Far Right Crazies, (now public/private sector compensation talk)

What is going on with some of the people on the far right? One whos trying to pass legislation that Birthers want.

<object width="640" height="505"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/c_8VQVhRmAc&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/c_8VQVhRmAc&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="505"></embed></object>


Then I seen this video of a guy interviewing people at a Tea Party, and one women says Obama is trying to Ban Fishing in america.

We had a whole thread on how Obama plans on banning knives.

If the government gives a man a fish, they will keep coming to the government for more fish.

Teach a man to fish and they will start voting Republican. And Democrats will increase their fishing license fees.

I think our esteemed moderator is beginning to take this forum a little too seriously.

I think it's a good thread.

It will probably garner quite a few responses. That is the purpose of this forum, isn't it?

If he bans fishing, how is he going to collect revenue on all those fishing licenses?

That's a good idea.

Second video: There were one or two incisive, well-considered comments mixed in with the woefully ignorant swill of the majority. I feel sorry for informed, rational folks who show up at those rallies and find themselves amidst throngs of catchphrase-repeating troglodytes.

Re: Far Right Crazies, from Birthers to Women saying Obama is gonna Ban Fishing

I think it has come this.

When asked what the tea party wants to fix specifically, there is no answer.

I believe they want the ability to protest and bluster about the economy being in the shitter and the presidency is an easy target. There are no pin point issues they want solved and when it is pointed out to them that the issue they DO want resolved affects them DIRECTLY, they quickly backstep.

Tea Party - Get your Blowhard Bluster On!

I support their right to have a temper tantrum, provided nobody gets hurt. That's all this really is. I've raised two sons. I know what a temper tantrum is.

I'm guessing that the banning fishing lady is one of the tea party infiltrators. That's a bit over-the-top, to say it mildly.

I just saw a segment of Hardball.

I think Ron Paul (and I'm certainly no fan of Ron Paul) made it clear what the Tea Party wants to fix.

Are you going to share with the rest of us, or do I have to watch {shudder} Chris Matthews to find out?

I think the Tea Party has been pretty clear in opposing the steady growth of government, such as with the new Health Care legislation.

You might ask what they want specifically for health care reform. I think the response would be a market-based solution with increased competition across states, or nothing at all. Because "something" isn't always better than nothing.

Just because you don't hear their answer doesn't mean there isn't one.

When they say they are overtaxed, it doesn't mean they simply want taxes cut. It means they want to decrease spending and programs such that tax cuts would be the result, and thwart new programs that are being implemented that will result in future taxation.

If what you say is an accurate representation of the Tea Partiers, then they are pretty foolish if they believe that Republicans are any closer to their positions than Democrats.

Most of what I've heard has them pretty upset at both parties at the moment. Republicans supported the stimuli, for the most part the bailouts... items the Tea Party is quite strongly opposed to.

Yes, but when it comes to election day, they'll vote Republican because those are the candidates telling them what they want to hear.

I think he more discussed his point of view than the tea party in general, mainly because Matthews was talking about the social vs. fiscal views in the movement and how supporters are split. He even conceeded the point that most tea partiers probably don't share his social views. Matthews pointed out the split between Paul's portion tea party and Pailin's. And Paul took what I'd imagine was a little jab at Palin in the end.

I think that goes without saying, since the Democrats are also being completely dismissive. What will be interesting is whether the level this has reached has any staying power with elected candidates should tides shift. So long as Republicans are in the minority, they can safely keep to the message of fiscal responsibility without much required to back it up.

It's difficult for a libertarian to discuss his social views. For example, he might be pro-life in his personal beliefs, but might not believe that he should force his personal views on other people. I think Paul said as much.

He also indicated that when questioned about same-sex marriages. He said he believed that government shouldn't be involved in marriage period.

Also because The Tea Party isn't a real political party with candidates.
