  1. An 8 year old ELEPHANT dung heap, does not transform into compost in just 1 year!

    Saint Sarah, the High Priestess of racism will be the headline speaker tonight.

    She will appear with a roguish tilt to her "gimme" hat with McCain inked out, giving testimony to the fact she is still torqued that she did not remember to grab appropriate head gear when the Reds were paying the bills at Neiman's!

    Her cammo two piece swim suit, she must keep those favorable male polls up, will have a German Luger tucked discreetly into the waist band, next to her "Jesus Saves:" tat. She will wear the waist band high to conceal the list that she believes Jesus will save!

    She will have "peek-a-boo" newborn bunny fur ankle boots, which she herself designed after helicoptering in and shoving a double barrel shot gun into the warren. The boots will include 4 inch heels, again for the male poll numbers, but also so they can double as stakes should she encounter any witches when she is not traveling with her beloved "witch doctor".

    Her speech will consist of defining each of the 10 "purity" commandments of the Reds and the new tea bagging "first principles".

    The crowd will respond with full throated "Sieg Heil" although the flailing about of 1200 extra long arms may prove problematic, not to mention the deafening sound of the whistling coming from 600 sets of missing front teeth!

    The individual training courses given through Sunday are:

    1 How to build and burn a cross from a safe distance..

    2. How to sew, press and store the white sheets and hood.

    3. How to make a hangman’s noose.

    4. How to screen print Hitler’s picture onto t-shirts.

    The conference finale will consist of a day long KKK rally on Sunday so folks can showcase the skills learned.

    David Duke is rumored to be making an appearance to welcome all his willing new followers.

    These people are even worst than the GOP with their SCARE and FEAR tactics.......they want America to conform to their way of thinking....a convention of 600 people isn't what I call a great Party of thinkers.......what they are going to do is divide the GOP and create a Thrid Party that will strip the GOP of some of their followers leaving it wide open for the Democrats to continue to grow.......we accept liberals, moderates, independents, conservatives, black and white, rich and poor.....with this group and the GOP they have a set agenda and policies and if you don't follow them you don't belong........sorry but this isn't the kind of Party I want to belong to.......

    Where was the Tea Party when Bush systematically destroyed our country's finances by enacting 2 unfunded tax cuts for the rich, 2 unfunded wars and an unfunded Medicare entitlement program?

    Selective activism is very transparent.

    Oh brother, do the blind always follow the lame?

    Or is this just emulating from the hopeful loins of a few greedy hypocrites taking advantage of the News Media to whip up some weird attention to a superficial group of no-nothings?

    The tea-partiers somehow shows their political orientation and intolerance towards other groups in this democratic country. Keep saying that you're a patriot American just by holding up the American flag, and holding on to the constitution tightly doesn't make you a patriot. Keep mentioning that you're the real American doesn't make you one either. And most excitingly, only inviting some Republicans make you look like you have an agenda behind this movement. Sarah Palin is a strong supporter of Ronald Reagan, who in reality is not a fiscal conservative. If you did not invite Ron Paul, you must be missing the big picture. So tea-partiers are letting the cat out of the bag.

    Only a bunch of sour or sore losers who yell their insults and refuse to let others speak. Now they have the "Biggest Loser," Sarah coming to talk to them!

    Only in Sarah Palin's America would anyone complain about big government and big spending, then charge $550 to hear her complain about big government and big spending. Also, gotta love the Tea Party cruise, another great place to wine and dine with like minded complainers about big spending.

    How is this not treason?

    Seriously – people are facing severe conditions, and these people want to 'break' the country even further – just because the country elected a black man?? They should be ashamed of themselves.

    After the Tea-baggers were issued Doc Marten boots and treated to a racist hate-speech from Tom Tancredo, they each received complimentary head-shavings and were treated to an evening fireside reading of "Mein Kampf".

    I've watched CNN's reports on the Tea Party movement all week this week and, I have to say, I have found the reporting flat and not very insightful at all. The reports have focuses on the power of the organization to get people elected (Brown) and that it is happy to welcome or campaign against either Republicans or Democrats.

