Could this be the reason bozobama jumped on board JIVE TURKEY TAXI 1 and took off for Minn to a group of 3-400 o-bot's, or did he get a call from franken telling him he needed a diaper change after seeing the gathering storm in DC.

Check out what the dem's are using at town halls now!


Posted by: Bill at September 12, 2009 6:35 PM

Seems like I read somewhere - maybe on FOX - that Obama "was unaware of a demonstration in DC or who organized it".

He is "unaware', alright.

The Kenyan will be a one-term wonder. We can only hope he doesn't completely destroy us before 2012.

Posted by: Jimbo at September 12, 2009 6:42 PM

thanks Bill...

Just goes to show how desperate the chickshit dems really are. They would injure their own constituents.

I dare them to use this contraption!!!

Posted by: Dave at September 12, 2009 6:46 PM

From the New York Slimes:

"But as they sang verse after verse of patriotic hymns like “God Bless America,” sharp words of profane and political criticism were aimed at Mr. Obama and Congress."

Emphasis mine.

The Slimes did not elaborate on what the "profanities" may have been. No doubt, to them, the act of protesting the Thief is in itself "profane".

Posted by: Jimbo at September 12, 2009 6:54 PM

Fantabulous effort, VH, posting all these great Tea Party/March on DC pix! We WILL be heard!

Posted by: The MaryHunter at September 12, 2009 7:25 PM

Gosh, is reporting that only "thousands" showed up to protest.

Should I believe the ANTI-WHITE LEFTIST MEDIA?

Posted by: 1600s at September 12, 2009 7:41 PM

Moonbattery tops em all once again!

Posted by: 3bus at September 12, 2009 8:03 PM

I had read from somebody that was at Obozos inaugeration and the 9/12 event and he said that it seemed more people were at the 9/12 event. So if there were 4 million to see Dumb-Dumb read his teleprompter then maybe 5 million turned out today. If the # is more of 2 million thats a shit load of pissed off people.

I really need to get me a Gadsden flag.

And I'm also wondering where are all the lib trolls went?

Posted by: funkendunkel at September 12, 2009 8:48 PM

NO congress does NOT hear you!
Its the weekend!
Theres no one in town!!!
This is NOT on ANY major news channel
This is really a joke, right?
If you want to be heard try doing this during the week when someone is in town.

Posted by: seanLA at September 12, 2009 9:51 PM

The lib trolls are home, licking their wounds. Their saviour had to flee town in order to keep his darling racist wife and bigot-raised children from any harm. In the meantime, he will be totally oblivious to anything that might have happened in DC because he wasn't there. So, I guess it all doesn't matter, does it?

Tea Parties? What Tea Parties?

BHO, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN...absolutely no peripheral vision.

Posted by: shootersgrandma at September 12, 2009 9:56 PM

Sorry, seanLA, but most of the protestors probably have something else going during the week. It's called a "job." Depending on which sub-species of liberal you are, you may or may not have heard of such a thing.

Posted by: PabloD at September 12, 2009 9:57 PM

Watched it on TV day and I was SO PROUD of all the people who went out and spoke for so many of us! It was just terrific to see!

Posted by: Janie at September 12, 2009 10:05 PM

Hey shootersgrandma,
not a liberal at all and gainfully employed, but the sad fact is, most people have no/will have no awareness of todays events.
I knew all this socialism government take over was coming and I will never forgive McCain and the republican party for NOT calling them out when they had the chance, during the elections they should have attacked obama with all the facts, instead they deided to bend over and bicker amongst themselves, now look what we have? The USA is going to change in a big way and you/we have no say. Within a few years this site will be banned and this conversation will be erased.
Thanks for the votes

Posted by: SeanLA at September 12, 2009 11:05 PM

The people who count know.

The people who vote know.

The people who count, and who vote (only once) now know a person who calls itself SeanLA is a worthless dipshit.

You say "not a liberal at all" I say YOU LIE!

Go to hell.

Who gives a shit if the Prez is black?

Posted by: Anonymous at September 13, 2009 12:29 AM

Thanks for the great shot. I could not find anything other than ground level pictures so it was hard to tell how many people were there. I am so damn proud of those people who attended. They paid their own way to get there, not like the Acorn crowd. The lib/dems have tried to ignore, ridicule, demean, and marginalize this movement from day one. I cannot WAIT for 2010! And for those of you who went out of your way to attend the event, thank you.

Obama’s ACORN: The Early DaysPublished in September 13th, 2009 | EditPosted by Berlet98 in ABORTION, AMERICAN CULTURE TODAY, MEDIA, OBAMA, POLITICS, obamacareMighty oaks naturally grow from tiny acorns and mighty empires can grow from little acorns as well. Those oaks may be mighty and those little acorns can foretell the disintegration of the empires they supplant.

