Drink it knowing full well that the Tories were right as sequestration hits the American public.  Or as George Washington put it:

“The picture which you have exhibited, and the accounts which are published of the commotions, and temper of numerous bodies in the Eastern States, are equally to be lamented and deprecated. They exhibit a melancholy proof of what our trans-Atlantic foe has predicted; and of another thing perhaps, which is still more to be regretted, and is yet more unaccountable, that mankind when left to themselves are unfit for their own Government. I am mortified beyond expression when I view the clouds that have spread over the brightest morn that ever dawned upon any Country. In a word, I am lost in amazement when I behold what intrigue, the interested views of desperate characters, ignorance and jealousy of the minor part, are capable of effecting, as a scourge on the major part of our fellow Citizens of the Union; for it is hardly to be supposed that the great body of the people, tho’ they will not act, can be so shortsighted, or enveloped in darkness, as not to see rays of a distant sun thro’ all this mist of intoxication and folly.

You talk, my good Sir, of employing influence to appease the present tumults in Massachusetts. I know not where that influence is to be found; and if attainable, that it would be a proper remedy for the disorders. Influence is no Government. Let us have one by which our lives, liberties and properties will be secured; or let us know the worst at once. Under these impressions, my humble opinion is, that there is a call for decision. Know precisely what the insurgents aim at. If they have real grievances, redress them if possible; or acknowledge the justice of them, and your inability to do it in the present moment. If they have not, employ the force of government against them at once. If this is inadequate, all will be convinced that the superstructure is bad, or wants support. To be more exposed in the eyes of the world, and more contemptible than we already are, is hardly possible. To delay one or the other of these, is to exasperate on the one hand, or to give confidence on the other, and will add to their numbers; for, like snow-balls, such bodies increase by every movement, unless there is something in the way to obstruct and crumble them before the weight is too great and irresistible.”

Christmas Oldies

The Moody Blues: Don’t Need a Reindeer

I like the sentiment.

This one is appropriate to the Occupy Protests. I dedicate it to all those people who say the US is a Christian nation, yet are the most unchristian people I know. Unfortunately, they don’t know who they are.

As the song says:

Once in Royal David’s City stood a lowly cattle shed,
where a mother laid her baby.
You’d do well to remember the things He later said.
When you’re stuffing yourselves at the Christmas parties,
you’ll laugh when I tell you to take a running jump.
You’re missing the point I’m sure does not need making;
that Christmas spirit is not what you drink.

So how can you laugh when your own mother’s hungry
and how can you smile when the reasons for smiling are wrong?
And if I messed up your thoughtless pleasures,
remember, if you wish, this is just a Christmas song.

Hey, Santa: pass us that bottle, will you?

Another Christmas Song

Hope everybody’s ringing on their own bell, this fine morning.
Hope everyone’s connected to that long distance phone.
Old man, he’s a mountain.
Old man, he’s an island.
Old man, he’s awaking – says,
“ I’m going to call, call all my children home.”

Hope everybody’s dancing to their own drum this fine morning –
the beat of distant Africa or a Polish factory town.
Old man, he’s calling for his supper.
He’s calling for his whisky.
Calling for his sons and daughters, yeah –
calling, calling all his children round.

Sharp ears are tuned in to the drones and chanters warming.
Mist blowing round some headland, somewhere in your memory.
Everyone is from somewhere –
even if you’ve never been there.
So take a minute to remember the part of you
that might be the old man calling me.

How many wars you fighting out there, this winter’s morning?
Maybe it’s always time for another Christmas song.
Old man he’s asleep now.
Got appointments to keep now.
Dreaming of his sons and daughters and proving ,
proving that the blood is strong.

The Tea Party Theme Song!

Posted 27/07/2011 by lacithedog in Tea parties, Tea Party, teabaggers

Holy Astroturf, Batman!

This photo has been reblogged from Liberals Are Cool and Look At This Fucking Teabagger

If we listen to the USMSM (which includes US Public broadcasting), the “Tea Party movement” is truly a viable, grassroots movement rather than astroturfed horseshit.

