Extremist Rally

The debt-limit talks continue in Washington, but Speaker Boehner has so far held his ground on no new taxes. Good.

No to a new debt-limit and yes to a balanced budget amendment are also being pushed despite the media framing the choice as "default on our debt, or raise the limit."

Several Ohio and Kentucky Tea Party groups rallied at Speaker Boehner's office in Ohio today to support his efforts to save the country from a communist hell. Or as Reagan would say: "A thousand years of darkness."

It was a rowdy group of right wing extremism. Grandmas and Grampas, Moms and Dads, and a couple children. Each arrived with a personal letter to the Speaker which was then handed to a gentleman from the Speaker's office. Letters were collected for those who could not attend and handed over in a binder. 350 letters!

This was a once-in-a-lifetime event. When do constituents spontaneously gather to praise the actions of a congressman???

Here are the pictures of the attendees and their racist, homophobe, and swastica signs American flags:

U/T: Cincinnati Tea Party

Thanks Doug!
