These people are insidious, like roaches. They come out at night, spread their nastiness, then can’t stand the light of day. They worship Ayn Rand. They are strange little creatures who are becoming a bit silly. All a bunch of little twits need is to call themselves a tea party group, link up with others of their ilk, and voila. They are narcissistic and arrogant enough to think they can truly force everyone in the world to change.
There are so many of these twits that they are starting to show their liberal tendencies. They want to get involved in every area of our lives. This is NOT about less government. This is about people who will never amount to more than a hill of beans trying to take control of the country.
Remember the Muppets and Pigs in Space? Well, that was my first thought when I heard there was a tea party group out to kill our space program.
“…On Thursday, TEA Party in Space (TPIS) unveiled its “TEA Party Space Platform.”
The group, which is affiliated with the Tea Party Patriots, hopes NASA will return “to its roots as [a research and development] agency instead of serving as a slush fund for a few influential members of Congress,” TPIS President Andrew Gasser said in a Thursday press release.
Just like a political party’s platform, this agenda is made up of specific issues. Among the fourteen calls to action is for Congress to pass legislation to cap liability for commercial human spaceflight.
Another of the tenets calls for a “Zero-G means Zero-Tax” arrangement, which would establish tax exemptions for business activities related to human spaceflight.
Additionally, the group wants for Congress to allow NASA to cancel all existing Shuttle, Ares and Space Launch System contracts in order to force the termination of an $11 billion earmark included in the 2010 NASA Authorization Law and for NASA to “competitively bid the development of human exploration transportation capabilities.”…”
It makes you wonder who these people are and who is promoting them. Something’s getting a little weird out there. Issac Mooers, who is “Director of Operations” is a Ron Paul Bot.
The Pink Flamingo has been all about the private sector in space since the Reagan Administration. Unfortunately what this hand full of arrogant little jerks doesn’t understand is that their ill-advised platform is a joke. They want all shuttle missions canceled – there is one remaining mission.
They don’t know what they are doing.
I thought the tea parties wanted to get rid of the DOE. Unfortunately, what they are advocating is, currently, nothing more than science fiction fantasy. I wish it were not, but these people are out of their league. One wonders what is going on here.
It makes me wonder who is fronting this.
Also – there are only about 80 “likes” on facebook. This says more than anything else. The Pink Flamingo has been telling you that there is very little real interest in the tea parties.
