I really get tired of hearing Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz open her mouth. Every time she does, she says something stupid and irritating. I guess it’s a good thing because if this is the flake that is leading the DNC, then they deserve each other.
So today, while she “hesitated to place blame”, didn’t hesitate to call out the Tea Party for “a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility” when talking about the Tuscon shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords.
Turns out, Jared Loughner, the shooter in the case, was eventually discovered to be a mentally unstable loner with no immediate partisan agenda and a serious alcohol problem. In other words, he wasn’t motivated by the Tea Party, but by his own mental dysfunction.
So I wonder if the Dem Blonde then blames the Tea Party for Loughner’s mental health. It’s like Bush Derangement Syndrome all over again. Since it’s pretty passé to “blame-it-on-Bush”, well, now this shooting was the Tea Party’s fault.
She continued to deride the Tea Party by saying “when they disagree with you on an issue, you’re not just wrong, you’re a liar.” Well, Debbie, you are either a liar or really, REALLY stupid.
But since she’s on the topic of civility, uh, Debbie, did you happen to notice all the Occupy protests out there and the amount of “civility” that they have? Did you happen to even pay attention to how the Tea Partiers carried themselves and acted? Did you happen to compare that to the OWS people? Or has the bleach in your hair began to dry out your brain?
By the way, as a rabid parting swipe, I wonder if Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a Clinton in disguise. She’s got Chelsea’s stringy frizzy hair and Hillary’s mega-hips going. Kinda makes you wonder…she might even be Bill’s type.
The OWS drones are still at it, unfortunately. They continue to carry on the belief that they represent the people, the 99%. And the Main Stream Media continuously ignores the fact that they are doing what they blamed the Tea Party from doing. The MSM (except for FoxNews) continuously painted the Tea Party as a bunch of racist hatemongers, rioting and protesting with hate rhetoric. Yet, we continue to see over and over that the OWS crowd is doing the things that they attempt to apply to the Tea Party and guess what, the MSM glosses over it.
But out here on the very biased right-wing Rabid Conservative. we won’t let it pass. Whether it be protesters selling crack cocaine, having sex in the bushes, pushing old ladies to the pavement and sending them to the hospital, or, as seen in the photos below, defacing public and private property, whatever OWS is preaching gets drowned out in the walk-the-walk rhetoric of how they are acting. I still challenge anyone to provide any evidence that these kinds of things happened at any Tea Party rally.
The one good thing of all of this is that OWS, who probably worships Obama as the High Pontiff of Entitlement, will probably be one of the lib-crats greatest liabilities. I can’t waif for November 2012.

Wells Fargo under Assault
Chase Bank sees the same damage
Bank of America too
Whole Foods tells patrons to leave their signs outside, so that’s exactly what OWS did.
Still believe OWS is like the Tea Party?
Police brutality? Some would call that Code Enforcement.
Instead of Occupy Everything, their motto should be Deface Everything
The Tea Party actually loves the police. OWS, on the other hand, has a different view. Love the Polaroid, by the way.
Oakland Blockade – I guess these chaps didn’t make the cut for the Oakland Raiders front line, so they’re doing this now.
The opposite of Capitalism, folks, is socialism. So, if these people hate capitalism, what does that make them?
And where there is socialism, communism is soon to follow. Perhaps the lib-crats should be the “red” and the GOP goes “blue”, might be more fitting that way.
Wage slavery indeed – it’s called a paycheck you idiots, provided for hard work and contribution, something commies know very little about.
War, racism, and poverty – because Communism worked so very well in the USSR, right?
And let’s not leave out the union hacks putting in their 2¢…
Jimmy Hoffa would be so proud, right?
Teaching kids to be good little socialists – an atrocity in it’s own right; these kids have no clue what this is about – not much different than the mindless drones holding their hands. But aren’t they so cute??
Cop-hating Rapper Boots Riley adding more “class” to this “act” with his hit, “5 Million Ways to Kill a CEO”. Of course, it looks like to me Riley is taking a gander at the girl’s backside – another rapper favorite pastime. (Sir Mix-a-Lot would be proud),
Yet another racist representative has marginalized herself with silly rants about how the world is unfair to people who have melanin in their skin. Today, Rep Fredrica Wilson (D-FL) griped about how the unemployment rate was due to racism and blamed the Tea Party, calling them the enemy (and racists too).
She yammered on about how the Tea Party is singularly focused on making Obama a one-term president.
I only have one word for her: DUH!
We Tea Partiers never wanted Obama to begin with. We warned you about how he was going to sink the economy with his stupid liberal progressivism and he proved us right. We warned how he would be weak on terror and we were again proven right – even though he was never able to deliver on any sort of exit strategy for Iraq and Afghanistan, although he griped about it during the campaign. And despite his promise to close down Gitmo, well, that didn’t happen either. I guess that’s because keeping it open wasn’t such a bad idea.
So, yes, Ms. Wilson, we want Obama to go down in history as a one-term loser like Jimmy Carter. We want Obama to fail, because, like Rush said, America succeeds when Obama fails. More essentially, we just want Obama to go down.
