You might like this video. It’s a montage of such slides …
These are great. Right on the money.
Those are good. I love using humor to show others how horrible this socialist Marxist president really is – people respond better
I agree with the Tea party we have to get this under educated Moron out of the WHITEHOUSE NOW!!!!!! The pics are right on!
I love the pics. Funny to me, however, that people are still supporting the Tea Party even after they have been revealed as mega-rich business owners attempting to destroy the poor and middle class even further. The entire party is based on a lie created by stock traders. That is a fact, not an opinion. Our government is in ruins regardless of the party.
Josh. Where are your facts. Don’t write some dribble and cal it facts. Prove it!
Fact: the Koch brothers are super-rich and are majority funders of the Tea Party. Fact: they did not publicize that fact and a surprising number of Tea Partiers either didn’t know that or are ignoring it. Fact: many racists want to get the dark-skinned man out of the white house and are using scare tactics and photos like these to motivate others to join their side.
Clarence: FACT; Obama is a bull***ter, Obama attended a Black liberation theology church ( racist) for 20 years, Obama has outspent Bush 2 to 1, Obama has played 110 round of golf while the rest of us suffer, Obama has finacial awarded his contributers and friends with taxpayer funding, Obama administration is not transparent, Obama has not made us well like in the world, Obama is the most devise president in history, Obama threw Israel under the bus and embraced the muslim brotherhood, Obama shoved the Health care bill down the American peoples throat even though 60% didn’t want it, Obama didn’t have the experience to be president. These are the facts. And one LAST FACT, the only reason you vote for Obama is because he is black.
so putting “Fact” before your opinion makes it true? In that case Fact: Clarence is really barack obama school chum from Kenya. Fact: They actually shared a crib.
Clarence, clarence, clarence… You started out with a good point and then ruined it with an ad hominem attack…..try to aim for logical arguments instead of arguments riddled with logical fallacies, and maybe then people will listen to you.
So what? I’m a Tea Partier and I’m quite happy to have some major funding help to get the message out about individual sovereignty and liberty because far too many don’t have a clue what that means. Tea Party people don’t hate the rich. Why would we? Really, what’s wrong with rich people?
The Koch brothers also fund the Democratic Party
CLARENCE – SINCE YOU LIKE FACTS, HERE’S ONE:
I am a small business owner. I ASPIRE TO BE RICH. I WANT TO BE IN THE 1%. I STRIVE TO BE IN THE 1%. I DRIVE MYSELF TO BE IN THE 1%.
I wouldn’t be working 12 to 16 hours a day to be poor………. got that Moron.
Anyone sitting around whining & bitching about other people being rich is a loser……. so there! Loser!
Hey Josh and Clarence. Throwing the word “fact” around like you have actually done research doesn’t validate the point. Here’s a fact for you: over 90% of people who hide their inadequacies behind calling someone else a racist is in fact themselves a racist. Another fact: The Tea Party is not a political party as the left likes to tout, but, politically conscious Americans who believe in the purpose of the Constitution and the limited size of government.
Fact… We are five more trillion dollars in debt, 8% Unemployment, and more people on food stamps than ever! Fact HE NEEDS TO GO!!
Josh . . . carefully back away from your p.c., take your meds and maybe a short nap. You’re careening out of control . . .
Except that they aren’t mega-rich business owners. I’m a Tea Party member, and a long way from being rich. I’ve met any number of Tea Party members, and none of them are mega-rich business owners either.
The stock trader’s rant to which I presume you refer was merely the catalyst that set the whole thing off. You really need to get out more.
@irish19, I feel sorry for you. Don’t you know you’re the “puppet” for the Koch brothers? Of course the Tea Party members are not rich. They’re just a bunch of good ole people thinking that they are in some kind of a grrassroot organization. Couldn’t be further from the truth. Have they talked to you about getting rid of the EPA? Of course they have! The Koch’s are tired of paying millions of dollars for soil and water contamination. Please do yourself a favor and look up the Koch brothers, they are very evil men.
