    In the middle — the MIDDLE — of The Great Depression Congress set about gold standarding the economy back into ‘balance.’ The Great Depression then lasted until the WWII.

    If I need to work to live, and I need to commute to work, I do NOT sell my VW car to put — momentarily — my gas bill into balance. I borrow, live frugally, string out gas payments, and plan to move up the income chain during better times. Better times are coming. The elephant should let go and let ’em come on.

    @Ms. Ima

    You mean all those “takers” on Social Security, Medicare, using those government roads and sewers, eating safe, disease free govt. inspected food from the grocery or depending on bloated government police and fire protection?

    The tea party is going to cost us a million jobs or more by forcing the sequester, which would never have even been proposed in a smart (non-GOP) congress. It’s a dumb solution for a nonexistent problem. Just the GOP’s cup of tea.

    Liberal morons blame it all on the GOP – look at California as a prime example of what liberals do everyone with a right mind is lleaving that state – we need a clean slate across the board GOP & Dem representatives alike have ruined this economy & country. Jackass is the Dem mascot And Elephants weigh down the GOP..

    Always thought it was these damn taxes and depressed wages keeping me down, not some ideology that seems to be losing relevance by the day…

    The Tea Party is losing respect & in decline:

    Why don’t you try making a factual statement sometime, Howgee?

    ^ from above
    Only eight percent (8%) now say they are members of the Tea Party, down from a high of 24% in April 2010 just after passage of the national health care law.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. Half (49%) of voters have an unfavorable view of the movement. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided.

    The GOP will continue to be the ‘STUPID party’ until they recognize the ignorance of the tea-baggers. They’ll NEVER win a presidency while they carry those idiots along with them. That they haven’t learned this yet is exactly why they are still the STUPID party.

    @Mr. King

    “They vote out any tax increases and vote in spending for anything they want.”


    King, our most recent election shows you how incorrect you are. 2 propositions passed the ballot that raised both sales and income taxes to the highest in the nation (income taxes). Referendum in California is just one element of the process, and doesn’t have near the success rate of the propositions. Also, the courts often intervene (as with ban on gay marriage) to further complicate the process. This process is not for the exclusive use of the republicans, is constantly employed by democrats as well and is not a simple process to “revoke” a law. The link is from KCET, our L.A. PBS station. Oh yes, I’m a long time resident of Southern California and very politically active on a state/local level. I am a libertarian, not a rep. or dem, although I have voted for both parties at times, depending on the candidate or proposition involved.

    From your comment you clearly know nothing of reality.

    The Tea Party does little to promote anything, they simply stand in the way of progress, rather like logs jamming a river. The right wingers have always wanted to progress to halt, or even regress, so that it would be like it was in their “good old days.” Problem is, their good old days were terrible days for others like women, minorities, gays, non-Christians, etc. The right wing will always drag down this country, for they have no new ideas, they simply cling to old, sadly out-dated ideas.
    Progress will progress, fortunately, but it will always be “two steps forward, one step back” because of these loads.

    Howie said, “But how many fulltime jobs have been lost just the last four years, ARod. Reality man—give it a try.”

    It is hypocritical to ignore factual data and then tell someone else to give reality a try. Most of the job losses during Obama’s term were in the first 13 weeks. Job losses began slowing down dramatically in May 2009, and the trend swung positive in Jan 2010 and remained positive since then. By the end of Obama’s first year, the US recovered most of the jobs lost during W’s last year. Here’s the data:

    The tea party was started by the Koch brothers, not a grass-roots thing. I’m not sure how they plan to benefit from it, but it has had it’s coup and taken over the GOP. I really see this in Kansas, where I live.
    the land of Brownback the blind. And Kobach the Consti-hated.
    I can’t understand why there are are ANY women in the GOP, but some of the most vicious are Bachman, Brewer, Orly Taits, they must hate their own gender, their sisters and their daughters.

    SABRSteve, that is what the original grass roots Tea Party was. It no longer is. As Wabbit correctly pointed out, it has been co-opted by wealthy individuals who only want 3 things: lower taxes in their tax brackets, lower business taxes, and relaxation of pollution regulations. Just look at who funded their largest PACs, and the history of Dick Armey, who ran one of them (FreedomWorks).
