    Coburn has a report coming that will show $85 billion could be cut from the Pentagon over ten years - See more at: Even Defense Spending Can Be Cut | Tea Party PatriotsTea Party Patriots
    Pentagon spending per year? 700 billion x 10 years = 7 trillion - I'm sure that 'cut' will mean a lot to the Pentagon. What is that? Like 1% a year? As I said, get back at me when you've got something other than welfare cuts.

    Sure it does. All fields? Or just the ones you don't like?

    Professor Dan M. Kahan of the psychology department at Yale says he was surprised to discover a positive correlation between science comprehension and members of the Tea Party:
    Well, perhaps some of those previous opinions could've been dispelled earlier when the New York Times wrote in 2010 that Tea Partiers are more educated - and financially better off - than the rest of the public

    "However, those who identified as part of the tea party movement were actually better versed in science than those who didnít, Kahan found. The findings met the conventional threshold of statistical significance, the professor said."

    When people talk about the tea party being stupid, simple context shows that those people are talking about in relation to politics since that is what the tea party is about, politics. Smart people in one area can be flaming idiots in another. Hell, there are phd's who are libertarians, the extreme in educated and stupid together. Tea parties are demonstratably stupid politically, which says exactly jack **** about how much they know about science.

    I really only have one comment/question. If Teapartiers are so smart in the head, why do they think and talk so much out their asses?

    Good question.

    While I'll agree with most everything, and realize my experiences are only personal . . . I'd be remiss if I did not mention that out of all the people I know on a intimate level that are Tea Party folk, the majority would not know the three branches of our government. Ask them how the constitution gets amended and they look at you like you are speaking Russian. Now, that is not to say there aren't really smart Tea Party Folk . . . I just don't know any smarter than me . . . and that's not sayin' much because I'm pretty much a dumb arse.

    I would also like to mention, I don't talk politics with my Tea Party friends unless it is face to face, but I learn what questions to ask by what they post on facebook. Lastly, it does not change how I feel about them on a personal level, because 99% of them would have my back no matter what . . . they just aren't all that smart, and neither am I. I do not apologize for being a product of my environment. The only thing that makes me different from almost all the people I grew up with is my military experience. Not smarter, just more experienced in other cultures.
