Is Riverdaughter A Closeted Tea Partier?

No, seriously.

Check out her latest:

Then there was a new Poll Tax that was used to raise revenue for new wars. Ahhh, the military industrial complex of the middle ages. Some things never change. The tax was harsher on some peasants than others. Women were especially hard hit for some reason, regardless of their employment status or hardships. The King’s ministers probably just eliminated some deductions and futzed with the cost of living adjustments or something. They probably had their own Bowles-Simpson commission.

So, the peasants revolted.


Oh, look! Tim Geithner is telling us that we’re going to get nailed again. Isn’t it swell that those of us who have given up a good portion of our skins are now going to be completely flayed? Remind me to review how much in income taxes and social security taxes I’ve paid in the past 10 years. I think we all need to pull out our tax returns and report on this. Why should my kid be penalized by these spending cuts after the decades of taxes I have paid into my social insurance policies and all of the other things I expected from my hard earned money?

How come we paid so much money and have so little control over how it gets spent? Why can’t we decide to spend that money on *ourselves* and not some stupid war or a giant border fence or Alabama? Why am I, a New Jerseyan, spending so much money per year on states in the south who insist on electing selfish, aristocratic hardasses to Congress? Why am I forced to participate in my own oppression? Will someone answer me that?

That sure sounds a lot like Tea Party rhetoric to me. She is also big on populism. Is there secretly a Tea Partier hidden inside of Riverdaughter, yearning to breathe free? That sure would explain her over-the-top hatred of that group. After all, the worst homophobes are gays in denial of their sexuality.

Go for it Kim, let your Gadsden Flag fly!

    LOL! I hear her governor is making noises about higher state taxes to assist those affected by the super storm, too. Will she respond the same way about that?

    Inner tea partier……you crack me up, myiq!

    I’m willing to bet a majority fo Americans are Tea Partiers who have not realized it yet. 😀

    I saw her post today and was recalling Gov. Susanna Martinez’s convention speech:

    “Damn, we’re Republicans”

    She would NEVER admit it…. But it’s obvious most people really don’t agree 100% with their tribe…. They just do what the tribe tells them 100% of the time… And that means never acknowledging the other tribes guy have a few good points.

    I try not to disparage women when I post but this pos has no redeeming value.

    I am glad that people spoke out and she was put on unpaid leave

    Yup! And why do pro-life Americans have to see their tax money go to subsidize Planned Parenthood? Or to a Solyndra exec’s golden parachute?

      Sounds like “The government doesn’t have a taxing problem, it’s got a spending problem.”

      Know which one of the candidates said that this last election cycle (hint: it wasn’t Obama).

        But he gave a woman cancer!!!!!!!!!!

        • angienc says:

          Seriously the left can’t stop talking about Mitt — some guy snapped a photo of him pumping gas in La Jolla & it was an AP/Yahoo headline & the vile progs were *still* bashing him (of course that *was* Obama’s entire campaign platform) along the lines of “I’m surprised he didn’t get a Mexican to do it for him” –basically exposing their ignorance about Romney but at the same time it makes me worry about him — Obama ginned up so much hatred toward the man & his supporters aren’t stable to begin with (with tenuous grasps on reality as well) that I hope he keeps himself safe.


        • votermom says:

          he did look tired in that photo

        • angienc says:

          Yes he did & the guy who took the picture with his cell phone & posted it to (who,btw,has been elevated to “photographer” in the AP story) wrote Romney looked “washed up” but later he clarified that he meant to write “worn out” in his original post, not “washed up.” Of course, the AP story ran with the initial “washed up” description.

          Fucking assholes. I’ve been stunned that they’ve been allowed to do what they’ve done to a decent man like Romney who doesn’t have a hint of scandal in his personal life & while very fortunate financially has been extremely generous with his time & money to those less fortunate. But it dawned on me today when I saw something on “butt chugging” on the internet — we live in a society that not only has “butt chugging” being practiced, it is named as such & people discuss it publicly.

