    This should probably be titled “Boston Tea Party.” I recall learning that the Tea Act of 1773 spawned several protests. While the Bostonians dumped the tea into the harbor, I recall that the protesters in the south (Savannah?) looted it.

    They should be tossing that program and the buearucrats that run it in the harbor! Welfare is not a federal government function.

    The ship wouldn’t hold all the millions of deadbeats. Throw ‘em overboard, they’ll learn to swim!

    Most Tea Party folks just want to see fiscally responsible government. Currently we are handing an impossible debt load onto the future all because there are so many folks who feel such a great debt is owed to so many and they don’t understand that the money government spends to try and salve those concerns actually has to come from somewhere. Even worse, when government does it, it doesn’t even do it well. Current unfunded liability projection for Medicare, alone, is over $110 TRILLION. Social Security IS drawing down on the surpluses it had (and that is assuming the government can afford to pay back the IOU’s to that fund.) Now, are the social conservatives who have co-opted much of the tea party movement a problem, sure, but that stupidity is not related in the cartoon above.

    Not pictured: The conservative poor, up to their necks in the water, who are furious at “those damn libruls” for trying to lower a ladder to help them up because it makes them feel less independent.
    Not that it’ll keep them from using the ladder, mind you- they’ll just try to pull it up after themselves when they climb out.

    Let me see if I understand this. An increase in Food Stamps that was passed several years ago by the Democrat controlled congress as a temporary measure has just expired. And that’s the Republicans fault how???

    Food stamps are used to buy food from local stores. Those stores pay taxes and hire employees who also pay taxes. The food is grown by farmers who pay taxes and hire employees who pay taxes. The food is processed, transported and advertised, ect. All of the people involved in it’s production pay taxes and spend the money they make in stores, buy homes, rent apartments, buy cars ect.

    It is overly simplistic to say that all it does is encourage some to not work. Jobs and employees are subject to the laws of supply and demand too. It you put 20 million people on the street and tell them to work or stave they will mostly try to find work which will drive down wages as employers find cheaper labor. Will you like it when you are replaced by a lower paid employee because you couldn’t stand the thought of them not working.

    Nice to bring up SS debt. However that is only in the case that every human being in the USA stops paying taxes for 40 years. in othe words a grand 2.6 trillion per year for 40 years cut into by inflation

    Meanwhile it is not fiscally conservative to give tax cuts. it is a socially conservative activity. Fiscal conservatism would mean no tax cuts until debt is payed off, not as a rebound action from every deficit

    The concept of having any long term proeject paid for instantly would mean

    No
    . nuclear power
    . Airports
    . Hydro, solar, wind
    . apartment buildings
    . airplanes
    . dockyards
    . Transport ships

    That or we can wait 100 years to buy every piece of infrastructure

    Freeloading banks,wall street, billionaires. oil companies and corporations all get a pass from politicians at the expense of American citizens.

    True, and it’s because they can get the ignorant, welfare-receiving teabillies to deflect public attention from the fact that they are the real parasites of our country.