Thank you Julie Lopez for taking time to research facts before you post your opinion. Too many people use big words to try to confuse dumb people like me into thinking they are supporting what is in the best interest for my family. Too many people re-post other peoples opinions and don’t really sit back and think for themselves. I appreciate your post here.
Anti Tea Party people are obviously part of the 51% that do not pay any taxes. Most of these freeloaders get back ore money than they paid in taxes (EIC). Anyone who thinks it is a good idea for a government to continue to raise taxes to give more money to those that have less, but don’t really need it, is an idiot or a freeloader. Europe and California has embraced this for years and both are going broke. Anyone who is posting to this page obviously is not really poor. Anyone with a car, flat screen TV, cable, Internet, computer, is not really poor. Having les than others does not make you poor. Receiving help from the government just for being a non-achiever does not assist you, it just makes you a DEPENDANT, a “ward of the state.”
Let me get this straight? So if someone YOU don’t like supports an issue, YOU believe YOU can’t support that cause, because it makes you a TOOL for the person you don’t like?
Okay, the Koche brothers breathe air … I suggest you follow your logic!
Did they learn evil from you? You just hate them because they’re rich.
Are these the Koch brothers that employ hundreds of thousands of people and supply many of the product you use in your everyday life, ?
So what’s so wrong with getting rid of the EPA? That would take away about half of the government controls and ressurect the economy overnight.
I’d LOVE to see you post your FACTS on this OPINION of yours – about the TEA PARTY !!!
BY ALL MEANS, ENLIGHTEN ALL OF US, UNENLIGHTENED PEOPLES……..
I’m not rich, my husband makes a modest living and we have 4 children and 5 grandchildren. We have been with the Tea Party since the beginning and I have never talked to any mega rich Tea Party people at any events.
This is an article from US News and that is where I get my information. This is my evidence. Other than that, I am no lawyer to show proof to a jury, I just like to see facts before I commit. I am not a member of any political party, I vote for who I believe in…which honestly hasn’t happened in quite some time. The sad part in all of this to me is that so many people took up arms to support this cause for the Tea Party because they thought, “finally someone who has sense, someone who will help cut all of this stupid spending” but no, they also want to cut veteran benefits and that is an automatic middle finger for me.
Josh, The web address gives it away: Read closely and you will see that it is an OPINION page article.
wow mainstream media, and you know what I am glad the conservative right finally got someone with deep pockets interested. We all know the moneys been flowing from Soros for the Democratic/liberal agenda. Oh and by the way Obama is no poor black guy from the ghetto either, he made his fortune and is now making it along with his family mega-vacations on our tax dollars.
Josh – it is a Blog
And of course you noticed on the right hand side where it gave his credentials, didn’t you?
“Peter Fenn is a Democratic political strategist and head of Fenn Communications, one of the nation’s leading political and public affairs media firms.”
That and the fact that it came from U.S. News is more than enough information for me.
obama and the democratic senate is cutting our veteran’s benefits
read the Army Times. The Tea Party are the ones trying to cut the VA funding by…I think….$3 Billion.
Josh, If you believe every thing U S News claims to be fact. You need to read other newspapers, ie: Human Events, or do your own checking thru Fast check.org, which by the way is not conservative, but will be honest with their answers. In school, you used to be taught that
reporting news was based on fact, not opion.
Well i’m in the service as well and have been for nine years and if they have to take every benefit away from me as a veteran than i’m fine with that as long as they get there act together and get our country back on track, and back to the way it was and the values and morals it was founded on.
Also, Obama is a moron. I do not disagree with that statement to any variation.
Josh I’m an apprentice Meat cutter at a grocery store, I get minimum wage, and barley get by week to week. I’v been with the Tea Party since the beginning. So don’t tell me your lies are fact not opinion JACKA**!
