Woonsocket Tea Party group stops supplemental tax increase.
It was originally expected to pass, no problem. But then a bunch of people showed up and… well. 6-1 for became 4-3 against. WOONSOCKET — Faced with a heavy outpouring of opposition from property owners, the City Council last night narrowly defeated a supplemental tax bill to wipe out a School Department deficit of $3.7 million. [snip] The measure would have given the city authority | Read More »
Why are we surprised?
I have to start by giving credit to President Obama. He is doing exactly what he said he was going to do during his campaign. Many people can’t believe the massive debt this administration is running up by unprecedented government spending and I have to admit that I found myself in disbelief at first but we all new this was going to happen. It was | Read More »
The Tea Party Movement Is Real
For those who still insist that the Tea Party Movement is nothing more than right wing extremist rednecks who are only expressing their racists views and because they dare to stand against an oppressive government and are unpatriotic, think again. According to a new Rasmussen poll, those favoring the reasons for the Tea Parties are the MAJORITY in The United States. The Rasmussen poll sites | Read More »
Wednesday’s media Tea Party coverage, in its purest form.
I have to agree with Brother Pejman and Sister Academic Elephant: Bluftooni nailed this one cold. But that’s OK: you can’t actually make grown-up stop doing something simply by making crude sexual jokes about them. You can thoroughly tick them off, so let me just thank the media for that as we move on to the next step of turning 600K into a few million. | Read More »
NBC Suits Warn CNBC Staff Against ‘Obama Bashing,’ Becoming ‘Too Conservative’
General Electric CEO Jeffery Immelt, thought to be one of Keith Olbermann’s biggest supporters, and NBC Universal President Jeff Zucker are reported to have called some of CNBC’s on-air talent to a secret meeting at least if the The New York Post’s Page Six column for April 16 has it right. The meeting was called to scold the cable yackers for being too harsh on | Read More »
Chgo Sun-Times Columnist: Tea Party Goers Hate Our Soldiers?
In an outrageous calumny, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg has decided that the nearly one million Americans that attended the tax day tea party protests all across the country must not care about our military veterans. Considering a large number of these very same protesters were military vets, I’d bet that Steinberg’s blinkered figuring would come as quite a surprise to them. In his April | Read More »
The Reagan Revolution – Not
I recently read the transcript of a lecture by Stephen F. Hadley delivered on April 13th in the Bradley lecture series, and it moved me to write this diary, and how I view what Mr Hadley said applies to the April 15th Tea Party events. One of the main premises in his speech is that President Reagan was not calling for a Revolution, but instead | Read More »
Obama And The Left’s Real Concern About The Tea Party Movement
We were called insignificant. The MSM and cable news, other than Fox, went out of their way to degrade, insult and create a picture of the Tea Parties as gatherings of ,”white racists,” and brainless extremists who know nothing and were organized and paid for by the rich who are, “finally,” getting their just reward by Obama’s tax agenda. Democrat leaders in Congress claimed that | Read More »
HuffPo Offended By Tea Parties
SCROLL DOWN FOR LEFT-WING PROTEST PHOTOS/VIDEO PROTESTING BUSH 2008 The Huffington Post, amid their thousands of column inches, hundreds of stories, and thousands of photos dedicated to discussing why the tea parties are stupid and unworthy of attention, recently and snarkily compiled their list of the Top Ten Most Offensive Tea Party Signs, the purpose of which, like that CNN hack what’s her name, is | Read More »
Georgia’s Habersham County kicks local Tea Party off government property by enforcing laws that do not exist
Promoted from diaries by Mark Impomeni. From this story in The Northeast Georgian newspaper on April 16, we learn about another Tea Party that crossed swords with local government. Indeed, Habersham County government took issue with the 75 patriots upset over the growth of government…by telling them they had no right to use government property. The first relocation, off [Habersham County] courthouse grounds, came at | Read More »
Why Stop Now? Keep the Tea Parties Alive!
With the massive success of the Tea Parties (and the predictable backlash from the liberal media), why stop now? At present, the “Tax Day Tea Party Numbers” thread (combined with my totals in the 247-250th comments this AM) has 222 sites with more than 410,000 participants. On a Wednesday. On a day when many people have to work. Could this be even bigger, even harder | Read More »
Janeane Garofalo calls teabaggers “racist rednecks”
Janeane clears up who the protesters are and what motivates them…no it is not having all their tax dollars being given to rich fat cats that bankrupted their companies and, in part, created the economic crisis. Nor is it the fact that their children and grandchildren will be overtaxed to pay for these bailouts. It isn’t even the that Obama and his $12 TRILLION dollar | Read More »
Anyone Got a Map?
I am very curious – what direction is our country headed, as far as ideology is concerned? I’m looking at the course of foreign policy decisions that have been made over the last 88 days, and it doesn’t feel like blue-blooded, hard-working, capitalist, proud, moral, ethical America any longer. We used to ally ourselves with the great people around the world. Our best friends have | Read More »
Avoiding Criticism: CNN Shuts Down Anti-Tea Party Reporter’s Email Address
So, we are all well aware of the so-called “reporter” from CNN, Susan Roesgen whose on-air haranguing of those she was ostensibly reporting on made obvious her anti-Republican bias. Well, for the past day Americans have been emailing her to let her know how they feel about her unprofessional attitude. Apparently, CNN does not appreciate hearing from its viewers, though, because all of a sudden | Read More »
Carry The TEA Parties On!
There is only ONE WAY to make CHANGE. That is through transactions. The TEA Parties and those Patriots who attended them and stood their ground, now need to take action. BOYCOTT EVERY ADVERTISER WHO ADVERTISES ON EVERY LIBERAL SOCIALIST NEWS MEDIA OUTLET. If the numbers who turned out for TEA Parties could be mobilized to boycott those advertisers, the remaining CHANGE from those transactions would | Read More »
