Tea Party rally in Searchlight Nevada, hometown of Harry Reid

“State owned” Associated Press declares:  “Tea Party rally to draw angry crowds, scrutiny”

Oh, woe is me. Of course, there are no angry crowds.   Reports are at least 10,000 people showed up and the only angry crowds were the Harry Reid supporters who had gathered for donut holes somewhere nearby, and threw eggs at the Tea Party Express bus.

Harry Reid Supporters Egg Tea Party Express Buses in Route

Supporters of Senator Harry Reid have just thrown eggs at the Tea Party Express bus caravan – striking at least one of the three buses (the red Tea Party Express bus) with multiple eggs.

Harry Reid himself issued a statement and warmly “welcomed” everyone to his hometown.  Sweet Harry.

“I’m happy so many people came to see my hometown of Searchlight and spend their out-of-state money, especially in these tough economic times,” Reid said Saturday in a statement released through his Senate campaign. “This election will be decided by Nevadans, not people from other states who parachuted in for one day to have a tea party.”

He really knows how to win ’em over, doesn’t he?

Police officer said, “It’s nice and peaceful.”


Sarah Palin, keynote speaker, told the tea partiers “Now when we talk about “fighting” for our country. Let’s clear the air right now on what it is we’re talking about. We’re not inciting violence. Don’t get sucked into the lamestream media’s lies about conservative America’s standing up for freedom as inciting violence.”

The King said to them, “But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?” And they replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

“Patient protection and Affordable care Act” – HR3590 full text

HR 3590 – otherwise known as the Senate bill – now signed into law.

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h3590/text

I’m trying to find the text of the reconciliation/amendment bill, which has also been signed into law.  Haven’t found it yet.

I believe this is the reconciliation bill:

Average Americans have been slandered and reviled

Last weekend a large group of citizens assembled in Washington, D. C. to protest the passage of a bill they did not want passed.  Last chance plea.  Well, guess what?  It passed anyway.  By the use of many tricks, underhanded deals, and other manipulations of the system, it passed.  Not surprisingly, some people are mad about it.  Maybe I should say many people are mad about it.  I am mad about it.  Frustrated and mad because we have been poked in the eye and slandered and maligned falsely.

But the last straw is this most recent trumped up media storm to discredit and, yes, slander, the tea party movement.  The democrats/media can’t seem to stop themselves, calling them racist, homophobic, and let’s see, what else – mobs, teabaggers, violent, thugs, brownshirts, blah, blah, blah, and this has been broadcasted over the public airways continuously since last summer.  Relentlessly, over and over.  And not just the media, but it has come from our esteemed elected “representatives” and even the highest officials, as the Speaker of the House (astroturf) and of the Leader of the Senate (evil-mongers).

Even the president came close with his mocking statement about “waving tea bags around.”  Notice:  These are American citizens exercising their right to peacefully assemble – not some invading foreign power.  American citizens, speaking truth to power.


It’s pretty darn funny that now suddenly those doing the mocking want to jump up and call for “civility.”  Give me a bleeping break.  It has moved clearly into the realm of the ridiculous when you hear supposedly serious questions referring to words like “battleground state,” “reload,” “targeted seats” as ramping up violence.  Do they not realize how stupid this sounds?

Now a full seven days after the vote, it continues, broadcasters speaking as if some wrongdoing was done, but nothing has been proved against anyone in this group.

A new video has emerged showing clearly the alleged spitting incident.  It shows the congressman actually as the aggressor, moving towards a man who is yelling with his hands on each side of his mouth, the congressman getting in his face and pointing at him.  And there’s a policewoman standing there observing the whole thing.  Did she arrest anyone?  No.  Did anyone shout anything other than “kill the bill?”  Remember how very carefully the president referred to the panty bomber as the “alleged” bomber.  These people are not given the benefit of “alleged.”  http://www.breitbart.tv/spit-take-video-captures-congressmans-saliva-encounter/

I wish somebody would sue.

Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)—is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, or nation a negative image.

Libel or slander must be:

  1. Communicated to someone else.  [as in broadcasting on national tv day and night]
  2. Harmful to the reputation of the person (or group) the statement refers to [yes, harmful and hurtful, too]
  3. Malicious [and it goes without saying that it is malicious]

“”the falsity of the accusation is to be implied till the contrary is shown.”” 2 East, R. 436

“”Malice is in general to be presumed until the contrary be proved.””
