    Where are all the minorities :confused2: ... Minorities don't like tea I guess.

    The Senate is like a tea party ... there is only 1 African American.

    Does Obama drink tea? Zeituni? George OneHut?

    Are we headed towards a new civil war ... civil violence perhaps ... white vs minority?

    Is Joe Biden a tea bagger?

    How about Michelle Obama? Barbara Bush was a tea bagger ... she is white.

    Are the British coming?

    So we elect Congress people to represent us but they ignore us ... guess they don't do tea.

    If Texas leaves the country will Seymour93 become our Zeituni?

    Is Barney Frank a tea bagger? What :eek: you know you were thinking it.
    Gretta is a tea bagger ... she has a flat face. Jay Leno also ... a flat facer.
    John Kerry is not a tea bagger ... he has a pointy face.

    Oh well ... that's enough random crap for now ... I am tired and talking too much sh!t right now. :banned:

    Well since 95%+ of Black people voted for Obama what would you expect..

    Is it a reflection of unthinking devotion to 'one of their own' being President rather than a critical analysis of his policies?

    Racial divide in this country is taking a step backwards.
    I am all for government representation but this tea party stuff is very telling.

    This is what Obama has created ... he recruited people who wanted more from Uncle Sam. This is what happens when you vote for an extra $13 / week. Tea party people don't want to pay for that extra $13.00.

    Additionally this was largely a "tax" statement and not a lot of blacks pay a lot of taxes. According to Wiki, 86% of the top 40% of income earners are White and the top 40% pay most of the income tax. I'm not blaming non whites for this, it's just a statement of "it is what it is" and as the vast majority of income tax is paid by Whites, they would be the ones upset at the crazy taxes we pay.

    All the tea parties were a joke. I didn't see one in which a good crowd gathered. I mean 2-3 thousand people gathering at each party is pathetic and certainly not representative of a "movement" at all.

    I found it laughable that Fox news would never pan out with their cameras to show how small the gatherings actually were. The one in Providence was embaressing.

    ????????????????

    It's Wednesday bro. Most people who would be complaining about paying high taxes (be it state, city, or federal) would be busy working, wouldn't they? I think it's pretty cool, and I applaud them.

    Please, this is a fake movement started by a corporate media outlet with an agenda. It's no different than the types that show up for the fake crowd at the Superbowl halftime show or at some MTV thing. If they are gonna use the "we have jobs" excuse then they could do it on a weekend. Oh that's right, cable news doesn't get raitings on the weekends so that won't fly.

    If you really care about this "issue" you show up, otherwise you don't care enough. The righties on this site like to project their own views onto what these people are protesting about but none of them even really know, they're just angry people who don't know who to direct their anger towards so they just listen to the talking heads. It's sad.

    Most everyone can take a day off anytime they please if they believe it's an important cause. I mean the people who should be protesting would be middle and high income earners and they typically have plenty of sick & vacation days. What's one day for a cause one believes is important?

    The very sad Glenn Beck was at the Alamo in Texas. He was acting as if it was a huge turnout, but I saw the same protest on another channel and the turnout was far from big. I mean, some are TRYING to call this a movement. Well, most movements are enthusiastically supported by hundreds of thousands.

    Beck actually said the Texas protest reminded him of the people who gathered for the 9/11 memorials. That was a joke and an insult to those who died on 9/11.

    I gotta laugh at you guys. Seriously, why do you get so worked up about this........

    When bunch a smelly peace-niks hold a anti-war protest, or a bunch of gays wanna prance down the street in drag, or a million blacks guys wanna get together in DC for a gathering....... You are all for it and its "the American way".

    But god forbid a bunch of white guys wanna hold a peaceful protest about the fact that we just spend a few TRILLION dollars that we don't have and that they are gonna end paying for............. all of the sudden they are "right wing extremists" and somehow "a joke". WFT????

    Good for them. I didn't go to any of them, because I don't have the time or inclination. But from what I see, there is no harm in a bunch of white guys "pitching their b!tch" in public, just that same as anyone else.

    PR's crying the loudest and pitifully trying to downplay it the most.

    Dude, there was like 500-600 of them. Even if they averaged 1500-2000 people, your talking a million people, all of who probably pay taxes. It may not be a "movement" but it's more then a couple code pinko's drssing up and heading down the the local mall.

    Point being, whether its a 1,000, or a 1,000,000 - it shouldn't bother you one bit.

    Oh, btw......... The San Antonio one was estimated at 13,000, not 2-3 thousand. Not HUGE, but not insignificant.

    Please, you. Give it a rest. Like the "Gay" Pride marches don't have an agenda, like all the marches we've ever had in America "didn't have an agenda", like the organizers of the anti-war (against communists) of the Vietnam War era didn't have an agenda, etc, etc, etc.

    Who do you think you're talking to here.... "in-born Mainers"??!!! :rolleyes:

    I agree if you view this board as a microcosm of society at large it becomes even more evident... the divide is getting wider, media are complicit.. this whole Texas thing is of concern.

    Well since there were 300-400 nationally and as RW points out many would be participants were working (me & mrs patsfan13 eg) now the numbers nationally are well ober 100k. perhaps 300k...

    It is hysterical to see how the protest party reacts to conservatives holding a protest.

    .

    The hysteria by the left-wingers in the media over a few thousand people marching for tax and spend sanity .... this is very indicative of the mind of these on the left. ("Oh, but the media is just pocked by a 'few renegades'".... :rolleyes: ) They really DO want some form of socialism to dominate the economic system. "Guarantees" for income, housing, health care .... guarantees!! Who the hell is "guaranteed" anything in life???

    Make the people who stole and scammed the money give it all back. Make THEM pay. Then, keep the scam artists from screwing over the common man and woman. :mad:

    Keep telling yourself it's fake. I'm sure that everyone who opposes Iraq, supports Amnesty, or is yay, or nay, on whatever other issue, doesn't go to a rally to prove so. I'll be sure to ask all the posters in here if they've shown up to a public protest on a specific issue, cuz if they haven't, then none of us should take them seriously.

    I'm still trying to figure out what these people are mad about. Why do they despise the protesters so much? I'm guessing that PR, Wildo, and Co. all feel that we are either taxed adequately, or not taxed enough.

    Hey RW and PINY, I actually agree with the purpose of the protests, so I'm not upset or mad. If you've read my posts here for the last 6 months, I've been the most vocal about gov't spending and anti-bailouts.

    Personally, I'm glad they did it, but I was disappointed by the turnouts and I also can't stand the arse, Glen Beck. Beck is the biggest phony I have ever seen....hands down. The guy actually fakes crying on his show while he tells the camera how much he loves his country. He's done it several times and it's sickening. If CNN started these protests, I'd be much more supportive. But I could NEVER support any station with Beck & Hannity....The worlds 2 biggest LOSERS.

    As I've ALWAYS said to my tax-loving friends: "... if YOU think we're not taxed enough, you can always help someone else pay their taxes."

    I know a few lefties who have done that, but 99% will scoff. Doesn't it make you feel all warm and fuzzy to see Ted Kennedy in his Hyannisport and Nantucket digs and tax-free trust fund (from daddy's rum-running bootlegging), John Heinz Kerry with his billion dollar nest egg, Nancy Pelosi with her mega millions .... ?? Don't forget: they all think you're "not paying enough".
