I fell out of my chair and snorted my morning cup of joe when I read this statement made by Sowell.

Promoting paranoia translates into votes. It is a very cynical political game

How hilarious that one of the mass promoters of paranoia while slandering the left would make such a statement.

The tea party is the party of paranoia and so here are a few choice examples;

That’s because Fox commentator and Tea Party fanatic Glenn Beck said last year he had tried but could not refute claims that the Obama administration was creating FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) camps that would house its political opponents.

Activists Fight Green Projects, Seeing U.N. Plot
February 3, 2012

Across the country, activists with ties to the Tea Party are railing against all sorts of local and state efforts to control sprawl and conserve energy. They brand government action for things like expanding public transportation routes and preserving open space as part of a United Nations-led conspiracy to deny property rights and herd citizens toward cities.

They are showing up at planning meetings to denounce bike lanes on public streets and smart meters on home appliances — efforts they equate to a big-government blueprint against individual rights.

Santorum's Incredible Display of Ignorance On Euthanasia In the Netherlands
Posted: 02/26/2012 3:02
In an interview with Social Conservative leader James Dobson in early February, GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum ignorantly -- and falsely -- claimed that in the Netherlands euthanasia makes up ten percent of all deaths, and that forced euthanasia accounts for five percent of all deaths there.

Obama to Suspend Elections?
Added Oct 1, 2011, Under: Opinion
I’ve been speculating about this for years. How easy would it be for a President, facing landslide defeat in an upcoming re-election to contrive some domestic crisis which he can then exploit to declare martial law and suspend elections, essentially squatting in office indefinitely?

Link State rep. admits regret over posting controversial Obama photo on Facebook.CHARLOTTE – State Representative John Torbett had a flurry of comments Thursday afternoon after he reposted a picture that had President Barack Obama in a white turban.

The president was among former commander-in-chiefs in a picture collage titled "American Presidents in Uniform."

Torbett took down the post, but not before it generated both support and criticism that it was insensitive. On Friday, Torbett expressed his regrets about reposting the picture.

"I was trying to gauge response, and inevitably, I got some,” he said.

Torbett faced a social media backlash after he linked the image on his Facebook page.

"It's blatant disrespect to the commander-in-chief,” said James Hall, a local radio host and a Muslim.

"I was asking a question to gauge a response, and obviously I got that response, so learned a lesson from that,” said Torbett.

The picture showed past presidents in military dress, compared to President Obama, who has never served, wearing with a white turban.

Torbett added the caption: “Humm, kinda speaks volumes. Yes...No."

"I would like to thank those that responded, on both sides of whatever they interpreted that to be, the awareness that I have now it sets the bar higher for me,” said Torbett.

"I looked at the posting, and it was quite a shock,” said Hall

Hall believed the posting and image of Obama in the turban had racial and anti-Islamic undertones.

"Not to say there's anything wrong with Arabs, but the President of the United States is an American, and I think that he should be treated with the respect he rightfully deserves," said Hall.

Torbett said he took the picture posting down after an hour, after it generated dozens of likes and comments, in both support and opposition.

"One of the respondents said for someone who serves all the people I should be a little more sensitive, and I concur with that,” said Torbett.

I love mornings, but I am going to have to keep extra shirts in my office due to the hilarity of other blogs. I keep snorting my coffee over what I read. This mornings goody is how people can actually tell what our President is thinking by what he didn't say, not what he said. I can't think of what constitutes the bigger idiot, the one that reads this drivel and believes it, or the one that reads it and posts it and thinks others will be as stupid as them and believe it also. I guess it goes with the old saying, "birds of a feather"

Link Anti-Obamacare Forces Introduce Their Latest Effort To Mislead The Public.On Tuesday, the Congressional Budget Office released its 2012 estimate on the ten- year projected cost of the Affordable Care Act. Instantly, the anti-Obamacare crowd took to the airwaves and social media to proclaim that the numbers reveal the costs of the Affordable Care Act to be double what was promised when the law was passed.

Wow. That’s some scary stuff.

Good thing it is a complete and utter falsehood.

I suppose it should not come as a great surprise that the opponents of Obamacare would mobilize—given that the CBO report actually estimates a net decrease in the costs of health care reform totaling $51 billion when compared to last year’s estimates. The last thing those who oppose the law want is Candidate Obama running around the country talking about how the estimated cost of his landmark health care reform are actually going down.

Indeed, not only is the GOP pitch a gross distortion of the truth, this is one of those all too rare moments where I get to actually prove the meme to be nothing more than another effort to confuse Americans.

Link GOP freshmen, big-bucks donors hobnob at resort.(CBS News) There are 468 congressional campaigns going on right now.

That means a lot of serious fundraising.

Much of it is behind closed doors, except on a recent weekend at a South Florida resort, where CBS News got an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes.

