Republicans are fighting to extend the Bush tax cuts for the top 1%. According to the Wall Street Journal, if you make less than $300,000, you will do better under Obama's 2011 tax plan, as Obama's 2009 taxes were the lowest in 60 years. Here are the facts:I guess that's too much education.
TN Teabag candidate for Congress Lou Ann Zelenik is at it again, deleting factual comments from her Facebook page. You really can tell the level of intellect of the TN teabagger constituency by reading her supporters' comments. Their ignorance is shocking, as are their theocratic views, conspiracy theories, etc... . They are nearly 100% white and Christian, no surprise. Here are some examples:
Stacey Smith Fitzgerald: "TROLL - go away. Go enjoy your socialist government and leave us Conservatives alone you jerk"
Beth Obrien: "Maybe the the children of some of the fine folks on here will ultimately be indoctrinated into the wonderful beliefs of the Islamist among them...strap on bombs, fly planes into buildings, and mutilate women. Yeah that's the ticket! We are going to use our own constitution to destroy ourselves."
Robert Robinson: "You still haven't responded to my question from a previous thread, Yelverton... HOW MUCH are you being paid to spam this page and WHO is paying you?"Robert Robinson's page says he is a big fan of fake professional wrestling... and bacon. Professional wrestling and Nascar should be the official teabagger sports.
When quotes by Thomas Jefferson were cited about his view of religion, teabagger responded:
Joyce Diehl Sanders: "Where did you learn American history? Some one lied to you, son."
Lou Ann Zelenik cited as a historical source, David Barton, a liar and a fraud. Barton has no credentials as a legitimate historian (he holds a bachelor's degree in Christian education from Oral Roberts University). His practice of Christian nationalist history revisionism is designed to dupe his audiences into believing that the United States was founded exclusively as a Christian nation, a necessary element in getting people to vote for and support the agenda of his political cohorts. He has admitted producing quotes that are undocumented, highly questionable, and outright lies.
Yet, Lou Ann's minions love it:
Lori Jenkins: "David Barton is such an American Treasure. I'd love to spend the day with him teaching me REAL & TRUE American History."
You wouldn't have guessed it but... the above comentator went to a Christian school. Now that's indoctrination. A true believer in an unqualified fraud who tells here what she wants to believe.
That is the way teabaggers think. Soon this level of ignorance and denial may be running this state.
UPDATE: REPUBLICAN Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) has characterized the teabaggers in an article:
"poisonous, tea party-driven demagoguery that will undermine the GOP's long-term credibility ...recounting his frustrating interactions with tea party types, while noting that Republican leaders are pushing rhetoric tainted with racism, that conservative activists are dabbling in anti-Semitic conspiracy theory nonsense, and that Sarah Palin celebrates ignorance."
