It only makes sense if you are stupid

It only makes sense if you are stupid
by MinistryOfTruth


Spanish people are lazy AND stealing all the jobs. At the same time. Lazy, but also taking all the jobs because they work so much AND because they are lazy. Are you following me?

If we give all the money to the rich and don't tax them at all, eventually it will trickle down and the rich will give us back some of the money we gave them before. Totally.

...............

Guns don't kill people, video games featuring guns kill people.

Taxing and spending are bad. Anyone who disagrees is a commie. Except Military Spending.


...............

The problem with being a party for ignorant paranoid white people who are addicted to magical thinking and reject facts, science and even common sense is that at some point all you are left with are ignorant paranoid white people who are addicted to magical thinking and reject facts, science and even common sense.

2. Except corporate welfare, and thousands of other types of gov't spending that benefit the rich.

If the hidden subsidies built into the tax code were exposed as actual government spending, there would be a revolt from teabaggers united with centrists and lefty progs.

Tax giveaways are a form of subsidy and there are many good reasons for many of them, but they really are a form of spending because it is income that the government(s) forego, that they choose not to collect. Other taxes are higher because of the tax breaks.

The greatest tax simplification would be to turn tax breaks into budget line item subsidies.

But the pretend-stupid party (GOP) that pretends to cater to the stupids while really shafting them will never agree to such a common sense approach.

Great Original Post. Thanks!

If you haven't watched this movie do it. It seems to show up on the Comedy Channel all the time. This is our future if the right wingers get their way.

6. Add this: They bring the rest of us down

with them. It would be fine to think that way (can't control people's thoughts) if it didn't lead to policy. It's okay to be dead wrong if it doesn't impact so profoundly the people who have to share this country with you.

.... "only if you're stupid.." I think it should be "It only makes sense if you are evil, insane or both." If you're both, you're a sociopath. If you are ignorant and don't have the ability to reason, you are insane. And it's just downright evil for politician's to lie and take advantage of their electorate. Republican politicians should be doing everything they can to get those people educated, and to make sure they get the mental health services that they so desperately need.

14. I think most of them were dropped on their heads by a hippy when they were babies.

And they've held a grudge ever since, and will not let logic get in the way of their pursuit to destroy every progressive ideal. So let that be a lesson, stop dropping babies on their heads!

I really have never seen any logic in their thinking, and worst of all, as bad as their politicians are, the people who vote for them are ten times worse. They are like the anti-party, everything they represent goes against the grain of any sane political thought.

Let's see, they campaign for 1) lower minimum wage, 2) lower taxes on the rich, higher on the rest of us, 3) less environmental protection, 4) continued dependency on oil, 5) less rights for anyone in a minority... I mean the list goes on and on. It would be unbelievable to me if they continue to exist without a major change in their attitude.

23. "Gubbermint Is The Problem..."

That's the game today's rushpublicans are playing...make governing and the government so dysfunctional that they'll fulfill the Raygan mantra. Of course the great unhinged love the thought..."hey no taxes"...but they're the first to piss and moan when the government tries to close a military base in their area. Yep...the problem is obvious...unless you live in a bubble.

Just Kiddin. Thanks for posting. I would say I look forward to your posts but that is getting a little maudlin.
