Re: Tea Party again, surprise surprise
Good eye!

Another quote from that article:

quote:
It is even less popular than much maligned groups like atheists and Muslims. Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.

At last, unpopular groups who actually earned their unpopularity!

Re: Tea Party again, surprise surprise
I was very happy to see that they are becoming unpopular. I honestly don't know if I can stand living in this country if those bastards succeed in taking over MY country.

Anyway, the point is I've been saying this since the beginning that the tea party originated from bigotry. The only reason they claim to be about anything else is because bigotry ain't politically correct. Even the KKK these days don't want to admit they are racist.

Everyday, first thing I do in the morning is I google search to look for a way to bring about the rapture faster. This article came up because god's chosen political party (the tea party) becoming unpopular = end of times.

Re: Tea Party again, surprise surprise
Again, many of us have questioned since the beginning the REAL motives for the origin of the tea party.

I may be wrong, but didn't Ron Paul kinda start the Tea Party? Except that the uber right kinda took over and mangled it into what it is today. The Tea Party RP initiated is a far cry from what this one is.... Similar, yes. Just a lot less of the crazy.....

No, it was pretty much created by Fox News. You may recall that they had their little "Tea Party Protest" for tax day in 2010 with their hosts holding rallies in several cities (which, of course, is completely "fair and balanced" and an example of their slogan of "we report, you decide" and not at all them creating the news, no, sir.)


Rrhain

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

Why are lefties and other socialists so upset with the Tea Party?

Haven't the lefties and socialists had their own advocacy organizations for years?

What's the problem, can't they take the competition?

(And did anyone realize that "Taxed Enough Already" is the origin of the name?)

(And did anyone realize that this website is for creation/evolution debates, not politics? Want to stick to those subjects?)

Because they're the same ol' unemployed racist rump that has always been the base of the Republican Party, only now we all have to pretend that it's "patriotic" to photoshop Obama into a watermelon field and complain about government takeovers of Medicare?

Haven't the lefties and socialists had their own advocacy organizations for years?

Haven't the conservatives always complained endlessly about that?

I'm not a socialist.

Actually, I'm not upset with the tea party. They are a source of humor. And they are dragging the Republicans so far to the right, that they may well fall off the cliff.

Could you provide some evidence for the "unemployed" claim directed at Tea Party members vs. the usual leftie/socialist protesters? Any real numbers available?

And by the way, the charge of "racist" has just about been used up as a pejorative. You can only cry "wolf" so often before it fades into meaninglessness. The lefties/socialists have succeeded in taking a once-legitimate charge and running it into the ground.

And are you saying it is always "racist" to disagree with the direction medical care is headed under the current administration? Or are you just obfuscating?

And why can't we keep this site limited to the creation/evolution issues? Why do leftists/socialists keep trying to push their flawed agenda in places it wasn't designed for?

Don't you get tired of walking into these buzzsaws, Coyote?

Could you provide some evidence for the "unemployed" claim directed at Tea Party members vs. the usual leftie/socialist protesters?

quote:
With No Jobs, Plenty of Time for Tea Party

When Tom Grimes lost his job as a financial consultant 15 months ago, he called his congressman, a Democrat, for help getting government health care.

Then he found a new full-time occupation: Tea Party activist.


http://www.nytimes.com/.../03/28/us/politics/28teaparty.html

And by the way, the charge of "racist" has just about been used up as a pejorative.

Well, good. Maybe then you can stop complaining more about people being called "racist" than about actual racism.

And are you saying it is always "racist" to disagree with the direction medical care is headed under the current administration?

Did I say that somewhere? Can you be specific?

Why do leftists/socialists keep trying to push their flawed agenda in places it wasn't designed for?

Why do you think it's "lefties/socialists" who are doing that? Seems like you've opened a couple of political threads in your day, Coyote. IOKIYAR, I guess.

And yet you post in every single one that gets put up..... Tell me: what do you believe the purpose of the Coffee House section of this board to be?

If this website is degenerating into a leftist/socialist playground it isn't on my shoulders.

Those who disagree with that agenda have been silent so long that lefties and socialists think they own the playing field. They aren't used to any disagreement. That is changing, and it's about time.

Better get used to it.

But then we could always stick to creation/evolution here. That would be nice too, eh?

Sorry, the days when those on the left can expect to post their opinions, as if they were mainstream, and to go unopposed are over.

Yea, if you then bitch about them being here. It's a bit like complaining about a riot right after you boosted a stereo from the corner store. Like I told CS when he said the exact same thing: if you don't like political topics here, complain to Percy. Tell him to perhaps get rid of the coffee house section.

Sorry, the days when those on the left can expect to post their opinions, as if they were mainstream, and to go unopposed are over.

Then PLEASE, for the love of Odin: have rational discourse about the subject instead of just screaming "SOCIALIST" over and over. You still refuse to tell me why I, as a lower-middle class american, should vote conservative/republican. What are they doing for me?
