One Lump or Two?


My son went to a tea party today, and snapped the above photo. I stayed home and tuned in to CNN's coverage of what Bill Maher call the Million Moron March. Apparently, the local bunch provided much more entertainment than those in Washington.

Jay said when he got there, someone handed him a flyer and a woman introduced herself and told him where he could find the materials to make himself a sign. He wisely decided not to make one, since the crowd, though small, could probably have done him some lasting damage if they had read what he had to say.

He stayed long enough to hear a woman take the microphone and urged the people to work to get Nancy Pelosi out of office. Then the man who might have been one of the organizers got up and told the crowd that they were non-partisan, but that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Oama were NOT Christians.

Then, another woman got up and condemned the state of California because they were going to (and here, she teared up) have a moment of silence for a homo-seckshual (snif)! (She was referring to Harvey Milk.) Jay had to leave at this point, because he was afraid he might laugh out loud. So far, he thought people who saw him covering his eyes would probably think he was weeping, too.

At this moment, I am gazing in disbelief at the flyer that was thrust into Jay's hand at the tea party. On one side, in a box, with letters printed in red, is an announcement about a two-day session on "How To Take Back America Training" According to the flyer, this training is to be held Sept. 25-26 in "St. Louise, MO". (And, no, that's not a typo.) Our very own Mike Huckabee is to be one of the guest speakers.

At the bottom left is the message "Let Freedom Ring" and "In God We Still Trust" and "God Bless America!" On the right side is a Bible with a hand on it. And, just in case we can't identify it, in red letters, just under the hand, are the words "The Bible".

But it was the flip side that caught my eye. It was entitled "Un-American & Unlawful White House Projects". It sets forth a bunch of lies and distortions of President Obama's programs, the same tired arguments they have been using all along.

Then, it criticizes all the "Czars" that have been appointed by President Obama. There's the Afghanistan Czar, AIDS Czar, Border Czar, Car Czar, Climate Czar, Copyright Czar, Cyberspace Czar, Drug Czar, Economic Czar, Education Czar, Energy Czar, Executive Pay Czar, Faith-Based Czar, Jobs Czar, Guantanamo Closure Czar, Health Reform Czar, Infotech Czar, Intelligence Czar, Iran Czar, Middle East Peace Czar, Non-Proliferation Czar, Persian Gulf/SE Czar, Regulatory Czar, Science Czar, Stimulus Accountability Czar, Sudan Czar, TARP Czar, Terrorism Czar, Urban Czar, War Czar and WMD and Terrorism Czar.

We have more Czars than Imperialist Russia ever dreamed of. My heavens! We have more Czars than Bubba had ways to prepare shrimp!

Finally, I noticed that this mess of a flyer was written by Phyllis Schlafley.


Stay tuned.

It's amazing, isn't it, how ignorant some people can be?

I would hope that every last one of them finds your post, but they are all probably too stupid to use a computer.

Grayquill said...

Calling others stupid might make you feel better but is it in any way useful?

Looking to the Stars said...

I continue to be amazed at the stupidity of some of these people. "Stupid is as stupid does", a very useful word to describe that which is :)

I'd like to know where these people were when Bush was prez?

Also, Salzar is from my hometown, he was a senator for our state. This man believes and supports the little people. He is in no way a czar and I resent small minded people who don't know the facts!

My gosh, won't someone put a muzzle on Phyllis Schlafley? I remember seeing way too much of her on TV during the Roe v Wade issue. She has to have the most irritating school marm way of speaking with the most rasping voice I have ever heard.

The nutcases are easy to organize because they are so easily lead and brainwashed. That doesn't say much for their intelligence.

Just happened upon your blog. I'm from Arkansas, too. Your posts are funny (and very true). I'm your new follower.

Our country is in such a messy hodge-podge I don't know which side I'm on. We have to get rid of "sides". I'm just waiting to see how everything turns out.
Got a chuckle out of Jay having to leave before he laughed out loud.

I'm jealous. Every comment has a picture. My pic. appears on every other blog, but not here.???

Linda said...

Refreshing to read your blog again. I'd about decided I was the only person who doesn't regret voting for Obama. Keep up the good work. We need your voice.

Margie and Grayquill: "Stupid" is used many times as a synonym for "ignorant", I think. I know it's a word I use too much to describe a whole host of people and things (i.e. Ouch! I stubbed my toe on that stupid chair!"

kenju: Bite your tongue! Don't wish them on me. lol

Looking to the Stars: When Bush was president, they were all basking in the glow of righteousness he exuded.

Darlene: They are like lemmings, rushing over the cliff and into the sea. Unfortunately, they seem to be surviving, not drowning.

Janie B.: Welcome to my little blog. Glad you like it. Feel free to express your opinions here.

Bikehikebabe: You're right. We shouldn't be too rigid about which "side" we are on, and just think things through.

I don't know why your pic doesn't appear with your comment.
