It’s Time To Party!

The Failed Anti-Capitalism Protest

As all the Tea Party goers and organizers know, these protests were organized and financed by individuals who volunteered to get them started in each state.

Fox News is covering them, the local media in each state that has had one has covered them, but no national media outlet has.  I wonder why?  Some of them have been very huge.  5,000 in Cincinnatti to name one.  Each and every state is having one and most all of them more than one city.

This goes to show the bias in the media.  The AIG protest was covered but wasn’t ANY where near the numbers that the Tea Parties turn out have been.

Tea Party Goers Political Enemies?

Tea Party terrorists?  

Stephen Gordon has obtained a new report from the Department of Homeland Security issued just in time for Wednesday’s Tea Party protests and entitled, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Environment Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

This DHS report warns of the terrorist threat from those who “are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

Mark Krikorian, David Boaz and Antonin Scalia are urged to turn themselves in at the nearest FEMA detention center.

UPDATE: Michael Merritt:

It gives the impression, undeserved or not, that the Obama administration is becoming a left-wing incarnation of the Richard Nixon administration, with lists of political enemies and wiretaps at the headquarters of their opponents.

Tea Party is a Political MOVEMENT

tea-party

There has been a false perception of the Tea Parties from the left.  They think the people participating are a  bunch of Republican’s “whining” about Obama.  They are wrong!  In Andrea Tantaros column on the Fox Forum:

A recent FOX News poll found that 47 percent of respondents were willing to participate in a Tax Day Tea Party, along with 29 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of independents. By April 15th, organizers hope to have a database filled with a quarter of a million names representing a broad spectrum of political affiliations.

The message is simple: repeal the pork, cut taxes and cut spending. But there is much more at stake than the money. The impact these actions will have on our culture is key. Massive government control is a clear threat to our liberties and our values of American exceptionalism. The argument from Tax Day to Election Day 2010 should be focused on helping voters connect the dots, not only about why we can’t afford to spend money we don’t have or why we can’t trust Washington, but also about how spending and borrowing will cause irreversible damage to our union and put us on a slippery slope toward a European model of stagnate economies, welfare states and mediocrity. Plainly put: the spending and borrowing threatens our greatness. 

The fundamental difference between tea totalers and those who are drinking the leftist Kool-Aid is how they view decision-making. The Kool-Aid clan believes that government is better equipped to make choices than a country’s citizens, that they are entitled to our earnings, and that what we get back is simply a giveaway. They feel they know best how to spend it, not us, and simply don’t trust us if left to our own devices.

Maybe the logic behind liberals belief that the government needs to take care of them, is nothing more than they CAN’T make decisions for themselves.  Why not? 

 The education system teaches this and liberal politicians have feed upon it for their own greed.  It has created what I call “Generation Entitlement”.  It has created complacency and people who are not willing to  make their own decisions, even to the extent that some can’t make their own decisions, they don’t know how.

As far as the “rich” it just pure laziness on liberals part they think the pursuit of happiness and freedom means ‘give me’, they don’t believe it is hard work that made the “rich” people … well rich.  They are like children who cry “not fair”! boo-hoo
