HOW this man ever made it as a politician with his horrific speech is beyond me. I am a speech pathologist and if that kind of speech can take someone to Congress, then what is the point of speech therapy at all?

When put in conflict, which is more important, the right to life or the right to own a gun if you are a criminal who has demonstrated a probability to reoffend? What would have happened if the Federal government did not step in when the KKK was raging across the south hanging and killing blacks and whites who supported Dr. King among others? Nothing would have happened because the disenfranchised Blacks of the South would not have had the opportunity to remove their abusive governments. It is far better to prevent a death in retrospect than to mourn the death after a lynching, LBJ knew this, which is why protections save American lives.

In the 1930s in response to the drop of the stock market having to with overspending and non-sustainable investments in the 1920s Congress and the President put in security programs protecting the stock market from further crashes. Despite the oil crisis of the 1970s and another smaller dip in the early 1990s the economy did not collapse until 2008 when the protections put in place by Roosevelt had been removed. I bet he took economics as well as history.

I think we can conclude that people in Mass are incredibly stupid…… They put the pathetic moron back in office. The second brain cell must have died.

Hmm the men who are corrupt, Barney Frank and Senator Dodd are pushing this financial reform. Barney Frank and Senator Schumer said in 2002 that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are not facing a crisis when in fact, they were. The democrats are the one who passed the bill to give people who cannot afford a mortgage payment, a house. then they bailed them out, and the people are in foreclosure again! How absurd! Now they are talking about another bailout for foreclosure again. Spend, Spend, Spend is all they do. They are not fixing the solution. These people CANNOT afford a mortgage so why are the american people bailing them out and the money is just being thrown in the garbage??
When they bailed out general motors people lost their life savings when they crashed. However, the goverment didn’t care about these poor people, instead the auto unions got money!

Barney, Barney, Barny. You are the most wasteful person in Congress with our money. You have become a traget for removal from office and to be placed in the unemployment lines in 2010.

It doesn’t take long to corrupt a man? As far as I can see you’re in the hole so far you don’t know which way is up!!

A traitor is one who betrays another’s trust or is false to an obligation or duty ~ The time has come in American when those, in service, stop making a living off of those that work.

Why didn’t the good people of Massachusetts vote NO to Barney Fudd last election?

I hope congressman Frank is spending some money on speech therapy….he and the other 534 idiots certainly make enough. Speaking of that……..the moron has the gall to suggest that some people’s salaries should be capped. Who’s capping the salaries of the members of congress? They’ve been taking the taxpayers to the cleaners for years. We need to wake up America and start demanding that the bozo’s in Washington earn their pay and work for the people that sent them there. Let’s give them a wake up call next year……….vote the idiots out.

GovOwnsU 11/05/2009 5:23pm

Barney Frank, you are the most ARROGANT, RUDE little boy I have ever seen. I have watched you on several occasions and you use Alinsky tactics and try to humiliate those who disagree with you. You yell and you tell EVERYONE that they interrupt you, trying to monopolize conversations. That, you fool, is because you keep yapping and never let anyone get a word in! If they disagree with you, God help them, right? I wish your constiuents would GIVE YOU THE BOOT!

THE BANKING QUEEN!

How incredibly stupid are you people in Massachusetts? Have you people not even 2 brain cells amongst you rub together? Why do you idiots continue to re-elect complete morons like Barney Frank? Its pathetic… I mean really, elect a Democrat, elect a Republican, elect which ever party you want, but please, can you people be any dumber than to elect someone like Barney Frank?

DO NOT RE-ELECT THIS IDIOT!

yyzrd 08/19/2009 7:46am

oh by the way Barn, don’t feel alone, we are calling for any member of congress or the senate who voted on the stimulous bill with-out reading it, Republican or Democrat to re-sign immediately for breaking their oath of office.

yyzrd 08/19/2009 7:32am
This guy thinks he is “better and smarter” than his constituents…..and has a huge ego…….he needs to go back to his male prostitution business in the basement of his house(remember that fine example for the youngsters of the community)…………..Barney probably doesn’t read these, you know it is below his station. But if ya do Barn, just know that we are watching, and our goal will not only include cleaning house of vermin like you, but also eliminating your benefits after you’re run out of town. So enjoy your privilage now because the country is starting to realize that the smell of stench is eminating from you

I concur. This guy reminds me of a cartoon!

CowboyRobert 07/18/2009 12:34pm

You know, I agree with myself that its highly unfair that if you grow your own stuff and smoke your own stuff why the hell does it matter? I mean, those who smoke weed either has a record or that just begining to smoke something different. Sad enough to say we have every right to smoke what ever is somkeable, right? Yea so what. I’ve been in a holding cell for 4 hours, does that make me a criminal? So freaking what, I been ticketed so many time because of a moving violation. But yet, when I smoke my stuff, it helps me ease my mind, it soothes my emotions, and hell, it gives me the best erection than a viriga does. I’ve got nothing to hide. I am an independant american that has every right to do as I please.

VirginianPatriot1861 07/07/2009 3:45pm

This guy is a disgrace. He’s a big part of what caused a lot of the problems we are having right now and I hope the people in his State wake up and realize he needs to be fired. I don’t want to see this clown reelected EVER again.

FIRE FRANK!

You Should not be ashamed to be an American for our Representatives in Washington do not represent the GREAT Citizens of the UNITED STATES of America. In FACT they are a disgrace to this Great Nation and should all be thrown out of office for Treason on the highest level. they do not uphold the Constitution to which they swore an oath and this alone should be a crime punishable by impeachment at the least. We are a Great Nation under GOD and they on the otherhand are pathetic human beings and they deserve recognition as such.

jodamur 06/06/2009 10:47am

Barney Frank says their is 0% inflation On what planet is he referring to? The Federal Reserve Is Destroying the value of the dollar at an alarming rate and they have no intention of slowing this process down until they have succeeded in destroying our currency. New World Order and currency is their ultimate goal. Barney Frank is the chairman of the Finance committee and has no intention of calling for a vote on HR-1207 to audit the FEDERAL RESERVE. I would like to know who voted for this so called representative of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA? He is a pathetic Human Being and a sorry representative to BOOT.

americanpilot 05/24/2009 7:08am

Barney Frank- Even looks like that green and purple monstosity. Him and all the other democraps and some republicans should be deported out of the country. They are sooo smart, send them to Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia. Let them set up a government there. That fat loud mouthed jackass!

Quahog 04/30/2009 5:10pm

Barney Frank should be run out of congress for his support of the bailout bill and for his support of the Wall Street crooks

Repeating a lie will never make it a truth.

Rep. Barney “The Dino” Frank is a domestic enemy of the United States Constitution. Full stop. HR 1022 is a violation of the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment. You have violated your oath of office and should be removed.
