  • By the way a few other things you Left Wing / Progressives are totally wrong about.

    Prime examples of the hypocrisy of the liberal can be found in the following

    22.They disrespect the President at every opportunity.

    Shall we break out all the posters and commits that liberals made during the 8 years George W. Bush was in office. I got to say that during the time President Obama has been in office, I don’t recall large groups of people gathering almost daily with dozens of signs calling for his death as was the case while George W. Bush was president. I DO remember you left wing nutcakes doing this. So, who are the ones who disrespect a President? Truth got to hurt doesn’t it.

    69. They refuse to acknowledge that 9/11 occurred during the Bush Administration.

    Now this one is flat stupid. We know because liberals have told us every day since it happened. But if we are going to ask question or say thing of that nature. How many liberals know who was president when the Trade Towers were bombed the first time? How may know who was the president during the bombing of the USS Cole? How many know who was president when the bombing of the Khobar towers happened? Who was the president during the twin bombing to American Embassy’s? Who was the President of the United States when Osama Bin Laden issued his multi-page written declaration of war against the United States in 1996? Who was the president of the United States that allowed the passing of numerous opportunities to arrest or take out Bin laden From 1996 to 2000? REALLY WHO HAS REFUSED TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ALLOWING BIN LADEN TO BE FREE TO PULL OFF 9/11?
    Give you a clue: He was a Democratic President, involved in a scandal with a intern and his wife is Sec. of State today. This for you historically illiterate.

  • Well now, more conservatives own guns than you left wings nuts so who’s going to win this little war you’ve declared?

    But really, item number 4 on your list is a joke.
    You don’t think Obama is sending jobs overseas? Consider the Gibson guitar company in TN. They have been raided twice by the Obama police because of ‘illegal import of wood’, while at the same time their competitor brings in the same wood and gets the same permits as Gibson.

    Guess you people can’t call the kettle black when it’s really Black and this looks like payback because Gibson supports only Republicans!

  • You know what, be careful what you wish for: More conservatives own guns than you liberals/progressives.

    But really, item #4
    4. They want to send every last American job overseas.
    Oh, Obama isn’t in the process of sending jobs overseas? Look into the Gibson Guitar company and what Obama police said to the company owner: “This would go away if you ship your wood processing overseas”. All this while the another company imports the same woods as Gibson but is a big OBAMA contributor!

    HUM, lets call the kettle black and I mean Black.

  • When we give up liberty for security we lose both and deserve neither. Ben Franklin said something close to this right before the revolutionary war. The tea party is not fit to run this country.

  • Is this directed at the people involved in the Republican and Tea Parties or the politicians? There is a huge difference, because according to a CBS poll back in January, about two-thirds of those polled said they would rather increase taxes than cut Social Security. The politicians on the other hand probably all want to cut Social Security in some way or another, or at least not increase taxes to help it in any way, shape, or form.
    This is just one example of things that throw me off in this post. I have a hard time deciphering which one you are taking on here.

  • “Tea Bagging” Is a Lewd Sex Act ! And has No Place In a Public Forum ! What happened to Political Correctness ? How would You feel if I called You FAT or MIDGET or STUPID FEMALE ? Where is This New age of Servility Obama Talked About ? No One on the Left is adhering to It !

    • Uh…Fox “news” was the first organization to refer to tea party members as “teabaggers”

    • It’s CIVILITY, Bill. Use some of your bush tax cut to buy a freakin’ dictionary.

      An Age of Servility is what the TEABAGGERS want.

    • The “New age of Servility Obama talked about”??? Strange, even though that appears to be the way Obama is acting I think he said the new age of civility. “Servility” (is there such a word?) sounds as though we should be servants to someone. I’ll pass on that one, thank you.

      As for civility…..take a look at where that’s got Obama. I’ll be civil to those who are civil to me. Otherwise they can just kiss my a**! That applies to the republican leadership and their tea baggers.

      • You can make up lies and call us names all you want. The people of Smaller Government have been getting taxed, crapped on and lied too for too long to let names bother us now. We have come so far. GOD I LOVE THE TEA PARTY!!!

    • Um…that’s what they called themselves in the beginning.

  • This blog is living proof that Libs are mentally ill and should never be in positions of power.

