I have heard just about enough from the Tea Party, the Tea Baggers, the maroons, whatever you want to call them. What country do we live in and worse, what year is this? When I think back to when the United States was truly, beautifully motivated for change, back in the late 1960's, when our message was Women's Rights, Black Power, Student's Rights, Stop The War, Peace Now, Flower Power, Peace, Love and Woodstock, it makes me sad at the rhetoric we hear now from crowds. Many of these Tea Baggers can barely string together a coherent sentence and worse, don't really know what they are mad at. The current movement is named after the Boston Tea Party, a rebellion against higher taxes, while these zealots are living under an improved tax code, thanks to Barack Obama, who they otherwise equate with Adolf Hitler. That alone is enough to make me want to stuff tea bags in every one of their mouths to keep them quiet. My mother survived the concentration camps and I know too well from her stories about the horrors that Hitler imposed on people. Not just Jews, but also gay people, clergy, Russians, you name it. Atrocity was his middle name, no one was safe. To bring Hitler into this equation, well, don't get me started because if anyone is inciting riots, similar to what Hitler did in the 1930's, it is blithering bimbos like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Glenn Beck. These self-appointed mouth pieces are leading these nincompoops around chanting asinine blather. Where is all the outrage, people?
The silence is deafening from all the women, the blacks, students, peaceniks, and music lovers from days of yore. Before they became Baby Boomers, they impacted the world. Now they are sitting quietly, yelling at their investment brokers. Where is the outrage against all the other wrong doings that plague our politics and don't even get me started on the Church? Where is everybody? The SEC were downloading porn while Rome was burning? No outrage? Goldman Sachs and the other Wall Street hoodlums robbed the people blind...yet no outrage? Parents of the thousands of molested children by deviant priests took their little payola and remained silent? Where is the outrage? Where is the call to action from the people to line the streets and say, "Enough Is Enough!" Who are we as a nation these days? Pacifists? This new "movement" of Democrats and Republicans calling themselves independents is such a bunch of hooey. This is not an independent movement at all? There is no real independent voice to lead them. So call them independent all you want, but this "movement" of voters becoming independents is not that impressive. It just shows how yellow they really are. Talk about flip-floppers. They go which ever way the wind blows. That my dears, is not a movement, rather, it is really scary. People side with whoever sounds the loudest like they have the answer. And clearly nobody does...except maybe Barack Obama. But hell no, he is too black for these Cabbage Patch Dolls. So who comes into power now? Scary enough, Fox News...the voice of the people. Because the silent majority is too freaked out about money to stand up to these silly Tea Baggers.
