    Yes...the Tea Party...that evil tea Party (and for anyone that wants to play...just who IS this evil entity? How many congressman? Total?) is opposed to the federal government running up another 6 trillion in 2 years. And that of course equates to racism...because the dems cant use their one tried and true vote getting ploy...mo money mo money mo money.

    its a gwanna get ugly mahn fo sho! With ****heads fanning the flames of racism. I will be stunned if we dont have a London style riot before the election.

My objection isn't to the content of your points, it's to your tactic of using me to leverage these points into the discussion. The points should stand alone. You don't need to mischaracterize what I've written in order to make your points. Time and time again you accuse me of writing something that I have not written and then you use that occasion to bring up a point you want to make. Just make the points on their own.
    I'm fine with that, RD, but I have to ask if you are willing to do the same?

    Because the very words you've written above are ones I can easily return back to you verbatim and they would be just as accurate. So do we have a deal that neither of us will do this again, and if one of us does so inadvertently because of a miscommunication on one of our parts, the other can simply mention that it's happening and ask what we need to clarify.

    The best part about that whole bit is none of it makes any sense.

    Having seen many of the obviously racist signs and shirts at tea party events, why would the Congressman have reason to think otherwise about some of its more ardent zealots?
    Care to post some examples?

    I'm betting, you can't.

    In principle I'm fine with the proposal but if you're setting out to propose a Entente Cordiale then you shouldn't spit in my face as you make the offer. You've been trying to return back to me my writing throughout this whole episode and what you've been doing is demonstrating your own lack of comprehension.

    I'm completely aware of how we ALL can write something that we don't intend to write as we quickly dash off responses, so when I'm guilty of doing that I'll own up to it and make an attempt to clarify what it was that I actually meant to write. If you had shown me any errors that I had committed that fell into that category the flavor of our discussion would have been different and I would have corrected my position. See above regarding my error in jumping to a conclusion by not reading a link that was presented. My error and I own up to it. What I won't do is own up to errors that I haven't made, even if it means continuing this discussion further. I won't apologize for something I didn't write.

    I am by no means aligning myself with Carson nor claim that the Tea Party is inherently racist.

    But to try to claim that these signs aren't based on race is pretty nonsensical.

    It's a shame that a few choice individuals give an otherwise strictly Bible-thumping, homophobic group a bad name.

    rather than me spoon feed you like a baby in a high chair, you can see much much more than I can post here.

    Just google RACIST TEA PARTY SIGNS, and when you get the hits, click on Images and you will see a flood of them.

    No racism as far as I can see.

    Bush was compared to a monkey over and over. Racism is where it's O.K. to do something to someone but not the exact same thing to someone else simply based upon their color.

    Do you not understand that the end racism we need to treat everyone exactly the same?
