Pre-Tea Party Tweets Warn of Martial Law, B.O.
"#TeaParty rap video worth a click and r/t: http://tinyurl.com/df8y3y." (warning: ugh)
"yes, we know exactly what 'teabagging' means... is that all you have to offer? similarities between words?"
"All of this breaking terror watch news with TEA parties is just a form of intimidation."
"We are not letting the ball fall off the table, we are picking it up and running, and no more spreading of wealth, corruptDC"
"Barry Soetoro is his legal name, not Barack Obama. His mother and grandparents were Communists. WAKE UP PPL!"
"'B.O. Smells Like Socialism' /// ha!"
"attendees, please be on your best behavior.. the government is looking for any opportunity to issue martial law"
10-4, tweeps! But short-form doesn't do your cause justice: we give the Palm D'Ork to Carolyn Hart of Free Republic, and her patriotic Tea Party Poem:
I can feel my country dying. I can feel my country dying. Can you feel the dark age coming Thank God there are those who see it clear The patriots have seen the death throes Patrick Henry would be proud of these patriots.
Can you not feel it too?
Can you feel the pain and terror
As the tyrant comes to view?
I feel it every day.
As Lady Liberty stumbles
And freedom slowly loses its way.
As it creeps across the land?
Can you feel the bright light dying
As civilization is damned? 1
Who know the time is nigh
When they must rise above their fear
And reclaim what will not die.
And have come together as one
To take responsibility
And to do what must be done 2.
And so would Thomas Paine 3.
And a Paul Revere should volunteer
To gallop his ride again
I can feel my country dying.
Can you feel the dark age coming
Thank God there are those who see it clear
The patriots have seen the death throes
Patrick Henry would be proud of these patriots.
1 Producer wanted us to end it here. But, like Harvey Milk said, ya gotta give 'em hope!
2 To be accompanied by sound of musket fire, Theme from "Deliverance."
3 Be it noted that the commie atheist Tom Paine is only there for the rhyme.
We just hope a black velvet painting version of this scene becomes commercially available before Christmas. (h/t DU.)
