The t-party crew walked into a church and killed a doctor because they like what he was doing. That was in Wichita,KS. The t-party does want to dismantle our government. They don't want women to have any rights. M. Bachmann said you should be submissive and do whatever they want you to do. They want rich white men & women to take over the country. They don't care if our kids have good schools and they hate unions because they give the money to people that need it. They believe blacks and mexicans should all be locked up. They think standing around holding their machine guns is cool while babbling about the bible. -Sequester-Sized Government Waste Can Go First
Dear Comrade Catball,
The difference between the Taliban and the Tea Party is that the Tea Party believes in constitutional government as expressed in the United States Constitution. The Taliban believes in Sharia law as expressed in the Quran and Shunna, or the life of the prophet Muhammad.
The Tea Party supports your right to be let alone, the Taliban wants to make it a capital crime for you to fly a kite.
As to George Tillers death in Wichita, KS, I cant find any material that supports your notion that Scott Roeder, the man who killed Tiller, was a Tea Party member. Instead, he is an avowed prolife activist who thinks that abortion is a crime. He got life in prison with no parole.
You seem to be arguing that Michele Bachmann, arguably one of the more influential women in the US- by virtue of her role in congress- is saying that women should be subordinate to men. I think her actions say otherwise. She did run for president after all...against a bunch of men.
I'm sorry. I had trouble typing that last line because I had to reload my semi-automatic weapon that I use to change the channels on cable TV.
The rest of your rant is too stupid to be addressed seriously.
Proverbs 26:28 A lying tongue hates the truth and the malicious mouth works trouble.
Who do you think you are? Ezra Klein?

Dear Comrade Urban,
If were running for office, I would propose:
1) Impose term limits on Congress.
2) Enact a single-subject rule in Congress to prevent pork barrel spending from being inserted into bills, say, on disaster relief.
3) Limit all legislation to 100 pages.
4) Enact a balanced budget amendment to the constitution.
5) Scrap the current tax code in favor of a flat tax or fair tax.
6) Allow no bills be introduced unless they qualified under the 10thAmendment as powers specifically reserved for the federal government.

Dear Comrade 469,
John Boehner helped Obama get his tax increases through congress. If that doesnt qualify as a liberal, Boehner sure did a pretty good imitation of it.
Heres the thing: After campaigning for two years as dead-set against tax increases, its a little much for Boehner to change his mind within hours of the general election tally to decide that tax increases are OK.
The problem with party politics is that both parties really stand for the same things right now. Until the GOP offers more than just cosmetic differences, the conservative base wont take them seriously.

Comment of the week, brother.

Dear Comrade Bitters,
Yeah. Score one for you. The sentence should say natural disaster rather than weather event.
The scoreboard reads: Ransom 5,847 to BitO 1.
Thats even worse than the Chicago Bears beating the Green Bay Packers 2-0 in 1938.
The Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears played in a downpour that kept scoring to a bare minimum at City Stadium on Sept. 18, 1938. The Bears won 2-0.
Packers quarterback Arnie Herber's failure to handle a low snap from punt formation led to Chicago's only score. The Bears got a safety after the Packers' Tom Jones fell on the ball in the end zone.
The Packers' Clarke Hinkle missed a 37-yard field goal three plays from the end of the game.
Congrats, Comrade Bito-Hinkle.

Dear Comrade 64,
The two parties to which blame can be assigned for the housing crisis are the Democrats and the Republicans.
Once the parties teamed up to allow the Community Reinvestment Act, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the other quasi-government banks to guarantee mortgages, it was all over.
Banks and homeowners just did the natural thing, which is to do what they thought was in their best interest.
I will give banks credit for trying to invent ways to monetize subprime mortgages in a way that would lessen risk. Their math was off, but they didnt really need to do that.
The one thing that TARP proved was that the banks were right when they guessed that the federal government would guarantee the banking industry against disaster come what may.
From our own Dan Mitchell:
I’d limit all legislation to 10 pages. Shorter is harder and you really have to think about what you’re putting in it.
Hmmmmmm. Let's say your car broke down. Would you rather it broke down outside a gathering of Taliban or Tea Partiers?
We have term limits here in California and we are completely under the thumb of RATS.
Careful what you wish for.
That is an excellent point, because candidates can promise you anything just to get your vote. Once elected though they forget their promises and do what they want.
Hmmmmmm. Let’s say your car broke down. Would you rather it broke down outside a gathering of Taliban or Tea Partiers?
Let’s say your *17-year-old daughter’s* car broke down. Would you rather it broke down outside a gathering of Taliban or Tea Partiers?
