The time has come to tell it like it is. Tea Party People are S – T – U – P – I – D!
Case in point: A fake tea party Dem Plant is running in NV as a Tea Party Candidate. He is going to throw the vote to Harry Reid because tea party people are so damn stupid they cannot even read. They only do what they are told to do. If they had any brains they would be using them instead of spouting incorrect facts!
They are crazy. They are populist.
“…Calvin Jillson, a political scientist at Dallas’s Southern Methodist University, believes the Tea Party can be understood as the latest in a long line of explosions of political rage in America. They include the Populist party that won elections in several states during the 1890s recession and the millions who voted for Ross Perot’s presidential candidacy in the 1990s. “These things happen but they burn out like a prairie fire. We are in the middle of it right now but when the economy picks up it will fade away,” Jillson said….”
As early as last Wednesday, Lindsey was privately telling people Cap/Trade was dead. If you have been following his behind-the-scenes “climate change” bill, it makes one wonder if that was not the whole approach after all, killing it. The Pink Flamingo has wondered about that for awhile, if Lindsey were not doing the conservative GOP Trojan Horse thing. (For idiot Tea Party Twits who know absolutely nothing but hate, go watch the movie, Troy).
“…About 100 people demonstrated outside Graham’s office in downtown Greenville, chanting “No cap and trade.” The demonstration comes at a time when indications are cap and trade might not be included if and when the Senate passes an energy bill….And The Washington Post reported Saturday that Graham, in a private meeting with environmentalists last week, said, “Cap and trade is dead.” Graham was not quoted in The Poststory, which attributed the quote to unnamed sources. However, his spokesman, Kevin Bishop, told The Greenville News
on Saturday that Graham said it….Demonstrators came from all over the Upstate for the event Saturday sponsored by FreedomWorks, a national group chaired by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey. The group’s stated mission is to recruit “hundreds of thousands of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom.”Kathy Murphy of Six Mile, affiliated with two Tea Parties in the Upstate in addition to FreedomWorks, said the demonstration focused on cap and trade in particular and Graham in general. Murphy said she and others are also upset with Graham for his vote to approve Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor…Murphy said there are other ways to clean up the air…”
“I am all for giving incentives and everything for businesses,” she said. “Give them incentives to go energy-efficient. I’m all for us getting off our dependency on foreign oil, you know, but drill baby drill. We’ve got oil here.”…”
The quote above is proof the Tea Party Idiots DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. What Lindsey is all about is helping business, giving them incentives, and getting off this dependency of foreign oil. But – our little Tea Party idiot is so full of hate she can’t read!
“...The technology doesn’t make sense until you price carbon. Nuclear power is a bet on cleaner air. Wind and solar is a bet on cleaner air. You make those bets assuming that cleaning the air will become more profitable than leaving the air dirty, and the only way it will be so is if the government puts some sticks on the table — not just carrots. The future economy of America and the jobs of the future are going to be tied to cleaning up the air, and in the process of cleaning up the air this country becomes energy independent and our national security is greatly enhanced….”
The whole tawdry cap/trade idiocy is proof that you can’t please any of the extreme idiots any of the time. The tea party twit libertarian Ron Paul Bots are furious with Lindsey. The Pink Flamingo thinks that is simply just an excuse to vent their hate. You see, Ron Paul Bots cannot think on their own. They must be carefully taught to hate. From what I gather there is no love lost between Lindsey and Ron Paul, ergo Lindsey Graham is evil and must be destroyed.
The quote from the Tea Partier says it all to me. It is not about “freedom”. It isn’t about “taxes”. It is about H – A – T – E…. Ron Paul losertarian idiots and the extreme Far Right hates Lindsey. They detested GWB. They hate John McCain. They are soon gonna hate Hottie Scottie. And, if you want The Pink Flamingo’s humble opinion, Sarah Palin is also in their cross-hairs. They hate. Any group lead by Ron Paul and Glenn Beck is scary, and dangerous. They hate.
