Imagine with me a small city. This small city is economically strapped due to some debatable decisions. People are losing jobs. The townspeople are miserable. To top it all off many of their children are being kidnapped and eventually murdered. Worse yet, this serial killer has been murdering at least one child every day for the past 37 years.
The really ridiculous part is that everybody knows who this serial killer is. Then, why haven’t they caught the guy? Well, they decided they had better focus on economics first. The logic is that rather than worry about the future of the children that do not make it, they want to ensure a bright future for the children that are not needlessly murdered.
That is what this is: Tea Party Avoids Divisive Social Issues. (HT: DG)
