Just think of the balanced budget George Bush left us with. And now absolute financial catastrophe leading to civil strife and the End Times

The funniest thing about the teabaggers is how they convince themselves and those in their bubble that AMERICA IS BEHIND US AND CHEERING US ON!  apparently unaware that most people have Dueling Banjos playing in their head whenever they see these yokels.

You got to hand it to conservatives.  They have an amazing amount of chutzpah to try to use these closings as an attack on Obama.

Of course, making it easier for them, is the fact that too many of their supporters are living in a echo chamber where any sort of BS can be catapulted and they'll swallow the propaganda eagerly and rabidly.

So even their chutzpah, like their outrage, is counterfeit.

one speaker saying Obama is not the president of "the" people but "his" people. Multiple signs read "Impeach Obama."But don't you dare call them racist

I also like how they keep complaining about the cost of the barricades.

Cuz I'm sure those cheap-o metal things that they already own and have sitting in a warehouse somewhere cost so much to zip tie together and hang a sign from.

You know what this whole fed park thing is about?  It's called "Counting coup".  Some tribes of Native Americans did this in their history.  Basically it was a way of making yourself look more like a badass by tapping your enemy with a stick while he was still able to resist.  Sort of like teabagging that dude you fragged in Halo.  Counting coup is what this is about... a pack of idiots desperately trying to win points in a game nobody cares about and nobody will ever cash in for them.

NutWrench: "I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up," said Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group.

Obama will put his Quran down when Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group, puts down his crack pipe.


They are entirely within their rights to use nonviolent civil disobedience to advance their agenda. It will work as well for them as it did for the OWS crowd two years ago. If they want to actually achieve their goals, they will have to use violentcivil disobedience. Of course at that point the government is well within its rights to arrest them, charge them with treason and throw them in jail. I'm not advocating the latter course, but frankly if they don't carry through on their rhetoric they're nothing but a bunch of pussies, amirite? If things are as bad as they say they are, it's their duty to engage in armed rebellion against the United States. If they have any balls, they'll do it. The fact that they won't do it indicates that a) their complaints are, to put it mildly, overblown, and they know it, and/or b) they have no balls.

Signs that you hate America and freedom, and are too stupid to live, and should kill yourself in order to improve the gene pool:

- You think Obama is a Muslim
- You care if Obama is a Muslim
- You have doubts about Obama's birth certificate
- You are a Republican

ImpendingCynic: Alphakronik: [wonkette.com image 494x351]

Where's this guy when you need him?

He only gets called when OWS does precisely what these memorial protesters did. But that's OK - breaking the law is fine if you think you have a noble purpose.


I don't remember the OWS protesters tearing down barricades.

FTFA: After the speeches, the crowd wandered down to the nearby Lincoln Memorial and removed its barriers as well. When some officers tried to put them back up, protesters took them from the officers' hands... Taking something from a police officer usually will get you tased (at least.)

Think about this for a second:  in order for the fascists to take power in Europe, it took people suffering through the worst economic conditions of the century following what was the largest war the world had seen.

For fascists to take power in the US, it just took a black guy being elected President.  These people aren't hungry, they aren't suffering, they aren't in danger.

They're just horrible, horrible people.

I am actually growing a little tired of these stories about some guy at a rally saying something stupid.  Seriously, This is news?

Some guy gets up at a rally, and says a bunch of stupid crap and CNN runs with it like it is a big deal....

Meanwhile
Republicans created a healthcare plan
http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2012/02/07/the-tortuous-co ns ervative-history-of-the-individual-mandate/


They pushed for this plan over the course of 2 decades, and they even supported this plan as late as 2008

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthy_Americans_Act

 Then
When The democrats agreed to adopt this plan, the GOP suddenly (and at that point only) decided the plan was unconstitutional and posed a grave threat to the nation.

They sued in the supreme court but lost
http://www.scribd.com/doc/98544934/Supreme-Court-upholds-Affordable- Care-Act

They ran presidential candidate who opposed the Affordable Care Act even though he had passed a nearly identical law in the State of Massachusetts
http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2011/10/20/how-a-conservat iv e-think-tank-invented-the-individual-mandate/

Obama was re-elected with the Affordable Care Act being a center piece of the election
http://www.politico.com/2012-election/map/


Deciding that the Affordable Care Act was a serious threat to the nation, the GOP engineered a strategy of threatening a Government Shutdown to protest the Affordable Care Act.

To pull this off
The Republicans strategized how to engineer the shutdown, and how to handle the spin
http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2013/10/05/federal-budget-cri si s-months-planning/bhA7OHhAIBvNNincmzdtjJ/story.html


80 members of congress signed a letter to force the shutdown.
http://www.freedomworks.org/blog/jwithrow/does-your-senator-stand-wi th -mike-lee-against-obam


They said a shutdown would not be a bad thing
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/07/30/ted- cr uz-government-shutdown-wouldnt-be-so-bad/

They celebrated when it happened
http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/republicans-shut-down-the- go vernment-but-they-cant-stop-obamacare-20131001


The House Republicans changed a long standing House Rule at the last minute to ensure the shutdown would stay in effect:
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/the-house-gop-s-little-rule-change-t ha t-guaranteed-a-shutdown

When challenged about this, the republicans would not address the issue.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Jd-iaYLO1A

All the while
They accused the Democrats and Obama of not negotiating, even though the democrats tried repeatedly to negotiate
http://www.nationaljournal.com/congress/19-times-democrats-tried-to- ne gotiate-with-republicans-20131007?mrefid=mostread

Which should not have been necessary since Harry Reid and John Boehner had a deal, that Boehner backed out of.

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/326425-reid-boehner-backed-out-of -d eal

And despite all of this,
The Radical wing of the GOP will still blame Obama for the Shutdown

http://www.latimes.com/opinion/topoftheticket/la-na-tt-republicans-b la me-obama-20131006,0,2739790.story


Meanwhile

In 2001, The GOP President and GOP Congress
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/72/Combined--Control _o f_the_U.S._House_of_Representatives_-_Control_of_the_U.S._Senate.png

inherited a projected budget surplus and a projected elimination of the entire debt within 10 years.
http://clinton4.nara.gov/WH/new/html/Fri_Dec_29_151111_2000.html


The GOP then passed a tax cut,
http://www.cbo.gov/publication/41463

waged an expensive war
http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-03-28/world/38097452_1_iraq- price-tag-first-gulf-war-veterans

and repeatedly voted to raise the debt ceiling with no demands on spending cuts.
2002 vote: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2002/roll279.xml
2003 vote: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/108-2003/s202

2007 vote: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/110-2007/s354


Then
When a Democrat was in the Whitehouse, the GOP decided it was worth risking a default to place demands on spending cuts.
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/boehner-u-s-will-default-if-ob am a-doesn-t-cave-on-the-debt-limit


And to top it all off,
I have gotten almost all of this information from a joke of a website called "FARK" who's mascot is a god damned squirrel trying to shove his nut sack in everybody's face.

Meanwhile CNN runs a story about some crazy guy at a protest saying something crazy.
