The Real Boston Tea Party was an Anti-Corporate Revolt
CNBC Correspondent Rick Santelli called for a "Chicago Tea Party" on Feb 19th in protesting President Obama's plan to help homeowners in trouble. Santelli's call was answered by the right-wing group FreedomWorks, which funds campaigns promoting big business interests, and is the opposite of what the real Boston Tea Party was. FreedomWorks was funded in 2004 by Dick Armey (former Republican House Majority leader & lobbyist); consolidated Citizens for a Sound Economy, funded by the Koch family; and Empower America, a lobbying firm, that had fought against healthcare and minimum-wage efforts while hailing deregulation.
Anti-tax "tea party" organizers are delivering one million tea bags to a Washington, D.C., park Wednesday morning - to promote protests across the country by people they say are fed up with high taxes and excess spending.
The real Boston Tea Party was a protest against huge corporate tax cuts for the British East India Company, the largest trans-national corporation then in existence. This corporate tax cut threatened to decimate small Colonial businesses by helping the BEIC pull a Wal-Mart against small entrepreneurial tea shops, and individuals began a revolt that kicked-off a series of events that ended in the creation of The United States of America. http://www.commondreams.org/view/2009/04/15-1...
Fiscal conservatives and F.D. Roosevelt were against government insuring private bank savings.
It only materialized because it was promoted by moderate Republicans like Arthur Vandenburg and Populist Democrats like Henry Steagall.( Glass-Steagall.)
Today there are zero moderate Republicans and Obama and most Democrats are corporatist and not liberals.
Obama ‘s Health Care is a massive giveaway to the HMO’s just like the Bush Republican Senior Citizen prescription drug bill in 2006.
Seniors and all Americans are still paying the highest medicine prices.

O'Reilly Denies Fox History Of Slandering Obama On Benghazi
On his Fox News show Friday night, Bill O'Reilly claimed that no one here has ever called President Obama a murderer or liar over his handling of the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya.
But several Fox stooges have accused Obama of purposely allowing Americans to die in Benghazi, and just last week, O'Reilly himself questioned a fellow Fox News host about having labeled the president a liar on Libya.
So not only is O'Reilly a liar about it, he can not even remember that just a a week aho he questioned a fellow Fox News host about having labeled the president a liar on Libya.
O'Reilly addressed the issue on his Friday show when guest Geraldo Rivera told him that President Obama deserves an apology for the way he's been treated in the press following the Benghazi attack.
Rivera said this: "The president of the United States been absolutely slandered over this story. He's been called a murderer and a liar."
O'Reilly then said this: "OK. But not by anybody here, and not by rational people."
And now the truth, Fox News hosts, contributors, and regular guests have suggested that the Obama administration made a political decision to let Americans die in Benghazi.
O'Reilly even questioned fellow Fox host Jeanine Pirro last week about having labeled Obama a liar on her show.
On his October 25 show, O'Reilly aired a clip from Pirro's Fox show Justice with Judge Jeanine.
In the clip, Pirro addresses President Obama on Libya, saying this: "You knew in real time from the men on the ground being savaged what was happening. You knew through video surveillance what was happening. You knew from a cable within 24 hours that the attack was by militants. So what's the punishment for lying? For incompetence? Has anyone been prosecuted?"
O'Reilly then welcomed Pirro to his program by highlighting her charge that Obama was lying about Libya. O'Reilly said this: "So you just called the president of the United States a liar."
Pirro responded with this: "I think that when you don't state the true facts that there are certain words that you can use and that's appropriate."
Despite O'Reilly's claim to the contrary, this is not the first time someone on Fox has labeled Obama a liar over the Benghazi attack. It happens almost every day by someone at Fox, either a host or a guest.
And then O'Reilly lies that nobody on Fox has called Obama a liar, when he himself had a Fox News employee on his own show where he asked her about calling Obama a liar. Talk about dishonest, that's about as dishonest as a so-called journalist can be.

UR making up Play Law rules and Play History.
The Congress was quite definite what they meant by "jurisdiction" and that the definition of the term was exactly per its subsisting meaning. They were fully aware of the rules of constitutional and statutory construction as applied by the courts and that the intent of the first sentence would be determined by the ordinary meaning of the words in the clause, unless expressly stated otherwise, and not from colloquy.
What is "hashed out" is which terms and what language to include. If any controlling definition of a term must be applied which differs from its ordinary meaning or particular legal definition in use at the time, then that definition must be expressly recited in the article or statute. That is how it was done in 1789 and 1866, and that is how it is done today. Play Law doesn't count.

Bob, why do birfoons such as yourself insist on choosing the least effective arena to spread your lies?
You do realize that topix is an Internet backwater that has no influence on the political narrative whatsoever, don't you?
Further, this is not blogging. You're commenting on an article from '09 that was published in a crappy newspaper. If you want to blog you'll have to learn how to write ON A BLOG.
#122662 Nov 3, 2012
Bob, you may have missed it, but the above is complete BS.
Speaking of BS, have you met my buddy from Kentucky. He's batshit crazy like you. I think you'd get along swimmingly.
#122665 Nov 3, 2012
Kentucky, it's true -- other news sources have also published incorrect information. Some, but not all.
Here's the difference between them and WND: When a real news source makes a mistake, the make a retraction or correct it; WND is purposely misleading you birfoons for the sake of revenue.
Is that hard for you to understand?
Yes, the owner and editor-in-chief of the primary source of birfoon information publically admitted to lying to his readers.

