"reprint" of my interview with Dylan Ratigan last night:
I, and FedUpUSA,
ought to sue anyone using this moniker for their so-called "political
affiliation" for defamation.
But so are
All of you.
Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Bob Barr, and douchebag groups such
as the "Tea Party Patriots."
- Free Markets
That sounds pretty good. But did you read "Free Markets"?
Markets: A free market is the economic consequence
of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and
economic freedom were indivisible, as do we. Our current government’s
interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit
of individual and economic liberty. Therefore, we support a
return to the free market principles on which this nation was
founded and oppose government intervention into the operations
of private business.
government intervention eh? You mean, you oppose
stringing up the people who break the law and steal people’s homes
and wealth? Private business is only private up
until it rips someone off.
missing from this mission statement and principles: Any
mention of why I and others led people to mail tea bags to Congress
and our President in the first place: rampant theft of taxpayer
money propping up FAILED private businesses.
at what’s over at TeaParty.Org:
you’ll find the usual pablum. Guns, gays, God.
Heh, I like
talking about Guns, Gays and God too. Let’s talk about all
of them within the context of The Constitution, which
is what the Tea Party was supposed to be about.
What part of "shall not be infringed" didn’t you bother
to read? That one’s simple. And yes, this means
that under The Bill of Rights there should be no Brady Law
nor any bar on a convicted felon who has served his time buying
or owning a weapon! I know what the current law says
and I understand the reasoning behind it. But you can’t
square it with the clear language in the Second Amendment.
Our entire system of criminal justice rests on the premise that
if you are convicted of a crime and serve the time for it, your
debt to society is paid. If said convicted criminal
is still dangerous to society (and thus shouldn’t have a right
to self-defense) why are we letting him out so he
can victimize other people? Sentences should
reflect this; you should not be released until you are no longer
a danger to society – period. Prison is often
debated as to whether it’s about rehabilitation or punishment
– I argue it is neither, it is and should be about
removing those who harm others from society until they are no
longer a threat to others.
What part of "what you do in your bedroom is none
of my damn business" didn’t you bother with? You
can find that in the 4th Amendment as well as elsewhere.
In terms of public space what is your private sexual
preference and life doing in the public space in the first
place? 200 years ago we called such people perverts
and stuck them in the stocks. You want to address this
problem? It’s simple: That’s a gay (or straight) person’s
private life and its none of anyone else’s damn business
what two or more consenting adults do behind a closed door on
What part of the Establishment Clause didn’t
you bother to read? "Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting
the free exercise thereof;" You want prayer
in the schools? Not unless I can lead a prayer to
Allah should I so choose; it is not Constitutional to favor
one religion over another. Therefore, you either
keep it all out or you keep none of it out, and my preference
is to keep all of it out, although I’ll settle for none –
either position is Constitutional. No other position is,
and that’s the beginning and end of it. The same applies
to any other publicly-run and funded space. What
people do on their own private property with regard to how they
worship is none of your damn business.
we’ve dispensed with Guns, Gays and God in the
context of what one of the founders
of the Tea Party Movement believes, I’ll deal with the rest.
Tea Party was initiated as a political protest against the unlawful
and in fact unconstitutional usurpation of power from the Congress
and The People in the form of extortion-led bailouts of enterprises
that had engaged in acts that I, and many others, believe were
at least civilly actionable and in many cases crossed the line
into criminal activity.
is not limited to the nation’s large banks, although it certainly
starts there. The corruption of our economic and monetary
systems runs the gamut from Fannie and Freddie through their ties
to Congress (including literal sexual encounters
in some cases), banking interests selling trash securities to
everyone from pension funds on down, judges who don’t judge but
rather protect monied interests on Wall Street, The Federal Reserve
intentionally debasing our currency and monetizing government
debt, government spending that is running 40% above revenues and
The Tea Party was and is about the corruption
of American Politics and the blatant and outrageous theft from
all Americans that has resulted. It is about personal responsibility
and enforcement of the law against those who have robbed, financially
****d and pillaged the nation.
we hear literally nothing about these
issues among the so-called "Tea Party" candidates and
their backers. Sarah Palin has not said one word
about locking up the banksters that brought up on the housing
bubble and economic collapse. Not one word
about Bernanke’s out-of-control Fed and the arguably unlawful
monetization of Fannie and Freddie paper, not to mention the monetization
of the Federal Debt. Not one word about
throwing judges such as this one:
in the dock
– although that, ladies and gentlemen, is a statement of
felony judicial corruption. If you
as an investor run into trouble with a commodity or futures trade
and sue you will not get your day in court – a
literal "green light" to rob the people by the big banks
with official judicial sanction.
And you wonder how Hillary Clinton managed to "win"
in her Cattle Futures trades eh? Wonder no more.
my ass. This was nothing other than The Republican Party
stealing the anger of a population that
was fed up with The Republican Party’s own theft of
their tax money at gunpoint to bail out the robbers of Wall Street
and fraudulently redirecting it back toward electing
the very people who stole all the ****ing money!

all of the above, do it now, and apologize for attempting to perpetuate
the financial **** of this nation.