It was the first Campaign 2012 fundraiser for a group of freshmen Republicans. All face tough, well-financed races against Democrats, and need to come up with big dollars to buy TV time. They get that by wooing special interests willing to pay a lot of money for special access.

In 2010, many freshmen Republicans were swept into Congress on the promise of doing things differently.

But fast-forward to 2012, and the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Fla. -- an exclusive seaside resort and home to 54 holes of championship golf and a private marina full of luxury yachts

Link Natural Born Drillers.To be a modern Republican in good standing, you have to believe — or pretend to believe — in two miracle cures for whatever ails the economy: more tax cuts for the rich and more drilling for oil. And with prices at the pump on the rise, so is the chant of “Drill, baby, drill.” More and more, Republicans are telling us that gasoline would be cheap and jobs plentiful if only we would stop protecting the environment and let energy companies do whatever they want.

Link GOP Enthusiasm Has Fallen Steeply Since 2008.Republicans are less enthusiastic about having Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum as their potential presidential nominee than they were four years ago about Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., according to a Gallup survey released on Thursday. For conservatives, the lackluster numbers are a worrying sign that the party’s already bitter primary fight has sapped voter enthusiasm and left the GOP weakened for the fall battle with President Obama.
Gallup reported that just 35 percent of Republicans surveyed said they would vote enthusiastically for front-runner Romney if he becomes the party’s standard-bearer. Similarly, 34 percent said they would enthusiastically support Santorum, his main challenger for the nomination and the preferred choice of the most-conservative Republicans.

According to the CBS Evening news tonight, PA. has become the 8th state to pass a Photo ID requirement, in order to vote in this years Nov. elections. Also according to the CBS evening news not one case of voter ID fraud could be found in that state over the last several years. Of course they also said that this law is likely aimed at the poor and the elderly(which was denied by a Republican spokesman). The law will now be challeged in the PA courts. Just reporting what was said tonight, TEA.

Sorry Original, but I have to totaly disagree with you after reading up on Wisconsin's original constitution concerning voting and this article 23 enacted by Walker which has been overturned by the courts.

Lotis, I have to agree with you in the fact that requiring voters to show approved ID does not bother me at all. However, I after reading why article 23 was declared unconstitutional, not only do I agree with it, it also shows another reason why the tea party is as phony as a three dollar bill.

When you read the 8 page paper and also look at legal experts factual intepretation of the law (forget about both the right and left political pundints that are trying to turn this intpo their agendas advantage)it boils down to this plain fact. You cannot enact a law that goes against the state constitution. Or put another way no elected government is stronger than the original state constitution unless it meets the requirements to change that constituional law. You cannot abridge the constitution. (isn't that one of the primary tenets of the tea party? Government not overstepping their constitutional boundaries? Once again, tea party showing theiur true draconian colors.) Now granted, that the constitution was written at a time that the Wisconsin forefathers did not carry or probably could not foresee the need for picture ID's and so a case could be made that this is just a natural progression and in todays society is needed, but to do so in this case would require a constitutional ammendment.

I understand what you are saying, lotis, but it seems this law or idea of photo I.D.'s is aimed at the poor (ie.really another word mostly for Blacks and Hispanics, although there are many poor whites too) I believe the cost would be about $22 dollars for such an ID.(Almost like a poll tax). This would discourage poor people from getting one.(It is a fact that most of that group tends to vote democratic)Is it necessary for such an ID to prevent voter fraud? Maybe, but even a Bush Adm. study in the mid 2000's, showed only a 0.003% evidence of such fraud.(Fig. from NBC). The proposed law in Mississippi is still in the legislature-- notice they saw no need to pass it thru before the Republican primary(maybe that's because of those who voted in that primary were, 97% White, 2% Black, and 1 % other, so they saw no need to pass it through by then. --Only for the General election would they need it, obviously the Republicans would not be involved with voter fraud.

Whether you agree with voter id laws or not isn't the issue. Below you will find an article detailing why Judge Neiss ruled accordingly and below that how tea party members turn it into a paranoia event;

Dane County circuit judge Richard Niess issued the permanent injunction one week after another judge temporarily stopped the law.

Niess found the law to be an unconstitutional abridgement of the right to vote, effectively disfranchising eligible voters without ID. He argued that while Governor Walker and the state legislature have the power to enact election laws, their constitutional authority was exceeded by eliminating the right to vote for some eligible voters.

"Without question, where it exists, voter fraud corrupts elections and undermines our form of government," wrote Niess in his eight-page decision. "The legislature and governor may certainly take aggressive action to prevent its occurrence. But voter fraud is no more poisonous to our democracy than voter suppression. Indeed, they are two heads on the monster."

and here is how we turn it into a paranois event.

How are Voter ID Cards racist? Which race can't be photographed? Vampires?

Poor romney, he tries so hard to fit in as the average person when it is so obvious that he's not. The funny thing is as a businessman, I would have more respect of him if he touted his good fortune as an entrepeneur.
