The Republican Tea Party

a2a_linkname=”TI&S: The Republican Tea Party”;a2a_linkurl=”http://tinyurl.com/cmyous”;

Notice — This one is long, but I think you will enjoy the laughs unless you’re a Republican. Then you may not find the humor in it. J

Disclaimer — Before I even start this one I must ask some of you reading this to please excuse my play on certain words and phrases, but I can’t resist this one. I will be as cautious as possible. For those who don’t know what I’m referring to don’t worry about it.

Let’s begin…

*I’m walking to the podium now for the TI&S Press Conference regarding the activities going on today with the so-called Republican Tea Party.*

Republican T-Bagging

Who’s bright ideas was this and what in the Hell were they thinking?

If you’re going to have a protest that you’re attempting to reference history there has to be a connection, truth in your reference. I will spare the American history lesson, but to summarize the revolt that is known as the Boston Tea Party that occurred in 1773 you got to consider the conditions that sparked that revolt. The phrase many of you’ve heard of before, taxation WITHOUT Representation was at the heart of this protest.

What the Republican Party is doing is the opposite and still confuses me why this?

Taxation with Representation

Alright let’s have a three minute lesson about basic American History. The original premise of the Boston Tea Party was the right for our own representatives to make decisions about our Tax policies not Great Britain.

Now I know this is difficult for the organizers to fully comprehend, but let me help you understand it better. You see back in the 1970’s there was a video by Schoolhouse Rock called “No More Kings” that really helped me understand the Boston Tea Party maybe you can have this video ran on FOX News.

Silly Scare Tactics

The ridiculous cry of socialist doesn’t fit. Do you realize how you participate in the dreaded socialism? No you probably don’t, because you’re grabbing hold to the claims of a delusional Right-Wing Radio Talk Show Host and the equally erratic hosts on FOX News to base you claims of Socialism, Liberals, Fascism and Marxism.

So I thought that I help you out on this one.

Who in the crowd today knows the definition of socialism?

No. One at a time.

OK big guy in the back… Um that’s incorrect.

Yes, you with the cheese sandwich… WHAT! No the Bible has nothing to do with this.

Let me help you out.

Socialism is a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. So to offer a real-life definition for you, it’s like the program you as taxpayers contribute to and will participate in when you retire; Social Security, Medicare. So for those with parents of retirement age, this means your momma is a socialist.

If you disagree with me ask your Republican member of Congress to publicly denounce Medicare or Social Security and let’s see what happens.

Alright, next question. Who can tell me what is liberalism?

Um Sir, there’s no need to curse. Calm down. OK, you can call me uppity, but you’re too scared to say the rest. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, please sit down.

Yes you, the gentleman the corner with the stuffed animal in your hand. Do you know the answer?

OK, someone who hasn’t been drinking or indoctrinated by Rush Limbaugh and FOX News.

Alright the older lady with the t-shirt on.

I thought I recognized you. NO, the President is not an Arab. Ma’am, please take your medicine.

Anyone else…

<Big Sigh> My goodness, this is ridiculous. Seriously, how did you graduate?

Liberalism is a political or social philosophy advocating the freedom of the individual. That sounds like something like various arguments we’ve heard from Republicans. A nonviolent modification of political, social, or economic institutions to assure unrestricted development in all spheres of human endeavor, and governmental guarantees of individual rights and civil liberties. Hmmm… Where have we seen this before?

So since this is suppose to be a peaceful protest of an economic institution [IRS] doesn’t this mean you all are Liberals? Hey, I’m just looking at the definition of the word and comparing it to your actions and words. Don’t get mad at me.

The Fringe of Sanity

Each time someone makes the ridiculous notion that has been proven false by the state of Hawaii of the citizenship of the President it weakens the credibility of your entire group. If you really want to get at the heart of your fear I can, but I don’t think you want to go there.

Republican Taxusations

What you fail to understand about President Obama’s tax plan is beyond me, because I can’t see how it can be said more elementary than it has already been said. Let’s see if we can make it so easy that even Joe the Plumber can understand it.

  • Click Here to see the Tax Policy Center’s 2008 Comparison of Obama & McCain’s Tax Proposals and decides if your accusations prove to be accurate of President Obama.
  • Click Here to view FactCheck.org’s research of then Presidential Candidates Obama & McCain tax plans.
  • Chick Here to view The White House overview of President Obama’s tax agenda.

If you can read and comprehend English you can understand this. The claim of President Obama raising taxes are false and the carryover from the McCain Campaign. The lie has been proven false by factcheck.org. Your ‘outrage’ is foolish at best unless everyone protesting makes $250,001.00 or more a year. If so, I can understand your outrage.

Republican T-Bagging

I guess we’ll see who’s standing over whom when this over. My guess is that this is going to backfire, but let’s wait to see who’s going to be on their knees.

I’m trying to hold back, but I think I’m gonna… talk about the people at the center of this one. Oh tell me it isn’t so, Sen. David Vitter, Newt Gingrich and Dick Army. 😀 Oh this is too good. This should help me reach the climax of this blog post. But I can’t forget the media mouthpieces for the T-Bagging with FOX News’ Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity’s excitement over the event.

Perhaps the biggest Nut of them all comes from Neil Cavuto’s defense of FOX News covering the spectacle. “We are going to be right in the middle of these tea baggers because at FOX we do not pick and choose these rallies and protests. We were there for the Million Man March”.

