Tea Party Groups Call for Riots if Romney Loses

Posted by madjillmom on October 9, 2012

If such a thing were happening, the MSM/Obama Campaign would call for Romney to denounce the Tea Party. Go to these posts on twitchy.com and look who is threatening to riot. It is really stupid Obama supporters who are calling for riots. Will the Obama campaign denounce these calls for violence? Will the MSM clue into the fact that these threats are all around us?

If Obama loses and riots start, what will Obama do? He stands by as his supporters say ugly things about Romney and his family. Will he do something when the rocks and bottles start being thrown?

Tea Party Downgrade

Posted by madjillmom on August 9, 2011

The Democrat’s new mantra is that the Tea Party is responsible for the S & P downgrade.  The downgrade was issued because the rate of spending at all levels of government exceeds the rate of growth in the economy. If the Tea Party Caucus had gotten what they wanted, a downgrade would have been much less likely.  The Tea Party Caucus wanted more real cuts in spending, less of a credit extension, and no new taxes.

What would have happened if the President had gotten his first (of ever-changing) wishes – a clean debt ceiling vote?  That would have been a definite downgrade because there would have been no cuts (even the phantom ones that are a part of anything out of DC).  Then Obama wanted a big deal or the so-called balance approach.  There might have been a few more cuts, but Obama wanted  1.2 new taxes for every 1.6 in cuts.  Any taxes would rock the anemic recovery so there would  be a downgrade based on another recession.

Please remember, because there are not supposed to be earmarks in bills anymore, the traditional way to get important legislation through the House and Senate is not available anymore.  Another good thing that doesn’t run up expenses.  However, this makes it much harder to pass legislation.

US Downgraded

Posted by madjillmom on August 6, 2011

Last week wasn’t bad enough, so Standard and Poors downgraded America’s AAA rating.  After rumors bubbled up all day, they announcement came early evening, guaranteeing another horrible week in the market.  The compromise to raise the debt ceiling was too little and showed little hard evidence that the country understands and is willing to do what is needed to get our fiscal house in order.

I sure this will be spun as the fault of the Republicans and most especially the Tea Party members.  If the Tea Party Republicans had their way, the cuts would have been much greater, probably saving the US from the downgrading.  Remember, the Republicans only control the house.  The Dems control the Senate and the Presidency.  They wanted less cuts and tax increases or revenues (as they now like to call them).

Obama and Geitner promised no downgrade.  No that it has happened, the claim S & P calculations are incorrect.  Great response.  When will the Dem’s take the responsibility for massive spending and greater and greater debt on programs that do not work.

Everyone should get back to DC, including Obama (scheduled for a “joe six-bus” tour to counterbalance his trip to Martha’s Vineyard).  Appoint the members for the new super congressional committee, go straight to the Presidential Debt Commission report (totally ignored by the President), and start cutting for real right now.  Not next month, not next year, but now.

Quit Whining and Starve the Beast!

Tea Party Influence vs. Union Influence

Posted by madjillmom on March 31, 2011

Many Democrats are using talking points to try to convince us that the Republican party has undue influence by the angry mob of tea-partiers. God, I hope so.  The Dems look to harangue the Republicans for cutting spending in a draconian way while under the heel of the Tea Party movement.  At the same time, the press is questioning if the Tea Party movement has lost it’s steam.

If the question is who has too much influence with the political parties, I would love to see the Tea Party have undue influence on the Republican party.  Which undue influence is stronger and to what end is the influence?  The Tea Party wants less government and bigger cuts.  The Dems Union influence only wants more benefits for unions.  The unions (most particularly government employee unions) want everybody to fund their easy ride to high pensions way earlier than most who work for private industry.  They want government contracts at inflated prices for all unions.  They wanted Chrysler bondholders to get nothing while their union got huge chunks of the auto industry.

This argument is a winner for Republicans.

What IS a Tea Party According to Bill Clinton

Posted by madjillmom on September 20, 2010

The man who taught us to question the meaning of “is” now is giving us his insight into the Tea Party movement.  On the one hand, he says the tea party members are mad about the greedy wall street fat cats.  Then he says the tea party apparatus will result in more power in the hands of those fat cats.

Has Bill Clinton ever been to a Tea Party event?  Don’t think so.  Yet, he feels that he can feel their pain and that pain is too much capitalism, unfettered markets, and the need for more regulations.  Weird.  I though it was less government interference, smaller government, and lower taxes.

Thank goodness that Bill Clinton is around to let us know why we are so mad, leaning toward craziness and extremism.
