Great point from the Tea Party Patriots:
One thing the establishment has long misunderstood about the Tea Party is we don’t want show votes that may or may not matter in a year, two years, or the next election. That Beltway strategy was supposed to win Republicans the Presidency and the Senate in 2012; it is now on the ash heap of history. The American people want strong, decisive action that will actually make a difference. Show votes are great for politicians; actual defunding is great for the rest of us. –
Liquor–cheap at that–was involved; it was happy hour dammit!.
Baritone or Bass–sing ‘Oh My Darling, Oh My Darling, Oh My Daaaaaaaaarling Clementine…’
Soprano sing ‘The Yellow Rose Of Texas, Something Something Something!!…’
Funny, it *just worked* on the spur of the moment, but attempts to refine it resulted in the *Soprano* going all out of whack.
Now! the Baritone!…..
Ahem…’Oh My Darling, Oh My Darling, Oh My Daaaaaaaaarling Clementine…’
As Elvis would say, “thank you very much”
You are welcome (;
Why am I not surprised that Ruling Class apparatchiks John Boehner and Eric Cantor are outraged (!) over the disclosure that the NSA is spying on Americans.
Boehner said there were adequate safeguards for the NSA programs and that the civil liberties of Americans were “absolutely” being protected.
Thank you Johnny. You have shown your true colors.
Given enough eyeballs, the NSA is fucked.
You have already lost their consent; you just don’t realize it, yet.
So, when you do, what will you do?
Adm. Painter: What’s his plan?
Jack Ryan: His plan?
Adm. Painter: Russians don’t take a dump, son, without a plan.
So, if the plan is to use a Union President to communicate policy to the IRS, at what other agency is this plan being used?
You can sow doubt; it will no longer take root.
You can argue, but we are done listening.
You are seen for what you are, we no longer doubt that you are the evil.
You presume to govern; we no longer consent to your rule
You are the Ruling Class;we are the Country Class.
You are fucked.
I think the Ruling-Class Republicans will do what they have been doing since 2010–embrace and extend. They will embrace the Tea Party outrage, but then drag it out and extend it enough that Tea Party interests–constitutional interests–are not address. See Fast and Furious, Obamacare, Open Borders, Spending, sound money….
With the evil of tyrannical government now there for everybody to see, and with the malfeasance of the Ruling Class in supporting that government, the rational choice will be a third party. That is the Tea-Party.
The infrastructure to build a true political infrastructure is already in place. Its major voices: Palin, Paul, Cruz are articulate, principled and popular (in contrast to Karl Rove, Boehner, McConnnel and now Rubio)
I hope I am wrong. I hope that the Ruling-Class Republicans wake up and smell the tyranny. I hope that Boehner appoints a special committee and blogs open borders bills coming from the Senate. I hope Rubio smells the evil and filibusters the gang-of-eight bill. I hope Issa has Holder arrested for contempt, I hope the house defunds obamacare. Experience has shown that political hope is misplaced.
Honest Americans–Constitutionalists–will place their political hopes in honest brokers.
