Now listen to the media trying to figure out what this is. Total morons. They are not GD republicans, who says that party has a lock on conservative politics? Screw that party, they are part of the problem. They are concerned Americans who want responsible government spending, and policies.

Don't believe too much of what you hear on MSNBC. Since Jeffrey Immelt took over GE (owners of MSNBC) they have become nothing more than A$$ licking sycophants for the Hussien Whitehouse & the Demo party in general.

As I repeatedly state, don't blame the Dems, don't blame the Repubs.
Blame the Politicians.

These Tea parties have been occuring all over the country.

Let's remember what triggered the revolutionary war. Excessive Taxation.


And I am also getting sick of anybody that disagrees with the government (ie the politicians !!!) they are called freaks, nutballs, right wingers.

Because I am constantly seeing the government (politicians) doing things completely against what the public wants.

Here in Chicago, 80% of the people said they do NOT want the Olympics if the taxpayers are on the hook for cost overruns. The City Council UNANAMOUSLY gave Daley the right to put taxpayers on the hook.

Here in Ill, the state legalized video gaming at bars etc, W/O PUBLIC INPUT, most surveys are against it, and MANY municipalites have or will have banned it before it even becomes law. FYI the full story of this one is a HUGE joke on us taxpayers.

Which is exactly what the people in the MSNBC clip said. I'm not sure what your complaint is with that particular video clip. Seemed OK to me. Having said that, I believe that Dick Armey's organization had a lot to do with organizing this protest. If so, then I'd say it's tied to the GOP.

Nice of these people to exploit 9/11 for their partisan political purposes.

Impressive turnout, though.

Oh and taxation w/o representation.

Our Sales tax went up last year to the highest in the nation, property taxes are going up, they keep coming up with new things to tax.
Did you know that according to the County my house went UP in value last year !!!!

The Feds are talking sugar drinks, here in Chicago Candy, but only if it doesn't contain Flour.

Vehicle stickers, license plates, phone, cable...

Just wait they are going to figure out how to tax taxes

OH AND BOOZE and BEER TOO

Probably when they got a job last month when the economy started getting better and they had to pay taxes?

I live in NW IL, close to Chicago.

Here we ONLY get to vote for the people anointed by the party.
That includes my Senators and Congressmen.

Read the story about how Todd Stroger got his position (although the Dems bailed on him, 10% approval rating makes Bush look good) handed down from father to son. The whole story on this one is really funny, oh on us taxpayers.

Read about Emil Jones, passed his position to his son.

Read about the city of Chicago Council how many positions are convienently handed down to a family member.

And don't think it's just a local problem.

Kennedy wasn't even cold, and there was talk about his ? being given his seat, at least temporarily. I believe he turned it down.

Consider how many people vote for "the lessor of two evils".

Somehow the problem needs to be fixed.


Politicians and Diapers
Both need to be changed regularly
FOR THE SAME REASON

We already know how to do that in Taxachusetts, Baby Barack (aka "Cadillac" Deval Patrick, another David Axelrod product!) with the help of the Democrat party controlled state legislature increased the state sales tax 1.25% from 5% to 6.25% in the same legislation they changed the state law to make sales of beer, wine and distilled spirits subject the sales taxation. Beer, wine, and distilled spirits have been and continue to be subject to a state alcohol excise tax, now the citizens get to pay a 6.25% sales tax on the alcohol excise tax!

Then of course you can guess what happens next! One of the very same utterly shameless liberal Democrat politician scumbags is caught avoiding the very taxes he voted to impose on others!

Voters should demand competent candidates. That's not been the case in every election, has it? As far as local politics, not much we can do about it if it's not our local. I don't believe in term limits,I think voters should be able to elect whom they want for as long as they want there choice to serve.
Massachusetts has a law that covers the death of Sen Kennedy. They must hold a special election. I don't consider it a "problem" in any case, since I live in PA.