  • 81. they root for, if not want to literally bring about, the Apocalypse.

  • Evil sells lies, fear and hate.
    What the tea party is not is infinite, and lies are infinite
    What we are is definite and limited -
    In a single sentence I see the tea party as dedicated to protecting the inherent rights of every individual.

    • Then you Tom M., have not been paying attention. The tea baggers are the scrouge of the earth and people have noticed that in recent weeks. If you believe what you wrote then you are as blind as a bat.

  • The list is tripe…as are most of the comments. The legions of useful idiots are dwindling and this nonsensical rhetoric is, not surprisingly inversely proportional to Obama’s falling poll numbers. The tea party is not a definable organization…it is simply an idea; albeit not a new one. And those desperately trying to destroy it via propaganda, demonization, and distortion only propagate the message and defining principles the idea represents.

    I say well done Mr. Foster!

    Kind Regards,

    S.O.B

    • Aquarian dreamer

      oh good all the tea party idiots have left then? well, no, your still here. oh well. one can hope.

      as to the tea party your right its a segment of the GOP that has made itself money and is making the GOP a laughingstock. please so I can demonstrate your stupidity, define the “IDEA” of the Tea Party.

      is it Freedom for all?
      nope. they want to ban gay marriage, abortions, Islam and its leaders in Washington want to redefine rape in nonsensical ways( amongst other bullshit).

      oh wait I heard something about reducing big government, is that it?
      again must not be. what with the ‘need’ of a stronger military, the need to make sure women arent having abortions and murdering poor defenseless embryos; the need to police those filthy gays to make sure they don’t get married, delving into their private lives to make sure they aren’t unamerican(or as Mrs. Bachman so wonderfully put it, agents of Satan), denying them the right to raise children, just in case the children are “raised gay”. and don’t forget those Moslems, cant forget about those Moslems who have a holy war to destroy this great Christian nation(wait a minute, a Christian nation? I thought the founders specifically created the 1st amendment to create a SECULAR nation. beyond giving a nod to the great watchmaker in the sky, god has nothing to do with this nations founding, beyond why some of the original settlers arrived). so it cant be smaller government.

      oh, I know its about big buissiness. after all they are the job creators aren’t they Trinacria? so why not just not have them pay taxes. and why should they pay their workers a living wage? why not just pay you a dollar a day?

      as to “destroy it via propaganda, demonization, and distortion” your right the tea party IS trying to destroy this county with propaganda, demonization, and distortion.

  • (I’m not playing games, this ‘reply box’ keeps popping up as though I haven’t sent anything in and this time with my previous comment..)

    Where did he give the speech and to whom did he give it? Where can we see a video of this speech?

  • Where did he give the speech and to whom did he give it? Where can we see a video of this speech?

  • President Obama admonished us to do more: What we cannot do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on each other. That we cannot do. As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility, rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let’s use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together.

  • Yes let’s take the tea baggers/gop down.The American people are at wit’s end. These sons of bitches need to be brought to task. Let’s vote them out.

  • Just ten are true? Instead of asking which ones you like (pick any ten at random and you have enough reason not to vote for them), I’d challenge you to pick just 10 that you think aren’t true and explain why. Or five. Just five. I’ll even give you one: “They want to send every last American job overseas.” Not true. They want to keep THEIR jobs. It’s just YOURS they want to get rid of.

  • @ s.Jordan: Sadly they are ALL true. For each and every one I can name the instance, the politician, the voting record, the policy statement or the legal effort in which either a GOP leader, or a substantial portion of the party, or the party as a whole has done what this list of 80 items claims. I approached the list with some skepticism, wondering how much satire and/or exaggeration I would find. I found none. This is what Republicans in specific and the GOP in general has been doing recently and/or for quite a while. Try me. Challenge one. I’ll answer, not with my opinions, but with cited public information fact.

    • I have never seen nor heard of the GOP party advocating a state religion. Nor have I heard of nor seen anyone advocating taking away my social security.

