  1. What's in that tea anyway?

    We just have to get rid of Tea Party morons that are trying to destroy our country. After that we will be fine.

    "Brats for Veterans Advocacy Group says it’s apolitical and had a list of guidelines on the website for Sunday’s rally, advising against “political rhetoric veering away from our core message,” “disrespecting of others,” and “protest signs that do not convey the core message contained within our pages.”

    So, what did these "Brats" think was going to happen? You get folks all worked up into a frenzy and guess what? "Disrespecting of others" and "protest signs that do not convey the core message contained within our pages" is generally what happens.

    The maturity level of the United States of America is near zero percent. I will give credit where credit is due: Facebook and our media and TeaParty "look at ME, look at ME" activists.

    All. Very. Pathetic.

    More straw man arguments from the Tea Party.

    The Tea Party is pretty much against raising the debt ceiling ever again. The House has passed a series of small appropriations bills to fund programs that feed their narrative. Let's overlook the fact that the House had not passed a single appropriations bill prior to the shutdown, which is a first, for now. The House has passed these appropriations bills, but they have not funded them. There are no budget cuts elsewhere to pay for them. We would have to borrow money to fund these programs, but the Tea Party does not want to raise the debt ceiling. Hypocrites, you would say. Ignorance, I would say. Stubborn ignorance.

    Sorry, folks. I guess the first two gut punches hit far too close to the truth. Some hypocrisies are hiding in plain sight.