I just posted the facts lol
You didn’t post the facts. You just posted an article. Big difference.
Josh, You posted opinion, not facts esp. if it came from USA Today. In the money game, George Soros has outspent the Koch Bros. by BILLIONS. Koch 196 million, Soros BILLIONS, so save the smarmy elitist crap for the one who is really rolling in it. Koch builds things, employs people and I do not believe they are out to destroy the environment, unlike Soros who destroys people and learned at a very young age how profitable it is to even turn in your own who were then sent to death camps.
The Tea Party is NOT A PARTY!!! It is clear-thinking, hard-working, fed-up Americans who are going to the polls in November in record numbers. We didn’t need a fundamental transformation of our country. We need bold conservatives who stand up to establishment Republicans as well as to liberals who don’t understand our foundations.
You may want to take the time to learn who, when, and where your “party” is all about. Learn to stop being sheep and think for yourselves. You people crack me up blindly following people that are worse than what we have in office now. LOL
Josh your a TROLL move on..
There we go with the ad hominem attacks again… argue with facts and research… not attacks against people you don’t (and apparently don’t want to) understand.
Josh, Josh, Josh, I hope OFA pays you even when you fail, because I have been to our Tea Party meetings for 3.5 years, and we have never received a dime. Unless you count Helen, who brought homemade benet’s one night.
Oh, by the way, while you were obsessing about where our money came from, we took over 646 seats in state legislatures. As beloved James Taranto would say:
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Who better than the members would know what it’s all about? Are you a member? Have you been to a Tea Party meeting? Do you talk to Tea Party members? Your fact checking is from US News???? *SNORT!*
Josh, are the black members also racist? With your logic and facts are they against blacks or whites? Curious about your learned opinion
Josh ,you have a very liberal mindset,stuck on stupid it seems.Take plank out of your eyes before you tell others they are blind!
WOW! Ruth, you said it best! Now let’s all go to the polls in November & vote out as many self-serving incumbants as possible, especially the Liberal Democrats! And don’t forget to vote Obammy out! I can’t wait to say, “Good riddance!” to that cancer on America.
If the U.S. citizens really love this country they will vote every blood-sucking Dem out of office. Look what those evil, despicable, low-lifes have already done to our country and are attempting to do to our Constitution!
VOTE ALL DEMS OUT 2012
I’m in the tea party and I’m a middle class disabled vet. My mother is in the tea party and she is a middle class retired secretary. We both live pay check to pay check. All my tea party friends are middle class (all of us probably lower middle class) and none of them or any other tea party members I meet with or have met are mega-rich business owners. And stock traders have nothing to do with the tea party movement. So maybe you should check your so-called “facts” before you spout such crap and embarrass yourself with your ignorance of the issues.
Fact – Koch brothers fund the Tea Party. Period.
Where in the Constitution does it place a salary cap on Americans pooling their resources to speak out against government actions they find offensive?
Josh: Fact – George Soros pays BILLIONS to indoctrinate people like you. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/special-report-george-soros-godfather-of-the-left/
fact – Sotros fund liberal agendas and tried to break the Bank of England for his own profit. The trouble with communists is they want to be rich and rule all the poor people, I find it interesting that Soros is so infatuated with obama.
So do many others give,doesn’t mean they are evil,just a different mindset from yours Josh.Consevatives think on the right side of their brain, liberals think on the wrong side of the brain,just a FACT
JOSH:Giving to an organization who’s ideas you support Josh, is not that same as starting an organization.I support the Republican party,that doesn’t mean I was a founder of if.Koch brothers are conservatives,so they are more likely to give to conservative movements.Doesn’t make them evil.Obama tries hard to get his flocks on the reservation to think of rich as evil.How many poor employers do you know? How many poor employers will it take to make you see Obama is wrong?
I agree with you completely. The left tends to think of people by what’s in their wallet whereas the right tend to think of people by what’s in their heart. It is better to judge one’s heart than it is to covert their property in my opinion.
