With all due respect, thanks anyways.  I am all for a conservative agenda but not one that captures data and then probably sell my phone number to someone else to call and pester me for money and donations on my dime.  You see in America you  have a choice in participating in simple things like texting, but it is becoming a little blurry on who interprets your choice in what you have to say and what is okay for you to believe in.  Apparently President Obama, the Department of Homeland Security, and our government is beginning to define lawful political dissent, and what is acceptable. rightwing1

Yesterday, Roger Hedgecock and the Liberty Papers posted an Office of Intelligence and Analysis report (file here) by the DHS that identifies ‘Right wing Conservatives’ as the major threat to our country’s security. 

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United States on April 7 under the headline, “Right wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” Just in time for the peaceful Tea Party Protests.

It, “essentially indicts anyone who is pro Second Amendment, pro-border control, anti-abortion..or most tellingly, not a fan of the current Administration write, JoshuaPundit at http://joshuapundit.blogspot.com/2009/04/obamas-dept-of-homeland-security.html

From the report “Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority or rejecting government authority entirely.  It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many Rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use.” 

Would that include: questioning Obama’s own citizenship, pro-capitalism vs anti-socialism, going to church, owning a gun and generally any disgruntled Americans who go to a tea party is now a right wing extremist?  Conservatives have every right to be pissed that Obama is painting conservatives as radicals.  I guess there will be no tea served at the parties tomorrow, only kool aid.

President Barack Obama has “distanced” himself from this report, according to the Washington Times.  What?  Like neither he or Homeland Security Janet Napolitano aren’t responsible for this report?  Ummm- where’s the transparency you promised?  We are seeing right through it!   Being a conservative is not being a terrorist.

I was doing research on earthquake predictions and was curious to what underground seismography might be available in Nevada from the Operation Dominick underground nuclear explosions, and if they were still active to show data to correspond to recent tremors in California.  Here was my little shake up on government authority for the day.

tea-for-two-poster

We’ve come along way from the squeaky clean image of Doris Day’s portrayal of Nanette Carter set in the Roaring 1920’s movie, Tea for Two.

The Tea Party protests of today far more mimic the sex comedy movie, Pillow Talk back in 1959.   It was one of the first movies that portrayed the loosening of morals in middle America.  Doris Day might blush over headlines like, Lindsey Lohan distraught over lesbian break up, but we can dispute morals another day.  The Tea Party protests are about disastrous politics, capitalism vs socialism, and taxes- pure and simple. 

Eric Odom, Chairman of the nationwide Tea Party rally movement apparently asked RNC Chairman Michael Steele not to be a Speaker at a Chicago rally because it might identify the Tea Parties as “Republican.”  HT- http://libertarianrepublican.blogspot.com/2009/04/msnbc-mid-identifies-libertarian.html

Give me a break.  Outside of Washington, Chicago politics is the capital of deceit and manipulation of power. If someone like Steele has something to say, put him on the agenda.  What, you going to have Blago? Ayers?  It was after all, Rick Santelli’s Chicago Board rant on TV that started the symbolic tea party ideas.  He growled loud “enough is enough’ and ‘no more’ uncontrolled big brother government.  “We’re thinking of having a Chicago tea party in July, all you capitalists that want to show up to Lake Michigan, I’m gonna start organizing.”  

The idea that the Tea Parties should remain non-partisan and rely on grass roots efforts is a bunch of hooey.    Grassroots movements may happen on the local level with volunteers in a community giving time and money to support the local party, but it leads to helping the national party in the long run.   There are Republican, Democrat and Liberal party members who are pissed.  All Americans who pays attention to politics and pay taxes should be pissed.  With the April deadline for federal tax returns looming, the only people who likely don’t give a rats ass about a Tea Party are the growing number of Americans who pay zero federal income tax, don’t file at all or don’t give a shit about where the future of America is heading. 

When I think of grass roots, I think of ACORN and I am twice as pissed to think that it was this grass roots group that played a significant contribution to the mortgage crisis- in the first place- by finding loans for people who could never pay them back.   Local community efforts can barely succeed at registering people to vote,  let alone organizing large Tea events with relevant speakers. 

Whether a Tea Party is held today, tomorrow or months from now its my guess that the Democrats will be calling foul, Republicans will try to take the credit and the Libs will still be pleading for neutrality.  The Tea Parties may have the intention of being non partisan, but it is negligent for the Republican, Dems, and Libs to not take advantage of the platform to peacefully review what is happening to our nation.  

Bob Basso portraying Thomas Paine summed it up by asking Americans to stand up against Congress and reclaim their republic now, or maybe lose it forever.  “Have you become a nation of cowards,” warning people that if they do nothing else, “buy a gun because your going to need it.”  

“Wake up, America.  While you were playing with the toys of your consumer wealth, you lost much more than your bloated economy of living beyond your means. You lost your representative democracy. Your servants have become your masters.  Taxation without representation is tyranny,” he said.

Bob Basso and more of my rant can be seen here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/29/bob-basso-summoned-to-white-house-by-obama/

The poster makes it look so cool to have a tea party in the UK.  This is not the image we have today with riots over the economy and the G20 summit.  Pix here- http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs/photos/2009/04/021195.html?mi_atom=The%20Frame

The G20 protesters are running around like little anarchists with their faces covered, spewing anti-capitalism and damaging The Royal Bank of Scotland.  I don’t see a tea pot in sight. 

America was founded on capitalistic principles.  The politics under Obama, Biden and Pelosi are insisting on changing America into a version of European socialism.  The EU’s economy isn’t any better than ours, but citizens who want to live under socialism, should just move to Europe where they can make fun of us far from far away, but they won’t go.

With calm appeal, that leaves the rest of us who are outraged.  Whatever your beef: the trillions of dollars in debt, poor management of existing regulations, unemployment, health care, education, bailouts, stimulus packages, or the heavy burdens of increased taxes, I urge you to consider attending or organizing a Tea Party on Tax Day, April 15.

The number of websites offering Tea Party activities is growing but http://taxdayteaparty.com/ is a concise place to find out what is going on in your own city and state.  Radio Patriot has some suggestions on getting a party started. http://radiopatriot.blogspot.com/2009/03/orlando-tea-party-organizer-offers.html

I pray that the protests any tea party do not attract the type of person who, rather than peacefully hold up a sign, will protest, whine, shout and break everything within sight.

The spread of democracy continues to be fought in Iraq, and Afghanistan with soldiers blood, sweat and tears.  Tea Party Tax Day is not the forum for spilling blood or violence on the streets of America. 

Get your feet out of the quicksand and on to the street.  You can be mad as hell, but the goal is to peacefully protest.
