Apparently spelling is not in that repertoire either.
It's no shock to me that the Tea Party movement, however "pure" its origins, has become nothing more than meat puppetry for the Right Wing Money Making Machine.
You idiots deserve every lick of humiliation for your literal, ass-backwards, non-logical, mumbo-jumbo.
Hail Queen Palin! Queen of the Dipshits!

The GOP now can take responsibility (no worries; not holding my breath) for the expiration of flood insurance due to their own obstruction.
Please see the story here.
"According to the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America, there are 5.5 million flood insurance policy holders in flood plains, and as of this week, homeowners were rendered unable to renew their policies. If any of those homeowners were victims of the current flooding, they will “face complications” filing claims. As Blain Rethmeier, spokesman for the American Insurance Association, put it, “it’s unfortunate that the NFIP has fallen victim to the political process”:
Ultimately the people who will suffer the most are property owners who need new coverage or who need to renew their flood insurance policies. One can only hope that Mother Nature is kind until April 12. Otherwise, there’s not much people can do."
Yes, and I hear from friends on the EC that shit is indeed flooding the streets. Too bad, says the GOP.

... And I refuse to let shitheads like this and the *friends* they associate with online harass, bully, and otherwise insult me:
From April 15, 2009:
'The Welcome Mat Has Been Taken In"
To the unpleasant people who have parked on my blog's doorstep.
One of my favorite exchanges in a movie addresses the issue of saying what people want to hear.
"Do you see purple people?" the guy asks.
"No," answered the woman.
"I had a friend," the man began, "who said he saw purple people. They locked him up, but he got out."
"Yeah?" asked the woman. "Did they cure him?"
"Nope. He just stopped telling anyone about the purple people."
Yeah, I see the "purple people" but I rarely write about them.
They are bruised and scared by the changing times.
They just want someone, anyone, to listen to them.
They threaten because they feel that they have no real power.
They truly believe that they can offer nothing positive to helping their neighbors aside from "It's not my fault"-- a child's response.
Like all of you, I have been through my own set of unique challenges. One of the greatest has been to persevere in writing this blog. I had to start moderating comments a few months ago when a rather unstable mob of people descended on this webspace.
Then, I get abused and harassed here to my "face" and all over other websites by people who have spent exactly thirty seconds "reading" this blog.
All because I refuse to be bullied and I will not post comments in which people have written:
"You are a fucking retard. You commie shitheads don't know anything and if my guns get taken away, I am coming for you first"
"You think you know so much. You are a total fake. A liar. And you are the coward for not posting comments" (This one is from someone who had left me over twenty abusive comments over the course of 24 hours.)
~ Of course, here's my all time favorite~
"You are a fucking cunt and I hope someone figures out who you are and finds you and wipes you off the face of the earth"
I've been writing this blog for almost six months now.
This post marks 164 published in that time.
I've definitely covered a lot of ground and material. Most of it written believing that people are basically decent and at least have a whiff of social skills.
As a young professor, I have to believe that.
I have 15-20 people who read this little blog. Loyal and supportive blog friends that have stuck by me.
They prove to me that most people aren't like these purple ones.
So if you are here to tell me how stupid or fucked up or snobby or elitist I am you can take it somewhere else.
You were not invited here-- and you have long worn out your welcome.
One thing to take away from this commie-liberal-progressive blog: if you have safe drinking water, safe food, safe medication, clean air to breathe, medicare for elderly relatives, social security for those same folks, if you learned to read and write in a public school, enjoy having a local police station, a fire department, a federally run postal service to deliver your Mother's Day cards-- thank a liberal.
Despite your best attempts to shit all over them, you have a lot to be thankful for because of them.
Some things have changed. Some have not. I still have people who cannot read for comprehension trying to harass me via comments. If you do not condemn threats made against others, you may as well threaten others yourself. As I wrote in the comment thread on my last post, Delaware, back off. I am having conversations with a lawyer-relative (and another who is in law enforcement) about your harassing behavior... including *months* of comments, dates, IP addresses, etc. Back. the fuck. off.
