Like this, Turbo?

http://www.ipsnews.net/2014/06/in-latest-republican-split-tea-party-takes-on-export-import-bank/

And one of your friends is still active (although we defeated his reelection!)

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1173) 1 month ago

The fact that Americans get more upset with the people they dont vote for, as opposed to the ones they do who then blatantly disrespect them repeatedly afterwards, is pretty ironic.

The land of democracy has no ability to control the people they vote for, instead each side blaming the other for 4 years straight while their own walks all over their face.

Personally I could care less about tea people, Ive never put any faith in them.

Who do you put your faith in? Which political group is trampling all over your rights, your income and your future?

[-] 2 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

I focus on the issues regarding politicians, and I put my "faith"? in the people.

The political group that the "people" are fighting are the corporatist, oligarchs who we have allowed to capture our government by being brainwashed into apathy.

Wanna continue your 'apathy brainwashing'?

[-] 3 points by turbocharger (1173) 1 month ago

Out of all the options and aspects of managing a society/community/area, electing politicians and crossing one's fingers is one of the most apathetic by far.

Electing them and then attempting to constantly harass them in hopes they don't screw us over, desperately trying to get them to do even the simplest things like not allowing poisonous chemicals to be injected into the ground, into the food and into the air, will get you exactly what we have- playing second fiddle in a top down power structure, pleading for someone or anyone to please do what is right.

There are a lot of ways to manage a society. Centralized representative power is one of the worst, and leads to people being so disenfranchised that they literally have no idea what is going on.

[-] -1 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

I didn't say "cross ones fingers" "hopes they don't screw us over".

I reject that strategy & obviously do not submit to your once again dishonest description of what I support.

You're once again trying to attach a falsehood as my position because you cannot argue your position honestly.

Same trick.

Perhaps you should just say you don't support competition for private banksters & government union jobs.

You're allowed. (just wrong)

[-] 3 points by turbocharger (1173) 1 month ago

You don't have to say it, thats what that is. If you were saying it, then you wouldn't be endorsing it, so there ya go. "Pressuring politicians" instead of simply doing it yourself is the essence of apathy when compared to the work itself.

Doing nothing and "pressuring politicians" are much closer in terms of the work involved than the extreme opposite end, the exact opposite of apathy, which is Do it Ourselves. That type of governance is something that is not even considered, we have slid so far.

[-] 0 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

Pressuring politicians, protest, direct action, voting, boycotts, occupations, etc is not doing nothing, or hoping, or crossing fingers.

Your definition is ridiculous, I reject it.

In fact all these actions represent the end of apathy & the beginnings of involvement by the people in this effort to take our government back from the right wing libertarian extremist oligarchs who have taken it.

"type of governance"????? We just gotta take our government back from the oligarchs!!

We will evolve to direct democracy in due course.

[-] 3 points by turbocharger (1173) 1 month ago

Boycotts are an example of actual self governance, as people are aware of their role in their communities, that is correct. Being aware of what one is doing with the equity of their work is crucial, something we are currently very bad at.

The rest is crossing fingers after it is finished, as you are hoping that one action leads to another, the main blocking point being the middle man (the politician). I'm not saying its worthless, as you are right, it gets people involved. But the amount of effort in doing so is nothing compared to the amount of effort needed usually to manage the desired end result.

Just look at occupy. What was the most work? Protesting or managing the actual occupation and keeping things moving? Clearly the latter.

I specifically separated doing nothing from "pressuring politicians" in hopes of avoiding any reply that would attempt to lump them together, as they are clearly separate.

But as usual, it all gets lumped together regardless.

[-] 0 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

Well you do not get to define apathy, involvement, or doing nothing for other people, nor do you get to characterize others positions.

Pressuring politicians, is but one small aspect of the involvement, action we are in the midst of.

We have had some success, but our momentum is only growing.

We must see to it that the "we're in this together" philosophy succeeds and the "you're on your own" mentality is rejected.

They are a bunch of die-hard conservative right wing wackos who refuse to compromise on anything. They will never be taken seriously by at least 1/2 of the people but they do have some influence on the other 1/2. They also, no doubt whatsoever, get people killed with their outrageous 'fear the government', 'Democrats hate the troops', 'Socialism is upon us', 'coming to get our guns' CRAP. I don't think they are necessarily bad people but they certainly are FXXXXXX STUPID. At least when it comes to politics. I would literally prefer flipping a coin on every issue then to vote any of those wackos into high office.

