Tea Party Members are individuals. There isn't an actual political party with leaders who speak for the entire group, there is no official press release because there is no official.
Hence I act in the wishes of some of the members, and the group can't complain because there is no official voice to object. It's all so confusing, I'll call the Teabaggers, as per their request, until told otherwise, and they haven't said otherwise.
Did you tell little Tuna what her favorite color should be as well?
Are you disputing the claim that the US supplied them with MWDs? Or just ignoring it and hoping nobody notices?
Nature abhors a vacuum.
Is that why my cat hates the vacuum?
The only skinhead stabbing I could find in the UK. And they stabbed a white person.
Or were you thinking of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Stephen_Lawrence which is a 20+ year old murder, that was "suspected racial motivations" and no skinheads involved?
Both received great attention due to the unusual nature of them. One incident in 20+ years shows a level of systemic racism?
Bush ran on a platform of crushing personal freedom, then signed laws that did that. The move wasn't a surprise. It could have been predicted as well as if he ran on a platform of banning bulbs. So yes, the candidates are equals, just with different stated priorities. So how do you pick between them? You don't. Pick someone whose platform is closer to what you actually want. For 99% of the US, that was neither Bush, nor Gore.
If the US had a propaganda department, it sure isn't working.
Isn't it? The USA is one of the hardest countries to immigrate to. Yet, has one of the highest immigration rates. Why? Because so many outside the US have been propognadized. Nobody outside the US sees Detroit. Very few get to know a construction foreman in Texas well enough to hear him say "I'll hire a nigger. I wouldn't invite him to my house, he'd rob it, but I'll hire him. But those fuckin Mexicans, avoid them. They are lazy. But those Niggers, they are trained slaves." Or have met a gay person later killed for walking out of a gay bar near some homophobic people. The flaws of the US are ignored by those within in the US so well that those on the outside will never see them. So they only hear the good things, and make it a destination target. The UK is a better place for a legal immigrant, but is now harder to get in (they weren't, until about 5 years ago, but it got "full" so they switched the sign from "open" to "closed").
But the perception of the US is very high outside the US (especially in 3rd world countries, the 1st world countries have too many stories of tourists robbed or violently attacked and breaks the spell). If not for propaganda, why?
I got out. I may come back in 20-30 years, after the crash and recovery (if the recovery ever happens - if the US remains a mad-max style post apocolyptic wasteland, I'll just stay away).
But if you aren't working on leaving, then you've drunk the koolaide yourself. So well that you don't even realize you drank it. The US *was* great. But, it isn't any more. The cabal that runs the USA is so backward thinking that they think on the lines of supporting current industries, like buggy whip makers, rather than letting them fail and moving on to the next big industry.
