Progressives' and Socialists' Hateful Invective

You may have noticed Socialist Democrats, so-called "Progressives", using the term "tea-baggers" to refer to the grass-roots protests against the massive government intervention in our economy led by Obama, Pelosi and Reid.
The actual name these protesters have taken on is "Tea Party" - as in, the Boston Tea Party.
"Tea-bagger" is quite a different thing.
According to WikiPedia, "Teabagging is a slang term for the act of a man placing his scrotum in the mouth[1] or on or around the face (including the top of the head) of another person, often in a repeated in-and-out motion as in irrumatio. The practice resembles dipping a tea bag into a cup of tea." This kind of base insult is unprecedented in our nation's political discourse.
This is the hateful disdain progressives feel for people exercising their rights to petition, to assemble, and to speak. This is the bile that Democrats are spewing against anyone who opposes their Glorious Leade…

Some are more equal than others

The out-of-control Congress on a runaway mission to implement so-called "health-care reform" at any cost has over the past few weeks demonstrated a complete disregard for the Constitution. In particular, the concepts of equal protection under the law and federalism are being completely run over by the Obama-Pelosi-Reid cabal.
First, everyone knows about the Cornhusker Kickback - special deals whereby Nebraska gets a free ride on Medicaid increased which will be paid by the Federal Government. Every other state in the nation, however, gets no such deal. The Cornhusker Kickback was a cynical payoff to get Ben Nelson's vote for the Senate bill. Yet many state Attorneys General have stood up to say this provision is unconstitutional.
Second, just announced today: A senior Democratic official speaking on background told Fox News that the threshold for exemption would be raised from $23,000 to $24,000 per family but would remain the same at $8,500 for singles with high-value plan…

Socialists hate Big Everything except Big Government

Whenever socialists want to attack a business enterprise they don't like, all they have to do is Go Large. Make it Big.
Big Oil. Big Coal. Big Insurance. Big Pharma.
To a Democrat socialist, putting "Big" in front of anything is tantamount to declaring that object an evil of such magnitude that nobody would dare to disagree with them on it. (A variation of the argument from intimidation).
This is a Big Pile of ****, because they certainly don't seem to object to Big Government. Only Big business is evil, Big Government is ... well, something else.
This tells you everything you need to know about the Democrat/socialist philosophy:
Big companies get big and stay big by providing - through mutually beneficial, voluntary trade - what their customers want. To a socialist, this is evil.
Big Government gets big and stays big by mercilessly taxing its citizens, generally against their will, for the benefit of special interests, in order to buy votes. To a socialist, this is good.
