My friend sent me the forward titled "Best Sign of the Year"
The teabagger’s sign read, “Give Tiger a break, Obama’s screwing the whole country.”
I didn’t know Tiger needed a break. Gosh, they really do feel sorry for millionaires, don’t they?
My buddy asked, “Once again my poor mislead sis. u got anything 2 remedy her sickness?”
I’m afraid she and others like her may not see their anger as part of a “sickness”. Here’s some “medicine” that she will likely refuse, but it will help immunize you and others from her condition.
The screwing the angry man’s sign mentions was more likely from the Republicans and conservative Democrats. I’ll share some real fact-based information with you about this.
Remember when protesting meant something? Like protesting a government that wanted to send your ass to Vietnam to die, and... for...what? Now THAT was something to protest. Those people had a real grievance.
Millions of us protested Bush/Cheney’s murderous war based on lies about Iraq. That was also a legitimate grievance. The so-called “liberal media” didn’t show near as much of that as they do the thousands, or hundreds, of teabaggers, though that’s another story.
Now the tea bagging Ditto Heads and Becker-heads whine and cry about taxes, Constitutional taxation. Never have such privileged white folks whined so much about so little. Obama CUT most people’s taxes, but they are either too stupid to know that, or too rich to care, or are just plain hateful racists. They shriek about Big Government spending, but want their wars, Medicare, and Social Security. Yes they do.
They themselves are socialist enough to want Medicare and Social Security. But they don’t want to hear that. (Remember the “Take your government hands off my Medicare” sign?)
They want more tax breaks and tax cuts for the RICH REPUBLICANS. The teabaggers are puppets dancing to the Republican Big Money Band. Never mind they are making out like bandits with all the wealth that Reagan started redistributing to them.
Teabaggers are spoiled crybabies. They are the whitest, widest and whiniest crybabies ever.
Here’s the REAL redistribution of wealth that the Republican teabaggers don’t want you to know about.
This is from the Tax Policy Center.
Post-Reagan Income Re-Distribution:
Historical Income Distribution for All Households:
In 2006, the most recent data available, the top percentile of earners made 55.7 percent of all pre-tax income. The bottom 40 percent of earners made only 13.2 percent.

Wow! SOMEBODY has been making a killing these past years.
And this is only up to 2006. The trend has not reversed in the last few years.
Some teabaggers like to complain about what Obama is doing to our jobs.
Here’s something ELSE they don’t care to know.
Look at the Bush/Obama transition years and the trends in job losses and gains.
So you see, the poor conned-servatives would rather listen to Limbaugh and Beck say things that make them angry, than to learn the facts. I think they like being angry. It’s easier to blame others and have scapegoats for everything that’s gone wrong. I’m afraid it is the dark side of human nature. It is the authoritarian personality. If you substitute the word “Jews” for the words “liberals, or “progressives”, in Limbaugh/Beck talk you’d get a clear picture of where they learned their game.I wish I knew what else to do for them. We can only tell them the truth.
That kool-ade they’re drinking must be very delicious indeed.