By the way, what the crap is with her stupid looking red hat? I mean, how on earth is anyone supposed to take you seriously when you’re wearing a costume that you would wear when sitting for a photo at Glamour Shots?
You really need to fire your wardrobe advisor – or get one if you’re the one putting that get-up on.
What a moron. Good people of Florida, vote her out. Instead of answers, she provides gripes and blame. That is totally useless.
Kinda like her hat. Man she’s stupid looking.
It seems certain Democrats don’t truly believe in the Fairness Doctrine
John Kerry made an awful gaffe today with respect to his views about equal time on the airwaves. He made the statement that the media has the responsibility to not give equal time to the Tea Party, because he doesn’t believe it’s true.
Isn’t that what disagreement and discourse is all about? I think the entire Democrat party, with our President, are a bunch of socialistic progressive statists who want to divide the classes to rich and poor, wipe out the middle class, destroy the concept of property rights, and basically move us to a ruling oligarchy. And they will be the first to say that’s untrue. It’s called difference of opinion, Lurch. Not everyone thinks along the same lines you do. Get used to it.
If you remember, the so-called Fairness Doctrine attempts to force media outlets to give equal time to each side of divisive and controversial arguments. For example, if a radio station does an hour of Christian programming, it has to offer an hour of airtime for Atheist programming. If a talk program goes into anti-gay topics, it has to offer the pro-gay movement an opportunity to speak. In short, it’s the government regulating and mandating so-called "fairness".
I’ve linked up a very good write-up of the Fairness Doctrine here
Here’s an article from 2007 that talks about Lurch wanting to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine as an attack against conservative talk radio. And yet today, here he is blathering about how the media should not give the Tea Party’s views equal time.
Hey John, be sure to ask your French cousin, Brice Lalonde, for the proper meaning for the term "faux pas". Doofus.
And just to be mean, here’s a random photo op of John Kerry – perhaps one he probably would want censored. What a guy.
I’ve said it before, elections are one of those things that have consequences. But I’m not the only one who has said that. Over the course of the last four years, the Lib-crats have pontificated that 2006 has been about the “mandate of the people”. And with that power, boy howdy did they ever run with it:
So today, Nancy goes in and says, “elections should not matter as much as they do” to a group at Tufts University this week. She certainly wasn’t thinking that way in November 2006 when she gave that self-congratulatory speech, now was she?
But now, with the Tea Party firmly tearing through the Washington establishment, Nancy is missing those good ol’ days when people didn’t stand on beliefs – they just stood on what special interest would fund them at the time.
Elections are supposed to matter a lot because if people don’t like the direction of their government, they should have the power to change it. November 2010 demonstrated that, after four years of change promises made by lib-crats, which only made the problem worse by failing to pass a budget – instead, spending every waking hour pushing the socialistic Health Deform bill.
By the way, Nancy, while you may call Republicans your friends, I scarcely can think of a Republican who would openly call you their friend. You represent government that no one really wants – at best a necessary evil, at worst an intolerable one. And you’ve never been the best at anything, except for caricatures.
In closing, I give you this insta-classic video to play over and over until either you get tired of it or Nancy gets actually voted out of the House…or your computer crashes.
The Tea Party Republicans in Washington claim they’re concerned about the budget balance, but it’s a disguise! It’s not true! It’s a lie! That’s not what they want. They want — they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give them to them anyway. – Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)
I get pretty rabid out here at times. And I usually hold no quarter for liberals despite the whiny gripes of moderates and liberals who ask me to “tone it down” because they don’t want to hear the harsh rhetoric.
Of course they forget, this blog is The Rabid Conservative. But hey, I figure if I speak the way most liberals do, perhaps they’ll understand, right?
Nah, I didn’t think so either.
At least I’ve never elected to say that some Americans, even the liberal ones, didn’t deserve the freedoms and liberties that I enjoy.
So anyway, take this crumb-cake, Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey making the crazy statement that makes one wonder if he wasn’t drunk, stoned, or just completely stupid when saying. If New Jersey has the shape of a boot, then Lautenberg, based on his latest comment, is the fungus under the toenail.
So he had the audacity to say that Tea Party Republicans didn’t “deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution”.
So, who died and made you a Founding Father, you jerk? I’m sure there are tea-partiers all over the state of New Jersey who you just slighted with your off-the-wall comment, saying they don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution. They deserve them as much as you do. And I’m exercising them right now, beginning with the freedom of speech.
He went on to say, “But we’ll give them to them anyway.”
Oh, thanks be to the all-mighty Frank Lautenberg, the one who now bestows rights on us lowly Americans. Oh, as if he had any say in the matter.
What a clown. How does Gov. Christie put up with having a doofus like him in his state anyway?
I’m going to go pray to the One who bestows rights to people now, in penance for my rabid attitude another expression of my Constitutional liberty, and not just because you give me license, Frankie-boy.
Hey, Janeane Garofalo, come over here and call me a racist redneck to my face.
Turns out on The Countdown with Keith Olbermann on [P]MSNBC’, Garofalo went on a tirade about how those who went to the TEA parties throughout the nation were nothing more than Obama-hating, racist, rednecks. She told a head-nodding Olbermann how we’re all mentally dysfunctional and have no idea what the original Boston Tea Party was about.
