Now, the guessing game is over. We know beyond doubt that the Teabag movement was created out of whole cloth by astroturf groups like Dick Armey's FreedomWorks and Tim Phillips' Americans for Prosperity, with massive media help from FOX News. We see the Birther fracas — the kind of urban myth-making that should have never made it out of the pages of the National Enquirer — being openly ratified by Congressional Republicans. We've seen Armey's own professionally-produced field manual that carefully instructs conservative goon squads in the fine art of disrupting the democratic governing process — and the film of public officials being terrorized and threatened to the point where some of them required armed escorts to leave the building. We've seen Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner applauding and promoting a video of the disruptions and looking forward to "a long, hot August for Democrats in Congress."

Well, sure, but you have to understand how the flipside looks. Code Pink actually showed the way to the out-of-power Republican/Libertarians. Different influential "progressives" sent out marching orders too. They rallied their troops to show up for demonstrations all over. The thing is that each back-and-forth or power swing from the left to right and back again on the false ideological spectrum just screams let's be more intense the next time we get power or are out of power.

Actually, the very article cited is begging for those in power now to clamp down hard or else. Clamp down on the supposedly would-be fascists out of power, as if doing so isn't tyrannical.

Yes, it's very difficult to speak to people who are in a frenzy and are only seeing red. Tempers cause wars. Tempers are whipped up to rattle the spears in Mar's Temple. Words aren't defined. Facts aren't checked on purpose. Millions of little lies are the Big Lie. Both sides walk this false path. They hear what they want to hear and censor everything else.

The monied people started it all and pay to continue it. They think they can hold the tiger by its tail. The most "tame" tiger can get fed up. Then the wrath is unleashed. The power is more than the Pentagon can model or war game. The rich are slaughtered. The poor are slaughtered.

The rich think they've paid to have it all figured out now. There's no way that they haven't a handle on it all. Their system anticipates everything. Their system has a built-in contingency plan for everything imaginable except that their hirelings have limited imaginations.

I just received a one-liner comment (read the rules) by someone unwilling to capitalize his name who said I have a good imagination. Context....

What is liberty? For reasons of selfishness, the libertarians think it's capitalism. Well, some of them actually want others to think of them as Christian too. No, they aren't Christian. They are capitalists who will never get their way because it doesn't exist and can't. It isn't possible. Their gurus are fakers.

Read this linked article and the comments. "Star-spangled-bannered authoritarian brutes," by P.M. Carpenter. ( August 8, 2009.) Then visit Alex Jones' site, and see the mirror image where that side too becomes the Nazis calling the Nazis, Nazis. Socialists are Nazis are Fascists are Neocons are Libertarians are Liberals are....
