I approve of the “Tea Party” protests. I believe that taxation is theft, and that the only difference between a mugger and a Revenue Canada bureaucrat is that the mugger needs enough sisu to risk s/h/its life and/or freedom while the bureaucrat can hide cringingly behind the shield of other government thugs with guns. I’m rather exasperated with the Republicans (most of ’em) who have, like the prodigal son, only returned to their fold after fucking the dog long and hard enough to get their lesions infected, but like the Biblical dad* I’m pleased to see someone returning to the small-government community.
Nonetheless, I giggle like a schoolgirl every time I come across the epithet “tea-bagger“. How can you not? It’s fucking funny.
* Sort of — I’m most emphatically not a Republican, and won’t be until they can cure themselves of their irrational hatred of gays, atheists, and immigrants. Still, there are enough parallels for the analogy to hold.
