I tell you, people are absolutely insane, and some of the biggest loonies can be found on Capitol Hill. Take, for example, Senator Ernie Chambers (D) of Nebraska. FOX News.com has reported on an exceedingly frivolous lawsuit filed by Senator Chambers:
"Nebraska Democratic State Senator Ernie Chambers has decided to go straight to the top in an effort to stop natural disasters from befalling the world. Chambers filed a lawsuit against God in Douglas County Court Friday afternoon, KPTM Fox 42 reported."How did Senator Chambers decide to file suit against God in Douglas County? "Chambers bases his ability to sue God, as, 'that defendant, being omnipresent, is personally present in Douglas County.' "
What was the man's quarrel with God? Apparently, Sen. Chambers is suing God for causing "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornados, pestilential plagues..." - natural disasters.
When asked to explain his reasoning behind the lawsuit, Sen. Chambers declared that he really had nothing against God. He merely filed the suit as a protest against other senators' bills proposing restrictions on frivolous law suits.
Um, Senator Chambers, I think you just proved that such bills are, in fact, necessary!
