Tea party suffers blow

Jun 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Port Clinton News Herald

At this time of the year, I do a lot of reflecting on my father and on my own blessings in the role... COLUMBUS -- Ohio's conservatives have lots of ideas on what to do with health care, and they're in agreement: The Affordable Care Act was not the way to go.

My thoughts were a little darker. I theorized King would be in with Sharpton and Jackson. How could those surrounding King have turned against everything taught if not that perhaps it was like a political campaign, Smoke and Mirrors, a means to an end.

Opportunism. I think King kept the hustlers reigned in to a large degree. His death at the hands of a white man was probably not nearly the tragedy to Jesse Jackson and his crew as they've tried to make us believe. I liken it loosely to LBJ's ascension to the presidency. Luckiest thing that ever happened to some scummy people who proceeded to cause incredible harm to society and the nation.

You may need to explain "port" to some of our posters.:)
I doubt they know what "POSH" means either?
Well, I will help them out, it means "Port Over, Starboard Home" but they will be clueless why it means one step above First Class. There is First Class and then there is POSH!

Well, over a hundred years ago it took a ship weeks to sail from England to India and they did not have air-conditioning back then so you would want to be on the shady side, PORT (left), of the ship while heading OVER to India and then be on the STARBOARD (right) side of the ship heading HOME to England. So there was Fist Class who had the Sunny side of the ship both ways while the POSH had the shady side.
Now, where did "port" and "Starboard" come from? Well until the rudder was invented they had a steering oar which was mounted of the right side. And when they docked they did not want to damage the steering board (oar)(starboard) so they would put the left side next to the dock (Port side).
Now, why are Liberals called Lefties and the Conservatives Righties? Well, in Paris France the artists, actors, poets, etc. were on the left side of the Seine River (As you headed down stream) while the bankers and businessmen where on the Right side.
That is also here "Left Bank" comes from which is a term used to describe socialists. How true is that today!

Yea, but, athletes, actors, musicians, etc earned their money whereas CEO's raped the companies they managed.

I wonder how many jobs Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc. made? I bet the CEOs of Hanes and Nike made more people employed than did Michael Jordan did. All Jordan did is got million$ for making commercials.

Why don't you set your sights, in non-partisan fashion, on the top donors to the Obama 2008 campaign? I trust you will provide in-depth leftist smear...er, um...talking points...on their corporate, consumer & political practices. You may recognize some of these "big business" names which you and your comrades regularly demonize.

Tea Putty:
A giant killer in 2010, it never came off the sidelines in the 2012 primaries—and may end up with the nominee it loves least. Now a Tea Party leader tells Patricia Murphy the movement is “dead” and “gone.”
