QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunUS has *so* much non-productive overhead caused by lawersYou can't state the obvious, it is too polarizing. Trial lawyers and teacher's unions are the top financial supporter of Democrats. Of course you left out the money spent teaching kids about global warming who can't multiply five times five.But anyway it is pointless to talk about structural support of economic growth as long as Obama is President. He uses laws, regulations, and money, to buy votes and destroy the country. All money that isn't spent on voting groups such as unions and program recipients, is spent on green lightbulb factories that go out of business.There really is nothing positive that can be done in the face of a President who wants to destroy the United States. You people are as blind as bats who still don't understand the dynamic. You are still mind-numbed thinking this destructive idiot is some great leader. Are you that racist, that you have to paralyze your brain when considering a person with brown skin?

QuoteOriginally posted by: hayesI think the Tea Party Movement has polarised politics rather than aided partisanship, but at the end of the day they're a vocal, well organised minority group doing a very good job on speaking up for their members.Maybe they should just let CrashedMint march them on a train to Dachau, when he is not too busy returning stuff to Amazon.com for a refund after he is done using it.

For some better quality - Inside the Beltway reporting:Roll Call Congressional QuarterlyI'd be very careful about what you are reading in the press (both US and Europe) about the TP party.Let's see how they do in the next election cycle.I still say it is a tempest in a tea pot. At least for now.

Even Muammar Khadafy, 5,000 miles away, knows who this guy Obama is: He is a radical fulfilling the dream of his father to get even with the United States. So Khadafy sends Obama a letter "you will always be our son" and the average idiot in the US who voted for this Obama has no idea what Khadafy is talking about.

Early too.Why don't you write us a serious Op-Ed piece on the Tea Party and what it means to you. Something worthy of Mencken would be delightful.You can also tell the class what you did on your summer vacation.

"Laws are no longer made by a rational process of public discussion; they are made by a process of blackmail and intimidation, and they are executed in the same manner. The typical lawmaker of today is a man wholly devoid of principle - a mere counter in a grotesque and knavish game. If the right pressure could be applied to him, he would be cheerfully in favor of polygamy, astrology or cannibalism."- H. L. Mencken, The American Mercury, May 1930Just for the record, I am cheerfully in favor of polygamy, astrology *and* cannibalism myself.Polyandry too. No doubt about that.

QuoteOriginally posted by: farmerQuoteOriginally posted by: hayesI think the Tea Party Movement has polarised politicsObama is governing against the will of the people.I know he's governing against the will of a lot of people. I'm not sure if that means "all" the people or just "some" of them.I guess you'll find out for sure next year, but in the mean time I don't think Obama's going to lose too much sleep about upsetting the Tea Party, not unless they all figure out a way to vote twenty times each.

QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunpresidents are installed via lobbies, ...but some president install corrupt voting machinesthe will of the people is not a real factor in this democracy Does The Tea Party movement count as a lobbyist?You don't always need corrupt voting machines, sometimes a bunch of old people punching holes in the wrong place will be enough.

QuoteOriginally posted by: farmerQuoteOriginally posted by: hayesI think the Tea Party Movement has polarised politicsObama is governing against the will of the people. He passed his healthcare takeover against huge opposition in the polls.First, it was Congress, not Obama, that passed the healthcare bill so it must be Congress that's governing against the will of the people. Second, it's called representative democracy (not direct democracy) for a reason -- sometimes what's popular today is not the right choice for tomorrow.
