You knew this was coming.

Tea partiers to Omaha's new GOP mayor: Make bold budget cuts, big changes Watchdog.org

Quote:
Her wait-and-see strategy though appears to fall far short of the plan detailed by Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom. NTF—which was Tea Party before the conservative label became fashionable—has released a white paper, “Forward: A Plan of Action for City of Omaha.”
And let's look at some of their awesome ideas.

Quote:
And then there’s privatization for:
  • Snow removal.
  • City ice rinks, golf courses and marinas.
  • Management of the TD Ameritrade ball park “because the city is losing money on this venue.”
  • Major street resurfacing and maintenance.
Other recommendations:
  • Funding cuts to subsidized housing.
  • Abandon public art in parks.
  • Require employees to provide a doctor’s note after two sick days, to “end sick leave abuse.”
  • Lobbying the legislature to repeal the state smoking ban leading to repeal of the city’s anti-smoking ordinance “as the bans depress keno revenues.”

Teabaggers, retard? That's some tolerant language.

I'd say those classic liberal folks you are slandering are correct for pushing for accountable and sustainable govt.

If you want art in the parks, start a group, raise $, and donate it. No need to pick-pocket the public to further line the pockets of powerful, connected artists.

I'll also note that our OP not only uses the offensive "teabagger" label but the even more offensive "retard." Yeah, that's one great idea, mate. Way to get people on your side from the get go.

I have no tolerance for teabaggers, so that is no surprise.

No, they're pushing for a miniscule and stupid government.

LOL! I think that's the first time I've ever heard "powerful" and "connected" as adjectives for modern artists.

"Teabaggers" is a term they themselves used, until they realized what they were actually calling themselves. Bet next time they'll run it by a 16 year old first!

And I should apologize. I'm sure retards would take offense at being compared to teabaggers.

This isn't about getting people on my side. It's about insulting the stupid people.

That statement is absolutely and demonstrably false, as the term was first used by (no surprise) Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and then other left media types, including President Obama. I have no doubt, though, that you are correct that most people sympathetic to the Tea Party movement had no idea what the slang term meant. They tend not to roll in the gutter with your types.

Maybe next time you'll run your comment by a 16 year old first, though I am not sure you know anyone older than you.

Excellent post.

I wouldn't bother with a troll thread like this except to say that I'm glad to see it getting the push-back it deserves.

It has already been said but who are the teabaggers? I have only heard MSNBC and immature people use this word. If you mean the tea party then you need to rethink your comment. Its apparent that you have no idea what you're talking about.

With a thread title like this, I know in advance I'm dealing with a real winner.

As for the ideas put forward by the Tea Party Patriots? Every one of 'em is a gem. Sounds like the grownups are back in charge.

I'm guessing Bosco is what the OP's mommy makes for him before the footsie pajamas go on.

If we're "teabaggers", I guess that makes those opposed to us "teabagees".

Whatever.
