    risked their lives to rescue Weathers. They had to haul him like a sack of rocks down the mountain, which was no easy task.

    If they had followed conservative, rather than liberal philosophy, they would have let the "market" take care of him, I guess. That was the attitude taked by a group of Japanese climbers on the mountain that day, as I recall from Krakauer's book.

    It's beyond irony that the Teapartiers, who have no concern for their fellow citizens, want to make a hero out of a man who needed his fellow climbers to save his sorry ass from his own stupidity.

      this SOB is perfect.

      Their ideals run to Olympia Snow and her husband. The aim is to make millions off the government -- cuz the little people ought to take care of sure exalted Republican personages.

      In 1996 up on Everest, Beck Weathers took from others every chance he got.

      Randian perfection.

      He never gave back a damn thing. Never sacrificed so much as a sock for anybody else. And he bitched about the service.

      Richfatbastards/Murdochs/Roves who engineer the Tea Party gotta love him. He's them.

      Angry White Males + Crooks + Personality Disorder psychos + KKKwannabes + "Unborn Child" church folk =EQ= The Republicans
