And You Thought The Rightwads Couldn’t Get Any Dumber…

When it comes to putting two and two together, wingtards are incapable of making simple cognitive connections that a 5-year-old could make.

Take last Saturday’s Million Moron March (please!). (H/T to Bee for coining “Million Moron March.”)

While they were blubbering about being “Taxed Enough Already” and “Too Much Government,” thousands of them were riding Washington DC’s mass transit system around the city. No, they didn’t see the irony — are you kidding, you had to ask?!? — that this transit system was created by those inept faceless government bureaucrats that they hate, and it’s maintained by that socialist system of wealth redistribution (i.e. taxes).

But that’s not where the story ends. Ridership was twice what it usually is on Saturdays, because of all the afterbirthers and teabaggers clogging the city. And these pusbags were furious at the overcrowded trains and slow service, which was caused by their presence.

They want government to be shrunk down to the size of a bathtub, and at the same time, when they themselves need to catch a train, there had better be a timely uncrowded taxpayer-financed train ready for them right there on the spot, Right Now!

Fellow Teabagger Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) has actually written a letter to the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority (WMATA), expressing his fury that these anti-tax bootstrapping teabaggers didn’t have more taxpayers’ money lavished on them.


And that’s not all! In Florida (where else?!?), a “Christian” group has proposed an amendment to the state constitution which would ban birth control. (?!?!?!?!?)

Let’s see now, they’re against abortion; and yet prohibiting birth control would increase the number of abortions, so how in the —

Oh forget it…

What else would you expect? It cannot have escaped anyone that a lot of the healthscare cretins are most certainly Social Security/Medicare recipients.

Many of those people are barely making it. Those are not rich people and they see all this wasteful spending going on that has done absolutely nothing but line their cronies pockets and meanwhile people are losing their jobs at record rates and the spender in chief is looking towards higher taxes for those who are barely getting by to pay for an big expansion of more bankrupt programs and the cap and tax bill that is looming in the shadows.
Yeah they're angry when they see their tax dollars at work to pay union thugs and ACORN criminals.
Meanwhile Pelosi allows water to be shut on California farmland and creates more poverty yet she allows it for her 20 million dollar vineyard because the environmentalists also have the dems in their pockets.
But hey at least we can get free health care as a default program to unemployment so they can turn that system over to the SEIU thugs who will be holding their hands out to the workers like Tony Soprano.
You complain about the republicans embolden to the religious right? The democrats have been taken over by radical extremists who obviously don't give a rat's ass about anyone but themselves.
Everything they touch turns to shit. And I quote the spender in chief "You Ain't seen nothing yet"

Yep Chains we can beleive in or Carter on steroids.

Tom - The blubbering masses in DC complaining about the Metro, doesn't that just about sum them up, they have no idea on what government is, what government does and what government is for.

Government isn't perfect, far from it, Democracy isn't perfect, but it's best way of running a country mankind has managed to come up with. There will be improvements to the system, if only we can look past these poor manipulated masses of people, who think paying no taxes is the answer to all their problems.

Banning birth control would be like prohibition, just an encouragement for lots of people to break the law.

Yes they are angry and rightfully so. Or maybe they are just a bunch of bible thumping racists being you have yourselves convinced that's what they all are.

Jesus Christ, you are an idiot. Your beloved monkey Messiah racked up more debt by himself than the 42 Presidents before him managed to COMBINED, and he did most of that via cutting taxes on the wealthiest 2% and starting a war for nothing. Where were you THEN? Your heroes in the Rushpubliscum Party are responsible for 83% of the national debt. Why weren't you screaming THEN?

Yeah-you and the rest of the McVeigh admierers didn't have a Dogdamned thing to say about that-but let someone suggest that maybe we should get a handle on healthcare so that those who die needlessly might not, and you scream COMMANISM!!! Many of those "barely making it" will be wiped completely out by one illness, but you're too f*cking stupid to understand that. As a matter of fact, you're probably too stupid to wipe.

Why don't you go here, or here, where your kind of inbred stupidity is welcomed and lauded?

JR: No doubt most of them are on either Social Security, Medicare, or disability payments of some sort. But it's comminism if anybody else should have a similar safety net.

I checked out those 2 rightwing links just briefly. They're got some pieces of work over there. I was almost tempted to steer Lisa over to "Jenn of the Jungle" -- that site goes further off the deep end every time I look.

