Tea Party Shorts

A hysterical picture taken at a tea bagging party protest yesterday.


The Texas Governor talks about seceding from the Union. Because... you know... Texas wouldn't have any trouble maintaining it's border with Mexico without federal help. And they'd be just fine the next time a hurricane hit their coast.

Or maybe seceding is just Texas's knee jerk reaction to a man from Illinois who's sympathetic to the plight of blacks in this country being elected President. It worked out real well for you last time.

But maybe there's something to it. Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting for a decade that the US will breakup by 2010. (Wall Street Journal, Boing Boing) By this time next year I could be living in China.


But seriously folks, let's remember that the first Tea Party was in response to taxation without representation. If I remember correctly, the stimulus package passed both houses of Congress before Obama signed it. I'm guessing more than a few Congressmen from Texas voted for it.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
