1. That's an obviously fake photo
The sign on the right has no spelling errors.

4. I don't get it. Are you saying that all the smart, good looking
voters stayed home?

How do we reach and motivate them?

5. "GIVE US LIBERTY"?
you have no liberty now, Madam?

What are 'intoleable acts'? Are they not mentioned in polite company?

7. Let's break the word down, shall we.....
un - not, or, a global intergovernmental body
cons - plural for right-wing free marketeers
tit - come on, were all adults here, we know what that means
ion - a molecule or atom
al - the man who was robbed of the presidency in 2000


Is that clear enough?

:P

10. I am always wondering why these people feel a loss of liberty--have they been
prevented from attending the church of their choice, have they been denied a gun permit or a hunting license, have they had a knock at their door regarding a letter to the editor? Are they not allowed to enter a particular store, restaurant, or public building, are they not allowed to assemble or hold up signs? Have their children been denied access to public schools? I'm trying to pinpoint exactly where the RW bullshit has penetrated past their common sense and made them angry enough to protest a fictional loss of freedom by Obama/Democrats--and why they can't see the REAL loss of freedom that comes from losing one's job and running out of unemployment benefits, or getting sick and not having insurance and thus depleting savings or going bankrupt, or being shouted down from corporations and industries who have as much "personhood" as they do. Lots of reasons to be angry at both parties and the government, but they just don't seem to know where to aim their weapons.

11. I've been wondering that myself...
I've heard a lot of talk from average citizens and pundits on the right and rightist callers to C-Span's Washington Journal about how Obama (specifically, just that one guy) has somehow taken away some liberties and restricted their freedom. But HOW, exactly? They never specify HOW, in concrete ways, their "liberty" has been compromised. None of them can point to how Obama has taken their right to do anything away. It's especially odd that they lived through 8 years of Bush 2, who actually DID restrict freedoms (Patriot Act, Free Speech Zones, etc.) but only now feel a civil liberties deficit. I wish someone would explain this.

12. All we can do is
hope that when he repubs and teabaggers start talking about doing things that will REALLY mess up their lives, they will see which side of the bread it is buttered on - the Democratic side.
