Neil Gaiman - pencil-necked weasel-thief
« on: May 05, 2011, 12:29:58 PM »

Makes you wonder if there really should be an IQ test for politicians. Nicely handled by Mr Gaiman.

Minnesota also produced Michelle Bachmann, so this is no surprise.

As I mentioned when Mr. G posted this to FB....

It seems odd to me that a Republican is bitching about a program that pays a pile of money
to an already-rich white guy for doing something that he could just as easily have done for free... 

I mean, helping rich white guys rake in the taxpayers' money, that's what the GOP is all about, innit?

i think we have stumbled onto a far more disturbing and worrisome topic here.....the fact that kids are routinely LIED TO in primary/junior school is deeply troublesome.....our whole framework of reality may be stripped away

Never again.
