"Had a conversation with the reporter at The Herald. We talked of the evolution of the Will County Tea Party, not the extinction of it. It is comical to see them take your conversation and to tweak it to fit their narrative. This is what became of the conversation. Go figure.- Tim Kraulidis"

Soooo, he who laughs last, does'nt really need to laugh at all. Sorry Four-More, you were wrong again. But I cut you slack, you were suckered into the false story.

Be careful what you ask for you just might get it. The only problem is that you cant or wont accept what is happening. Keep the hardline and see where you end up. That is out in the cold. Out with the old and in with the new. You and your message are falling on deaf ears, your movement is falling apart. The proof is all around you. You think that because a couple of like minded people post with you on this website that all is well. Keep up the good work, your candidates are fairing so well. LOL.
Conservatism is no good. No way. They want jobs, values, morals, fiscal responsibility, a strong economy and military. Thats not good for us. We need to hand out birth control, open abortion clinics all over, more entitlements, support gays, legalize dope, end democracy and capitalism, demonize wealth and business, cripple our defence, Persecute religion, create a big welfare state, support radical nations. Create a large centralized socialist government. Thats tbe direction to move this country forward. HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR EUTOPIA. Its has not gone over well in the rest of tbe world in case you haven't
noticed.

At least it will let us off the hook as the world's policeman. I tired of paying for all of Bush's wars. After all, didn't President Obama win the Nobel Peace Prize? I wonder if they included his personal kill list?

And you have proved my point for me once again. Its your rhetoric that is harming the party. You should be paid by the democrats to keep pushing out your crap. Its because of you and your type of radical say anything off the top of your head BS that we get slaughtered in elections. In case you had not noticed, we just got our arse handed to us. We lost the presidency to Obama. Thanks again you are the exact type of far right extremist that needs to be exorcised from the republican party.

Here is your response Neighbor so choke on it. Who cares if the will county tea party is over or renaming itself. You have failed to see the big picture, because you are so damn dumb and blind to what is right in front of you. Obama won, and people were turned off by the extreme rights words and actions. You want more proof, tea party candidates got their arses kicked in worse than even regular republican candidates. Get it. Wake up you damn old fool. Keep peddling your garbage and muck it up with clowns like Professor. You cant see the harm you have done the party. But the funny thing is that republican strategists and party leaders can and did. And they are speaking out against your brand of far right rhetoric. I am going to use your own words against you. You keep on shuffling those deck chairs on the Tea Party Titanic, the ship is sinking and I mean fast. Good riddance to the likes of you and your cohorts.

Does that clear it up for you yet. You and Professor have fun. You are better for the democrats than any thing else they trot out there. Hell even Obama won, that says it all for me.

Ahhhh Name calling by Hold-On... He's back. Proved wrong once again, and reverting to name calling. Home sweet home for Hold-On once again.

Ya know, if you ever went to just one TEA Party meeting, those right wing folks you accuse members of would not be in sight. All you'll find is a bunch of clean cut, polite, curtious American patriots. People who unlike you, actually got off the couch to support what they believe in. Some really cute women too, I might add. You've been watching too much Mathews & Maddow my friend. Still, I savor having proved you wrong once again! The truth can be so sweet. <Just say'n

First of all you have never proved me wrong. And more importantly I am not upset. It was a humorous post, mainly funny because it is so true. It spells out your "playbook" on here to a T. And I thank you for being so predictable, especially in sticking to the playbook for your response.
And I finished the laundry yesterday. My wife just wonders why I waste my time jabbering on here when I could be washing the floors. So now its on to the Swiffer wet jet.
I'd bet that later on YOU will definitely be getting a little sumtn sumtn *wink*

It's a shrewd, brilliant man that understands and practices "choreplay" ;)

Hold-On stop acting like a sissy. Come on, zip your pants in the front, put your shoulders back stand up like a man at least. You are embarrasing yourself in front of everybody again. You were "proven" wrong once again, own it like a man. Your sissy name calling, squirming, and whining is rediculous at this point. Now Cowboy up. No biggie, I cut you slack because the paper deceived you with a false story. But now your crying like a little girl again... Just stop that. Man up.

You really are such a sexist pig. Your tired old insults just prove it over and over again. You are "embarrasing" yourself in front of everybody again.

Awe Professor, he's harmless enough. We'll keep schooling him into manhood and literacy. I mean, how far can you get in life being like Hold-On? He embarrases himself out here "almost" every day, but once in 20, he say's something ok. He's still got a chance I think. He's probably thinking about every word I said, and tormented about being wrong yet again.

This is a slap in face and more insulting than the the tea party. The Plainfield Township Republican Organization is filled with fringe social conservatives. It's the number one reason I didn't join them. Now they are going to claim their are a fiscal party even though all their local elected candidates raise taxes and fees and fill their own pockets. This will be brought up in April
