I thought the Tea Party has done to much to their own reputation to still have people using it as a title.
I still do not understand Tea Party Logic,

The government needs continuous amounts of money to help the nation get out of this deficit, so they want to hoard money and limit the one of the few ways the government can receive funds (taxes)

The Tea Party is up against everyone who hates this country.

The Tea Party vs liberalism
The Tea Party vs socialism
The Tea Party vs the Communist party
The Tea Party vs the islamofascist party
The Tea Party vs the anti-American party

These groups are comprised of atheists, homosexual activists, and the feminists.

These anti-American movements, headed by Hussein Obama, have allies in Iran, China, Venezuela, Castro, and the continent of Africa.

NATIONAL PATRIOTS - IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP !

This corrupt government is after your free speech, your firearms, and your religion.
THEN they'll have you by the gonads.

Welfare recipients, which includes the 35 MILLION illegal Mexican, have absolutely nothing to loose.
As long as they are fully sustained/supported by YOUR TAXES, they have no reason to bitch.
They are satisfied like a pig who just ate its fill.

To all True Patriots,

Yes it is all one large conspiracy only you are aware of. Perhaps evidence would help support your case over exaggerated accusations.

Not really. The western 3rd of the state is pretty conservative(thus the whackjob Steve King), but the state as a whole is pretty moderate with relatively moderate.

Most of us are sick and damn tired of paying so much in taxes that not much is left for our families. We're tired of people who are on welfare, have three grown children with children in the house who are also on welfare. We're tired of illegal aliens getting free housing, food, education (including free lunches and breakfast). We're tired of pork in bills for items the government will never use on deals that congressmen and senators make for a vote. We're tired of our money going to support countries that harbor terroists who wish us harm and much more.

More taxes, yeah that's the answer, NOT>

The FALGAFT Plan is also something that Bachmann should reveal in Iowa if she is to be truly embraced by the citizens of that state.
Let her show the courage of her convictions on the economy and when she plans to adopt this Peoples Vehicle.

The last resident of Cabrini Green in Chicago -- schedululed to be demolished -- finally moved out last month. She was a single mother with EIGHT kids, and living on welfare. True dat.

Meanwhile, the corrupt Kenyan stooge, as an Illinois senator, made millions for his corrupt cronies and left his district in ruins. Yet another failure in the history of this pathetically corrupt, lying radical's history of failure.

Grim proving ground for Obama's housing policy
http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/20...

"At a dilapidated Chicago housing project, some see problems with Obama's favored housing policy.

As a state senator, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee coauthored an Illinois law creating a new pool of tax credits for developers. As a US senator, he pressed for increased federal subsidies. And as a presidential candidate, he has campaigned on a promise to create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund that could give developers an estimated $500 million a year.

But a Globe review found that thousands of apartments across Chicago that had been built with local, state, and federal subsidies - including several hundred in Obama's former district - deteriorated so completely that they were no longer habitable.

Grove Parc and several other prominent failures were developed and managed by Obama's close friends and political supporters. Those people profited from the subsidies even as many of Obama's constituents suffered. Tenants lost their homes; surrounding neighborhoods were blighted.
...

Among those tied to Obama politically, personally, or professionally are:

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama's presidential campaign and a member of his finance committee. Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.

Allison Davis, a major fund-raiser for Obama's US Senate campaign and a former lead partner at Obama's former law firm. Davis, a developer, was involved in the creation of Grove Parc and has used government subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,500 units in Chicago, including a North Side building cited by city inspectors last year after chronic plumbing failures resulted in raw sewage spilling into several apartments.

Antoin "Tony" Rezko, perhaps the most important fund-raiser for Obama's early political campaigns and a friend who helped the Obamas buy a home in 2005. Rezko's company used subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,000 apartments, mostly in and around Obama's district, then refused to manage the units, leaving the buildings to decay to the point where many no longer were habitable.

Campaign finance records show that six prominent developers - including Jarrett, Davis, and Rezko - collectively contributed more than $175,000 to Obama's campaigns over the last decade and raised hundreds of thousands more from other donors. Rezko alone raised at least $200,000, by Obama's own accounting.

One of those contributors, Cecil Butler, controlled Lawndale Restoration, the largest subsidized complex in Chicago, which was seized by the government in 2006 after city inspectors found more than 1,800 code violations.

Butler and Davis did not respond to messages. Rezko is in prison; his lawyer did not respond to inquiries."

The liberal media has been trying to define the TEA Party since it became a movement about two years ago. The letters stand for "Taxed Enough Already." Nanny Pelosi referred to them as "astro-turf" which is presumably the opposite of a legitimate grassroots campaign.

Efforts have been made to paint them as a racist group formed to oppose the president because he is biracial. There have been accusations of violent and inciteful speech and threats made against important people. It was reported, but never proven, that TEA party members spit upon and called out racial epithets at the Democratic majority as they paraded, with Nanny at the helm, slegehammer in hand, in triumpal procession in honor of the signing of the Health Care Bill.

In spite of the dismissive attitude of minority leader Nanny, a continuous litany of diatribes from various political pundits, and disparaging and sometimes hostile "reporting" and "op-eds," the movement has not disappeared. In fact, the 2010 election showed that there are a goodly number of Americans whose views parallel, at least somewhat, the TEA Party platform.

In our area, two TEA Party supported congressmen defeated the incumbants, Democrats who had goose-stepped along with Nanny as she pushed for Cap 'n Tax and the Health Care Bill. TEA party candidates won a surprising number of races, enough for the Republican Party to think it should co-opt them. It will be interesting to see who is co-opted by whom.

Michelle Bachman is an experienced legislator who has taken the lead in shaping the TEA Party agenda in the House. She has invited Justice Alito and former Judge Napolitano to instruct the new House members on the US Constitution which they have vowed to uphold. Most of the rest of Congress appear to be quite unfamiliar with the document.

I am not sure if Bachman wants to run for President. Only she knows that. However, she may be testing the waters for herself, or simply getting the message out. The taxes we pay are designed to put us in a holding pattern no matter how much we earn.

As wages (in what jobs there are) increase, our tax burden increases proportionately on every level. Our gross pay is a comforting figure; our net pay is dismal, after every governmental level is finished pilfering it. Most people are in agreement, at least, in this regard. Now, if the demand for "civil discourse" is met, we the people might start looking into forcing our elected officials to find solutions... and these cannot include more taxes or more insane borrowing and spending.

The TEA Party is not a threat to anyone; it is a movement to restore sanity in Washington and end our humiliating dependency on the good will of those who would benefit from our demise as a nation.

Yeah..go after poor people and hungry kids, but ignore fat cats that use every trick in the book to bilk the government out of it's fair share. Jesus Christ. You cons pisse and moaned how high your taxes were going to go up once Obama was elected, but yet the overwhelming majority of America hasn't seen that happen. You also didn't seem to have any problem in going to Iraq to wage an illegal war because your taxes were going to Halliburton, not families. Speaking of "pork", I'm surprised that you didn't complain about Tea-Party politicians who ran against earmarks, only to change their minds after they got into office.(oh...wait..no I'm not)

There you have it folks. The Conservative definition of "good character" and being against "hateful tendencies" is to attack peoples weight, ethnicity, and looks. Anybody surprised?
