Oh, NOW You Get MAD

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a

You didn’t get mad when the president ignored the clear and timely warning that
terrorists were going to hijack planes and fly them into the WTCs.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
energy policy.

You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when the weapons inspectors, who said there were no WMDs, were

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

    We have been mad since Bush 42!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you ever heard of the term “the straw that broke the camels back”?! We have been getting incrementally “F”d over since Bush 42 and just keep taking it without lube. Obama threw an entire bail on the camels back and we are sick of it. How much further will it have to go until your head in the sand dumb ass gets upset. You can’t get mad now because it’s a black President WOW, grab a nut you spineless jellyfish (sorry redundant). Wake up jack asses! I love you guys and then you take such an ignorant stance on such a simple matter… which makes you simpletons.

    Listener in intrepidation. Non-fag love, E

    In passion it should have been “Bush 41″ but watch how the entire correct thought process will be lambasted because there is no other argument….(case and point of LIMITED rational)

  3. jreal

    so simple, so true,yet still going on.

  4. Cousins Vinyl

    Thousands of people show up for an anti-war,anti globalism, our other “left” leaning rally and they are barely covered by the media. If they are covered it is to only marginalize them. A few thousand “tea baggers” show up and they are the next great political force.

  5. Common Sense

    The government is not giving Americans the right to see a doctor. People that dont see a doctor now CHOOSE not to. There are plenty of free clinics around the country that cater to people that cant spend the money on a doctor visit. What the American government did was to force all people (except Christian Scientists and the Amish) to purchase health insurance from a non-government corporation and if you dont, they’ll use a government entity to extract a fine right out of your taxes. I no longer have the freedom to NOT have health coverage. Is this the America you really want? Government forcing you to purchase something from a corporation?

    Everything that was listed above is a government f up and NOW its ok for those same people to be in charge of your health? Everything they touch gets f up.

    Yes the Tea party is misguided, but at least they are doing something about it. Most people just sit on their asses and bitch.

    @Eric Hupka

    You seem to miss the whole point. W and congress screwed us for 8 years straight. No Tea Party, no protests, not a peep, not a ripple from the right wingers currently taking to the streets. Not one single upheaval from 2000 to 2008.

    Now, all of the sudden, they’re mad as hell. Right.

    Sorry, your straw that broke the camel’s back theory doesn’t hold water. It’s right versus left BS, plain and simple. It’s hypocrasy.

    I don’t see any Bush signs in any of these crowds. I don’t hear any Bush smearing. I don’t hear any speeches about how horrible Reublicans did when they ran congress and ran up huge defecits.

    I’ve got news for all you Tea Partiers. Republicans Fed you from 2000 to 2008 and they put it on your credit card. Guess what, they’re going to f you again, and it’s going right onto your credit card, AGAIN. Republicans don’t give a shit about abortion, the size of government, or fiscal responsibility. Oh, but don’t worry Tea Partiers, they’re perfectly happy taking your money and support. Enjoy your ass fg, part II.

  10. Plasmatic

    Sorry – the tea party had been around well before Obama. This isn’t a “Now that the other party is in power you are pissed”. This is a “You finally pissed enough people off to say something”. People don’t realize that the tea ‘party’ isn’t a party at all. Political parties are there to get votes, the tea party is there to advocate change. As soon as the ‘party’ officially endorses a candidate (Palin or Paul) watch how they get marginalized.

  11. disdiq

    I couldnt agree more with this. Our administration spent 8 years playing world police and doing virutally nothing with any domestic polices unless it was based on Christianity or faith based. Regardless, the tea party consists of mostly uninformed Americans that are drunk on the Fox News kool-aid.
    Bubba Army 4 Life bitches!

