Communist-Obamacrat Tea Party Infiltration Busted!

This is getting too funny.

First, Gateway Pundit has a report, "
Socialist Infiltrators Hand Out Fake Tea Party Literature at NY Protest." Pretty pathetic. Click on the full communist phony "tea party" flyer here:

Plus, check this out, from Erick Erickson, "Is the Obama Administration Behind An Astroturf Anti-Tea Party Website?" (via Memeorandum):

Astroturf is the act of professional interest groups designing campaigns that appear to be grassroots efforts, but are not. It is what the left has accused the tea parties of being. Only more and more it looks like the anti-tea party movement is truly astroturfing.

Writing on January 15, 2010, Glenn Greenwald at Salon noted Barack Obama’s new head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein, had championed creating fake websites and using outside 501(c)(3) interest groups to act as alleged independent champions of government policy and to “cognitively infiltrate” opposition websites, etc.

In other words, Cass Sunstein has favored the government using outside parties as government propaganda agents to paint their opposition as fringe and undermine their credibility. Kind of like what has been happening with the tea party movement – lots of SEIU members pretending to be tea party activists causing violence in front of TV cameras.

Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.” He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging

Considering Sustein’s recommendations, it is not far removed to speculate the Obama administration is behind a new anti-tea party website called The Other 95, which defends the government from tea party criticisms and attacks the tea party movement as fringe.

Good to see you're busy Donald! :-)

I met with a friend today.

His sister could not fly today on her planned vacation to Tenerife, because of the volcanic ash.

He has also a colleague, who took a taxi cab from Barcelona to Stockholm.

The price: 38.000 Swedish kronor! :-)

That's great, Philippe! Is that expensive for a cab?

For a cab and for that distance it is not particularly expensive.

But it would be cheaper, of course, to take a plane from Spain to Sweden :-)

A cab is about 10 time more expensive than a plane.
