In reply to: The Tea Party rebellion is still alive

Whether they are calling themselves Tea Party members or not, the sentiment is still the same and it's still working and moving forward.

ONLY mention of Tea Party in your link is, that the "Tea Party favorite" lost the election.

In Kentucky, one of the last Democratic bastions in the South, a Republican won the governorship, a Tea Party favorite who lost to “Ditch” Mitch McConnell.

You think my writing is "babble" Tell everyone exactly what this person is saying.

The Republican that won, was a Tea Party favorite that lost to "Ditch"

He won but he lost?

He ran against McConnell for the Senate race and lost

In reply to: RE: Whether they are calling themselves Tea Party members or

but he ran again for the Governorship and won.......

Not only do you have trouble making a coherent sentence and end up with babble, but now you're having trouble comprehending what you read.

I'm so sorry, JP....hope your mental state improves soon, or even at all.

The author would have made sense by adding ONE word to the line.

In Kentucky, one of the last Democratic bastions in the South, a Republican won the governorship, a Tea Party favorite who previously lost to “Ditch” Mitch McConnell.

So go complain to that author

Whether they are calling themselves Tea Party members or not

So, what's up with "We the people"(non-partisan American Citizens) and the "Tea Party"(overwhelmingly partisan Republicans)...... a family feud going on?

Using a pre-Tea Party poll in 2006 and going back to the same respondents in 2011, they found the supporters to be not "nonpartisan political neophytes" as often described, but largely "overwhelmingly partisan Republicans" who were politically active prior to the Tea Party.

Are you partisan OR are you non-partisan?

Now I have to ask are you a "Tea Partier" OR are you a "We the People"?

Have you changed horses or are you just trying to say that the "other side" agrees with "your side".

A non-partisan group and an overwhelmingly partisan group doesn't sound like a match made in heaven.

Again, your comprehension level is in question

In reply to: RE:Whether they are calling themselves Tea Party

Tea Party members continuously maintained that they were non-partisan and would vote for Dems or Independents IF they had the same values and policies that the Tea Party reflected and were in favor of....it's not THEIR fault that the majority of those running with those values and policies were overwhelmingly Republican.

So BOTH groups are pretty much the same regarding those values, principles, and values and will STILL vote/support ANY party running for office with those same ideals.

It's called CONSERVATISM, JP..........what the liberal left Democrats of today don't want, don't understand, don't agree with, and are perfectly content to be openly Socialists like Sanders and Warren or hidden Socialists like BO, HC, and too many in Congress and in the Senate and our college professors. They are the 'hippies' of old who realized they couldn't win the fight from outside the DC/government walls so they decided to take a bath, change their clothes and hairstyles, don masks of 'propriety', and fight from within instead.

We now have people like John Kerry.....a 'decorated' VietNam officer who threw his medals over the WH fence, publicly spit in the eye of his fellow military band, and is now Secretary of State making decisions regarding our National Security.

The Tea Party members are mostly the same age group as these radicals in leadership positions and we have long memories..........we were there and saw what they did to our country back then and recognize how dangerous they really are.....We just had/have to keep reminding others and teaching the new generation the ramifications of the radical future they can expect. And it's working....slower than we'd like, but working nonetheless.

Let's see now...

In reply to: Again, your comprehension level is in question

You're "non-partisan" as long as they have the same beliefs as you.

And YOU label people by their political policies/values, and then you claim it doesn't matter to you what their values are, as long as they are the same values as yours.

As long as they are "Tea Party" you will accept their ideas.

Everyone is partisan but the Tea Party?

I notice you do very little ranting about the Republicans.

Is the "Tea Party" a "movement" or a Political Party"?

"Is the "Tea Party" a "movement" or a Political Party"?"

Remember the Tea Party in Boston involved both revolutionaries and those who were loyalist, but also outraged by the Stamp Act which placed taxes on the Tea. Both "political" groups were against facing one more tax. We need more like that since America taxes are worse than any paid King George then.

stamp act was first, tea act was later

Your post

In reply to: Let's see now...

has a door that swings both directions, JP......radical left liberals and activists label everyone as racist or bigot when they don't have the same 'values'/policies as they do. Does that make them 'non-partisan' when nearly every Democrat agrees with them?

