As further proof that this country is chock-a-block with idiots and morons - not to mention Limbots who are so removed from reality they will continue to spit on the very ideas designed to help them recover from the economic swamp created by eight years of Republican "leadership," I offer as evidence the newest right-wing-media-inspired-insanity, the "Tea Party."

In cities across this sad, economically shattered country people are herding together to protest, what? The Financial Masters of the Universe -- predators, actually -- who got the nation and the entire world into this morass? No, no, no. Okay, the Republican Party (now, Limbot Party) whose policies blew to pieces eight years of Clintonian economics that -- say what you will about the man -- resulted in federal budget surpluses as far into the future as one wanted to peer and a resulting steady decline in the debt owed by us to the rest of the world? Be serious.

Well, then, are they gathering in outraged clusters and clumps to scream against the paucity of President Obama's rescue programs - that he has not proposed enough assistance to working-class Americans who have been declared "junk" by the elites who got us into this? Surely, you jest.

No, the roiling crowds are collecting themselves in dozens of cities around the nation to demand that Congress repeal, repeal! the $787 billion stimulus because it is . . . hold your scream . . . because it is . . . here it comes . . . because it is . . . ready? . . . because it is "wasteful government spending!!!!!!"

EEEeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiaaaaaaaaaaaeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee . . . !!!!!!

The latest economic black hole to experience this insane sh*t is Cincinnati, Ohio -- a city that has watched its population shrink steadily for the past 40+ years as it eats alive whatever is left of its civic pride with repeated anti-Black race riots -- where over the weekend thousands showed up for a rally of morons and jack-legs at Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati.

According to the soon-to-die daily newspaper, the Cincinnati Enquirer, one of the protestors, Dawna Frost, had a simple message for anyone who glanced her way : “I live off what I make. Government needs to live on what they already take."

According to the Enquirer, the Mason resident was one of thousands who showed up Sunday at Fountain Square for the Cincinnati Tea Party, a grass-roots effort designed to show disapproval for “wasteful government spending.” The group wants Congress to repeal the $787 billion stimulus package that President Barack Obama has championed as a way to create jobs and give the economy a boost. “The thought of all this spending makes me angry,” Frost said . “I’m tired of being angry.”

OMFG! Dawna's angry! And, she's tired of being angry! You suppose she'll soon be tired of being hungry? Jobless? Homeless? Without health insurance? Naw. Not Dawna. Because she knows, knows what the problem really is. It's that goddam Obama trying to save her sad, unappreciative ass. That's the problem. And how does she know this? Because Rush Limbaugh (an honest man, a decent man, a working-class person just -- gag -- like her) tells her it is so. The Enquirer goes on...
Other protesters wore Revolutionary-era costumes, sported “Got Tea?” shirts and raised signs with messages like, “Give us Liberty, not debt” and “No more bailouts.” “There is a movement going on in this country,” said former U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot. “You can see it here today.” Sean Lynch of Colerain Township brought his children . His 8-year-old, Isabel, held a “Stop spending my allowance” sign, and 5-year-old Kate raised one that read “Stay out of my piggy bank.”
Ah, Kate. Dear little Kate. And Isabel . . . A whole new generation being conditioned to deny reality, surrounded by chanting Limbots (their own parents!!!) at Fountain Square. I feel dizzy. Let me lie down a moment . . . someone get me a glass of water. Please.
Cincinnati police said unofficially that about 4,000 protesters showed up Sunday, less than the 6,000-plus people lead organizer Mike Wilson had projected. “The American people are outraged. All you have to do is look around,” said Dave Kern, a Liberty Township trustee . Kern was one of two trustees who made a political statement last month by voting against asking for stimulus money to build a new firehouse and township hall.
Firehouse? Township Hall? We don't need no stinking firehouse and township hall!!!  We want our houses to burn to the ground! We want ashes! We want destruction! We want to hold our township meetings in the mud! Because Rush will come and save us!!!! The Democrats are evillllllll . . . Rush is our savior!!!! Rush! Rush! Rush!
Before the two-hour rally ended, dozens of people had lined up to buy an “Obamacard,” a novelty credit card that belongs to “Neda Bailout”  (Get it? Is that not an absolute knee-slapper? Neda Bailout! Jesus Bleeding Christ!) and is designed to “spread the wealth.” “I figured what better place to be than here,” said Ken Raber of Beavercreek, Ohio, as he gave a customer change for the $1 card. Sporting straw hats with tea bags around the brims, Jena Russo, 19, (Run, Jena! Run!  Run away! He's not your dad!) and her dad, Dave, said they drove from their Bridgetown home to make a statement. “I just think government is getting too big, too out of control. There is no more ‘We the people,” Dave Russo said. Five-year-old Kaylee McChesney posed for pictures. Her tongue-in-cheek “Where’s my free pony?” sign attracted lots of attention.
Where's your pony, Kaylee? Awww . . . sweetie . . . eventually it will be supper.
