    The "examples" are not simplified representations of Tea Party concepts; they are the level at which Tea Party advocates actually think.

    God I hope so. Take a drink, put your sneakers under the bunk bed and wait for the mother ship to take you home to Jesus.

    Disgusting, disturbing and unnerving; it horrifies me that these people and their agenda are taken so seriously and have been able to determine the contours and content of so much of political and cultural debate in the US.

    Once upon a time, the US gave us fine writers and thinkers of the calibre of Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson; and now - the mind boggles - we have the deranged philosophy of the Tea Party and their fellow travellers. Gosh.

    Cheers

    Can't we just teach kids basic logic and reasoning, and then let kids figure things out for themselves?

    If we did that, they'd all grow up to be atheists!

    Hmm, am I'm not surprised conservative Christians are involved. Indoctrination for the kids. When it comes to the "home of the free and brave", freedom must not include how you think.

    So on the third day, when they add 50% more children each doing the same amount of "labor" (as I assume they must for the sake of thoroughness and honesty), what do they do with the candle supply?

    They will simply go off the Candy Standard, and have no need to store candies at Fort Knox.

    Then paper money will have no intrinsic value, but will be a measure of minion labour.

    I'm not quite as disgusted as some here.

    Why shouldn't Tea Baggers try to influence future generations to adopt their vision and carry on their cause?

    Who doesn't?

    I frankly, would expect nothing less.

    Fostering ignorance should never be applauded nor promoted.

    The problem is when Obama gives a 100% nonpartisan, nonpolitical message to students encouraging them to do well in school, the right wing called it indoctrination compared it to the Hitler Youth.

    If anyone's indoctrinating kids here, it's the tea party.

    This is really sick s***

    It reminds me a lot of the now popular Rep. Bachmann.

    Forget the tea party movement, what this country needs is another revolution and a new government system.

    Yes. Why bother fixing the framework we've got now? Let's throw out the baby with the bathwater. :rolleyes:

    But by doing so you, hopefully, cut the tendrils of Corporate America from D.C.
