Guess I'm a teabagger...

Thanks to the mainstream media, and their ridiculous uproar over, and mocking of, the recent tea parties, we've got a new meaning for an old phrase. "Tea bagging" is a term for a dirty sexual act. I won't define it here, if you really need to know what it is, use google. Now however, tea bagging also apparently means someone who believes in the constitution. It refers to someone who believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Tea baggers, or people who have attended the tea parties, are people who feel government is too big, is spending too much money and has far overstepped it's bounds. We're people who care too damn much about this country to sit back and watch it fall to pieces. As citizens, we have the first amendment right to free speech and peaceable assembly, and we chose and will continue to choose, to exercise those rights, as well as the rest guaranteed to us by the constitution.

I realize that the concept of peaceable assembly, where large groups of people come together to make their views known, seems like a foreign concept. For far too long, the silent majority has sat back and watched as extremists and talking heads have encouraged the spewing of hate and fear mongering. Finally, we have reached the threshold of what we can and will tolerate. Tea parties across the country, most organized by small groups of citizens looking to make a difference, were seemingly more than some could comprehend. There was no violence, just citizens united, each wanting to make their voices heard. In that regard, it was a success. The very fact that certain tasteless, tactless people have felt the need to attach what they view as a rude and obscene gesture to the movement tells me it had an impact. I urge you to not let them discourage you, as we continue to take a stand in rectifying the grave issues with which our country is faced. Our work is not done, but together, we can make a difference. I plan to continue the job started by the tea parties... I guess that makes me a proud tea bagger. Are you?

Tea Parties...America's reawakening

Just in case anyone is confused, I am not the great and mighty Duke, merely a fill in while he is off adventuring across America. It is an honor to be able to share my thoughts with you, his faithful readers, during this time.

I am sure that many of you were in attendance at a Tea Party this past week. I am equally sure that anyone present, at any of the many locations nationwide, would willingly testify to the power of being in a large crowd of like minded citizens. It was amazing! It was not, however, an isolated day of celebrating being an American and exercising our first amendment rights. It was a beginning. The beginning of a movement, the beginning of an awakening of the American people. As citizens of this great nation, it is not only our right, but our responsibility, to make our voices heard. We owe it to ourselves, to each other, and to future generations to ensure that this country returns to the path which has guided us to where we are.

It is critical that we all take the momentum and energy we experienced last Wednesday and let it inspire us to continue fighting for our country. As citizens, we have to stand up for what we believe, and let those who we have given positions of power know how we feel and what we want. We cannot afford to allow the displeasure expressed on tax day to be the end of our statement. With that in mind, I would like to offer a few suggestions as to how we, as individual citizens, can continue to progress the cause.

  • write a letter to the editor

  • write to your congressional representatives (state and federal)

  • start a blog

  • talk with friends and family

  • educate yourselves

  • educate your children

There are many, many ways beyond these to get involved and stay involved, including finding groups or organizations that share you views to support and become active in. These suggestions are merely simple things that we can do on a regular basis as citizens to help make our voices heard. As I said earlier, it is not only our right as citizens to get involved in the process, it is our responsibility... and one every citizen should take seriously. Now, go forth and make your voices heard!

Duke over America is DRIVING OVER AMERICA

Well folks, what does one do when the country is in peril and The President of the United States has a supporter named Garfolo that calls you a racist for attending a PEACEFUL rally?

You go on a ROAD TRIP.

I'm heading out west to VEGAS to meet up with some peoples and get some sunshine in cause Michigan has winters that last tooooo long. No global warming up here Mr Gore!!!

I look forward to seeing the country from the ground and meeting some of the fine folks that make up this country most of us still love.

I don't watch 24 cause I'm a racist

Ahhhhhhhh Keith Olberman and Janane Garofolo two things that go together wonderfully.

Like peanut butter and chocolate,

Bill & Hillary

Poop and a Diaper. ( with these two it's a lot of poop so we need a really big diaper)

In the latest installment of reality challenged T.V. our anti hero Keith has on the woefully uninformed Miss Garofolo. She proceeds to comment on everything TEA party related. She knows because she was there at the one in New York. ( she really wasn't but she knows cause she is soooo much smarter than the rest of us)

Anyone of course who was at these TEA parties is a redneck racist according to Miss Garofolo. Up to 250,000 people in these United States of America came out to protest a " Black man" as President.


