RUGER SP 101 REVOLVER
The Ruger SP101® revolvers are smaller framed guns which still can handle powerful .357 Magnum cartridges. They also feature a smaller Ruger cushioned grip system with no exposed metal at the back strap for shooter comfort, the patented triple-locking cylinder mechanism that securely locks the cylinder into the frame at the front, rear, and bottom, and a stainless steel frame that has no weakening side plates.
Ruger SP101 revolvers come in spurred and spurless hammer versions and take down easily with no special tools. Ruger SP101 revolvers are best for shooters who need a smaller framed, durable, all stainless steel revolver chambered for the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge (which also permits use of .38 Special ammunition). Built as some of the smallest, most powerful, smaller frame revolvers on the market, they feature Ruger's rugged durability and are engineered for solid performance.
COMMENTARY BY HARRY GORMAN
My friend Harry is 94 years old
Years ago, when I was running my small printing and "advertising" business I had a close-up look at how the giant ad agencies worked -- and was shocked to my innocent socks.
Lying, distorting, using all kinds of "bait" to trick the public into BUYING their clients' product -- that was the only game in their plush Madison Avenue agencies.
Not all - but most.
Today, it's practically ALL. Study closely the pharmaceutical ads on TV and so many others where I see (because I know where to look) the trickery that is/are the tools of their "profession".
(I think prostitution is also called a "profession")?
I hammer some honest advertising (Years ago, a magazine or newspaper ad that just pictured a Cadillac and a headline "The Penalty of Excellence" -- which simply "said" to the reader "Here I am, a quality produce and I must maintain respect for this product by continuing its excellence". . . Or, so I saw it.
Now, even politicians are advertised to an easily manipulated "voting" public -- packaged like a jar of pickled herring, his virtues glorified (distorted) his faults, lack of experience, strange connections muted or omitted.
I don't feel well enough for a lengthy treatise about the advertising industry's ability to turn mouse into monster and vice versa, by the use of clever words, imagery and music.
Too weary for more.
LET'S ALL SURRENDER OUR WEAPONS -- YOU FIRST!
April 8, 2009
The rash of recent shooting incidents has led people who wouldn't know an AK-47 from a paintball gun to issue demands for more restrictions on guns. To be sure, it's hard to find any factor in these shootings that could be responsible -- other than the gun.
So far, this year's public multiple shootings were committed by:
-- Richard Poplawski, 23, product of a broken family, expelled from high school and dishonorably discharged from the Marines, who killed three policemen in Pittsburgh .
-- Former crack addict Jiverly Wong, 41, who told co-workers " America sucks" yet somehow was not offered a job as a speechwriter for Barack Obama. Wong blockaded his victims in a civic center in Binghamton , N.Y. , and shot as many people as he could, before killing himself.
-- Robert Stewart, 45, a three-time divorcee and high school dropout with "violent tendencies" -- according to one of his ex-wives -- who shot up the nursing home in Carthage, N.C., where his newly estranged wife worked.
-- Lovelle Mixon, 26, a paroled felon, struggling to get his life back on track by pimping, who shot four cops in Oakland , Calif. -- before eventually being shot himself.
-- Twenty-eight-year-old Michael McLendon, child of divorce, living with his mother and boycotting family funerals because he hated his relatives, who killed 10 of those relatives and their neighbors in Samson , Ala.
It might make more sense to outlaw men than guns. Or divorce. Or crack. Or to prohibit felons from having guns. Except we already outlaw crack and felons owning guns and yet still, somehow, Wong got crack and Mixon got a gun.
After being pulled over for a routine traffic violation, Lovelle Mixon did exactly what they teach in driver's ed by immediately shooting four cops. Mixon's supporters held a posthumous rally in his honor, claiming he shot the cops only in "self-defense," which I take it includes the cop Mixon shot while the officer was lying on the ground.
I guess Mixon also raped that 12-year-old girl in "self-defense." Clearly, the pimping industry has lost a good man. I wish I'd known him. I tip my green velvet fedora with the dollar signs all over it to him. Why do the good ones always die young? Pimps, I mean.
Liberals tolerate rallies on behalf of cop-killers, but they prohibit law-abiding citizens working at community centers in Binghamton , N.Y. , from being armed to defend themselves from disturbed, crack-addicted America-haters like Jiverly Wong.
