The party's over for whining 'patriots' (barf alert)
South Bend Tribune ^ | August 25, 2009 | Marjory Wood Crawford

Posted on 08/25/2009 3:47:00 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

I have yet to read an intelligent letter from the Tea Party "patriots" on the subject of health care reform in America.

The Tea Party patriots use slogans, appear together in mob mentality using sound bites from the Big Three — Limbaugh, Hannity and Drudge (WLS/890 AM hate radio).

Universal health care reform in America is a fact of our lives. It is going to happen and our taxes will pay for it. Our taxes pay for everything. That is how it is in a free country. That is the cost of freedom and everything else in America. Tea Partyers, get over it and become real patriots and stop whining.

I came across this letter to the editor while awaiting a flight today. CHANGE! HOPE! Bumper sticker slogans and "mob mentality" never derive from the lefties. :-)

Taking money from one group of people against their will to give to other people who have done nothing to deserve it is "freedom"?

I think it was Madison who basically said that once the citizenry realized it could vote itself benefits from the public Treasury, it was over. When much less than half of the populace pays more than half the taxes, we'll be there, and we are getting close. It makes you nostalgic for the days when voting was confined to property owners -- the modern equivalent would be net taxpayers.

I hate to say it folks, but this is what we are fighting. There is no peaceful way out of this, or at least a way that keeps the US in tact.

The communists have invaded every walk of life, including the control of the minds of your kids. You even paid for it with tuition money.

Face it, you were screwed thinking you were just being good parents. Now, your kids face a totalitarian future and no freedom.

We watch it happening. Is it too late? Maybe.

There is no good way out.

They read the bill. Unlike the politicians. The protesters are out there cite page numbers to opponents who have not read and who do not care to read the bill.

Marj is a real heavy thinker, isn’t she? “Just shut up, we’re doing it and there’s nothing you can do about it. Oh, and Jesus was a liberal.” OK, honey, whatever.

Jesus was a liberal because he healed the sick and fed the poor??

If he were a liberal he would have to start with mass theft and then force others to heal the sick, or put them on a waiting list, and then force others to feed the poor.

I included that in my letter to the editor which they won’t publish because I am out of state.

... mostly because I cannot read anything more demanding than "Time" magazine or the writing on a sh_thouse wall. But I repeat myself.

Ug and to think my Great Uncle (died on the attack on Pearl Harbor) and Grandfather fought to preserve this brand of freedom...

No that's not right, they fought to preserve the brand of freedom that America was before the Communists decided to try to take over.

Sorry, Marjory, but if you think freedom in America means tax everything and give it to those that don't do jack you've got another thing coming.

We The People are coming, and we are getting more pissed every day.

I didn’t know that Drudge had a talk show on “hate radio!”

I suspect this woman has her facts wrong.

Here is how it is in a free country: people who demand the property and services of others as a matter of “right” are recognized as potential thieves.

“I have yet to read an intelligent letter from the Tea Party “patriots”

Well, your own letter doesn’t say anything, either. How do you justify spending money we don’t have on “universal health care” when we’re running a $9 trillion dollar deficit?

This woman says be patriotic, pay taxes. Well, we do pay taxes, and I’m fed up with Democrats spending my money to buy votes, so that they can stay in office in perpetuity. I don’t believe she has the first clue about patriotism.

Sorry. Mr. Madison commented about many things that could destroy or damage irreversibly our Republic, but the two chaps who DID comment on your specific point are usually held to be Alexander Tyler and Alexis deTocqueville.

In any case, all three of them were correct, as we are now seeing. In Panavision and Technicolor.

Drudge had one a few years ago, if I remember right it was only on Sundays though, and late at night. His show ended back in Sept. 2007.

I remember it because back in the day on Sunday nights he had links to his streaming live radio show on the top of the Drudge Report site.

Zaba search shows two addresses for her.

Wonder if she voted from both of them?

"It is going to happen and our taxes will pay for it. Our taxes pay for everything. That is how it is in a free country. That is the cost of freedom..." the letter to the editor.

No, Taking money from one group of people against their will to give to other people who have done nothing to deserve it ... is SLAVERY!!! (If taking more that 10% taxes)

Top 50 % pay 95% of taxes. Top 1% pays more than the bottom 95% combined.

Your servant, sir or madam. It’s just NOT very difficult to get historical quotes correct; after all — Google and assorted similar dildoes aside — if they said it, they SAID it (or, perhaps, wrote it, depending on the particular quote).

“Suppose you were an idiot. And, suppose you were a member of Congress...but, I repeat myself.” — Samuel Clemens

LOL! Don't you just LOVE her absolute surety that this will happen? The Democrats might find a way to vote it in, but they won't have the opportunity to cement it in place before their behinds are voted OUT of Congress and quite possibly the majority in 2010.

“Our taxes pay for everything. That is how it is in a free country.”

Amazing, and sad. Hard to have a rational discussion when the words don’t mean the same thing to the various parties involved. I’m guessing that somewhere in her pea-sized brain the idea of “freedom” is shortened to “free” and then morphs into “I don’t have to pay for it free”.

I would be interested in seeing just one example of a “soundbite from DRUDGE”. Hannity, Limbaugh, etc make statements frequently which lend themselves to soundbites, but Drudge? All he does is offer a website which links to other sites on the web.
