Hartzler (MO) - ALEC Embarassment or Not?

Vicky Hartzler is really an embarrassment to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) – or maybe not.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) told a crowd of her constituents that she is no more convinced of President Obama’s birth place as anyone asking the question:

I don’t know, I haven’t seen it. I’m just at the same place you are on that. You read this, you read that. But I don’t understand why he didn’t show that right away. I mean, if someone asked for my birth certificate, I’d get my baby book and hand it out and say ‘Here it is,’ so I don’t know.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) spoke at an event organized by the Family Research Council to mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade this morning and urged anti-choice advocates to plaster pictures of babies and aborted fetuses to recruit more people to their cause. “I’m a big believer in visuals,” she said. “Most Americans learn through pictures and so if you have some brochures that you leave on the table at your dorm

HARTZLER: I agree, I think so. Christianity is the main religion in our country and as a policy for the Department of Defense we need to defend the practice of religion but we do not have to obligate taxpayer funds to facilitate or accommodate it or pay for it.

They should be defending the basic rights that we have, that freedom of religion here, and certainly not facilitating or accommodating fringe religions. It’s crazy.

HARTZLER: For instance, you know, if you just care about somebody and you have a committed relationship, why not allow one man and two women, or three women to marry? There are a lot of people in this country that support polygamy. Why not? If they’re committed to each other, why should you care?

Why not allow group marriage? There are people out there who want that. I think it’s call polyamory, it’s got some big name. But anyway, group marriage, I understand it. Well, is that the best policy?

Why not allow an uncle to marry his niece? Why not allow a 50-year-old man to marry a 12-year-old girl if they love each other and they’re committed?

So, pretty soon, if you don’t set parameters, you don’t have any parameters at all, the license means nothing — the marriage means nothing. It’s their right to marry whoever they want, but we’re saying marriage is between a man and a woman. So, there’s a difference there.

Representative Vicky Hartzler (r): Okay. Excellent. Excellent point. You're, you're spot on. I, I joined the, the name of the caucus is China caucus which I wish we'd change, change the name. But basically it's a watch China caucus. It's a, it's a bunch of us who are concerned about China. And on a regular basis we get reports [inaudible] watching what they're doing.

And I am concerned. They are shipping all the, I'm concerned about the microchips. That they are in many, many of the things that we own. And some of those are embedded, I believe, with, with detection and, uh, capabilities or tracking capabilities. Things that we don't know. I, I read a report the other day talking how China is the number one spy network in the world. And I thought, we need to have a new, uh, double oh seven James Bond movie, you know, with China as the bad guys, as the spies, because really, it's true, those movies always portray, uh, Russia or something.

ALEC nut job - maybe, maybe not.
