You can't be too cynical No matter how cynical you are, you're
not nearly cynical enough!

Looking for the San Antonio Tea Party? Just hit that link. This is no longer The San Antonio Tea Party's home (it was once, and then it wasn't,
and then once again it was, and now once again it's not). This is now just the blog of little old me. Robin Juhl,
proprietor (Webmaster@TheyThinkYouAreStupid.com). That's ALL. I'm no longer on the board of SATP and have no say in the policy thereof. But God
It's going to take me a while to plough through the 200+ page ruling. (Enjoy it here.)
My initial reactions:
1. They used the Due Process clause. Boo! The Privileges and Immunities
clause would have been better.
2. The hoplophobes scream this will mean more deaths, ignoring reality -- where anti-gun laws are tightened, crime soars.
also scream about how much this will cost. Never seems to be a worry when it's one of their pet causes winning in
court. We have to allow anti-Americans the right to gather even though the have already announced plans to do violence?
Freedom! We can't have FBI files on them? Freedom! Allow guns in law-abiding homes? HORROR OF
HORRORS--IMAGINE THE COURT CASES!
This was a step in the right direction, generally speaking. The language of
the Constitution is plain enough. Only the Lilly-Livered-Lenin-Loving-Liberal-Liars could read it otherwise.
Imagine the opportunities for Chicago-style graft. That'd double the cost to $30 Septillion. Oh, and defense contractor
cost overruns? Double that again to $60-90 Septillion. Run into any real technical problems and it'll start to cost
Oh, wait -- READ the article! This is just for the basic materials:
That will only get
you the very basic model of Death Star, no options, no GPS, no radio, no leather heated seats, no mega-laser to obliterate
planets, no turbolaser towers, no computer systems, no miscellaneous life support systems, no crew quarters, no turbo-elevators,
no energy generators, no showers, no air conditioning, no Darth Vader's jacuzzi, no Emperor's home theater system,
and no bloody canteen.
Julia's latest is very good (it's always good!) Here's a sample of her latest Memo (part 5 of 7):
I do wonder, however - if the situation were reversed, and a wholly American-owned drilling company experienced a disaster
of the same magnitude in, say, the North Sea, and the resulting oil plume threatened your coastline - what the tenor of public
and media comment in your sphere would be, then. Just wondering - I'm deeply cynical, that way. BTW, from the tone of
British and European media coverage of Obama in the 2008 election season, I was left with the distinct impression that his
victory being welcomed with hosannas of happy joy by one and all. How's that hope'n'change working out for y'all?
Miss GWB yet?
Wanted to make sure you were aware of the Americans for Prosperity event
happening in Austin July 2-3. I was able to go to one in DC and it was an awesome event. They will have a 10th amendment
panel, an SBOE panel and a "From Tea Parties to Taking Back America" panel and many more. This is a great resource
for grassroots groups to make an impact in our nation.
Speakers, Agenda and Details are here and if you would
send on to your group... http://txdream.org/
There's a Sci-Fi site that I like that has started something totally different--he teaches real math and does it very,
One excellent example: "Converting Repeating Decimals into Fractions." I've had oodles of math -- four semesters of calculus, differential equations, and lots of statistics, but
I never knew the simple trick for converting a number like 6.234234234234... into 6-234/999 (when reduced, that's 6-26/111)
Too often, they seem to think that means "Don't
be patriotic Americans." The latest case in point is highlighted in the Jessica's Well post "Why I use Bing instead of Google: June 6th Version." On the anniversary of the most complicated event ever planned, the beginning of the rescue of Europe and the world
from Nazi dominion? Nothing. But just a few weeks before, on the 30th anniversary of the advent of Pac-Man?
They REALLY celebrate by turning the search page into the game.
When they go out of their way to poke you in the eye, at least avert your gaze!
Do you think Tea Party is just people who are pissed that there is an African American
president? Yup, and the fact that they chose to call themselves "teabaggers," which is slang for a
certain act involving b***s. It sort of says a lot. I would say a mouthful. Looks like it's very upsetting for them, but
he's brilliant. The thing is, he's half white but that's still not enough -- for them it's all white or f**k
off. I think we don't deserve him and certainly teabaggers don't deserve him.
This is the face

"Here's what people need to understand: Government run health care is as well-run and responsive as Obama's
handling of the oil spill. Too little, too late; missed opportunities; and the eternal drive for an "ass to kick"
when the going gets tough."
"If people are unhappy with the candidates who won then you have to ask yourself: how much
effort did YOU put into pushing forth these candidates or did you just do the minimum, or none at all, and warm your hands
by another patriot's fire?"