The empire in immediate question is the Obamian Empire which was largely founded on the group known as ACORN, the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now. ACORN’s pretentious name is actually a euphemism for an organization dedicated to destroying the American way of life as we have long known it.

Hyperbole? Read on.

Its website grandiosly declares its reputed aims: “The Real ACORN [as opposed to the false ACORN?] is a showcase for ACORN’s consistent presence as a voice for working families since 1970. It is a hub for ACORN members, leaders, and the general public to learn more about the dynamic work the organization is undertaking to win victories on issues like living wage jobs, affordable housing, health care, education, and confronting the global financial crisis.”

Grand, indeed. Showcase, indeed. Dynamic, indeed. Those adjectives only apply if one considers sedition, lies, fraud, and other criminal activities to be grand, dynamic, showcases.

Whoever wrote that ACORN blurb had either a great sense of humor or possessed a diabolic ability to malign and distort the truth.

It’s how ACORN has gone about achieving those aims that has repeatedly gotten the group into the hot waters of election fraud and voter misrepresentations, and into various criminal and civil courts in some 13 states.

In brief, ACORN stops at nothing to effect the changes in America that candidate Obama preached in very general, vague terminology. ACORN was and is Obama’s primary instrument of specificity, a specificity that reveals more about our president than he has ever revealed about himself.

Obama has had a virtual love affair with ACORN literally for decades. His reward for his romantic efforts in that affair was the presidency of the United States. Miss ACORN’s reward has been awards of Spitzer-like payments of hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding over the course of the liaison.

The only ones really screwed in the Obama-ACORN relationship have been those self-same taxpayers unless, that is, they were direct financial beneficiaries of the liaison in a sick sort of menage a trois with Obama and Miss ACORN.

Beneficiaries of ACORN, i.e. of taxpayer monies, include this sampling: AARP, to finance more abortion efforts; the National Urban League, to agitate for Obamacare; La Raza, to aid Mexicans in re-claiming American lands; Chicago’s Project Vote, organized by Obama to sway elections; and ACORN’s own mortgage company, to allow it to work to bring down the banking industry by pressuring banks to lend to unqualified, sub-prime mortgagors:

After graduating from Columbia, Obama fished around for a venue in which he would be accepted and which would afford him the opportunity to properly exercise and execute his father’s Marxist precepts he had learned from his mother and which had been certified by his Columbia professors.

Voila! In 1984, he settled where else but in Chicago where corrupt politicians were notorious and where dead and non-existent people had miraculously been known to vote.

Black Racism Or Inferiority Complexes?

It seems some people have been energized, validated, if you will, by the election of the first Black president of the United States to the extent that they feel free to make asses of themselves.

The markedly un-serene Serena Williams,bred by her father-coach to win at all costs, had already announced she was the greatest tennis player on the face of the Earth and on all other known inhabited planets.

She threw a hissy fit at the semi-finals of the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., demonstrating not just a distinct lack of sportsmanship but a total lack of class.

One especially unsympathetic observer commented that Serena “is a quitter. Yes, we saw the temper tantrum, saw her drop the f-bombs and tell the lines judge that she could take ‘this (bleeping) ball’ and stuff ‘it down your (bleeping) throat.’ “

The same commentator accused Williams of being a coward since she knew she had already lost and chose to be bounced from the match rather than be shown up as the consummate loser that she is:

Later Saturday night, “entertainer” Kanye West showed a similar lack of innate class at the Video Music Awards, also in N.Y.C.

West, best known for his insane vitriol about George W. Bush, accusing GWB of hating Black people and wanting them dead because he didn’t work a miracle after Katrina, vaulted onto the stage at the VMA when a White girl won the “Best Female Video” award and wrested the mic from the winner.

Songstress Taylor Swift was about to sing “You Belong to Me” when the always articulate West grabbed the microphone and yelled to a chorus of boos, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’m a [sic] let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time:”

Ms. Swift, a true, unflustered trooper, went on with the show as Kenye West slunk off into his cave. To their credit, even Black entertainers were embarrassed by his behavior.

For those interested in viewing West’s gross exhibition of classlessness, the video is available at that link.

I just wonder what’s going on with Blacks in this country, and elsewhere.

Granted Serena Williams has never had the appeal of Maria Sharapova, Anna Kournikova, or even of Arthur Ashe in days past. She has also never had the aplomb, or attractiveness, of Sharapova, Kournikova, or even of Ashe.

Maybe a mirror would help Serena gain some perspective.

(As a personal aside, I think Serena should be subjected to a gender identity investigation, just as the South African female runner, Caster Semanya of Limpopo: Serena looks like a male weightlifter more than she resembles Ms. Semanya. . .

