Re: “Bachmann: Tea Party represents 90% of Americans

The success of Bachman in SC is proof that our education system doesn't teach critical thnking.

Re: “Bachmann: Tea Party represents 90% of Americans

Bachman and the Tea Party didn't take the deficit seriously -- said it didn't matter.

We are paying for that ignorance now by a catastrophic collapse of the stock market. Pin the blame for the stock market dive right where it belongs -- on ignorant politicians and the Republican/Tea Party telling us that the country is in bad shape. If you say the country is in bad shape often enough people will believe you and the stock market will believe you.

The Know-Nothings are back. They are called Tea Partiers.

Re: “Bless Their Hearts: Donuts for tax reform

The "Fair tax" is not fair at all -- not when you look at the specifics. The last version that went around had a 29% tax on every haircut, every doctor's visit, all school supplies. (That means that when the price tag says $1, you pay $1.29.)

When you look at the details, the "Fair Tax" is very, very unfair to those of us in the middle class -- the people who actually spend money.

Re: “Rick Perry announces run for presidency, mildly

Rick Perry thinks that Social Security and Medicare are unconstitutional.

That's not conservative. There is nothing conservative about yanking social security and medicare away from senior citizens who have had money for these programs deducted from our pay checks all our working life. We've paid our "premiums" into these policies.

I think Perry is not too smart.

Re: “Bleeding heart dreamland gets a mouth full of tea bags

It takes a bunch of off-the-wall know-nothings to almost destroy the good faith and credit of the U.S. Government by deciding not to pay our debts. Do members of the Tea Party take the same attitude toward the debts they've run up on their own credit cards?
