I Love This! I"m going to carry printed copies and hand them out to Tea Party members
http://humidcity.com/?p=3054


Tea Party Members, Are You Serious? If So Sign The Pledge!


I do solemnly swear to uphold the principles of a socialism-free society and heretofore pledge my word that I shall strictly adhere to the following:

I will complain about the destruction of 1st Amendment Rights in this country, while I am duly being allowed to exercise my 1st Amendment Rights

I will complain about the destruction of my 2nd Amendment Rights in this country, while I am duly being allowed to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights by legally but brazenly brandishing unconcealed firearms in public.

I will foreswear the time-honored principles of fairness, decency, and respect by screaming unintelligible platitudes regarding tyranny, Nazi-ism, and socialism at public town halls. Also, I pledge to eliminate all government intervention in my life.

4. I like the comments where two supposed teabaggers "Nate" and "Mike" continue to prove that they are
looney.

5. Too many multi-syllabic words there

It needs simplification, and they should also promise to never accept cash or services from Social Security, Medicare, the police and fire departments.

7. That's a GOOD thing
If the teabaggers think you're on the level, they'll give it a cursory glance, skip over those fancy-schmancy multisyllabic words, and just sign it. Think they're gonna admit they don't understand something in front of someone they consider a fellow 'bagger?

9. Tea party members are just like any other zealots
Giving them any sort of attention (positive or negative) simply encourages them. They are far too convinced of their warped ideas to be convinced otherwise. If you just give them enough time and ignore them, their movement will die just like every other far right wing movement has. Movements fueled by anger alone tend to be short lived.