      • I’m surprised you picked those two. There’s a ton of right-wing talk about America having been founded as a Christian nation and that it should return to same. Those who speak that way mention “In God We Trust” on our currency and also the Pledge of Allegiance where it says ” …one nation under God …” ignoring the fact that the original Pledge was not written with the phrase “under God.” That phrase was added in the 1950′s during the Cold War as a way of pushing back against the “godless” Soviet Union. Similarly, Michele Bachmann for one, and Rick Perry for another, have both advocated that Social Security should be eliminated. They’re willing to phase it out and grandfather the existing elderly, but they want it terminated and replaced by private investment plans.

        • Well, to be quite honest, the country was founded mostly by christian folks, but since then we’ve added lots of faiths. The declaration states that we are endowed by our creator. Most of the first politicians were christian. When they talk about returning to a christian nation, they’re not talking about people, they’re talking about principles and not allow things like sharia law nor unprincipled people or politics to infiltrate our government. As far as social security, not one person has advocated taking anybody’s away from them. They want to restructure it so it can survive. Michelle Bachman nor Rick Perry can dictate policy. Even if they were elected, they couldn’t do away with it. What they are advocating is eventually phasing out social security, but you would have to start with the very young just starting in the workforce. Nobody now paying in would have it taken from them. Certain people in the democratic party would also have you believe that they want to hang blacks and kill homosexuals. That’s just garbage. There are people out there who hate blacks and homosexuals of both parties. I know em, and it’s not a tea party or republican view. All this crap that people are saying just isn’t true, just like Hank Johnson saying Guam might tip over or Maxine Waters saying all the hateful things she says about repubs and tea partiers. I just ain’t so.

          • Actually, while the original Pilgrims may have been Christian Puritans, most of the Founding Fathers were not of the Christian faith. Washington, Jefferson, Payne, Franklin and the majority of the authors of the Constitution were Deists (believing in a divine creator) but not Christians. Many of their writings point out that the US is not meant to be thought of as a Christian nation.

            As for the Social Security issue: Eric Cantor recently said that those not currently drawing Social Security had been fed a lie and were not going to ultimately draw benefits. Bush tried to privatize Social Security during his entire presidency. Bachmann and Perry have both expressed their desire to cut Social Security altogether.

            And I wish that they would stop referring to Social Security and Medicare as “entitlement” programs. It makes it sound like I haven’t been paying into the program. It’s my money and I want it back.

            • Except Social Security was founded upon a actuarial lie, which FDR warned of: and given the pilfering of funds (SS has as more IOUs than Fort Knox ever had gold) and the time bomb that was and is our demography, and given all the wars we’ve engaged in and the loss of industry through offshoring, the USA is presently bankrupt. When the looters show up in earnest you will see the end of any America you ever knew. And you will wonder what happened, all the while demanding more from the hacks you elected who haven’t a clue as to what has happened nor what to do. But you’ll find a scapegoat — you always do — and you’ll tell your stupefied children it’s all the fault of them goats and if only people had listened to you and opened their hearts and wallets and if only the government had done more, like the Chinese, Russian, Venezuelan and Cuban, et al., then catastrophe might have been averted. And You worry about our Christians while the Muslims impose Sharia. You will get what you deserve.

          • Aquarian dreamer

            are3 you retarded? or do you just ignore everything that is SHOWN to be true that proves your nice cozy storyland false?

            to break it down for you you ignorant ass:
            ” the country was founded mostly by christian folks” yes christian, as in roman catholics, lutherans, congregationalists, deists(of which it is hypothosized that most of the founding fathers were, look it up if you dont get what Deism is) among others, many of whom settled america to get away from persicution. many of these people would look on in horror at what we have let polorize our SECULAR politics.
            “When they talk about returning to a christian nation, they’re not talking about people, they’re talking about principles and not allow things like sharia law nor unprincipled people or politics to infiltrate our government.Michelle Bachman nor Rick Perry can dictate policy. Even if they were elected, they couldn’t do away with it. ” to late the tea party already got there. and sharia law(like CHRISTIAN/JUDAIC LAW) BEING RELIGIOUS LAW cannot be implimented without REPEALING OR ALTERING THE CONSTITUTION IN THE FIRST DAMN PLACE.

