    Red face Why Teabaggers are complete and utter retards - a scathing dissection

    Let us pause to consider Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, and his feelings about seceding from the union.

    This all started during the recent anti-tax protests. You undoubtedly saw the pictures of the demonstrations full of people wearing teabags or tricorner hats who kept comparing themselves to the founding fathers at the Boston Tea Party. True, when it comes to taxation without representation, they were slightly different from colonial New Englanders on the minor point of having representation. But let’s not be picky.

    Have you ever noticed that the states where anti-tax sentiment is strongest are frequently the same states that get way more back from the federal government than they send in? Alaska gets $1.84 for every tax dollar it sends to Washington, which is a rate of return even Bernard Madoff never pretended to achieve. Yet there they were in Ketchikan waving “Taxed Enough Already!” signs and demanding an end to federal spending.

    Also, have you noticed how places that pride themselves on being superpatriotic seem to have the most people who want to abandon the country entirely and set up shop on their own?

    “What a great crowd,” Perry twittered, referring to the protesters he addressed in Austin, some of whom were waving American flags and yelling “Secede!”

    Afterward, he told reporters that Texas had come into the union with a unique right “to leave if we decided to do that.” This is a beloved piece of state folklore despite its unfortunate drawback of being totally untrue.

    “My hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention,” Perry continued. “We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, who knows what may come of that.”

    Later, while Perry was holding another press conference after signing a bill extolling states rights, he repeated the part about this being “a great union” but then said that he understood the secessionists’ feelings.

    This is not exactly a ringing endorsement. It’s as if your spouse pointedly noted that it’s extremely easy to dissolve marriages these days, then added that although he was not currently advocating a divorce, he certainly understood why other people who knew you both might think it was a good idea.

    And what about my country, right or wrong? Weren’t there complaints, some from Texan quarters, during the last election that Barack Obama seemed insufficiently up front about his love of country? Isn’t threatening to dissolve the union over the stimulus package a little less American than failure to wear a flag pin?

    Remember the time when Michelle Obama said, in a moment she spent an entire campaign trying to take back, that 2008 was the first time she could remember ever feeling really proud of her country? Can you imagine how the conservative base would have reacted if she said that it was the first time she didn’t feel like renouncing her citizenship?

    And how, by the way, can you stand at a rally waving the American flag while yelling “Secede”? It’s like an employer handing out “worker of the week” certificates to employees who just learned that he was moving the plant to Mexico.

    Can’t feel the love.

    Perry, who is the sort of person who calls other guys “dude,” used to be a cotton farmer, a group that seems to have a special talent for combining rugged individualism with intransigent demands for government assistance. Even as we speak, the Obama administration budget-cutters are trying to end a longstanding federal practice of paying the costs of storing the entire national cotton crop every year. No other farmers get this kind of special treatment, and I am sure Perry’s failure to mention it when he calls for an end to corporate bailouts is a terrible oversight that will be corrected immediately.

    The big mystery here is why the tax-protest crowds were behaving as if the world was coming to an end when all Obama’s infant presidency has done is lower taxes for a vast majority of the public. And why people like Perry seem to feel compelled to egg them on.

    The answer is that what’s left of the Republican Party is intent on cutting off the knees of the administration before it actually manages to fulfill any campaign promises on reducing the huge economic gap between the top 5 percent of the country and the rest of the populace. In pursuit of that mission, fortune favors the hysterical and rewards politicians who behave like gerbils that just bit into an electric wire.

    We don’t want to blame all Texans for the high jinks in Austin. It’s a state full of lovely people, three-fourths of whom, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll, have no desire whatsoever to secede from the United States.

    But Perry really understands how that other quarter feels.

    Nefarious hidden operatives have created an appearance of revolution against a democratically elected and very popular leader many many times. I would really like to know who is feeding the ignorant masses this bullshit, getting them to rise against their own interests.

    If Texas Gov Rick Perry wants to break off from the US and become a part of Mexico, then good luck & good riddance. I know my friends currently living in Houston would not go along with him and relocate to another state : )

    Great article. It just brings more attention to the GOP's hypocrisy. They can bash Obama & Michelle for not being patriotic, but then turn around and threaten secession at the drop of a hat.

    A-MEN. Perry is an over-zealous douchenugget. I never realized it before, but he's kind of like our Palin. I read that he intends on running for re-election. I don't know who, other than his rabid, hysteric sheeple, would vote for him after this.

    There is an incredible amount of terrifying stupidity going on at those 'tea parties.'

    Some of those idiots were carrying signs that alternately called Obama; a Fascist, a Socialist and a Communist. What a talented man.
    I don't think those words mean what they think they mean. How could you go through life being that stupid, it scares me.

    This is also one of the funniest pics I've come across about the situation. Zero taxes, lmfao. These people can't be real.

    Who said, "No-one ever went broke overestimating the stupidity of the American people". BTW, it wasn't me.

    People don't know what the fuck they're protesting.. they're just using current political/social issues as an excuse to shove their idiotic groupthink assfoolery into our faces.

    The funny part is they think A) they are being persecuted as if they know the meaning, yeah let's compare this to the Holocaust that's not offensive, and B) that they are smart and "enlightened" (they just like the word they don't know the meaning).
