And the Teabaggers Declared Victory, Went Home, and Lived Happily Ever After

“Federal, state and local taxes — including income, property, sales and other taxes — consumed 9.2% of all personal income in 2009, the lowest rate since 1950, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reports. That rate is far below the historic average of 12% for the last half-century.” [USA Today]


The real problem is spending,counters Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks, which organizes Tea Party groups. “The money we borrow is going to be paid back through taxation in the future,” he says.

Sounds an awful lot like a general from the Dick Armey just endorsed higher taxes. Teabagger revolt in 3, 2, 1…

Inconvenient facts will be ignored. Its what they call cognitive dissonance.


But what does one do when the lumpenletoilets or whatever of one’s nation are too stupid to experience cognitive dissonance or to achieve class consciousness? (Or any other -ousness, for that matter.)
