Those dillusional democrats are going to keep up the lie

Democrats are understandably — and largely justified in being — frustrated that they lost an election based on Republicans defending tax cuts for the wealthy that are only expiring because of a budget gimmick championed by George Bush — and based on criticism of their apparent lack of concern over the deficit, by a party that has shown no past or current seriousness about deficit reduction and the hard choices involved. Losing those political fights was as inexplicable as it was hard for the Democrats. Maybe that’s why Thursday seemed to have donkeys melting down all over the place.
How many stupid people believe this tripe? Well, it’s Time magazine so that means everyone who reads it.
These guys want to make us believe that they lost because the Republicans were “defending tax cuts for the wealthy” and because the Democrats showed an “apparent lack of concern over the deficit?” Here we go, trying to rewrite the truth and make us believe something entirely fictional. These must be their new talking points and we all know that if you tell a lie enough times, it becomes real.
“Losing those political fights was as inexplicable as it was hard for the Democrats.” See? They still don’t get it. They lost and there’s simply no sensible explanation for it, therefore The People were stupid, uninformed, misinformed and taken in by the Republicans.
They lost the election because they have gone berserk spending OUR money and putting us in debt for generations to come.
They lost the election because they have effectively taken away the American dream from millions of us and for millions in generations to come.
They lost the election because they refused to listen to the people when we told them we didn’t like what they were doing and wanted them to stop.
They lost the election because they rammed through crap without reading or knowing what they were voting on.
They lost the election because of back room deals and bribes to win the passage of bills that most of us didn’t want.
They lost the election because the Hope and Change we were promised was really socialism and people figured that out.
They lost the election because of their total disregard for the Constitution.
We can’t allow them to hijack this story. They know full well why they lost the election but they want to convince the American people that they lost because the Republicans were just that much slicker than they were.
They lost because in their zeal to take over an entire lackadaisical nation, The People woke up and pushed back. And God willing, we won’t stop.

Time says Tea party’s real cause is Civil War

From Time via the Drudge Report:
[W]ith the Tea Party gaining followers, the idea of civil war over economic issues doesn’t seem that far-fetched these days. And Ron Paul definitely thinks the Fed should be ended. In TIME’s recently cover story on the militia movement many said these groups are powder kegs looking for a catalyst. So why not a Fed policy committee meeting. Still, I’m not convinced we are headed for Fedamageddon.

This story from Time magazine about the Federal Reserve Bank, is a fine example of how the MSM and all the marxist organizations are portraying us and will continue to portray us. Not only are we being blamed for racist signs and slurs, but now we are fomenting a civil war. We are going to be blamed for any and all unrest or crimes that occur, forward into infinity. If it’s a knucklehead who flies his plane into an IRS building, that will be the fault of the entire TEA party.  The TEA party will be held accountable and denunciations of the acts of total jerks, will be demanded by the marxist groups like the NAACP or even in the MSM.
We are not willing to just go along so we have become the enemy.

Quote of the day – from those morons at Time

What economists know very well, but most of the rest of us do not is that the unemployment rate never hits 0%. Well duh! What a stupid statement! Of course it will never hit 0%. It never even gets close. It never even gets close? Read on: In fact, even in good times, the unemployment rate has been creeping up over time. During the 1960s, the unemployment rate was below 4% for nearly four years, going as low as 3.5%. During the amazing late-1990s-early-2000s economic boom, though, never got as low as that. The unemployment rate touched 4%, dipping below that only briefly for just a few months. I think that 3.5 or 4% or even 5% is pretty damned close to what we’d all like to see. Close enough for me, compared to almost 10% now, although many believe that number is much higher. In 2008, (still during the Bush administration) the rate dropped to around 4.5% and that was the best it got. The best it got??? How many Americans would like to see an unemployment rate like that right now? In fact, for most of the time during the housing market and credit boom that was the late 2000s, the unemployment rate stood at 5%-7%. Even this is better than what we are seeing now. Good Lord! How stupid do these people at Time think we are?

American citizenship revocations double

For U.S. citizens, cutting ties with their native land is a drastic and irrevocable step. But as Overseas American Week, a lobbying effort by expatriate-advocacy groups, convenes in Washington this week, it’s one that an increasing number of American expats are willing to take. According to government records, 502 expatriates renounced U.S. citizenship or permanent residency in the fourth quarter of 2009 — more than double the number of expatriations in all of 2008. And these figures don’t include the hundreds — some experts say thousands — of applications languishing in various U.S. consulates and embassies around the world, waiting to be processed. While a small number of Americans hand in their passports each year for political reasons, the new surge in permanent expatriations is mainly because of taxes.

When the left media finally addresses Jones, it’s like this:

Up until recently, Van Jones, who is widely respected as an environmental activist, has been targeted by conservative pundits, who argue that his impolitic remarks, and the fact that he once identified as a “communist,” raises concerns about a secret agenda in the Obama White House, a suggestion that is unhinged, and not only because President Obama is in no way pursuing any policies that can be accurately characterized as “communist.” Jones, for his own part, no longer espouses “communism,” and his role, as an adviser to the CEQ, puts him at a far remove from major questions of economic policy.

But the fact that Jones appears to have espoused conspiracy theories about 9/11 seems to have changed the conversation, if only because the White House is now playing defense, declining to answer reporter questions. As it now stands, the White House does not have a ready answer for Jones’ past behavior, beyond the fact that he says he no longer agrees with those views. Heading into Labor Day weekend, White House spokesman Gibbs just does not want to talk about it.

From Time magazine

These 2 paragraphs speak for themselves. I don’t need to point out to you where the author’s gone wrong. It’s an opinion piece so there is no expectation of fairness and bias is expected, but this is a good illustration of the Obama apologetic press.
