CBC accuses Tea Party of wanting to lynch blacks.

Today reports are out in the press that the Congressional Black Congress has accused the T-Party of being racist and house representative Andre Carson of Indiana went as far as to suggest that some members of the T-Party might want to string a few black folks up.  Now, I’m no fan of the T-Party and I don’t doubt that there are some folks within it that harbor racist sentiment, but the fact that there exists racist people shouldn’t be exactly... Read More

A new poll: Does the tea party really have a mandate to cut spending?

  An interesting poll is out.  Here’s a excerpt from the WSJ summarizing the results: Less than a quarter of Americans support making significant cuts to Social Security or Medicare to tackle the country’s mounting deficit, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, illustrating the challenge facing lawmakers who want voter buy-in to alter entitlement programs. In the poll, Americans across all age groups and ideologies... Read More

A New Radio Show: The Tea Party and various other fictions

I’ve been thinking about adding a verbal edition to my written blog, but hadn’t gotten around to it until this weekend.  My intention was to record the following show merely as a test, but since it didn’t come out too badly, I’d thought I’d proceed with publishing it.  This initial show just includes me and the topic is an overall review of current political trends with a focus on the tea party.  As I move forward, I’ll... Read More

Bad News for Palin: She Badly Trails Other Potential 2012 Presidential Candidates Among Republicans

It’s beginning to look like the only people who consider Palin their darling are those with the tea party.  According to a recent poll, mainstream republicans don’t want her and what’s particularly bad news for Palin is that she polls badly even in her own state of Alaska. A few weeks ago, I suggested that the blue bloods in the republican party were going to tell Palin along with the tea party to put a sock in it and this is why. ... Read More

Tea Party’s Mark Williams defends “NAACP’s Letter to Lincoln”

There’s been a relentless attempt to goad African-Americans into an angry response on a number of fronts and the Tea Party’s Mark Williams’ satirical letter to Lincoln from the NAACP is the latest installment in this effort.  This bait that is being hung out there by far right wing should be ignored, but unfortunately the NAACP has blundered into a situation by grabbing it and the result was this letter and the interview below on CNN. The... Read More

Why the silence from the tea party lately?

  This is a fair question to ask in light of recent events, particularly in light of the fact that this movement claims it’s all about fiscal restraint.  What I refer to here is the situation of yet another bank bailout; this time our tax money has gone to bail out Greece and the European Union via the International Monetary Fund.  Moreover, our Federal Reserve is setting up more “stealth taxes” by printing up yet more dollars to set up swap... Read More

Armed Marching in Virginia

  Gun rights groups gather at Fort Hunt Park for an 'Open Carry Rally' April 19 in Alexandria, Virginia. Why am I not surprised by this?  There were two groups of gun advocates marching near the nation’s capital today with one group in Virginia packing heat.  Ostensibly, this was supposed to be a celebration of the second amendment but the symbolism here, in light of all of the recent events involving healthcare and militia group resurgence,... Read More
