What would a Tea Party Utopia look like? Part 1

What would a Tea Party Utopia look like? Part 1

In following the actions of governors, candidates, congresspersons, and senators, I am speculating this is what a Tea Party Utopia would look like.

Obama’s Law Making in first two years came AFTER “shellacking”

If you recall, the American People first had to make a credible threat against his losing his job by electing a bunch of even bigger loser Republicans to Congress – Obama’s self described “shellacking” - before Obama would apply himself to Public Service. Look at the distribution of his attempts to serve the American People over his first two years of his term.

Obama's Midwest Tour: Whew! Finally some relief from this economy in the form of Speeches!

Whew! Finally! some relief from this economy! I can't wait until Obama brings some of his speeches to my town!

Actually, the local used car dealership is hiring salespeople and I think Obama is coming to set up his next job.

I Like Ike!

Yep, I Like Ike. Just as Thom says that it is best not to create a third party (to the left of the Dems) because it dooms BOTH the Liberal candidates; it is much better to reform the party from "within". He's absolutely right! That's why I stay in the Republican Party in the somewhat vain hope of reforming it back to the Conservative, yet "populist" party of Eisenhower.

Welcome to my blog, said the spider to the fly

Come back soon and I will have made a few pithy remarks. I meant what I said. Listen carefully or I will edit your personal info.


The Rich have used the Government to create a criminal enterprise

It is almost too late. There is no question how the people would vote if given a real choice - - they are ready to storm the gates of the castle and abolish the current feudal system. The really rich have the money and power to control not only the Government but also most major corporations - - - and they are getting more money and power every day, Their major initiatives: "free trade", "immigration reform", "bail-outs", "perpetual wars", "media control", "debt limit fallacy", "elimination of labor as major cost factor in business", "market manipulation".

Corporate Tax Rates

It dawned on me after watching a 60 minutes piece on corporations moving their headquarters out of the Country to avoid paying income taxes. What’s changed since Ike was President, when corporations paid 47% of profit in income tax. Today I think it’s around 6%.

Ron Paul on Sunday: Hypocrisy in Action

Did anyone catch Ron Paul's little "dog whistle" to the Theocrats in his speech in Iowa before the straw poll? I haven't found an exact transcript of it but I heard him appeal to the RWAs by asserting that the (tyrranical) Federal Government is sending armed IRS agents to steal their (the Tea Partiers') hard earned money and deliver it to the Abortionists (among other BAD groups).

Atheist Insurance

In the case of the Atheist, is the Insured (Atheist) bound by clauses which refer to Acts of God? Acts of God is a third party liability loophole in favor of the Insuror. Acts of God assigns status to God as a blameless legal entity in a lawsuit.
