"Former FreedomWorks chairman Dick Armey revealed that the Tea Party group paid Glenn Beck about $1 million to say "nice things" about the group on his radio show, and that it got a negative return on that investment, in an interview Friday — with the liberal group Media Matters, of all places. It's the latest strange revelation in the FreedomWorks civil war. Armey reportedly tried to stage an armed coup last fall, but his reign didn't last long, and donor Richard J. Stephenson agreed to pay Armey $400,000 a year for 20 years to go away. Apparently that didn't come with a non-disparagement clause."

The Tea Party's War on Itself Now Includes a Literal Armed Rebellion
http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/12/tea-partys-war-itself-no...

Quote from article:
"In addition to just being plain scary — the incident happened just two weeks after a man had been shot trying to break into the Family Research Council, another conservative lobbying group — the tale of Armey and the gun-wielding suspensions also raises questions about just who is really running the Tea Party movement. FreedomWorks has long portrayed itself as a grassroots organization, yet the donation shows how it's really become a handful of wealthy individuals who are calling the shots for these groups. The man behind the pledge, Illinois millionaire Richard Stephenson, gave more than $12 million to FreedomWorks donations before this election cycle, funneling the money through two dummy corporations set up just one day apart in Tennessee."

wasting $821 BILLION -to bring folks out of poverty resulted in 9.4 MILLION ADDITIONAL citizens in poverty !?
SantaObbamma's $494 BILLION Stimulus Law-did not save or create the 3.5 MILLION jobs he and Demonrats lied about.
It didn't create or save ONE JOB !
Obozo's Auto/ Union Bailout-cost 115,00 UAW members their jobs, cost 7,000 retired Delphi employees their retirement monies, sold Chrysler to Fiat & thieving unions without compensation , dissolved Mercury, Saturn, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile manufacturers, and closed hundreds of dealerships costing 300,000 employees their jobs !

So, what do moronic Dims want more of ?!

Another TRILLION in additional taxes to continue buying votes, making up losses from Fannie & Freddie to European banks invested in them, more programs like "cash for clinkers", and 8+% unemployment for as far as the eye can see !

So, is it any wonder imbeciles vote stupid ...when they are ?!

Sheep to the slaughter! Now I don't know what would be more revealing. These articles are damning. For all of the Tea Party believers, well, the party is over long ago. Its been co-opted by the wealthy plutocrats, the 1% who don't want their taxes raised no matter what or how much it costs or how much it affects us, the 99%. What you Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh fans have to realize is YOU will never be in this group. I realize all this phony expensive right wing programing is inciting and entertaining but that's where it ends. You've been had, they won again! Read the following. History repeats itself. http://www.transdiffusion.org/radio/features/hitlers_radio

Now what I want to know does this type of corruption filter down to our local radio? I know of one "host" who appears to get free beds, use of lease autos, and possibly other free beenies for promoting their products. Does he report this to the IRS? How far does this behavior go?

Facts - I don't get a bed, autos, or other products for free as you say. I get paid to endorse Sleep Number, Dave White, Computer Renaissance, Quality Overhead, etc etc. Because I am paid through my paycheck the IRS gets it's cut before I even see my take home. You can post your apology/correction below for saying that you "know" of one host, unless of course you didn't mean me which is highly unlikely.

Did you ever profit from selling Temperance GOLD like that other GOOF? I do remember the parade of "painted thinktank mobiles coming to Toledo to give us their "expert opinions" of what this country needs. Hahahahaaaa he-he-he-he-heeeee gasp...gasp (snort)! OMG!!! I think....!GASP!.... I just can't take this stupidity anymore! It's sooooo transparent.

Well now back to the discussion.....surely the "HOST" remembers these clown buses of the last few years. Did it ever occur to him where all this money was coming from?

Oh my gosh I forgot about David Kay Jeweler in Temperance, Mi. The interesting thing about all of these endorsements is that they are voluntary on the part of the clients because they know there is an audience listening in the morning to a guy with only a high school education, and no union contract. It's all free market. I do a service, they pay me for that service, that government takes a piece of the action.

Hey Wolfie-Poo.

How's it feel to know that, not only do people ASK Fred's opinion, some companies actually PAY FRED to give his opinion about their products.

Meanwhile, you sit in your mommy's basement, spreading your cheeks for your Union owners, and say "Thank you sir, may I have another" when your Dimocrap owners spank you.

