Ran across this as I was rehabing from surgery. The first step is to shine a light on the issues but the question now is “What are you going to do about it?”
“Its this time of the year I choose to celebrate us as a people. The thieves, the drug addict moms leaving their children in abandon houses to go get high, the drunks beating their wives and children, the pedophiles who just cant help sharing their special kind of love with children, the parents who kill their kids, the people who murder and maim total strangers, the home invaders who kill everyone and set the house on fire to cover a two hundred dollar score, the rapists who prey on women while they are out shopping for their loved ones, all the soon to pass teens who felt life was too hard, the greedy who just want a little more at someone elses expense, the lying politicians who screw over the ones their supposed to be helping, the liars who take up others lives to further their own selfish delusions, the hiv+ hookers who dont care who they give what to, the puppet dictators, the war criminals, the racists, the homophobes, the pretend christians, the muslim extremests, the westbourough babtists,the terroists, the hate mongers, the fear mongers,the corrupt cops, the people who pass by the homeless with disdain in their eyes, the ones who walk through life with blinders on…and the list could keep going forever and ever. HAPPY HOLIDAYS. And to all a goodnight.” – Indy craigslist rant and raves Dec 12
Soon I will post some stories of what I have done about things?
Before I get too deep into this post I think some background info on me is warranted. I have always thought of myself as a republican. Many of my opinions formed during the Reagan years while in high school.
The Tea Party Movement TPM is an easy way to show my indignation. The TPM is against illegal aliens but are too lazy to do the hard back-breaking labor that most illegal aliens tend to do. Hell, the TPM list illegal aliens as the number 1 core belief. Last time I check we are all pretty much aliens unless your name is Running Bear Bottom. Many have been working and paying taxes (but too afraid to claim refund) for a long time so the whole argument about illegals being a burden on our government is crap.
The second point that the TPM makes that really shows how hypocritical they are is points 6 and 7. That the Government must be downsized and the national budget must be balanced. I agree in total with these two point but being that the Teap Party is made up of a lot of older angry white people they have a differennt view on what is to be downsized to balance the budget. I can hear their thought process now ” Cut the government we need to balance the budget but dont take anything from me….I earned it…….take it from the poor widows and orphans…. them damn mexicans are using all my benefits ……. ”
Poll: Tea Party Voters Oppose Cuts To Medicare, Social Security | A new McClatchy-Marist Institute for Public Opinion poll shows 81 percent of voters oppose major cuts to Social Security and Medicare. The poll, which tests voters’ opinions of deficit cutting policies being considered by the super committee, found overwhelming opposition to such cuts within each demographic. Even supposedly anti-government Tea Party supporters opposed the cuts by a 76-22 margin. The poll also found consensus behind increasing taxes on higher-earning Americans: 67 percent of respondents agreed with that suggestion, including 53 percent of Republicans.
Hell, I thought I woke up in some weird alternate universe last week. I turn on the TV and a Democratic President is wanting tax cuts and a Republican congressman is against it.
