You chickenshyte punk.
I asked you for a cite for your slanderous characterizations of what "the TEA Party wants."
You failed to dos o - and merely spew MORE slanderous characterizations of what "the TEA Party wants."
You're a scum-sucking liar. A troll.
Our campaign to educate voters is having an impact and Liberals are getting nervous. Efforts and support of organizations like TheTeaParty.net is giving a voice to the previously silent majority. A few words for President Obama, Harry Reid, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters: The Tea Party has not gone "straight to hell" and we are coming in November to finish the job we started in 2010 to take back America!

November 2012 may be THE most important election in our lifetimes. Never before has the need been greater for individuals to stand up against a government that has forgotten who they were elected to represent.

The tea party movement would not have been necessary but for spineless politicians who refuse to make the needed choices to reign in spending, focusing rather on what will win them the next election. We have taken names and it's time those determined to sell out America are removed from office.

Many in the media and Liberal movement would love to declare the tea party dead! They underestimated our strength in 2010 and they will again in November.

Help us prove them wrong and defeat Barack Obama's liberal agenda

Cutting deficits doesn't work. It's not working here, it's not working in Europe. It's never worked to create jobs.

We need to start investing in jobs. It's the reality-based way economics work. Demand side economics.

Corporation's are sitting on trillions of cash. They don't need wealthy investor's money. They need buyers, consumers, a strong, working middle class.

You can't create anything by deficit reduction.

now we have continued high unemployment with an unsustainable debt level, thanks to obama spending almost a trillion dollars not to stimulate the economy, but to payoff his supporters under the guise of stimulus.

add in the fact that he spent over a year ramming through the most despised piece of legislation in generations, obamacare,

and basically you have a picture of why obama is not only the worst president in the history of america, but one of the worst leaders in the history of the planet.

and we all have the corrupt media to thank for this disaster as they have continually disregarded any semblance of fairness to continually back the liberal politicians and obama.

and that thrill going down their legs is our country going down the tubes thanks to their corruption.

i can just imagine how many more front page hit stories they are going to be writing against romney in the future.

Bill, you are a loser and you are assisting America to become a loser nation. You are a prime example of why this nation is in gridlock and will fail at the end of year to come to a deal on taxes, spending or the debt ceiling.
You are just like the idiots in Europe, all want and no give. No solutions from you, only blame, blame, blame and only pointed in one direction.
Is it the President or Congress who is at fault Bill? And lets not forget, how much is being spent this year and who controls the House?
Come on moron, you are showing you have no answers lol.

1. Do you really not know why President Obama did not veto a Bill that was already enacted into law?
*****(No it was approved by Obobo and I gave you back up for that proof of mine. I even showed you what the demolosers spent after it was approved. Yes well above what was signed by yours truly Obama! If you recall OBOBO had signed the stimulus nearly 1 trillion dollars. Remember? And it was supposed to save jobs. NOw the idiot in the WH is claiming that congress didn't pass more spending!! It's all over the news today. Seriously he said "if this stimulus passes? I promise to put all those Americans back to work" quote on quote!)*****

2. In early January, before President Obama became President, the CBO predicted that the "bush" budget would result in a deficit of over $1 Trillion.
*****(Prove it with facts to back your theory)*****

3. The real question is why didn't bush veto the budget.
*****( Once again I gave you proof of what Bush asked for. I even showed you who signed it "obobo" and who was in control of the spending? Demolosers which spent way more than what was asked for and passed. Yes the dems surpassed what was signed for!!!!!)****
once again you are lying!

4. None of this does anything to substantiate whether too much, now enough or an amount just right has been and continues to be spent.
If you want to hold President Obama accountable from day one, fine. Just admit that bush is 100% responsible for the 2001 recession, 9-11, the housing bubble and the financial collapse.

*****(NO I will not admit to that cause it is not true. The recession was end result of the DOTCOM bubble burst and you know it. I showed you proof a few years ago. But you once again refuse to accept that your party is crap! And nothing but liars like yourself.
Now how is Bush responsible for 9/11??? After all it was Clinton who coward from responding to the World trade center bombing the first time. And how is it Bush's fault for dems passing all the spending once THEY TOOK CONTROL OF BOTH THE HOUSE AND SENATE? They out spent the previous 6 years in 4 years. Easily surpassing that. Yet either you really are a moron or you do not know how to read? Or you don't care how dishonest you really are. I am guessing that you are dishonest.

But I am already on record that bush either was not responsible or is only minimally to blame for any of them. Now you want to claim that????? LOL for over 3 years all you did was blame Bush. Now that I show you facts with back up to support spending you once again back pedal. You must be good at dodge ball cause you sure dodge every fact thrown at you.

Of course he did sign the first budget to authorize $2 Tril in spending and the first budget authorize $3 Tril in spending and was the first President in history to have a $1 Tril deficit projected for his budget.

*****( show your back up for your theory!!!! All I see is talk no back up to support anything you say.)******
So just face it. You are a liar and so is the demoloser party done finished end of story.

A few more months and Obobo will be history and go down as the worst president in history.

Remember you even claimed "the stimulus will work".

Luckily, the vast majority of American parents and grand parents won't buy you flawed premise. You see, when you care about our legacy to our own children you don't Californicate them by burying them in massive unsustainable Debt.