It's something in liberals' DNA: They think they can pass a law eliminating guns and nuclear weapons, but teenagers having sex is completely beyond our control.
The demand for more gun control in response to any crime involving a gun is exactly like Obama's response to North Korea 's openly belligerent act of launching a long-range missile this week: Obama leapt to action by calling for worldwide nuclear disarmament.
If the SAT test were used to determine how stupid a liberal is, one question would be: "The best defense against lawless rogues who possess _______ is for law-abiding individuals to surrender their own _______________."
Correct answer: Guns. We would also have accepted nuclear weapons.
Obama explained that "the United States has a moral responsibility" to lead disarmament efforts because America is "the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon."
So don't go feeling all morally superior to a country whose business model consists of exporting heroin, nuclear bombs and counterfeit U.S. dollars, and of importing Swedish prostitutes, you yahoo Americans with your little flag lapel pins.
On the other hand, the Japanese haven't acted up much in the last, say, 64 years ...
Fortunately, US sailors didn't wait around for Obama to save them when Somali pirates boarded their ship this week. Stop right now or I'll ask the U.N. to remind the "international community" that "the U.S. is not at war with Somali pirates."
Gun-toting Americans are clearly more self-sufficient than the sissy Europeans. This is great news for everyone except Barney Frank, who's always secretly wondered what it would be like to be taken by a Somali pirate.
Police -- whom I gather liberals intend to continue having guns -- and intrepid U.N. resolution drafters can't be everywhere, all the time.
If a single civilian in that Binghamton community center had been armed, instead of 14 dead, there might have only been one or two -- including the shooter. In the end, the cops didn't stop Wong. His killing 20 spree ended only when he decided to stop, and he killed himself.
"The shooter will eventually run out of ammo" strategy may not be the best one for stopping deranged multiple murderers.
But it's highly unlikely that any community center in the entire state would be safe from a disturbed former crack-addict like Wong because New York 's restrictive gun laws require a citizen to prove he has a need for a gun to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Instead of having Planned Parenthood distribute condoms in schools, they ought get the NRA to pass out revolvers. It would save more lives.
Israel's Air & Missile Forces Could Wipe out Iran's Nuclear Sites
DEBKA-Net-Weekly Exclusive Updated by DEBKAfile
April 15, 2009
The detailed report compiled by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) in Washington last month, complete with graphs and diagrams, has been reprinted in thousands of copies in Tehran. It is compulsory reading for its intelligence and Revolutionary Guards personnel because the Study on a Possible Israeli Strike on Iran's Nuclear Development Facilities concludes that the Jewish state has all the resources necessary for a successful strike.
When asked recently, Adm. Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint US Chiefs of Staff, agreed with this estimate. This week, president Shimon Peres and prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu both said that if diplomacy failed to halt Iran's nuclear activities, Israel would be left with no option other than the military one. And Tuesday, April 14, the New York Times quoted an Israeli official as saying that Jerusalem would give the Obama administration until late 2009 to stop Iran's uranium enrichment projects; after that, Israel will be forced to act.
Tehran responded with a complaint to the UN Security Council demanding that Israel be condemned for "its threats against a sovereign state."
For the past three years, US military and intelligence sources have used attributed and leaked assessments to the American media to emphasize that such an operation is beyond Israel's capabilities because of the nuclear facilities' wide distribution across Iran. At best, they maintained, the Israeli Air Force might knock out a few Iranian nuclear installations, but only enough to put Iran's nuclear drive temporarily on hold.
The CSIS paper refutes this assessment and maintains there is no need to destroy dozens or hundreds of sites; the destruction of seven to nine targets would be enough to cripple the Iranian program, and lists them as follows:
1. Lashkar A'bad, site of secret uranium enrichment plants in the north near the Turkish border.
2. Tehranb, for the central laboratory for developing atomic armaments as well as more uranium enrichment facilities.
3. Arak, in central Iran, where a heavy water plant is under construction to manufacture plutonium for weapons.
4. Isfahan, in central Iran, near which a small research reactor and a cluster of laboratories for uranium enrichment, centrifuges and weapons development, are situated.
5. Natanz, the main center for uranium enrichment.
6. Ardekan, at the southern tip of Iran, where more uranium enrichment facilities are located.
7. Saghand, Iran's main uranium mining region.
8. Bushehr, on the Persian Gulf shore, Iran's biggest nuclear reactor built by Russia.
9. Gachin, near the Strait of Hormuz, the site of more uranium mines and enrichment facilities.
Complicated tables set forth an array of technical details showing how many PG bombs Israeli Air Force F16I or F15F bomber-fighter planes can carry, how much fuel is needed to reach their Iranian targets, and at what stage of their return journey they would need to refuel.
