Prove Your Patriotism — Go To a Tea Party

Fireworks, barbecues, family gatherings — that’s all well and good. But Real Americans will show their True Grit by attending a Tea Party on July Fourth. They were such a smashing success last April — boy, did we show that commie in the White House a thing or three — let’s do it again.

As you probably know, the “Tea” in Tea Party stands for Taxed Enough Already. If you’re sick and tired of Big Government and Class Warfare, you WILL get out there on July Fourth and do some teabagging.

Government bureaucrats standing between you and your doctor, successful Americans paying higher taxes than the riffraff — Enough!

These tax-and-spend Democrats are ruining this great nation. If you’re longing for the huge budget surpluses we had during George W. Bush’s presidency, let everybody know. Ask yourself: what have you done for Big Business lately?

Find a tea party near you.

I'd wager that Hussein X wants to roll the top tax rate back to the ridiculous amount it was under that noted Stalinist, Saint Ronnie.

One more thing: I'm confused. Tea is a homersexual drink, but I'm willing to cut our Founding Fathers some slack since they didn't have pickup trucks and pinups of Mooselini. Am I still a Real American if I substitute a can of Busch for a limp-wristed teabag?

Randal: Well, I guess Busch would be a step up from those gay teabags. But a Real Man would bring a case of Jack Daniels to the demonstration. And swill it out of the bottle Goddamnit, not some sissy glass with them homo ice cubes in it.

An excellent idea! As we all know, many of the "tea partiers" are also members of groups like the Minutemen and the National Alliance, most famous for lifetime member Tim McVeigh. What patriots they are! If only Chevie Kehoe could get furloughed long enough to attend one!

I wonder how many of these Tea baggers were the people who voted for Bush and supported the war the drove the country to the brink of economic ruin?

From the Tea Party site Tom linked to:

"Government spending is filled with pork earmarks like this: The National Institutes of Health will pay $2.6 million in U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job."

From Media Matters:

"In a May 13 blog entry posted on several conservative blogs, NewsBusters contributing writer Warner Todd Huston falsely claimed that President Obama funded a $2.6 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to "help train Chinese prostitutes to 'drink responsibly on the job.' " In the post -- headlined, "Obama Pays to Treat Alcoholism in Chinese Hookers" -- Huston claimed that "the President of 'change' seems to be The One that drunken Chinese prostitutes 'have been waiting for.' ... [D]id Obama become president of Chinese hookers, too?" In fact, the NIH grant, which will "establish and evaluate whether an alcohol and HIV intervention center can assist in reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS among sex workers in China," was awarded during the Bush administration. Indeed, the very source Huston cited in making the claim -- a May 12 Cybercast News Service (CNS) article -- reported that the grant was "made last November."

I would like to show up at one of those tea parties to debunk this dishonest drivel.

How pathetic. If they didn't have lies, they wouldn't have anything at all.

the politicians don't pay any attention to anything but what the voters do at the polls. you can teabag party all you want, they don't give a rat's ass. so what are you guys doing for the country while the teabaggers are partying, writing letters to their elected idiots, informing themselves about the bills that the politicians don't read, and watching the unemployment rate go up and up, and more and more industry leaving this country?

JR: Ah yes, where's Chevie Kehoe now when his country needs him?

Lew: When it comes to invading and occupying other countries, and spying on American citizens, money is no object. It only becomes "tax and spend" when the money helps people with their medical bills.

SW: "If they didn't have lies, they wouldn't have anything at all." That's the teabaggers (and the Far Right in general) in a nutshell.

SM: Yes, some scones would go great with their Twinings Earl Grey while they're demonstrating against the socialists and the riffraff.

Screw tea parties. I'll be sitting at home contemplating the long, nasty history of people just like those idiot "teabaggers" who though manifest destiny was true, and that it justified the genocide of an entire group of people who were here first.

Bee: I'll be contemplating those same things, me and John Barleycorn.

Tom: I could only think of having Larry Craig show up in tight britches, laced collar and monicle with a bone china tea cup. Jolly good sport what. Tally ho it's off to the tea party.

Demeur: LOL. Good description. I'm glad the GOP is taking a wide stance on this issue.
