I think this is pretty dead on.

We don’t get to see the movie about Darwin discovering evolution and struggling with faith because heaven forbid we have a small art house movie provide some introspection for us to examine our own faith and beliefs. No, we need someone else to tell us how evil it is. Don’t believe them, those scientists are horrible people who spread lies with their empirical evidence and their scientific method. I have a book. Everything you need to know is in this book. But not just any one of this book. It has to be my version which has only the parts I and this James guy approve. Don’t read Darwin. He deal in facts.
Obviously there wasn’t enough God involved.
The only one of them who really seems to think about, well, things, and make good choices for her constituents, based on facts and reason. Damn shame. Sen. Rockefeller hints at the pressure, and that she’s considering switching sides.
So your credit card company starts you at 12.99% then gets over-leveraged on bad investments mostly due to greed, then they double your card rates just to cover their own mistakes while rewarding the people who made the bad investments. Get out the guillotine and start chanting “Liberty”!
The birther queen has really let this whole forgery thing go to her head. I wonder if she believes in her own birth certificate?
Yes, Steve King (R-IA) thinks Katrina victims and New Orleans didn’t need any help.
Hm, what a surprise they are for big business and against what would be good for people. Net neutrality affects what voices are heard, what data is available to you and a lot more than you’d think.
Of course, this could just be another example of the “Party of no” Republicans. The Dems are for it, so obviously it must threaten our freedoms and our way of life, except that net neutrality is about freedom…I wonder how they justify this?
Let’s think about this just a little bit. When’s the last time too little regulation worked out well for America? Let’s go back to the current meltdown. Or maybe the Savings and Loan Collapse, or the manufactured energy crisis in California, or Enron, or the oil speculation market, or the, well, the list keeps going. This is a fallacy of Libertarianism that just has to die.
There’s two kinds of Libertarians. One seeks free markets because the feel an unimpeded market will do what is best for it. They’re wrong. The market is driven by greed, not sense and practicality, and we’re reminded all too often (usually with an economic collapse and millions of Americans suffering) when that greed gets too overbearing.
The second is even more naive. The second believes that without interference, the markets will naturally do what is best for Americans and itself in a very altruistic way. This is the Ayn Rand, theory, but they are the Trekkies of the political world, relegated to the fringes of politics by their inability to recognize social dynamics. They stand over in the corner, sneering at the rest of us and our inability to see how great their idea really is.
But you know what I may have this group wrong. They may be the punk rockers of the political world, marginalized and sneering at authority, ready to trash a hotel room for their cause. Yeah, the altruistic libertarian is the Sex Pistols of politics, Ron Paul, the Johnny Rotten of them all.
I guess this would make the Michele Bachmann sort into the Pop Punk movement, out to make a buck while barely being competent at their trade.
Either way, we’re fucked.