Josh, so do a lot of other people of all races, creeds and class standing donate to the Tea Party, and if The brothers donate the most, so what? Stick to the issues and quit the character assasination innuendoes which is the typical modus operandi of the Democratic Party when they can’t discuss the issues logically.
Where you got your mis-information about the tea party must have come from a liberal media source. Why not go to a rally and see for yourself. Over 75% of the members are retired and living on their social security, or young families with young children barely making ends meet. They come in all races, with a good percent being Latino or Afro-American. Even young High School students usually with the biggest banners and the loudest cheering come in droves.
My husband and I are both Tea Party supporters and we are retired and living on Social Security. This is a grass roots organization that wants to limit government, cut government spending and give the USA back to the citizens.
Sooo, Josh, what planet are you from, and how much Kool-Aid did you drink before you landed here?
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt! Anon.
I’m a Tea Party member from Cincinnati and I’m a stay at home mom. My brother is a Tea Party member and he built his own business (without Obama) and employees over 75 people in 3 countries. My father is a Tea Party member and he is a retired FBI agent. My friend is a Tea Party member and she works at a Day Care Center. No, we are not out to destroy the middle class, we stand for limited government and free markets. We work tirelessly to ensure liberty and freedom for ALL. Go to a local Tea Party meeting and OPEN your eyes.
Josh you have been drinking to much cool aid, back away from the picture dude!
Ah crap, did he poorly word two sentences. What a Moron. I always thought he had Bain Damage. Or was that someone else?
BTW, did you have a specific reason for capitalizing the word Moron? Was there some secret message that you were trying to sneak past us? What a Smartie you are !!!
Wow I guess Obama voters will NEVER change by the way HOW’S THAT HOPE & CHANGE working out for you? Please do everyone in the country & the world a BIG FAVOR. STAY HOME ON ELECTION DAY PLEASE!
I love these. Today in Raleigh, NC I rode by Snoopy’s Hotdog stand on Wake Forest Road whose sign read, “Mr. Obama, I built this business.” I LOVE IT!
Love it too Paula! We need more of those.
These are right on the $$ and we should FLOOD the net with them to drive home the point- obama is killing small business as well as everything else that has made America what she is!
There is only one thing that would make me denounce my citizenship as an American. Put Obama in for another turn and I would rather live in another country than admit I have such a stupid president.
I hate to say this, BUT I AGREE WITH YOU, 100% !!!
I’m just going to call myself one of the “old Americans” Meaning from the former, better, “old” America. Not the new socialist one.
So Obama is dumber than Bush? ROFL!!!
Waaaaaaay dumber than Bush!!!!!!
Obviously you are in the wrong place josh and you can say whatever you want but your liberal democrat “id” is showing. lol
The dems use that line against almost every republican president. Just going back to my day, Gerald Ford was dumb from playing too much football without a helmet. Reagan was an idiot. George Bush 2 was an idiot. How all of these morons beat their genius dems opponets I don’t guess we’ll ever know. They must have cheated.
OMG Les,that is too funny!!!
See Josh,there is proof of your brain washing,they have pounded in your head that Bush is dumb and you believe it.
Bush is actually a very intelligent man. I believe he had no reason to apologize about the war in Iraq, because the WMD were convoyed out before we went in. They were moved to Syria. That is why Syria has claimed they have WMD.
Amen Gail,I believe the same thing,they at the time had satelight images of stuff being moved and headed to the boarder before we went into Iraq.
Here we go again! But yeah, he his a lot dummer than Bush!
The one with him bug-eyed staring at the little girl with her building blocks is by far the BEST
I truly LOVE the fact that this ” MORONIC AMATEUR, ILLEGAL ALIEN, FAKE POTUS ” made this statement….. It just goes to show you that a ZEBRA can’t hide it’s stripes…
What about that statement he made – about the fact that he has personally been to 57 of the STATES but couldn’t get to Alaska or Hawaii…… So, I suppose ” WE, THE PEOPLE, HAD NO IDEA THAT WE HAVE 59 STATES & ONLY OBAMA KNEW THAT FACT ” !!!!