  12. Andy

    This letter is funny to me. The honest truth is that WE DID GET MAD at a lot of those things the “unknown” author listed. Listen, most everyone did not like the stuff that has been going on for a long time, and there has been things that every president has done that some people disagree with. The thing that gets me is, people voted for the current president because he promised “hope and change”. The bottom line is, he is KEEPING the majority of the SAME policies the Bush Jr. started or upheld. Does that mean I am a racist, because that it what I am called everyday. No I am NOT. Does it mean that I am tired of corrupt politicians keeping us going in the same direction no matter what they say. YES. We WERE mad, we ARE mad, we will CONTINUE to be mad until the corruption stops. The fact that Obama keeps the same policies going just prove that both parties are the same, and both are controlled by the same people. The presidency is just a position for a puppet.

  13. StonedCrab

    Oh crap! I thought those were my nuts!!!

  14. W.Hater

    @ Checkraise

    just more hate blinders… you’ll see the Tea Party is the best of BOTH parties not Conservatives and they are only getting stronger!

  15. Chris

    Publishing half truths and misinformation is what should enrage AMericans. I am not picking a side and correcting ALL the wrong information. We pick sides and defend our egos with our rhetoric based on which side of the fence we happen to fall. We hear this crap from both sides, heath care is a GREAT thing, health care is a TERRIBLE thing.

    The truth of the matter is both sides use misdirection to push their agendas. Abortion, Health Care, Gun Control and the biggest farce of them all, GLOBAL WARMING.

    They set you up with all these small trigger issues to take your eye off the true agenda, GLOBALISM. What do I mean, research not hearsay is the key to the truth and what would really anger most Americans. Time always tell the truth and history ALWAYS repeats itself.

    Health care is what it is now, if the powers to be were really concerned about the electorate they would have simply provided us the SAME health care they are afforded as the ruling class. Plain and simple, give us what you have, not what you think we deserve. No one DESERVES anything, you EARN what you deserve.

    The media picks it’s darlings and it’s villains, then gives you their view of the news as they see it.

    The real question you should ask is “Who is giving the marching orders” The DNC leads the Dem agenda and the RNC leads the Rep agenda, we have good vrs evil. Pick a side you agree with and you are on the good side. But there is a group that controls both to lead the masses. Who is TRULY in control to weaken the greatest Super Power on the planet, and why? Do you really believe it is incompetence on the part of our elected officials, that would mean “WE” the voters are the incompetent ones.

    We are AMERICA and we are being divided to be conquered. If a nut at VA Tech gets a gun and shoots 30+ people, we need gun control. If more people were packing that would have ended sooner or might not have occurred. Evil is in the heart of man, not in the barrel of the gun. The instrument of this evil was a hand gun. Timothy McVey used fertilizer, the 911 guys used Airplanes, Jim Jones used Kool Aid. Should we band Cow poop, Kool Aid, Airplanes too.

    Pick a side, it will always be be the right one. Align yourselves with others with the same views and vehemently oppose those that disagree. While all this is occurring the country is being manipulated from within.

    Just give it some serious thought, why is all of this happening to the greatest nation on earth. A Nation that has always risen to the occasion to lead the world and provide stability throughout

  16. SloStrokes

    Ya know, I am personally as conservative as most folks.. I am very careful with my money and my allegiance. I want my Country do to the same. To think that “W” did everything right is BS. But, I remember being very glad he was in charge on 9-11. So were many of my liberal freinds. And very sad and disappointed in him as he allowed raised spending.. that is not what conservatives do. He lied to me too. I am a Vietnam veteran who believes vehemently that we fight wars to WIN, then get the hell out. With brute force, if we need it to WIN… then we get the hell out. The politicians screwed up that war and they are doing it again to our brave men and women.. Time to fix this.

    But, I will also tell you that the current administration is an abomination in my eyes. There are people out here hungry, losing their homes and livelyhood and all we have done as a nation for 17 months is spend money and vote everyone free health care. The COST of this is not sustainable folks! Forget the ideology, Mr. Obama cant raise taxes high enough to make a real difference at the rate he is spending. We are surrending 100% of 1/7th of the American economy to the US Government to cover 15% of Americans with basic health care!. Does anyone do macro-math anymore?

