New Congressional Acrimony over Increasing the Speed of Light

Satirical News Service
Washington, DC

In what continues to highlight the intractable differences between Republicans and Democrats, a new debate now rages in Congress over the Speed of Light. This was brought about by the recent findings from CERN that a particle has exceeded the Speed of Light.
Republican House leaders came out today stating they are adamantly opposed to such increases without first cutting the mass of particles. According to Republican spokespersons, "We need less mass, not more speed! By increasing the Speed of Light you slow down other particles and create a greater burden on the whole electrical grid that is responsible for creating thousands of jobs for the American people. This is just another example of Big Government imposing new forms of regulation and increasing waste."
Democrats countered that increasing the Speed of Light will help create jobs and make for cleaner more efficient forms of energy and transportation.
This debate however has completely by-passed Republican Presidential Hopefuls Michele Bachman and Rick Perry who do not believe in the existence of sub-atomic particles at all, and instead believe in the "Four Humors Theory" of matter.

Tea Party favorite Michele Bachman declared today the she has some significant issues with how science is taught in schools today. According to Bachman, “the Germ Theory – long believed to be the pillar of modern medicine- has gaps in it, and alternative causes of illness such as mental retardation and autism caused by vaccines should also be taught in schools right along side of theories such as the Germ theory.” She also stated that there is absolutely no link between gun ownership and accidental or intentional shooting deaths, and has come out strongly in support of the Florida Law that prohibits doctors from asking patients about gun ownership. According to Bachman, “Any connection between gun ownership and shooting deaths is completely baseless. We have to guard against this type of liberal misinformation that might prevent citizens from purchasing guns and potentially saving lives!”

Miami, Florida

In preparation for tonight’s Tea Party Debate, front runner Governor Rick Perry today sited his home state of Texas as an example of how new jobs were added without the help of state or federal funds.

“In Texas there have been more than 10,000 new sign spinner jobs created last year, all without the help of state or federal government funds or new debt spending like President Obama is proposing. These were all done through tax cuts to home developers and other businesses. They responded by adding lots and lots of sign spinning jobs. You can hardly pass an intersection without finding one. This is an example of how I propose we can solve the high unemployment in this nation."

Bachman Proposes to End 13th Amendment in Effort to Create Jobs Without Government Spending

Satirical News Service
Washington, DC

In an effort to demonstrate her extensive knowledge of U.S. history and understanding the economy, Michele Bachman today proposed abolishing the 13th Amendment in an effort to create jobs in America without increasing government spending or taxes.
According to Bachman, "Before the Civil American War, there was full employment in the South, but after Liberal Presidents came into office they imposed big government regulations on the South like the 13th amendment which caused massive unemployment." "As president I'd abolish big government regulations like this." "Many of our founding fathers owned slaves because they saw how good it was for employment. Unfortunately because of affirmative action, only Negroes got to be slaves." "I'd propose making slavery available to all races and nationalities, even to illegal immigrants provided they abide by the laws of our country and become Evangelical Christians." "By ending this jobs-killing-amendment, employers could keep much more of their hard earned money by not having to pay for burdensome government expenses such as workmen's comp, health insurance, and OSHA regulations." "Everyone would be granted a job under this proposal, so we could completely abolish liberal programs like welfare and unemployment insurance and continue to have large tax cuts for the rich."
