    The evolution of the word 'tea bagger' - The Week

    The grassroots movement didn't always consider "tea bagger" a slur: Early Tea Partiers innocently embraced the term until they discovered its vulgar connotations (see also the 1998 John Waters movie Pecker). In a twist, some conservatives have recently advocated that the word be reclaimed. Here's a look at the evolution of the insult:

    Feb. 27, 2009
    At the first anti-stimulus "New American Tea Party" rally in Washington D.C., a protestor carries a sign reading "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems before they Tea Bag You!!" The Washington Independent's David Weigel calls it "the best sign I saw."

    Pray tell: WHO owns the property in question? This is not an instance of "Eminent Domain" and if you think it does apply, you are truly clueless about the definition of the term.

    There are so many Cons get away with, like TEAtard.
    I'll play their game whereever they'd like.
    Are their poor wittle feelings hurt after dishing it out for so long at the Halfrican American POTUS?

    I believe the tremendous trio, Lincoln--T. Roosevelt--Eisenhower, were quite adept at eminent domain.
    So are school systems, run by Red BOEs in Red population areas.

    Calm down there, Trotsky. All I said is that ED is an egregious property-based violation.

    In this case, the government "owns", but they are in contractual relations - which means that the squatter has rights that are clearly being violated here.

    that is your opinion - and nothing more - unless you have a copy of the lease agreement before you as you type (which I doubt)

    I find it rather interesting that Obama stationed more people and invested more resources to guard the WWII memorial in D.C. than he did for the American embassy in Benghazi.

    I find it interesting that you're regurgitating Fox News talking points right on schedule.

    Clearly without thinking about them.
