The Kiddie Pool where Shallow Conservatives Bloviate About Tyranny

More little ducks farting underwater, proud of their little bubbles but then shocked when they surface and pop.


Let's get right to the point regarding conservatives and their "deep" opinions on tyranny.


Tyranny = Social spending -using their taxes to feed people is “stealing”.  


Tyranny = Minimum wage laws.


Tyranny = Every piece of legislation ever proposed to improve working conditions, including the eight hour day, OSHA regulations, and even Child Labor laws.


Tyranny = Labor unions, who “extort” employers by collectively bargaining.


Tyranny = Environmental regulations and the EPA.


Tyranny = Federal support and federal standards for public education.


And what do the little ducks NOT consider tyranny?


Not tyranny ... patriotic economics = Billions of dollars a year for corporate subsidies.


Not tyranny ... patriotic economics = Billions dollars a year for interest payments on the national debt run up while spending conservative-approved tax dollars for corporate subsidies. (Which of course is the ultimate and gigantically real welfare fraud in this country)


Not tyranny ... patriotic economics = The Defense budget which is the size of the Himalayas and whose only legitimate justification is revenue and profits to defense contractors (I mean, corporate subsidies at the point of a gun)


I think I'm getting the idea. Republicans have no problem at all opening the public purse for corporate interests. It’s “social spending” that gets their water wings all wet and messy.
