    Sorry, had to say it.

    A very funny, well-done cartoon, especially from a freedom-hating pinko.

    (Anthony: If you don’t realize that the T-B word is offensive, you should look it up. If you already know, that is why you deserve to be flagged.)

    It’s a good analogy of what would happen if we had used todays sensibilities during the revolutionary times and how any media savy well funded bunch of looneys can take over the discussion today.

    They wear teabags on their heads. They send teabags through the mail as a statement. The term “teabagger” fits them far more aptly than it does those who engage in that other practice, in which no actual teabags are used. Sure, the earlier figurative usage predates this literal one, but words can have multiple meanings and if they don’t like the association they should have picked their symbol more wisely.

    Advertising history is full of brand names that have turned out to be embarrassing for those attempting to market them, and while it’s less than glorious to have to do a name change, once people find a reason to snigger at you it’s pretty much impossible to get them to stop. You can decide for yourself what name YOU want to use, but you can’t control what name OTHERS use for you…

    pschearer, give me a break.

    Video from a Hawaii conference of tea baggers showed them selling silver-plated tea-bag earrings and broaches to each other.

    Add that to what Fritzoid graciously supplied, and I anxiously await your apology.

    By the way…could you elucidate your “freedom-hating” comment”? Since as stated, it has no veracity, what part of the cartoon do you find untruthful???

    Does “freedom-hating” mean that we shouldn’t be concerned about foreign or multi-national corporations having more influence over our elections than poor single American voters?

    Or did you mean that tea-baggers who hypocritically denigrate the very social programs from which they benefit are “freedom-hating”?

    Or did you mean that right-wing mouthpieces like Faux News who get their funding from foreign sources are “freedom hating”?

    Which is it?

    I look forward to your response. Or if this turns out to be yet another of your hit-and-attacks, I accept yet another unchallenged and uncontested refutation of your drivel.

    The fact that, when Fox News (or whoever) first dreamed up the idea of using a teabag as their emblem, nobody in the room raised their hand and said “Uh, we might wanna rethink this one…” is an indication of just how far out-of-the-loop their “brain trust” actually is. Any Madison Ave pitchman who sold something like this to a client without Googling the possible associations for teabags would have been fired so fast he wouldn’t know what hit him.

    But since I’m a big-hearted kinda guy, I’ll offer them an alternative name. Since they’re so strongly committed to combatting the Democrat agenda, maybe they can call themselves the Donkey-Punch Party?

    Leave pschearer alone. You shouldn’t pick on the mentally handicapped.

    Teabagger has become a completely acceptable term for these imbeciles. And, no, it’s not like the blacks calling themselves “N-words”. The blacks at least have a clue about what they’re doing.

    Hey gang! Did you know this?

    The Boston Tea Party was organized by tea smugglers! It’s a fact that John Hancock became one of the richest colonists by smuggling tea. Then, he organized and financed a tea party to dump legal ( and much cheaper ! ) english tea into the harbor so that he could charge more for his tea. And here we are, believing these guys were patriots that wanted to save us all from taxation without blablabla!! Today’s tea party movement is aptly named.—-It’s supported and organized by selfish rich pigs that are willing to lie to us suckers in order to protect their wealth—without caring a bit about us.

    For the record: I’m not against tea smuggling. But let’s call a spade a spade. The Revolution was not the noble endeavor we’ve been taught in school. It was an enormous “price fixing scheme” for which many men died in a war. Who died? I’ll tell you who did NOT die—-John Hancock and his rich friends

    There were other things going on as well in Revolutionairy times. We were not allowed to make cloth. We were required by English law to ship cotton to England, they made it into textiles and shipped it back making it expensive and then they taxed it.