2,000 people were expected at a Tea Party rally in South Carolina, just 30 showed up after Donald Trump cancelled his appearance with Gov. Nikki Haley (R), according to the Columbia State. The picture above from the rally is truly priceless for showing how much the “Tea Party” is a creation of US MSM.

The problem is that US MSM refuses to acknowledge the progressive viewpoint. How many people have heard of “the People’s Budget” proposed by the Congressional Progressive Caucus for Fiscal Year 2012? Instead of heading on a crash course for a US Default, the “the People’s Budget” eliminates the deficit in 10 years, puts Americans back to work and restores our economic competitiveness while protects Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and responsibly eliminates the deficit by targeting its main drivers: the Bush Tax Cuts, the wars overseas, and the causes and effects of the recent recession.

Why do we hear about the Tea Party initiatives, but not the “the People’s Budget”? Might it have something to do with US MSM being controlled by a few large corporations?  They even control “Public Broadcasting (USPM=US Public Media)” through underwriting so that even that avenue may provide more in-depth coverage than Fox News,  USPM is nearly as biased as Fox when it comes down to coverage.

THE TEA PARTY ANARCHY AND THE DEATH OF AMERICA

I have always thought that Libertarianism was right wing anarchism from when I first encountered it as a teen.  This came from my research on Anarchy and Libertarianism. It’s funny, but makes some fairly serious points.

 

GREETINGS,
I {we} have been criticized on these grounds: Why are aliens interested in American politics? Again for your benefit human I will try to answer this criticism and again warn of the consequences of human, and in this case specifically American stupidity, and of the consequences of your actions. The so called liberal wing of American politics is accused of reckless spending and increasing the reach and power of government – this is a valid criticism sometimes! BUT you must understand it is based not only on the greed of government but also on the greed of the rich and powerful who would be more than happy to eliminate as much government as possible and take control of you, your economy and ultimately of your entire lives – and true they sometimes use government for this purpose – BUT as long as the power remains in the hands of government there is some control by the people of this power – When it moves completely to the so called private sector money {as a function of power} will completely be in control – YOUR SO CALLED CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS WILL BE COMPLETELY OWNED BY MONEY AND WILL NO LONGER EXIST FOR INDIVIDUALS.

To some extent this is already happening as the United States of America is already deeply in debt to The Peoples Republic of China {The Chinese Communists}. So you might say right wing Republicans {the so called Tea Party} are going to help when in fact an objective view will show they will cause just the opposite – IF THE REPUBLICAN TEA PARTY WINS IN THE COMING ELECTION THEY WILL CAUSE COMPLETE GRIDLOCK TO OCCUR – YOUR GOVERNMENT WILL BECOME POWERLESS AND THE CHINESE WHO YOU BOUGHT OFF IN VIETNAM WILL BECOME THE WORLDS PREMIER ECONOMY – AMERICANS YOU WILL BE WORKING FOR THE CHINESE COMMUNISTS WHO YOU WILL AGAIN HAVE TO BUY OFF AS A CONSEQUENCE OF THE ANARCHY PRODUCED BY THE TEA PARTY!

Remember Americans THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT is the largest employer, biggest
business and greatest source of money to MILLIONS OF AMERICANS and to dismantle or damage your government now, even if it is out of line, will lead to the greatest depression the so called ‘free-world’ has ever seen and THERE WILL NO LONGER BE A ‘FREE-WORLD’ – YOU WILL BE WORKING FOR THE CHINESE!!! Think about it before you vote!!! AND ASK YOURSELVES AMERICANS WHO IS FUNDING THIS TEA PARTY AND WHAT IS THEIR REAL AGENDA??? Is it ANARCHY, CHAOS, AND THE TRIUMPH OF SPECIAL AND VERY SINISTER INTERESTS?!?!
WISE UP HUMAN – IT IS NOT TOO LATE!!!

MAY OUR FORCE BE WITH YOU!,
-Alien Commander Omd I

Now, that’s what I call a tax protest

It seems that Romania has decided to tax its witches, something that has caused a furore in the Romanian Witch Comunity. Not so much because they have to pay taxes, but they don’t believe they are going to receive anything in the way of benefits from the state.

The Queen witch, Bratara Buzea, has cursed the minister responsible for this action.

In addition, driving instructors will also have to pay tax, but they aren’t as interesting.
