Ok Freepers what's the Response

Posted on 02/20/2011 8:09:40 PM PST by PaulZe

I got this email from my liberal friend of mine. Before I respond I present it to my fellow Freepers for opinions on how best to respond:

Nelda Elder posted this on the Washington Post's Facebook page. She's from Kansas, and looks to be in her mid to late 50's. She uses the term "teabagger". But do remember that NOT everyone knows this can also mean a sexual act; it's not exactly a common one. I didn't know it; I'm betting she doesn't either. It's just easier to say "Teabagger" than "TeaPartier" or whatever description they're using now:

"The Teabagger gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee.

He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards.

He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised. All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now The Teabagger gets it too.

He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. The Teabagger's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.

The Teabagger takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; his bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.

The Teabagger dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air.

The Teabagger begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. The Teabagger's employer pays these standards because The Teabagger's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union.

If The Teabagger is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

It's noon time, The Teabagger needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. The Teabagger's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect The Teabagger's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression.

The Teabagger has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that The Teabagger and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

The Teabagger is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards.

He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicans would still be sitting in the dark)

He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so The Teabagger wouldn't have to.

After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show, the host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good (He doesn't tell The Teabagger that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit The Teabagger enjoys throughout his day).

The Teabagger agrees, "We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives."

Tell them that liberals are GREAT as doing things with OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY. Just give them ever greater portions of your paycheck and let them take more and more of your rights.

Tell them you don’t need a freaking liberal nanny government to tell you how to wash your hair or how to fee your children or what to listen to or anything else.

This hack is a seminar e-mailer. I have read this stupid response letter for letter in newspapers in Florida and Louisiana and seen it posted many times. A start of a response would be just that as in ‘Why are you so brain dead that you have to regurgitate something that a Democrat Party hack composed and then had disseminated by Daily Kos or some other transmission belt organization. No government did not do most or any of those things. The market place drove products in the direction of better quality....This person is a stooge and dimrat seminar mailer and that phrase should be shot back at her/him.

I was going to go line by line and point out the presumptions the loony lib makes...assuming we all use town drinking water (lots of us have wells) and that we all work for corporations that provide us with health insurance or workers compensation insurance (many of us are self-employed) or that third generation farms are dying because of the liberal’s lust for the death tax...

...but really, don’t bother. You cannot have a logical or temperate discussion with a liberal. Save yourself a lot of headache and do something productive.

This is a liberal meme. She didn’t write it and probably didn’t read all of it. I think this almost exact same thing was posted about a week ago with “conservative” instead of teabagger.

I skimmed through it. Only a lib would think people are so helpless and irresponsible without government to protect them. Today government would have kept pioneers and gold rush hunters at home because it would be considered too dangerous. Thank God people thought for themselves in 1773! Now government does it for us. They even tell us to keep screwdrivers away from our eyes. Aren’t we lucky to have government? *puke*

The liberal wakes up at noon living off of the taxes the TeaBagger pays.

The Teabagger is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country.

And tell your friend Dad lost the farm because he can't pay the property taxes and school taxes just went up again. It costs money, LOTS of it, to protect us from ourselves and help the kids underperform in school.

“The Teabagger agrees, “We don’t need those big government liberals ruining our lives.”

—Strange that they didn’t mention the Trillions of dollars of pissed away money, plummeting homes values, moral destitution, inner city crime and poverty, 19 % real unemployment, declining education standards, and future decimation of our health care system- all thanks to the various programs of those wonderful big government liberals...

When does it end? That’s the consistent problem. Liberals are unable to ever declare victory against an issue, because without fear and hypocracy, they have nothing. The safety features in the newest cars are more likely to kill the person that it is trying to save now, when you take into account new crush requirements for car roofs and the massive pillars needed to support them, making huge blind spots.

He doesn’t gain as much interest at the bank because of the hidden taxes of regulation and insurance, and as a percentage of GDP, he’s much more likely to lose money from federal theft of his investments than any bank crash.

His employer is demanding more and more work for the same pay to cover those massive pension and health requirements. If tomorrow the employer could offer him the thousands of dollars a month the company blows on insurance, he could buy a more moderate plan and have another 12k of income or retirement money.

Rather than encourage more rural electric development, it has now become a tax on the cities, hitting hardest the retirees who need to live in the dark to afford food.

Time and time again the good ideas that liberals like to crow about are destroyed because they don’t know when to stop.

Tell her that American Liberals have morphed into
neo-Marxist, and ask how she would have liked living in the now defunct Soviet Union.

You might also explain what a teabagger is, and point it out as an example of the moral degradation of America’s neo-Marxist/liberals.

It reads nicely, a classic example of one of those
“anonymous” made-to-be-circulated-on-the-Internet kinds of ready-made verbal artifacts.
Unfortunately, each and every point is self-servingly untrue, wildly distorted, and grossly exaggerated.
But all of this is by now well-known as the way modern Leftists ‘do business’:create highly debatable talking points which fudge-brained dunces love to quote as if they’re actually participating in a ‘dialogue’.
They say the same crap over and over as if it’s being said
for the VERY FIRST TIME, and by THEY THEMSELVES first and foremost, they say it with a self-satisfied smile of self-righteousness on their faces, and NONE of it ever answers
or takes into account the counter-arguments which have been out there since even BEFORE their idiotic
verbal conceits were first trotted out.
Ask him/her if she also knows about Liberal Icon FDR’s
highly critical attitude, dating from the Depression about
Public Sector unions?

That diatribe has been floating around the Internet in various forms. The author has confused "democrat" with "liberal". Once upon a time the terms were not as synonymous as they are today. Some good men and women were, in fact, democrats. The author is also confusing the term "Teabagger[sic]" with "liberal" and/or "RINO". The tea partying crowd does not identify itself per se with republicans. In fact, speaking for myself and the vast majority of tea party-ers I know, we adamantly define ourselves as "conservatives" or "independents". The GOP should be composed of tea party-ers, but it is riddled with RINOs that lack our ethical core. If you correct the terms, not everything written there is necessarily wrong. Just credit those who truly deserve the reward (old-school-democrats and republicans, but not the hippie liberals) and apply the blame where it belongs (hippie liberals and RINOs, but not the tea party-ers).

Yeah, right - the belief is that conservatives want to drink dirty water and breath filthy air. It’s crap. Here’s what liberals gave us - food police - welfare dependency - bad schools - broken families and neighborhoods. And a country that has signs all over inner city neighborhoods advertising to get YOU your Social Security Disability. Yep, they’re bankrupting the country... and have been for decades.

I have a tactic that "seems" to work. I've asked everybody who uses that term in conversation with me if they know what it means. Those that don't, I simply tell them. There's a pretty accurate explanation at -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_bag_(sexual_act)

Those that do know what it means, I ask to please tell me. Usually there are others within ear shot. Invariably they don't want to tell me, so I tell them what it means... in plain language English.

I believe it's my obligation to at least make sure they understand the accuracies of their terminology no matter how profane or base they might be.

“All of your assumptions are fraudulent. They make great talking points but are without merit. Nor, did you come up with this list. If you wish to lay claim to everything in this email, pick one, just one point. Then we will talk about that one until it is finished. Then, we will do the same to the next until you realize everything you think you know, isn’t so.”

Liberals are lazy. Don’t be lazy. Hold her to each point, one by one, and destroy her email and her pseudo-knowledge.
