Bigot of the Week Award: April 8

8 Apr

Bigot of the Week

I’m consistently saddened by the plethora of fools to chose from each week for BWA.  I was tempted to give a collective BWA to the Tea Party for the potential government shut down which has nothing to do with the budget and everything to do with protecting wealthy white folks. So when I learned that Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) was again listening to the strange voices in his head, I knew he would earn this week’s BWA.  Yes, audience. Ryan is taking his lead from, the model of bigotry and homophobia, the Heritage Foundation to come up with budget proposals. I have to ask, what kind of Kool Aid are y’all serving up there in Wisconsin? When questioned about his budget proposals including the his solution for Medicare, Ryan’s office did not respond to repeated requests for comment about the CBO analysis. But the congressman has repeatedly said that applying what he calls “free-market principles” to the insurance market is the best way to control costs.  Click here for more information on the ball of crazy known as Paul Ryan.

    This is what happens when we listen to or let the Tea Party govern. I wish we can walk away from this budget crisis having learned a thing or two, but I fear those who are actually cheering for a shutdown simply have no earthly idea what the repercussions would be. To think an ideological battle over something like Planned Parenthood may lead to a government shutdown is beyond me. It blows my mind.

    Also, here’s an interesting article on the free market that I read today:

      Cory, than you for adding the link to the HUff article. Well, we all know how dangerous Planned Parenthood and NPR are. Women’s Health and Education are nothing but the Devil’s playground. 🙂

        Cancer screenings? Saved lives? Blasphemy! 😉

        Finally you are talking sense, Cory. 🙂 Lest we forget the prevention of STDs and the prevention of unwanted pregnancies.
