Out of the Blue

When I went out to deal with the ice the other day, I was greeted by this visage, presumably reminding me "don't worry, be happy" about the whole situation. No salt or other trickery was involved here, just nature being cheerful.

Happy Links: Thanks Ant.

Neolibs: "Privatize all the things!"

How do you go from privatizing one thing to that equating to privatizing all things?

Because this is one item in a long line of things Republicans want and have wanted to privatize or eradicate, you dingus. I think it is probable that literally THE ONLY THING that a Republican has not suggested privatization for is Congress itself (and I'm not sure about that). A selected list:

Social Security!
The post office!
National parks!
Roads!
Fire departments!
Police departments!
The military!
NASA!
The Department of Energy!
Schools!
The FDA!

How do you go from privatizing one thing to that equating to privatizing all things? Fact is it's old and outlived its usefulness. Now it's just a money sink where the several billion dollars a year that the US wastes on it would be much better served here on earth. It's simply another area of government waste that should be cut. Things like a space station should be a commercial endeavor to begin with. If the desire to fund it isn't there than it really isn't wanted or needed anyway...except by a handful of scientists.

There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.
