Yeah, I guess that's why they have articles by African-American authors like:
Lloyd Marcus,

and others on their website, RIGHT?
On a teabagger website ,an "author" is a "position of power"?

No, simpleton. More like showing your claim of racism by the "Tea Party" to be PATHETIC, at best. And a bold faced LIE at worst.

"Teabaggers" weren't even AROUND THEN, you simplistic LIEberal. And it is you DEMONRATS that have sent all of our jobs overseas, as well as down south of the border.
Teabaggers and their ilk have been around since McCarthy.

Once people discover what their agenda is, they change their name and try to rebrand themselves.

After George they're trying again with the Tea Party.

Same people.

Same 40 year old war on working middle class Americans.

Thanks to the brilliant teabagger plan of outsourcing our jobs overseas, "free" trade agreements and corporate tax cuts .
We'll all be dealing crack if another teabagger gets elected.
FULL QUESTION:
When Democratic presidential candidates talk about tax breaks for corporations that ship our jobs overseas and tax breaks and subsidies for oil companies, what are they referring to and are they accurate?

FULL ANSWER:
It’s true that Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have associated the transfer of U.S. jobs overseas with tax breaks, or loopholes, for companies that practice off-shoring:

Both candidates are referring to a feature of the U.S. tax code that allows domestic companies to defer taxes on “unrepatriated income.” In other words, revenue that companies earn through their overseas subsidiaries goes untaxed by the IRS as long as it stays off the company’s U.S. books.

But economists, including left-leaning ones, do not agree that eliminating this provision will bring an end to off-shoring. And here’s why: In the U.S., companies are taxed 35 percent on earnings of $10 million to $15 million or on all earnings over $18.3 million. That’s one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, making an overseas move somewhat attractive to companies that wish to avoid the U.S. tax rate. But that’s not the leading reason companies send jobs overseas. According to a 2005 report by the Government Accountability Office, global technological advancement, increased openness of countries such as China and India, the higher education level of foreign workers in technological fields, and the reduced cost per foreign worker are all contributing factors to off-shoring.

We first addressed this popular theme in 2004, when we reported on a John Kerry campaign ad in which he blamed President George W. Bush for providing tax incentives to companies “outsourcing” jobs overseas. At the time we found that such tax breaks, which do exist, pre-dated the Bush administration and that even Democratic-leaning economists did not support the idea that changing the corporate tax code would end the movement of jobs overseas.

November 9, 2003
IN mid-August, Walden W. O'Dell, the chief executive of Diebold Inc., sat down at his computer to compose a letter inviting 100 wealthy and politically inclined friends to a Republican Party fund-raiser, to be held at his home in a suburb of Columbus, Ohio.''I am committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year,'' wrote Mr. O'Dell, whose company is based in Canton, Ohio.
That is hardly unusual for Mr. O'Dell. A longtime Republican, he is a member of President Bush's ''Rangers and Pioneers,'' an elite group of loyalists who have raised at least $100,000 each for the 2004 race.
Judging from Federal Election Commission data, at least eight million people will cast their ballots using Diebold machines next November. That is 8 percent of the number of people who voted in 2000, and includes all voters in the states of Georgia and Maryland and those in various counties of California, Virginia, Texas, Indiana, Arizona and Kansas.
Some people find Mr. O'Dell's pairing of interests -- as voting-machine magnate and devoted Republican fund-raiser -- troubling.
George W. Bush was elected President by carrying Ohio in a close race. With 155,337 provisional ballots still uncounted, according to unofficial returns.
Past Conspiracy Theories

Remember the swirl of stories around Diebold Election Systems and its CEO, Walden O’Dell, in 2004? O’Dell was an Ohio resident who held a fundraiser at his home for President Bush and wrote a fundraising letter promising to help “Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.” Some took him too literally, claiming that Bush “stole” Ohio’s electoral votes and the 2004 election.

But even the liberal New York Times editorial board waved off that conspiracy theory as nonsense. There were some glitches, as expected, with the machines on Election Day, but, as the Times wrote, there was “no evidence of vote theft or errors on a large scale.”

That might be true if not for the fact of Commie Care expanding the amount of people that will be negatively effected by the failed program throughout the next year. The hate of DumBama will likely grow instead of the other way around.

Of course it wasn't.
Teabaggers supported and defended the NSA and their practices until Obama became president.
Then they were outraged.

You know, that's so funny, because remember how the liberals were so offended by the NSA when Bush was in office, and now, hardly a word.

You are motivated to swallow everything your steam room buddies put into your mouth.
I'd go with the politicians, myself.
You have not done a thing for this country- not lifted a finger- it seems to those who are ranting right wing pejoratives by persons whose IQ don't reach the 80s that most politicians are motivated by service to the community.
Do let us all know the minute you get off your knees and make your way down to the serving side of the soup kitchen.
You really are a lying little shyte. I served in the military for four years. I've made numerous contributions to safety of this country while you sat at home on your fat azz with you finger in your mouth. Your IQ is in the single digits so you have no call to be denigrating anyone elses intelligence. A cabbage has more intelligence that you do, Aunt Jemima. Seems to me that your the one on here who's always talking about the gay lifestyle. You must have a lot of practice at it. MORON!

Unfortunately you are wrong. There are still a lot of people that are happy they voted for him. Again..... the uninformed voter.
What counts when it comes to running for office? How you look, how well you speak, how you dress or hug your family, very little in what you believe.
In that department, the Democrats got themselves a ringer. I don't foresee another one coming along as Hillary is less than moving. Time will tell. Every day, more people are hurt by Commie Care, so maybe that will wake the public up.
well a lot of people are ashamed they voted for him and feel stupid.those are the peoplecwho act happy.the other people are welfare lovers.then you have the ones who push for amnesty, coz they want their family here.but pretty much we know he is an idiot.hillary will never happen thank god.
