Why we shouldn't re-elect Don Young

I've been working on this editorial, going through Young's voting history public commentary (and they ARE appalling). Here's what I've got so far: so much seniority the guy's a fossil (we need some fresh ideas); actually bragging about bringing in pork (he really likes being known as a spendthrift and source of government waste!--think bridge); privately funded trips; homophobia; really rude and discourteous language to just about anybody, including high-school students; according to Young, there is no such thing as global warming or shrinking glaciers; again, per Donny-boy, his opinion is of equal weight to the years of study and analysis conducted by thousands of scientists worldwide; major campaign funding for years from VECO, Wal-Mart, and Carnival Corp. (the cruise ship company)--big biz from Outside, note; votes for the bankruptcy bill (you know, the one that screws you in the event of major medical or weather catastrophe), the Energy Policy Act (the one that gave all those tax breaks to the oil companies and hardly any support to renewable energy), and for the National Uniformity for Food Act, that prevents Alaska from requiring farmed fish labeling or GM fish labeling....

anyway, that's a start. If anyone out there has some other reasons why we shouldn't re-elect this man, let me know. I'll be writing 'em all up and putting 'em in my editorial.

If I remember correctly, the honorable Donald Young stated just after 9-11, "it must be an act of environmental terrorists." What a moron.

and his very close ties to abromoff scandals, seldom discussed in this state, as well as his successful efforts to remove marine mammal environmental restrictions for the military weapon testing in protected areas. recall too that the photo showing 'floridian' voters protesting against a gore recount were actually from Young's DC office -

He's the recumbant! What other reason do you need? That and he's a complete jerk faced, scum sucking, dog kicking, lite-beer drinking, tyrant kissing, pig-trough wallowing, Hummer driving, Walmart shopping, baby slapping, finger sniffing, Depends wearing, egg sucking, buggy man dreaming, children scaring, law stomping freak!
Darn right he is.

now, now, language! I'd like to hang him with his own words and actions...they're bad enough.

What's wrong with Lite-beer?
