  1. Woot! Canucks were such pansies and dirty players was good to see Bruins finally pull it out in the end!

  2. Canucks were the better team.

    But not tonight.

    The Bruins won the night, and deserved the Cup.

    I think USWep will party until he is drunk, so don’t expect many coherent posts beyond another hour from now 😉

  3. I have to give a salute to the Canuck fans.

    They cheered the Bruins as they lifted the Cup – not as loudly if it were their team – but loud enough to give the Bruins a sense they won the cup “at home”.

  4. Buck the Wala says:

    I don’t know, to me it’s never a good thing when Boston wins at anything…

    But they did play a good game. Man that was tough to say!

    • Mathius™ says:

      So now you live in Jersey and give Boston credit for playing a good game…

      Who are you? What have you done with the guy I was roommates with?

      Matt S.? Is that you?

      • Buck the Wala says:

        Well they did play a good game. That doesn’t mean I’m happy about it. But really, who cares about hockey anyway!?

  5. Congrats USW! The Red Wings decided to spread the wealth for a while. 🙂

  6. What’s hockey? 🙂

    • Mathius™ says:

      Hockey is a sport in which players slide stones across a sheet of ice towards a target area. It is related to bowls, boule and shuffleboard.

      Two teams, each of four players, take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones, also called “rocks”, across the ice curling sheet towards the “house,” a circular target marked on the ice. Each team has eight stones. The purpose is to accumulate the highest score for a game, points being scored for the stones resting closest to the center of the house at the conclusion of each end, which is completed when both teams have thrown all of their stones. A game may consist of ten or eight ends.

      The blower can induce a curved path by causing the stone to slowly turn as it slides, and the path of the rock may be further influenced by two sweepers with brooms who accompany it as it slides down the sheet, using the brooms to alter the state of the ice in front of the stone.

      Does this help, D?

      • Oh…..I thought it was about a bunch of over paid jocks skating around on ice beating the crap outta each other over some little black thing that appears to be very elusive. When the little black thing escapes and finds the safety of the net, some black and white striped guy grabs it, throws it in this painted circle in the middle of the ice again and they all start beating the crap outta each other and the little black thing gets thrown around and tries to get away while everyone is whacking it with curved sticks (where are the dems now while this little black thing gets the crap beat outta it). It could be that they are all encircled behind this glass like structure yelling and screaming and cheering and hollering when someone gets slammed into the boards or eats one of the curved sticks. Sometimes there is something reminiscent of a Congressional meeting when they all meet in the middle and throw off their gloves and grab shirts and jersey’s and pull them over their heads while trying to dislodge the pearly whites from their opponents. These striped guys just sorta sit around and watch until they get tired and acting out of some form of misbegotten bravery now steps in to separate them….but when they turn their backs…it starts all over again.

        But, perhaps I was mistaken.

        (btw..@ USW..go Bruins)

    How bout them Pirates, above .500 this late in the season for the first time since 1999? The losing streak might end at 18 seasons.

    Riots in Vancouver after hockey loss
    Rick Moran, American Thinker

    Disappointed Vancouver fans rioted in the central part of the city last night after their hockey team lost a pivotal game 7 in the championship finals.

    ESPN:

    Tear gas mingled with the stench of acrid smoke and stale beer as riot police, truncheons drawn, moved in to quell the violence, pushing crowds away from the burning cars.

    Later, police cars also were set on fire. At one point, police were using flash-bangs — grenades that are designed to distract and disorient, rather than injure — to try to break up the mob.

    “This isn’t what the Canucks are about,” said Chad McMillan, 31, a Vancouver resident and Canucks fan. “This isn’t what their fans are about. This isn’t what this city is about.”

    […]

    At a Bay store, looters were seen grabbing T-shirts and anything else they could get their hands on. Young women were seen escaping with MAC cosmetics, with one carrying out part of a mannequin. The landmark building was filling with smoke as people, their faces covered in bandannas, continued the violence.

    American cities have largely learned to deal with this sort of post game violence. The only answer is massive, visible police presence and preventing crowds from congregating. Isolated incidents still happen in the US after championship games – the contrast with the crowds in victorious Boston is instructive – but the lessons learned from what happened in cities like Detroit from the early 1990’s have been absorbed and post game celebrations here rarely get out of hand.

