2. And when 10 TPr's show up somewhere it's

covered by every media outlet. When 10,000 show up in WI it's a footnote because there was some sideboob that day.

4. Exactly

The media is owned by the right, they put out the right wing propaganda and ignore "real" issues. Every state run by republicans have been doing the best they can to take away the rights of women along with all the other right wing agenda issues. It has to stop and the only way it can change is to vote the people who are trying to turn this country back 100 years! Getting the tea party clowns out of office is the change that needs to be made, and putting in people who will do what is right for the people of this country, all the people!

16. women are to be considered equal citizens and complete human beings enjoying all the rights thereof.

the fourth amendment to the constitution protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure by the Government.
Amendment IV
(Privacy of the Person and Possessions)
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.



fanaticism in writing laws tramples on individuals' rights to privacy, most especially in cases of medical decisions which should only be made by the patient in consultation with his/her doctor.

The Repulbican party's constituency is anybody who can provide enough money to be heard by the Replican Party Leadership or individual con-man (i.e. Republican lobbyist/politician).

18. "Reduce intrusiveness of Government"... "No Gov't Run Healthcare" - EXCEPT

 

When The American Taliban want to DECIDE FOR WOMEN what's best for them, mandating unnecessary trans-vaginal ultrasounds before getting an abortion - which is flatly: legalized RAPE.

When these assholes are advocating these types of policies which deny women needed health care and force women to pay for procedures they DON'T NEED - and they ARE passing such legislation in some state in the U.S. almost daily, then I have real trouble taking their ignorant and sophomoric whining seriously.

Seriously.

in 2009 to 2010 of that horrible well paid for movement to benefit the 1%. The 1% used the tea brats to the fullest and look now, 99% are going down in the economy and the 1% making record profits. GOPers still have the tea brats trained to do and vote against their own interest.

Seems like the Women of America have to stand tall and strong and vote these motherf**kers out or the next step will reverse the voting amendment that allows Women to vote.

31. The Koch Bros didn't back the Tea Party, they created it:

Study Confirms Tea Party Was Created by Big Tobacco and Billionaire Koch Brothers

A new academic study confirms that front groups with longstanding ties to the tobacco industry and the billionaire Koch brothers planned the formation of the Tea Party movement more than a decade before it exploded onto the U.S. political scene.

Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended cigarettes are currently deploying their tobacco-inspired playbook internationally to evade accountability for the fossil fuel industry's role in driving climate disruption.

The study, funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institute of Health, traces the roots of the Tea Party's anti-tax movement back to the early 1980s when tobacco companies began to invest in third party groups to fight excise taxes on cigarettes, as well as health studies finding a link between cancer and secondhand cigarette smoke.

Published in the peer-reviewed academic journal, Tobacco Control, the study titled, 'To quarterback behind the scenes, third party efforts': the tobacco industry and the Tea Party, is not just an historical account of activities in a bygone era. As senior author, Stanton Glantz, a University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) professor of medicine, writes:

33. Now I am really confused....

 

We have the GOP, the Tea Party and the up and comer Freedom Party by Sarah Palin who was sponsored by the Tea Party and the GOP while she was a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, The party also advocates positions similar to those of the Constitution Party and Libertarian Party, supporting gun rights, privatization, home schooling, and limited government.

Have I missed anything?

43. That's the American Taliban's new "meme"...

 

...they call anyone who refuses to be oppressed by them "terrorists" - notice the corprats are now using the same epithet against anyone protesting their poison and destruction. Environmental protesters are "terrorists". Folks protesting the KeystoneXL pipeline are labelled "terrorists"

The American Taliban and their corprat friends should really stop projecting.
