    You expect the Tea P's and/or their supporters to "use a search engine" ? If they did they may find the truth and the truth is like a Cross to Satan. Forget about it !!!!!

    We all know what the supposed purpose of the tea party movement was touted as. But we who can think for ourselves know that the tea party movement just uses the symbol of our American Revolution but no, no, and no they do not follow the spirit of the American Revolution. I like to ask them where were they when Bush II was using the credit card and mortgaged our children’s and grand children’s future ? I will say to the TP‘s what I heard a friend say when someone was throwing the bull at him “don’t pee on my leg and tell me that it is raining”.

    The Tea Partiers also claim that Pres. Obama is trying to take away all their freedoms but somehow they were nowhere to be found when Bush used The Patriot Act to tap into our cell phones and killed Habeas Corpus.

    No just pointing out the stupidity and arrogance of your comment ripping on a neighbor of yours simply because you dont agree with his politics.

    So let me answer your query " how he your neighbor?". He moved in to a house that his replacement wife bought with her own money.
    Doesn't sound stupid to me

    Who are those "liberals" who "pretend they are so much smarter than anyone else" ? Point them out so we can dispatch to Liberalaylia or maybe Sweden.
    As I said, you. An educated person like yourself should have caught that.

    You probably wish you could afford to live where I do. Look us up Cole brook Ct first White European "resident" in 1765. I still have a few bulding lots available from the farm that I subdivided. In fact I am so open minded that I even sold the land to my neighbor's wife who built the house that she lets him live in. Yeh I killed a farm isn't that liberal of me l!!!! LOL .
    LOL Ah class warfare. Let me put it to rest for you. My house is a 4 bedroom recently appraised for 127 dollars a square foot in a 3900 square foot home. I have 2 cars, a Cadillac DTS and my better drives a Lexus 430. My backyard has over 800 sq feet of Oklahoma sandstone patio with 2 fireplaces one inside and one outside and the fence is brand new and 9 feet high board on board. I have a smoker and a built in stone gas grill and 2 ponds again one inside and one outside with 2 pecan trees, two magnolias, one oak and 2 Japanese maple trees. Trust me. You would want to live here

    Your ego and your narcissism ripping on your neighbor were very telling. Next time try not to put down your neighbor simply because you don't agree with his politics.

    Oh and my ancestors arrived in Massachusetts in the 1600s

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I do not rip on my neighbor becasue he is uneducated I actually like him as a person and we go fishing. Yet he calls POTUS "the Colored Prez". I do not give a damn what type of house you live in or when your ancestors came here. I came here "off the boat " and yes I am living the American dream. I happen to understand what real Socialism and Communism and Nazism is because both of my Grandfathers were sent to SIBERIA for being land owners/ tailor shop owner, my parents survived Nazi forced labor camps and my Dad was wanted by the KGB. That is why I am mad as hell when I hear the ignorant use the labels of Socialism, Communism, and NAZISM when and where they do belong and when they do that they water away the real dangers of those - isms.

    I just threw it back at you since you took the discussion down to the level of "trailer park " I did not. I also do not care what type of cars you drive but too bad your better half does not drive an American car. lol

    My point is as above many people are attracted to the TP movement based on the initial orghaizers symbols of patriotism and the movement was joined by rcists, biggots, and yes maybe well meaning but sadly uninformed people like my neighbor.

    I am an American by choice not by accident of birth, and yes I not only understand the greatness of this country I am living it.

    There no need to debate the "messages" on those signs that the TP'S carry such as those depicting our POTUS as a NAZI, COMMIE, or Socilaist. Or maybe wew should debate those that show a noose, or maybe that sign a TP artist had saying "IF Brown diesn't do it a Br---------ing wil". Which implies violence.

    We have no need to debate the idiot they have already debated with themselves andf they lost.
