Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – August 5 –
So, what proof do we have that they had a bad week? Dr. Peele was interviewed on MSNBC. He said:
"They want a state of happiness or nirvana that can't be achieved except through an artificial substance and reminds us of the Norway situation, when people are thwarted at obtaining something they can't, have they often strike out and Norway is one kind of example to one kind of reaction to that kind of a frustration."
"They are adamant about achieving something that's unachievable, which reminds us of a couple of things. It reminds us of delusion and psychosis,"
What’s wrong with a state of Nirvana? President Obama has one. The Tea Party can have one too.
First, the Tea Party had nothing to do with the Norway disaster. So, that is a failed argument.
Second, the Tea Party tried to achieve cut, cap, and balance. Taxes were not increased, and spending was not only cut, it stands to be cut more by December of 2011. A balanced budget amendment will be voted on by Congress. Obamacare may be subject to cuts by December 2011. They have already achieved the unachievable.
PEELE: Well, I'm looking at one goal beyond. They want no new taxes because they seek some kind of idyllic past. No new taxes won't bring that. It won't bring them economic recovery, so then they’ll have to turn their attention to some other supposed method for attaining that until they go through all of them. Perhaps they can push through all of them. Perhaps people become discontented. Perhaps they will become discontented. And then I think people are likely to get riled up, and it could become a very angry movement, could potentially become a violent movement.