Tolerance is another battlecry of the left, but ONLY when Conservatives are the ones that need to be tolerant. The left never shows tolerance except when it's politically beneficial to them and when they can continue to 'transform' a country that's been good to them even as they try to destroy it.

You refuse to recognize the public statements

In reply to: Let's see now...

made by Tea Party members.....and I'm tired of repeating it to you.....they are NOT a Political Party. They will vote for whatever politician no matter what party they belong to as long as they represent the same policies, sentiments, and values that Tea Party members hold to. And the "We The People" group has the same beliefs.

Why Americans should care about the Canadian election

Of course, the US and Canada are deeply intertwined economically. Each is the other’s largest trading partner: trade between the two countries in 2012 – the most recent year for which data is available from the Office of the United States Trade Representative – totalled $707bn.

Canada is also the world’s largest national importer of US goods, spending $51bn a year on US-made cars alone. It is also the second-largest importer of US agricultural products.

NEITHER of which

you complain about because it's financially beneficial to your country (those cars sell for a large profit in Canada compared to the US) AND it was signed into effect by........surprise, surprise......BUSH 41 A REPUBLICAN.

Everything ELSE regarding Dem policies you are all in.............even though they are bad for MY country and don't affect you at all.

Stop playing 'dense'...

In reply to: So America makes cars so Canada can profit?

you don't do it very well.

Canada gets the cars at a reduced price and ups the prices to their customers including transportation charges.

The same cars sold here in the US are sold cheaper because the transportation costs are much lower.

It's the same when cars are sold overseas....only the rich can afford them there which is why so many drive 'clunkers' that they keep fixing up to keep them running.

No comment on that trade agreement being signed by a Republican?

What Dem policies do you disagree with? Have you come up with any yet?

Say what?

In reply to: Stop playing 'dense'...

(Reduced price compared to ?)

The same cars sold here in the US are sold cheaper

Sold in Canada cheaper than they are in America? The (approx 38%)exchange rate on the Canadian dollar wouldn't have anything to do with that, Would it?

American car dealers buying up Alberta’s used vehicles

American car dealers are capitalizing on the weak Canadian dollar by buying up Alberta's used vehicles, trucks in particular.

With the Canadian dollar falling to 76 cents U.S. on Monday, Edmonton used car dealerships are seeing a huge increase in U.S. customers buying trucks, SUVs and luxury vehicles on the wholesale market, a trend that's also causing a price increase on retail trades.

"They're seeing crazy money. There's a lot of U.S. buyers right now who are travelling to Edmonton and other Canadian areas in order to buy,"


No comment on that trade agreement being signed by a Republican?


No.....tell me which one...Which Republican signed this "agreement"...AND which "agreement" did they sign?

RE:Stop playing 'dense'...you don't do it very well.

In other posts today you thought I was doing a very good job of being dense, even to the point of suggesting I had Alz.

I TOLD you already

In reply to: Say what?

Alz kicking in faster and faster, JP?

As for the US dealers buying Canada's used cars.......BO's 'cash for clunkers' required all those used, older cars to be crushed rather than resold as they were traded in as part of his 'green energy' agenda. There are far fewer used US vehicles now and with so many still out of work here, there's no option to buy new (no money and no credit). I would think YOU would be happy to be rid of those 'fossil fuel' relics.

RE:'cash for clunkers'

In reply to: I TOLD you already

Back in 2009, the “Cash for Clunkers” federal program was supposed to be a boon for the environment and the economy. During a limited time, consumers could trade in an old gas-guzzling used car for up to $4,500 cash back towards the purchase of a fuel-efficient new car.

2009...NOT 2015...Get with the program Toni.

which one.....BUSH 41.

George H. W. Bush, as the 41st President (1989-1993)

2016-1993=23 years ago... seems like yesterday?

You're stuck in a time warp.

Are you still talking about the first time you had an ice cream?

MY car sales story is from 2015...your cash for clunkers was 2009...7 years ago.....You believe that "cash for clunkers" is affecting car sales today?
