Funky Friday: The Tea Party Rocks!
(June 29, 2012) The reporting on the status of our environment can be a rather depressing job. And often within that niche, politics needs to be reviewed as an entity that has the greatest influence over our planet’s wellbeing. That’s a doubly-depressing-whammy! Fortunately, we have no bridges in Samoa or I might have jumped some time ago.
Unfortunately Fridays are the worst for me. Five days straight of 24-7 attention to depressing news will do that to you. Or perhaps that should read: Seven days straight of 24-5 attention….
Either way, today was a typical funky Friday as I unenthusiastically waded through a few gloomy emails, scores of repetitive tweets and a dozen or so carbon-copy headlines. And then I came across this press release from Chairman Roy Nicholson of the Mississippi Tea Party:
“With its 5-4 ruling upholding Obamacare the US Supreme Court has joined with the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government in abandoning the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and with that ruling abandoned the People. All of us are now simply chattel of the government to be used and ordered about as they choose. The history books will mark this date as the day our constitutional republic was killed. It will now rest with We The People to decide if it will be resurrected or left to rot in the shallow grave dug for it.
Where is the weeping and wailing? Where is the anger and outrage? Do the people of the country realize what has just been stolen from them? Do the people of the world recognize that the shadow of darkness is now fallen upon them as well and that there remains no defender of their feeble freedoms? The all out oppression of all people has begun.
Those “occupiers” now controlling the three federal branches of government have joined together in rejecting all Constitutional restraint and in doing so they have severely violated their oaths to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Together they now stand as blatant usurpers of power and have reduced our constitutional republic, along with all of its freedoms, to nothing more than a dictatorial junta. Becoming a banana republic is next.
When a gang of criminals subvert legitimate government offices and seize all power to themselves without the real consent of the governed their every act and edict is of itself illegal and is outside the bounds of the Rule of Law. In such cases submission is treason. Treason against the Constitution and the valid legitimate government of the nation to which we have pledged our allegiance for years. To resist by all means that are right in the eyes of God is not rebellion or insurrection, it is patriotic resistance to invasion.
May all of us fall on our faces before the Heavenly Judge, repent of our sins, and humbly cry out to Him for mercy on our country. And, may godly courageous leaders rise up in His wisdom and power to lead us in displacing the criminal invaders from their seats and restore our constitutional republic.
Even Jon Stewart couldn’t come up with this kind of stuff!
I was on the floor in stitches. I always viewed the Tea Party as humorless group, much less having the cross-generational savvy to engage in political satire. Of course one should understand my previous prejudice, having to watch news clips of Michelle Bachman, who says she’s a Tea Party supporter but obviously doesn’t share the same hilarious sense of humor.
So, on this particular Funky Friday and just as I was about to grab a stout rope and look for a tall tree, the Tea Party came to my rescue. Imagine that!
