Samuel-Warde.com (http://samuel-warde.com/2012/05/the-dirty-dozen-12-signs-you-might-be-a-member-of-the-tea-party/)

1. You think Minimum Wage created unemployment:

“If we took away the minimum wage-if conceivably it was gone-we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level.” —Michele Bachmann

2. You believe gay marriage is a threat to national security:

”Isn’t that the ultimate homeland security, standing up and defending marriage?” —Rick Santorum on supporting a Constitutional Amendment banning gay marriage

3. You think the ’60s caused AIDS:

We had the 60s sexual revolution, and now people are dying of AIDS.” —Christine O’Donnell

4. You think the liberal media is the greatest threat to America:

”The greatest threat to America is not necessarily a recession or even another terrorist attack. The greatest threat to America is a liberal media bias.” —Rep. Lamar Smith

5. You think science supports Intelligent Design:

“There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design.” – Michele Bachmann

6. You don’t believe in global warming:

“I absolutely do not believe in the science of man-caused climate change. It’s not proven by any stretch of the imagination…It’s far more likely that it’s just sunspot activity or just something in the geologic eons of time. Excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere ‘gets sucked down by trees and helps the trees grow.”’ – Ron Johnson

7. You believe carbon dioxide is safe:

”Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.” —Rep. Michelle Bachmann

11. You don’t believe geography is important:

12. You don’t think American History is important:

“He who warned uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed.” —Sarah Palin

Tea Party member here. I think the items you list are in the mainstream and only lefties consider them extreme.

LMFAO! Funniest post in years!
I especially enjoyed you agreeing with nos. 8-12.

Please don't ever call anyone else dumb again.
I imagine even larry wilson is embarrassed at your response.

Hey, I could add a few...

Reagan, "Trees cause pollution"

Falwell "9/11 was God's punishment"

The Donald: "...and many, many of the people in Hawaii say that the birth certificate is a fake, and his grand mother said he was born right there, and his mother never even went to a hospital...and NOBODY knew this man, NOBODY!
AND....I have gorgeous hair." /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Mitsey: "The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!"

Boehner, " Boo hoo, boo hoo, boo hoo, where are the jobs? boo hoo, boo hoo, boo hoo...."


Palin: If if the Russians rare their ugly heads, where do they go, it's ALAAAAAAAAAAAAASKA, we're just across the water....I can see ALAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASKA from..... my poutie bottom lip!"

" I like being able to fire people who work for me...WHILE ANN IS riding her two caddies up and down, and up and down, in our new fifty thousand dollar car elevator, and our illegals are dong the yard work"

Rick Perry: "oops"

And then, here's my all time favorite stupid Tea Party quote....


"Do you feel like a big boy now that you get to use those "grown up words"? It looks juvenile. Besides that, customers do not create, that is the reason why they are called consumers. I am well aware of the role each group plays in the economy but the fact is customers do not create anything other than demand and demand cannot be there if the product was not there in the first place, which it cannot be there unless someone with some money fronted a business and hired people to perform the job to create that good or service to be sold.
