We don't need no steenking science

Anyone recall from a few months ago, prior to the ARRA 2009 passage, all of the right-wing grumbling about over-the-top spending?

Lots and lots of GOP talking heads griping about flu research and preparedness and cyber-security as "pork."

Here's what happens, GOP f*cknuts, when you can't see beyond your own interests. Oh, and this, too.

Don't go complaining to the government when you or a loved one gets sick. Or when China or North Korea rolls out some new radar-evading F-35s: It's "pork" and the pig may come home to root.

No doubt the right-wing media will turn it around and somehow blame it on the Democrats.

I think 900 million dollars is worth protecting American's health in the Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Initiative (altho' the GOP Senators did do their darndest to slash that funding).

Yeah, GOP f*cknuts. Only poor, lazy, yet elitist liberals get the flu.

Science, scientists, and research are so stupid [note sarcasm].

But Skye--Didnt you know that Science is an afront--a form of Witchcraft, it rebels against God's order. And that Swine Flu with the *hinky DNA--heck that's just God and the Birth Pangs of the Trials and Tribulations.

How can the Prophecy Come true, if we don't all do our part to bring it about?

That's right, that's right, seeing eye.

How could I have been so stupid? Oh, yeah, it's because I am a godless liberal :).

All the things we people need to be thankful for because of science.

Safe food
Safe Water
And so on. These end-of-days people need to get on with their demise and leave the rest of us out of their religious deathgasms.

The pigs are coming home to roost, as they say (or do they?).

Unfortunately, there is no way to correlate non-funding of science that may save us from pandemics and the occurrence of pandemics in the brains of the opposition. If I get the swine flu, I am going to ask why those damn republicans wanted to slash funding for research that may have prevented it. If they get the swine flu, they are going to ask God why they are being punished for the sins of people like me.

I was unsure about pigs "nesting" habits, so I thought root might work. Do they root through their slop?

I dunno--- tough metaphor to tackle.

Layers and layers to this story. The conspiracy machine has already started:

Newspeople are pretty nervous it seems. I am not going to go stock up on supplies just yet.

But I do think the stim bill was a good thing. I read through your past posts about it. good stuff

LOL!!! You crack me and and that was very funny Seeing Eye.

I am sure that somewhere wingnut is telling hus kids that this is the end of the world as we know it.

Bye the way Pashamin, that was really funny too-- deathgasms!!

OMG I *love* you people. I get something good out of every visit here. Usually a laugh, at the very least a smile. Thank you skyewriter for this virtual space.

I'm with catherinemacivor (Catherine?): deathgasms is hilarious Pashamin.

I have faith that Jesus'll heal me and all the other good Republicans when we get the swine flu. Why should our tax money go toward vaccines for you heathens?

[Note: if we do get the swine flu and die it's because Jesus can't wait to bring us to heaven, while you heathens are stuck down here with all the global warming (which isn't really happening), taxes, gay marriages, and abortions]

Yes, well thinking that spending is the root of all evil is the Republican way.

I had only recently heard about the flu outbreak in Mexico. Thanks for the links. Great job, as always. Which reminds me. There's a little something for you on my blog.

Add I just have to add, the word verification for today is mincelog. Is that a log made of mincemeat pie? Not sure I want to know.

I had someone tell me that the Swine Flu was the Birth Pangs yesterday in a store.


I told them, that Revelations Isn't Cake Baking Instructionis.

The sad part is, the person is very nice, so it was a shock to me, to get that sort of response.

Thank you all for the thoughtful and funny comments.

I'm with the others: deathgasms wins for new word of the day.

I wonder if that applies to people who are into erato-asphyxiation? (I have no clue how to spell it and have only heard about it on Cold Case Files, I swear.) But that's another post entirely.
