I do not know how Teabaggers (The Tea Party) sees themselves; but I see them as shallow, selfish, incoherent, trivial people! Like Bill Maher on “Real Time with Bill Maher” says, “I will stop calling them Tea Baggers when they stop calling it Obamacare.” Now the government is facing a shut down because they have shown they cannot play well with others. They say to themselves….it’s our very minority ideal way for all or we will just take our ball and go home – while shutting down the government! The Democrats and Republicans have enough problems without the “Teabaggers” bringing their frivolous ideas to government. To use another expression from Bill Maher, they are like the kid that only reads one paragraph, when the teacher says who read the chapter and that kid raises his hand to ask a question about that paragraph to make it seem they read (or know) something.

“With 43 million people in the US living in poverty, 20 million unemployed, The Patriot Act constitution buster, US record military spending in 2010, record deficits, 50 thousand troops and 20 thousand mercenaries in Iraq, 94 thousand troops and 170 thousand mercenaries in Afghanistan, GITMO still in business. We are talking about a birth certificate? Nice!” (I saw this posted at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/18/the-2012-speculatron-week_3_n_837854.html#s255150&title=Haley_Barbour)
The paragraph they did read, they did not even understand. They read – cut government spending and for some reason they think it means cut any program they cannot benefit from directly. Many of them profess to be Christian, attend these WalMart Mega-churches and read the Bible the same way – the Bible hates the same things they do – Gays!! These people attended college to pledge Mom’s sorority or Dad’s fraternity, oh… and to get a degree. They never thought of college as a place to get an education and actually learn something!
Many of the Teabagger Party do not even believe in evolution or global warming. Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Host of PBS NOVA scienceNOW says it best, “The nice thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe it.” Even when they can be proven wrong with science they just feel what they “believe” is foundation for governmental policy.
Why do the teabaggers feel they are acting on some mandate from the people? Where is that coming from? The Republicans barely have control of the House and not many old school Republicans will endure this teabag farce for long. Do they really feel they are doing what is best for Americans? They should see Americans see they are acting for their own self-interest (pockets). The poor don’t watch Fox News and can’t be the loudest, they have bigger problems than worrying where Obama was born. Or is it simply the poor have an inability to organize, protest, and in some cases vote because of limited means or jobs that are more important for feeding their family, than concerns of governmental policy. They better enjoy their ride because I can only hope it will be VERY short lived.
Help me out… give anything… even if it’s only a $1

So what happens when science proves a theory or hypothesis wrong at a later date? Does that mean we’re STUCK with the first theory or hypothesis?
And what about the abortion debate, where the pro-choice crowd simply compares a developing embryo to a cancerous tumor? Cancer tends to kill, but a developing embryo is, in and of itself, human life.
And let’s look at the graphic you show for a moment that depicts the political differences between the general public and scientists. I won’t argue the numbers, but given these numbers I’d say I have a problem with science in general if more than half of the scientists follow one political prescription. Put another way: would you have a problem if 55% of scientists were avowed Conservative Christians? Would that make you call into question many of the scientific premises, hypothesis’ and theories that have been suggested?
