You know you have Congress on the run when articles like the one that follows are printed, and Nancy Pelosi calls the tea parties “astroturfing”. The dingdongs in Washington, D.C. have realized that even with the smear job that the MSM has been doing lately after completely ignoring the protests, this MOVEMENT IS REAL and GROWING! You know that Axelrod was glued to FOX yesterday and has a game plan this morning using ACORN and the Obama Army to combat a real grassroots push to rein in this unconstitutional government.
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted “tea party” protests yesterday, labeling the activities “despicable” and shameful.”
“The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs,” Schakowsky said in a statement.
“It’s despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful political stunt,” she added. “Not a single American household or business will be taxed at a higher rate this year. Made to look like a grassroots uprising, this is an Obama bashing party promoted by corporate interests, as well as Republican lobbyists and politicians.”
I want to thank Jan for letting us know that we are despicable and shameful people. Everybody add Jan’s name to the list of traitors who are name-calling average everyday hard-working Americans that are so incredibly self reliant that we just kept rolling with the punches and not saying anything until DC tried to take everything from us, our children, and our grandchildren in the last 2 months, i.e. money, homes, land. What’s next; food (HR875), guns (HR45), the internet (S773), and installing your messiah as dictator (HJ Res 5)?
We have a message for you Jan, and the rest of your buddies in Washington…we ARE NOT right-wing activists; WE ARE AMERICANS, we are democrats, republicans, independents, and non-affiliated voters who are actually in the top half of the class and have enough common sense to see where all this spending and government control is going, AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO ABUSE THE POWER THAT WAS GIVEN TO YOU ANYMORE!
Get ready for more tea parties ladies and gentlemen; saddle up!
CONGRESS; GET READY TO BE FIRED!
And now, your favorite dipstick in Congress:
Nazi Nancy Pelosi trying to “encourage” the bots to fall back in line:
I want you all to know that $400 or $800 (depending) that you are getting back spread out over your weekly or bi-weekly checks is coming out of my boss’ pocket, my pocket, the pockets of every small business owner, your children and your children’s children. This Congress, the last Congress, Bambi, W, the Treasury and THE FED are bankrupting this country.
….for unabashed media bias. Bambibot reporter, Susan Roesgen, acting like the standard, irresponsible reporter for Communist News Network…and CNN wonders why they are getting their behind kicked by FOX News.
Next time Susan, leave YOUR AGENDA at home, let the people speak, and report the news!
UPDATE: 4/16/09 Hat Tip to Patman for dropping this video link on this site.
As many of you know and can imagine, Hawaii is a really laid back community, so I am truly surprised that Hawaii is waking up to the corruption in our government, putting down their surf boards and fishing poles AND protesting.
I attended the Kona Tea Party and was amazed at the number of people that attended. I know it isn’t the Alamo or Atlanta, but 200 people attending is the most I have ever seen endorsing anything! We all got a great laugh about the anonymous phone call that was made to the police about a disturbance on the side of the road requiring a police officer to come down and find out what was going on.
State House and Senate members tentatively passed a $4 billion tax increase on the people of Hawaii today on the eve of the largest anti-tax protest in the nation’s history.
The legislature wants every resident in the state of Hawaii to pay more for gas, and more in vehicle registration fees and vehicle weight fees (Senate Bill 1611).
The legislature also passed tax increases which could put hotel employees out of work by increasing the Transient Accommodations Tax. Leaders in the hotel industry say that this new tax would hurt the hotel business and their ability to compete with other tourist destinations, especially during a bad economy. (Senate Bill 1111).
“This is just wrong,” said Joe Pandolfe, organizer of the Honolulu Tax Day Tea Party tomorrow, from 4-7 p.m. at the State Capitol. “Legislators are clearly not living in the world that we are and do not understand how much the people of Hawaii are suffering. We must put a stop to this.”