[-] 2 points by 99nproud (2328) 2 months ago

Wackos should be voted out of course we agree on that.

Regardless of parties, we must vote on the issues and pressure all pols to submit to our will rather than their paymasters.

Of course our effort to correct the unfair election/campaign laws must continue to grow.

Don't be discouraged. Dwell on the goal. Be aware of the obstacles against us but we can't let difficulty paralyze us.

Stay strong, the wackos (oligarch puppets) will be defeated.

And encourage the wacko infighting:

A third party would be fantastic just as long as it were truly a 'third' (or fourth). Not just an extreme sect of one or the other. After all, look at the Tea Party. They are basically, just Republicans on steroids.

Overturning cit united, public financing of campaigns (as well as other items) are critical goals we are still fighting for.

Tea party/repubs are cannibalizing themselves. It's natural, cyclical, even evolutionary.

Give 'em enough rope, and keep a good hold of that rope and all will progress as it should.

Why have you become obsessed with boosting a post whose headline suggests the biggest gain of OWS is that two tea nuts lost an election?

You;ve been boosting this thing incessantly for months, mostly with links that have nothing to do with the topic on hand.

[-] 1 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

I am not obsessed. Just determined.

(It clearly states "tea Party defeat". The 2 leaders (still!) defeat illustrates the extremist tea party defeat, and represents success for progressive agenda.

Does that help you understand?

[-] 2 points by turbocharger (1173) 1 month ago

Theres 23 postings of you talking to yourself on this, in just the last month.

So once a day you log onto this account, and find your old post, and then talk to yourself? That is quite a determined spirit, I will give you that. I think the headline makes the whole thing look a bit amateur, like ows actually humors this election nonsense, but thats imo.

[-] 2 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

How "the headline" "looks" to you is not relevant.

And as I recall Demint retired, no election involved.

What about Army?

Clearly we defeated those extremist tea partiers with street action unrelated to elections.

Why do you keep bringing up elections/partisanship.?

[-] 2 points by 99nproud (2328) 1 month ago

Posting important info on our efforts is not "talking to myself".

Does that personal attack reflect the weakness of your position on the substance of the post.?

elections are just one aspect of our fight. These 2 no longer hold office but still represent a threat to progressive efforts.

And I do not speak for Occupy. Do you?

How is this interest rate determined? We trust that the banking system is setting today’s rate based on its best guess about the future worth of the money. And we assume that guess is based, in turn, on the cumulative market predictions of countless lenders and borrowers all over the world about the future supply and demand for the dough.

But suppose our assumption is wrong. Suppose the bankers are manipulating the interest rate so they can place bets with the money you lend or repay them – bets that will pay off big for them because they have inside information on what the market is really predicting, which they’re not sharing with you.

That would be a mammoth violation of public trust. And it would amount to a rip-off of almost cosmic proportion – trillions of dollars that you and I and other average people would otherwise have received or saved on our lending and borrowing that have been going instead to the bankers. It would make the other abuses of trust we’ve witnessed look like child’s play by comparison.

http://current.com/GetCurrent ….

This is insider trading on a gigantic scale. It makes the bankers winners and the rest of us – whose money they’ve used to make their bets – losers and chumps.

I like healthcare. My initial argument when Obama first brought up this idea was that costs needed to go down first. I believed Obama, trying to impliment universal health care with the current system, was building upon the debt without providing adequate universal care. I wished Obama first tried to lower health care costs, making each health care dollar go further, then tried to pass ACA a few years later. I love women; I am married to one. When we are mired in a trilion dollar budget deficit, what do we cut from what department to fund a museum in a society where the role of women in history is well known; in a society where the opportunities for men and women are the same and there are ample examples, today, of successful women?

The cost of a museum is trivial, & insignificant, Our women are well worth it I won't dignify your opposition with any more of a response on that.

The ACA (Obamacare) will cut healthcare costs. However I would agree much more cost reduction must occur. I submit WE must agitate all pols for just that goal!

