Tea time?

I know that I have been lax with the blog and while I hate to make excuses, I have quite a few, not the least of which is little time outside of work to get my thoughts posted.

I don’t have much today either because I think the day’s news will speak for itself.

While I will be stuck in hearings for work this afternoon, I hope that all who can partake in a local tea party does so. Let your voice be heard and together we can capture the true American spirit that has guided our nation for so long. 

If you can’t make it to a rally like me, send a letter to your representatives expressing your displeasure and make sure to send a picture of a tea bag along too (they won’t accept the real ones.) Or join an email campaign and drop a line to the president detailing your displeasure with the current administration’s slow march toward socialism.

While it might be small steps, several million small steps make a world of difference.

I am hopeful that the tea parties will at least knock the anointed one back for a moment and realize that any mandate he thinks he has might be tenuous at best.

I hope to give you some real meat to sink your teeth into soon. Thanks for reading.

    Oh boy, here we go. Funny how these tea parties were the final two minutes of any news broadcast, but Fox News dedicated nearly a week to this nonsense!

    Republicans are looking to gain traction with anti-tax tea parties. Where were these voices last fall when these bailouts were decided to be done by the Bush administration??? Or did we forget about that already???

    The anointed one? Give me a break! Bush had every conservative and snake-charming church in the bible belt believing he walked on water!

    Hey Ed,
    Who believed Bush walked on water? No one was happy with everything that he did except for a very few Republicans. The tea party movement is very much grass roots and perhaps a few Republican politicians are looking to gain traction by jumping on the movement; the core of the group is not partisan, but rather looking for fiscal and legislative conservatism. You may interpret that conservatism as partisan, but that is not the intent.

    And why would you call Americans who are exercising their right to assemble and protest, especially something as basic as overbearing taxes, “nonsense?”

    Bush’s bailouts were very much a point of contention with every true conservative and most Republicans. In fact, that probably was the final straw of any real conservative support that he had. But to suggest that if it was good for Bush, then why not Obama, is so much crap and insulting to the intelligence of the readers of this blog. Obama’s bailouts and so-called stimulus package is costing 1000 times more than Bush’s boondoggle. No, I did not misquote that number, I wrote “1000 times more.”

    The point is not comparison, it is addressing something that is insanely wrong. That is our constitutional right. A basic right. The mistake would be if we sat around and politely discussed it without taking any action.

    What really bothers me is that folks like you want to bash Bush, without a critical look at your “appointed one.” Do you not see the parallels between what you accuse the Bush supporters of and the blank check you have given Obama?

    Actually…it’s not so funny that our American media ,other than Fox News, refuses to report on the thoughts and opinions of a surprisingly large amount of Americans who are passionately interested in preserving the foundation of our great country. If they were all quietly protesting anything their liberal anti-American agenda might be able to use they would have cameras in the protesters faces and there would be an effort to hear all of their grievances and at least the respect of political correctness about the coverage. It is the beginning of communist propaganda when the media chooses a candidate and only reports on them, every single day and every single move. Our media is owned by our government’s agenda and unbiased coverage is a thing of the past.

    Geez Tree, just what is your point? Is bias in the media okay with you, so long as it’s Obama’s point of view?

    No John, but some people here are always crying about liberal bias and then watch Fox news and believe everything like it is the bible. Fox news is biased too. THAT is my POINT.
