    There’s a bit of silver lining in the wingnut protests witnessed this week. For starters, after careful deliberation, they selected a name for their event that’s slang for a sexual act involving a scrotum. I’m still chuckling over that one.

    Then, as we watched the sheeple arrive at their protest sites their handmade signs were quite revealing. Many of them centered on a high tax theme. That’s also really revealing and amusing. The Republican plan they seemed to support, would actually virtually double the tax brake for individuals earning $1 million or more per year, and judging the look of the crowd, they weren’t members of that group. But maybe they just wanted to show their sympathy for the poor wealthy folks. They seemed clueless that Obama's tax plan would give a tax break to 95% of Americans.

    Others had signs complaining about government spending. This is a new found position for the sheeple. For eight years they excused away, rationalized and justified the worst president in America’s history, that inherited a budget surplus then turned into record debt in the blink of an eye. They showed they’re still in a state of denial over the GOP economic policies, including deregulation, which created a horrific mess that has to be fixed. Instead, they were told what to think and be upset about, and like loyal lemmings the sheeple joined in lockstep.

    They also seemed somewhat, probably totally oblivious to the fact that their event was created by Republican lobbyists groups, headed by very rich individuals. That’s another good sign. As long as the 19% deadenders choose to remain loyal, clueless sheeple, the Republican Party is going to remain a fringe group. Why in Texas they’re now actually starting a discussion about seceding from the United States. That probably plays well in the trailer parks, but is quite comical to the rest of us.

    All in all, the event only served as yet another example of why Republicans have been clobbered in the last two national elections. They showed no lessons have been learned to reverse the trend, and that’s good for America.

    Funny how people protesting the immoral confiscation of their money, are called "sheeple", yet when liberals get together, smash windows, block city streets, and otherwise become a menace to society, they are not.

    That said, a few problems.
    First of all... debt. You claim we rationalized it. Yet here Obama has actually doubled the national debt. So what is your rational? Hypocrites? Why yes, you all are hypocrites. Ironically, I never rationalized it. I was fairly ticked about Bush's over spending. Of course that's a drop in the bucket compared to what Overspend-Obama has done in a mere fraction of the time.

    Second, Tax cuts. You claim Obama's tax cuts are going to stimulate the economy. Funny I remember the left attacking Bush for passing tax cuts, which supposedly turned the "surplus" which never existed, into a deficit. Well that's funny, Obama is passing a tax cut, and has tripled the deficit from what it was. Hypocrite? Why yes, all you scum bag liberals are.

    Third, Amusingly I've heard that Obama's tax cuts are going to hit the most people that a tax cut ever has. Amusing since, it doesn't hit the highest quintile of wager earners, which is nearly 25% of the population. This is also funny given Bush's tax cuts hit EVERYONE. Liars? Why yes, ALL liberals are complete liars.

    Finely, you fail to understand that this bailout/stimulus/Obama pork projects, are going to have to be paid for. Eventually, the government will be forced to raise taxes to pay back all the money given out. That's the whole point. A short term tiny 'targeted' tax cut, is a grain of sugar on an icing-less cake of government spending. Not to mention that the government is currently printing money. Inflation is going to wreak havoc in the next few years if spending isn't completely stopped. Ignorant? Yes, all liberals are completely ignorant of how the world works.

    In short, this post is proof of the lying, ignorance, and hypocrisy of the left. Thanks for documenting it for us.

    You are so right. They are nothing and they should just be completely ignored by everyone as they are by the smarter media outlets. Don't worry one bit about a tiny few wingnuts. Yea, that's the ticket.
