  •  Bringing back feudalism (4+ / 0-)

    I'm not the only one who's mentioned this (a good friend and I were just talking about it), but what these folks want is the return of feudalism.  It's not just about economics, it's also about power.  They want to remove any and all barriers to concentrated wealth and political power thereby creating new "lords" and the rest of us will have the "freedom" to serve them or starve.

    The teabagger shock troops think that if they're loyal enough, they'll get to be the bailiff or the reeve.  But they'll be cast aside once they're no longer useful.

    Procrastination: Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.

    •  Bloody hell, now I have to give up the SCA? (4+ / 0-)

      I gave up on Revolutionary War re-enactment because of the teabaggers.
      I gave up on Civil War re-enactment because of Governor McDumbbell and his "Confederate History".
      Now I should give up on anything prior to 1600 because that's what the Regressives want to drag us back to?

      C'mon, there's a limit to this nonsense - there's gotta be!

      If it's
      Not your body
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      AND it's
      None of your damn business!