Lisa: The people who are "barely making it" aren't the ones whose taxes might go up. "SEIU thugs" and "Tony Soprano"? Ooookay.

I don't have anything good to say about Nancy Pelosi, so you're wasting your time on that one.

Holte: That story about the DC teabaggers has got to be the biggest "unclear on the concept" story ever. And trying to ban birth control? Don't those people have lives?

J: "Don't let your fax machine get overheated" LOL.

I found it amusing that many of those teabaggers were dressed in period costumes, must really make them wish for the good old days.

After all they wear the costume of Male, White, Property Owning Slaveowners. The only ones of that day who were allowed to vote.

Erik: Yeah, those colonial costumes were too ridiculous. A few weeks ago I saw a YouTube of somebody dressed like that while he was giving a speech. I guess he was pretending to be one of the Founding Fathers, appalled at the lazy socialists we've all degenerated into.

I am not defending the republican party what am I doing is showing what you have now which is old 1960 radical Bill Ayers/Bernadine Dorne/Alinsky types getting their freak on to make up for their lack of governing experience and "regressive" not "progressive" policies and tactics that frankly no one has the patience for it being they didn't work in Germany and they have no place in our culture. It's counter-productive and just plain fantasy.
Did you hear Pelosi citing violence and acting all "concerned" and the state run media promoting class warfare and race baiting. Obam should get out there and tell them to cut the crap but he's not,why?
Most of us know that doesn't work because it never did and never will. It's an age old socialist tactic, used by the National Socialists in Germany, the Bolshevics in Russia and all thru S. America.
And the left frankly is acting like children by spending irresponsibly and sticking their noses in places they are clueless about and causing more unemployment and despair just so they can experiment with their silly ideas.
But hey we get free health care out of even though we can't keep food on the table and a roof over our heads.
There's a saying "If you can't get a loaf of bread from the government,where will you get it from?
and of course we all know this famous on"A government big enough to give you everything you need is powerful enough to take it away"

It can't lead to anything good. Never did,never will.

I believe the koolaid is your drink.
Now get back to work being the White House declared we are out of the recession.
You forgot to call me a racist but I see you are finding new terms to ry and end the conversation.
I guess you agree the huge deictis your were crying about for the last 8 years now is okay because it is going to good things now.
By the way where has all this spending gone? Anyone?

Let me see 45,000 people have died for lack of health care. The right wants to keep the status quo. If those deaths were from the flu you'd never hear the end of the screaming from the right. You scream about government until a real disaster comes along and then it's send in the military, call FEMA and then you complain because the last republican president cut their budget and filled their ranks with morons.

Carlos: Those "Christians" are probably against health care reform and anything else that might save lives. As soon as the fetus gets born, it's no longer sacred.

JR: That's true, Jenn gets thrashed a lot, but she sure does pounce on anyone who leaves a disagreeing comment at her blog. Not Jenn herself so much, but some of her fellow wingnuts are twice as vicious as she is.

Randal: I don't know about sugar, but that kool-aid is made from the tried-and-true talking points of Karl Rove and Frank Luntz. Made from the best stuff on earth.

Lisa: As long as you're talking about huge budget deficits -- the newest Rolling Stone has a quote from Dick Armey where he admits that this whole thing was part of their strategy. He says the spending and the bailouts got out of control during Bush's presidency, but the public didn't start getting outraged until Obama took over and inherited everything.

Demeur: Good description; you've got the Republican mentality dialed. Those California fires brought out the same mentality. Somebody was talking about all these California millionaires who think the private sector is God, and government is evil, but when their $3 million home catches fire, they scream for the government to come charging in and rescue them.

Would you please, for Dog's sake, quit showcasing your ignorance? You are throwing together regimes that had vastly different economic platforms. Any high school history student is smarter than to post something like this.

You claim not to be defending the Rushpubliscums, but you are clearly getting most of "your" opinions from the RNC mouthpiece of FOX. No one is going to take you the least bit seriously until you actually post something that has just a little bit of intelligence behind it.

No, you frigging genius, nobody likes deficit spending, but we figure highway repair and healthcare beats the hell out of giving Paris Hilton some more coke money. It might seem like anathema to you, but you have to reinvest in the infrastructure once in awhile, or the whole house comes down.

