Tea Party

Since I go to a Chinese restaurant for lunch almost every weekday, and am white, over 45, more educated than average, earning more than average (but let’s not get carried away), I am a natural candidate for the Tea Party according to my reading of the latest survey data. So, I started thinking about the sort of lean and mean government that our Constitution had in mind before the socialists began to mess with it with their funny ideas from the French Revolution. Get rid of all services feeding off the public teat and allow the American people to do the jobs themselves reserving our substantially-decreased tax dollars for:

. US Air Force and any helicopter (they’re cool)
. Lenox, MA police department (Tanglewood traffic is miserable)
. #7 train to Citifield (easiest way to get there)
. Law Department of Supreme Court of New York County (for the even-handed administration of justice)


  1. Please do not do anything to encourage the idiots - even in jest.

  2. Interestingly, this "lean and mean" government is exactly NOT what our founding fathers had in mind. They went into debt almost immediately, spending tons of money on almost anything they could think of. Alexander Hamilton (our Secretary of the Treasury) saw debt as a way to strengthen the federal government at the expense of the states. I really wish this tea party folk would actually try reading about our founding fathers.
