WHEREAS, Secretary of State John F. Kerry has suggested that air conditioners are as big a threat as ISIS, and
WHEREAS, it is the duty of our elected and appointed government officials to lead by example,
THEREFORE, we call upon the U.S. Department of State to remove air conditioning from all property that the Department owns, rents, or otherwise employs, including but not limited to embassies, consulates, office buildings, etc., all vehicles owned and/or operated by the Department, and any other property, real or movable, owned, rented, or otherwise employed by the Department.

He meant to say only for Republicans. Democrats are always exempt from harsh treatment.
Good idea. U.S. Department of State personnel will have to start wearing their Beanie Copters.
Oh, I’d like to see that!
And their JET planes.
The “US” GOPe Congress could do this,
BUT the utter hatred of the GOPe for voters
makes it impossible.
Ryan and Cruz will submit complicitly,
as always for those perks on AF1.
Petition: Remove air conditioning from all US State Department property.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
See what you’ve started?
My air conditioner has been blown.
Vehicles are explicitly mentioned.
Yes if it wasn’t for the war in Iraq, we would still have A/C.
Now even my Cadillac’s A/C won’t work!
We have been had.
Also, as electric current is generated from non-renewable coal fired power plants which are known to generate CO2 which contributes to anthropomorphic climate change, air conditioners as used in this act shall include all devices that consume electric current to circulate air.
Also, any Department of State employee who criticizes this act orally or in writing shall be found guilty of violating this act and shall be fined not less than $1000 per instance of criticism of this act. The fine shall be deducted from the employee’s paycheck.
I see a loophole: They might use slaves with fans.
liberals should all go live in stone age conditions and leave the rest of us alone.
It is for the children to treat us like children on plantation
Politicians should lead by example, obama care or VA plans for thier families, no more secret service protection because of guns, no more AC to help defeat ISIS
Punka, large, manually operated fan. Wallah, a person engaged in menial labor. Which is why I thought it was funny that it briefly became fashionable among the pundit class in this benighted country to use “wallah” to mean “nabob”. “Pundit”, from the Hindi, “Pandit”, teacher, or expert.
They were probably confused by “Shakespeare Wallah”, a 1965 Merchant Ivory film. The story and screenplay are about a traveling family theater troupe of English actors in India, who perform Shakespeare plays in towns across India, amidst a dwindling demand for their work and the rise of Bollywood.
Don’t forget Kerry also warned about refrigerators, so no refrigerators should be allowed on State Dept. premises. Surely the EPA should join this ban against air conditioning and refrigeration. It’s for the children, you know.
