Today is Tuesday, 25 May 2010.

White right-wingers (WR-Ws) in general, and Teabaggers (Tb-ggers) in particular, pine for a past that never existed.

The 13 Colonies, and thus the USA/USE, were multi-ethnic and bureaucratic from the git-go. It’s just that such honkies ignore Native Americans as “sub-human prey”, and Blacks as “sub-human slave workers”. Just Muzak and furniture in the background.

It took a bureaucracy to kidnap Africans, ship them across the Atlantic, and sell them in the American market.

The WR-Ws and Tb-ggers put me in mind of Harry Lime’s great speech in The Third Man. "Look down there. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you £20,000 for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money? Or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare?"

And how was the West Won? By bureaucracies which created the militias, the Continental Army, and finally the US Army, which latter, with overwhelming firepower (created by bureaucratized industries), Won the West. Not by rugged-individualist gunslingers with six-shooters. Sorry, National Handgun Murder Association (NRA).

Many Tb-ggers will give up their Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security only after you pry their cold, dead fingers from their checks. How would that be workin’ out for you, after you shrink government small enough that you can drown it in a bathtub?

I saw a woman being interviewed on TV who was receiving Medicaid and railing against health care reform, or as she put it, Big Government taking over and telling her what to do.


I like your whinny punctuation.
