One way you attach a huge bullseye to your chest and beg God to smite you

is to, like Hawaii Democrat State Rep. Tom Brower, roam the streets looking for homeless people so you can make their lives even more miserable by smashing their stuff.

God, in his mercy, doesn’t typically strike people like this dead, leaving only a greasy spot on the sidewalk. But if you are looking for the sort of thing that might achieve that result, this is definitely a contender.

Rep. Brower, just to jog your memory, here is the judgment you are tempting:

Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes. – Amos 2:6

Then he will say to those at his left hand, “Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was homeless and you smashed my stuff.”

Two observations:

1. Democrats are the party of the underdog? Riiiiiiight.
2. This guy has served five terms. Hawaii, what the hell is the matter with you?
