Why they’re wingNUTS

I have to admit a guilty pleasure: Watching the mass freakout of America's rightwing over the Supreme Court Ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act. Some of them believe America died (and, for wingnut bonus points, some even think war is now required).

Adding ignorance to the crazy, some rightwing Americans also declare they’ll move to Canada to avoid “Obamacare”—yeah, Canada, with its single-payer nationalised healthcare system AND—as a special added bonus—marriage equality.

The stupid, it burns…

Maybe, as some apparently really wrote on Facebook, they should move to Canada.

War of course there should be war.

After all in their world democracy is where they win all the time and never loose.

Maybe they just need to grow up and not throw temper tantrums when things don't go their way. You know like all six years do at one time or another. They just need a really long time out.

Of course if we really get lucky maybe they'll hold their breath until they turn blue. Wouldn't that be a pretty sight.

Roger: Apart from the whole Islam thing, they actually have more in common with Iran. I'd be happy to contribute to a fund to help them move there.

Jason: Yes, a timeout would be a great idea. I'm quite partial to blue—it's my favourite colour and used to designate states that vote for Democrats.
