GOP Congressman, Horse's Petute, Says it's ABOUT TIME FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO SHUT DOWN.


Listen to Ezra Klein (a Sane Person) tell Horse's Petute that this is NOT A GOOD IDEA. In fact it is a SCARY IDEA...

Are You Tired Of Calling The Wacko Teapublicans Wacko?

SO AM I, because we need to do so much more than to call them names, it's getting too scary! For over four years, perhaps a lot longer because they went by a different name pre-Obama, these crazy people have filled our airwaves, if not our senses with their psychopathic messages. That’s right, I said PSYCHOPATHIC, a quick Google search gives rise to the Teapublican meaning of this word:  

Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously characterized by shallow emotions (including reduced fear, a lack of empathy, and stress tolerance), cold-heartedness, egocentricity, superficial charm, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity, criminality, antisocial behavior, a lack of remorse, and a parasitic (bloodsucking) lifestyle.

Look back on any video featuring Tea Party Pitchpersons and Talkingheads, floating around the Internet and it will bear witness to the above factual statement pertaining to those who identify with this so-called movement.

Let’s sum up some of the bills, laws and wacked theories the GOP Tea Party leaders have thrown around, (unfortunately with some success) like kids tossing not-so-hot baseball cards in some silly sidewalk game. (Note: this is but a small example of the horrendous laws these NUTS would force Sane Americans to live under)

Anti-Sharia Laws
According to Mother Jones , five states have banned “Sharia law” and another 11 are “working on it.” Aside from the fact that, for the non-crazy among us, there is no discrete legal code known as Sharia law, the other problems with these measures are the establishment and free exercise clauses of the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution.

Abortion Bills Conflicting with Roe

Less humorous are a spate of anti-abortion bills that fly in the face of the Supreme Court's longstanding view that the Constitution grants a “right to privacy” pertaining to such matters as abortion. These are not designed merely to pander to the base, but to restrict abortions to a degree that they become effectively impossible to obtain.

Nullification Laws

We've seen truthers, birthers, deathers and then there are the tenthers, who believe that states can simply opt-out of any federal law that isn't explicitly included in the Constitution. They've used it to pass – or propose – laws opting out of everything from hate crimes legislation to health-care reform. Yes, they're partying like it's 1861!

States Regulating Immigration

Again, the courts have long held, under the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, that when a state law conflicts with a federal law, the former is, in the words of Justice John Paul Stevens writing for the majority in a 2008 case, “without effect.” The federal government has argued, and won, a whole slew of cases based on federal immigration laws trumping competing legislation passed by the states.

Don't Say This or That Laws

Guess what? Nowhere in the First Amendment does it say, you have the right to free speech, “except for those living in the deep South.”

Yet Florida's legislature has passed a law barring physicians from asking patients if there is a firearm present in their home. An earlier version of the bill, subtly called “Don't Ask,” would have made it a felony, but that was apparently too crazy even for Florida.

Not to be outdone, the Tennessee Senate passed a law this week that “would forbid public school teachers and students in grades kindergarten through eight from discussing the fact that some people are gay.” The “Don't Say 'Gay'” law prompted George Takei, of Star Trek fame, to offer his own name to be used as a proxy.

Financial 'Martial Law'

Also in the less funny category is Michigan governor Rick Snyder's “financial martial law” legislation, which allows him to appoint “emergency financial managers” authorized to take over local municipalities. It empowers them, among other things, to “reject, modify, or terminate one or more terms and conditions of an existing collective bargaining agreement.” Typical war on unions stuff!


Let us not forget about the Treaty modeled after Americans with Disabilities Act that failed to pass because of Tea Party Legislators— who treat collaboration with other governments and the United Nations as a surrender of US sovereignty — so they killed it.


Oh yes The Conspiracy Theorists, who make up a good portion of the Tea Party, have concocted a vast number of conspiracies, here is a partial list:

The Tea Party has attracted many conspiracy theorists to its cause. Anyone who spends time on an active Tea Party forum will see a number of conspiracy-related threads pop up. More common conspiracies include:

The belief that Obama is deliberately trying to destroy America, or trying to create a socialist/communist totalitarian government.

The belief that Obama's presidency is part of a plot to institute the New World Order - often referring to George Soros or the UN.

And, of course, Birtherism

An eagle eyed viewer may also find:

Tea Party movement and Teabaggers in general, ARE NOT A JOKE but I wish they were, they would be less dangerous as a JOKE! thinkingblue

"But they are nothing new, nothing new at all. They are mostly a bunch of cranky white men with money who are trying desperately to hang on to their privileges. Same as it ever was. They are what we have called "Republicans" for at least the last 30 years."

Jon Stewart once commented - in semi-praise of Ron Paul - that most were just "Moral Majority in three-corner hats."

The teabaggers claim to be the second American Revolution, and they have the flag to prove it!
