Elephant: Who knew we were the tea? Tom: You were the only ones on board with them.

Finally, some of us are figuring out that booting one party and putting in the other hasn’t been nor will it ever be the solution.
Demonizing is much more simple bi-directionally than multi-dimensionally.
Very few see it that way. They are comic relief, if anything.
The cartoonist’s comment: priceless!
Who will be our first Ayatollah?
I’d ask what would be our national religion, but that much is already obvious. Then we can officially declare war on other religions.
They are actually fairly close to the original tea partiers.
They’ve felt voiceless & object to taxes.
The founding fathers wrote some impressive documents.
The founding weird uncles threw some tea in the bay.
The original TEA party had Social Security and Medicare, et al?
www.americanthinker.com article “Conservative America Ready to Take Control”….the “unabashed conservatives who are winning Republican primaries….are standard bearers of a vast army.”
(think Reagan, 1980, and the awakened Moral Majority)
all those Hate Speech attacks on the Tea Party population come from Leftists and Liberals who seem to believe they are the Ordained Royalty to Rule USA forever!
I think the Republicans are beginning to understand how Victor Frankenstein must have felt.
“No…stay back! I CREATED you!”
Let’s remember this is the crowd that says “keep the gubment outta my medicare.” These are the mindless ditto-heads that don’t need any facts. We have a black man in the whitehouse and that’s just wrong. They are unincumbered by the thought process.
Can anyone tell me where I could find the term “czar” in the Constitution? I, for one, don’t like being the frog in the pan of water. It does seem like it is getting warmer with each action this administration takes. I think the TEA party is the forerunner of a much larger movement on the horizon.
Non-Hispanic White 79%
Non-Hispanic Black 6%
Democrat supporters 6%
Well, he’s right, they DO have blacks and Democrats!
But when you look at it that way, 6% of 100 is 6… and 6% of 40 is ~2… so if this is truly bipartisan support, than that would mean that the Healthcare bill was bipartisan.
But in follow-up interviews, Tea Party supporters said they did not want to cut Medicare or Social Security — the biggest domestic programs, suggesting instead a focus on “waste.”
Some defended being on Social Security while fighting big government by saying that since they had paid into the system, they deserved the benefits.
Others could not explain the contradiction.
How does that work, exactly?
“Can anyone tell me where I could find the term “czar” in the Constitution? I, for one, don’t like being the frog in the pan of water. It does seem like it is getting warmer with each action this administration takes. ”
I love the “in the Constitution” stuff, it can work both ways. Like, “can anyone tell us where in the Constitution it says the federal government can deny marriage rights and focus benefit taxation on a specific type of birth minority?” or “can anyone tell us where in the Constitution it says the government can use religion to deny or oppress a minority and violate their rights to equal protection under the law?” Things like that. Where’re the ‘strict Constitutionalists’ fighting for the LGBT community? Trying to levy religious legislative oppression against them, gotcha!
Marriage is not defined as a man and a man, a woman and a woman, a man and his cousin, three women to one man, etc….it just isn’t. No one is robbing you of your right to live your life how you want to live it by denying the term “marriage” to living arrangements that are not marriages.
The Tea Party is just standing on the actual Republican platform. If all those so-called R’s were actually loyal to their profession, there would be no need to throw them out. For instance, look at Arlen Specter, a complete careerist. He turned coat. The Tea Party is, in essence, tossing out the turncoats before they completely abandon the party altogether. A little “house cleaning”.
“Marriage is not defined as a man and a man, a woman and a woman, a man and his cousin, three women to one man, etc….it just isn’t. No one is robbing you of your right to live your life how you want to live it by denying the term “marriage” to living arrangements that are not marriages.”
It may not have started out that way, but having attended several “TEA Party” events, and watching their current rants with Heritage Foundation sponsorship, it appears to have BECOME the ranting of what we called “The extremist religious right”. This is, and alway has been, an over-loud, and over-represented in the press, MINORITY OF AMERICANS.
Seeing Gary Bauer and O’Donnel, and listening to what they’re really saying– nope, it isn’t just elephants thrown overboard for their support, but all who oppose the dunking chair and witch burning.
“You were the only ones on board with them.”
Too true, LOL!
See if you can guess who espouses these ideas:
Man! The reich wing party is in dire straits!
First they get rid of Barry Goldwater republicans in favor of “conservative” republicans like Reagan.
Now they are getting rid of the “conservative” republicans in favor of teabagger republicans.
Hey moderates if you’re still out there: TAKE YOUR PARTY BACK.
“The reich wing party”
I wouldn’t call the GOP that. The reich wing party is still to come.
and declare the earth flat
The term “czar” was an invention of the media to get attention, get over it.
You shouldn’t listen to what political pundits (of both sides) say. If tomorrow the Tea Party formed the government, that Abortin was illegal, that the army and police were private businesses, that civil rights were back to what they were in 1950, that homosexuality was illegal, do you think Coulter and Limbaugh could say “everything is okay”?
No. Those guys are paid to say they are outraged. Nothing to complain about, no ratings, no money and after a few days of no news, you’re a nobody.
Even if they don’t think something, they have to say it if they sense it can get them fame.
