The Mad Tea Party

I love this video. Somewhere between hilarious and deeply, deeply depressing.

It's so incredibly depressing. I don't understand how people can be so uninformed and plain ignorant.

the tea party folks weren't all neo-xian freaks...
a lot of 'em are just pissed at the amerikan oligarchy getting re-capitalized (after their massive fuck-ups) on taxpayers backs....
Danny boy, if you are still supporting O. you are part of the problem. Things might look Pretty in this skanky damn country from your major label vantage point, but the fact is, Obamma is a made man fronting for the Fascist States of Amerika...
checklist:
Health Care: "no public option" (at Insurance Co's behest)
Military Industrial Complex: Still in Iraq/Doubling down on Afghanistan
Financial "reform": NONE (jawboning instead)

...a few more unsustainable deficit spending bones thrown to the proles (Mortgage mods (gift to BANKS, not underwater homeowners) 3rd/4th extensions of unemployment compensation, cash for clunkers (gift to auto makers & unions NOT the environment)

too much to go into in one damn comment but
Jesus Daniel, wake up. This aint Left/Right no more...it isn't about partisan politics (which is just a diversionary social illusion a la "team sports" when there is really only ONE Corporat team which is cleaning the people's clocks right now)
it's about rich/poor... the few vs. the many....

Right...

What I said was that the particular people in this video are hilarious and depressing.

Never said that things look pretty. Never said that I supported Obama's plan.
Never said that the tea party folks were all freaks.

Unfortunately you assumed all of that in your overblown response, making it painfully clear that the only one who sees things as simply left/right is you. Try not randomly jumping to conclusions and then taking off like a rocket, because when you do you just come off like the nuts in this video.

The second comment is one of the hardest things I've ever read.

Is your native language English? You make up and misspell so many words and make so many grammatical errors that it seems like you either 1) don't know English very well or 2) you have some sort of disability. Not like I'm saying there's anything wrong with that, it's just really hard to understand you.

I could easily just look over that entire mess of words and decide it's just a bunch of crazy. But I actually TRIED to understand it and realized that there is absolutely no way I can understand your point of view due to the poor quality of your speech.

Please, before you post anything else, go out and educate yourself on all the terms you've misused. Because if you don't, when you go out and try to explain this point of view of yours to others, they won't understand you. I guarantee you of that.

Okay Haylee. I am really happy for you and imma let you finish, but anonymous had one of the best crazy posts of all time.

I'm just a neo-xian freak

Reading the comments may have been even more entertaining than watching the video. But I agree, depressing on top of depressing. Unfortunately, living in Alabama, that crowd doesn't seem all to unfamiliar to me. Which depresses me even more.

Sometimes I want to move to Iceland.
