Your crap getting a little hot? When will your bio/fantasy be released? When will you be providing a source for the baseball championship you say Wake won when you were captain? Did you not say in that lie that your major league baseball career was ruined when you slid into home with the winning run? Those Circus Circus show girls you date, you must have pictures of when you regaled them at Red Lobster? Can you tell us again about how you cared for your brother for 9 years while you were moving up the ranks in the US Army? Have you ever advised where your 3 1/2 or is it 4 homes are located? Just general area? Do you have meetings lined up so important political persons, some close to president nobama, so you can give them advice?

Poor old senile Eed, your comprehension level keeps dropping lower and lower at some point it's gotta level out? Let's see if we can point out a few in this latest attempt at saving what's left of your fantasy world. First I have never said that I was the captain, next lie ... "what I said was whatever chance I had at a career in baseball was ruined while sliding into second base and broke both bones in my right leg". Lie number three, I have never mentioned Circus Circus..Damn Eed they are adding up fast.Lie number four, I cared for my youngest son for 9 years until he succumbed to cancer, so you see dumbazz there is a reason you are in that facility and being tube feed. By the way moron, i'm sure you are aware that the Dems now control the top five position in the state of Virginia for the first time in many years...So do us all a favor and suffer in silence ...LIAR...Maybe next I will come to your state and check in your tavern just to watch your lying azz squirm.

1) Yes, you opted a terrorist attack to name your group. No wonder you honor a man who shut down the government and cost the economy 24 billion dollars just to try to make a point.

2) The act of Tea Bagging is not limited to gay sex. Galt's wife's nickname in high school was "Lipton".

There is no Oriental box to check. There are Asian boxes though and some more specific but no Oriental, there has never been an Oriental box because that term is nebulous.

That was exactly the point he was trying to make you clueless twit! These businesses would be able to operate without the educational opportunities and infrastructure that government provides.
Here's his statement;
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If youíve got a business -- you didnít build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didnít get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
"The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we donít do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.
"So we say to ourselves, ever since the founding of this country, you know what, there are some things we do better together. Thatís how we funded the G.I. Bill. Thatís how we created the middle class. Thatís how we built the Golden Gate Bridge or the Hoover Dam. Thatís how we invented the Internet. Thatís how we sent a man to the moon. We rise or fall together as one nation and as one people, and thatís the reason Iím running for President -- because I still believe in that idea. Youíre not on your own, weíre in this together."
But every time the President has proposed programs that would upgrade and improve our roads, bridges, electric grids and water systems the Republicans have blocked them even though they would create jobs and make commerce more efficient.
You're the one who's totally disconnected from reality.

True but it's a learning experience.

The real story is that Asian students of mixed race are indeed skipping the Asian box but not for the reasons dmfk stated. It has nothing to do with affirmative action or African Americans working in the admission departments but because they don't want to compete or be considered with the super high achieving Asians. The subject of his story, a miss Olmsted, is half Taiwanese and half Norwegian and checked the white box while writing in multi racial on her Harvard admissions application.

Some lying racist pos changed the story around to make it all about blacks.

BTW she could have gotten is on looks alone.

She Did It Again !!! W O W ! Australia says NO -- This will be the second Time Julia Gillard has done this! She sure isn't backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen. A breath of fresh air to see someone lead with guts and determination. Australian Prime Minister does it again!! The whole world needs a leader like this! Prime Minister Julia Gillard - Australia Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT... Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.''This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.''We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!''Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you,then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.''We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.''This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.''If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country that accepted you.' NOTE: IF we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada & USA, WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths. If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know...

How quickly you forget the nearly $1T stimulus bill that was passed in 2009 that only served to pay back donors but was referred to as "shovel ready jobs" and in Obama's own words "pass this bill and unemployment will not go above 8%". Instead we got Solyndra, birth control funding and unemployment was far above 8% for the next 3 years.

Whether it be leading the nation, managing the executive branch, telling the truth or working with others the results have been an unmitigated failure.

