These people do Sarah Palin proud, they have no compassion for animals. All they want to do is use up all the natural resources and than we will all have nothing, but death. Sick People!

I have to believe that the majority of Americans do care about wildlife and our environment, but unfortunately a large majority do not participate or inform themselves. For people who abhor politics ~ there are simple measures in which people can check their state reps/senators standing on issues, especially animal and environmental issues. The Humane Society Legislative Fund and environmental orgs like the Sierra Club present simple scorecards on legislatures standing on bills and policy. It's absolutely essential that people understand who they are voting for; who their state legislators are. As long as a good percentage of the American people lack the incentive to inform themselves, these pandering whores will be voted in.

They not only paralyze the government but are on the verge of dismantling pieces of it. People are foolish to support the T P because we-the-people GOVT are not for profit and are only there to help one another.....and if the T P that is financed by billionaires manage to make the GOVT smaller that means the corportists will be in control and not we-the-people. They fool people into believing GOVT is the problem....when indeed its the money-hoarders who are.

Thanks Cal, those people are a bunch of looney toons come to life.

Kathleen R. , I wish, but not in a million years since saving face and correlating their elitism, sexism, nationalism, etc. with fervent flag waving patriotism means more to them than actually having the guts to own up to their hateful motives and platform built upon conservative stupidity.

The entire GOTP are pieces of shit. We have the Koch brothers to thank for funding the TP and Faux News for pushing the TP agenda.

Not surprising. The Tea Party aren't a separate species, they aren't extra-terrestrials, they spore from an environment of privilege, they have no empathy or appreciation for difference, and are schooled in elitist "born to rule" society. They are a sub-culture of conservative politics attempting to differentiate themselves from, in their minds, the mediocre middle-ground and the soft GOP.

People who espouse small government and free enterprise subscribe to the Adam Smith school of economics, where the market will self-correct, i.e. find it's equilibrium, if allowed to operate free of government interference. Adam Smith wrote his major work, The Wealth of Nations, which was the first attempt to comprehensively describe a market based economy, in the late 1770's. It was first published on 9th March 1776. Obviously economics has come a long way since then, however it seems the Tea Party haven't.

If the Tea Party sing their economic policies from a 1776 hymn-book, what does that say about their political outlook? Such people have no social conscience.

Le Tea Party est vraiment en train de perdre la tête. Ces espèces doivent continuer à être protégés, et ce, qu'ils le veuillent ou non.
