Tea Party Against Reason

We all know that the Tea Party does not have the highest intellectual standards for its agenda, or its members. No matter how hard you try to look intelligent, at the end it comes down to: "Stupid is as Stupid does".
When it happens in my own backyard I would just laugh, except that it is scary to know those people want to run the country.
As St. Petersburg Times is reporting:
A Citrus County tea party group has announced that it's fighting new restrictions on boating and other human activities in Kings Bay that have been proposed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

"We cannot elevate nature above people," explained Edna Mattos, 63, leader of the Citrus County Tea Party Patriots, in an interview. "That's against the Bible and the Bill of Rights."

If you want to fight for issues you believe in, use some brains, come up with some reasonable (and factual) explanations. The Bible does not cut it!