          A guy like Romney didn’t really have a chance against a vile,petty little punk like Obama.

    RD isn’t the only one. Long time Dem operative Susan Estrich had the nerve to put her name on this today with a straight face:

    The Mandate to Raise Taxes on the “Rich”
    Within days of winning the election, President Obama announced that his victory gave him a mandate to raise taxes on the “rich.”

    Come again? This was a two-and-a-half-point election. It reflected a painfully divided electorate. The only mandate I saw was to unite a divided country.

    [edit — here’s a lot of horseshit lies about WaronWomen etc)

    I did not vote for Obama because I think I am paying too little in taxes.

    Like many people I know, I am “rich” by Obama’s standards.

    [edit — here’s a bunch of horseshit trying to define “rich rich” from “Obama standards rich” completely ignoring things like difference between capital gains taxes on earned income taxes]

    And frankly, I don’t think I’m alone. As a matter of fact, on this one, I don’t think 51 percent of all Americans are to my “left” — if that’s how you define the higher tax constituency.

    Obama needs to be very careful. Yes, he was re-elected. But so were all those folks who blocked the extension of the Bush tax cuts if they excluded individuals and small businesses who make enough money to qualify as rich — but not enough to send their kids to college, or help their aging parents, or buy a home in a decent neighborhood.

    We need to avoid going over the fiscal cliff. But Obama must also avoid the political cliff.

    One of the amazing things about this country is that the middle class doesn’t hate the rich. We are not a society divided by economic castes. Yes, there are real issues as the gap between the top and the middle, between CEOs and those in good but not great jobs, grows. But beginning a new term with what will look to many like a class war is not the way to fulfill the real mandate of this election, which is to bring us together, not turn us against each other.

    Seriously, the entire thing is at once so delusional about the campaign Obama ran (nothing but fear, division & class warfare with promises to get “revenge” on those “rich” who need to “pay their fair share”) and so intellectually dishonest that it’s breathtaking.

    Everyone thinks they are paying enough in income taxes except those who don’t pay taxes!! The only difference is the GOP is honest about it, while the Dems count on the GOP “obstructing” them so they can tell their base “we wanted to tax the rich,but those damn Rethuglicans wouldn’t let us.”

    For the love of God, Romney is proved right again (47% tape) — not that they’ll ever acknowledge it.

    Half of America has no idea how badly they blew this opportunity on 11/6.

    Here’s the scary truth. The taxes will be on the poor and the middle class. OK, first forget the surface definition of taxes. Just think about how much money goes in your pocket that you can spend. The rest is taxes. The take home money you can spend has been going down every year. So “taxes” have been going up.

    Now if we continue with obamacare and spending levels and borrowing levels, the value of the dollar will go down. Or possibly we get inflation or even hyperinflation. Either way, what you can buy with that dollar will be less. Effectively higher taxes.

    Both parties have been playing this game. The tea party noticed and made noise. They don’t like either Bush or Obama for the bailouts and spending and taxing. OWS supported the establishment (Obama and Democrats) but were protesting… the establishment. Hence not getting anywhere. People are noticing, but don’t quite know what to do. Bottom line, neither party is your friend. If people keep getting sucked into the false choice between the two parties, they won’t get anywhere. Vote them all out. Always. At least we’ll throw wrenches in the works.

    You aren’t forced. You’re a willing volunteer.

    • myiq2xu says:

      If you voted for anybody but Mitt Romney (or didn’t vote) then you are either a supporter or an enabler of everything Obama does during the next four years.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Four years ago you could claim ignorance. Not this time.

      • elliesmom says:


      • angienc says:


        Everyone who didn’t vote for Romney *owns* this.

        I actually think the reason the GOP has been so quick to jump on the “kill Romney” bandwagon is because they are relieved he lost — they realized he meant what he was saying about tax reform,etc and they sure as hell didn’t want that.

        Effing Romney — he was going to ruin it for *everybody.*
