What happens when you express concern about massive government transfers of wealth, power grabs and unconstitutional mandates?

NPR uses your own tax money to mock you, that’s what: “Learn to speak tea bag.”

In a way, this kind of proves the point.

    Doug,
    Thanks for the heads up. I went to the NPR link, was disgusted, and started to post a comment. However, so many other individuals had already skewered the NPR Obamabots that there was really no need.

    Keep up the good work.

    Tea Baggers are idiots. The notion that they are suddently concious of big gov't spending is absurd. We heard not a tea bag peep while Bush and his pals spent us into oblivion.

    They are just simpletons fed a pack of propoganda by Limbaugh, Beck, etc. They eat up the non factual nonsense with such glee it is disturbing.

    Get real. Tea Baggers are frauds and idiots.

    Way to go Nick – Boooooosh's fault! You are so smart! I have never heard you say that before!

    Way to go Nanny, make up shit that I didnt say to beg out of any intellectual debate.

    While plenty is Bush's fault (he was a disaster by any reckoning) I didn't blame anything on Bush in my above post, just pointed out the empty hypocrisy of the tea baggers – no protest when Bush spent, suddenly "patriotic" when Obama spends.

    You areally aren't very astute.

    True… Libertarians and Conservatives dropped the ball when Bush was spending us into oblivion… BUT- does that really make people's opinions less valuable when they are upset that the current government has ramped up spending to Bush levels times 3.

    More people should have spoken up when Bush was spending like Paris Hilton on crack, but I think 'the left' had taken up all the streets in the US as they were protesting every time Bush took a breathe. Perhaps people had gotten defensive about GWBush because of all the unfair and unfounded attacks on him…

    On that subject, though. Where is all the outrageous outrage about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan now? As I remember, the anti-war movement was protesting in the streets on a daily basis, but I don't hear a peep out of them now… What about Bagrham Air Force Base in Afghanistan… What about the non-closing of Gitmo… What about getting us out of Iraq immediately… Where is the outrage?

    My guess: people like to cheer for the home team. Maybe people should focus more on policy and less on the 'D' or 'R' after the name… JMO~~

    It's hard to believe the clown who made up the animation is from San Francisco and he has the nerve to call the Tea Partiers Tea Baggers. There is a big difference between someone who is fed up with unfettered government spending and some poo pusher like Keith Olbernann who partakes in that sick crap.

    Nick, Nick, Nick – go back and look at all of your posts on this site! You can't help yourself – almost every one of them mentions Bush and the last 8 years, blah, blah, blah. I don't have to make up anything – your blame Bush rants are in print on this site. And by the way where were your blame Bush rants concerning the Christmas Day Crotch Bomber? You sound like Two Penny Jenny Granholm, who after 7 years, is still blaming Engler for our woes in Michigan. Just doesn't wash.

    Speaking of protestors where is your anti war crowd – last time I looked Zero just sent 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. They don't seem to mind war when their "Messiah" is in charge. Hmmmmmm…….

  8. Nanny on January 5th, 2010 12:13 am

    Dale – nothing surprises me about NPR and their liberal rants. Just pay attention to our resident poo pusher Nick – like Olberbite – he can't help himself either! It can be entertaining at times. Watch MSNBC then come back here and read Nick's comments – almost word for word what Chrissy Tingles repeats!

    Fine, I'll take the 'teabagger' title, but I want to take back with it:
    Rainbows
    purple, lavender, all shades in between
    The Flintstones and their 'gay old time'.
    Quiche.

    Homo's; you can keep 'homo' akay?

    Nick, you homo, you need not reply-

  10. Doug on January 5th, 2010 2:46 am

    You know, that's a good point JJ. Republicans/conservatives are the ones the left paints as homophobic, but they're out there daily now throwing that "teabagger" label around as an insult.

    There are some of us right-wingers who proudly wear as a label a title that represents a gnarly sexual practice of one of the left's core constituencies — if that doesn't make us bipartisan, I don't know what does.

  11. AngelaTC on January 5th, 2010 3:26 am

    eeww – Doug just made bipartisan a dirty word.

    Nick, 2 years ago you and yours were frothing about debt and war. I know you didn't notice it, but so were we, Those are the issues that cost the GOP their majorities.

    We haven't changed our minds about that. You, on the other hand….

    I'm offended that NPR is using my money to make such a bad public announcement, or whatever it is. I'm also convinced some really clever person or people will make a much more clever parody of it on YouTube just like they did with the "insurance companies are bad" stuff the liberals put out a month or so ago. YouTube video makers are remarkably smart and clever at times, and I don't have to give them any money or worry that the government is giving my money to them. Free market and individual creativity trump propaganda.
