Tea Party History Lesson





Deficits, Taxes, and Republican Hypocrisy

5 12 2010

Watch Al pick the Republican position apart like so much left over turkey.

Fiscal responsibility my ass.





Bullies And Bigots

12 11 2010

I’m looking at you Republicans.

And yes John McCain, that was your rich wife calling your hypocritical punk ass out.  You better get your shit in order or Mommy might just take away your allowance.





Post 2010 Election Perspective

4 11 2010

After such a disappointing election where the forces of fear, bigotry, superstition, and misinformation triumphed over the proponents of hope, compassion, science, and enlightenment I needed a little something to restore my sense of perspective.  If you need a little of the same I strongly recommend you watch this.  It’s all kinds of awesome.

Religions tell children they might go to hell and they must believe…while science tells children they came from the stars and presents reasoning they can believe.

I'm shocked I tell you. Shocked!





Boehener Ad Lays It Out

25 08 2010

Boehener isn’t in my congressional district but I can’t help feel embarrassed every time I’m reminded he’s from Ohio. Here’s a little something for you oh orange/tan douchey one.





Democratic Vs. Republican Tax Plans

17 08 2010

What is the difference between the tax plans being proposed by the Democrats and the Republicans? If you make as much money as 98% of Americans the answer is “not much difference”. If, however, you make over $1 million dollars a year you will have a decidedly different answer.

Of course we all know that the Republican tax cuts to the super wealthy will pay for themselves (just like they have for the past ten years) with all that massive increase in trickle down voodoo economics. [/snark]





I’m Not Gay…

…but I do love me some Weiner.

Anthony Weiner unloaded on cowardly Republicans after they heartlessly killed a bill that would provide $7.4 billion in health care aid to rescue and recovery workers who have faced health problems since their work in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

94% of Democrats supported the bill.
93% of Republicans voted against it.

The party of ‘NO’ marches on.





Party Of No Devolves Again

12 04 2010

The former party of Lincoln has moved one tea-bag closer to hunkering down in the far right wing of their survival bunker and armory.  Sara “Partial-Term-Gubernatorial-Abortion” Palin gave a speech where she was bragging that the Republican party has devolved further from the simple five-year-old-tantrum style “Party of  No” to the more intentionally intransigent “Party of Hell No!

It’s not like it was that far of a journey though.  The “Hell No” is frankly far more succinct than the multitude of other labels the Republicans have been dragging around in their carpet bags since the age of Reagan.

They’ve of course always been the party of no unions but Saint Ronnie started them down the now well worn path of the party of no fiscal responsibility, the party of no health care, the party of no effective drug policy and even the party of we have no problem with apartheid.

Other proudly advertised monikers include these greats:

The party of no food regulations

The party of no financial regulations

The party of no science

The party of no military service (except for John “I can’t fly” McCain)

The party of no empathy

The party of no rational thoughts

The party of no sense of hypocrisy

The party of no consistency and no shame

The party of no uppity blacks

The party of no integrity, and of course

The party of no real ideas.

Yeah, the party of “Hell No!” is so much easier to remember.

That and it really contrasts nicely against the party of “Yes we can!”.

PS: I’m sure I missed more than a few so feel free to add to the list in the comments

Before you read the article below, do you consider yourself to be more creative(in which you see the big picture, make broad associations and connect disparate ideas) or analytical (in which your brain zooms in and focuses on details)?

Got an answer? Okay, now go read THIS article from Scientific American.

Now what do you think? Do you think it’s accurate?