NOBODY gives a flying F&^K what you think and nobody would bother asking for your lame-ass, MoveOn.org supplied "opinion" unless they had the chance to BEAT IT OUT OF YOU.

You're a loser, everybody knows it and we all make fun of how cluelessly neutered you are.

Now go ask your wife to take your balls out of her purse and maybe you can put them on for a while.

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

Henry Ford et al. , to build up Detroit.
Only to see it dry up faster than a worm on a hot blacktop driveway by Demonrats , like you ?

Hey stupid !
How long did it take a Republican , like John Rockefeller et al. , to build up Cleveland.
Only to see it die a slow miserable death under Demonrat leadership you adore, thereafter ?

Hey stupid.
How long did it take Republican's, like Michael Owens, et al., to build up Toledo.
Only to see everything in it DIE, a miserable liberal Demonrat death by the same gaggle of ignoramus, you vote for ?!?

You are so godforsaken stupid, you do not have the capabilities to see destruction before your own eyes and some how you say "it's all good under Obozo".

When, every statistic in the World, was GREAT, under GW ?!

The Great Statistic I truly love about GW, was his putting together a coalition 0f 44 Nations, to fight in Iraq & Afghanistan.
Something that was never, ever, thought of let alone DONE !

That's, what a real Commander In Chief , does.
Not run from 4 murders Benghazi, to go fund raising in Vegas, with other coke heads moron !!!!

Bush took office: unemployment 4.2%.
Bush left office: unemployment 7.8%. Peaked in October of 2009 at 10.0%.
Latest unemployment: 7.8%.

Bush took office: Dow Jones 10,578.24.

Today's closing: Dow Jones 13,384.29.

Bush left office: NASDAQ 1440.86
Today's closing: NASDAQ 3098.18

Finally, I'm glad that you're so proud of those two wars! They helped America SO MUCH!! Thousands of Americans lost their lives, and even W admitted (FINALLY) that there were NO WMD's in Iraq after all!!
I must add that I hold in highest regards the young American men and women in the armed services who are called to duty. I have nothing but the greatest admiration for what they do to protect us. However, I want them to only fight in wars which have a specific purpose, much as did the original war against Iraq fought under Bush #41!
BTW -- How many troops were sent from that giant Bush #43 coalition of which you are so proud? What per cent of the forces were American, British, or highly paid mercenaries?

Demonrats, took over the Senate and everything great or good STOPPED !!!

REMEMBER STUPID-all Laws, including taxation are from Congress !
REMEMBER STUPID-the President-is foremost Commander In Chief !

After 2006, the tax / waste/ regulate jobs to death by Demonrats BEGAN & the fit hit the shan and our economy commenced to slowly but surely, go into a spiral it's yet to recover from.

GW-56 straight months of positive economic growth after 9 / 11 !
GW-had 55 straight months of positive jobs growth after 9 / 11 !
GW-had gas at an average $1.82 over 8 years !
GW-home values the Highest in recorded American History. Blacks home ownership was the Highest ever. Not now !
GW-American's had the Highest net worth in all of recorded American History.
GW-winning two wars with 44 Nation coalitions -unheard of in all of Man's History.

SanataObbamma-dog eating, coke head, heathen from Chicago-has NOTHING on GW, and never will except, how to dismantle a once prosperous and thriving Nation, morons have forgotten !!!

( A complete tool uses the stock markets as 3 of his 4 arguments for continued job killing, net worth killing, home value killing by Ovomit- as compared to GW's , excellent reign before Demonrats, fouled up the Nation ?!
Desperation from psychotic sycophants who know nothing about economics but what they are lied to by Dan Rather, et al. .)

Move to China comrade, I hear fricasseed dog is tasty-of course, I heard this from who you voted for as "President".

You just can't stand the truth!

Just keep using in appropriate language and hoping that makes your point! (And to think, some right-wingers are upset because I use Romney's given first name of Willard when I refer to him.)

more servicemen in Afghanistan in 3.9 years VS GW's loss ?!

Ovomit-lost 1,629-in 4 years.
GW-lost 509- in 8 years ?!

What a parameter your brain has chose in comparing Obozo's killing more and more of our "chillen" ?
God-you are one vapid heathen lying soul....

high above 15,500...then maybe, you can sing Great Songs around the campfire, about this job killing, net worth killing, home value killing, gas above $3.55 for his entire reign, 8+% unemployment for his entire term, America hating liar then.

