Subject: RE: BS: The Tea Party- New & Improved Thread...
When the old third realizes the trick that the other 2/3s are playing on them. The poop will hit the blower.

The Dems, and the rational Republicans (a dying breed) have always realized that old farts are more careful to remember to vote than middle aged farts, and MAFs are more careful to do so than young farts, and have acted accordingly. The Tea Party people and the new crazy Republicans don't get it. Maybe after the next election they will.

Come the Revolution, I'm still shooting at both sides.

With the Tea Party in the picture, I may be shooting at all three.

Things will not get better as long as there are no term limits in Congress, so Congresspeople and Senators consider it a career, rather than something you do as a service, and then go away and stick someone else with it. And as long as the stupid American public votes for the candidate whose name they're most familiar with, rather than insisting on finding out the candidates' real position on the issues. The Congresspeople will always vote to please the people who will give them the most money, because they know they're guaranteed reelection as long as they can buy more advertising than the other guy.

We get what we deserve.
