Since it's a slow weekend for domestic news, I ran across an unusual story to share. It's not at all newsworthy, but it left me scratching my head at wonder that anyone could actually believe this garbage.

LOL When republicans get desperate, they get extra stupid. Then they get busted.

Ty Tom. Studied this nonsense in sociology extensively way back in the early 70's and still don't have a conclusive clue. Is it lack or overuse of imagination? ...neurological defects/deficiencies or cerebral deficits. . .? ...nurture or nature? It certainly is a willingness to believe complete and total BS no matter what. I do think it's exponential peer pressure that gives it life. For decades i've talked to "reich wingers*" [picked up this very fitting term from a fellow Care2er...like to give credit where due] about public policy and while doing so--have convinced the vast majority [in the 1000's now] by presenting facts from actual raw data, studies, historical references, etc showing that most "reich wing" republican policies and positions are inaccurate and don't work. Except for a rare few--all still go vote Republican. While campaigning for the Affordable Care Act. . .a university professor fellow campainger made a comment to this effect. . .that people agree with him but go vote Republican anyway. I said YES that IS my experience too! Why is that?! He said they just can't bring themselves to go against those who told them the stupidness in the first place! And that is it in a nutshell...loyal nonsensical peer pressure! Then they play a never ending telephone game...losing track of the original stories so it gets real crazy. It's all very, very sad.

Unfortunately, there are people who believe in this "teabuggery"...

Yes, I would be scratching my head too.

Ty, Tom.

These people are acting like cretins. Do they TRULY believe their own idiotic comments? If so then they ought to be embarrassed. But I guess these types do not have any shame.

“Some are born mad. Some remain so.”
Samuel Beckett Quotes

It is indeed mind boggling to all who value facts, evidence, data, unbiased research and other reputable and credible grounds for decision-making.

Tom you not live in Fox/Teaparty land, the land of all things are true, like Romney did not lose, the rich care about the poor not money, Obama was born on Mars. Just feel sorry for them.

WOW - this is just NUTS...but not surprising. The recent loss to Obama has rendered the whole right wing party INSANE!

It is unfortunate that people will choose to believe Ms. West as idiotic as her comments are. That's some picture TomCat!!

A favorite saying of an old friend of mine went: "If you want brains, you go to a butcher." I would add that you not only go to a butcher, but that you stay far away from the Teabaggers.

On the other hand, perhaps what we have here is the first evidence, and it's been staring us in the face for some years now, that there actually is at least one parallel universe, with different rules of physics, and, of course, LOGIC; but, contrary to theory, we CAN have contact with such a thing: they are here!

Thanks Tom for the post. This would be hilarious if these people didn't actually believe what they are saying. Read and noted.

Reich-wingers are freaking insane & Nobody is institutionalizing them - which makes them "emboldened" & FAUX News gives them free air tme to spread the virus! Educated RepubliCONs used to keep the cretins in the closet, now they parade them out like pet monkeys..:(

Just when you think the right has hit bottom you find out they're going for the absolute zero of intelligence.

Can you say "intentional ignorance" it is the 'suspension of disbelief', coined by Samuel Taylor Coleridge to describe the process that makes entertainment entertaining, as in suspends their belief/knowledge that what is presented is not possible or feasible, without it no one would watch or read sci-fi, action, romance or comedy and most religions would not exist I might add. The problem is that members of the Repug-Tea Bagged-Christian Taliban of America Alliance have "suspension of disbelief" as the core of their world view and the filter through which they judge everything. They have absolute faith in anything and everything that promotes or reinforces their ideological agenda. The real problem arises from the fact that they do the inverse with anything and everything that contradicts their world view. Consider their anti-education anti-science ideology, does 'science is from the pits of Hell' sound familiar or 'climate change can not happen because God will not allow it' or the math of the Romney/Ryan budget and tax scam, or Tax Cuts pay for themselves or Piss down economics. These people do not live in an alternate universe they simply do not see reality that does not fit their desired world view. There are two words that come to mind, sociopath and psychopath taken to a group level and you get the Repug/Tea Bagged/Christian Taliban of America.

You have to love when they Teabugger themselves!

Does anyone else see the humour in this message like I do?

You know Terrie, I have to disagree with you. I deal with dementia daily, (my mother's, and no, not my own!) and quite frankly many of the dementia patients I know make more sense than these idiot baggers!

Thanks TC. I needed a laugh today — I've been dealing with mother who now has the Norwalk Virus as do a lot more in the building. On top of that, probably because of weakness, she feel again today but didn't hurt herself. She, and the others, keep coming out of their rooms so staff are running like chickens before the fox trying to get them back to their rooms.

Forgot to add, that poor cat in the picture! He should strike for better working conditions!

Oh that poor cat!! I found myself recommending to him exactly where to bite that dog! Mind you I think Kenneth's idea is better!

Oh dear Heaven that there are people in the world that actually believe that American soldiers serving in Afghanistan are being indoctrinated like that!!!! Oh dear Lord - stupid really IS forever, isn't it? And so is evil come to that!

Commiserations Lynn - what a very difficult situation you and the staff face - lots of prayers going up for you all.

Even "Educated people " often have limited abilities towards creating thoughts of their own.

If you only point to the moon, they'll only look at your finger.

Interesting...yet so hypocritical that "conservative columnist Diana West in October claimed that the Benghazi attack was a 'fortunate event' because it brought attention to the Obama administration’s “supporting jihad.”

I think it's time the conservatives made up their minds! Are they outraged that four people died as a result of these attacks? Or are they overjoyed that they were able to create yet another false charge to hold against the President?
