Tea Party Fraud

Taking Tea with the Lizards

Quote:
"The Tea Party is the latest neoconservative end run around the possibility of a real third party emerging to threaten the status quo. To be honest, it's a brilliant political move, absorbing any energies that might have propelled a real third party. And, in true neocon fashion, it capitalizes on the working class' inchoate anger at the ongoing screwjob they've been getting from both parties for thirty years. The one escalated by Clinton's NAFTA, institutionalized as corporate theft by G.W. Bush, and polished to a high sheen by Obama's bailouts, as he brings home the bacon for those Wall Street syndicates running the economy."(MORE) http://www.joebageant.com/joe/2010/01/taking-tea-with-the-lizards.html

About Joe
Born 1946 in Winchester VA, USA. US Navy Vietnam era veteran.

After stint in Navy became anti-war hippie, ran off to the West Coast ... lived in communes, hippie school buses... started writing about holy men, countercultural figures, rock stars and the American scene in 1971 ... lived in Boulder Colorado until mid 1980s ... 14 years in all ... became a Marxist and a half-assed Buddhist ... Traveled to Central America to write about third World issues...

Moved to the Coeur d'Alene Indian reservation in Idaho, built a cabin, lived without electricity, farmed with horses for seven years ... tended reservation bar (The Bald Eagle Bar), wrote for regional newspapers... generally festered on life in America ... Moved to Moscow, Idaho, worked on third rate newspaper there ... Then moved to Eugene Oregon, worked for an international magazine corporation pushing insecticides and pesticides to farmers worldwide.

Then back to hometown of Winchester VA to settle some scores with the bigoted, murderous redneck town I grew up in. I love'em but they need a good ass kicking.

Died in 2000 when George Bush got elected ... died along with 275 million other Americans ... Plan to rise again from the dead when he is tossed out ...maybe reincarnate as a Commie terrorist on Wall Street ... maybe as a sex worker in Amsterdam ... can't decide ... both have their advantages.

He's not worth reading.....I read as far as him declaring he was a socialist.

Thats's all I needed to know...but I already knew that before I went and read it...because you posted this...

There is no "tea party". There are sore loser Republicans.

Hey folks, pink-slip and friends, know the "teabaggers" are a juggernaught, and they're headed to Washington-->to sweep the One and his stooges O-U-T! And being absolutely powerless to do anything but sit there and watch it happen, must be hell to go through.

Quotes from the article:
"
Mobilizing the masses into a movement was never easy, and never harder than in America where moving the ever-expanding national ass toward anything other than the refrigerator is a job for a fork lift.
-
During the so-called health care debate, a crowd was rounded up to fill his town hall meetings with the sort of screaming, red-faced heartland white folks so loved by news cameras, reviled and therefore watched by urban liberals, both white and several shades darker, and upon which the nightly news depends for ratings and ad revenue. Ruddy overweight working people with neck veins bulging, fists shaking, they made gripping footage for the news hour, even with the sound turned off.
-
Many attendees at Town Hall meetings are sufferers of the agitated inchoate anxiety and frustration of the working class. But as many more at the staged health care rallies, and now the staged "Tea Party" anti-tax rallies, are retired or just plain bored people to whom the free bus ride, or the cheap buffet dinner that often comes with the faux protests looks pretty good. Not to mention the spiffs, the free tote bag of goodies -- chocolates, coupons, a neat little pen light key ring. You can dig through this nickel-dime loot while the group's organizer gives you the "orientation" during the bus ride -- dividing up the planted questions among the alphas in the group, giving tips on how to short circuit the opposing side's speaking opportunities, booing on cue, and so on. And sometimes there is even a free trip to Washington D.C. later to do more of the same, if you show enough talent for the cameras. Boucher's attendees had little talent, and not even a gnat's ass worth of understanding of the issue. But they knew the Devil's mark, and the Devil's mark is abortion. So they responded for the cameras just as they have been conditioned to do." ;-)

Mr. Strickland's dilemma

Quote:
The poll findings include broader good news. Even as voters say the economy continues to get worse, and as the state faces a massive budget deficit next year, Ohio isn't succumbing to tea-party extremism.

Sensibly, most of the Ohioans who were polled understand that the state will have to balance its budget with a combination of spending cuts and tax increases rather than rely on either approach alone. At the very least, this is not the time for political schemes that would make Ohio's tax system less efficient, balanced, and fair, such as Mr. Kasich's proposed phaseout of the state income tax.

"Ruddy overweight working people with neck veins bulging"
Describes every union worker I know on a picket line.

"are retired or just plain bored people to whom the free bus ride, or the cheap buffet dinner that often comes with the faux protests looks pretty good."
wolfman aren't you retired? I bet you're no stranger to Old Country Buffet.

"Not to mention the spiffs, the free tote bag of goodies -- chocolates, coupons, a neat little pen light key ring. You can dig through this nickel-dime..." They need to save money. They probably all have American cars which burn through $3 gallon gas faster than Michael Moore through a Las Vegas Buffet.

"Boucher's attendees had little talent, and not even a gnat's ass worth of understanding of the issue." You want to see little talent look at what LA is producing that they claim are "musicians" and "actors".