I NOW wonder if he plans to FORCEFULLY incorporate MEXICO INTO THE UNION ??? THAT WOULD MAKE US A TOTAL OF 60 STATES BY HIS COUNT…… BUT, WHERE ARE THOSE OTHER 9 STATES AT ?? CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHERE THEY ARE AT, I’D LIKE TO EDUCATE MYSELF WITH THIS NEW ” OBAMA FACT ” THAT I NEVER KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT !!!! :>}}
This IDIOT has MADE so many derogatory & outright FALSE statements about this Wonderful Country & it’s peoples that it proves just how LITTLE he thinks of the REAL, ” LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS ” & HOW LITTLE HE KNOWS ABOUT A COUNTRY THAT HE ISN’T EVEN A LEGAL CITIZEN OF, YET HE IS IN THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND & HIS WIFE HATES LIVING IN THE ” HELL ” OF THE WHITE HOUSE & ISN’T PROUD OF AMERICA, BUT SHE SURE LIKES TO BRAG ABOUT HOW MANY SERVANTS SHE HAS IN THE WHITE HOUSE & GOES WHEREVER SHE PLEASES INSIDE & OUTSIDE OF IT @ ” WE THE PEOPLE’S ” EXPENSE !!!
James Ely, he is not only under-educated…. he is also legally ” UNQUALIFIED ” to even be a Presidential Candidate, let alone an Illegal POTUS !!!!!
I pray that he is Prosecuted & Deported for his lies, falsified documentation & crimes against the American People by using ” Executive Privilege ” to get whatever he wants to be instituted as policy or law……….
Folks, IF he somehow, ( it would have to be illegally ) gets re-elected, we may as well Kiss the America WE ALL KNOW & LOVE, GOODBYE, BECAUSE HE WILL MOST CERTAINLY FIND A WAY TO ” SOCIALIZE ” AMERICA & INSTITUTE MARTIAL LAW TO KEEP US EITHER QUIET, OR KILL US OFF BY THE MILLIONS….. JUST LIKE HITLER DID TO GERMANY & THE KILLING OFF OF OVER 6 MILLION JEWS……… OBAMA IS , IMHO – HITLER, REINCARNATE………. PERIOD !!! BF II
They’re really creeping out of their dark corners, now that they understand just how poor Romney’s chances of winning are.
BTW – Did you know that most economists believe that one of the very few things that the U.S. can do to improve its global competitiveness would be to more fully implement National Healthcare? You’d eliminate billions in wasted dollars and at the same time annoy the hell out of some bigots. How could you pass up that opportunity?
Could you please post a link to your facts because all the ones I find on the subject say the complete opposite. Quite a contradiction.
Obama, the son of Belial currently occupying our White House has again let his true colors show more clearly. His arrogance (hopefully) will lead to his downfall. I am still fear full that there is a greater than even chance he will have a 2nd term, no matter what the vote count turns out to be. His mission is not yet complete and he does need the freedom of a 2nd term, as he stated to the Russian President, to better complete his assigned tasks. (What assigned task, by whom?). He took a gamble by coming out and more clearly stating what he feels and wants, but when he gets his 2nd term it will pay off. I believe his actions are deliberate. Obama and his handlers are purposeful taking action to make us all equal. The purpose of all this is to prepare the citizens of the USA for the really bad stuff he is going to perform after his re-election starting 21 Jan 2013. The intentional collapse of the US economy will have a much deeper and profound impact on the world than the fall of the Roman Empire, and we know that collapse brought in the Dark Ages. His actions will cause a general collapse of the US, an added bonus for them, but the economic collapse may be enough for “them” to accomplish their end state, which is to usher in the New World Order. We all know who we get when this New World Order comes into being.
