I've been trying my darndest not to follow the supposedly "grassroots" right-wing tea party revolt (organized by the likes of Dick Armey, Fox News and the Club for Growth) against dear leader Comrade Obama, but it's too amusing to completely ignore. .

Mr. Bill - stop breathing please, you are a waste of good air and are causing global warming.
I look forward to crushing your little liberal body, and you won't even see me coming because your head is so far up your rear that you can't even hear. Have a great and hopefully VERY short life.

You are such a dope. The Nation is far more patriotic then 18 Limbaughs, O'Reilleys, Bushes, Cheneys, or other draft dodgeing chicken hawks you'd care to line up.
True, the Nation is left-of center; but neo-con extremism has ruined our country, and is as threadbare as your phony red-baiting.
You are a fart in the wind. I hope you learn to think someday.
That means a lot coming from someone like you.

Teabagging is a slang term for the act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth[1] or on or around the face (including the top of the head) of another person, often in a repeated in-and-out motion as in irrumatio. The practice vaguely resembles dipping a tea bag into a cup of tea.[2][3]

Teabagging is also an erotic activity used within the context of BDSM and male dominance, with a dominant man teabagging his submissive partner, either a woman or a man, as one variation of facesitting and/or as a means of inflicting erotic humiliation.

All they do is lie and entertain idiots who actually think they are telling them the truth.
Fox News would shudder in fear from the "Fairness Doctrine" being re-instated.... boy do I wish legally News media outlets had to report on the truth...

Bridges and roads. Education. Regulations so we can have confidence in our financial institutions. The entire federal government was destroyed under bush so the entire thing has to be rebuilt.

I suppose you do oppose any efforts to restore confidence in out election systems. As long as your precious Diebold can ignore the voters and select the election winners all by themselves I guess you would be very happy.

Come to Minnesota, we have some bridges you can try to drive across.

What a moron. FOX's rating out shine CNN and MSNBC combined you loon. That is from INDEPENDENT ratings companies. So your reasoning is that the majority of cable watchers are idiots. Not what the advertisers think there doodle. The more you moronic liberal hacks post just shows the intellegence level of the left, and that's basement level.

You did not give me one actual project that is started or finished, just spin from the Obummer camp. You have no proof where the money went. Please use facts and not opinions when trying to make a point. Oop, sorry, you'll need to google the word facts before you begin so you will know what your searching for.

What are you smoking?
You lying neo-conservatives wrecked the economy; trashed our National Honor; and were beaten like dogss in the election. Nobody likes paying taxes, but it is our patriotic duty.
What the stupid lying neo-conservatives always forget is that our nation was not founded as a oplace to not pay taxes; it was founded on freedom; including NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. That does not mean NO TAXES FOR THE RICH.
You should actually read the article.
First thing dickweed, I'm no NeoCon. I am the original article built on the principles of small government, strong military, aggressive foreign policy and states rights here at home. Strong Family values that allow me the parent to decide whats best for my children not a village. Our Nation was founded above all on self reliance. No one has a problem with paying their "fair" share of taxes. We do have a problem with paying a disproportionate amount and then having the crooks in congress give millions to partisan organizations like ACORN and others without our consent. It is our children who will suffer most by this administrations unparalleled spending spree and that is what we are protesting. Now that Bush opened the vault doors for Hussein hopefully the Republican party will put the Neo-Cons and their liberal spending out to pasture and return to the Reagan Conservatives roots that brought this country to its role as the worlds only superpower. Now quit your whining Bill and go out and look for a real job.

I love the article. It's wrong, but I just love it! As a conservative I can definately say that we will never have another inexperienced president. I'm also not saying Bush is innocent or that either party is soley to blame. We're just screwed either way.

I don't get his communist perspective, however. Unless you've lived in a truely communist country and shat in a hole in floor and had a job which paid the same salery the local baker earns...which, consiquently is the same a truck driver, seamstress and the plumber earn, then I think he should shut it...and that's putting it lightly.

Because the "one network" that covered it was the one that sponsored it.

Funny how revisionist history plays out.

You do know that your hero Reagan voted in 1986 to greatly expand the Earned Income Tax Credit, which re-distributed wealth to taxpayers making $20,000 or less who paid NO TAXES. Not only that, but "Comrade Reagan" called the EITC “the best anti-poverty, the best pro-family,
the best job-creation measure to come out of Congress.”

Now, exactly how is that sensibility consistent with the common GOP mantra that "socialists want to re-distribute wealth". I'll give you a hint, it isn't. Unless you want to count Dutch as a socialist.

Revisionist? First of all you have it all wrong. Presidents don't Vote, they either sign a bill or they veto it. Many times having to take the bad to ensure the overall good. He also gave amnesty to millions of illegals. I didn't say he was perfect, just far superior to any of the other leaders we have had in the last hundred or so years.

LoL.... smart guy... It's not MY problem.

I'm not the one who is brainwashed.

My issue, is when organizations that claim to be news outlets lie to the public, im only here presenting facts.... Fox News is NOT an American Network... They are not even from this side of the hemisphere! They should not be considered American at all..

It's almost as dumb as buying Dell computers thinking that you are supporting an American company.

If you choose to believe them, that is YOUR problem.... I'm only here to put the truth out on the internet.

Learn about "media studies" and how television / media has evolved into the beast that it is today... It is rather an interesting history. Every person living today should know about it. It is history..

Think Advertising Dollars and you barley even scratch the surface from there.....

Sultan.... I can totally feel what your talking about, but I believe this is where you fall into a trap..

You can not have "small government" AND a "strong military" AND "aggressive foreign policy" .... all together...

This is the trap that Bush fell into.

The expansion of Homeland Security and military contractors has grown the Federal government by 2.2 million employees since 2002...

The USA Federal Government is the LARGEST employer in the world... by an approximate 14 million people (this includes military, social programs, AND contract workers)...

The 2nd largest employer is Wall-Mart with an approx 2 million employees.......

To put things into perspective, since 2002, GW Bush expanded the size of the Federal Government by approx the size of the largest free market employer within 7 years BECAUSE of Homeland Security, the Military, and Security....

If you want a strong military and international security.......... you are also asking for a LARGE Fed Government and an EXTREMELY large bill to pay when it comes to paying taxes.

You can't have both.
It's just not possible.... One is the direct opposite of the other..