Maybe, but it will not ever, happen.!
2013-will see continued STAGNATION, from the jackass you voted for !!

I trust you're feeling GRRRRRREAT !!!

Total American deaths in Iraq: 4488.
Total American deaths since "Mission Accomplished" was declared: 4347.
Total American deaths in Iraq under Obama: 257.
All of these figures include non-combat deaths.

BTW -- I never have called you stupid. I think that you're extremely ideological and a Bush apologist. Do you not understand that when you sprinkle all of your invective-laden language throughout your posts, some people just stop reading them? Or are you using nasty references to discourage others from criticizing you? WOW! You are bitter!

There is one more BIG difference between the two wars. The reason for the Iraq war has been proved to be fallacious. However, Al Qaeda admitted that they trained for 9/11 in Afghanistan with the full support of the government of that time when Afghanistan was under Taliban control.

imbecile could post so, I didn't read one word of it.

Keep flailing away though, GW-will be considered by real Historian's, 180 degrees different than what you,Dan Rather, and all of the other radical liars you run with will.

Why ?

Because, once fed a lie repetitiously, you buy it hook, line, sinker, and the whole POLE !!!
THINK:Goebbels and Machiavelli, were right !

Oh, did you hear a dog eating, coke head, lying puke from Chicago, mention that, "the private sector is doing fine " , did you ?!

Laughing so hard , my side is hurting......

The Libtard LIE "For eight years we lost jobs under Bush." and other damn lies like .

and the TRUTH using data from the exact same United States Bureau Of Labor Statics Website that claims Barr Obama now has 7.8% unemployment:
(FYI - YOU can look at these exact same government supplied data at data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000.)

Bush's HIGHEST unemployment rate between January of 2001 and December of 2008 was 7.3% in December of 2008, the month before American business knew a commie pinko was going to take over.

Bush's LOWEST unemployment between January of 2001 and December of 2008 was 4.2% in January of 2001 and Bush AVERAGED 5.27% between January of 2001 and December of 2008.

Now compare Obimbo to Bush using the EXACT SAME SOURCE FOR INFORMATION. (That means comparing apples to apples)

Obimbo's HIGHEST unemployment rate between January of 2009 and today (Sep-5-2012) was 10% in October of 2009. Obimbos LOWEST unemployment rate was for January of 2009 THE LAST 10 DAYS WHEN HE TOOK OFFICE FROM BUSH. That rate was 7.8% and Obimbo AVERAGED 9.06% between January 2009 and today (Sep-5-2012)
So it looks like you just lap up the Obama and DNC supplied LIES without thinking for yourself.

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

Most of these "clunkers" were good usable used autos. But they were deliberately DESTROYED AT OBAMA'S DIRECTION. Good usable autos that could have been GIVEN TO POOR PEOPLE. [Can just ONE Democrat explain to me why these cars were destroyed?????]

[See you have to break this down so idiots can grasp the basics...]

But autos that could have been GIVEN TO POOR PEOPLE, were deliberately destroyed - because the entire scheme was to get people who could already afford new cars, but were holding on to their money - to buy NEW UNION-MADE AUTOS, and get rid of all the used cars possible, so that poor people - who couldn't afford new cars - WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO AFFORD ANY CARS AT ALL.

Again (breaking this down for the idiot population) -- if Obama cared about poor people, he would have given all the drivable used cars turned in for the free $4,000 he gave to middle and upper middle class voters - TO POOR PEOPLE.

Moral of the story of cash for "clunkers": OBAMA DOESN'T GIVE A RIP FOR POOR PEOPLE. As a matter of fact, a poor Wendy's or K-Mart or Walmart worker (who the Dems claim to care about) had part of their tax dollars taken from their meager paychecks to finance new cars for workers FAR BETTER OFF than they are. In other words, cash for "clunkers" was reverse Robin Hood - taking from the poor to give to the well off. BO bought a lot of union votes with that one insane idea.

Again...

OBAMA DOESN'T GIVE A RIP FOR THE POOR.

Ovomit-has all the human compassion of a hyena....

Yahoo news:
Whoops—'Cash for Clunkers' Actually Hurt the Environment

The fruits of MY labor are not a social commodity.

Thanks for posting it. Will be forwarding it to my e-mail list. I could never understand, during the election campaign, why Romney didn't highlight the damage this one program created. MR just seemed scared to death of calling BO out on ANY of BO's major mistakes. Oh well, a topic for another dfay.

