I turned on the radio this morning to hear: "They're not crazy. They're ilI-informed and stupid."
The speaker was referring to Tea Party Poopers blocking Obama's attempt to break the deficit deadlock. I have other names for people willing to let the U.S. go belly up, rather than ruffle the feathers of the billionaires who pay for their election campaigns.
What do you call Maoists who could answer any question with a saying from Mao's "little red book?"
What do you call the 900 in Jim Jones's People's Temple, who murdered Rep. Leo Ryan, (D) California, the only U.S. Congressman killed in the line of duty (more about him in days to come), and who fed their infants cyanide before drinking it themselves?
What do you call the Heaven's Gate cult who worshiped UFO's and were sure that a space ship captained by Jesus, was lurking behind the Hale-Bopp comet ready to gather them in after they committed suicide?
You call them Ideologues.
We all need and most of us have a theory to explain the mysteries of life. But take one idea and it substitute for all ideas, and viola!, Ideology.
No more thinking. no more fretting, one answer for everything.
It's a Siren call hard to resist