This think tank finds Israel has enough aircraft as well as the necessary intelligence and electronic resources for the task - contrary to previous estimates.
The authors propose three attack routes for a potential Israeli operation against Iran: an eastern route over Saudi Arabia; a central route over Iraq, and a northern route over Turkey, Syria and northern Iraqi Kurdistan. They point to the third as Israel's best option in view of the superiority of its electronic warfare (EW) capabilities.
This is the first time a detailed and accurate description of these capabilities, and a description of how they were put to use in the Israeli raid on the North Korean-built plutonium reactor in Dar az-Zawr, Syria, on September, 2007, has ever been published.
The Trumpet keeps a keen eye on Germany. For nearly two decades, we have waited, watched and written about the emergence of a globally dominant, German-led bloc of European states. We have warned specifically that a spectacular global financial crisis, centered in the United States, will likely bring this event to fruition.
We are not entirely alone in this expectation.
The following is a snippet from a secret memorandum written by high-ranking German officers and distributed among an elite group of leading Germans in Bonn and other parts of the world. It is an electrifying picture of current events: “Economic difficulties will one day plunge the United States down from its present dizzy heights. Such a catastrophe can be brought about through crafty manipulations and through artificially engendered crises. Such maneuvers are routine measures which have already been employed in international power struggle and will be used again and again as long as economic rivals fight for power positions and markets in the world.
“It is quite conceivable that America, weakened by a depression, will one day seek support from a resurrected Germany. Such a prospect would open tremendous possibilities for the future power position of a bloc introducing a new order in the world.”
The Bush Six to Be Indicted
Spanish prosecutors have decided to press forward with a criminal investigation targeting former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and five top associates over their role in the torture of five Spanish citizens held at Guantánamo, several reliable sources close to the investigation have told The Daily Beast. Their decision is expected to be announced on Tuesday before the Spanish central criminal court, the Audencia Nacional, in Madrid. But the decision is likely to raise concerns with the human-rights community on other points: They will seek to have the case referred to a different judge.
Ten High-Tech Weapons to Repel Pirates
Wednesday, April 15, 2009
By Paul Wagenseil
U.S. Air Force
The 'Dazzle Rifle' gun developed by the Air Force, intended to temporarily blind adversaries.
How does a small gang of lightly armed Somali pirates hijack a modern cargo ship?
Speed and weaponry, mainly. Modern pirates, whether off the coast of Somalia or in the crowded shipping lanes of southeast Asia, typically use fast speedboats to zoom up to the sterns of slow-moving cargo ships. They then toss grappling hooks up to the rails and climb up ropes to clamber on deck.
Pirates are generally armed with assault rifles and, increasingly, rocket-propelled grenade launchers. Modern ships' crews are usually unarmed for a number of reasons, among them laws that prevent armed vessels from docking in the ports of many countries.
"The maritime unions, shipping companies and the International Maritime Organization all agree that ship's crews should not be armed," says Capt. George Quick, vice president of the International Organization of Masters, Mates and Pilots, based in Linthicum, Md. "It would only escalate the situation The [Somali] pirates are pretty well funded, and they'd just get bigger weapons."
American snipers are already center-of-the-bullseye accurate - just look at the three shots that ended the Somali pirate standoff in the Indian Ocean. But tomorrow's sharpshooters could be even sharper still, if a slew of Pentagon research projects work out as planned.
Already, we've seen Navy SEAL shooters take out three pirates with three trigger-pulls -- despite uneven seas and bobbing ships. Imagine how much easier the snipers' jobs would have been, if they had rounds that could change course in mid-air, to account for crosswinds, air density, and moving targets. Darpa, the Defense Department's way-out research arm, launched a $22 million effort in November to do just that. By countering these "fundamental limitation[s] of accuracy," Darpa thinks it can dramatically improve American snipers' range -- and "provide a dramatic new capability to the U.S. military."
And if this EXACTO ("EXtreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance") project doesn't work out, Darpa has other guided-bullet programs -- like a $7.5 million effort to use lasers to steer rounds to their targets. Laser guidance systems are what made the some of the early "smart bombs" so much more accurate than their predecessors; it changed how war was waged from the sky. "Smart bullets" could eventually make a similar impact, perhaps.