    It’s fair to say that the vast majority of fans celebrated responsibly, and officers have done an excellent job of keeping order,” Elaine Driscoll, a spokeswoman for the Boston police, said early Thursday.

    Driscoll said there were no immediate reports of injuries. She said police would not have an exact count on arrests until later in the day.

    In Vancouver, disappointed fans set some cars on fire and tipped over others after their team’s loss.

    Boston Mayor Thomas Menino told WFXT-TV that he was unaware of any major damage or looting.

    Vancouver authorities appeared to acknowledge they werern’t ready for it:

    “You don’t ever hope for a situation like this,” Vancouver police Const. Jana McGuinness said. “You celebrate the good times and you prepare for the bad times and that’s exactly what we’ve done. Unfortunately, the tables have turned tonight. … We will have to sit down and evaluate exactly what happened here. It’s going to be a black mark for a very, very long time.”

    • Talk about poor losers…….

      • I doubt very much if losing the game has much to do with these types of situations. More of an excuse for the angry and violent to play and the thiefs to steal.

    Seeing as today is a casual day here at SUFA, where we are discussing things other than politics, I thought I’d drag out a list I started a while back to see how many states are represented by the good folks of this blog. The following are unclaimed:

    2 Alaska
    7 Connecticut
    8 Delaware
    9 Florida
    10 Georgia
    11 Hawaii
    12 Idaho
    13 Illinois

    Anyone want to claim ownership of one of them?

  10. The congressman steps down..What a Weiner!

    • Mathius™ says:

      Indeed. I sincerely doubt that he’d have been ousted and he probably would have won reelection anyway.

      Oh well.. wonder who will replace him.

    • Buck the Wala says:

      Maybe he’ll run in the special election — let his constituents put him back in office if it be their will…

      • Common Man says:

        Not to get things started, but the man is a wimp. He thinks he is a badass and was really important. Now he will only be remembered for being a sick and demented asshole whose last media memory will be a porn star’s lawyer quoting his twitter quotes referrencing his “package”

        The man is a total waist of flesh and shouldn’t be sucking up valuable air.

        CM

        • DisposableCarbonUnit says:

          Although Anthony Weiner has given a new definition to the term “junk mail”

        • So, what is your opinion, CM?

          • Common Man says:

            In the interest of the game being cheered here today I recommend a shoot out. Each gets a shot at the goal with the members here voting. Winner takes all.

            Matt; you are up first ….Go

            CM

            • Mathius takes the challenge…..looks over the field……sizes it up……takes a looong pull at the 44 oz Red Bull clutched in his hand….gets a sly grin on his face as his target is clearly in sight…..calculating………………………..SUDDENLY, the RB kicks is….he shoots…he………he………..awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww JUST a bit outside.

              • Mathius™ says:

                That’s not really fair.. after such a long pull, I was seeing double and had to guess which target was the real one.. I may have picked wrong, it was a bullseye though the one that wasn’t there.

      • Good morning, counselor……would that not be a hoot? They won’t do it…but it would be something to see what everyone would say if they did.

        How are you, sir. I know you do not want me to keep this wonderful summer weather to myself, so, I am sending you some. We have a little 106 left over from yesterday…no charge and free delivery.

        • Mathius™ says:

          Send it my way, please.

          Just a little further north.

        • Buck the Wala says:

          Let me put it this way — I would be surprised if this is the end of his political career.

          • Buck the Wala says:

            And please feel free to keep your 106 heat. Today is a perfect 85!

          • Mathius™ says:

            Maybe he can offer Obama a primary challenge.. then Andy Card can get that debate he inexplicably seems to think should be happening amongst Democrats.

            • Buck the Wala says:

              Though to be fair to Andy Card it would be nice to see a Democratic debate…

              wow, ‘…to be fair to Andy Card…’, maybe I am turning into MS….shudder…

              • We got him Matt….

              • Mathius™ says:

                To be fair to Andy Card, he is a complete tool who cynically tried to pass it off as if a debate with an incumbent is something that normally happens and that the Democrats are trying to pull a fast one by not holding one.

                As if, while he worked for Bush, Bush held any debates from the position of incumbent. HA.

                Jackass! (Card, not Buck)

                But wait for it… wait for it… wait for it.. it’s only a matter of time before some “serious” media types (who everyone here believes are in the tank for Obama) start pushing the idea.