    Thinking back to another time of depression and great human need, FDR CREATED JOBS to help head off the impact to Americans. He was brilliant and not a single congressman could gainsay him.. he was a Leader. We need a clean sweep of the idiots in COngress today and start to change the way outr country is wom, WITHOUT losing the good that is America!

    VOTE THEM ALL OUT! Dems, Repubs, all incumbents. Show them that we, the American people are sending a message using our Constituional right to vote! Its time for that change we keep hearing about.

    Remember in November… vote for Real Change! Incumbents out!

  17. Patriot

    Well this is getting better and better. The Tea Partiers are nothing new. Theyre Patriots that love this country and have had enough. Enough of this government growing out of control, enough of being run over by the big machine in DC. The Government was designed to work FOR the people. Our founding fathers wrote that the power that this government possesses is too much for a small group of individuals and must be distributed among the people. Where did that go?? The right to bear arms was originally intended for the citizens to protect themselves. Even if it is to protect themselves against big government! Im sorry that it took so long for us to speak up and take some action. At least we are taking some action–1.7 million people in DC on 9/12/09!! and its not about republicans or democrats, its about right and wrong. It just happens to be during Obama’s administration. Well, the fact that we’re now headed down a road towards socialism doesnt help either, but thats another argument all together. Basically, I listen to the show everyday, I like you guys alot,your show reminds me of Howards show when I lived in NY.I listen everyday. I’m not gonna stop listening, I’ll just agree to disagree with you guys on this and continue to fight for what I believe in!!

  18. Emanon


    If you “DID GET MAD” then why did it take so long for all the Tea Party protests to start in the past few months? If you were mad at Bush’s behavior why didn’t you protest him during his time in office? Obama has stated he would get us out of Iraq and he’s working on that. Obama promised to reform the healthcare system and he’s done a lot to fulfill that despite Republican stonewalling. (The USA’s healthcare system currently ranks #37 according to the WHO). Why are so many people complaining now when Obama is doing what he promised, when those same people claim they’ve been mad but kept silent while Bush was in office?

  19. sam y

    both sides of the political landscape are fed the point is we need change and neither party offers that. I dont want my tax dollars going to a bunch of shit heads that lay around f and have babies well I’m at work thats horse shit. So what ever movement that brings change to our current course we are heading down I am for starting with term limits for both house and senate get some of the stale old asses out of there

  20. Geezee

    OK Bush was a jackass and the alternatives were worse (are you happy now you holier than now big government sympathizers) We “are complaining” yes because Obama IS doing exactly as he promised and trashing this country financially, idealistically and in reputation here and abroad! He is not getting us out of Iraq on any schedule sooner than Bush had proposed (once again see 1st sentence). The socialist healthcare reform has not worked worth a $!*^@ anywhere it has been implemented. We are in the process of destroying the best health care system in the world (you better take a good look at the criteria for the WHO #37 ranking…. the U.S. would be #1 if we just threw more money at it per the WHO, the U.S. is ranked #1 in responsiveness if I’m having a heart attack I would much rather have quick response than something shiny dangling in my face!). Obama is the first politician that I do not want to live up to his promises and all the others haven’t. If you love this country (I am an Army vet. Desert Storm vet.) how can you even find angst toward the Tea Party movement? I am indifferent, but less government, less taxes, pro gun, pro choice (with limits), less government intrusion… what exactly are you against?! Sounds pretty DAMN GOOD to me!

  21. Scoob

    I’m sorry. It’s probably none of my business. I’m from Canada, but I was just wondering… What’s the problem with universal health care again?!?