The agency is also working on ways to radically upgrade snipers' scopes and spotting gear. Researchers in the "One Shot" program are trying to build an optical system that'll compensate for hiccups in the local atmosphere. By using thousands of laser pulses, agency-funded investigators are hoping to create a profile of the "eddies" in the air, as the light bounces back. The scope, through a series of algorithms, can take those eddies into account, as the sniper team aims. Darpa hopes the new scope will give snipers lethal precision at a range of up to 2000 meters, in winds up to 40 miles per hour. If it happens, Defense Department researchers say, it'll boost a sniper's kill-rate by ten-fold, or more, and let snipers "engage and pull the trigger" in "less than one second."
A companion project, Super-Resolution Vision System (SRVS), wouldn't just make snipers more accurate. It would make them functionally invisible, as well. The system is trying to use "heat haze" -- that shimmer you see on summer days, out in the distance -- for helping snipers, instead of inhibiting them. In any given instant, the heated air acts as a series of lenses; you may be able to look right through them and see a magnified view of the scene beyond. The trick is to use digital technology to identify the "lucky regions" or "lucky frames" when a clear view appears and assemble them into a complete picture. SRVS researchers are aiming to do just that.
If scope works out, it'll be a particular spooky tool. Even if the target is looking right at you, they won’t see a thing because of the heat haze. A sniper using one of these will be a truly invisible assassin, with the ideal technology for picking off high-value targets.
The prototype is supposed to be ready this year. Finished units could be delivered to Special Operations units as early as 2011. As if pirates didn't have enough to worry about.

Blueprint for silencing talk radio exposed
New book warns of 'commissar committees' to censor speech

WASHINGTON – As popular opposition to the reinstitution of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" mounts, Barack Obama and the Democrat-dominated Congress will end-run critics with legislation that will curb dissent on talk radio through the imposition of "localism" rules and community watchdog boards across America, charges a new book by a former NBC Westwood One talk-show host.
In "Shut Up, America! The End of Free Speech," author Brad O'Leary says the plan amounts to the development of party-approved "commissar committees" to censor the kind of lively and free-wheeling debate America has known since the scrapping of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" by President Reagan's Federal Communications Commission in 1987.
By demanding radio stations answer to local community watchdog boards to ensure programming is "balanced," "fair," "diverse," "tolerant" and "serving the public interest locally," O'Leary says the rules and legislation being planned will once again make talk radio accountable to politicians, political activists and bureaucrats at the FCC.
The ultimate threat over the heads of radio stations is license renewal, he explains. "Far-left groups such as ACORN [Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now] stand at the ready to pressure these boards into silencing conservative talk radio programs, either through intimidation or the loss of broadcast licenses," says O'Leary, who, during the presidential campaign, wrote the best-selling book, "The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama's War on American Values."
The book points out there were only 75 radio talk shows in America during the last year of the "Fairness Doctrine" rules. Today, there are more than 3,000.
"The liberals' once-dominant media forum is fading fast, in part because Americans have discovered real diversity of ideas elsewhere," O'Leary writes. "The enemies of free speech know this. They also know that, if they are to accomplish their goal of stifling all debate, they will have to control all media outlets."
While the Obama administration and some Democratic congressional leaders have denied efforts to reinstate the "Fairness Doctrine," none have denied efforts to stack the FCC with appointees open to the idea of reining in talk radio.
"Under the rubric of 'broadcast localism,' it is clear the commission is proposing no less than a sweeping takeover by Washington bureaucrats of broadcast media," wrote Rep. John Boehner, House minority leader, in a letter to FCC Chairman Kevin Martin as far back as last June. "The proposals and recommendations for commission action contained in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking amount to the stealth enactment of the Fairness Doctrine, a policy designated to squelch the free speech and free expression of specifically targeted audiences."
Those regulations would specifically "reinstitute advisory boards to regulate broadcast content and revive a host of other rules the commission dropped more than 20 years ago," explained Boehner.
Also revealed in "Shut Up, America" is evidence that Obama's new FCC chairman wants to create a "Fairness Doctrine" for the Internet to regulate and censor online speech.