Certainly we will have lower costs if we all agitate our respective states to implement a public option (as Obamacare allows) like VT & Oregon are doing.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/post/is-the-public-option-dead-not-quite/2012/01/13/gIQADi70wP_blog.html

Demints been threatening to "primary" any repub who would compromise on the fiscal cliff wealthy tax cuts, Repub leadership smacked demint down, demint decided he could work against moderate repubs outside.

He's a right wing wacko extremist. Good riddance. The greatest threat he presents is to the moderate republicans. They reap what they've sown. LOL

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Speak for yourself. I think he ssaw the weakness of the tea party in the senate. He did cause the repubs to lose at least 2 senate seats (Akin, Mourdock).

And I'm sure he's been getting the cold shoulder the last few weeks as one repub after the other backs away from the extremist Norquist, and defending tax cuts for millionaires & billionaires.

I understand he threatened primary fights against any who dared such positions and they laughed in his face.

[-] 0 points by RedDragon (-161) 1 year ago

You're too close to the fire; step away from the fire.

Do you want to hear what baseline Conservatives have been saying for well over thirty years now? They've been saying we MUST raise Federal taxes; can you guess who they want to tax? That's right - they want to tax the rich and all those corporations which for years and years have paid either virtually nothing or absolutely zero. The cliff is actually mighty attractive to both sides, don'tcha think?

Well, except the Re-pubs who are always willing to cut a deal to stay in power. Their fear, of course, is that all those lobbying dollars will go the Dems.

The problem, as well all know, is that none of those in Congress, of any denomination, is willing to raise taxes high enough.

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

He only poses a threat to the republican party.

He recently threatened to mount primary challenges to repubs willing to compromise on taxes.

Repub leadership slapped him down, And the little sore loser, little child quit!

LOL. But he remains committed to challenging repubs in the primaries with extremists, & I welcome his efforts. He's the gift the keeps on giving.

LMFAO

aAHhahahahaha you are so deluded - he is going off to join the other block heads at the Heritage foundation - where I suppose he will try to update school books ( among doing other things ) to say that the dinosaurs died off due to over consumption by people.

Now you are talking to your self - as you have absolutely nothing of substance or value to offer - though you are kinda funny - but that is just sad really - cause you can't help how you were raised.

extremist Tea party------------------------------ That is way too funny, The Tea Party never had one arrest like the numerous ones the ows loons have had. Ows gatherings only amounted to, numerous rapes, theft, violence, arrest, disgusting filth, and a occasional murder or two

To VQuack "the isolated incidents of violent crime" to not represent OWS positions, but the NON EXISTENT incidents of violent crime DO represent the Tea Party's "extreme" nature! He's a man of logic and reason after all.

He will also gleefully misrepresent the Tea Party and their positions but will scream to high heavens if someone calls OWS a bunch of unwashed, hippies without jobs or accountability. He's a man of consistency and fairness after all.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

The extremist Tea party I refer to is the positions they take.

Anti universal healthcare, anti safety net, pro medicare voucherization, pro SS privatization, and so forth as well as the wacky positions.

Y'know the magic uterus wing, and the "earth is only 10k years old" wing.

Occupy stand for the 99%, Tea party is a koch bros created astro turf org that pushes extremist libertarian dogma.

[+] -4 points by BetsyRoss (-744) 1 year ago

Thanks for proving that you believe that "isolated incidents" of stupidity represent all Tea Party positions. Logic and reason there again buddy.

Using the exact same methodology and criteria I can state that Occupy is a Soros created and funded astro turf org that pushes extremist, socialist dogma.

You throw a fit if you THINK I'm "trying to speak for you"-but have no problem at all PROMOTING a group that PRESUMES to SPEAK for 99% of this country. Hypocrite.

I ain't pitched no fit, just asked you not to speak for me. I do not, nor do I pretend to speak for anyone but myself!

I do not believe these violent incidents represent all tea party positions, never said it, never would. I linked these violent incidents because you and your friend above were falsely claiming the tea party was never violent/or arrested.

I simply state again.

The OWS extremist positions are in support of progressive change that benefits the 99%.

Tea party extremist positions are in support of conservative policies that benefit the 1% oligarchs.
