Please Go Galt
I really do wish the right-wing mean-jesus fundies and fraud-market fundies would just stop already with their interminable whining about having to live among homogays and wanton women and uppity negroes and Big Gu'ment meddling, and go ahead and build their Galt's Gulch or Republic of Gilead in some benighted county in Alabama or Arizona or whatever and pull up the drawbridge behind them. All their threats and bragging about their moral superiority and economic indispensability really are getting profoundly stale, one wonders why they never put their money where their mouths are and leave us to degenerate into Sodom or the Gulag as we deserve. Just think, they can wallow in self-congratulation among the like-empty-minded like pigs in shit, and it's certainly not like any of us will miss any of those lousy skimmers and scammers and bullies and know-nothings. It's a win win proposition, if ever I heard of one. And once they all die in the inevitable septic sewer or bloodbath we can just cover the ruins in cement like Chernobyl and go on with our lives. What's not to like?
