Ok, this isn’t entirely fair picking on the Tea Party people because cognitively they aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed but I saw this on the Book of Faces yesterday and I can’t resist posting what I assume someone actually thinks is a coherent thought…
Occult religions are roll-your-own religions and typically they combine a lot of different aspects of other religions. People should not spend too much time and effort trying to label Obama one thing, because he is a combination of a lot of different things, Muslim, Black Nazi, pseudo-Christian, Marxist/Communist . Ultimately, it is about self-worship. He believes he is a higher being with a divine mission to transform the world in his own image.
Ohh…I also bet he’s also vegetarian and puts empty milk containers back into the fridge!
And speaking of fridges…How about this link to a Daily Mail story. Did you know Michelle Obama was on a secret mission to starve our children to death?
We’re hungry! Students revolt over Michelle Obama’s 850-calorie school meals with online video as First Lady faces growing anger
That’s right…Michelle Obama only wants to give growing children 850 calories…for lunch. I suppose most families, living in free market utopias, refuse to feed their children breakfast or dinner as they are afraid it’ll make kids dependent on handouts.
This is a great story that really could only run in places outside the U.S. or in places where people have never actually seen American kids. Apparently our biggest problem is a glut of student athletes who “can burn through as many as 5,000 calories a day – but they are still entitled to no more than 850 calories for their lunch.”
Been to Wal-Mart lately? Oh, yeah. We’re awash in school age kids with Adonis like physiques.
And of course, this misses the bigger (excuse that) point. These are people who hate government intervention complaining about…interference in their government run school lunch program.
Indeed…Get the gubmint out of my government run school lunch program!
Yes, and social security and Medicare are paragons of free market capitalism.
Shouldn’t the argument be…’Stop all subsidized lunches!’ Leave it up to parents to decide how much (or if) their kids should eat lunch 1. That’s at least a position consistent with the modern conservative movement.
If it hasn’t already, the Right is in danger of becoming a parody of itself. Oh, who are we kidding…it became that a long time ago.
- Of course, parents can still provide or supplement their kids’ lunches if they want so this whole thing is a bullshit issue…in other words, just what you’ve come to expect from these types of arguments. ↩
