Taxpayer dollars used to fund study tying Tea Party to tobacco lobby. Kinda makes the Tea Party’s point about frivilous, wasteful, stupid government spending, doesn’t it?

Hey, here’s an idea: let’s give taxpayer money to some paranoid delusional drug-using progressive nincompoops in San Francisco and have them produce a “study” indicting the Tea Party!

Doesn’t Michael Moore already have a monopoly on that business plan?

The elitist jerks, that are now in power, will do anything to destroy their worst fear, a responsible government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Shall it not perish from the earth.

Ok, so let’s elect a TEA Party majority to Congress, and see if they eliminate the tobacco subsidy. That should end it.

Until then, if they want to badmouth the TEA Party’s background, we should hammer the racist past of the Democrats.

Have you noticed they are all over the film about Lincoln? They have grasped him to their breasts, as a fellow warrior in the pursuit of “equality” and they insist yes, he WAS absolutely against slavery all along, etc. Too bad they don’t seem to notice he was Republican.

Tipping of the hand, makes it clear who those in power are afraid of.

Whenever I see a study that produces dubious results, I always look to see who funded it. Oh, government funded? It’s most likely bullshit, done for bullshit reasons.

As many of you know, I am a moderate, leaning to the conservative side. I am not a tea partier. I resent every conservative (or Republican voter) being characterized as some drooling, knuckle dragging backwoods inbred moron that doesn’t have any more sense that to be a Tea Partier. Even within the Tea Party itself, there are degrees of how conservative voters are. The lefties get pissy if we group all the Dem(wits) together, but they absolutely don’t seem to have a problem treating us like the borg, all interchangable parts of the whole, with no individual thought or decision makeing! Rant off.

Sounds like you’re talking about she who shall not be mentioned!
