>1) At the Pensacola Teabagging Party at least one person told the truth. Watch.

“back in 2000, there was a budget surplus in the country [lukewarm cheers], and then the next eight years, it was destroyed by the profligate spending of the Bush administration.”

“Your taxes are going to be cut under the current budget—congratulations!”

“So let’s remember that if you’re going to argue about lower taxes and less spending to place the blame where the blame belongs—and that’s squarely in the hands of the Republican Congress and the Bush administration.”

Did the guy make it out alive? (Thanks Kathy )

2) See whats developing at the Jonesboro Community Garden and view pictures. Bessemer Science and Nature .


3) What a surprise. The day that I promote my friend Malcolm Marler’s web site, he comes out!
Malcolm’s Coming Out. I kind of suspected.

4) Be safe this weekend. Be aware of your surroundings. If anything seems unusual, be suspicious.

5) Be sure to read what I had to say about Legion Field in The Western Tribune. It follows this post.

>"A Teabagging We Will Go,…"

April 14, 2009

>Not me, but conservative Republicans, led by David Vitter (who might know more about the subject than is proper) are set to hold a National Teabag-Off tomorrow across the country.

Republican Party chairman Michael Steele asked the organizers in Chicago if he could Teabag with them, and they refused him.

What’s the public teabagging about anyway?

Some say its a tax protest, held on tax day. But the taxes we are paying are the ones from the Bush era, since Obama hasn’t passed any taxes (and won’t).

Some say its a protest against the rising deficit, something they completely ignored during the Bush years. Also being ignored, polls that show that a large majority of Americans prefer to fix health care over reducing the deficit. And would rather spend more on education than fix the deficit. And this Gallup poll shows that 71% of Americans have a great deal or fair amount of confidence in President Obama when it comes to doing the right thing for the economy.

Some say its a protest against socialism. OK. Ask the teabaggers, if they are over 65, are they willing to give up medicare and social security? If they are under 65, are they ready to take those programs away from their parents?

What this teabagging tomorrow is really about is getting their rocks off because they can’t stand the fact that we have a successful well loved and respected president who happens to be black.

Teabaggers, enjoy your day. If you can’t teabag with your friends, who can you teabag? This is probably the only pleasure you will have for the next 8 years.