Former Law: See section 7 of Ch.
158 of R.S. 1846, being CL 1857, § 5862; CL 1871, § 7697; How., § 9283; CL 1897, § 11694; CL 1915, §

So, two consenting adults consent and do what consenting adults do, but
one is now a felon, simply because of his gender while the other is a victim, regardless of her actions. Imagine some 40-year-old
"cougar" seducing an 18-year-old boy. He's the felon!
Unfair (but fun) dig: Which party
is in charge in Michigan?
This illustrates two major points. First, it's why I have always
insisted that the Tea Party MUST have a policy of non-toleration of violence. Remember THE RULES! Second, it shows how the left is willing to use and to condone violence on their behalf. Had this been the other
way around, it'd be the lead story on national news. Instead, we get this lame attempt to paint Tea Partiers as
I especially love Andrea Mitchel's use of the term "militants"
for us. Same term they use for those who fly airliners full of innocent people into buildings full of innocent people.

This is just fracking unbelievable. After all the hell raised about Cheney's links to oil companies, one would
think this would be trumpeted daily in the big media. (But that would be in a rational world.)
. . . Shortly after Obama's happy inaugural, eyebrows rose slightly upon word that, as a House member, Emanuel
had lived the last five years rent-free in a D.C. apartment of Democratic colleague Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and her
husband, Stanley Greenberg. . . . Greenberg's consulting firm was a prime architect of BP's recent rebranding
drive as a green petroleum company, down to green signs and the slogan "Beyond Petroleum."
company is also closely tied to a sister Democratic outfit -- GCS, named for the last initials of Greenberg, James Carville,
another Clinton advisor, and Bob Shrum, John Kerry's 2004 campaign manager.
According to published reports, GCS
received hundreds of thousands of dollars in political polling contracts in recent years from the Democratic Congressional
Probably just a crazy coincidence. But you'll never guess who was the chairman of that Democratic
Congressional Campaign Committee dispensing those huge polling contracts to his kindly rent-free landlord.
filth and corruption -- Your Government at Work!
Seriously, this isn't BIG NEWS on all the networks?
Is there a chance in Hell that it wouldn't be a matter of life and death if this were a Republican? Our country
is il-served by our press and mal-served by our "leaders."
Judging by your profile picture you are obviously taking an extremely
one sided view of this whole situation. I do not look at things in terms of moral absolutes of good vs. evil. The world is
more complex then that, there are nuances and complex issues to contend with on both sides. When I make a decision I always
try to be as objective ...
My answer came in a series:
Absolutes: One side seeks
to kill the other side's children. The opposite side seeks to provide care to all children.
One side honors
those who purposely murdered children as heroes and names kids sports teams after them. The other doesn't.
One side bulldozes homes because the families did not get the permits, beating old women to force them out, yet gets no
bad press. The other side does that when rockets are fired at civilians from that home and is roundly criticized.
More absolutes: One side chants "Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas!" The other allows ships full of supplies
through the blocade after making sure they aren't carrying weapons.
. . .
More absolutes: One side
sneaks across the border to kill any Jew they can get their hands on. The other side arms their commandos with paintball
guns in an attempt to spare lives.
As you can see, I give no truck to those who see any moral equivalence
between those who are just screaming about how the want to kill all the Jews and Israel.
Both Christians and Moslems
believe in "Armageddon." The Moslems plan to be fighting on the side that attacks Israel. Spin that
into your moral equivalence mixer! Those who plan to fight with The Devil against God will be evil then and are evil
