Oh comrade, my comrade
A.C. Kleinheider’s "The Tea Party revolution will likely be betrayed" [The City Paper, April 20], was a masterpiece.
Guess professional conservative is the new buzz/curse term for us anti-socialists. He used it seven times and ‘conservative’ more than that — (14 times). He uses "Right" at least 10 times, so that makes an average of ‘2’ what he considers a derogatory term per paragraph.
This guy is good enough to teach Propaganda 101, to deflect from the rampart spending and social "CHANGE" they are making and "HOPE" we don't notice.
Someone told me a long time ago the way to know what they (the Left) are up to is to listen to what they are accusing others of. They not only want the power but have it and are spending like crazy to insure they keep it.
If someone used the terms socialist/communist Marxist that many times they would be calling it hate/mean spirited speech, even if you just called them lefties or democraps. Way to go, Comrade.

Earth Day food for thought
This Wednesday’s Earth Day observance should encourage every one of us to leave adequate natural resources for our children and grandchildren by making needed changes in our driving, our shopping, our recycling and our diet.
Yes, our diet. A 2006 report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization blamed meat production for 18 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. That’s more than automobiles!
Moreover, meat and dairy production dumps more animal waste, crop debris, fertilizers, pesticides and other pollutants into our waterways than all other human activities combined. It is the driving force in worldwide deforestation and wildlife habitat destruction.
So, this Wednesday and every day, let’s celebrate Earth Day by replacing meat and other animal products in our diet with a healthful, eco-friendly spread of vegetables, fresh fruits, and whole grains.