I personally can't speak for all 4000 people at the TEA party in Lansing Mi but out of the 100 or so people I talked too not ONE of them gave a damn what color or gender the person who has the honor of sitting in the Oval office is, they care what they do! I know this because we all were ticked off that George W Bush had allowed this folly of bailouts to begin and ummmmmmmmm last time I checked Janene he is WHITE. That would probably go for the majority of the people who were there. As for being a redneck , if we are stereotyping I think I remember all rednecks liking NASCAR.


I wanted to tune into Miss Garfolo Air America show the next day to get reaction to the brew ha ha but I could not find it...I wonder why? Maybe they CANCELED Air America ;-)

The last part of her rambling is on Fox news being behind these protests and their ratings from it. This is a part where she has a lil street cred because she knows how to kill ratings.

From out friends over at Hot Air the entire video right here

BTW.....When is Keith gonna get a time out for his spoon feeding of this imbecile. Don Imus was backhanded for damn near the same thing but yet Keith get's hair gel and a stylist for yet another day. I wonder when the board of directors at MSNBC and NBC are gonna smack Zucker and get rid of the former sportscaster. Which will be a sad day for all of us who enjoy watching the deranged talk to the truly deranged.

A sleeping giant has AWOKEN

Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So I guess 4000 or more of my closest friends this past Wed don't know anything about the first amendment according to most of the MSM. We should not be protesting the LARGEST spending binge in HISTORY

Bullocks I say to them, BULLOCKS.

The TEA party this past Wed in Lansing Michigan was a rousing success and surpassed anything I was expecting. The Mich State Police estimated the crowd at 4000 plus and unlike most demonstrations on the left, everyone was peaceful and polite!!! It is now the job of all those who attended and those who could not but wanted to to start putting pressure on our elected officials to enact change.

I had the chance to meet some of the organizers and groups on this day and witness some of the hard work they put into it making it look easy.

A big thank you to all the people affiliated with Americans for Prosperity, The New Patriot Revolution, Smart Girl Politics, Fair Tax and the Mackinac Center. I know I'm missing some groups but I was not able to get around to everyone but rest assured there are more groups out there ready to help move this country back to it's foundation.

Rep Schakowsky is allergic to TEA Parties

Uh oh, someone woke up on the wrong side of the TEA party movement.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) had the misfortune of saying something INCREDIBLY stupid on Tax day this past Wed........

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted "tea party" protests yesterday, labeling the activities "despicable" and shameful."

"The 'tea parties' being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs," Schakowsky said in a statement.

Just when I thought my hometown of Detroit had a monopoly on really DUMB politicians, Illinois has to try to take back the crown

Despicable and shameful eh? For practicing my 1st amendment right? The only thing more uneducated than that is her regurgitating the " TAX CUT for 95% of Americans. Whoops I'm sorry, she must have a inside track on something cause the President has been saying 90% of all Americans. I'm sure with just recently racking up the LARGEST deficit spending in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD we are all going to get tax cuts.

But if we don't I wonder if it would be ok to protest that or am I just being cheeky?

Jane Hamsher....."Oops I fibbed"...No YOU LIED

SO this was the lead up to the SUCESSFULL Tea parties, a liberal demonstration that this lovely lady Jane Hamsher was a speaker at and she has no clue what she was talking about. Kinda was a lead up to the MSM take on the TEA parties. If FOX news had a stake it's real easy to prove right?

It's called a money trail, you don't have one so you are wrong.

I just love the way she high tails it out of there, she is a member of the Keith Olberman school of journalism.......RUN & HIDE

Just in time of the TEA parties..Jennifer Granholm shows TAX & TAX & Spend does not work!!!!!

Odd how these things sometimes happen. The Governor of this fine state of Michigan, Jennifer Granholm is delivering a message just in time for the nation wide TEA parties. States that spend too much and drive bushiness out have this happen......

Lansing -- The state budget situation is so bad that every dime of federal recovery money could be used to patch holes in the budget, and significant cuts would still have to be made, Gov. Jennifer Granholm said today.

"Suffice to say ... we have not seen an uptick in the sales tax, the income tax, the property tax or the business tax," Granholm said during a news conference at the State Capitol.

State tax receipts have been coming in at least $100 million a month short of projections made in January due to the anemic economy. Legislative leaders will huddle with the state budget director Thursday to discuss the budget in detail, the governor said.

You have not seen a uptick in state revenue? YA THINK!!!

Now sure Michigan has been hit HARD by the Big 3's troubles, but the fact of the matter is this state has driven business and people out for the better part of this Governors administration. Jennifer Granholm has never ONCE proposed to CUT the budget of this state that has had less people in it every year since she has been in office.

