goal for the people of this country.

    I'm really disappointed that people critical of Perez Hilton seem to be under the republican persuasion. Well, I'm the lonely Gaga-loathing, Perez-cynic who will settle the scores and say, without any bipartisan shit, that the Republicans are holding our government hostage for their own selfish purposes. They're not patriots, for 8 years a legion of them caused the destruction they're bitching about now, they're a snake that eats its own head and I love this congress woman for not referring to stupid formalities to appeal to irrational people. Sometimes you need to use more blunt and brazen wording.

    Being a Soldier myself and a liberal Eldridge we do not hate America..we want preserve and enhance the very values our fore fathers started. I for one believe that it takes two to tango and not one person in this situation is safe from this…do you remember a little civilian Army called blackwater that Rumsfield and Bush supported? Allowing a christian extremist fund this Army, paying them over 100,000 a year for doing the same job us Soldiers did. We will barely make that in the 5 years we are in! Ontop of tarnishing the reputation America has by having these chauvinistic "mercenaries" run a muck and twist the law in to their own hands. I am not just bashing Republicans but like I said it takes two to tango and democrats and our president is at fault for this but people don't want to realize or acknowledge the amazing things he has done for our troops.

    Whenever I'm in the middle of a fight with the hubby he drops a line from a song and sometimes an entire quote. I know I'm winning on my side and he uses this as a diversionalry tactic to lessen his losses. He knows this infuriates me to no end which in the past had resulted in the argument going off into an entirely new direction. I've learned to ignore his little quote game as to not distract me from my position and keep him in check. This political hack is pulling the same shit. Shame on her for this kind of childish nonsense while everyone else in the room is dealing with hard choices that will impact every man, women and child.

    Oh, stop with the false political propaganda catch phrases like 'liberals hate America'. They don't. Neither do Republicans. Divisiveness, grandstanding and stick poking isn't going to help the crushing situation towards solutions or moving forward. Do you want to stir the pot and fight, or do you want to work to fix it?

    My first message was for Re: Eldridge Cleaver – . Hi, El. Waves.



  14. 14

    People should understand the people to be pissed at are Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. This is the 2010 budget. Not this years. If they'd got off their ass when they had total majority, then the Republicans wouldn't even have any say in the budget. Perez, your knowledge of government and politics is so ignorant, why do you keep posting on politics????

    HYPERBOLE, pure and simple.

    They had to pull the old "redirection" and the use of the Bogeyman in order to deflect THEIR lack of ambition to actually cut off their cronies and all the lobbyists from the never ending money stream. The Pork Barrel Spending, to growing the government beyond anything even remotely sustainable, the entitlement programs, to the money that somehow trickles down their relatives' wallets, they are to blame. And they have the gall to think that they can go out and basically say the the GOP wants to bayonet your grandma or your baby all because they think that reducing the debt is a rational thing to do. Well Eff the Dems. They should be set on the Texas/Mexico border and be made to perform night surveillance for one year. They should hate themselves for foisting this no-nothing, Chicago Jr. Senator community organizer from Chicago (for God's sake, that alone should have been a non starter) on the nation.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm living on rice, beans, and cheese. Literally. I supplement it with food I get at the Dollar Store. These guys want to do the equivalent of buying a yacht when a skate board will do. Business as usual can no longer be accepted. And I say this with your children and grandchildren in mind. The minute a child is born they now have a whopping $66,000 debt attributed to them thanks to the previous administration and the current administration.

    Thanks for nothing, Morons.

    We are in debt because our treasury doesn't print our currency interest free, we borrow it from the PRIVATE Federal Reserve Bank with interest, it has nothing to do with the actors we call the 2 party system, but continue to fight amongst yourselves about what party is at fault while the real problem never ever gets addressed. "Allow a central bank to issue your nations currency and you will wake up homeless on the continent your forefathers conquered"-Thomas Jefferson

    Mrs. Edwards you are one foolish woman. How much are they paying you to ignore the real issues at hand in America, such as JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs orchestrating bailout after bailout on behalf of the American taxpayer to pay off Rothschild / Queen of England derivatives debt? See its shit like that is going to ultimately UN-ELECT or IMPEACH your current president - Barack Obama.

    The budget should have been passed in October 2010 when it was due. There was no excuse for not passing this in October when Dems had control of everything. I am sick and tired of the Dems playing politics and creating unnecessary emergencies especially when these emergencies affect our military families. The Democrats are to blame for this whole budget ordeal since they did not do their job in October by not passing a budget.



  26. 26

    Why is everyone seemingly missing the big picture! There has not been a budget passed since 2009! Spending…yes! Budget…no!

    It's funny how people who only follow politics by the news or by one sided postsas as this is. The Democrats have been the majority well before this crisis started. Speaking to both Republican and Democratic Congressman at the beginning of this economic crisis; they admitted that they stood by and did nothing. Obama through billions and billions away with his stimulus package. The bad far outweighs the good. He is a disgrace and needs the boot!
