Last week on April 15th I was at the dentists office. Nothing major, just a check up. Well, in this town I’m in FOX is on every TV that’s in a gym or restaurant or waiting room. They won’t turn it on MSNBC nor CNN….but only FOX. Yes, this is a small reactionary town that I’m currently in. In fact, the highway bypasses the place. It use to go through the town, but now it just goes past it.
Well, as you well know, it was the “Tea Bag” day. And of course, those there were calling themselves, “Tea baggers.”
Now, some of us actually get out and have a life. Others, like the vast majority of those at these protests, didn’t know what the day to day use of the term “tea bagger” or “tea bagging” meant. I just rolled. People in the waiting room thought I was off my rocker.
Odd thing is, at most of these “protests” people were there not just for “taxes” but other things. Like, oh say, they were against gun control, abortion, chewing gum, and so on.
What was funny was when the “reporter” for FOX would interview people and they weren’t there to castigate Obama. They were there for such things as government spending, the bail outs and so on. It was so bad that FOX had to bring one of their “talking heads” on to lambaste the President, his programs and so on. Yup, “fair and balanced” reporting.
Odd how these individuals and FOX never ever protested during the Bush administration nor the first six years of Mr. Bush’s presidency, when the national debt went from 3.8 Trillion to over 9 Trillion dollars.
Odd, isn’t it.
But hey, if you’re giggling like a school girl and getting your palm greased by government spending you would get upset about having to pay for the stuff when the bill comes due.
But that’s not why I’m writing this post. It was one of the signs a “protester” was carrying. It had a picture of Sean Hannity on it.
His mouth was open….as it always is…
And there was an arrow pointing to his chin.
There was a caption…..
It read…
“Put your ‘TEA BAGS’ here…”
And yes, it was on FOX…LIVE ON FOX….

Rick, I don't think I understand what tea bagging is. Can you show me in person? :)

There has been a "war without end" since WWII. It can even be argued that the US never really demobbed after WWI. It's spooky reading Eisenhower's farewell address today - and how much it has been ignored is depressing. Don't get me wrong - I have nothing against the military per se, and the humble soldier deserves more respect than they get, and fairer treatment. Don't forget, the "fiscal responsibility" jihadis are just as likely to take the razor to veterans pensions, health funds and compensation as they are to single mothers. But the sheer magnitude of the hypocrisy of doing this, whilst completely ignoring the ever growing defense budget, is staggering. There is no sane justification for most of the money being spent, nor for some of the projects being undertaken, the beast has gotten well and truly out of control. The "savings" made from kicking the little guys in balls are loose change when you look at defense expenditure. And these tea-bagger fucknuts are complaining about how their taxes are used without even giving a millisecond of thought to this.

The Mil and Intel people have been hurting money wise since the Cold War ended. When I was at a Guard state wide meeting we all agreed that the "War on Terror" was "Cold War II." But this time, there won't be an end....
Think about that..... all these clowns with no one to hate? They had nothing to do. Budgets are saved.....

I trust your definition of tea-bagging is the same as the one I was thinking. I find it a strangely appropriate term for these clowns.

For all their whining about "fiscal responsibility", not once do they even consider mentioning the perpetually flushing money toilet that is the military / intelligence industry. Not once. Imbeciles.
