Did you really think they just passed around a three-cornered hat?
Big corporations make contributions to Republican organizations like FreedomWorks, chaired by Dick Armey, who pour money and support into the bitter tea pot. What do the billionaire boys get out of their contributions? Less government and more freedom in big business equates to less regulation and bigger profit margins. The stock market has risen in recent months. Ask yourself why the unemployment rate is still high.

Another clueless Obamite who can see the handwriting on the wall.
Uh, because profit is not a dirty word and because we much prefer capitalism and freedom over socialism and enslavement. Keep the government within its constitutional bounds and set our people free!!
Peace through superior firepower!!
Big business LOVES big bureaucracy. The one thing that terrifies big business more than anything else is totally free open competition. No one to bribe, no competitors to legislate out of business.
Amazing how the Left continues to demonize the health insurance companies, considering that many of those companies are financially backing Martha Coakley to keep that 60th Demonrat vote in the Senate so 0bamacare can be rammed through.
The left is jealous. That’s what this article is really saying about the ongoing Tea Party movement.
Why dont these cowardly socialists just move to Cuba and make us all happy
Except Castro . . .
One of the reasons the Tea Party movement is so successful is that the left is still so clueless as to what it is about, who is participating in it, and why we are doing it.
Amen. Can anybody name a conservative Republican billionaire? I can’t think of any.
I have a question: what entitles YOU to MY money, Cheryl?
This article should end with a musical...”Just give peace a chance.......” HA!
They ARE jealous...ha. The “Masses” are organzing..but not under the direction and authority of the Left.
Marx would be furious at them!
Tea Party? What are they talking about? Not those one hundred or so citizens that they told me were at a rally!/s
No, not jealous - more like scared sh!tless. Combine the Tea Party movement with Sarah Palin and you have the left’s nightmare that will never end.
Hallmarks of Liberalism: Ingratitude + Envy
Uhhh, why don’t we compare the “big business” contributions to Dem party candidates and the DNC vs the GOP & the RNC? Think we’re at 8:1, 10:1?
This is the kind of brain dead bumper-sticker thinking that’s a waste of neurons to even respond to.
The author Cheryl Kook comes off like a transplanted Valley Girl.
I notice how dated her information is with references twice to 2007. Seems she’s right timely.
Her plea at the grand finale of the article struck me as perhaps something out of Ms. Congeniality.
obviously, the author has never even been to a Tea Party, or surely they would have witnessed the signs protesting insurance companies and their sweetheart deals for mandated ‘health care’.
Read the comments.
They call Tea Party members wusses.
Bring it bitches.
Liberals really haven’t got a clue of who their messing with. None.
They complain that we have corporations funding us but that isn’t the truth. What the hell would they do if Soros suddenly dropped dead and stopped funding them?
**I have seen depictions of our president as an African witch doctor, a black-faced minstrel and a monkey. I have heard him called a liar by a member of the House of Representatives.**
and these are SAINTLY Depictions Compared to what this WHINER called GW
Yeah, some "fat cats" in suits smoking cigars were handing out "The Agenda" pamphlets in DC on 9/12. And we all did exactly as we were told. Yeah...
I know. That sure would have been bad.
Cheryl is a typical, uninformed idiot...
I researched as much as I possibly could during the campaigns. I knew the “Won’s” plan for a Global Tax Proposal written about when he was a senator in February of 2008, and it wasn’t the FIRST thing I found out about him. If Cheryl knew about the Millennium Declaration back in 2008 that the “Won” was espousing, I’ll bet I’m a Sophia Loren look-a-like. Cheryl and her “ilk” saw NOTHING past the color of his skin and failed in her RESPONSIBILITY to research those that would wield power over us-—SHAME on her and the offal that brought this FRAUD to the rest of us.
