    Well, duh.

    The solution is so simple, even a Geico spokesman can do it.

    All that needs doing is one of the following:

    1. At any given moment, at least 1/3 (preferably 1/2) of the population should be airborne (jumping, hopping, or at least one foot up in the air), or:
    2. Pick about a thousand democrats, and volunteer them to be anchored to the underside of the island. Democrats make very good counterweights. The top-heavy, non-functioning cranial unit allows for some good counter-balancing.

    You know, when I first looked at this, I thought, "Wow...this must be an April Fool's Day joke. No one...even a Democratic Congressman...is that stupid."

    I stand corrected. This guy is indeed stupid. Meta-stupid.

    Can you imagine someone as monumentally ignorant as this congressman getting paid $150K per year anywhere else, for anything??

    Wow. This guy probably has an IQ of 2...and it takes 3 to grunt.

    And he gets to make laws??? God help us.

    I wish I had the spiritual courage to deride and belittle people when they make a mistake.

    I am also glad that no one has the need (or desire) to analyze everything I say for when I sound foolish.

    This isn't making a mistake. This is just plain, old fashioned, stupidity. This character has no business in the House.

    preachinjesus, there are mistakes and then there are mistakes. Some mistakes show our slip of the tongues or incorrect information we received or honest oversights.

    Other mistakes show our utter ignorance.

    It's frightening to some that this ignorance - whether it be sheer ignorance or his being under the influence of the experimental drugs that he is taking for his Hepatitis C - it's frightening that this type of "mistake" is from one who controls our lives via the law.

    I cannot 100% confirm his Hepatitis C nor the experimental drugs, it's just what is posted on the net.

    Take it with a grain of salt.

    He comes from the same district that elected Cynthia McKinny. They simply traded one lame dud for another.

    Really not surprised. The global warming crowd believes that the melting of the ice caps would produce a drastic increase in the sea levels, not taking into account water displacement, something even Bill Nye the Science Guy could teach them.

    Right-o. Once again...this is not "mistake," this is stupid multiplied upon itself stupid. Quasar-stupid.

    Let me treat you like many here treat CTB.

    Now I am not addressing this to you, just showing how CTB is often treaded by many of the conservatives here.

    Now, to the OP. This is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard from either a democrat or a republican. This video should be mailed to each one of his constituents before the next election.

    Yes, I needed to mention he was a democrat. I hate the democrat agenda and enjoy pointing out the stupid things they do. I don't act as if I am a bipartisan bystander. Crabby does. I openly admit that I am against the democrat agenda and will point out every idiotic thing I see.

    I have noticed the ultra right wing here, who claim to be Christians are not fair in the things they post and dispute about with CTB. I don't always agree with him, but I try to be fair.

    After listening to him many times now, I don't think he actually believed that Guam could tip over. I think he was trying to make a point, and thought this would be the best way to do so.

    Nobody takes seriously any risk of us increasing the likelihood of Guam tipping over = nobody takes seriously any risk of us increasing the likelihood of any harmful environmental impact on this island.

    Oh give me a break...he wasn't trying to make some point. He clearly said the island would tip over and capsize. Why make excuses for this bozo?

    Agreed. There is no excuse for this type of ignorance, in Congress, no less.

    Well we don't really know do we? What is more likely that a grown man that has actually been to this island before believes that it can capsize and tip over or that someone might say something outrageous in order to draw attention to a point he wants to make?

    Guam will in fact be deluged with military personnel beginning next year
    and Guam's population will absolutely bloat.
    Navy, marines, and Air Force personnel from Okinawa and Japan will be transferring all their personnel and materiel to the island and it is expected that a frenzy of constructions will begin soon.
    The sad thing about it is that the construction jobs will not benefit the local people, who are US Citizens and Residents, by the way, because for some reason the Federal Government has decided to award the constructions to foreigners, meaning Filipinos, Japanese, Taiwanese, etc., and the Guamanians' only way to benefit from this influx of potential incomes will be to set up boarding houses and such for the military personnel and their families.