              • Buck the Wala says:

                Well lets not go crazy here. I’m sure Mathius would love to share some of that Red Bull stuff with me to get me back on track…

              • Mark it on the calendar..I agree with Buck. There should be debates on both sides for every election.

                I bet one gold buffalo that Obama would lose a debate to a true democrat

              • Buck the Wala says:

                Anita, you have a gold buffalo!? Amazing!

              • Mathius™ says:

                What do you feed a gold buffalo?

                When you take it on a walk, do you have to pick up, er, golden nuggets?

              • Don’t be hatin fellas 🙂

              • DisposableCarbonUnit says:

                Is Anita related to Ted Nugent?

              • Mathius™ says:

                I wonder what golden buffalo wings taste like..

                I wonder what they cost..

    • Heard CNN is already in talks to have him join their team…..

      Show could be called, “LIVE from New York – The WeinerSpitzer Show”

  11. Murphy's Law says:

    Congrats to the Bruins!!…..and though it is 4 days after the fact, congrats also to the Mavs!! I loved watching them put away LeBron James and the Heat!

    The parade is this morning, in fact it is starting right about now in downtown Dallas, and will run right by the offices where I work. Glad I don’t have to be there today….. 🙂

    Murf

    • What are the Mavs?

      • You don’t do too much more than high school football do you Colonel?

      • Mathius™ says:

        I think it was a typo – he meant to say Marlins.

      • Wait…..Mavs…that professional basketball team in my beloved State of Texas…..another sport where a bunch of overpaid jocks get in this little arena with apparently the same yelling crowd that was at the hockey game….bouncing a bigger ball around trying to get it in a basket that is set ridiculously high. It appears that there is another set of black and white striped guys running up and down trying to get everyone to stop running so they can get that ball away from them. (Could it be the SAME striped guys from the hockey game?) But when they get it away from them they hand it right back and it starts all over again. Then it appears that when someone gets a little rough, they blow this whistle and everyone stops and some guy gets to pitch this ball in this hoopy thing with no interference (how fair is that)..must be a democrat thing..(Take something that someone has gives it to another guy so he can get a reward for something that wasn’t his to start with). But then, the guy throws at this hoopy thing and it starts yet again.

        (btw…@ Murf…go Mavs)

  12. DisposableCarbonUnit says:

    OK…Enjoy it USWeapon! (You don’t know how much that hurts)

    You may all now make fun of Canadians and hockey for only 24 hours…then we all write letters to the editors of your local papers!

    A national congratulations from SUFA’s token foreigner…DCU

  13. DisposableCarbonUnit says:

    In special recognition of one Bruin, I would like to note that Tomas Kaberle gets his first Cup after being traded from the hellhole in Toronto where he worked for years with a bunch of useless tools.

  14. Mathius™ says:

    What’s a state?
    Why do I have to follow the lines you draw on map – I’d rather use the ones I drew on my map.
    – Black Flag

    Tangential question.

    How much land can one person own? If I am the first human to ever set foot on Australia, can I claim the whole continent? If I settle down and build a house somewhere, how can I determine the extent of my claim?

    Is it how much area I can build a fence around? How much land I can till? How much land I can defend?

    Just curious.

    Can you just share your general thoughts and we’ll go from there?

    • Crap, Mathius……why get him started again? You are evil.

    • BlackFlag says:

      Mathius,

      How much land can one person own?

      As much as he wants.

      If I am the first human to ever set foot on Australia, can I claim the whole continent?

      That is what precisely what the Crown of England did.

      If I settle down and build a house somewhere, how can I determine the extent of my claim?

      It is as far as you can determine it is, until you reach some one else’s claim

      Is it how much area I can build a fence around?

      Depends on how much fencing you own.

      How much land I can till?

      As much of your land as you can till before you need to plant.

      How much land I can defend?

      How big is your army?

  15. Good article-I always find the opinions of immigrants from non-free countries interesting and revealing.

    Confession of a Reluctant Tea-Partier
    By Luba Sindler

    In the Soviet Union any mass expression of public sentiment was by definition a fraud. To participate in a demonstration of any kind meant a complete waste of a perfectly good day. All organizations got their quotas to provide a certain amount of bodies to march through the town celebrating state holidays. Being a child was no excuse — I remember taking part in an annual May Day demonstration as a 10-year-old member of an ice-skating girls’ group. The sacred duty of any self-respecting citizen was to avoid being drafted at all costs. I could not imagine that intelligent people could spend time and energy coming to a rally of their own free will.