  22. Andy

    @ Emanon

    First of all pal….”the tea party protests start in the last few months?” LOL! You OBVIOUSLY pay NO attention to whats going on in this country. I remember tax rallies going on for years, and yes, maybe they have ramped up lately, although they really started going strong last year, no the last few months as you say.
    Second of all…how the hell do YOU know who I protested and who I didn’t? Please explain that. Also if you would have read my post and actually thought about what I wrote instead of saying that I am Bush supporter, you would understand that I do not have alliegiance to EITHER party. Why? Because THEY ARE BOTH THE SAME! Since you can’t pay attention to what I read, and you are to busy telling me what I did and didn’t do, why don’t you tell me more about the fact that Obama’s plan to get the troops out of Iraq was actually planned out by Bush Jr. BEFORE he left office. It was said to be done by the end of 2011, and everyone says Oh look what Obama is doing in Iraq….wasn’t even his plan. Now of course this MUST mean I love Bush according to you, but whatever. Also, how is taking the troops out of Iraq and moving them to Afghanastan stopping anything? Didn’t Obama also run and say that he was for ending the fake war that Bush Jr. started? (which is impossible to win) So please learn your facts, some of us do not want bigger govt. and do not want to suck off the tit of it. Others, like you, I’m sure do.

    Have a good day!

  23. Justen

    Bubba, you are an idiot.

    this is possiblely the stupidest crap nonsense I’ve ever seen posted on the internet, anywhere.

    Go on, keep beliveing all that nonsense.

    Oh, and btw, Sink is a tool, I was listening to her interview with you, you had to push her to say what you wanted her to say, and then, when she did say stuff, it was all the same old regurgitated DNC talking points.

  24. Political Punch

    What a load of shit.

    Last time I checked Clinton new about OBL, was offered him by the Sudanese, and he did nothing. NOTHING.

    Sink is gonna get spanked.

    You Obama voters will regret the day you voted for him. That’s not conspiratorial aside. That’s me telling you that telling the truth about HUSSEIN and making him look like an ass are one in the same.

    How does that happen, how do you vote for a guy with not just the name Hussein but a history in that belief system with at the very least a Dad that was “non-practicing”?

    Friggin clowns.

  25. Jeff

    @ Eric Hupka If the first “Bush was 41″ and the second “Bush was 42″ Where does that leave Clinton? Just shows he has no idea!!!

  26. Rattlesnake

    you are right, we didnt get mad, we didnt scream, we didnt hollar, but now we have a president and a congress that is HELL BENT on controlling our lives and spreading our wealth that we worked hard for to all his sit around, not doing a damn thing, wont work friends. You are damn right I am mad. I am not a Tea Partier, I’m an individual that has watched a congress and a president destroy all that I have worked for, watched him blow smoke up my ass with his promises of change, watched him pass bills that my children have to pay for, watched jobs and companies fold and congress gives themselves raises, watched him not honor our troops while bowing to the chinese and kiss the iranian leaders ass. Oh I’m mad and so are alot of other people. We are tired of a government for the people and by the people trying to take over every facet of our lives and then you have some at top that are wanna be hitlers and wanna be kings, well the mad ones will show them what it is to be on unemployment come midterms. And to those who believe that Obama cut costs of health care, you better read the latest and greatest out of the budget office, they are going to have to raise taxes, haha

  27. Bentley

    On Charley Crist – you are aligning yourself with a PROFESSIONAL POLITICAN that will tell you, to your face, what you want to hear and do just the opposite. Rubio is no better – an endorsement from Cheney – I would rather be endorsed by the devil – at least I know what team the devil plays for……

    ‘The 27.5 Trillion Dollar Man’
    The Key Question Looms: Will The Illuminati Banksters Get the Money First
    Or Will The American People Get It, As Wanta Is Legal Guardian And
    Trustee On Behalf Of The People Of The United States

    According to a 2003 federal court ruling by a courageous judge from Virginia, Wanta has been authorized as legal guardian of the vast sum of money made from profits at the end of the Cold War. In one of the most important stories of our time, Wanta holds the ‘finacial key’ to the vast criiminal Illuminati banking network and he says with the help of the American people their system can be destroyed.

    The only thing standing in the way of life and death for Ambassador Leo Wanta is he “knows where the money is hidden” and the Illuminati banksters don’t.

    A former U.S. Treasury official appointed trustee to a large sum of money by President Ronald Reagan, Wanta holds the financial “golden key” to 27.5trillion dollars, money he says now held in public trust for the American people.

