Wa! Wa! Wa! Wa! Are you talking about the Tea Party or the Democratic Party. The Democrats and Republicans have spent us into this miss and they deserve the Tea Party! God bless them and may they be encouraged to put pressure on Reid and Pelosi and the rest of those bozos!

You may hate certain politicians but the actions of them will and can hurt people, real human beings. For this reckless group, the tea party to threaten world wide suffering with a default, in which millions of innocent human beings may have suffered, is evil in my opinion.

You say that as if there were a difference between the Tea Party and Republicans but then you say...


God bless them and may they be encouraged to put pressure on Reid and Pelosi and the rest of those bozos!


Why Pelosi and not Boehner who is actually in charge over there?

And Obama threatening taxpayers withholding their own money for Social Security? Your argument has no legs.
it is nice to see Our President threaten its' own people.

edit on 8/2/2011 by mugger because: (no reason given)


May I ask when that took place? I do not recall the president threatening me with anything, let alone withholding checks. I am not saying it did not actually happen, I just missed that myself. Can you elucidate?

The Tea Party is anti-democratic and guilty of abuse of power? You mean like when the President and the Democrat Party forced through Obamacare without allowing it to be read? I have no problem with people disagreeing politically but the recent attacks on the Tea Party comparing members to Islamic terrorists and calling them unAmerican are ridiculous. If your only argument is ad-hominin attacks you have no argument.


Actually that was voted on after months and months of debate but do not let reality or facts get in the way of trying to defend the Teabaggers by simply saying "But look over there at that other thing someone else might have done."

Really going to hurt when the members of the NWO are running that "machine" and could care less about the people around the globe. Heck, that one world government wants to get rid of most of us. Unless you are on that short list of people who get to live, better hope that NWO doesn't become reality to quickly.



On the short list?

Hell, I am one of the ones making the short list, I am just trying to figure out if any of you lot are keepers...so far, I got nothin...

Oh Good GRIEF!!


Quit blaming the blasted MESSENGER!

The problem is ONE HUNDRED YEARS of CORRUPT Politicians for crying out loud.

Now some American voters FINALLY wake up and realize they are being systematically raped and they start screaming.

As usual the RAPE victim gets blamed for not bending over far enough and fast enough and daring to call it rape!

Do you Homework! All of them are crooks!
The 50 Richest Members of Congress

Here is an example:
Rosa DeLauro (D ct) has been shoving Monsanto's Dream Bill into Congress for close to a decade. Greenpeace caught her Hubby, Stan Greenberg, taking big bucks from MONSANTO as a "Consultant" over in the UK


Now FOLLOW THE MONEY!


....But the entry that really sent my Democratic strategist friend ballistic was the one for Rep. Rosa DeLauro, the Connecticut Democrat. La Rosa--tied for #48 on the Richest list--gets the lion's share of her wealth from her husband--Clintonista pollster and campaign strategist Stan Greenberg. Says Roll Call, "DeLauro's primary asset is a 67-percent stake in Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research Inc., a Washington-based firm run by her husband, Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg. Her share in the company nets the Representative $5 million to $25 million. She has a partial stake in two other polling/consulting firms. The first is Greenberg Research, of which she and her husband own 100 percent, and Sun Surveys, in which she owns a 60 percent stake. Neither of these is as lucrative as Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, however."

My bud the political warhorse snorted,"Hell, she first ran for Congress she didn't have a dime--I was one of her biggest contributors. And Stan Greenberg, who worked for me back when he was starting out, used to have holes in his socks!" Noting that Congressional wealth is usually closer to the higher than to the lower estimates on the disclosure forms, my dour Democrat gasped, "That means they're making around $50 million! These people shouldn't be running Democratic campaigns!"

So, if you want to know why the national Democrats seem, in this campaign, to have a tin ear where touching the hearts and minds of the working stiffs is concerned, think about this: the three partners in the Democracy Corps--Greenberg, James Carville, and Kerry's chief message-shaper Bob Shrum--are all multimillionaires. And yet their counsel--proferred in an endless series of free Democracy Corps memos distributed to the party elite well before and during the presidential primaries, whose content (or lack of it) they helped shape--is taken as gospel by Democratic liberals feverish for victory. Well, as the old Texas populist Maury Maverick Jr. used to say, "a liberal is a power junkie without the power."

