    Justin, I ought to declare a cosmic foul. The last thing a being devoted to harmony in the universe and among people would do is take sides in human politics, seeing that by their very nature, every last political position in it - including whatever preference is your own - is wrong.

    That is precisely why I stay out of politics. As Robert Heinlein (through his chief protagonist) once put it, “Don’t vote, it only encourages them.”

    That said, the Tea Party no more and no less sincerely wants to redress an actual wrong in society than did the Hippies of the 1960’s. That’s what parties are intended to do. The essential problem is that parties and movements start when someone takes one good idea and makes it a panacea.

    Being a Tea Party supporter and a longtime Mythtickle fan, I’ll take the high road and chuckle at the caricature. ;-)

    niaje, Karma doesn’t have a sense of humor. She is the universes’s sense of humor.

    Uh boy, here we go…

    Qiset, Johanan Rakkav, and maeverin- You guys keep wanting to make this a serious entity but it’s a comic strip. Fun. Not an editorial. It’s a response to hippies of the late 60s being a radical social movement, and the tea partiers being a radical social movement in this time. That’s all.

    TheDOCTOR….- I LOVE Trek! How much? I have a separate blog about it, THAT’S how much. www.yearoftrek.wordpress.com Check it out.

    maeverin- Oh wait! Friday’s has a Charlie Sheen reference, you’re gonna love that!

    Cheers!

    I seem to remember Pickard trying to explain to a freshly thawed corpsicle that money had become obsolete, so I’d assume taxation would be in the form of public service. Ferengi were first described as “Yankee Traders,” & their capitalist attitudes were invariably portrayed as primitive & corrupt.

    Heinlein also wrote; Vote if they let you, there may be nothing you want to vote for, but there’s always something you need to vote against. (Pardon if I didn’t get the words exactly, the sentiment is accurate.) His charactors often disagreed.

    Heinlein was right, not voting does encourage them to win and lock you out. Just what they want. Better to demand a right to have a negative vote. It gives us more power and them less.

    The Ferengie were the ultimate Capitalists. The predatory kind we have today with our corporations and their super humanhood. Curiously so were the Borg in their cookie cutter grandious totalitarian mentality. Where have we seen that? Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, any number of the huge conglomerates. Top down dictatorship.

    Well, I vote, cuz I want to encourage ‘em, cuz I’m not as cynical as some folks. I’d go to the blog and vote if I thought it was fair.
