AATTP opposes the Tea Party/GOP ideology and politics, and we fight to expose them and defeat them at ballot boxes everywhere, and in the market-place of ideas. We support freedom and equal rights for all Americans. We support income equality and closing the gap between ultra-rich and poor. We believe that a strong vibrant middle-class is essential to a thriving economy. We believe in a strong social safety net, and oppose any cuts to social programs, or education – but rather, we wish to see them expanded and funded fully – BEFORE tax cuts are given to the wealthy and corporations.
We reject the idea of Trickle-Down and Austrian economics. We want all tax breaks for the ultra-rich to expire. We demand corporations pay their taxes and we want all government subsidies to corporations raking in record profits to stop. Corporations are not people. We want money out of politics. We believe that diplomacy is the first step toward peace, and we support a pragmatic, and even-handed foreign policy. War is the last resort. We believe the American People should come first, in terms of policy and legislation: especially the young, elderly, weak, sick, vulnerable, marginalized, and exploited.
The hatred, division, virulent, unpredictable anger, violent threats and posturing by the Tea-Baggers present a real danger to the lives of President Obama, his family, his administration, Congressional Democrats and liberals and progressives of all stripes. Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist-fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process – and organizing together to defeat Tea Party/GOP candidates on the ballot everywhere. We support the Occupy movement. WE ARE THE 99%. WE ARE AATTP!
Thanks for all of the comments, plus ones, shares, and everything else. It's been fun.
In 1974, a long forgotten study was published in the Washington Post that purported to show that THC “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36%.”
Jimmy Kimmel is more than just another late night comedian; he’s tackled serious issues before, and he’s done it again with a new mock PSA featuring real doctors that rip into the anti-vaxx idiots.
He was later forced to backpedal, but he remained unrepentant:
In a new example of the incoherent insanity that comes out of the Texas extreme pro-life camp, a GOP lawmaker has proposed assigning lawyers to fetuses whose mothers are brain dead.
We can only hope that Shane is a real person and that somewhere out there, he is entertaining his co-workers and customers while narrowly avoiding the wrath of management.