    My late and very much missed father used to say: “First, you have to know why you want to leave the old country, and only then to decide why you want to settle in a new one.” Boy, did we know the first part! Our difficult journey to America started in 1978 and ended in 1987 — nine long years of being “refuseniks,” surviving persecution with humor and general youthful light-heartedness. There was no time or opportunity to follow the second part of my father’s advice.

    My family came to the United States the day before the Thanksgiving of 1987. Being intellectually curious, I immediately began wondering how this country functions and what makes the United States the envy of the world (don’t believe all that criticism from outside — it’s mostly ignorance). As a confirmed bookworm I started reading everything in sight from the Constitution and Federalist Papers to the New York Times to National Review by way of the Economist and the Village Voice. My English improved dramatically but my respect for the media evaporated. However, I got some basic knowledge of American institutions.

    My husband and I applied for US citizenship the day we became eligible. I think my examining officer got the shock of his life when during the interview I recited the Bill of Rights, named all Supreme Court justices and added the names of all elected officials of the state including our hapless congressman. Talk about useless knowledge! After that we proudly voted in every election, but the idea of venturing a political opinion never crossed my mind (an unfortunate result of being brought up in a totalitarian society where keeping your mouth shut is a basic rule of survival). There was something unseemly in proclaiming my deep love and appreciation of America for all to hear.

    When candidate Obama showed up, I realized that I had heard his typical stump speech every single day of my old Soviet life from big and small Communist party bosses — the same structure, the same cadences, the same bogeymen, the same demagoguery, the same targets. The American people had no defense against this rhetoric. The result of the elections was totally predictable. To me it was a “Back to the Future” moment.

    Imagine you are having a terrible nightmare. Just as you are about to suffer torture or certain death, you wake up and realize the sun is shining, your family is peacefully sleeping, and everything is in place. After enjoying a few blissful moments, you turn your head and see that hideous monster from your dream coming after you for real. This image described the trajectory of my life perfectly. Running from Communism, finding the safe haven and a new life, and now to have the same wrecking crew coming even here?

    In February or March of 2009 my husband, two friends, and I went to the first New York City Tea Party in front of City Hall — more out of helplessness than anything else. The signs were great and funny, including a board showing odious Senator Schumer as Marie Antoinette. When a man next to me remarked on the steadfast conservatism of the Cuban-American community, I mentioned the huge Russian contingent right here in New York City as an equally conservative bloc. He looked at me like I was from outer space.

    I attended a few more Tea Parties in our area (my husband dropped out, not believing in lost causes) just to support a worthy idea, not to expect any tangible result. Then we found out about a big march on Washington on September 12, 2009 and decided to give it a try. The march was already in progress when five of us emerged from a downtown metro station and joined in our first protest action.

    The atmosphere was incredible. Complete strangers were talking to each other, taking pictures of thousands of funny posters, smiling, and feeling as one. Contrary to popular opinion outside the United States, here was an ample proof that Americans have a great sense of humor. There were so many people that it was not really possible to see, let alone really hear the speakers. But nobody cared. People were just expressing their opinions in a typical American fashion, loud and clear.

    I felt as if I had come home. Or, to paraphrase our First Lady, for the first time in my life I felt like a real, full-blooded, free American. It was glorious.

    • There is a valuable lesson to be learned from immigrants such as this author.

      • Brought tears to my eyes-I know we aren’t perfect but we have something special in this country and damn it people are throwing it away-based on some pipe dream that they can make things fair and equal for everyone. There are many people in this country who have come from other countries and I have read many articles where they are trying to warn us. People need to listen-instead of thinking they can use reason to make the lessons learned from history moot. That goes for the totally free anarchist and the far left can’t find a stopping point and/or don’t believe there should be one, for taking away our freedoms socialist nuts.

        • Mathius™ says:

          It’s odd.. the Russian immigrant I work with every day seems to think that things here are just fine and that we’re not in any danger of becoming communists..

