Virgil Peck the Redneck

Well the Republicans are doing themselves proud lately. Is there something other than tea in the pot? Kansas State representative, Virgil Peck, Peck suggested during a state appropriations committee meeting that, ”  It might be a good idea to control illegal immigration the way the feral hog population has been controlled — with hunters shooting from helicopters.” Peck, represents the Tyro Kansas area located in the southeastern section of the state. When questioned about his remark, good old boy Peck, barked, “I was just speaking as a Southeast Kansas person.” Apparently, he is under the impression the entire southeastern part of Kansas has similar beliefs.

We’ll certainly know how the electorate feels after the next election. However, if they feel disgraced being represented by such a classless individual, then let’s see the recall process begin. It’s unimaginable to many of us how people with similar beliefs actually get elected. It is simply because they’re from a Republican district?

Virgil, lets shoot them Peck

W e’ re unsure how Peck would want to handle pregnant immigrants since he is a strong right to life advocate. One can only wonder.

But wait a minute — what about Kansas State Republican Representative, Connie O’Brien who has the magical ability to determine an individual’s citizenship status simply by the color of their skin. At a recent state hearing about in-state tuition being granted to undocumented immigrants, the Republican representative made the following comment into the record.

REP. O’BRIEN: My son who’s a Kansas resident, born here, raised here, didn’t qualify for any financial aid. Yet this girl was going to get financial aid. My son was kinda upset about it because he works and pays for his own schooling and his books and everything and he didn’t think that was fair. We didn’t ask the girl what nationality she was, we didn’t think that was proper. But we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country. […]

State Rep. Gatewood asked this question:  Can you expand on how you could tell that they were illegal?

And O’Brien answered: Well she wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian, and she had the olive complexion.

O’Brien stated then that when asked repeatedly for personal documentation, the student indicated she did not have any. We assume O’Brien was intimidating that the coed was illegal because she could not provide documentation, however why was she there to receive financial aid without documentation. I am inclined to believe that Rep. Connie O’Brien was not telling the truth at the hearing. I find it hard to believe someone would request monies due them without documentation.

Just for the record, nearly 50,000,000 Americans are from a culture which typically has olive complected skin. Once again, something other than tea is brewing in the pot.
