The Tea Party - But they want us to take them serious.

But they want us to take them serious.
I found this on image on Facebook at http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/295040_436109279747922_108038612554992_1651367_510008396_n.jpg
The author of this page asks us the question, "Do you see the mistake?" 
 But they want us to take them serious.
This image sets in mind memories of my late teen years when I hung out in the "cool" area of Phoenix where there were many people getting high and some of them did Methamphetamine (chrystal meth/speed). You could always tell those people because they nearly always seemed concerned about "something" the rest of us couldn't see and they were also always "really busy". One night I saw two of them in the yard of the house they were staying at, staring intently into what was left of a recently 'pruned back' hedge that was approximately six inches tall by nine inches wide. They each carried a handgun in one hand and a flashlight in the other. Neither flashlight was emitting any light and although I was quite apprehensive about approaching them, curiosity got the better of me and so I walked over and asked the meeker of the two, "Is there something wrong with your flashlight?" His reply was very matter of fact and self confident when he said, "No bulb and no batteries! That way the Narcs can't see the light!" He acted quite proud of himself for figuring out such a novel and unique solution to the problem of the Narcs (narcotics officers) being able to detect their intentions. These were two grown men on a public street, searching a bush that wasn't big enough to hide a small dog, much less a human being, both armed with .45 caliber automatics, fully loaded. And they were completely serious. This was a vital concern to them and they wanted everyone to know how serious they were about these fictional policemen who manifested themselves only in their minds.
When I see one of the Tea Baggers  I always have to wonder what kind of recreational chemicals that they are high on. (I refuse to call the recent crop of malcontent crack pots by the name Tea Party since that movement was a proud rebellion in our nation's history originally, and the other Tea Party was the ones who were organized against gun control in 1991. Trying to hijack someone else's name after discovering that the name you selected was a laughable euphemism for a gay sex act isn't kosher in my book.)
But they want us to take them serious.
Yet they want us to know how serious they are. Their protest signs are misspelled in their protest against a president who somehow very secretly (to them, it seems) lowered taxes, tries to promote nuclear disarmament, had Bin Laden killed, and promotes the commonly shared idea of; a) health care for everyone b) equal opportunities for those who want work, health care, opportunities in education and employment, and c) wants to campaign on the side of education and green energy instead of wars to sustain a sense of false pride in a nation whose subculture of misguided human beings who cry out for an imperialistic use of our "superpower" capabilities (which is actually the desires of some aristocratic predatory capitalists) to create wars in other countries, whom are actually suffering from being in a state of unreal fears. These fears are perpetuated by a media that is hungry for attention and readership so they invent news instead of reporting it, creating a divisiveness and hate that is tearing our country and democracy itself apart. This group follows the mob rule mentality of people following an ideal that is counterproductive and contrary to their own needs, like lemmings running over a cliff.
