    Tea Parties a Big Success

    Golf, in an earlier posting you stated you worked very hard to get where you are. I just wonder what your definition of working very hard is. Was it reinvesting your inheritance? I know a lot of people that work very hard (real sweat) and are not super rich. Anyway, I am interested in your definition of hard work. As to Obama, he is working harder than the last President, by far. He has to; to clean up the mess we are in.

    • I believe I said I was more successful than I ever dreamed I'd be. Can you show me where I said I worked very hard to get where I'm at?

      As to Obama, he is indeed working very hard....at all the wrong things. He is working very hard at turning this country in a liberal socialistic European state. But no worries, the American people are above all that, and will rise up and boot his worthless a$$ from office before he can accomplish his agenda. Every generation or so we have to re-learn this lesson. Same thing happened with Carter.

        actually we've already had 8 years of corporatist govt, with zero accountability, egregious illegal cronyism at the tax payers expense and the nations future security ..... coupled with un-precedented anti-american secrecy in governance, and utter contempt for the constitution/ bill of rights.....

        with bush as a fake figure-head, the nwo neocon-nazi junta saw to it that socialism for the rich.....a.k.a privitize the profits, socialise the risk on the backs of true-blue hard working American citizens___ was the order of the day...to hell with fiscal restraint, to hell with SHARED SACRIFICE, the spirit of which lies at the heart of the u.s. constitution/ bill of rights /decl' of Independence ...... and which our founding fathers envisaged when laying the foundations of a govt OF THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE.

      • I think a more fitting analogy would be the 1923-1933 period, which is the last time the Republicans ran the economy into the ground.

        Your party managed to do the same thing to us once again, and just like last time you folks will be doomed to wander in the wilderness for a great while until you can get your heads screwed on straight.

        After the Coolidge/Hoover fiasco, America succeeded in keeping the Republicans out of the White House for almost 36 years (1933 to 1969)*, and the nation prospered greatly as a result. We're still running on the fumes from that era.

        *there was one lonely exception during that period--the moderate Dwight Eisenhower (who you folks would probably call a socialist and fascist today because of his "big government" projects that led to the interstate highway system, satellite communications, and the Internet).

        Until you guys shake the know-nothing radicals and do-nothing ivory tower ideologues loose from the Reublican party and run another common-sense centrist in Eisenhower's mold, your party is most likely doomed to irrelevance for at least another generation, if not longer.
