The Tea Party Picked Another Doozy

Yet another new governor brought in with Tea Party backing, yet another exercise in insanity.

This one takes place in New Mexico.  Republican Susana Martinez, elected with the approval of the Tea Party, appointed a new head of the state's Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department.  The problem?  He's a complete and utter crackpot who tries to scare the public into thinking environmentalism=communism.

Plus!  Abortions are perpetrated by alien monsters who take the fetuses and transform them into gay men, thus destroying marriage!

"Newly elected New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R) has made a series of troubling moves since taking office last month, from proposing the elimination of a crucial state women’s services commission to making her first priority the revocation of illegal immigrants’ driver’s licenses. But the Tea Party-backed governor’s selection of Harrison Schmitt to head the state’s Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, which oversees all environmental matters in New Mexico, is the most disturbing action to date.

"Schmitt, a retired astronaut and former U.S. Senator, has said he believes the leaders of the environmental movement are communists, and that when these communist environmentalists are appointed to government positions, citizens need to 'wake up' and 'take control of their government again.'"

Wow.  NM does not sound like the place to be... unless your head is in outer space.  Hahaha!  That was funny.  Cuz he's an astronaut.  Get it?



  1. These people might be a little crazy, but the ultimate goal is the same - I agree with them to an extent. Any environmentalism that goes beyond proper waste disposal is a total sham - and all these excess regulations are costing us money. While efficiency helps in the long run, our focus now should b e rebuilding, not further restricting ourselves - all the restrictions can come later when we can afford them.

  2. Aaron, what same goal do they have?

    What is deregulating environmental restrictions have anything to do with environmentalism? It's just going to allow corporations to treat the environment even shittier.

    PS: the corporations that are lobbying to relax environmental regulations can afford the restrictions

  3. Aaron, this has to be the silliest thing you habe ever said. You seriously believe that climate change is BS? Or that conserving natural resources is a waste?
