7. Doesn't understand what democracy is
8. Blindly uses the words "socialism" and "communism" without knowing what the heck they mean

  • Notpanicking,

    I didn't see PsWifey comparing "those that don't agree with her" to those that engage in the sexual act called tea bagging. All she did was provided the listed definitions available. I think you all are being overly sensitive. It's funny because you never seem to have a problem with the overly hateful "jokes" posted on here that are outright attacks on liberals.

    Anyway...and to the person that said its "tea parties not tea baggers" then they probably should not have been carrying around tea bags that first round huh?

  • Teabagger
    1. n. A man that dips his scrotum and testicles into the mouth of another person. (as if dipping a tea bag into hot water)

    2. n. A conservative activist who is so ignorant that they protest against tax cuts (that benefit them) by throwing tea into a river.

  • ha ha, ok. Keep on telling yourself all this "propaganda" that you've just posted is true. Some of us, have the blinders off, and see the truth for what it REALLY is.

    Answer by sunnymom3 at 4:22 PM on Sep. 12, 2009

  • Ps, where do you look up your definitions? PS Dictionary for Liberal Agenda?

    So what, people are protesting. You seem to be taking it personal when it has nothing to do with you, just for your poor choices (in candidates that is). 

    You keep throwing stones, but you might want to take a minute to protect your glass house.

  • Nice copy and paste of the far left talking points

    Answer by Carpy at 4:30 PM on Sep. 12, 2009

  • Every conservative who listens to Fox News doesn't read, watch, or listen to ANYTHING else, though, right? We don't understand the history of government, we don't research anything, we just sit there like dumbasses and absorbed the gospel of Bill O'reilly and Sean Hannity and Glen Beck because we don't think for themselves.

    I am sorry, but I have had many people tell me they are passionately die-hard liberals and when I ask them what their position on healthcare is, they do not have a single thing to say. I am open-minded, I will listen to the other side, do my own research and I wouldn't even have to do that to understand that when it comes to the ECONOMY, more government spending does not help ANYONE! Nobody! The only people it helps is those on unemployment or welfare or people studying pig smells. It does not help the middle class, period.