OH REALLY. FOX News was there in Washington DC October 16, 1995 for the Million Man March. You’re making this too easy, but since I like kicking a man when he’s down lets see what a simple Google search comes up with shall we.

WHAT! FOX News has been in operations since October 7, 1996. (Source) How can that be, that means either the Newscorp website is wrong or you do not have a proper understanding of time. You see that was practically a year before you came on the air. It’s OK, my 4 year old son made the same mistake.

Final Analysis

I know you all are upset. You feel used. During the last election McCain/Palin basically t-bagged their morals for political gain and conservatives got screwed again. This demonstration is entertaining, because I’ve enjoyed myself. Listen, I only want you all to get off your knees and stand-up. Stop falling for the same old tricks. Who’s leading you?

Do you understand exactly what you are protesting and from whom are to blame for the tax increases? I don’t believe you do, because if you did you all would be Democrats.

Conservative Charlie Brown Moment Side-Note

As many conservative bloggers are still wiping the Easter egg off of your face from this past weekend when they called President Obama weak and a pantywaist I hope you rethink your involvement or cover of your latest Charlie Brown moment. Maybe this time you’ll be able to actually kick the football, since President Obama snatched the football away by ordering the Navy Snipers to shoot to kill the Somali Pirates.

President Obama gave you a clear hint between him and the Republican paper leaders, “I like to know what I’m talking about before I speak.”

Its OK Charlie Brown at least you tried.

Oh don’t bother him Snoopy, Charlie Brown’s upset right now. Stop laughing Woodstock.

Who’s Participating

Besides the misinformed Republican lawmakers and governors have signed on to speak at local events so you’ll know the individuals who’s promoting this to bring them into question.

  • Former Rep. David Davis (R-TN)
  • Representatives from Sen. Bob Corker’s (R-TN) office
  • Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT)
  • Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT)
  • Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-KS)
  • Representative from Rep. Sam Graves’ (R-MO) office
  • Rep. John Fleming (R-LA)
  • Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL)
  • Rep. Bob Latta (R-OH)
  • Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ)
  • Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ)
  • Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC)
  • Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL)
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
  • Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC)
  • Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT)
  • Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA)
  • Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL)

Let’s hope this stunt doesn’t prove true and you’re caught on your knees. That’s not a sight I want to see, but enjoy your Tea bagging.

  1. LOL!

    They can’t even get the American history part right.
    But you know how they are, it’s not about taxation without representation, it’s about taxation, period.

    It never ceases to amaze me how these shallow snapperheads manage to convince themselves that all our tax money is somehow “theirs”. It’s mine too, and yours. And we want it spent on the right things.
    Being a small businessman, I pay more taxes than most of those clowns ever have or ever will.
    Most of them probably can’t even spell Massachusetts.

    But hey, it certainly isn’t the first time they’ve made complete and total fools of themselves. Thankfully we can be assured it won’t be the last.

    The measures the President has undertaken are working. The economy is turning around and doing so at a rate consistent with my prediction of six months to one year for recovery.
    Everything is going to be fine and that’s the thing that bothers these clucks the most. They failed, we will succeed. And it’s eating them up to see their chances of ever being in power again erode even further with each passing day.

    Time for a cup of tea.

    😉

  2. It appears that the Republicans and Fox News does not believe that the way to have change is through the ballot box and elections, How long will it be that guys like Glen Beck will be calling for a uprising to overthrow the Gov’t.
    These people are the most Anti-American people the World has ever seen.
    Fox News and the Right Wing Radio Wacko’s are truly putting this country and the world in peril.

  3. Very well said, Larry.

    Fortunately, the new and improved “Homeland Security” has their eye on such traitorous vermin.
    😉

    We could throw the Republicans in the harbor and keep the tea.
    The stuff is getting expensive.

  4. *sips tea* Thanks for putting the information out there. All we need now is for Newt, Sean and a few others to be called publicly on their appalling behavior. It is time for those bad children to be sent to the corner until they learn how to behave.

  5. A lot going on here … wow … so I can only touch it with snipets.

    To partisan Republicans, please answer the question you asked not all that long ago to others ….. Why do you hate America so much?

    Although the Tea Party was a partisan-sponsored event, at least they have the right to do so in this country.

    I love Politifact for truth AND I wish consequences …. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/

    Relax … good news may be on the horizon … Texas threatening to secede. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/04/15/governor-says-texans-want-secede-union-probably-wont/

    More on Republican socialism …. http://afrankangle.wordpress.com/2009/02/18/on-republican-socialism/ … which is way they changed to using Fascism.

    Thank you SchoolHouse Rock and Looney Tunes.

  6. I don’t have any problems with what the tea partiers are doing in principle (protesting) — we certainly didn’t have any shortage of it during the last eight years. I also agree with their displeasure over big spending, since long-term deficits will lead to higher taxes in the future.

    Buuuuuut, we have put off on making several important changes in regulation, health care, energy, transportation, education, etc. etc. for decades. That’s why it’s so expensive to start fixing it now. Important decisions have to be made, we will all have to suck it up and pay higher taxes in the future, but at least we won’t know that another economic catastrophe will result from Obama’s policies.

    If anything, the way Bush rolled over Congress during his terms was more like King George III than George Washington. At least Obama has been listening to the other side; it just so happens that Republicans got the fundamentals wrong on many counts.