Hopefully the TEA parties that are happening this Wed will be the start of the renaissance that this state and the rest of the country need.

I smell some TEA brewing

As I said in a earlier post what a great way to start the week. First, yesterday was Easter Sunday and on this very special day for Christians another miracle of sorts happened when Captain Richard Phillips was rescued by U.S navy seals.

And now this Wednesday is the National TEA party held at locals ALL over the good ole US of A.

Here in MICHIGAN this is going to be the start of changing the way this state government has done business for YEARS. Today's Detroit News has a very interesting article about the upcoming TEA parties and quotes Scott Hagerstrom from Americans for Prosperity on how our Governor has NOT learned her lessons in business 101 very well!!!

"It seems that all Lansing wants to do is solve problems by raising taxes, using Michigan citizens as an ATM," said protest organizer Scott Hagerstrom, Michigan director for the Americans for Prosperity, a national free market advocacy group.

"The governor has proven that the way to bring businesses to Michigan is to cut taxes," he said. "The film industry is flourishing here now because of their tax cuts and we want them for all Michigan citizens. Take the shackles off everyone so they can use their creative prowess."

This is a great point, cut TAXES and you don't have to fly all over the world to bring business to Michigan, business will come to you!!!

I hope if your in Michigan you will be able to join me in Lansing this Wed at noon with Smart Girl politics, #don't go movement and with special Guest, Joe the Plumber. If you can't make it to Lansing or live in some other great part of this republic then check out this website

GET INVOLVED and help to bring this state and the rest of the country back to fiscal sanity, one voter at a time if need be!

The Detroit News article isRight Here if you want to read more on this story

Happy Easter & Other cool stuff

What a great way to start the Week. Easter starts off the week with the celebration of Jesus beating Death and Sin over the noggin.

Capt Richard Phillips was brought to safety by the U.S navy seals after being held by terrorists ( SCREW calling them Pirates)

And Tea Parties are happening this week to start the process of taking the federal government back to a responsible spending schedule.

I hope everyone had a GREAT Easter and is ready for the coming fights. Let's go out and make a difference and have some FUN doing it

To BOW or NOT to BOW...or is it a BOW?

Late last week I had posted this entry about the BOW seen round the world.

Well the White House is having a problem figuring out what a BOW is.....

The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets.

"It wasn't a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he's taller than King Abdullah," said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

I would want to be anonymous also if I was trying to float that B S line. For my Liberal friends who are all a flutter about the right going NUTS or trying to be misleading about Obama's intentions for the country, please tell me the White House denying this is anything other than LUNACY!!!!!!

Here is the video once again in case anyone has not seen it. Still waiting for one lil joke about this too from Stewart or Letterman.

The BOW seen round the world

Are you kidding me? I mean seriously, is no one at the state department able to tell this buffoon that he is a HEAD OF STATE and you do NOT BOW at all. First we give out bad DVD's and than give the queen a I-POD of his greatest speeches and now you BOW to other heads of state.

What this country was thinking when we elected amateur hour crew is beyond me, but bowing to the corrupt King of Saudi is just beyond the pale.

I was not always loving Bush 43's relationship with the Saud's but now I kinda miss W's hand holding with them. At least he wasn't bowing over to take it if you know what I mean

Here's the clip.......

Tea Parties are coming .....Tea Parties are coming

The TEA parties are coming to a city near you. This is the chance to get out and show WHY this country still rocks the damn world and to show the socialists who are trying to make us mundane that THEY are insane.

I personally will be at the Lansing , Michigan TEA party with about 1000 or so other like minded patriots( including Smart Girl Politics, Don't go movement & Joe the Plumber) who are sick of the spending that this administration and previous ones have shoved down our throats.

I ask EVERYONE get involved and help to make a difference, this country is too precious to allow misguided people follow flawed and failed policies that have ruined other countries.

If you need to find a tea party near you go to..

And to get ready for the PARTY watch this video to get a lil pumped up. A big thanks to fellow blogger and RFC radio contributor Ms Leslie Carbone who posted this on her excellent blog site here

I just LOVE the fact that John Lennon and the plastic OH NO band are featured for the song.........But this April 15 th is truly going to be POWER TO THE PEOPLE

Bill Maher is a DIRT BAG

Absolutely disgusting

This lil gem comes from Hot Air. Bill Maher dishonors the troops who are much braver than he could ever dream of being.

If I would ever be within shot of him with a paintball gun, I would nail him in the nads, except for the fact a Chicken shit like this I'm sure doesn't have any.
