I had promised myself I was done with the TeaBagging and what not and the foolishness that it was. But alas, I lied. Fellow blogging dude over at AverageBro gave me an idea for a post.
I’m not sure if he realised he put his foot on the gas, but he brought up this idea in a recent post:
…are we supposed to believe this is a “bi-partisan, grassroots effort aimed at reckless gubb’ment spending and taxation”? If so, why’d this Great American get booed for simply telling the truth? [In reference to a posted YouTube clip]
I won’t lie to you, when I heard there was a Tea Party being planned for DC, I seriously thought about going for the very same reason. As one of the few Negroes in the crowd, I have little doubt I would have gotten on camera/stage with ease.
What if this had been a bi-partisan movement?
That is to say that wouldn’t this had been a powerful grassroots movement of the people if we all protested the frivolous spending on behalf of the government? Seriously, hearing the stuff that gets earmarked and passed even to me sounds ridiculous. But no, this turned into some FoxNews orgy of Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Neil Cavuto simultaneously circle jerking on the heads of social conservatives who seemingly fail to see that they’re being nutted on.
Great analogy right?
At least intellectual masturbators seem to have a greater intent behind their feeling themselves amongst one another and the listeners at least participate and it becomes a great lovefest for all participants.
Okay, enough with that analogy, but y’all get my point.
In other news…
In the 10th anniversary of the Columbine Massacre of 1999, why are we still debating whether or not there needs to be a ban on assault weapons in this country?
This is a small post, just wanted to drop that off on you all.
