Teabagger fun on the way home
I live in a densely RED county in NJ. It's a constant battle with the Pukes, rich and poor, but mostly rich, who live here. One of my favorite stops on the way home is a gas station/convenience store owned by expatriated Palestinians. The whole family runs it, wonderful people. I've been going there for almost 8 years now for Monster coffee, Lipton tea, lottery, and tobacco for my roomie. Owner is there tonight. Guy at the counter yelling about "turning Iran to glass" not realising the owner is a Palestinian and just not knowing this conflict isn't about Iran. Then the ranting over taxes and government start as he's waiting for his lottery tickets to be printed.

"Shrink the government, eliminate taxes, no Social Security, deport the illegals, blah blah blah". Owner says. "Who is going to defend you if we have no Army"?


As God is my witness he says "they are self taking care of them selves".

Owner says, how do you provide them with tanks and bombs and planes, the lottery?"

Silence.

Owner says "and when you retire, without Social Security, how will you survive?"


"Pension, I'm taken care of" he states proudly. Owner "Oh you work for the State?" 'Bagger, "what difference does it make", and out he goes.

Did not know Libya isn't Iran.......


And I stood silent, I did not need to join in. White, rich, and Red Country in NJ, loves Crispy Christie. But the cars with all of the anti-Obama bumper stickers aren't around so much anymore. I still can't figure that one out.

7. It's ALL THE TIME HERE but we didn't confirm he was a State worker
but he really didn't leave a lot of doubt.He could have been a plow truck driver for all we know....

9. Just venting apparently unsolicited to perfect strangers about politics in a store is disturbing
and evidence enough, IMO of his stupidity, bigotry, bias,and ignorance. Humility is an indication of true intelligence, and this rightwinger's must be in the middle range of double-digits at best. He is obviously a Faux Noise devotee and/or Flush dittohead, who doesn't have the ability to search for and process information on his own, and must be spoon-fed teabagger tripe in order to spark a synapse within his neanderthal-like brain.

13. Where I am in NJ, it's not like that, thankfully.
;)

Though we do have some, our town and county is hugely Democratic.

14. Down the road about an hour from here, night and day
They sat outside the Post office all last Summer trying to get people's attention that the president is not a citizen. I asked them if they were paid (the two morans) and they started to spit curses at me.


They are idiots.

15. We had one guy that would dress up all in red, white and blue carrying signs
about how Obama wasn't a citizen and other things, yelling at cars and people passing by, also at the post office. Now that it's getting warmer, he might come back again. Most people just ignore or laugh. That just gets him angrier. ;)
