    In the real world the Tea Party was slapped down and received nothing but scorn.

    Yes- from your perspective. Ultimately, fiscal conseratives WILL prevail. I don’t know when, or in what form, but they will prevail. You cannot keep kicking the can down the road FOREVER. At some point, you WILL pay the piper……………………….

    Unlike Tim here, this country was built on being able to say what you want. Now, anytime someone says or does something a liberal does not like thy are chastised publically.

    Remember, every one of the last 6 mass shootings were carried out by registered Democrats and Liberals, Not some “Tea Party” extremist.

    Tea Party extremists prefer to kill America then kill people.
    The only way out this mess is to cut spending and raise revenues. The only way to raise revenues is to raise taxes so the problem will never go away until the right is willing to negotiate with common sense.

    Seems to me that the “Tea Party” started out as one thing and turned into what we see now. Anyone care to explain this to me?

    And one tactic I’ve seen to make sure the piper gets paid is to piss away 24 billion dollars!

    Is it, race baiting comes from the left. What do we do, protest then clean up after ourselves. Not like the occupy people.

    I don’t count myself as a democrat, republican or tea partyer. But I find the systematic riducule of the tea party vile. They simply want to right the course of a wayward nation that is about to spend itself into oblivion. We need less government more self responsibility. It is crazy, but Obama doesn’t even think our immense and growing debt is an issue.

    Obama is still perfectly fine with seeking new entitlements to give away to a growing portion of our population that honestly think they deserve to be showered with money and benefits well beyond their contribution to society and well beyond providing a helping hand to those in true need.

    Just an FYI about the poor in the US. A person making minimum wage in the US is easily in the top 10% of wage earners in the world. Go to globalrichlist.com if you want to check it out for yourself. So what we consider poor in the US is considered super wealthy by many in the world.

    We can either solve our debt issue now which will be painful regardless of how we do it. We need to cut costs period!! We need to raise taxes period!! But every penny of the new taxes should be spent on one thing and one thing only — debt reduction. And not one penny of what is currently obligated for debt reduction should be redirected ( a favorite tactic of politicians).

    We need to keep paying what we are currently paying for the debt ceiling and then raise taxes and have all the new tax go for debt reduction. It will probably take a couple of generations to pay off this massive debt, but if we don’t address the problem soon, our debtors will address it for us by refusing to buy the bonds that feed our addiction.

    It doesn’t matter what the Tea Party’s intent is, when their understanding is simple-minded and their actions are damaging.


    It also doesn’t matter what a poor person in America’s wage is compared to a poor person in sub-Saharan Africa, when you are talking about being able to afford housing, food and healthcare. What matters is the cost of housing, food and healthcare where the person lives. That is not rocket science.


    I actually agree with you about not redirecting funds willy-nilly (note that I am not going to say never, as there are going to be times that it is absolutely necessary), and the need to pay down debt, but it doesn’t help your case to load it with a disregard for other aspects of reality.

    There is a very bad miscalculation by the Democrats in all this. They assumed that the TeaBirchers “really wouldn’t do that”, because it’s, well, stupid. Things like gov’t shutdowns, sequesters, debt ceiling, etc. They assumed they can make some kind of deals with them.
    .
    Well, there is no dealing with them. If they listen to right-wing radio, watch FOX News and read their propaganda online media and believe what they tell them (and they do), then you need to know something about them. They have a visceral hatred of Obama, and they don’t want a government that has Obamacare, or Social Security, or Medicare, or public education, or the EPA, or the IRS, or the minimum wage, immigration reform, food stamps, infant nutrition… and the list goes on.
    .
    ‘thing is, they don’t want anybody else to have those government functions, either.
    .
    The hypocritical thing happens when their area suffers a natural disaster, and they look to government to bail them out. An example is South Dakota, who voted in Teabagger Rep. Kristi Noem, who vowed to shut down the government (after getting a half million in subsidies for the family farm). Well, the ranchers are suffering horribly from the blizzard, but were miffed that government offices were shut down. I mean, WTF? You people voted in the wingnuts who closed the government, and now you complain about it?
    .
    So how do you “compromise” with people who want to destroy the government? And, of course, they know that the President is a Marxist, socialist, Nazi muslim dictator from Africa who is financing Al Qaeda and wants to destroy this country with Obamacare. They know this because they live in a bubble of extreme right wing media telling them it’s the end times and to be very, very afraid..

    It isn’t so much that we don’t want to cut spending in the US, it’s about priorities. The tea party wants to cut “entitlements” while actually raising military and other foreign involvements that only cost us, both monetarily and with worldwide respect. There goals are extremely short term and short sighted. They are quite willing to sell out the future and the well being of America for short term bottom line gain that goes only to a very few people. This isn’t just with caring for our people, all of them, but in sensible stewardship of the world we all live in.
    Not only that, but they are willing to sell out democracy to attain their short sighted goals. The recent debacle with the shutdown is a perfect example. It cost us 24 billion dollars to gain at best not much. Obamacare is not so bad as all that to be worth that much pain and destruction. Besides it isn’t even the program, Republicans proposed it after all, but who’s name is on it. How does that make any sense to anybody sane?