Please please please take Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin, Allen West, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and Grover Norquist with you when you leave this great country after We The People re-elect President Barack Hussein Obama and put him back in the White House for a second term. Oh, and Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Lary Elder, Mark Levin, Hugh Hewitt and George Zimmerman can go too. Yo might need to charter a bus or plane. Hey, you can ask Mittens or the Koch brothers to borrow a plane for this journey.
You’d be doing a patriotic service for your ex country when you do decide to leave. This Democratic Republic needs patriots who understand we are ALL IN THIS TOGETHER and act accordingly by putting country above politics and absolutely above party lines.
I forgot to mention, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, John Sununu, Tim Pawlenty, Ted Nugent and all the cast members of The Five on Fox, in fact, take all of the so called “reporters” on Fox. They can ALL go!
The rest of us will work hard to move this country forward in the direction of equality, accountability, responsibility and investing in the future today.
When weobey our country there you are welcome to come back as long as you understand the new rules of the game. These rules mean We ALL PLAY BY THE SAME SET OF RULES. That you don’t get special privileges because you are wealthy. You don’t get special treatment because you are Anglo, White, Caucasian, or simply devoid of color.
Sne dus a postcard.
You may want to rethink what your asking. You see if all the conservative people leave this country that will only leave liberals. Without conservatives to do all the work so the liberals won’t have to where will you get your money. No taxpayers means no welfare checks. If you think Marxism works you may want to take a lesson from Russia.
Meno – I’d like to congratulate you on a fine idea, but I’d like to confirm one thing before I do that. The country that you’d ideally send these guys to, it isn’t Northward by any chance, is it ???
Then who would pay the taxes to support your great society?
They have already created the country she desires. Its called California. It seems to be working great for them.
I don’t know what you are smoking, but Republicans and Tea Party members alike believe in EQUALITY and opportunity. They are working hard to move this country forward in the ways that the founding fathers set forth. They ARE “investing in the future” by trying to conserve government spending so that our children might not face an overwhelming deficit, a deficit ten times greater than that with which we are faced today. “Accountability” and “responsibility” are good things when enforced in moderation, but when they are forced upon the American public in the form of Obamacare and other poorly managed and expensive entitlement programs, they encroach upon our FREEDOM… The freedom for which the African Americans fought, the freedom for which the founding fathers fought, and the freedom that millions of immigrants wait for and pray for every year. Freedom is the most important value in America, and Obama’s liberal policies are threatening the freedom of Americans. If you can’t see that already, then perhaps we should move to another country and let you run this one into the ground. Maybe then you will listen.
And people like you are the reason I will be voting and will encourage everyone I know to vote against obama
Meno you are on welfare right? Not a business owner??? What has Obama done for you lately?? He hasn’t done shit for me!!! And as the sign says”You(Obama) didn’t kill Osama” so don’t bring that up
If it wasn’t for the shipbuilders who built ships sold to the slave traders who brought slaves across a vast ocean and sold them to plantation owners who feed the slaves obama could not have gone to Harvard and become the worst US president and ruined this countr
The problem with Obama isn’t his color. The problem is his Socialistic views and ability to be paid off by liberal agenda groups. He has no honor, no ability to tell the truth and mean it. Unfortunately Romney is the same way.
Josh: I’m loath to even dignify your comments with a response, but I feel obligated to note that Dustin Stockton is in no way connected to the Koch-funded groups referenced in the piece you link to. The Tea Party is a big, diverse movement… the Kochs are allowed to participate in politics just like anyone else, they just don’t have anything to do with this site. You might consider singing your boring little song somewhere where, I don’t know, the Kochs are actually involved.
You may want to read up on that just to prove me I’m wrong. If you can persuade me (with FACTS not opinions) I’ll retract everything I’ve said. I do not pretend to know everything, but I do not like to be lied to into thinking I’m doing the right thing when I’m supporting the people that are trying to screw me and mine.