    To back up Wanta’s trustee status as protector of trillions, a federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia, in 2003, ruled in his favor, saying Wanta’s trustee status is legally binding and the money is rightfully the property of the American people.

    The federal court case, however, has left federal prosecutors in a perplexed state of mind, as they have not yet officially appealed the ruling, perhaps thinking it is better to let “sleeping dogs sleep” until they get their ‘cooked ducks or judges in the right government pond.”

    But the real problem, as it stands today and why the money remains in limbo, is simply if Wanta returns the money to the U.S. Treasury, it will be immediately hi-jacked from the people and put into private Iluminati bank accounts since under the present Federal Reserve and the national banking system, there are no laws protecting the American people’s money.

    “Dutch (President Reagan} always intended the money be returned to the American people to be used for roads, schools and health care,” said Wanta last Thursday on Greg Szymanski’s radio show, the Investigative Journal, where the former Ambassador spoke for two hours while still being held under house arrest in his Switzerland home.

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law will increase the nation’s health care tab instead of bringing costs down, government economic forecasters concluded Thursday in a sobering assessment of the sweeping legislation.

    A report by economic experts at the Health and Human Services Department said the health care remake will achieve Obama’s aim of expanding health insurance — adding 34 million Americans to the coverage rolls.

    But the analysis also found that the law falls short of the president’s twin goal of controlling runaway costs, raising projected spending by about 1 percent over 10 years. That increase could get bigger, however, since the report also warned that Medicare cuts in the law may be unrealistic and unsustainable, forcing lawmakers to roll them back.

    The mixed verdict for Obama’s signature issue is the first comprehensive look by neutral experts.

    In particular, the warnings about Medicare could become a major political liability for Democratic lawmakers in the midterm elections.

  32. Leo

    Bubba – Why are we mad? Because that idiot kook in the White House now wants to add 15 million ILLEGAL voters for November by making them legal. Why is he so interested in the TOUGH Arizona laws:

    Obama said he’s instructed his administration to examine the Arizona bill to see if it’s legal, and said the federal government must enact immigration reform at the national level _ or leave the door open to “irresponsibility by others.”

    BULLSHIZ – he needs the illegals to vote the way he wants or the Dumo-tards are OUT!!!

    21 Goals of the Illuminati and The Committee of 300

    1. To establish a One World Government/New World Order with a unified church and monetary system under their direction. The One World Government began to set up its church in the 1920:s and 30:s, for they realized the need for a religious belief inherent in mankind must have an outlet and, therefore, set up a “church” body to channel that belief in the direction they desired.

    2. To bring about the utter destruction of all national identity and national pride, which was a primary consideration if the concept of a One World Government was to work.

    3. To engineer and bring about the destruction of religion, and more especially, the Christian Religion, with the one exception, their own creation, as mentioned above.

    4. To establish the ability to control of each and every person through means of mind control and what Zbignew Brzezinski called techonotronics, which would create human-like robots and a system of terror which would make Felix Dzerzinhski’s Red Terror look like children at play.

    5. To bring about the end to all industrialization and the production of nuclear generated electric power in what they call “the post-industrial zero-growth society”. Excepted are the computer- and service industries. US industries that remain will be exported to countries such as Mexico where abundant slave labor is available. As we saw in 1993, this has become a fact through the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA. Unemployables in the US, in the wake of industrial destruction, will either become opium-heroin and/or cocaine addicts, or become statistics in the elimination of the “excess population” process we know of today as Global 2000.

    6. To encourage, and eventually legalize the use of drugs and make pornography an “art-form”, which will be widely accepted and, eventually, become quite commonplace.

    7. To bring about depopulation of large cities according to the trial run carried out by the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia. It is interesting to note that Pol Pot’s genocidal plans were drawn up in the US by one of the Club of Rome’s research foundations, and overseen by Thomas Enders, a high-ranking State Department official. It is also interesting that the committee is currently seeking to reinstate the Pol Pot butchers in Cambodia.