And just think, Obama doesn't have to pay the dinosaur media a dime to say nice things about him!

That, costs money.
And, the slobbering they do creates a slippery mess that trial attorney's love.
So, all in all it's a wash economically....

Who cares? It's not like GB has to be impartial or anything he's a commentator not a reporter. That's what libs like you don't get, commentors are supposed to have an opinion and be biased, so.... people are then fully allowed to try to influence that opinion however way they see fit because no impartiality is assumed.

MikeyA

By GW do you mean this idiot?(the one on the left)
Simple, Free Image and File Hosting at MediaFire

The photo you used, of course, is from Reagan's Bedtime for Bonzo movie. Bonzo was a monkey. Bush's picture is Photoshopped over Bonzo's body. I have learned from liberals that anytime you refer to monkeys, you are inferring blacks and that is racist. Just ask Brian Wilson, former WSPD personality.

$21 TRILLION in real American's net worth vaporized in Obozo's tenure, it also loves 8+% unemployment for 45 months straight, and wasting $6 TRILLION on nothing.
Eat your peas sissy.

Mental cases like this zero are happiest, when their stupidity greatly exceeds their public unionized edification.
Try to get out of your straightjacket.

I have always heard that mental cases are quite content with their idiocy...this puke eater proves it absolutely .
No sharp objects near it.

Have a fine day in the rubber room moron.
Hey, your drool is dribbling from your pie hole....psycho.

Carrie are you related to LibsCanBlowMe? You sure seem to write similar. Maybe you are just another WSPD dittohead misled by the secretly paid corporate shills. I think the two of you need a timeout to gather your senses before both of you do the Jim Jones. Please review the original theme of this thread, its hard to dispute.

The United States is like a great ship of fools. The huge boat doesn't turn on a dime. What has happened here took time, decades of greed and mismanagement. To blame one president is just plain foolish. Willard has a point. Bush involved us in two huge expensive wars chasing one hundred al-Qaeda. Then we had the spectacle of the paid off Glenn Beck shill rallies supporting all this nonsense. What should have been a police action turned into this huge drain on our economy. Then Bush doesn't pay for the wars and puts it on the credit card, in fact giving tax breaks to those who could have contributed to this war and pay their fair share. Bush continued to ruin the economy with a non competitive Medicare drug plan. While the distraction of these wars raged on we lost 50,000 manufacturing plants mostly shipped overseas leaving us dependent on a phony housing market. When Bush finally left office we were losing 700,000 jobs a month. So the president takes office with this big huge smelly pile of crap in front of him. What would you have done to dig us out?

Although NOBODY gives a crap about your mindless, drooling excuse for "opinions", at least THIS latest post was not spoon fed to you by your owners at MoveOn.Org, the Daily Show, MSNBC, your Union Shop Steward or Comedy Central.

Now if only people would actually care what you say someday you might actually be worth the powder to blow you up.

TTFN

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

Corrupt union officials are bit players to the grand theft on Wall Street and our banking system. Only the kool aid drinkin Jim Jones fan club would bring up such non sense. Look at the big picture stop looking at the little people. The Corporate Welfare Queens are on Wall Street fools!

liberal Demonrat, and always has been. It's in New York City, moron !!
The same folks that vote EXACTLY like you do.

Feeling better I trust....

It's obvious from that last statement that I'm dealing with an imbecile. You have no idea what goes on around you. Good day!

what you and your kind are about.

America-destroyed by you, who you vote for, and the examples are so numerous, only a complete America hating fool can defend them.

Thus-you, your kind, and who you vote for are responsible for AmeriKa's, demise as you are responsible for Toledo's, Detroit's, Chicago's, et al, demise.

There is no question about it.
20% of white"men", vote the D....it tells me that you 20%, are citizens who would aid and abet our foreign enemies at the drop of a hat !!!

Proof of THAT, is also numerous...want to see the evidence ?

I didn't think so....

The puppetmasters at the UAW hall have run out of talking points and links to spoon feed this troll, so the little string puppet has to end this conversation.

Once the little pawn of George Soros gets his marching orders from his handlers at 'The Daily Show' , he will be back to try and make himself feel important by vomiting up what he is told.

Wolfie, NOBODY respects you or your spoon-fed "opinions". In fact, I'll bet you couldn't find anyone on SB who would be willing to pi$$ in your head even if your hair was on fire.

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