Tea among the Ruins…


I am amused by all the bleating about dysfunction in Washington, particularly as we now have exactly what half the country wanted in the last election. We, the People, elected a divided government precisely because we didn’t want anyone to get their way. We sealed the deal by electing enough Tea Party candidates to ensure gridlock. They have stated time and again that they will not settle for anything other than total victory or “death.” Anyone else see a parallel between AlQuaeda and the Tea Party? A group of idealogue fundamentalists, co-opted to wage a dirty war, who then turn on their handlers and cause untold chaos and destruction on anyone that gets in their way: and I include the leader of their own party! Let me expand on this..their dogged, commitment to a fundamental ideology will bring down our economy and do untold damage to our system of government on a parallel to 9/11. And before anyone says” yes, but without the human cost.” Let’s check back in a year or two and count the number of veterans who have succumbed to reduced care, disaster victims who have succumbed to a reduced FEMA budget, homeless and starving who have succumbed to a vastly reduced safety net, victims of asthma and bronchial conditions who have succumbed to increased pollution …the list of shame will go on and on…That is what the Tea Party stands for and that is who we handed the reins of power to.
