  • Liberals: Schlonged is bad, but Teabagging OK

    When Donald Trump made the statement that Hillary Clinton got "schlonged" in the 2008 election, he was immediately set upon by the liberal media for the use of a vulgarity. Donald Trump is being criticized for the below video, where the presidential candidate says Hillary Clinton got "schlonged" when she lost to President Obama in 2008. By Trump turning the word "schlong" into the verb "schlonged" to describe a woman losing to a man, "The Donald" is being taken to the mat for using the vulgar slang, which describes a man's penis, in such a manner. Trump used the word...

    Learning a new language doesn't have to be hard, especially when "Tea Bag" is so minimalistic! Mark Fiore offers his personal take in this animation.

Only 18 percent of New York State likely voters consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement, but they back Paladino 77 - 18 percent.

    In 2009 the week prior to the first national Tea Party rallies in cities across the nation I had made up my mind to attend my local rally but I also wanted to make an additional statement prior to April 15th, so I decided to send a respectful letter to President Obama and inform him that Socialism was not an option for the People of the United States. Along with the letter I enclosed a Mr. Boston Tea Bag. Well, this year I've decided to turn the practice into a tradition and do it again. Below is my letter along...

    Inside 42's lunch with Senate Dems ^ | 11/10/2009 | CAROL E. LEE & CARRIE BUDOFF BROWN
    With the issue he has positioned to be his crowning achievement as president at a crossroads, Barack Obama once again called on his former rival to help him follow through. Former President Bill Clinton told a room full of Democratic senators Tuesday that passing health care reform — which he failed to do 15 years ago — is not only a moral issue but also “an economic imperative.” Clinton argued that even “the most cold-hearted person” ought to support health care reform simply from an economic standpoint. He reminded Democrats of the political momentum their failure to pass reform in...

    In the midst of his yearend push to pass sweeping health reform legislation, the last thing President Obama needs is another dustup with the tea party set. Is it possible that he referred to them as “teabag” people in discussions with House Democrats? Update: a Democratic Representative’s office responds — see end of post. Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people...

    Barack Hussein Obama II, used a crude gay-baiting sexual slur to denigrate Tea Party patriots in a talk with House Democrats yesterday on Capitol Hill, reported the New York Times:According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”The word 'teabag' is used to describe a sexual practice popular in the homosexual community. Earlier this year as the anti-big...

    Hey, Janeane Garofalo, how do you like your tea? It’s been a few weeks since the outspoken comedian and actress (“24”) called tea party tax protesters racists, but she is still in hot water with some Bay Staters. A group of steamed citizens led by conservative radio talk host Ken Pittman of New Bedford’s WBSM-AM plan to protest outside her gig tonight at the Somerville Theatre. “She has exposed herself as a bigot,” Pittman said. About 20 to 40 people are expected to show up, he said. Garofalo sparked controversy when she criticized the protesters while on MSNBC’s “Countdown with...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | April 17, 2009 | Don Feder
    It was predictable that The New York Times would take one of two approaches to the nationwide Tax Day Tea Parties on April 15 — ignore them completely or downplay them. It chose the latter. In a story yesterday, it tried to portray the phenomenon as a partisan project, driven by conservative personalities at FOX and CNBC. In reality, it was grassroots groups like American Family Association that had more to do with the largest anti-tax protests in U.S. history. The Times listed a few of the smaller rallies, to make the Tea Parties seem piddling — “200 rain-soaked participants”...

    I just saw Pelosi on the news. I couldn't believe her sneering at the tens of thousands of tea party participants, saying that the tea parties weren't a grassroots movement, but was an artificial "Astroturf" movement that was bought by nameless unknown parties. Let's show Pelosi and our Congresscritters how much we care. I plan to snip a 1 inch square of my artificial turf doormat and mail it and a teabag to Speaker Pelosi, and to my elected "representative". Wbat a great way to protest her snide statement! I hope everyone will join me. Go out and buy a...

    A member at ar15.com sent his congressman a teabag in the mail to protest their spending, and now his congressman's office is threatening him. The member says, "I told her no malice intended and asked if it was illegal to mail a teabag. I told her it was a in protest in response to the votes of the Congressman. I also told her I thought maybe they would enjoy a good cup of tea this afternoon. She was not amused but acted dumb as to why I sent it. She also said a RECORD of this would be made." Here...

    As the tea party rallies of regular hard working productive Americans continues around the nation is it not time to come up with a logo for the resistance? Should we not have a flag to rally around and carry into battle as our founders did? Certainly the American flag is more than worthy as is the great "Don't Tread on Me" flag but I think the creative minds of FREEP can come up with something for this great cause. Get to work.
