They're Heeere; Tea Partiers Invade Phoenix

If you're feeling a vibe in Phoenix today that's dramatically crazier more Conservative than usual, there's a reason: the Tea Partiers have arrived.

Thousands of Tea Partiers are flocking to Phoenix today for the first ever "American Policy Summit."

Sarah Palin, as we noted last week, will not be in attendance (she's attending a "snowmachine" race. Not kidding). However, there will be no shortage of far-right-wingers in the Valley for the three-day conference.

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty will deliver the conference's keynote speech, and other presidential hopefuls slated to speak at the conference include Congressman Ron Paul, and Georgia businessman Herman Cain.

And of course, no party would be a Tea Party without some local lunatics -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and former Congressman John Shadegg, will also be speaking.

According to the group, "The American Policy Summit will offer policy briefings and discussions that will hit key Tea Party themes. They will be organized around the group's core values and its 'Five Pathways to Liberty': education, politics, judicial, economics and culture."

The group's national coordinator, Mark Meckler, says "Tea Party Patriots values won the day
in November, and we are now taking steps to make sure that these values are reflected in public policy."

The Arizona Republic predicts about 2,000 Tea Partiers will attend the event, which is being held at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Allow us to translate the Republic's prediction: do yourself a favor and stay away from the Phoenix Convention Center this weekend.

Let's take a big sign out there proclaiming tea party support for the removal of the LARGEST government subsidy EVER - the limited liability clause that States (and the federal government) grants owners of stock in corporations. Let's turn capitalism back to what it was before the English Monarchy got hold of it. After all, the original tea party was protesting EXACTLY this concept - that the owners of a corporation, the East Indian Company, were totally exempt personaly from the bad actions of the managers of that corporation. Thomas Jefferson argued the same point - AGAINST corporations. That way, instead of regulations and taxpayer bailouts of industry, the owners of the stock of those corporations will be on the hook and will lose their yachts, golden parachutes and million dollar homes where the liability for corporate screwups should be - not on the backs of the taxpayers.

That message REPEAL limited liabilty for stock ownership.

Good idea, but it would never happen. We can't expect these people who profess a love of the fundamentals of capitalism to actually walk their talk! The present day Tea Party are a Disney facsimile of the real tea party participants. They don't really want substantive change in this country - they just want to provoke a religious war with the muslims so they can all go to heaven where the all KNOW that should be.

Personally I think they're a bunch of arrogant fucks who are going to ruin this country worse than the Europeans with their genocide of the native americans and slavery did.

More Tea, Mein Fuhrer ?
More Tea, Mein Fuhrer ?

More "Patriots" ?

In Arizona ?Who'd a thunk that might happen ? But, hey, you just can't do Nazi without AZ.Let's see now... "Five Pathways to Liberty"EDUCATION: Teach 'em how to be unhappy with anyone who is different than they are..POLITICS: Encourage 'em to pass anti-Constitutional legislation based on fear, panic, and erroneous rumor.JUDICIAL: Show 'em that in any judicial contest, it is not so much what the facts are but how well the evidence is manipulated. And, of course, lie whenever possible.ECONOMICS: Learn how to grossly overstate the need for any mindless pet project that will benefit the common good (themselves). Mismanage whatever tax funds are provided for the project, which will invariably overrun its budget by oodles of dollars. Remember to blame someone - anyone - else for their own incompetence and frauds. Try your hardest to discourage industry from relocating here by drafting stupid legislation that will get national press. Practice nepotism. Raise taxes on a monthly basis. And, of course, lie whenever possible.CULTURE: Pre-emptively blame someone else for what you've accidentally or deliberately screwed up before the newspapers get hold of the story. When times get tough, start lying your way out of trouble immediately. Create a target group to blame any and all social problems on, regardless of how lame, bizarre, or childish you reasoning for doing so is. Set up lemonade stands down by the borderline for the thirsty vigilantes out there. Draft State legislation for the really important stuff such like abolishing MLK day or what is the best firearm to use as the official "State Gun".And Sarah Palin didn't want to photo-op for this. The hell's she thinking ???

I wonder if the Tea Baggers will get confused and attend the UFO conference, which is also being held at the Convention Center. They will hear about "aliens" and conspiracy theories and be happy though.
