Princess Ryans Knickers: Mrtraveler01: I've been waiting for this thread since Boehner made those comments yesterday.

What took so long?

First it had to make the rounds on sites like Reddit, Digg, Yahoo, and FWD:FWD:FWD:FWD.  Next, they had to make sure all funny and mocking headlines were rejected. Next, they had to wait for Drew to sober up and decide what to actually greenlight.


Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait. Digg still exists?

He wants to cut spending and increase taxes on the top 1%. How is that NOT a moderate position/

Must be, I still keep getting e-mails from them even though I haven't been on it in nearly 6 years.

crab66: "We are the American people!"


Forget about the other 275 million or so of you. It's just us!


This is what happens when you keep referring to a small minority as "Real America". They start to believe it.

One of these things is not like the others . . .

We live in a truly farked up universe when people think Boehner is anything but a hard-right ideologue.
 
2013-12-13 06:42:45 PM

QuesoDelicioso: But doesn't tax & spend make a dickload more sense than borrow & spend if one worries about deficits and such?


You forget the recent addition to the Tea Party agenda, which is to default on the debt. That solves the whole deficit problem in just one day.

comments there are amazingly entertaining.  
  "REJECT PHONY LIBERALISM! - JOIN THE TEA PARTY"
  "the push that sends Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, and all the other RINO's out the door"
  "the RNC is an enemy of Conservatives"
  "What's extreme about the Tea Party agenda? Please give one concrete example"

I cannot understand how they are oblivious to the cause of their problems.  The "us versus them, all or nothing" mentality is nothing but the definition of division, and they wonder why the Republican party is fracturing.

All that effort put into achieving a permanent republican majority and all they got for it was teatards.

Alas, it stops being fun when they pull out the charts and graphs. You're better just to imagine Karl Marx in leather chaps, and after all, weren't we all doing that already? I hear all the center right president supporters are into it these days.

HotWingConspiracy: "The last time we checked, we are the American people," the letter said.

Well, you're also a really small political minority that can't get out of its own way and constantly makes it harder to actually achieve your stated goals.

I hope everyone understands that these people will start shooting at us at some point.


Yes, and I'm sure the individuals in question - with their iron grasp on reality - visualize themselves as steely-eyed freedom fighters, striking out at a hated totalitarian regime, and that The People will join them when the time is right.

You know, like Timothy McVeigh

The problem you "elite" liberal "intellectuals" have is that you confine your thinking so much.  To you, every word has a dictionary definition, and that's the only way you can understand that word.  But a true free-thinker can throw out the dictionary and use words to mean entirely different things, vastly expanding the intellectual possibilities of philosophy and understanding.

Free your mind, slaves.

Yeah, NPR isn't exactly the bastion of liberalism these days. They've fallen into the same false-equivalency trap that most of the big outlets have.

Yup, that Boehner is a no good tax and spend liberal.  We need a real american tea party patriot to be house speaker.  Someone who will wear a nifty tricorn hat and a pair of pantaloons in the house.  Perhaps they can even write their speeches with a quill and ink instead of with this new fangled word processor.

Make it a bald eagle feather, so it's extra 'Merican. But you can't have the presidential bill signing pen giveaway stop, so we're going to have to pluck all the eagles. We can have grandmothers knit eagle snuggies, like Betsy Ross would have.

Yes! Primary him, and then replace him with a crazy right wing motherfarker who blurts out racist and misogynistic tirades and then turns out to have an extensive collection of child pornography just before the election. Run losers, repubs, so you'll lose! Then maybe we can go back to being a country with a functional government again instead of Weimar Germany circa 1932.

These days? Were you listening shortly after the start of the Iraq War fiasco when it was nothing but Middle-Eastern Muslim Professors talking about how of course the war wasn't going well but it would be Worth It in the End (tm)?

I like NPR and listen to it almost daily. But All Things Considered and Morning Edition are pretty standard centrist media institutions, though they go into more depth than you normally find.

It's like watching gladiators fight. I don't really give a shiat who wins, as long as it's bloody.

Lie in the bed you made for yourselves, GOP. You should have kicked these loonies to the curb immediately instead of flirting with them.

Reality is quite inconsequential.
 
2013-12-13 09:48:02 PM
From TFA:

"Tea Party Patriots said Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has "declared war on the Tea Party" with his "smug and pretentious rant" against certain right-wing organizations.

The group made the charge in a fundraising email to supporters, seeking to win donations over the public feuding.

In the past two days, Boehner has repeatedly attacked the conservative groups that championed the October effort to defund ObamaCare and are now opposed to the recent budget deal negotiated by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

He has criticized the groups for being more interested in raising money than actually solving problems."

So he was right about them then?
