“JOE THE PLUMBER” TO JOIN “SHOWDOWN IN SEARCHLIGHT” THIS MARCH 27TH

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, better known as “Joe The Plumber,” is the latest speaker to be confirmed for the “Showdown in Searchlight” event that kicks off the Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out tour (website: www.TeaPartyExpress.org).

Wurzelbacher joins the following confirmed speakers at this major event:

  • 2008 Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin
  • 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, Wayne Allyn Root
  • Nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Roger Hedgecock
  • Saturday Night Live alumnus, Victoria Jackson
  • Conservative media icon, Andrea Shea King
  • Conservative Columnist & Commentator, Andrew Breitbart

The “Showdown in Searchlight” tea party rally takes place at “High Noon” on Saturday, March 27th in Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s tiny hometown of Searchlight, NV (population: 700) in the southern Nevada desert.

Wurzelbacher made the following comment about his participation in this huge effort:

“It wasn’t just the Republican and Democrat parties that failed our country. We The People failed by not holding our elected officials accountable when they took us down the road of massive deficits, big government and a loss of our liberties.

“It’s time for American’s to stand up and become their own lobbyists and I am happy to join the Tea Party Express as one of many ways I am active in helping to fight to take our country back.”

Wurzelbacher gained international notoriety when he questioned then-candidate, Barack Obama, about his economic plan during the 2008 presidential campaign. Obama’s “spread the wealth” response panicked conservatives who thought the comment reeked of a socialist attitude.

Since becoming an iconic figure in the 2008 presidential election, Wurzelbacher wrote the book, “Fighting for the American Dream” and has been one of the most high-profile supporters of, and participants in, the tea party movement. Wurzelbacher has spoken at tea party rallies across the nation including Tea Party Express events previously held in Brighton, Michigan; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Fort Collins, Colorado; and Denver, Colorado.

Joe will also be speaking at 4 additional Tea Party Express rallies on this current tour including events in Arizona and Wisconsin.

Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out national tour kicks off March 27th in Searchlight, NV with 42 tea party rallies across the nation, ending in Washington, D.C. for the Tax Day Tea Party on April 15th.

Whiskey and Gunpowder – Collapse Is Inevitable:

Several countries are already past the point of no return. Even if America taxed 100% of all household wealth, it would not be enough to put its balance sheet in the black. And Professors Rogoff and Reinhart show that when external debt passes 73% of GDP or 239% of exports, the result is default, hyperinflation, or both. IMF data show the US already too far gone on both scores, with external debt at 96% of GDP and 748% of exports.

The rioters can go home, in other words. The system will collapse on its own.

Planned Economy or Planned Destruction? 1934…

Hat Tip: Jean Stoner
From: Free Republic

From: jcsjcm

Here’s an old FR thread with an even older booklet written in 1938. Called “The Revolution Was”, by Garret Garrett, a conservative writer back in the day.

Just like your cartoon (well, much longer!), EVERYTHING that Garret describes about FDR can be said about Obama. It is not that unbelievable when one figures that to a Marxist like Obama, FDR had the correct, and highly successful, model to follow. He just didn’t go far enough.

Life As A Leftist

By: Nancy Morgan
Right Bias

After much consideration, I have decided to become a leftist. Here’s why:

As a leftist, I have a right to a living wage. I was born with this right and under the system of social justice Obama and friends are implementing, rich fat cats are under an obligation to pay for my rights.

As a leftist, I also have a right to free health care, a roof over my head, and food on my table. And as long as I keep voting for Democrats, this right will be protected and, hopefully expanded.

As a solid member of the left, I have the right to abort my baby, and even have other people pay for it. I also have the right to free (taxpayer funded) birth control and my boyfriend has the right to obtain sexual enhancement aids for free. Not that he needs them, but, hey, they’re free.

As a leftist, I have the right to indulge in sluttish behavior with whomever I want. Not only that, I can describe myself as ’empowered’ instead of merely being a tramp.

Being a good leftist, I have the right not to be insulted. My behavior is sanctioned by my fellow leftists and it has been decided that anyone who insults me is, by nature, a bigot, and therefore of no consequence.

I also have the right to redefine words. And the right to ridicule anyone who objects. Especially if they’re white Christian males.

Best of all, I am under no obligation to back up my feelings with facts. We on the left understand very well that any and all criticism coming from the right is motivated by hate and therefore invalid.

As a leftist, I don’t have to worry about the consequences of my actions. It is understood that as long as my intentions are pure, the end results don’t matter. I want it known that I fully intend to donate my lottery winnings to those poor Haitians, just as soon as I win them. Please pat me on the back. (Wait for the cameras, you idiot!)

Being a leftist entitles me to marry someone of the same-sex. And my children will have the right to choose their own gender. And schools, businesses and agencies that don’t accommodate our choices could well be liable for prosecution under the hate crimes bill. How cool is that?

I am also free to choose my own God, or no God. This is a no brainer, as everyone knows that Mother Earth is the source of all spirituality. So as long as I don’t litter and I recycle faithfully, I can legitimately claim piety. And as long as I publicly confess my trangressions, there is no need to atone. Whew.

I am now morally justified in walking away from my home mortgage. Those greedy lenders will be left holding the bag. Maybe that will teach them there’s more to life than the bottom line.

And the car I got under ‘cash for clunkers’ won’t be paid for either. Its not my fault I couldn’t pay for it. But as soon as I get my discrimination lawsuit settlement from my former boss, I’ll be able to get it back. Or maybe a new one.

As a leftist, I need focus only on my rights, and their infringement thereof. The government has decided to shoulder my former responsibilities. And about time!

Life as a leftist is good. Having my needs and problems taken care of by the government leaves me free to indulge my inner child. I no longer need to be ashamed of my failures, as I now know that the deck has been stacked against me all my life and those failures were not my fault!

I am now liberated and empowered. As an added bonus, I am a member of four different victim groups, which allows me to maintain the high moral ground. This is called social justice.

I never knew life could be so good. All rights and no responsibilities! This could only happen in America. And as soon as the U.S. atones for past sins to my satisfaction, I’ll be happy to admit that America is not a bad place to live.