            “As far as social security, not one person has advocated taking anybody’s away from them. They want to restructure it so it can survive. What they are advocating is eventually phasing out social security, but you would have to start with the very young just starting in the workforce.”
            and they want to leave it in the hands of those fine ladies and gentlemen who nearly bankrupted this country what 3 years ago now and begged to be saved because they were “to big to fail”? and no social security is not failing, if only the government would keep its paws off it. oh wait. in 2017 Social security will have to “dip into”its TRUST FUND to HELP MAKE payments($615,344,000,000 was paid out in 2008, and I assume from the wiki page that means it made at least 616 BILLION since it didnt dip into the SS trust fund)….yep SS is on it last legs, yea sure you betcha!
            “Certain people in the democratic party would also have you believe that they want to hang blacks and kill homosexuals.”(actually reubs and the Tea Party Jihad aren’t quite saying that, but yea they are racist, or at least putting on a damn fine act)see, thats not what second class citizens are for, well, except for the occasional target practice maybe. you are a frigging idiot to believe that the only people who will loose their rights will be blacks, gays, latinos, japanese, chinese… you take away the rights of ANY SEGMENT of the population and you open the door to the loss of rights BY ALL. why should we ban just gay marriage? you know what, lets ban interracial marriage as well. oh and interfaith marriage…how about banning any marriage except between fundamentalist christian marriages?

            get over yourself and think for once will you?

            • but yea they are racist, or at least putting on a damn fine act). This is pure bunk. They are no more racists than democrats. All have a few racists, but the majority are not.

              and sharia law(like CHRISTIAN/JUDAIC LAW) BEING RELIGIOUS LAW cannot be implimented without REPEALING OR ALTERING THE CONSTITUTION IN THE FIRST DAMN PLACE. Sorry your wrong again. There has already been an occasion where a judge let sharia law influence his decision. You don’t the gov’t violates the constitution every dam day.

              yep SS is on it last legs, yea sure you betcha! I didn’t say it was on it’s last leg, I said it is slowly going broke and if something isn’t done, eventually it will be. Do the math. The are less people paying in than receiving. SS is a ponzi scheme that never should have started in the first place. It’s a dam socialist program started by democrats, just like obamacare that will suck us dry. We can’t pay everything for everybody, that’s why we have to borrow trillions to keep up with government giveaways.

        • I support god and gay rights and I vote GOP! I also wore a uniform which is very unlike all of you spineless liberals hat hide behind a keyboard! Try me and I will own you and if you doubt that you’ll regret that!!! Read real history not just the new deal and you’ll see the error of your ideals

          • David,

            I get it, there are NO people in the military in your imaginary world how could there be with your fascist dreamland. Guess what pal, there are Liberals who serve. Your blatant stereotyping gives away your extreme political bias. What you don’t realize is that your comments only hurt your cause, you make your own ideology look petty and hateful.

          • David, I’m curious.

            Let’s just say I’m trying you. I think you’re a traitor to friends, neighbors, family, co-workers, and tyour fellow Americans who disagree with you on some issues. I think you have some personal issues that make you unworthy of any political debate as well.

            So, I just wanna get right to the part where I will regret what I say because you will own me. I’m pushing you, scumbag.

            Here’s your chance. Show me.

  • Maybe, just maybe 10 of these are true, the rest is either propoganda or just plain untruths.

    • Really? Thanks for the informative comment, filled with inciteful fact-based information. Oh wait….

      • Fact based? And what’s fact based about listing 80 things whether they are true or not. Let’s have facts for all 80 of these. I would like to see it. They want a state religion? Really. They want to take away your social security?? Not true. A lot of these are just plain untrue.

    • Alien Guardian

      *Someone’s* a Republican who’s about to throw a hissy fit. Are you going to cry like your idol Boehner?

    • Ronald Anderson

      Tea bàgger……………actually if you would do your own research and not let others do it for you, all of these statements are true.

      • Sorry I’m not a teabagger, nor a Republican for that matter. Just another example of don’t know what the hell your talking about.

        • It’s hard to argue with mentally deranged people Jordan, it’s about as productive as watching a turtle climb a rope.

          • Aquarian dreamer

            yea it is hard to reason with you. but then there is no reasoning within you so no reasoning from without will help you.

            • You wouldn’t need to argue if you weren’t such idiots. Liberals are like owls…The more light you shine on them, the less they see. Liberals come from the give me generation….I want, give me, I’m entitled, whiners and cry babies for the most part. Even we independents can see that. Even Thomas Jefferson warned against socialist policies.
