Those Chilean miners would be dead if they were in the … Tea Party?

Yes, another Mattews post. But this is just too great to pass up. Matthews goes on one of those very special rants as he explains why the government is good. His guest … AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, of course, concurs.

Set aside we do not want to eliminate government … try and follow the logic.

    Mattews is the epitome of the reductio ad absurdum argument: the Tea Party doesn't want any government.  That is actually the position of the anarchists that are part of the left, not Tea party members.  The Tea Party wants government to do the jobs that are charged to it by the Constitution.   How radical!!


    Safety in cars?  How much safer are cars and how many of the innovations were actually the result of government and not the demands of the people themselves?   Did the government create the auto industry, or any industry other than skimming off the profits of businesses and individuals?


    As for the "good" government is purported to do by Trumka and Matthews, how about that crumbling infrastructure?  Where did all those highway and gas taxes go (general fund)?  Where did all the Social Security money go (general fund)?  Why is Medicare bankrupt?   Why is it that we have hundreds and thousands of pages of tax law that nobody completely understands (by design)?  Who actually wrote the Øbamacare bill?


    You get the point.  Government is inefficient and run by people that have no experience in the businesses that they are trying to micromanage, our president in particular.


    It is the foundation for an epic fail.

    Trumka says "…you need a good, efficient government."?  Neither of these buffoons deal in reality- they're overpaid, fat, dumb and lazy!  There ought to be a reality show called "Take Your Celebrity to Work"!   None of these a$$holes would do the jobs I've done and then merrily hand over 40% of their paycheck when there are so damned many non-working sponges in this country! My life would be so much better if I could simply amass some savings rather than pay to perpetuate the bad behaviors of other people; and I'd rather enrich myself, but I'm shoveling shit against the tide in this state.

    Jim I think your headline is correct, if they were Teaparty members Obama would take about 6 months to appoint a czar in charge of a commission to figure out what to do but the EPA wouldn't allow any efforts till the regualations were in place.

    That creep tries to turn every story into a smear against the Tea Party or the GOP. I wonder if he can be stuffed into the rescue capsule and sent into the mine.
