So it turns out that many of those poor, "heavily taxed" corporations don't pay ANY income tax at all. Not one single penny. Instead, they get billions of dollars in refunds. GE, Exxon-Mobil, Boeing, Citigroup, Bank of America. No taxes. Nada, zip, zilch.

What I want to know is where is the Tea Party outrage at this theft? (Really, what else would you call it but theft?) Where are the stupid signs and silly hats now? Where are the armed nitwits with the threatening language, misquoting Thomas Jefferson? Time to put up or shut up, Patriots. Get off your asses and get in the streets. I dare you. Just don't wait for the Koch brothers to pay for your little rallies this time.

No? Well, I guess it is easier to scream about the food stamp recipients who might be getting ice cream for their kids instead of bulk staples. They're the ones ripping us all off, right?

Or those spoiled teachers! Hell, they only work 9 months a year! Parasites!

Or those union thugs! They're the ones holding us back, with their pensions, and health care, and collective bargaining.

Or those 'lazy' Mexicans, taking all of the lucrative jobs picking lettuce or grapefruits away from "good Americans."

Of course, you know what the real problem is, don't ya? It's that damn Obama, who wasn't even born here, forcing socialism down our throats!

I keep thinking that at the end of the day there must be a limit to stupidity. Some finite point where even the dullest amongst us finally takes a good, hard look at things and says, "Wait...What?"

But there's no sign of it yet.