          • There are always people who live in denial of what is happening right before their eyes 🙂 besides I didn’t say we were in immanent danger of becoming communistic-just too socialistic for much freedom to survive. For someone who believes so much in the right of choice-it seems like you would be able to see that ability going away with your ability to control your finances, your business and even your children being decided by the state- if you do not have freedom when it comes to the financial which is your life line, you don’t have any freedom. Lets give everyone the freedom to do drugs, have sex in the streets, kill their babies while taking away control of anything that actually gives them the finances to make their own decisions. Great I can be high and immoral while I go broke. Sounds like the kind of country I want to live in. NOT

            • Actually this may explain Mathius (Buck too) and why they don’t understand what we are talking about when we discuss loss of freedoms. If it’s all you’ve ever known….

              Land of the Free? New York and California come out at the bottom of individual freedoms study

              http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2003910/New-York-New-Jersey-California-come-individual-freedoms-study.html

              • Good point. With each generation more of the BS is accepted as the right way. And the Federal government has become the police force for making us citizens fall in line whether we like it or not. I see no way around majority vote and so lets strive for state rights at the very least as the dominate power-I think these last words might be a direct steal from Plainlyspoken-but I don’t think he will mind. 🙂

  16. Murphy's Law says:

    Hope it’s ok if I do a little hijack here…..I have a garden for the first time ever, and it is producing bountiful amounts of tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, cucumbers, and yellow squash. I have never canned anything before, and have been researching on the net for pressure canners and other necessary equipment. Anyone have any advice?

    • Eat.

      • Murphy's Law says:

        Smartass.

        But we already knew that.

        🙂 🙂 🙂

      • That’s helpful 🙂 large pressure cooker-mason jars and lids and some kind of sealing wax-not helpful either but it is the extent of my knowledge 🙂 Course I have my mother in law to teach me -and with the way the world is going I think I better go have a talk with her.

        • Murphy's Law says:

          Thanks, VH….but more specifically, I am seeing Presto 23 qt pressure canners for about $75 on Amazon, and another I can’t remember the brand, same size, for almost $200. The Presto’s have some (very few, actually) negative reviews concerning blowing up on the stove even when the directions are followed to a T. The more expensive one, never a blow up, and it also doesn’t need a rubber gasket which is hard to find when it inevitably needs replacing, AND it is American made. So I wonder if anyone here swears by one or the other…..and I do know that no matter which one I buy, I will need to take the pressure gauge to my county extension office to have it checked for accuracy before I use it. I know some people here are quite experienced at home canning, so I was hoping for their input. Do you know which one your mother-in-law uses?

          Murf

          • Yes I do because she gave it too me (she has gotten old enough that she doesn’t can anymore) it is a Presto Deluxe Pressure Cooker Canner-do not know how old it is-but I suspect pretty old and it still works well.

          • Bama dad says:

            Murf
            We have three 23 quart canners that we use. None are the expensive models and they do not have pressure gauges on them. Pressure is controlled by a weighted rocker on the top, the more weight, the more pressure. I like the rockers to regulate the pressure because they keep it constant and you do not have to watch them as closely. I am at work so I can’t give you the names or model numbers of the ones we own but will look when I get home this afternoon. We can about 250-300 quarts of fruits and vegetables every year and have never had a problem with any of our canners. If you want ask USW to send you my email address and we will share our canning information with you.

          • gmanfortruth says:

            Murf,

            If you invest in a pressure canner, get a good one. We have used one for years and they do the job, our came with a book and directions for just about everything. Ours is an All American model 915, made in Wisconsin. We’ve canned just about everything with it.

    • That’s GMan’s department

    • Common Man says:

      Murphy;

      Get on the interenet and type in “Mason Jars” and you will find all kinds of information. I too grow a lot of peppers and would recommend that you let some of the jalapeno’s ripen on the vine. They will be a beautiful red and get much sweeter.

      CM

  17. @ Mathis…..your boss called and asked if you had anything better to do than exchange wise ass comments on a slow day….I told him NO….absolutely not. He did not seem amused. Did I do wrong?

    • PS. I did give him BF’s number as a return number. I figure by the time BF finished a 1,000 word dialogue, he would give up.

    • Mathius™ says:

      Did you tell him that this is what happens when 3/4 of the office takes the day off and he decides to go on a two hour lunch break on a (very rare) slow day? Did you tell him that this is what happens when my reward for working hard is that I get given more work, but no appreciation and certainly no more money? Did you explain to him that being treated like an interchangeable cog for two years tends to make me resent my employer? Did you explain to him how the only thing that keeps me sane during the work day is SUFA and how, if it were ever blocked, I’d probably wind up in the local clock tower? Did you tell him that even though he’s a nice enough guy, he’s too much of a pushover to his jackass boss that it totally wrecks my job when he randomly commits me to a new project everyday?