It’s interesting that she spouted her hate-filled rhetoric on [P]MSNBC with Olbermann (a liberal hack in his own right), rather than having the guts to come over to Fox and tell Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck that they are right-wing racist rednecks. Instead, she chose the comfort of a liberal news show with a host who believes just like she does, a show that would actually have her on, like she had any credibility with her liberal nonsense.
Wednesday, I attended our local TEA party and while I did see a couple of rednecks there, I saw people of all walks of life standing next to me, all united on the subject of taxes. I saw white people, black people, hispanic, asians, old, young, poor, well-to-do, veterans, homemakers, students, professionals, transients, all sorts of people there. I saw zero evidence of racism there. Perhaps I’m blind, but when a former senator from our region, a man far darker skinned than Obama, with everyone in the crowd cheering his words, I don’t see racism.
If you want to call me a racist, fine, I’m a racist. I believe in the HUMAN race. After all, if Jesus died and bled for the sins of the human race, perhaps He believes that they are worth more then what liberals think we do. Even Janeane Garofalo.
Liberals like Garofalo are so full of hate and vitriol that they can’t see past their own darkness to understand why people would actually protest in disagreement against That One.
The one thing that I don’t get, how did Garofalo make the cut and get on 24? Does anyone like her character? She’s a terrible actor in her own right with so annoying a character that it makes me want to darn near start cursing the TV whenever she shows up.
Yes Janeane, God still loves you. But you are a still a pint-sized, tempest-in-a-teapot, doofus. And you’re a racist yourself, since you seem to keep forgetting that Obama is just as much white as he is black.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. – Amendment X, United States Constitution
The tenth amendment says very plainly:
- If a power is not explicitly granted to the Federal Government by the Constitution, it is reserved by the States and by the people.
- If a power of the Federal Government is prohibited by the States, it is reserved by the States.
The 10th Amendment is a very key amendment because by it, the states make the rules of what goes on in the states, not Washington DC. What it does is it enumerates who actually wears the pants in the US.
For example, take Alaska. Alaska has the Alaskan National Wildlife Reserve (ANWR) and they would love to bolster their economy by drilling for oil up there. But folks 5000 miles away are telling them that they can’t use the resources of their state for their own purpose. There is no provision in the Constitution telling Alaska they can’t drill for oil. If the Alaskan legislature wants to drill, they should be allowed. Washington can go pound sand.
Several states, such as Texas, South Carolina, and others have refused stimulus money because with that money, there are mandates from the Federal Government. Yet the Federal Government is trying to impose its will in saying that these states have to take the money. They do NOT! They can send that money right back to Washington and tell them what to do with their crazy regulations.
Many states have passed laws outlawing or allowing same-sex marriage. This is definitely not covered in the constitution and therefore a decision of the states. If Vermont wants gay marriage, let the voters and the state decide. If Iowa doesn’t want it, they should not be required to recognize it, even if a gay couple from Vermont comes to Iowa.
If the Dakotas want to pass laws outlawing abortion, they should be allowed to do just that. Remember, Roe v. Wade can be challenged when a state decides to answer the question of when life actually begins. (BTW – that was part of the decision back in 1973.)
Folks, we are the *United States*. That means we are a republic (not a democracy) of fifty sovereign states that have joined together to make a nation. We are one country, but we are fifty separate individual states.
We have appointed a federal government to handle matters that occur between states. The founders recognized that there would have to be a strong federal government to regulate interstate commerce, negotiate treaties on behalf of the United States, and raise a military. The Constitution clearly enumerates what the Federal Government is supposed to do. If it’s not enumerated in the constitution, it’s up to the States to decide for themselves.
If the Civil War taught us anything, it taught that states have the right to determine largely what goes on in their own borders. Washington DC has no right to impose its will upon the state.
Yet, ahead of all the Tea Parties that are going to be held tomorrow, protesting all the insane government spending that is going on in Washington, we now get a report from the Department of Homeland Security that warns of all us ‘Right Wing Radicals’ and wraps us up amongst those who would-be white supremacists and religious abortion-clinic bombing whackos, just because we’re getting sick and tired of the federal government sticking its fat nose where it doesn’t belong.
I wonder if DHS will start putting me on a watch list because I dare show that I am a patriot, a lover of the original constitution, and a protector of what the founders created, not what the so-called progressives have perverted.
Anyway, in the below video, Texas Governor Rick Perry has announced his support for HCR 50, a resolution in the Texas legislature does four things:
- Affirms Texas’ sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution
- Demands the Federal Government cease and desist any activity or mandate that is outside the scope of the constitutionally delegated powers.
- All compulsory federal legislation that directs states to comply under the threat of sanction or penalty from the federal government is prohibited and repealed
- The resolution be presented to the President Obama, Vice-President Biden, and Speaker Pelosi, as well as to the entire Texas delegation to Congress with instruction to enter it into the Congressional Record.
I’ve never lived in Texas and have only been there a few times. I’m going back in October on business. But the one thing you gotta appreciate is the Texas spirit. And I say with a hearty whoopie:
Don’t Mess With Texas!
