So The Tea Party Is Mad, Eh?

tea-partyWe are told by the Tea-Party that they are “mad and can’t take it anymore” and that the rest of us should be too! Folks, we had eight years of Bush and Cheney, but NOW they are getting mad?!

They didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

They didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

They didn’t get mad about gas prices when Bush and Cheney friends at the oil companies raised a gallon of gas price to more than $5 and posted highest profits in the history of U.S. for 8 years straight (Bush presidency).

They didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative identity was revealed.

They didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act, which allows torture and disregards personal rights for Americans, got passed.

They didn’t get mad when Bush and Cheney illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us, Iraq.

They didn’t get mad when Bush and Cheney spent over 600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war, Iraq.

They didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

They didn’t get mad when they found out about torturing people.

They didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

They didn’t get mad that Bin Laden was not caught when Bush had a chance to do so.

They didn’t get mad when they saw the horrible veterans’ conditions at Walter Reed Hospital.

They didn’t get mad when Bush let a major US city drown like a Third World country.

They didn’t get mad when Bush gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

They didn’t get mad when, using reconciliation, a trillion dollars of our tax dollars was redirected to insurance companies for Medicare Advantage, which costs over 20 percent more for basically the same services that Medicare provides.

They didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark (when during the Clinton presidency we had almost a Trillion dollar surplus), and our debt hit the thirteen trillion dollar mark.

They finally got mad when a government decided that people in America deserved the right to get treatment if they are sick and can not afford to do so.

Yes, an illegal war, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with the Tea Party. They are partying not with tea, but with sucking the blood of ordinary Americans.
