    April 5, 2011 – by Donny Shaw

    If the Congressional Black Caucus wants to pass H.R.589 and help the long-term unemployed, this is not the way to go about it:

    To The Tea Party: Go Screw Yourself

    I, and FedUpUSA, ought to sue anyone using this moniker for their so-called “political affiliation” for defamation.

    Yeah, that’s a joke.

    But so are you.

    All of you.

    Especially Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Bob Barr, and douchebag groups such as the “Tea Party Patriots.”

    Let’s look at their mission statement:

    Fiscal Responsibility
    Constitutionally Limited Government
    Free Markets

    Really? That sounds pretty good. But did you read “Free Markets”?…

    Tea Party my ass. This was nothing other than The Republican Party stealing the anger of a population that was fed up with The Republican Party’s own theft of their tax money at gunpoint to bail out the robbers of Wall Street and fraudulently redirecting it back toward electing the very people who stole all the ****ing money!

    Payback is a bitch isn’t it! No JOBS BILL introduced and no legislation to fix this economy and there wouldn’t be either, not from the 112th Congress because the Republican Tea Party wants this President to fail and let the bodies fall where they fall. They are so busy going after those that pissed them off 2 years ago that they could care less about middle America so MIDDLE AMERICA- REMEMBER THIS!

    Protest at Conn. GOP fundraiser will go on, even if Boehner doesn’t show

    Health care and labor advocates will protest outside a Connecticut Republican fundraiser tonight even if the featured speaker, U.S. House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, doesn’t show.

    Boehner is the big draw at the 33rd annual Prescott Bush Dinner at the Stamford Hilton, but Friday it was unclear if the near-government shutdown would keep him in Washington, D.C.

    “The Republican ‘path to prosperity’ is a real ‘road map to ruin’ for both low-income and middle-class people. Tell John Boehner to go back to Washington, D.C., and stop destroying what Americans have built together over the last 80 years!” was the message to supporters from the Connecticut Citizens Action Group.

    The protest and rally will be held outside the hotel from 4:30 to 6 p.m.; the dinner is scheduled to start at 5.

    At Boehner’s request, the press will be barred for the first time in the history of the dinner, according to state GOP Chairman Christopher Healy. Republican National Party Chairman Reince Priebus will be at the event.

    People have been arriving since early this morning for the protest. I’m waiting for my ride to pick me up now. We have two vans full of people going.

    I hope you choke on your lavish dinner Boehner!

  • WasMiddleClass 04/09/2011 7:54am

    Do you think we were going to let you get away with that Boehner? HA HA!

    Boehner relents, allows GOP to open Bush dinner to the press

  • WasMiddleClass 04/09/2011 3:43pm

    Most all of the media seems to have missed this story somehow, that I am sure would outrage many people.

    John Boehner made plans to to attend the annual Bush fund raising dinner in Connecticut tonight even though a shutdown of government seemed likely. He planned on attending even if a budget deal was not reached yet.

    He wanted a media blackout of the event, and got it, for the first time in the history of the event.

    This “dinner” is a major fund raising event with hundreds of the “elite” there.

    After some advocates fighting back, and a “deal” being reached on the budget, Boehner agreed to allow the media to cover it

    Many people were there protesting. All the media coverage I have found of the protest so far has only shown a couple people in a quick view.

    Even local TV stations mostly ignored the protest, as they reported Boehner will be giving a speech later on the news.

    And Connecticut is supposed to be a Democrat state?

    I can hardly wait to see what was cut in that “deal”.

    Good find Bravo2. I just watched part of it, so far.

    RT does have a lot of good information that our media ignores. You have to be careful with what you pick there though…

    I found a lot of really good stories there myself.

    You know the way we are spoken about as the “average Joe”…..or the "common man’……or the “nobodies”……

    This is the real attitude and don’t kid yourself….politics is just their chosen profession……don’t kid yourself….

    Most importantly, instead of elevating and advancing the American Dream……..a generation ago, if things were handled with the brinksmanship as they are today…..our citizenry would be outraged…

    THE WAY THEY HANDLE THINGS IS >>>>>>>>>>>>>> EMBARASSING!!!!!!!!!!!