Pretty funny that you mention your “facts” which are taken from an opinion page.
Facts are obama has failed, that’s enough for me.
Well then how about this tidbit. Its a fact that Obamas healthcare agenda was the largest Tax ever imposed on the American people. Its also a fact that a lot of Obamas appointees, czars, staff, chief policy advisors are proven Tax cheats. And there are pages of the bill that specifically exclude anyone in Obamas immediate family/Congress and senate from participating in it. Hmmm, if its so good for all Americans then why don’t they want to be a part of it?
There you go again , Josh. Presently the misguided opinion that we tea party members have been lured in, after being lied too. By some slick talking con artist paid for by some ultra rich slime bucket to boot seems to be the fact supporting your delusion. I AM the tea party.
I happened to be watching the morning Rick Santelli made his rant. My response was not…. “Oh that makes sense, I’ll believe that.” Nope. My thoughts were , like most other tea party member I have ever met, FINALLY someone had the brass to state the TRUTH. (Mr. Santelli is your unnamed evil stock trader. Options actually, but I won’t bore you with any true facts.)
The only people I know who seem to be brainwashed tend to be flaming progressives. Mindlessly spouting the same talking points the propaganda machine bombards us all with. A goodly portion of the funding supporting that machine, originates from george soros. Now there IS an evil slime bucket. Check the facts on how be acquired his billions. Hint: Through the destruction of whole economies, to the detriment of all. Especially the poorest.
soros is not stupid. He has a massive play set to profit from the collapse of america. Makes you wonder exactly what are his true motivations supporting so many progressive opinion molders, doesn’t it.
Check the true facts.
Thank you GameGenie.
You answered him logically and with good thoughts.
As for his response… All I can do is laugh, because he obviously still doesn’t understand your point.
I was a member of a tea party group that formed in early 2010 just north of Philadelphia. the group had no money, had collection jars at meetings to help reimburse the leaders for the expenses they fronted. Then an organization called Americans for Prosperity (funded partially by Koch money) rented an empty store front and got a computerized phone system for our group. Fact: our tea party group was NOT created by Koch, we were a grassroots penniless group before AFP gave us a place to meet. We have a hard time understanding how liberals work against your own long term interests by being willing to live on the “government plantation.” The Obama rhetoric of “redistributing the wealth” is only possible when the wealth first exists in a somewhat free capitalist economy. As PM Thatcher so elegantly said, the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. At that time the level playing field will get lower and lower, and government control will get bigger and bigger. The tea party does not want to see us heading in the same direction as France, Greece, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea. All of these countries have universal health care, or what in many cases should be called a universal lack of health care (by US standards) as the country’s wealth diminishes.
Amen ! Bob, but logic and truth doesn’t count in their minds? How many votes can they buy is what counts.
Alright people, time to lighten up a bit.
Seriously. Just because you’re *part* of a movement doesn’t mean you represent your movement. Yes, the people who got the tea party elected are just your average American. They are not millionaires, they are not funded by some multibillion dollar corporation or any of that jazz.
The people *running* for office, the people you *put* into office are. The Koch brothers personally financed several different Tea Party candidates and got them into office. The *majority* of Tea Party candidates had/have no clue on what it takes to run a public office. They are just as ignorant as Obama is.
Regardless of how the vote comes out in November, we’re screwed. I just hope to hell Obama doesn’t get elected again. I don’t want Romney in power, but I don’t want Obama in power again more so.
Seriously though, stop thinking you *are* the Tea Party. You’re not. You’re just the good little soldiers. The Tea Party has you, Obama has the Blacks and Latinos.
Yes we are the tea party, you are wrong about that. How would you even begin to know what the tea party is about if you aren’t out there and involved with it. Because the Koch brothers are involved doesn’t mean they own it. All of us who go out and get together, who vote, who carry signs and engage knowledgeable speakers, we are the tea party.