Seriously, what is it with Republicans and constantly feeling threatened?
Its like you consciously decide to fear everything and everyone you don't know much about.
I say be a bit more open-minded, and you'll say thats socialist-fag talk, to which my response is to tell you to shut the fuck up and stop being a stupid child.

How is not immediately being afraid of something being a queer? surely thats the least queer response to an issue.

You know what? fuck the right.
Fuck conservatism, fuck nationalism and fuck fascism.
Its all just a load or horseshit, designed to keep everyone alert, angry and frightened about everything.
And you can forget all that crap about how people on the right are more charitable, because you only donate time and money to - in your minds - increase your chances of going to heaven

Posted by: aquatarkus at September 14, 2009 5:35 AM

acquaDORK is classic example of the typical foaming at the mouth Marxist Liberals that now infest the Whitehouse.

Posted by: Moonbat Patrol at September 14, 2009 5:49 AM

you know what Moonbat Patrol?
I'm proud to be a "foaming at the mouth Marxist Liberal" in the same way you're proud of being a single-minded, imperialistic buffoon, and accusing me of having leftist ideals only makes me happier.

I have never met, or even heard of a conservative who wasn't a greedy, unimaginative prick who took the moral high ground in every discussion (such as this pointless comment section).
I'm fucking sick of them all claiming to know the one solution to any problem and accusing liberals of being 'terrorists' or 'traitors' just because we like to think issues through, rather than just turning every dilemma into a global dick-swinging contest.

By the way, Obama is clearly a very nice and intelligent guy, and if you can't see that, then you're a fool.
You can bitch all you want about how thats just a carefully constructed public image, but bear in mind, Republican presidents have created their own facades to fool the voter.

So fuck you.

Remember that Buffalo Springfield song from the sixties? It started out with these lyrics-"There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear"

Yeesh, I just did a search for the lyrics (using Bing, not Barney Google). It's ironic that forty years ago, that song was about the Vietnam War. Now, the lyrics could be applied to the Washington D.C., and all other Tea Parties.

Get ready, Demoncrats, the patriots have come home to roost.

Posted by: Graycat at September 14, 2009 3:11 PM

Two things Graycat.
1. You could apply those lyrics to any situation.
2. Shut the fuck up, you got that from the news.

To quote a Tool song :"I know the pieces fit/ cause I watched the fall away"
Clearly that song is referring to the way that governments know about problems, but allow them to get really bad (sarcasm).

Posted by: aquatarkus at September 15, 2009 1:02 AM

Aquadork: Thank you for your kind, thoughtful, heartfelt words. I can't even begin to express what a warm fuzzy feeling they bring to me. Your parents must be proud of your civility and use of profane language. They have taught you well, grasshopper.(Sarcasm) I can lay it on thick, too.

I did not get that from the news, I have been thinking about it for a long time now. Long before this past Saturday's gathering of patriots in Washington D.C. and other cities and towns in, this, our great nation. I've posted plenty of thoughts on this blog. That's what blogs are for and Van H, runs a great forum. I have never directed profane language toward any person with whom I disagree. A sarcastic comment or a snide re-working of a poster's "handle," yes, but directing offensive, profane language toward someone, no. That got that tennis player, what's her name, in trouble and cost her the game. Athletes and coaches get kicked out of games for it and sometimes even fined for using profane language. You are in great company and among friends in that respect.

At Moonbattery, you are not among friends, so why are you here?

You seem to have a knack for using the F bomb. That's intellegent. Since I first posted on this forum, I have gained a great amount of friends--even though I have never met them in person. So
thank you Karin, American to the core, Jimbo, Spurwing Plover, Berlet 98, The Mary Hunter, Dave, SK, Jay Guevara, fuzzlenutter, TED, Farmer Ted, Iopian, Mr. Evilwrench, Gregory of Yardale and many others I have not yet mentioned.

Now, aquadork, why don't you and "Ghost of Gallstone," candy "Andy" and all the other liberal trolls who infest this blog go and play on or, OKAY? Please?
Thank you.

Graycat: I was rather rude about something quite trivial and I apologise.

I stumbled across this site through means unknown because I've been at home ill this week and have a lot of time on my hands.
After reading a few articles on this site I was overwhelmed by the somewhat hateful, almost vitriolic nature of the people submitting comments and articles and I started to lash out at them without considering that they might be hurt by my words.
It doesn't matter what idealogies we ascribe to, we are still all people, we all have feelings, and again, I apologise.

You have not chastened me politically, as a liberal, but you have certainly made me aware of not being an inconsiderate (trying to think of a less rude word) moron to those who don't agree with me.

By the way, my mum was always lenient towards and sometimes encouraged swearing because she believes it to be cathartic and often necessary to truly convey your feelings towards something.
Admittedly I misjudged this situation. Sorry.