What does your type do when your roof leaks? Put out pots and buckets?

No need to go to California, quite a firestorm going on right here.

Lisa have a go at taking the discussion somewhere, instead of just criticizing, what do you think should be happening? Obama has been dealing with the previous administration's problems since day one. What should he be doing? Perhaps keeping all the Bush supporters happy, or doing what he was elected to do. He has reached out too much to republicans already, they don't do bi-partisan when in the minority. Should he forget the people who voted for him and pander some more?

Lisa: I see lots of talk, but little substantiating proof or citing of sources.

Watching/listening to hyperbole-slinging, right-wing infotainers doesn't count as research.

If you're going to say the Left's spending has caused unemployment, prove it. I could say I saw Rush Limbaugh at a donkey show in Matamoros, Mexico - but that doesn't mean it's true...wait...um, I did see Rush at a donkey show in Matamoros, Mexico. Bad analogy, but I think even you might be able to get my point. ;-)

Lisa: Dear, you are telling us nothing we haven't already heard from Beck/Limbaugh/et.al., and yes, some of us do listen to them. When you have something worthwhile to contribute, then we'd love to hear it. Criticism for criticism's sake with no alternative is nothing but a lot of hooey that, frankly, we've all read a million times over from people who are much better at writing it than you.

Tom: Congratulations on your new Right-Wing Stalker! You've hit the big time now:)

BTW, I didn't actually coin the Million Moron March, I stole it from a Facebook friend :)

And, great minds must think alike, because I blogged that Brady asshat last night for disrespectin' my Metro. I have lived in DC's back yard all my life, and I love that city. I LOVE the MEtro, and for some Texas cur to come in and complain about it because they didn't serve freaking caviar and brie really pissed me off. As far as I'm concerned, that whole letter he wrote to Metro Authority is Fightin' Words!

JR: I guess if a person throws out enough "isms" it's not supposed to matter that some of them are the opposite of each other. Obama is a fascist communist terrorist, plus he's a Muslim and he's just like Hitler and Stalin.

Holte: You're right, this is quite a firestorm. This blog hasn't been this lively in a long time. I haven't used any of those traffic exchange programs for a long time (BlogExplosion, BlogMad), so I've pretty much fallen off the radar. There used to be all kinds of shouting matches over here when rightwing bloggers would stop in. I've sort of missed it.

jadedj: Like you and Holte were both saying, Lisa (and Republicans in general) isn't offering any alternatives. All they do is scream "socialism" and "government takeover!" and "born in Kenya." I guess that's supposed to be a solution.

Lew: "queen of the run-on sentence!" -- LOL.

Carlos: These rightwing talking heads are making perfect use of the Big Lie technique. If Hannity and Beck and Limbaugh spew out the same shit over and over, people start believing it. No sources are necessary; Rush O'Hannity said it.

Bee: I'll have to check out your post about the Brady asshat. I can't believe people can be this dense. They don't want to pay taxes and they don't want any government meddling, but when the trains are too crowded they start screaming for somebody somewhere to do something. Duuhh!

These people who are out protesting would have a collective absolute cow if all of a sudden the government services on which they have learned to depend were taken away. Sure, let's just scale government down to where we can "drown it in the bathtub", and see how happy everyone is. A handful of survivalist or militia types might be happy, as would some politicians who would rather see our country run by a military dictatorship or theocracy... but I think the vast majority of Americans would not be satisfied at all.

Good post, Tom. I also get the impression that many of those who protest by spouting out their anti-goverment platitudes have not fully considered the consequences of that for which they ask.

Snave: It would be poetic for these "shrink government to the size of a bathtub" types to be transported into a Twilight Zone nightmare. Sort of like Vic Morrow in the Twilight Zone movie.

No streets or roads or any sort of infrastructure, no fire departments or law enforcement of any kind, no mail delivery or any electronic communication whatsoever. They'd be shouting and begging for some of that government meddling.

Let me see 45,000 people have died for lack of health care.

The left is good at throwing numbers around . Like 47 million uninsured or is it 30 million or is it really either one.?
But we'll get everyone insurance soon especially when we legalize all the illegal immigrants who weren't getting covered in the non-bill. Or are they?
Well maybe ACORN can help out with that problem. Being they are so well funded by the government. Or maybe they don't get govenmnet funding. It's just so difficult to see through all this "transparency" sometimes.