    8. To suppress all scientific development except for those deemed beneficial by the Illuminati. Especially targeted is nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Particularly hated are the fusion experiments currently being scorned and ridiculed by the Illuminati and its jackals of the press. Development of the fusion torch would blow the Illuminati’s conception of “limited natural resources” right out of the window. A fusion torch, properly used, could create unlimited and as yet untapped natural resources, even from the most ordinary substances. Fusion torch uses are legion, and would benefit mankind in a manner which, as yet, is not even remotely comprehended by the public.

    9. To cause. by means of limited wars in the advanced countries, by means of starvation and diseases in the Third World countries, the death of three billion people by the year 2050, people they call “useless eaters”. The Committee of 300 (Illuminati) commissioned Cyrus Vance to write a paper on this subject of how to bring about such genocide. The paper was produced under the title “Global 2000 Report” and was accepted and approved for action by former President James Earl Carter, and Edwin Muskie, then Secretary of States, for and on behalf of the US Government. Under the terms of the Global 2000 Report, the population of the US is to be reduced by 100 million by the year of 2050.

    10. To weaken the moral fiber of the nation and to demoralize workers in the labor class by creating mass unemployment. As jobs dwindle due to the post industrial zero growth policies introduced by the Club of Rome, the report envisages demoralized and discouraged workers resorting to alcohol and drugs. The youth of the land will be encouraged by means of rock music and drugs to rebel against the status quo, thus undermining and eventually destroying the family unit. In this regard, the Committee commissioned Tavistock Institute to prepare a blueprint as to how this could be achieved. Tavistock directed Stanford Research to undertake the work under the direction of Professor Willis Harmon. This work later became known as the “Aquarian Conspiracy”.

    11. To keep people everywhere from deciding their own destinies by means of one created crisis after another and then “managing” such crises. This will confuse and demoralize the population to the extent where faced with too many choices, apathy on a massive scale will result. In the case of the US, an agency for Crisis Management is already in place. It is called the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), whose existence I first enclosed in 1980.

    12. To introduce new cults and continue to boost those already functioning which include rock music gangsters such as the Rolling Stones (a gangster group much favored by European Black Nobility), and all of the Tavistock-created rock groups which began with the Beatles.

    13. To continue to build up the cult of Christian Fundamentalism begun by the British East India Company’s servant Darby, which will be misused to strengthen the Zionist State of Israel by identifying with the Jews through the myth of “God’s chosen people”, and by donating very substantial amounts of money to what they mistakenly believe is a religious cause in the furtherance of Christianity.

    14. To press for the spread of religious cults such as the Moslem Brotherhood, Moslem Fundamentalism, the Sikhs, and to carry out mind control experiments of the Jim Jones and “Son of Sam” type. It is worth noting that the late Khomeini was a creation of British Military Intelligence Div. 6, MI6. This detailed work spelled out the step-by-step process which the US Government implemented to put Khomeini in power.

    15. To export “religious liberation” ideas around the world so as to undermine all existing religions, but more especially the Christian religion. This began with the “Jesuit Liberation Theology”, that brought an end to the Somoza Family rule in Nicaragua, and which today is destroying El Salvador, now 25 years into a “civil war”. Costa Rica and Honduras are also embroiled in revolutionary activities, instigated by the Jesuits. One very active entity engaged in the so-called liberation theology, is the Communist-oriented Mary Knoll Mission. This accounts for the extensive media attention to the murder of four of Mary Knoll’s so-called nuns in El Salvador a few years ago. The four nuns were Communist subversive agents and their activities were widely documented by the Government of El Salvador. The US press and the new media refused to give any space or coverage to the mass of documentation possessed by the Salvadorian Government, which proved what the Mary Knoll Mission nuns were doing in the country. Mary Knoll is in service in many countries, and placed a leading role in bringing Communism to Rhodesia, Moçambique, Angola and South Africa.