Well, if you don’t think I built my business, then you certainly won’t be sending _me_ any tax bill for it, right?
FACT: President Obama has George Soros…for those who are always throwing the Koch bros. in the mix. Look him up yourselves, and you’ll see what kind of people our leader is snuggling up with.
Well, well, I didn’t read all these so-called facts, fictions, ideas, and opinions, someone else did…
Dear Patriots, Sadly, you’re wasting your time trying to reason with these radical left Obama drones. They only want a government that supports their financial needs from the cradle to the grave. They turn a blind eye to what’s happening in Greece and most of Europe. They represent the 51% that pay no taxes, just bleed the system for all they can get. I call them freeloaders and deadwood. They are the problem, not the people who manage to support themselves and God forbid, maybe become successful.
“They represent the 51% that pay no taxes, just bleed the system for all they can get. ”
I work for a living. Sorry you make more money. Probably on the backs of those 51%. I don’t consider ANYONE that works a 40-hour week a “freeloader”.
But damn straight I’ll bleed it for whatever I can get and give as little as possible in return. Kinda hard to inflict mass tyranny on an armed populace without the funds.
This may be the only truthful statement the muslim clown has ever made? Yes, I had help building a business, it was from nine of my children and a working wife, but never, not even once, from any government flunky or agency! Thanks for reminding us all, yet again, how ignorant you truly are.
DID ANYONE MENTION UNION MONEY.
“”"FACT”"” you uneducated people ..Quit calling Obama a black man its a disgrace to the real black people Obama is not black he is Arabic American sort of speak his mother is a white women his father is Arabic Kenyon NOT black Kenyon Arabic and Kenyon are not races so again I REPEAT OBAMA IS NOT BLACK MAN NOR WILL HE EVER BE A BLACK MAN….so gets your facts straight…. Morgan Freeman said it himself on national TV Obama is not a black man, he is a man with a dark skin….
If somebody else made that happen for us, then they should pay the taxes too. If you didn’t build it, then you shouldn’t have to pay the taxes.
“You didn’t build that. If you have a business some one else made that happen”. I guess this MIGHT BE true if you are a minority (yes I said it) and you took government assistance to start your company. I can see where HE is coming from HE simply does not know the struggle of the “unprotected group”. The group that by law CAN be discriminated against and IS discriminated against by the very laws of this country. HE simply only knows how HE has lived with all those entitlements. I guess HE thinks every one gets some type of entitlement.
I am in that “unprotected group”. I was brought up in middle class America. I only have a high school education and am dyslexic. However, I am a business owner and have been in busyness since 1999. All of this I built. No one made it happen! As a matter of fact, the government stood in my way. You see, when it was time for me a 31 year old white male to ask the bank and the government for a loan (not a grant or hand out) they said NO! One honest banker closed his office door and asked me “is there any way you can put it (the business) in your wife’s name? I told him no, I was not going to do that. He then told me “if you put it in her name I could approve your loan”. He further stated “if only you were black I could approve this as a government backed loan”.
I built it any way! I sold every thing I had including my small retirement from a previous job. The Government of course penalized me for early with drawl of my retirement. So they sure as hell did not help. I risked my hose and every thing I had. I BUILT IT!!! I am very proud I have built it and I have made it despite the cards of reverse discrimination being stacked against me! I have made it to the 1%! So you see little Timmy if you work very very hard you can do any thing no matter what. Just do it!
Wow that is an inspiring story! Good job!
I have been reading the post and was hoping someone would convey how it felt to be the average American who doesn’t get the help because we are not considered the minority. My husband started his business while we had 3 babies at home…no one would loan us start up for our business! We went through every penny in our savings, ate rice & beans, did without vacations & did not shop for fun! After 26 years of business ownership & still going…I can honestly say that the only ones we should thank are our God & family for instilling in us the fortitude to weather the ups & downs of owning a business in spite of our government!
Timothy,I love your story.Good for you. We need more with your spirit!!!
