The milk of human kindness has curdled. The party of TEA is the party of ME.
In the mid-fifties, the population of the U.S. was 55 million. Now it is over 308 million. More than five times as many people. This is the main reason government has gotten bigger. It had to.
The Tea Party, the party of NO taxes, no government, unfettered unregulated business, the party of selfishness, the party of stampeding bull elephants that will trash the environment, health care, and trample everything in their path, has tunnel vision. The Tea Partiers can only see the country as it was “back when,” and they want to return to those days. The fifties and all the decades since are gone. We can only go forward. Change threatens everyone, and the white Christian element cannot tolerate the idea that they will soon be a minority. That's what taking back "values" means.
Get used to it, folks.
Thomas Wolfe said it best. You can’t go home again. Heraclitus said, “you cannot step into the same river twice,” but of course the know-nothings who "no" everything wouldn’t dig Thomas Wolfe or Heraclitus. Bet you anything that Sharon, Christine and Sarah, those weird sisters, wouldn’t know Heraclitus from Zorba the Greek, and are proud of it!
In spite of their professed religious pieties, the Tea Party is morally bankrupt and lacking in social conscience as well as charity. Maybe they should read their New Testaments. The eye of the needle and all that.
The mainstream press is afraid to tell it like it is. It’s like we are all living on a horrible no-exit reality show and the bimbos and really dumb blonds are in the driver’s seat. And NOT at Harvard.
I hope some of the 308 millions of voting age wise up before it’s too late. Drinking the tea may be drinking the hemlock.
