Thursday Thuds. What the Tea Party is NOT about!
Absolutely, Positively and most assuredly there AIN'T NO DOUBT in Cookie's mind that this is what we need on southern border!
My Wife Asked Me......
My wife asked me, "How many women have you slept with?"
I proudly replied, "Only you, Darling. With all the others, I was awake."
Hospital Visiting Hours are 10 AM to 8 PM
A preacher said, "Anyone with 'special needs'? Who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the altar."
With that, Marvin got in line, and when it was his turn, the Preacher asked, "Marvin, what do you want me to pray about for you?"
Marvin replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing." The preacher put one finger of one hand in Marvin's ear, placed his other hand on top of Marvin's head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed a "blue streak" for Marvin, and the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm.
After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked, "Marvin, how is your hearing now?"
Marvin answered, "I don't know. It ain't 'til Thursday."
NO!! This is NOT what the Tea Party movement is all about!!
I saw this sign on AOL News this morning and just groaned and thought, "Great, the left will have a ball with this one," and sure enough, they are. MSNBC is already having their say about it. I'm sure others will be jumping on the bandwagon shortly.
Every movement/cause in the world has, and unfortunately, always will have extremist fringe elements in their midst, and this sign is a good example. This sign by an Iowa Tea Party group is meant to instill fear and hatred in folks who really don't understand exactly what's happening regarding the trend toward Socialism in our country under the Obama administration.
I am a Tea Party member, and YES, I most certainly believe Obama and most of his ilk and political comrades are socialists and promoting Socialism in our Republic. Van Jones was/is a devout Communist.To me there is NO DOUBT as to this, but this sign is absolutely the wrong way to go about informing folks about Obama's goals and his left/socialist agenda. It makes all of us in the Tea Party look like ignorant uneducated racists and haters. NOT SO!
Almost all the folks I have met thus far in the Tea Party are down to earth patriotic folks with good Christian standards and beliefs. They are folks who are fed up with out of control spending, soon to be higher taxes. Folks who are fed up with backroom political deals that took place when Health Care "reform" was pushed down or throats. Folks who are concerned about "Cap & Trade" and how it will negatively impact them. Folks who are fed up with the massive ILLEGAL immigration problem. They are NOT Racists or Prejudiced against people of color as the NAACP just voted we were. REPEAT, NOT Racists!
It should definitely be noted that the folks that I have met and seen at some of the protests/meetings that have been otherwise and/or have been carrying extreme signage and yelling extreme sayings have, after questioning them for a few minutes turned out be people who are in fact Left wing nutcases who have "infiltrated" the meetings and protests with the express purpose of making us all look bad in front of the media. I don't know if this is the case with this Iowa group or not, but it would appear at this juncture that they are some of the extremists I spoke of earlier. Only a look into their background will tell the true story.
BTW, you'll notice that I did not say "Democrat" infiltrators and that is because I have met a great many Democrats in the Tea Party movement as well as Republicans and Independents. Clear thinking Democrats who see and recognize the threats and what is going on are concerned and upset, as well they should be.
To you Tea Party members reading this, Left Wing and "nutcase" infiltrators ARE present and will do things like this to make us all look bad, so at your next function, look at the person next to you and what kind of sign he/she is carrying. If you have doubts, talk to him or her and after a short time you'll have your answer. Most just cannot bring themselves to say "Obama Sucks".
You may want to ask some other folks to "tone down" or eliminate any extreme rhetoric.
