Are You A Tea Bagger?
 
Anyone attend one of those ridiculous Tea Bag parties? Jeez, give people a tax break and they want to throw tea bags at you. FOX News had a field day with this farce. Not surprised though, FOX News is no better at reporting the truth than those reputable papers such as the Globe or the National Enquirer. What a bunch of propoganda BS.

Tea bagging can mean a couple things. Some not nice.

I know quite a few teabaggers but not the kind you are referring to.

Well stated. I was trying to think of a way to politely explain tea bagging in this public forum.

At least I don't waste my time playing with tea bags. A complete and utter farce of a cause.

Farce of a cause? Is there anything you believe in? Should we just curl up in the corner and let the government give away billions of dollars?

And I suppose that FOX News kool-aid garbage is your cup of tea. Did you not recently receive a tax cut? What exactly is it that some people are so fearful of.

Open up and say ahhh... I have a tea bag for you... A tax break is not the answer. We don't need a tax break, we need a tax reform. 90% of the garbage in the tax code could go. This huge spend happy over bloated government has over stepped its bounds for way too long.

Are you trying to draw comparison of the present day tea bagging party to the Boston Tea Party? There is no comparison. It is an imagined cause for a party that has no leader nor platform. Unless Rush Limbuagh is your guy. Besides, you do have representation regarding tax matters.

Scuba_Dave 04-16-2009 09:10 AM

We have toll takers that male $90,000 a YEAR!!

How crazy is that??
They tried to fill a political position that had been empty for 10 years
Position paid $170k a year
If it was empty for 10 years they didn't need the person

Yes, we need a HUGE Tea Party & everyone should join in

Apparently you got your education from one of the many liberal media outlets. This wasn't about 'playing with tea bags'.

Lucky for you, there are people in this country who are speaking out. They're trying to keep the U.S.A. the way our forefathers intended it to be. All of the incredibly brave men and women who have and do fight for our freedom didn't do so to watch it become socialist.

For your own sake, do some research on your own. Instead of simply repeating what you hear from CNN, MSNBC and the other anti-American media outlets, think for yourself. You can do it. Put the Kool-Aid away for a few weeks.

At the very least, do like FIA Ranch suggested and move to France.

I try to watch a little bit of everything. I'm actually smart enough to make informed decisions using information from all sources. Yes, I did receive a tax cut. That extra $40 bucks a month really pushed me into a higher standard of living.