Julius Genachowski, an Obama friend from Harvard Law School and the mastermind behind Obama's online fundraising machine, is an ardent supporter of so-called "net neutrality" regulations, perceived by O'Leary as a first step toward "Fairness Doctrine"-style regulations on content for the Internet. Genachowski would have government decide what content Internet operators and network owners must provide.
"Incredibly, he claims this is to keep the Internet free and open to all," says O'Leary. "In reality, his goal is to usher the heavy hands of federal regulators into the tent. Genachowski would give federal regulators editorial authority over what private operators must provide."
Genachowski also advocates creating new media ownership rules that promote a diversity of voices on the airwaves. In fact, Genachowski is credited with helping craft the Obama technology agenda, which states: "Encourage diversity in the ownership of broadcast media, promote the development of new media outlets for expression of diverse viewpoints, and clarify the public interest obligations of broadcasters who occupy the nation's spectrum."
"Such language is bureaucratese for government control," explains O'Leary. "So-called 'public interest' requirements would put broadcasters at the mercy of local review boards. Such boards would, of course, be politically charged entities with the power to bar any broadcast content that is not deemed to be in the 'public interest' of the local community."
"Shut Up, America: The End of Free Speech," published by WND Books, is in bookstores nationally today. O'Leary launches national promotion for the book today.
"If you want to see the blueprint for the plot to silence talk radio, this is it," says Joseph Farah, founder of WND and WND Books. "How important is this? If you want to see the people in charge in Washington remain there perpetually, ignore this threat. The plot to end free speech and the free press in America is the ultimate incumbent protection plan."

Americans are the most heavily armed people in the world. They are also probably the most heavily doped, drugged and indebted. With the economy breaking down, an explosive cocktail could be brewing. The protests at the G-20 and nato summits could be a harbinger of what is headed for Main Street America.
Parts of Strasbourg resembled miniature war zones during the nato summit (April 3 and 4). It was like a French Gaza. Masked protesters hurled rocks, smashed windows and even lit a hotel on fire. Stratfor reported that rioters armed with loaded weapons indicated the violence could have easily exploded into something much worse. Around 25,000 riot police mobilized and arrested hundreds of people. “It’s incredible to think that people choose to take part in a peace protest armed with axes and metal bars and take out their anger on civil servants who are merely doing their job,” French President Nicolas Sarkozy said during a television interview Sunday (emphasis mine).
Yet, rioting in Europe is becoming commonplace. On April 4 in Rome, 200,000 workers took to the streets in the city to vent frustrations over the financial crisis. Over the last month or so in France, hundreds of angry workers have taken managers hostage at three different companies (Caterpillar, 3M and Sony) to protest mass layoffs and wring concessions out of employers.
The British are preparing for more riots too. At the beginning of April, two chief constables quoted in Mail Online gave grim warnings: It’s time to “batten down the hatches. The bad old days of riots could soon be back.” Police are warning that a “summer of rage” may soon engulf the country as victims of the economic downturn take to the streets, the Guardian reported.
But could anything like this hit America?
According to Trends Research Institute ceo Gerald Celente, yes, and soon—and riots are not the only issue Americans will have on their hands.
In November 2007, Celente told upi that the following year would become known as “The Panic of 2008.” Proven correct, he now paints a disturbing picture for 2009 and beyond. Celente says to expect food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches by 2012. “America’s going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for,” he said.
But Celente is not alone in his sober forecast. In a recent Kitco.com post, Trader Tracks Newsletter analyst Roger Wiegand, painted a dark picture:
Social problems from massive unemployment will cause higher crime rates. One analyst estimates the U.S. murder rate will increase to 50,000 per year, matching national traffic accident numbers. Single mothers, children, elderly and others will go hungry. National government disaster planners cannot cope (think Katrina times 100) as they grossly underestimate how bad this can get and how swiftly it arrives. There is plenty of food but the handling and distribution problems will interrupt/delay deliveries. People eat daily, not once a month.
In response to public demonstrations, food riots and escalation of crime, federal troops will be called out and martial law implemented in the worst-case cities. The right-wing militias will be joined by other put-upon groups in fighting with these troops. With so many weapons throughout America, this is going to be ongoing and deadly.
If the above scenario didn’t leave you dizzy, Wiegand goes on to say that large sectors of corporate America will grind to a standstill. Soaring unemployment will cause black markets to spring up everywhere. The U.S. dollar will become obsolete as bartering and personal trading becomes the new American economy. The new black market will put further pressure on what is left of America’s remaining retail business. U.S. auto industries will go bankrupt, and GM and Chrysler will no longer be independent companies. Those who can afford it will abandon the big cities and live in gated enclaves protected by private armies. In short, America will, in many ways, become a Third World country.
