    Wrong about what?



    Do you even hear yourself? "Yea, you have a study from the NYT that analyzes this exact issue, but what really matters is my own uninformed opinion based on some youtube interviews. Thats SCIENCE."
    Fair enough. I'll make this as clear as possible. If you would be so kind as to introduce me to these wealthy, educated, and articulate people who call themselves Tea Party... I would love to meet them... (if they can get the time off work)



    Is there a point to this, or are you just doing "the ol change the subject"?
    My point was there was a lot of information, not all flattering, in the stats about the tea party and the one stat you pulled is that 56% are employed. So?



    ...that you were wrong when you said:
    How was I wrong? 44% of the tea party is not working. What percentage is collecting any sort of Fed entitlements? If those collecting benefits are bitching about federal handouts; seems kinda disingenuous, wouldn't you say?


    If you're still having trouble figuring out why your statement was wrong, there's nothing that any of us can do for you.
    Well, since you haven't shown me anything to prove me wrong, I guess you're right, there is nothing more you can do.

    Don't get frustrated, and don't give up.

    I'm going to make this crystal clear for you so that you can't continue dancing around it.

    You said:

    I think a lot of the tea folk are out of work, collecting unemployment, etc.

    That's why they're always at home when the pollster calls... And at 5pm in the afternoon to watch cartoonsish characters on FNC.
    The clear implication of this is that tea party members are more likely than the average person to be out of work, which is why they would be overrepresented in polls ("always at home when the pollster calls").

    In response to your theory, I provided you with a link showing that tea party members are less likely than the general public to be out of work.

    For once, why can't you just say "You know what, I made an off-the-cuff generalization that turned out to be wrong. My bad."?

    I thought you were better then that.

    If you do come across some clips of Tea Party People saying something articulate, then please do PM me.

    Best of luck!
    What part of me saying that I've been to more than one Tea Party and what is reported in the liberal media is far from accurate do you not understand? I have witnessed, first hand, that the liberal media has it completely wrong. There are plenty of videos out there of interviews with Tea Party supporters where they are "saying something articulate". You simply have to open your eyes and watch something other than MSNBC and CNN once in a while. Just because the opinions of the Tea Partiers differ with your distorted view of what is wrong with this country doesn't make it inarticulate.

    The vast majority of Tea Partiers are not just against the policies of Obama and this Congress, they are against corruption, high taxes, outrageous spending and the disconnect that Washington has with "the people". It has less to do with Obama than it does with an out of control and invasive federal government. The anger that the Tea Party movement has isn't something that just started with Obama. It's been building for years under Clinton and Bush. The federal government has been grabbing power for years and years. The unattainable spending has been going on for years and years. Of course, the spending has reached a pace that is nothing short of flabbergasting under this administration and this Congress, so their anger is magnified, but their anger isn't something new. It just reached a point a couple of years ago where folks started getting more vocal about it and forming protests. I honestly believe that even if McCain had won in 2008, the Tea Parties would still be taking place because the federal government is still out of control and spending is still outrageous.

    What's funny is that you obviously can't find any legitimate source to back up the 300,000 ++ that's been floating around DP.

    Hey, it was a good turnout. However, based on what I've read, if I had traveled even from Baltimore to see that event, I'd been real pissed.

    At least at the old Teabagger rallies you had some interesting and funny signs to look at... 'Return to Signage' should be the theme of the next one.

    I feel sorry for the parents that drove with their kids through the night to be there. I feel more sorry for their kids.

    Still not sure what they restored or honored or even were about... Having America pray to Jesus-God for...return??



    ahh it figures you would be the mouth foamer who holds on so desparetly to vulgarity.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    To Beck's defense, Gloria Steinem deserves to be talked that way to.

    I apologise on behalf of mega, he obviously forgot that women can't handle man talk, and must be spoken to in a soft voice, avoiding the use of sharp sounding consonants, bad language, and long words.
    So follow me into the desert

    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Right, of course. Because those are the only two options, yeah? You either treat her like a Madonna or a whore.

    Men are so simplistic.

    Are you confusing the Greatness that is the Good Reverend with a Beck fan? this red herring of yours deflects from your point.
