Texas Republican Congressvarmint Louie Gohmert is fighting for liberty, y’all. And Freedom and crap.
Louie took to the House floor to make a speech about the federal government interfering with his barbequing rights. Holy hell, y’all, this is serious. We’re talking barbeque.
“About seven years ago, the Architect of the Capitol, who works for the House and Senate, had decided that we all work for him and started making demands. One of which was, I could not cook ribs and share them with other members of Congress,” Gohmert said.
Liberty! Gohmert wants some damn Liberty!
Gohmert says he cooked ribs on his office balcony “quarterly” up until seven years ago. Then some government agent came along and said that an open fire the House hasn’t always ended up very well. Now what’s he supposed to do? Cook somewhere else? You know, like people who don’t have an office balcony?
I ain’t saying that Louie seems to be having a plenty easy time buying barbeque. And I wonder if his congressional friends know he ain’t doing the cooking of these “great” ribs. Or his $6668 barbeque?
Our friend John says there are only four balconies in the House Office building and none of them appear to belong to Louie Gohmert. I am under the assumption that they all belong to us. And in my mind, they should be used properly – to roast weenies.
Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