Shitcago..lol! You got that right! You outta copyright that one! After this, I ain't never going to that place.
I hope this election really nails obama and the MSM...after they double-downed on obama ...everyone that does that loses in the end. The dems will have the biggest meltdown of all of them.
Those voters in line in the above post of mine say that they people in line have a look of absolute serious resolve and determination on their faces. I read that as the Republicans showing up and jamming this election down these libtards' throats. They can't wait to vote. Neither can I.

I see it much like Barone does and I think it all boils down to voter enthusiasm. You can not keep the anti-Obama voter from the polls with razor wire. Outside of Obama's core supporters , the lack of enthusiasm this go round tends to dampen the party atmosphere, and we know the hip crowd shuns "loserville" parties. I don't even see it as close.

Jay, you are spot on with your comment "you can not keep the anti-Obama voter from the polls with razor wire." Every person I've spoken to who is remotely leaning conservative can't wait to vote out Obama. They are ready to walk across hot coals, 5 miles uphill in a driving snowstorm, cross a pond of hungry alligators and wait in line hours to get to register their votes. Perhaps even more importantly, after people have gotten a chance to know Romney better, they are enthusiastic about him. I hear good comments from many of my conservative friends who, almost in a surprised manner, are favorably impressed with Romney. Romney / Ryan = win November 6th!

Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia are looking good for Romney. Looks like early/absentee voting is going Romney's way in Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Colorado. Barry made a trip to the NW corner of Iowa which gets in in the Minnesota media market (you wouldn't actually see him set foot in Minnesota right now), the New York Times ran an article that Pennyslvania was tilting to Romney, New Hampshire is looking like it may go Romney's way as well. A little cherry on top all of this is that Romney has a fighting chance of picking off an electorial vote in Maine.
So far so good....

Several "blue" states, including California, have signed on to the Popular Vote Movement, I say in the weeks in between Nov. 6 and the day the Electoral College votes in December, that we pressure these blue states to give their EVs to Romney. You know, pressure them to put their money where their mouth is.

The Electoral College is based on the Senate (100 votes Senate, 435 votes House). This means that if there is disproportionate representation, it's that darn Senate getting in the way. This is going to be a fun fact to point out the next few years if Republicans control the Presidency and the House while the Democrats keep the Senate.

Today was the last day for early voting in my N Tx community ( pop. 15000). I waited until after 2Pm thinking that there would be a rush over lunch hour. When I got there, a line of 50-60 voters wound around city hall, waiting to vote. It took about a half hour to get to the voting booth. When I finished voting, the line was still there, if not even longer than before. The people in line were cheerful, but had a very determined appearance about them........

The Washington Examiner
Jeep, an Obama favorite, looks to shift production to China
Wisconsin company announces layoffs ahead of Biden arrival
Obama hints at handgun restrictions too
Obama in Ohio: Magic gone, the president grinds it out
Jeep Wrangler behind the president as seen in his new second term agenda binder.
->->In another potential blow for the president's Ohio reelection campaign, Jeep, the rugged brand President Obama once said symbolized American freedom, is considering giving up on the United States and shifting production to China.
->->Such a move would crash the economy in towns like Toledo, Ohio, where Jeeps are made and supplied, and rob the community of the economic security they thought Obama's auto bailout assured them.
Obama is such a fan of Jeep that he included a picture of himself speaking at the Toledo plant in his newly released second term agenda binder. In his address to the plant in 2011, Obama said, "I just took a short tour of the plant and watched some of you putting the finishing touches on the Wrangler. Now, as somebody reminded, I need to call it the 'iconic' Wrangler. And that's appropriate because when you think about what Wrangler has always symbolized. It symbolized freedom, adventure, hitting the open road, never looking back."
Well it appears that the taxpayer bailed-out Chrysler is looking back and now considering cutting costs by shifting production of all Jeeps to China, which has a strong desire for Jeeps.
In a Bloomberg interview, Jeep's president said the automaker plans to restore Jeep production in China, suspended in 2009, and is considering making all Jeeps in China. "Fiat SpA, majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers' operations in the region," reported the business wire service.
Mike Manley, chief operating officer of Fiat and Chrysler in Asia and president of the Jeep brand, told Bloomberg, "We're reviewing the opportunities within existing capacity" as well as "should we be localizing the entire Jeep portfolio or some of the Jeep portfolio" to China.
Chrysler builds Jeep SUV models at plants in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. Manley said the firm is in talks with China's Guangzhou Automobile Group Co.

Kentucky Klown Kar, did you ever notice that it's only a manufactured controversy (a nontroversy if you will) and no one cares except birfoons.
Do you know what tautological means, Klown Kar?
Also, not one birfoon has been able to articulate what a Romney win would have to do with birfoons. Other than voting Republican as they would have anyway, what effect have birfoons had on the 2012 election.
Just post the verifiable data and well analyze it together, Kentucky.

Kentucky Klown Kar, did you ever notice that birfoons just made up "evidence" in the absence of the real thing?
Sorry, birfoon, but this is my original screen name. You're the loony toon trying to claim otherwise. Clearly I am the original Grand Birther.
#122678 Nov 3, 2012
Kentucky Loser, you are illiterate and wrong as usual.
I wrote that real news sources have perhaps made mistakes. They then issue retractions and correct the mistake.
WND purposely misleads birfoons. They need to perpetuate the birfoon fantasy so you continue to go to the website and they continue to make advertising revenue.
Do you understand the difference?