      I need a grog.

      • I simply told him that if he wanted a rhetorical answer, then talk to our mouthpiece. (BF)…Then I told him that he better leave you alone lest he feel the wrath of 1,000 Raptors eating his flesh one millimeter at a time…while he was sober. I then told him, that we, at SUFA, enjoyed you entertainment and that if he wanted to continue to bother you, we would “taunt him yet a second time”. (One Raptor point for the origin of quote). If that did not work I told him to watch for a Pirate Ship sailing directly to his door step, a platoon of Para- raptors on his roof top, and the dreaded Mako-White rapto shark with GPS guided laser mounts. Then I told him to give you a 100% raise, 180 days paid vacation, unlimited SUFA time, and to stay the hell out of your office. As a finale, I told him that if he still persisted….I woukd have BF talk to him a second time while singing ” I’m Henry the 8th I am” verses till the break of the next day. Too strong?

        • Mathius™ says:

          Sounds perfect. When he gets back from his two-hour lunch, I will see what he thinks about your ultimatum.

          But nobody deserves to have to talk to BF while singing “Henry the 8th I Am!”.. that’s just cruel.

          • The Army spent millions teaching me how to be cruel….and that was my nice side. I can get really ugly…..I can bring Charlie in on this.

  18. What the hell….I must have pissed off USW today….My avatar is now missing. SIGH !!!!

  19. Test..test…this is only a test. If this were an actual emergency, please tune to your local radio station….err…no wait….. by the time you got your emergency signal, I would have already taken over.

    • You may already be aware of this-noting your test-but just in case 🙂 Your name keeps changing from D13 to d13 the colonel and your avatar appears and disappears accordingly.

    Who here thinks this is a good idea?

    Ok, now who thinks that a camp designed to teach children ages 8-12 that not everything about America is good, that there are things we do that are bad and need to be corrected, or that there are religions other than monotheistic ones or that there might not be any god at all? Who thinks it would be a good idea to have kids between the ages of 8 and 12 play a staged game where the best outcome is also reached by following the directions of the counselors (ie, the government)?

    How about if they set it up to prove to children that the other children will not help them unless the counselors (ie, the government) make them contribute something? Maybe we could state the game so that 1% of the kids gets 90% of the “money” and 50% get 5% of the money, then, in subsequent rounds, the previous winners have a built-in advantage over the previous losers, and this advantage builds up until there is almost no chance to win if you are in the lower ranks. Then we make them live and eat using that money. We can demonstrate how the rich will use their “money” to get richer and serve themselves while ignoring the suffering of the “other half.” After a few days of this, we can have the counselors step in and teach the kids how the government helps to redistribute wealth to the poor and why this is such a great thing!

    Does anyone see a problem with this “camp”?

    There once was a congressman named Weiner,
    He thought pics of his weener were keener.
    Shouting, “Hell no, I won’t go!”
    Midst a media show,
    Now his weener no more will be seen’r.

        USW is going to ban us for the number of d**k jokes we’re posting on his blog today!

        • Mathius™ says:

          He can’t bad me.. I’m a liberal! There’s only like four of us and we’re the secret sauce that makes SUFA the best blog (I originally typed ‘bong’.. not sure why) on the internet.

          • DisposableCarbonUnit says:

            Go figure, a 26 year old CA/NY liberal working with other peoples’ money is thinking about a bong.

            Just about stretched my imagination to the breaking point.

        the Weiner is bad…
        now Barney knows not who to thank..
        Weiner is now promoted to Frank…

  22. DisposableCarbonUnit says:

    So I take it that Weiner is “pulling out” of Congress?

  23. They left out the military. That is the first thing wrong. The second thing wrong is you got it from “Think Progress”? (I know you can do better than this, Mathius.) Thirdly, I am no Tea Party advocate, however, the article starts out Tea Party Group,,,then reverts to organization under the Tea Party banner….then reverts back to Tea Party Group. Fourth, it quotes Ayn Rand and Jesus and Rand was an atheist and fifth but not last, how can anyone give credence to site with a companion article of Half Orcs killing Herman Cain?