“…With Glenn Beck and Ron Paul emerging as the faces of the New New Right, and with the electoral poundings of 2006 and 2008 still fresh in Republicans’ minds, even Michael Gerson probably couldn’t claim with a straight face that there will be any return to Bush Republicanism in the near future. While the Beltway conservative establishment and the grey-hairs at the RNC would probably welcome its return, the folks on the ground are embracing a philosophy that is part classical liberalism and part Old Right, with a penchant for national defense and a tent built on the pillars of small government and economic and personal freedom. And as the Right evolves, pundits continue to scratch their heads and ponder just what went wrong with Compassionate Conservatism….”
(For more information on that one, read this informative interview with Tom Tancredo. He no longer considers himself a Republican.)
“…As a Republican congressman from Colorado, Tom Tancredo became well-known for his hard-line opposition to illegal immigration. Last year, the 65-year-old retired from the House of Representatives after a decade. Meanwhile, the country shifted to the left during his prospectless bid for the Republican presidential nomination. Moderate John McCain won the primaries, Barack Obama became president and there seemed to be no place left for Tancredo in national politics. But now he has made his way back into the limelight as one of the faces of the Tea Party movement. In the course of last year, anti-tax protestors took hold of the public debate on government spending and healthcare. Mainly libertarians and older conservatives from rural areas in particular are taking to the streets with fierce slogans (‘Obama = socialism’) and a deep loathing of “cultural elites”. Earlier this month, Tancredo was the opening speaker at the movement’s first national convention in Nashville. In an interview with NRC Handelsblad, he talked about the Tea Party movement, senator John McCain and Sarah Palin, the former vice-presidential candidate and a heroine of the movement. After her speech at the Nashville convention, Palin said she is considering a run for the presidency in 2012. Tancredo however, does not believe she is fit for the presidency.
“I really don’t have this feeling about her as being presidential,” he Tancredo said. “I don’t know what it is exactly. I don’t know if the issues really are that difficult for her or not.” He questions if she has what it takes, and whether she really wants it. “As governor of the state of Alaska, she doesn’t have all that kind of experience. She can get better. But I don’t know if she is really looking to do it.’’ It could all be a commercial thing, just a way to sell books?
“Sure. Make a lot of money and stay in the mix. I think that’s a great idea.’’ John McCain has brought over his former running mate to campaign for him in Arizona, where the Tea Party movement is challenging his seat in the Senate. She will campaign against J.D. Hayworth, a friend of yours who is on your side in the immigration debate. What does that tell you about Palin? “That tells me she is a Republican. I am not. I mean, I am a member of that party and that will always stay that way. But to me it’s only a mechanism, a way to get on the ballot and all that. But she is a real Republican.’’…”
The idiots on the left are angry also. The Pink Flamingo does not use the Glenn Beck obfuscation word “progressive”. It’s a stupid word. The Pink Flamingo calls ’em as she sees ’em and let’s use the word “liberal”. Liberals are mad because cap/trade is dead.
Why is Lindsey fighting the idiots?
“…“Cap-and-trade as we know it is dead, but the issue of cleaning up the air and energy independence should not die — and you will never have energy independence without pricing carbon,” Graham argues. “The technology doesn’t make sense until you price carbon. Nuclear power is a bet on cleaner air. Wind and solar is a bet on cleaner air. You make those bets assuming that cleaning the air will become more profitable than leaving the air dirty, and the only way it will be so is if the government puts some sticks on the table — not just carrots. The future economy of America and the jobs of the future are going to be tied to cleaning up the air, and in the process of cleaning up the air this country becomes energy independent and our national security is greatly enhanced.”
Remember, he adds: “We are more dependent on foreign oil today than after 9/11. That is political malpractice, and every member of Congress is responsible.”
This isn’t just for the next generation, says Graham: “As you talk about the future, if you forget the people who live in the present, you will have no future politically. You have to get the people in the present to buy into the future. I tell my voters: ‘If we try to clean up the air and become energy independent, we will create more jobs than anything I can do as a senator.’ General Electric makes all the turbines for the G.E. windmills in Greenville, South Carolina.” He also is pushing to make his state a manufacturing center for nuclear reactor components and biomass from plants and timber….”
