Tea Party Tomorrow on Capitol Hill!

Is anyone going to the Tea Party tomorrow, in Congress? Rep. Bachmann, (R. Minn.) is leading a national Tea Party inside Congress, so ordinary citizens can go to individual Congresspersons' offices and deliver messages in person, messages our officials just don't seem to understand. Starting time is noon.

Ordinary Americans have jobs and don't attend pointless protests on a Thursday.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

I hear that corporate-funded think tanks are busing people there for free. Nothing like fake populist uprisings.

Go Corporations!

"Ordinary Americans have jobs and don't attend pointless protests on a Thursday"

"I hear that corporate-funded think tanks are busing people there for free. Nothing like fake populist uprisings."

Therefore, the "Million Man March" was fake. Sponsored by Corporate America and attended by the Jobless.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Just pointless. Both the Million Man March and this event won't change anything.

My sack is still too sore from all that tea bagging last month. I'll pass on this one.

Who were the corporate sponsors of the Million Man March? Big Oil?

Pink Slip

sponsors, corporate or otherwise of the Million Man March. The men and women who attended were not jobless. Of course I am sure that some who attended were jobless but not as a whole. I don't know where you came up with that Libs.......

(Off subject ) but when the MMM was over, the next day the Mall was cleaner than it was when the men and women convened on the Mall. Not a drop of garbage was left for anyone else to clean up.

Please cite you sources that support your claims, espically the garbage statement.

dont hold your breath.... She's said before that a million men showed up. Actual figures show somewhere under half of that. Figures were requested....

I remember the MM March. About 20-30 students from SJJ attended. Most of them were students and considered "jobless" yet were in attendance.

I was responding to this post:

The Million Man March occured on October 16, 1995 which was a Monday.

And, as stated by Handbanana in the post above 'Ordinary Americans have jobs and don't attend pointless protests on a Monday'.

I wouldn't stand for Handbanana lying about the Tea Party marches just like I won't stand for Handbanana lying about the Million Man March.

And, through my example above, YOU should also be outraged at the LIES about "Ordinary Americans have jobs and don't attend pointless protests on a Thursday"

If you accept that statement for the TEA party marches, then you also must accept that same statement for the Million Man March. It's only "fair".

As long as it gets Congress' attention, I'm all for it. Nice to see Republicans taking to the streets! And, it was announced there will be an encore Fri. at noon. The conservative groundswell is moving along nicely. And it will be carried on Fox, much to the chagrin of those who want to keep it off the air.

You still think protests that "create awareness" can bring about change. Do you still believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, too?

Who wants to keep it off the air?

Such vitriol from the ever tolerant left....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

doing what they do best!

We just saw a tea party candidate take 46% of an electorate. 46% of the electorate is now fake accoring to the libs. LOL

Must be how we keep stealing those elections

MikeyA

46% percent in Republican district. Not a shocker. At the end of the day, The Republican party is becoming whiter, older and more southern.

You may get short term gains, but you can't build long term on that.

There were two "Repubs" on the ticket. So Repubs got 51% of the vote. Tea-partiers got 46%.

But what's notable about Hoffman is he's not a career politician. In fact, when he announced his interested many NY Dems were excited because he was viewed as the weaker candidate. His support came in the final three weeks of the election.

Now he will be back on the ballot in less than a year. He will have the Republic nomination and money and there won't be Scozzafava on the ticket to eat up support.

Short term gains? Repubs have won and are winning the Governorships. Redistricting comes after the 2010. Regardless what happens in the 2010 Congressional races the Repubs stand to win BIG in the Governorships. That means the redistricting will favor Republicans. Republicans will have a leg up because of that fact for 12 years. Is that long term enough?

MikeyA

Too true... when you can't win on your ideas, voter suppression and gerrymandering is a great fall back.

Can't win on our ideas huh? How do you describe two blue states suddenly turning red?

We must have stole those elections then huh?

MikeyA

Virginia is hardly a "Blue State". Christie wasn't a tea bagger and while McDonnell from Virgina is a tea bagger, he ran a moderate who couldn't distant himself fast enough from his wing nut masters theist of 20 years ago.

As a matter of fact both Christie and McDonnell requested that Palin not campaign with them and to avoid the states all together.

The only guy to run on the tea bagging platform didn't win.

It has now been about 36 hours since the 'most definitive victory for conservatism ever' yet according to my sources, Obama is still President, the Senate still has 60 Democrats, and the House gained a Democrat.

A few points. In every of the elections exit polling showed the biggest issue that swayed the electorate was "the economy and taxes". The tea party's are a political campaign based on taxes and the economy.

Second point: Most conservatives really don't care what Palin does. The only people who really care are liberals. We just keep pushing her because it gets you libs all riled up.

It's funny to hear you say Virginia is not a Blue state. After the the 2004, 2006, and 2008 elections Dems were touting it as a blue state.

Dems saw on average a 17% drop in these elections. Even the ones they won weren't impressive compared to a year ago. If that trend continues there will be a Republican House of Representatives in 2010.

Lets see the 1% own more than the 99% of this country. We all know (or should know) the current health care system is unsustainable and will lead to the ruination of the country (Debt). So we will have a rise of the income tax on the 1% of maybe 3-5%. Yet we have all these middle class protesters in Washington telling the rest of us they don't want their health care changed. What is with these people? I know they're not stupid so what has happened to their critical thinking ability? Are they so mesmerized by uneducated elite talking heads in media that they no longer have a life they can call their own?