Only you Calif people are cruel and cold heared enough to do that to your kids.
Ignorance is not bliss. Your State already has a half a TRILLION in State Debt. What a vile thing to do to the next generation! Overpromising ENTITLEMENTS is not Stimulating anything but greed for other peoples hard earned $$$.

Obama may promise to take some night courses at DC area Community Colleges to familiarize himself with Private Sector employment and Business 101. He can't make up for his lack of experience but at least he can get some book learnin on the subject.

Cutting deficits is not woking simply because for all the jibber-jabber, NO ONE'S ACTUALLY DONE IT YET!! Not here, not in Europe. All this blather about austerity in Europe is just so much noise, because NOBODY EXCEPT THE GERMANS have yet summoned up the will to DO IT. The Germans did, and they're doing just fine, thank you, when they're not being dragged down by their parasitic partners in the EU.

And it's not about cutting deficits, it's simply about CUTTING GOVERNMENT SPENDING back to within long-term sustainable limits as a % of GDP. Do that, and deficits take care of themselves.

Corporations and individuals aren't "sitting on piles of cash." They're looking at the massive overhang of bad debt that's still sloshing around the system looking for a sucker to eat it, or an corrupt Government to bail it out with taxpayer money. And they are de-leveraging as fast as they can - EXACTLY what the economy requires in a recession caused by excessive financial leverage in the first place. And it's EXACTLY what the federal government ISN'T doing, because it's run by an incompetent POTUS and a permanent professional political class that's only in it FOR THEMSELVES.

The economy needs a positive business environment helped by a federal government that is incentivizing new investment in growth and employment, not waging class warfare with talk of punitive taxes on the 'eevul rich' lumbering American businesses with even higher labor cost structures with goo-goo social meddling like ObamaScare.

BTW, can the drivel about the "eevul rich". No one cares about the rich. They always end up screwing themselves with greed. And at what magically minuscule point will the "rich" start investing in America? Isn't that how your trickle down plan was supposed to work?

Infantile? Sure, joe. Spoken like a true California wanker.

And "No one cares about the rich??" Get serious, joe. The present Incompetent-in-Chief certainly says you're dead wrong. He's betting his entire political future on the presumption that there are enough Useful Idiots out there that care about soaking the rich - he sure thinks he can get re-elected on the back of a class warfare campaign of BS like the "Buffett Rule" and "eat the Rich!" rhetoric.

How's the People's Democratic State of California doing, by the way, joe? You know, land of all those extra-smart economic geniuses who have run California's economy and finances so far into the ditch they can't even get an accurate measure of how deep the hole they've dug themselves into is.

The same geniuses who keep sending lefty idiots like Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi to Washington so they can bring down an entire nation into the same bottomless pit they're driven California into.

Here's some advice, joe - you might want to consider the absence of credibility any California progressive has on matters economic and financial before you start lecturing others on their economic "naivete."

You just come off as ridiculous.

Get back to us when Sacramento has done what they need to do to save California from being the first State in US history to go bankrupt. And good luck relying on Jerry Moonbeam and the same Conspiracy of Dunces that drove the State into the ditch in the first place.

It's not?
You post as if foolishness were a virtue.
You give every appearance of wanting to be taken seriously, but when you post these ridiculous rants about denying firmly established constitutional free speech rights to corporate persons without having thought through even the most trivial of the questions involved, and showing no embarrassment over your thoroughly embarrassing posts, it's impossible to take you as anything more than a foolish troll.
<quoted text>
Useless and foolish notion. Multinational corporations have "headquarters" and home offices and pay taxes in every country in which they operate.
<quoted text>
I'm sure you do.
Instead, I will simply pants you and your intellectually bankrupt notions by noting the obvious truth that corporate persons, "foreign" (wtf that means ...) or otherwise, have the same free speech rights that the Constitution affords FOREIGN ALIENS on US soil. These aliens, with no right to vote, still have every Constitutional right to "participate in our political process" by saying whatever they like, buying ads on TV to say whatever they like, and doing all those things that our Constitution protects as Free Speech.
Or are you, OKB, pressing to strip foreign persons of their free speech rights simply because they are aliens with equally virulent prejudice with which you wish to strip "foreign" corporate persons (even though you cannot even define for us what that is)?
Didn't think so. Hell, you're probably cheering that corrupt and treasonous excuse for a USAG, Holder, for ACTUALLY PREVENTING FLORIDA FROM PUTTING AN END TO VOTER FRAUD BY ILLEGAL ALIENS IN THEIR STATE, right?
http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/06/01/holder-d...
First, you use a lot of words to say you don't have a definition which suits your purpose.

Second, the courts have ruled that foreign people on US soil can not contribute to a campaign.

So what is that definition for a foreign corporation again?

You have yet to agree that taxes should be set at 18% of GDP to go along with your spending plan. Face it, you would never decrease the debt either.

God your rants are rediculous. This whole speil about "punishing the successful" over taxes is a bogus dog bone.

Tell us Teddy, if we do not tax the successful (people that can afford to pay taxes), do we tax the unsuccessful? Do we ust not tax anyone?

I said before, I could go for a flat tax provided it applied to 100% of all income regardless of source to include corporate income.