In case you think Celente and Wiegand are overly extreme, the evidence is all over the local news, you just have to look.
- According to cnn, a record one in 10 Americans already gets government aid to buy food. That’s over 32 million Americans!
- According to Bloomberg, the real unemployment rate now stands at 15.6 percent, not the oft-quoted 8.5 percent.
- According to the Washington Post, the latest job report foreshadows deeper job losses ahead.
- According to USA Today, record numbers of consumers are behind on their non-mortgage loans.
- According to the Christian Science Monitor, student debt levels and defaults are surging. Students owe a whopping $500 billion.
- According to Reuters, one in eight U.S. homeowners is behind on loan payments or in foreclosure.
- According to Associated Press, tent cities are springing up as people are forced out of their homes and onto the streets.
One of the most vivid examples showing that America may be on the verge of breakdown comes in the form of grassroots tax day tea parties, or rallies, scheduled in the coming weeks. There are thousands of them.
“The tea parties will bring the outrage to a full boil,” one Republican political commentator said. “[T]he battle to protect our nation from socialism’s effect on our culture and our American exceptionalism has just begun.”
Is America on the verge of another 1773?
There is evidence that the U.S. government thinks the possibility of widespread internal turmoil is a real possibility and is developing a military contingency plan. On Sept. 30, 2008, the Army Times reported that Army troops returning from Iraq were now being trained in America “as an on-call federal response force for natural or man-made emergencies and disasters,” and may be “called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control.” As of the end of 2008, 20,000 troops had been earmarked for deployment within the U.S, the Washington Post reported.
Are Vietnamesque protests, or the widespread and violent worker marches of the Great Depression, about to return? Could another Boston Tea Party—or something worse—be brewing?
Celente warns, “The ‘Panic of ‘08′ will be followed by ‘The Collapse of ‘09.’” Political, environmental, geopolitical, social and economic factors all point to “the decline and fall of Empire America,” he says.
Will today’s economic breakdown be the match that ignites the social Molotov cocktail?
America is facing a future of friction and flame. As the U.S. economy further breaks down, unemployment and, consequently, social pressures will inevitably increase. Is chaos in American cities about to become a common sight? Read the chapter “Terrorism and Race Riots” from Gerald Flurry’s booklet Ezekiel: The End-Time Prophet to understand how the Bible says terrorism and race riots are looming—for America.
More than 2,000 protests planned for Tax Day – even in Denmark

Tax Day Tea Party, organizer for April 15 rallies
While WND has found information for more than 700 tea parties, the American Family Association is reporting Tax Day protests for 2,000 cities – and Tax Day Tea Party claims the movement has now spread overseas.
With less than two days before citizens take to the streets, the mainstream media are beginning to report the widespread movement – but many major outlets are doing so in critical columns and television reports.
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote, "Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn't feel right to make fun of crazy people."
He said the tea parties are not an accurate representation of public sentiment.
"They're AstroTurf (fake grassroots) events, manufactured by the usual suspects," he wrote.

USA Today reported that the nationwide protest would number only 500 U.S. town and cities, while a Forbes columnist argued that "federal revenues as a share of the gross domestic product will be lower this year than any year since 1950."
MSNBC's "Rachel Maddow Show" denigrated the movement with puns for 13 minutes, calling it "insanitea" organized by conservative activists. She laughed out loud as she disparaged "tea-baggers" during the broadcast.
MSNBC's David Shuster accused Fox News of "fluffing" the Tax Day tea parties after the news channel became one of few major media outlets to consistently report on the events.
Newsweek Senior Editor Daniel Gross said the movement was "AstroTurf" rather than grassroots because he alleges it began from the top down, according to NewsBusters.
"I think, when it comes to teabagging, the president should probably just ignore this," Gross said. "He's got 10 other things on his plate, you know, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, the banking crisis, the overall economic situation, health care. To get bogged down with a – you know, what seems to be a fringe group of people throwing consumer products into the lakes and rivers of this nation doesn't seem to be worthy of his attention. …"
However, hundreds of U.S. dailies and local news stations are announcing Tax Day tea parties in various towns and cities.
