"A little starvation will do us good." Please come CAPTION this rethug:

?

Rep. Stephen Fincher (R., Tennessee) is saying: "Look! A little starvation can be a good thing. . . . The example of a couple well-placed piles of corpses on the outskirts of cities will make a many of our fellow citizens consider taking menial jobs, and so we won't need so many immigrants to pick our crops. . . . More people will volunteer as subjects for human experiments and this will be a benefit to science. . . . We can change food kitchens into local clinics and thus make the the survivors healthier. And it will probably shorten the lines at K-Mart and Goodwill. . . . It's 'Win, Win' as they say."

8. s.o.b.

"The reason this is even more egregious than the usual Republican class warfare is that Fincher himself is a poster boy for government dependency. It's not just that he's benefited here and there from some government help. That sort of low-level hypocrisy is almost to be expected from these types. But Fincher has received millions - $3.2 million as of June 2010 - in federal crop subsidies. The people who refer to themselves as Tea Partiers threatened to derail his candidacy over this, but then they realized that they have no principles, and supported him anyway. He's now a member of the "Tea Party Caucus," which, amazingly, is something that actually exists. Fincher's brother and father also snatched another $6.7 million in subsidies as Stephen geared up to run for Congress on a platform of eliminating "wasteful government spending." The "wasteful spending" that he had in mind, of course, was that which serves policy aims with which he disagrees, such as keeping poor people alive. "

13. "And think of all the land we could use that wouldn't be wasted on raising crops

for those who don't work! . . . We could have more upscale malls and more shooting ranges and bowling alleys, hair salons and mega-churches!!!"

14. "And some reasons for those on the other side of the aisle: Are you worried about global warming?

Well, each person contributes so much CO2 directly or indirectly (like in the products they by and habitat destruction they occasion) that by reducing this source by, say, a modest 15%, we could help slow down or even reverse the trend, possibly saving the planet!!! . . . And what about the freed-up lands that could be used for wind-farms or whatever hippie-dippy dreams they got. . . . For my Democratic friends, then, I say, "Go green!!! Up with starvation!!!"
