WHEN YOU SEE YOUR NEIGHBOR’S BEARD ON FIRE…YOU BETTER MOISTEN YOURS
(SPANISH SAYING: CUANDO VEAS LA BARBA DE TU VECINO ARDER…PON LA TUYA EN REMOJO)

Tea Baggers you are hereby put on notice: If you keep destroying the fabric of American society you may be causing a total collapse of our great nation…plagued with protests and riots that you will encourage and support. You keep talking about a 2nd Amendment option and that is a call to arms, a call to insurrection…that is treason.
You propose nothing realistic in return: smaller government, government it the problem, no taxes, no Social Security, no Medicare, no public education…and yes, a tyrannical right-wing Christian Fundamentalist theocracy…so what you are selling…WE ARE NOT BUYING!
To those who are not Teahadists and say it can’t happen here; it already has - forty years ago we had riots in almost every major American city. Below are photos of the Los Angeles Watts riots which I witnessed right next door in the city of Huntington Park where I lived. I also feel very uneasy whenever I see and hear a call for insurrection as I lived through the Cuban Revolution in the late fifties that culminated in the takeover of a Marxist-Totalitarian regime.
Teahadists can only offer chaos and anarchy and if they do have a chance at taking power we are going to see a totalitarian, theocratic oligarchy. I remember too the fall of Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines and the deposition of Suharto in Indonesia. I find it hard to believe that any sane American would want to go that route.
