So, are they going to dress up like Indians?

As mentioned in an earlier post, there’s going to be a tax protest at Covell Lake where participants will reenact the Boston Tea Party. It’s being organized on facebook. I think a counter protest should dress as British redcoats and threaten to arrest the protestors for treason against the crown – not because they don’t have a right to protest taxes, but because it would be equally silly and pointless.

Funny how almost no one complained when the last administration outspent all the others combined.

PS: Everyone’s favorite back-cracker is organizing the event.

I was listening to Neo-Con Talk Radio, and I heard multiple mentions of impeachment for this whole ‘taxing the bonuses’ crap because it goes against the constitution.
Is it just me or is that fucked up after what W. and his administration put the country through with his “War on Terror”?

AG- That’s why I don’t listen to NEO-con talk radio- blah, blah, blah. They have there audience and it is very, very, very small.

Hey, Dude, I posted this story link the other day under the quacktorpractor story

Eh… Must have missed it somehow. I just couldn’t let that picture go to waste.

Also, did the wingnuts stop to think about how they could impeach the president A) without having control of congress, or B) realizing that congress was just as responsible as the prez?

Kelsey who has Dakota Women blog wrote the story, I guess the original headline was going to be; “Unruhs Lead South Dakota’s Conservatives in Mass Teabagging”

You realize all conservatives have is talk right now – that’s it. And fancy mounted posters of stacks of money.

Little difficult to impeach someone over the taxing the bonuses issue when he hasn’t signed the bill to actually tax the bonuses.

Is it just me or do the talking heads on talk radio not even understand how government works? I sincerely doubt Congress is going to impeach itself.

Our city council and mayor have no clue how Federal subsidies work, so it doesn’t surprise me.

Ya know AG. I think you and I got off on the wrong foot. Compared to where I usually call home when reading forums or blogs you are a breath of fresh air.

Thanx

A good treason counter would be red sports coat persons with paper stick printed masks in a mockup recent picture of the mayor and city council. The city is a kingdom that ‘T’s off those of us who support the constitution. In the next election, we’ll crown them with one big dump.

Let’s do it for real.

Maybe for future stophomerulesiouxfalls.com site. Can it be photofabricated?

#11 Plaintiff Guy on 03.26.09 at 4:48 pm

I have a billboard west and working on one barely into Minnesota. How about 8′ x 16′?

Warren- Like I told you before AG is the kinda guy who likes to poke hornet’s nests with a stick, like myself – he was just trying to get your gander up. His cute babies make up for everything.

GREAT photo – maybe one of the signs should read “I’M WITH STUPID”
…and have the arrow pointing straight down?

#14 Randall on 03.27.09 at 9:23 am

I went to the facebook site to check out the tea-bag invitiation. Followed the links to the AmericanSolutions page. Clicked the “ABOUT” button and there ya go:
General Chairman Newt Gingrich

Same old bullshit from the same old bullshitters…

But I’ll be at the tea-bagging party. (yuk yuk) I think it’ll be fascinating – in a Jerry Springer, Roller-derby, train-wreck sort of way.

#15 Angry Guy on 03.27.09 at 9:45 am

Really depends on the day too.. some days I’d like nothing more than to gut some random asshole that pisses me off and roll around in his blood… other days I’m REALLY irritable.
DL, we should have a BBQ one of these days and SopaPop can dry hump my toddler for the enjoyment of the masses.

Hey, don’t compare the Roller Derby girls to those freakazoids.

Here’s your shirt:

#17 Randall on 03.28.09 at 8:19 am

l3wis, wrong about the shirt, though…
(right about the roller-derby girls – my bad)
the shirt you pointed to, for the tea-baggers, would have that arrow pointing straight UP!

#18 l3wis on 03.29.09 at 3:47 pm

I know, I had a friend who had a shirt like that.
