OK, I admit it, I was a little late to the Facebook and Twitter revolution. The whole social networking thing struck me as a great suckage of time - and while that's largely proven to be true in the last few months since I've come on board - I've also discovered what a great way it is to learn really whacky stuff about people you barely know.
Case in point: From one of my Republican Facebook "friends" I learned that Republicans all over the country are finally shaking off the cobwebs and rising from their barcaloungers to mount a protest the likes of which this country has never seen.
Wingnut populist of the nation united yesterday for a mass action of tea parties that shook the government to its knees. OK, its ankles.The results? Not so impressive.Let's see...The Pittsburgh party was canceled due to rain. A whopping 79 people showed up today in Jacksonville, FL. Looks like maybe over a dozen showed up in Asheville, NC. Almost 10 people made it to the Buffalo, NY, protest. About 100 people throughout all of Los Angeles came out to Santa Monica Pier. All of about 300 people made it out throughout the entirety of Atlanta. 250 made it out to Dallas for the tea party there. 150 in Lansing. Looks like about 100 went to watch the Joe the Plumber and Michelle Malkin teabag fest in D.C. (if you had to retch, it's not my fault, just your dirty, dirty mind...)
But hey, if you're disappointed you missed the fun, don't worry! Our very own local wingnuts, KFI's "shock jock jihadists" John and Ken will be sponsoring something a little spicier for us folks in California:
On Saturday, March 7th, there will be a massive anti-tax rally at the Slide Bar Cafe in Fullertn. We are protesting the recent passage of the largest single tax increase in any state in the 232 1/2 year saga of these fruited plains by the Effeminator formerly known as the Governator formerly known as the Terminator formerly known as a steroid-injecting, pot-smoking, tittie-groping, knuckle-dragging "forehead".Are you going to let this thick-skulled Austrialopithecus run you and your loved ones out of the greatest state in the greatest nation in the history of mankind? HELL NO! Neither will we suffer the continued tyranny of his cronies - especially those in the Republican Party - who either voted for or were complicit in this steaming horse turd of a budget.This is only the first of many.ARE YOU READY FOR THE REVOLUTION?P.S. Homeless and illegal alien riff-raff welcome.
It's amazing what you can learn on Facebook.