Why the left hates the Tea Party
Significance of the Tea Party influence
The Tea Party began in commemoration of the historic act that took place in Boston Harbor where in protest to the Royal Crownís newest tax that had been imposed upon the 13 Colonies. The unpopular tea tax among many earlier taxes that were destroying prosperity among Americans as King George of Great Britain sought to impose his will upon the 13 Colonies while harvesting their productivity. Dressed as Indian warriors, colonists raided Britsh Ships and dumped tons of tea overboard The draconian influence of the British Monarch over the fledgling American colonies has been replaced today with big government agenda of the Obama White House.
History returns
In 2009 as Americans began to realize that not only was Capitol Hill violating the US Constitution with impunity, but was using record deficit spending to socially engineer this nation into a socialist society. As the Tea Party became increasingly popular and politically influential the more Democrats attacked them with their false allegations. Such ridiculous narratives accused conservatives and the Tea Party as wanting dirty air and water, not caring about womenís rights, and being racist-the very fruit of the Democratic Partyís distortion of the truth.
The premise of the Tea Party
What does the Tea Party advocate? What does it stand for? A survey on the demographics of Tea Party members showed that they had above average income and education and were more likely to be entrepreneurs than their Democrat and liberal counterparts. So Tea Party members are clearly more self-reliant. The Tea Party supports the US government operating under the original intentions of our forefathers utilizing Constitutional principles. Those principles are limited government, relying on the private sector as the economic engine of the US, and using responsible fiscal practices that do not lead to high deficits based upon the funding of federally funded radical causes and welfare state lawmaking.
US media attacks Tea Party
Of course the Democrats are going to attack the Tea Party as it is the very welfare state spending they use to buy votes as well as fund radical and often anti-American sentiment. Unfortunately, the low information voter will buy into the predominantly leftist US mediaís spin on any and all issues where they parrot the White House than undertake actual journalism and research the facts as they are inherently in the tank for the Obama administration. Never in history has there been a time when the US media has become the literal equivalent of the Soviet Style state controlled news agencies known as Tass and Pravda during the ďCold WarĒ era when propaganda was their only purpose.
The hated influence of the Tea Party
In the 2010 mid election primaries, the Democrats were stunned with the biggest defeat they had seen in more than 80 years as Democrats lost 600 nationwide seats in various levels of government office across the nation.. Why? Thanks to President Obamaís failures even with media bias, his radical administration had provoked the anger of the American people, but the Democratic propaganda machinery began its inevitable false narratives of contrived lies. In order to discredit the Tea Partyís influence upon Washington and the GOP as being extremist when this hasty generalization could not be more wrong.

Party division

The Tea Party was even attacked by the Republican establishment, the RINOís (Republicans In Name Only), moderate Republicans, and Democratic plants who deplore the core values of conservatives and traditional Republicans as self-reliance is the very enemy of Democrat policy! In a nation where the private sector generates a healthy economy, opportunities for employees, and economic growth there is no room for the big government, massive regulatory agenda, and high deficit spending targeted at social engineering programs that only create more dependency just to buy votes. As government regulations prevent the drilling and recovery of natural gas all over America, a clean burning fuel, only the gas and oil production on private property escapes the imposition of federal regulatory shut-downs.

Big government discourages free enterprise

Only the private sector produces as opposed to government programs especially who President Obama refused to sign permits for the Keystone XL Pipeline. This pipeline that would establish a low cost and secure form of energy distribution, a project that would have created an estimated 40,000 jobs while providing local tax revenues for all state and county jurisdictions hosting the pipeline was not permitted by the President. Why, because Democrats get no political mileage out of successful private projects that generate cheap energy and economic growth if it is not provided by the federal government itself.

This is only one of many suppressed private sector generated projects that would create more jobs and prove to Americans that the government is not necessary for everything we need. When government power is used to intentionally suppress private employment, commerce, and growth then you can bet that it will be the typical statist, collectivists, and leftists who would rather force us all to submit to a welfare state that guarantees government crumbs for everyone while suppressing individual effort and talent while refusing to reward those who are more productive. Under their government created utopia there is no incentive excel or work harder because the lazy and wards of the state will get just as much as the affluent are punished for their success.

Ultimate intention

The Tea Party echoes the sentiments of our forefathers who penned the Constitution and guaranteed that all US Citizens would not have their right to determine their own destiny denied by big intrusive government that serves only to perpetuate itself at the cost of stifling the very private sector it competes with through creating more costly infrastructure and bureaucracy. Such organizations as the Tea Party will always be at odds with the leftist element that simply wonít allow such threatening concepts as individual freedom and independence to exist without constant attack.
