    Re: Mega TEA Party

    mega,

    the usa right wing is easily well organized & exploited by the oligarchs. they enlist the right to defend the banks' and insurance companies' right to rape them.

    'i demand the right to be raped by insurance companies! you cannot take away that right! if you try you are a socialist! or hitler! or something!'

    see, mega, that is why we're fucked.

          There were about 60,000 to 70,000 here today, according to police estimates.

          Two million filled the entire length and width of the Mall and shut down the city last January. This was nowhere near that scale.

          IMO the teabaggers are much ado about nothing. I could get 60,000 to march on DC in favor of eliminating the designated hitter in the American League if I had one of the major news networks pimping my cause with free advertising 24/7.

            i'm sorry, but you apparently do not watch American television or ever attended an American university.

            Communist indoctrination is nearly sole purpose of all major propaganda enterprises of the nation.

            The public rejection of government run healthcare is simply due to the obvious ineptitude of nearly all government enterprises. Perhaps, if we had a greater sense of civic duty in this nation, things would be different. But they are not.

                OMG one of those protestors had a sign up "Glen Beck for president" - I would say he at least, is one of the people MM alluded to protesting for his / her right to be raped - its hard not to agree with MM on his points. I am not sure these people are stupid, it is question of information access, what is one to do, how does one break the propoganda effect?, as Fred commented in a previous thread (I think heath care, dont have the link), even well informed readers here on Itulip can be subject to the left right paradigm, it is very depressing to say the least and augers little hope. :confused:

                  I think you are confusing the causes and the effects. It's much more blended together than "FOX promotes tea parties, therefore tea parties are big events." In my opinion, FOX has a rather ingenious business model. They have some uncanny sense of upcoming popular trends, and feed into it. They very quickly overtook CNN as the dominant 24/7 "News" network because of their "personality" model. CNN tried to follow, with Anderson Cooper et al, but they also decreased the quality of their Headline News and meat-and-potatoes daily broadcast with random bullshit segments. Combine FOX's trend-finding ability with the fact that they have not forgotten the most basic principles of mass media--sex and violence sell--and you get a rock star of a cable network. That's just my opinion, but the proof is in the pudding. They saw tea parties as being one of the next big news things, and each has been mutually feeding into each other.

                  The "teabaggers" [deleted by admin for disrespectful language] (and you are despicable for using that term) are not much ado about nothing. You could not get 60,000 to march in DC and thousands more around the country to assemble on the same day for any other cause at the moment. That is, of course, unless you try to take credit for assembling people for the Independence Day celebrations :rolleyes:

                  Hopefully something good will come of it, and it will not serve to simply split the opposition and ensure never-ending government growth.

                    When was there a time when the rednecks in the South and the haters in the Heartland were not ready to get out their guns and revolt?

                    Anything sets them off, any hint of change.... And who in the h. cares? Let them secede and good riddance to all of them! Let them take their FOX News TV and their Michael Savage with them too.:rolleyes:

                      yeah, gotta brain-wash them ALL with lefty spin from Media Matters, right?
                      why should we expect any kind of sound governance -- let's just spend our
                      way into oblivian.

                        Are you suggesting the usa left wing is any less of a problem? If so, I respectfully disagree.

                          TPC, I think MM is referring to the big "O", or bloodsuckers as Medved would have it.

                            Oh, my God...

                            Where were these morons when "W" was doubling the national debt? Oh, yeah. That was different. He was "protecting" America by invading a country halfway around the world. Now that tax revenues have collapsed and we're borrowing and printing like crazy...well, finally they take notice. How far behind the curve can you get?

                            If they want true pay-as-you-go government, maybe we need to cut out some of the entitlements and programs we've become accustomed to:

                            1. Eliminate Social Security and Medicare except for the most economically needy.
                            2. Eliminate WIC, unemployment insurance, and the like
                            3. Cut the size of the military in half: since when was it our job to be the world's policeman?

                            At the same time raise taxes back up to the rates we had during the Reagan years. The bottom end of the income spectrum have received much of the benefit of the tax cuts. The top end can probably afford to kick a little extra in too.

                            Does this sound cold? Maybe it is, but it will never happen. All I know is that when some of these people eventually lose their health insurance through job loss or go bankrupt because of a major illness, they'll likely understand the other side of the argument.

                            Instead, they protest and draw little mustaches on the president's picture. He's been in office for less than a year. Whether you like or dislike the guy, he doesn't deserve that. What everyone should be thankful for is that we at least got a conversation started about a very difficult topic that will require some hard choices one way or the other. No, forget that. It's easier to draw mustaches than to come to the table with an original idea.

                            Glenn Beck for president? Give me a break.

                              Exactly B Cass.

                              If this was anything other than some combination of partisan hackery, racism and a general desire to continue the make-believe they've lived for the past decade these same ass-clowns running around DC with their Glen Beck blow up dolls would have found plenty of reason to object before January 2009.

                              They didn't. They don't deserve to be taken seriously now.
