The following is from a friend’s facebook page. (h/t Steve) And it sums up, perfectly, the farcical and absurd nature of the right-wingnut mind.
“A day in the life of Joe Wingnut:
Joe gets up at 6:00 A.M., and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee.
The water is clean and good because some ‘tree-hugging liberal’ fought for minimum water quality standards.
With his first swallow of coffee he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised.
All but $10 worth of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some ‘liberal union workers’ fought their employers for paid medical insurance–now Joe gets it too.
He prepares his morning breakfast of bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some ‘girly man liberal’ fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.
In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some ‘crybaby liberal’ fought for his right t know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.
Joe dresses, walks outside, and he takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist ‘wacko liberal’ fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air.
He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some ‘fancy-pants liberal’ fought for affordable public transportation.
Joe now begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent benefits, retirement paid holidays, and vacation because some ‘lazy union members’ fight and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because he doesn’t want his employees (such as Joe) to call the union.
If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some ‘stupid liberal’ didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.
It’s noontime, and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so that he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some ‘godless liberal’ wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the great depression.
Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some ‘elitist liberal’ decided that Joe and the government would be better if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.
Joe is now home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country
He gets in the car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some ‘America hating liberal’ fought for car safety standards.
He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmer’s Home Administration.
Joe is happy to see his father , who is now retired . His father lives on social security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese eating liberal, made sure that he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to.
Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on talk radio show, The radio host keeps saying that for the on then way home and liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn’t mention that that the beloved Republicans fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.
Joe, of course, agrees. ‘We don’t need those ‘big government liberals’ running our lives!’After all. I’m a self-made man who believes that everyone should take care of themselves, just like I do.
These liberal snowflakes just want to spend other people’s money.'”
