Calling all Lib-tards, The Fall session is in order.
 Ok with local elections in states beginning I thought it would be a good time to have a meeting. So the topic is going to be the Tea Party. Do you think that the Tea Party is going to split the Redumblicans apart, or make them stronger when they see that so many are joining the tea party.  The Tea party is made up mostly of white extremely Conservative republicans who feel the party has become to liberal. (Good God).  Headed by people such as Sara Palin and  Christine O'Donnell.  Who in my opinion should be given the Citizenship test to see how badly they would fail it.  Ok so what do you guys think? The tea party helping or hurting the Democrats?  Please remember this is a political poll and it can get heated. Everyone remember the coc please, and republicans are welcome just be prepared for debating your point.

I found this to be quite amusing if you have an extra 5 minutes Calling all Lib-tards, The Fall session is in order. Photo

I went to a tea party once ,  didn't really care for it much as it was not quite my kind of crowd -  but i was drawn in as i love me some tea !   But afterwards decided that even the good tea was not worth having to put up with the "nose in the air" atmosphere.

I kind of look at the political parties in somewhat the same way , esp the "tea party" - i think you can find some common ground and things you agree with attached to any of the parties but the question is -  in the end is the whole package worth it - because lets face it politic's on any level puts the "dirt" in dirty business and in the end most push the idea(s) they think people want to hear most and which most puts them in line to get the most backing from their own party and prospected investors !

The tea party is no different in my opinion it is just another added drop to muddy the political water , which sadly keeps american's from the real point i guess which is why do our politicians not do more of what we want and ask for - as they are supposed to be working for us ?  Yet once in office rarely does anyone in the Political business ever keep to the promises made - and use various excuses why things ultimately change once they are voted in - i guess honesty and integrity don't buy ya a whole lot of votes or more importantly a whole lot of "donations"


Guess that is why i am not huge into politics and don't get  all worked up about it because in the end i ask myself , am i not getting robbed and lied to by all of these clowns in one way shape or form ?    Huh sure seems that way


Don't get me wrong i love america , i respect and appreciate the poeple who fight to keep us free , i love the idea of what america stands for ........  it's just too bad that so many in Washington are so clueless reguardless of what party they claim  !

 I am not trying to leave out the men of the party there are many of them as well.  Like Mark Williams the former chairman of the tea party who was released for PUBLIC racist remarks such as.

President Obama was an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug. Ans also said that why would blacks want tax cuts? Because how would they get a wide screen t.v. in every room. And my favorite a fictitious letter written to Abraham Lincoln in it he said.  We coloreds took a vote and we don't cotton to the emancipation thing. Freedom would mean having to work for real. 

And the other men of the party such as Sal Russo and Mark Williams.

I can't load the video at work...but this alone made me :

A guide to Sarah Palin's favorite strong-willed “mama grizzlies” of the Tea Bagger movement. America's in good, strong, female hands. (Assuming you are not gay, a rape victim, poor, a non-christian, foreign or have ever masturbated.)

I'm not sure if the Tea Party is hurting or helping Democrats, but I'm pretty sure they are hurting America as a whole. It's difficult enough to be things accomplished with all of the various parties and differences that already exist. Things that should be agreed upon and seem like common sense issues in the end are reverted back to party affiliations. The last thing America needed in my opinion was the increased visibility of the Tea Party. As much as I've read about the party (which equals to as much as I could take before getting completely agitated), it still confuses me sometimes because it seems like the tea party-ers aren't even on the same page, and I doubt that every "member" knows exactly what the party is about. Basically, the party adds fuel to fire and throws kinks in both major political platforms. But I just don't see their usefulness.

I think it's interesting that they chose "Tea Party" as a name. Reminds me of a famous Tea Party thrown by The March Hare, The Mad Hatter, The Dormouse, and The White Rabbit.
Just like today's Tea Party it was also run by a bunch of lunatic nutjobs.

 See that's what i'm thinking. All they are doing are splitting the republicans, and that's nothing but good for the democratic party. We already know Palin wont pull anything together so let's hope she gets the nomination. 
#9 | 1282 days ago

Wish I could of had 2 choices.. I do not like the Palins in any size or variety....she is a very scary woman and her daughter is a bit much. Their 15 mins is up and I believe it's time for them to go....

I will say the "tea party", is getting the focus back to some degree on the things that matter....it's one of those get your butt off the couch and go vote America....if there's one thing the last major election proved to me, is one person with a whole lot of others can make a difference...

#10 | 1282 days ago

Ask a typical 'tea-partier' who Dick Armey is, and they probably do not know that he is the puppetmaster pulling the strings to make them dance to his tune. These people think that they are so independent...they are so patriotic...they are so unique. When in fact, they are corporate puppets and the people funding their organizations are laughing at them for fighting their war for them.

Just my opinion, but I have a very low view of the 'tea-party'. And, yes, I did keep it in lower-case letters for a reason.

 Yes you are right. This last election brought forth a whole army of new voters.  And that can never be a bad thing. 
#13 | 1282 days ago

What I like about the tea party is it chipping away at the party's power. Instead of accepting the candidate picked by a few party leaders, they chose their own. Hopefully liberals will do the same in the near future. Then congressmen can vote their conscience and not just the party line because they are afraid of losing the funding the party holds the purse stings to.

We've gone from a choice between dumb and dumber to a choice between dumb, dumber, and lunatic, but if we continue down this path we will eventually get candidates worth voting for.
I was wondering when there would be another meeting.

The minute they ask for your vote, they're a politician. Only way to avoid that is not to vote, and they does no good either. Screwed is the term, i believe.

I'm probably not going to say stuff here that is going to make me very popular, but shoot, like I've ever not spoken my mind for fear of not being popular.

In some ways, I view the US of A just like I view the situation in Greece. The United States has had and still has an issue with spending (Republican or Democrat governments have generally been the same). Sure there have been some periods in time when surpluses have been run but those have been few and far between. Some American politicians have campaigned on reigning in deficit spending but in the end, either those platforms were a guise just to be elected or the actual program became diluted to satisfy special interest groups and lobbyers. As a result, the federal debt (not including state debt) has risen to over $13 Trillion. This is not sustainable.
I’m not saying that the feds shouldn’t even incur debt but rather they should pick their places when to run a deficit and when to run surpluses. When times are good, pay off debt and when the economy is sucking and unemployment levels are too high, deficit financing should help nurse the economy back into shape. Unfortunately, this kind of thinking doesn’t reverberate well with most of the public since pulling in the purse strings even when times are good, means that not everyone is getting what they consider their fair share of the pie. For many politicians, making cuts to certain programs or projects, is political suicide so they wouldn’t dare propose this.
I’ve always thought that I don’t want my children and their children paying for my bills. We should (except as noted above) always pay for our own way. Unfortunately, that’s not the way many countries work; the politicians would rather promise the moon and fund it with debt. Again, this is unsustainable.
What America needs is a politician (Republican, Democrat, or otherwise) who can communicate and generate a wave of public opinion the belief that deficit federal funding is only required in the most unusual of circumstances. The chances that such a charismatic and tough minded politician will be elected are slim in my mind.

 I am not at all jealous of people who have a solid faith and belief. What I do have a problem with is the black is black and white is white that every religion teaches. Their teachings of intolerance is what makes me stay away from religion.  And I also believe that we are governed by the constitution not the Holy Bible.

Thanks for that.     I read somewhere a long time ago that all US Presidents were related to the Royal Family  in England.  The article i read was saying that the Royal family were of the kingly line of Judah and therefore so were the presidents of the USA, proving that God sets up kingdoms and tears them down.  The Bible is so facinating, if people only knew.