And, just for the hell of it, I don’t remember any corporations “supporting” or having a DAMNED thing to say about the Tea Party in Atlanta, in FEBRUARY, in the pouring down rain, when patriotic, tax-paying, God fearing producers took time from their JOBS to protest the socialist creep into our great country......THAT’S RIGHT...FEBRUARY, 2008. Most people think the first Tea Party was April 15th, 2008. WE were pissed off (for good reason) WAY before April. Bet Cheryl doesn’t know THAT, either. (I’ll hazard a guess she’s on Soros’ payroll...idiot...I hope she hasn’t spawned...if she HAS, I’ll say a prayer for her children.)
WOW! Now that’s some STRONG tea! That’s 3 - there should be about 97 more. ;)
They went from the ‘ignore’ button to the ‘fear’ button mighty quick - I’m loving it!
And they drove us to DC and paid for hotel. Gotta love those billionaires.
Because they... set the agenda!
The only way to get at these liberals is to win. They don’t go away and leave you along, but you have the comfort of knowing they are miserable. But then, they’re usually miserable.
This is one twisted piece of mental masturbatory logic (so many logical fallacies in so little space). More profits might also mean more jobs. Yes the stock market has risen but the unemployment rate is still high might and that might mean that Obama is helping Wall Street while doing nothing to help Main Street.
It would seem that our drooling genius considers a rising stock market to be as undesirable as rising unemployment. And who might bear the responsibility for both?
Nevada City has found it’s idiot.
The tea parties I went to would have put bailed out bankers just behind Congressmen on the list of people to chase through the streets with torches and pitch forks.
No I will go and actually read the article.
“If we want peace abroad, we must start with peace at home.”
Really? What are “your” terms”. Maybe I reject them.
Why do I think your terms are part of some collectivist ideal that erodes the right of the individual, which necessarily makes it the governments business to take care of each of us, collectively?
Why isn't the Tea Party indignant over the banking industry...
Why isn't the Tea Party even mildly concerned about executives from Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, and ConocoPhillips...
Because Cheryl, none of those people force me to give them money at the end of a gun. Government does. I can go my whole life without paying a penny to any of those companies, but I have to give money to the Government.
Tell me, why aren't you upset with the Government for handing out your tax dollars to all of the above?
Because you are a socialist, Cheryl, and you think that Government can do no wrong.
When you think like a Leftist, you will never see the Revolution coming... That is a good thing..
Big Corporations are too busy donating to liberal causes and supporting Obama’s agenda.
'Cheryl Cook lives in Nevada City'.
Nevada City, Ca seems like one of those artsy-fartsy Hippy communities -- there's a lot of 'notable people' from there that nobody's ever heard of -- and it has a population less than 3,000.
So I'm surprised Cheryl had time to write this?
Putting her Bong down for ten minutes must have been stressful.
We’re coming to get you, Cheryl - 60 million armed patriots are about to crush your Tinkerbell fascist utopia. No more welfare for fat mommas, no more SS disability for her commie kids, no more unions, no more commie teachers in schools.
Canada still has a few spots open for you goosesteppers. Hurry now. Time is short. U Haul is running out of trucks. And if we send you packing, it’s one-way to North Korea, baby.
The author of this piece gives us nothing by a left wing puke puddle...and a shallow one at that.
Because that is a lie that has no base in fact.
I recognize that quote from Sen. Diane Feistein.
Has anyone seen the Jan 10. 2010 news that Rupert Murdoch owner of Fox News) son in law , Matthew Freud, has quit the News Corps. “I am ashamed and sickened by Roger Ailes ( President of Fox News) sustained disregard of the journalistic standards that News Corps, its founder, and every other glogal media business aspires to.” Fox news having no journalistic standards????
FreedomWorks and their subsidiaty PAC, sponsor and organize the TP movement. It is a right wing organization funded by Corporate billionaires like the Kochs, Scaife, Olin .......look it up. They arent going to stand in the rain.
Bringing my children into the discussion makes you the typical, uninformed idiot. Save your prayers for America at the mercy of Wall Street and Big Business because Bush looked the other way for eight years.
Kochs, Scaife, Olin...look up billionaire supporters of Freeomworks and see who is pulling your strings
