Grim Weeper Reaps…

What Tea Party Sowed

      With the help of the Tea Party Republicans, Speaker of the House John Boehner suffered a humiliating and embarrassing defeat today; one that calls into question his competence as Speaker.  He was forced to allow a vote on the middle class Payroll Tax Cut, which Republicans in the House, after days of  rhetoric and vitriol, begrudgingly passed.    Imagine that… having to be pressured to help 160 million Americans save an average of $40.00/paycheck.  A government “by the people, for the people”?  Let’s not forget this come election time shall we?

After signing the extension this morning, President Obama is well on his way to his Christmas in Hawaii – Aloha Mr. President.

The Norquist Quest

 If He Says it’s a Cat – It’s a Cat!

If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

    Who is this man? Who is this G.G.Norquist? Grover Glenn.G-man. G. Republican hit man apparently feared by all… (Republicans).  Who is this soul who grew up in Massachusetts, father was  VP of Polaroid, volunteered for Nixon in 1968, graduated from Harvard with an MBA in ’74?  Who is this lobbyist who does not believe in government; who was quoted as saying: “I don’t want to abolish government – I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it to the bathroom and drown it in the tub”.?  Who is this man, and why does he hate America?

       In 1985,  he formed a group called Americans for Tax Reform, who’s main purpose is to oppose any tax increase regardless of the situation (even Ronald Reagan raised taxes 11 times).  In 1993, he held weekly meetings at his ATR headquarters to fight against the Clinton healthcare plan and as a result became influential  in conservative politics.  He’s since built a network of conservative believers in 48 states and has regular meetings to coordinate Republican talking points and strategy.  All Republican congressmen and a significant amount of Senators have signed on to his ATR’s “Taxpayer Protection Pledge”.  Unfortunately, apparently, this pledge protects only 1% of  American taxpayers.

Who are you Grover Norquist…  and why are you trying to destroy the America our Forefathers so brilliantly conceived?
