Teabagger of The DayTom Grimes.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — When Tom Grimes lost his job as a financial consultant 15 months ago, he called his congressman, a Democrat, for help getting government health care.
Mr. Grimes, who receives Social Security, has filled the back seat of his Mercury Grand Marquis with the literature of the movement, including Glenn Beck's "Arguing With Idiots" and Frederic Bastiat's "The Law," which denounces public benefits as "false philanthropy."
"If you quit giving people that stuff, they would figure out how to do it on their own," Mr. Grimes said.
Mr. Grimes, for his part, is thinking of getting a part-time job with the Census Bureau. But he is also planning, he said, to teach high school students about the Constitution and limits on government powers.
"I don’t think that the unemployment thing is going to change," he said.
I'm still scratching my head as to how this guy lost his job as a financial consultant.
