Listening to an Irish politician rant against the Tea Party when Irish politicians chained the entire country to what amounts to oars in a slave galley is pretty near the heights of irony. Following that up with comments by a bunch of people who probably don't make enough money to be paying their fair share of taxes puts it over the top.
Since it's on Facebook, I'm not big on replying. I don't like getting into politics over there, but I'm wondering if I should offer to introduce them to some of the Tea Party folks mentioned above. Then they could engage in a constructive, knowledgeable conversation with real, live humans and do more than just hurl epithets at straw men.
Here we see Tea Party type DDE whipping up fear. Or maybe meringue. Or maybe it's fearfully good meringue. Or meringue you should be afraid of. It all confuses me, to tell you the truth. After listening to Mike Higgins rail about the need to spend, spend, spend it's clear I'm not the only confused person out there.
