It's the Unions, Stupid..

There's a buzz about the blogosphere and the twittersphere about a new, supposedly grass-roots organization called "The Tea Party is Over" whose mission is.."To prevent the Tea Party's dangerous ideas from gaining legislative traction." They call the Tea Party Movement (which was more than likely responsible for the democrat loss of Ted Kennedy's seat in Massachusetts)a 'fad' and their ideas, 'dangerous.'
This movement is a fad. Some of their ideas include the belief that programs like Social Security and Medicare are socialistic and should never have been created in the first place and that President Obama is a Socialist.


They also target key elected representatives who agree with those 'dangerous ideas'
David McAloon

McAloon has a history of supporting extreme anti-Obama, pro-life, pro-gun positions, while advocating lucrative tax breaks for the wealthy. He claims that the "abortion industry" is "after blood money" and is intent on "victimizing women." Call David at xxx-xxx-xxxx and tell him to reject the dangerous ideas of the Tea Party.
Yeah... gotta get those dangerous ideas, like saving the lives of children, and defending the rights of citizens to protect themselves out of the public discussion.

Arie Friedman

Friedman actually advocates eliminating Medicaid. And he publicly doubts the proven science of global warming, even despite national security warnings that climate change threatens America’s economy.
Yeah.. the proven science of global warming. Give me a break.

Yet, I digress.

Yes, I know that the force behind this mind-numbed, bromide-filled site is just a grass roots movement called "The American Public Policy Committee." Just a group of well-meaning citizens, right?

Well, it turns out that only two groups donated to the APCC: Patriot Majority, and Patriot Majority West.

Who, pray tell, is the "Patriot Majority?"
Patriot Majority, running ads against Dole, Wicker and Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), just reported a $1.65 million haul from AFSCME, in addition to $1.5 million from the union earlier in the month, not to mention even more before October.
Yeah.. Some grass-roots movement you got there. When it comes to Astroturfing, the neo-socialists are the professionals. We conservatives are pikers.

But I guess I'm not surprised. The ideas coming out of the real grass-roots Tea Party movement are indeed a danger to the advancement of socialism and lining the pockets of union goons.