    16. To cause a total collapse of the world’s economies and engender total political chaos.

    17. To take control of all foreign and domestic policies of the US.

    18. To give the fullest support to supranational institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Bank of International Settlements, the World Court and, as far as possible, make local institutions less effective, by gradually phasing them out or bringing them under the mantle of the UN.

    19. To penetrate and subvert all governments, and work from within them to destroy the sovereign integrity of the nations represented by them.

    20. To organize a world-wide terrorist apparatus and to negotiate with terrorists whenever terrorist activities take place. It will be recalled that it was Bettino Craxi, who persuaded the Italian and US Governments to negotiate with the Red Brigades kidnapers of Prime Minister Moro and General Dozier. As an aside, Dozier was placed under strict orders not to talk what happened to him. Should he ever break that silence, he will no doubt be made “a horrible example of”, in the manner in which Henry Kissinger dealt with Aldo Moro, Ali Bhutto and General Zia ul Haq.

    21. To take control of education in America with the intent and purpose of utterly and completely destroying it. By 1993, the full force effect of this policy is becoming apparent, and will be even more destructive as primary and secondary schools begin to teach “Outcome Based Education” (OBE).

    I beleive that the protest to the Bush policies was that the Republicans were VOTED OUT OF OFFICE! How else do you explain how Obama won so handily? You yourself Bubba voted for Obama why? Because you hated Bush? Well so did alot of people. They werent voting on their conservative views, thats for sure! Bush turned out to not be a true fiscal conservative, and Obamas “change” is turning out to be more of the same, and worse politics. I think people are just plain tired of either side of the isle, I know I am.

    Anybody who calls this bill a “healthcare takeover” or “socialized medicine” is effing stupid. I come from a country with universal healthcare and even get the benefits as I live right here in the great USA! You republican/tea party haters, calling the BTLS show ignorant, is just like the pot calling the kettle black!! Before you start spewing off on what everybody else should believe in, maybe you ought to figure out what you believe in and not let the GOP (or any political party for that matter) decide for you.

    Tea baggers are only mad now because it is a black president who is enacting legislation that does not allow them to get richer. They are racist pure and simple. They claim to be Christians, but funny nothing they are for is even remotely related to the teachings of Jesus Christ, Remember “love your neighbor as yourself”…Should that love not include allowing all Americans to have health care. But these good Christians ignore that ‘Greatest Commandment.” I guess it is not in the tea party version of the bible… The hypocrisy of these morons is sickening…. The sad part is that most of these people are not rich but yet they allow themselves to be exploited by the Republican Party who uses them like puppets and gets their vote by using the not so subtle campaign message of “vote with us or you are voting with the Niggers, Homos and Feminists.” All the while they being screwed out of their hard earned money by the very people they helped to elect. ….remember $4 a gallon gas while Bush’s Oil company buddies made record profits. But of course like good puppets they are now mad because a president has tried to help them…But not just a president but a Black one…. Oh my god… it is the end of America as we know it… A black man in the presidency….They should be mad….. C’mon people… wake up and quit allowing yourself to be manipulated by the Republican Party which does not give a crap about you. If you are not rich…and most of these people are not…. The Republican Party has nothing for you….and even worse, they laugh at you as they pull your puppet strings that they have attached to your racist attitudes and fears of homosexuals and communists. The Republican Party does not care about defending America or the American family. They care about making money and use these McCarthyistic messages to get your vote so that they can stay in power and screw not just the blacks, the homos and the feminists but YOU TOO…. Wake up…. It is high time that we got rid of the special interests running our country and the American people take back power and do what is right for the working men and woman of this country of all colors instead of being manipulated by the Republicans disgusting tactics and assisting them while they rob the United States Treasury and the American people on behalf of themselves and the corporations that their rich buddies run. Wake up and get your head out of your butt…but that is hard when a big republican sex organ is still located there.

    @ Jeff

    Thank You for making my point about the comment I wrote right after the Bush 42 thing but I guess your attention span did not carry you that far. No thoughts just criticism… Thank You again.

    You can discuss politics in an amicable manner or you can argue. Either way they are going to do whatever they want and call it democracy.