    However, CNN has failed to report on what the Tea Party movement really advocates. What does "small government" mean to them – removal of government from all aspects of our lives, or simply a reduction of social programs? What does "fiscal conservativism" mean to them – cutting social programs or all programs? What does "socialist" mean to them – is it the government's involvement in managing part of the economy that could be left to the private sector, or is it the government's involvement in anything whatsoever in the economy (e.g. public schools)? And, in light of Tancredo's opening address, what about this angry anti-immigrant, anti-multicultural sensitivity thing – does it have to do with economic xenophobia or is it simply old fashioned racism warmed over for the new century?

    C'mon CNN. We want and need in-depth reporting here. Do your jobs!

    I hope the FBI is paying very close attention to this radical hate group. If any of these Tea-bagging nobodies listens to and follows the not-so-subtle suggestion from Tancredo to cause harm to our "Socialist Muslim non-President", I personally guarantee that retaliation and backlash toward the Tea-baggers will be swift and inconceivably severe.

    I would take the Tea Party movement more seriously if every gathering did not resemble a Klan rally. Where are the blacks and hispanics?? Where are the other ethnic groups in America and why, oh why do these people say that want to "take back America"? From whom are you taking it? The illegals that you love to hate don't have any power and the rest of us have a much right to America as you do. I have an idea. Why don't YOU go find somewhere else to live where you can govern as you wish and leave the rest of us to live in peace. By the way, we've pretty much figured out that the Tea Party movement is just another arm of the Republican party.

  22. Lost in Texas FOREVER

    I think the Tea Party movement along with Sarah Palin might be the BEST thing the Democrats can hope for. With the speeches these folks are giving which is more about intolerance and division than trying to fix goverment, many are starting to see what this movement is REALLY about. Too bad it didn't start back when it should have, when Bush was in office and the spending started. They look like a bunch of right wingers, still can't accept their group lost in 2008, and can't accept a president who is "different" than what they are used to. Now some stuff about e-mails is coming out about Sister Sarah that is not too flattering plus the fact it seems that she too is afraid to call out Rush Limbaugh on his use of the "R" word yet wanted the Democrat fired. This movement is crashing from within with no real message or leadership...sounds just like the GOP to me.

  23. The Lonely Libertarian of Liverpool NY

    The tea parties began in 2007 of a grass roots support of Ron Paul and his Campaign for Liberty platform. Since then this movement has been hijacked by Glenn Beck in 09/12/08 so he could improve his resume to join Fox news with a multi Million Dollar contract. In the summer of 2009 these 912 groups themselves without any foundation were usurped by the conservative PACs of Freedom Works and The Club for Growth who brought million of dollars to promote their extreme conservative agenda.
    This was not what these people were looking to change, they want smaller government and spending reductions, they are not racists, and they are not against homosexuality and truly only want a return to this nation’s foundation of freedom and liberty for all under the parameters of the US Constitution. .
    The tea party was exciting, but I fear it has been hijacked by the very forces they wanted to oppose. . The tea party now is too much to the extreme right for me. The continued failed drug policy that wastes billions of tax dollars a year, not to mention the lives of law enforcement and innocent bystanders, the Tea Party stance against the right to choose, their stance against gays like they do not even have a right to exist. To me the tea parties now are all for the constitution when it works in their favor, but do not want to hear all that talk about personnel Liberty and Freedom.
    IT IS ABOUT OUR FREEDOM AND LIBERTY!
    Please, Please take a look at the Libertarian platform again. If you truly want truth, justice and the American way, you will need to join us as we make these very unpopular choices to save our Republic from extiction.

    Movement my backside!! Where was the outrage when the Repubs had the purse strings. Not one group on the right stood up to the status quo and said NO. So why now???

    If you are going to stand on principles, it shouldn't matter what political party is in power. To say we are for less gov, individual liberties, less taxes, no socialize/gov run healthcare (fyi medicare/(caid), social security, and va are gov run) is preposterous.

    Oh,....No one really cared back then "right" america.
