Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

You're Still Here?

Onward to Colorado Springs!

Megan McArdle gives us two posts that depend on her erroneous belief that the nation does not want health insurance reform. She can keep this up forever--why not say anything and everything when you can ignore facts and use hypotheticals you created to "prove" your opinion is factual?

We are going to hear a lot more about the eradication of Social Security and Medicare. Our elite might even be able to pull it off this time, telling various tea-baggers, libertarians, and newly poor that the government can't do anything right. It will be a lie, because lies are the only way they will be able to defend the removal of any and all social safety nets. And McArdle will cheer our elite on the entire way, despite the fact that her Masters of the Universe drove the economy into a ditch.

All it will take is a population that is both ignorant and refuses to think. And I wouldn't bet against those odds.

We already have that population, I'm afraid.

I guess the ATF & the Border Patrol are all the gov't. the two guys on the left want.

And the woman on the far right? What is she wearing, the Focus On The Family burqa? (Or, what's that wearing her?)

P. S.: The "Onward" link only leads to the photo, if you had somewhere else in mind.

Mr. B, it was just a link to the source of the picture.

Aimai, I couldn't look deeply because I didn't want to give them my email address, but it sure looks like a good way to sell e-mail lists to the people higher up on the wingnut food chain, and t-shirts to the rubes.

The Abigail Adams Project was conceived by Kimberly Fletcher, CEO of Homemakers for America Inc.

Set the WABAC Machine: "Homemakers for America."

That's the best Tea Party picture yet! I used to live and work in Sedona. It is 5/10th retirees, 3/10th second homes and a sprinkling of actual middle class people who can barely afford it, but love the scenery. Like the Sarah Palin worship, this shows that TPers are simply Republicans by a different name. Most of the people who, in the words of George Bailey, do the working and living in Sedona, commute from elsewhere.
