Baggers in the Sky with Diamonds

Tea Baggers to Arms, to arms, they want to end a NASA program. First, I doubt that a majority of Americans can tell you what NASA means. There are just a few problems with the Tea Party outraged for the continued funding of the space program. First of all, the Tea Party doesn’t like science and space travel is all science. A majority of the Tea Partiers are Christian and a majority of those are young-earther’s which is the modern equivalent of flat-earthers. People who believe, like Sarah Palin, that the Earth/universe is 6,000 years old and dinosaur fossils were planted by Satan to trick us. I only say that they are mostly Christian because as stated by Palin the real America isn't east-coast secualrists. I can only assume that means mid-western atheists by association. I find it hilarious that these mostly scientifically-ignorant people, who don’t believe in science are so aghast at the end-run of a space program that was defunded under the Bush administration. Their best guess is that the spaceship is powered by magic Jesus dust and astronauts pass God and angels sitting on clouds as they shoot into space. Space, which was created 6,000 years ago by their almighty God, you remember, is the final frontier. Now it’s about the technology and the jobs. But, do you really want a government agency to be a jobs program? So, if they don’t want the science, since all scientists are liars beholden to their god Darwin, and they don’t want government creating jobs what do they want from NASA? I guess really when it comes down to it they just appreciate a good memory-foam mattress to kneel next to as they talk under their breath to the omnipotent, imaginary father-figure-in-the-sky.

May I present the monarchy of anarchy...

First, they are the party of no government and self-proclaimed party of “no.” So, why vote for them to have a government job if they don’t like the government? Go get one of those private industry jobs that are so easy to find nowadays. I mean, afterall, you are just inflating the unemployment numbers by being employed by the government. They would rather shut everything down than have a debate about what is actually going on and what needs to be done. So, when they lose instead of becoming the reasonable minority adding to the debate, they close down debate and offer nothing but their backs; throwing fits like my four-year-old. Yelling out obscenities, not able to wait their turn to speak, not respecting the decorum and comity of the Congress or Senate. And I’m not talking about the protestors, they can do whatever the hell they want, I’m talking about the ‘leaders,’ the elected representatives.

These are the same people who whined,“Reagan [-Christ] never even took his jacket off in the oval office.” Then their elected representatives, not once, but twice have breached common etiquette and protocol in the Chamber. They are like an uncontrollable four-year-old throwing fits and tantrums, who can’t wait their turn in line or to speak. They can’t follow simple rules we learn in Kindergarten.

Next, the party is full of nepotism. It’s passed from one dynasty to the next. First the Bush’s now the Cheneys. There is always an heir apparent and it seems to always be in the bloodline of one of the former party leaders. Republicans are the party of monarchies and dynasties. Not to mentions Struass and the Kristols the fathers of neo-conservativism, more properly called neo-liberalism, but that is for another day.

Next, they defend the undefendable and sell America out at any cost. Liz Cheney has decided to defend her father’s oil cartel buddy Karzai after he made comments saying that he might join the Taliban. If anything they should be calling for his head not defending him. But oil is worth more than the American soldier putting his ass on the line to prop up that puppet regime so Halliburton can put their pipeline in Black Sea. They are essentially selling the American soldier down the road out of their loyalty to a drug-oil cartel. What do you know? Their foreign policy is exactly the same as their domestic policy. Prop up the drug-oil cartels at any and all costs. Drill, baby, drill. Kill, baby, kill.

I guess you have to ask yourself, do you want to be a member of the party of crying four-year-olds who didn’t get their way so they’re taking their ball and going home? Well, do you?

The whole debate from liberal to conservative, dove to hawk, pro-choice to pro-life, isolationist to neo-con (neo-lib) can be had in the Democratic Party. What use do we have for a bunch of whining crybabies who just take their toys and go home when we have some serious ‘playing’ to do?