So looks like Greenburg's company is a great way to funnel bribes to the DEMOCRAT, Rosa DeLauro


Welcome to the real world of politics.

You could do the search yourself. but here it is

Obama's not bluffing: Social Security and military checks are in danger

REID: No Social Security Checks, Military Pay, Vet. Benefits ..

UTUBE: Alert! - Obama 'Can't Guarantee Social Security, Military Checks ...
www.youtube.com...


The elderly in my area have been frightened half to death. After that cruel Stunt on Obama's part he deserves nothing but CONTEMPT! Especially since SS is FUNDED and he can easily see checks are cut since he has the power to fund "essential" government services.

NO U.S. BUDGET Congressional Research Report: www.fas.org...

Or you could be honest about it. I asked when Obama threatened people with the prospect of not receiving their SS checks. Not one of your links supports that. I did not need to do a search for it because I already looked into this claim and Obama never threatened anyone.
The sticker on my car battery explaining that it could explode if overloaded is a warning, not a threat. Obama was not the one holding anyone's checks hostage and he never threatened anyone that they would not get them. He did inform them that if this was not resolved, they may not get them. Big difference.

Apparently you know nothing about them. A return to Constitutional law. Every American should be supporting them. They are doing exactly as they promised when running for office. To oppose big government, reign in spending and give the power back to the people. They are doing EXACTLY what their constituents wanted them to. If you villainize them, you villainize their constituents who are American citizens, who by the way, DO have a say in how this country is run! To take a stance that they are not patriots or are evil is to call the Americans who elected them the same.

As I did in another forum, step back and do a little research about all three parties. Not just what they claim they stand for, but what have they supported? I think you just might find that the ONLY party that has stuck to their principals and what they were elected to do is the Tea Party.

And for sticking to their principles the Tea Party is being smeared with the -terrorist- label.
It won't work. They tried labeling them racists in November 2010. It failed.

Long live the Tea Party!
Taxed
Enough
Already

Reduce the size of the U.S. government.
Fire the TSA and replace them a private security company.
Abolish the EPA. That would save us $10 Billion.
Repeal ObamaCare.

What is the difference from the government running everything [ communism] than a small group of oligarchs
[ capitalism] running everything.



One is government, one isn't. I'll let you figure out which is which.

It's near impossible (but not completely so) to avoid government, but not corporations. Don't have to do business with them if you don't want to.


If they control all the physical variables and natural resources...you do.


Correction: if "they" have control of the resources I want then I do. The key there is to not give them control of my stuff.

It all really depends on how bad I want what they have, whether or not I can find an alternate source of it, and how much I'm willing to beg - or how hard headed I am. I'm pretty hard headed, and can get by with quite a bit less than folks think they need. I've learned to distinguish between needs and wants, and did away with all of my credit 15 or 16 years ago. I don't want anything bad enough to beg or bum it.

Like the song says, "I ain't askin' nobody for nuthin' - if I can't git it on my own.
If you don't like the way I'm livin' just leave this long-haired country boy alone."

And there you have it.

They were voted in by a majority of the voting populace and they never abused the system like the Republicans are doing now. That’s the point of my OP.

They NEVER threatened to destabilize the economic system if they didn’t get their way.

ha!! oh yeah, they were voted in from all those "honest elections" of liberal democrats. Gerrymander districts to get blacks elected. Voter fraud through ACORN and intimidation by the new black panthers....yeah....really representative of the majority of Americans...

It's amazing how many people are against the banker elite and rich corporations, yet when the perfect opportunity comes to give them all the finger, they are against it and label the Tea Party as the enemy. Simply blows my mind. Of course that is a typical liberal, I am against it until I am for it. Remember John Kerry? Yup, no different. It's ok to run your mouth until the reality of getting what you want might actually have an impact your lifestyle, then it's a different story! As long as it doesn't affect you, you are all for it!

You know who's anti-democratic in America and abuses their power?

Unions.

How come in America if you are in a Union, you can't pick your Union Steward to represent you in the Union?

In Amerika, Union Presidents have "Executive Power" and THEY decide who THEY want to be the Union Stewards.

Ain't nothing Democratic about that.

Wow, that's pretty nervy of you to assume you are on the short list and everyone else here are expendable, but then that is the perfect description of a typical lib environmentalist who thinks everyone else is a uesless eater but themself. Might you be on Soros payroll ?
