Shuster and Tea Bagging

This is an awesome video from Red Eye on FoxNews.    Enjoy.

Tea Baggers Unite!

I ran across this video and just had to post it.  David Shuster from MSNBC decided to refer to the Tax Day Protests as “Teabaggers”.   Hmmm…I was at the last event in St. Louis and didn’t see any Teabagging going on. (those of you who don’t know what this slang term means, click here)

And yet another video with Stuart Varney giving the business to a left-wing liberal writer

The idea that this is a “vast right wing conspiracy” is more than ridiculous.  The main website for all of these Tea Party protests is www.taxdayteaparty.com.  This site was registered in February 2009, not before the election as the left-wing liberal writer asserts.  This is a true grass roots movement started by normal individuals and attended by normal individuals (OK, I’m not that normal). 

Thousands of events are being held all over the country – many of them today (Tax Day).  I would encourage all of you who are able to attend one of these events.  I’ll be at the one in St. Louis in Kiener Plaza and this one was probably the largest in the US last time. 

This is not an Obama thing, it’s a freedom thing.  Find an event in your area and show the country that you are tired of the high taxes and wasteful spending going on in our country. 

Of course, that’s just my opinion.

Tax Day Tea Party – April 15

The date is approaching for the next Tea Party Protest on April 15 – Tax Day!.   These protest events are being held all over the country so check out the website at www.taxdayteaparty.com

We can make a great impact by continuing to attend these events.  It would be great to have 5,000 or more people at each event all over the country.  Let’s show the idiots in Washington who are spending the future of the country. 

You can also join the Facebook Group and register yourself for the event in your area.

St. Louis Tea Party Extravaganza

I often go and do things that I know many people will just not do. I’ll go out of my way to see the biggest ball of twine, ride that great roller coaster or eat some weird and interesting concoction at some dive diner I saw on a TV program.

Today was no different. I had the day off of work and could have just stayed home with the kids and played around the house (something I prefer even more than ranting). I decided to do something different.

Today was the Tea Party Protest around the country where normal everyday people joined together and actually protested the massive government intrusion we have been seeing for quite some time. So, I dragged my kids out into the cold (not blizzard cold, just cold) and went down to the Gateway Arch grounds for the protest. Around 500-600 people did the same as I – so maybe there is still hope for our republic. Everything was peaceful and being around that many like minded people was really a neat thing.

To some this seems very strange, but I believe that there is not enough education of children about the history of the US and how we got to this point in our short history. The patriots in colonial times had their own tea party protesting the exorbitant tax on tea by dumping a whole shipload of tea into the Boston Harbor (today this would be like a $10 tax on a cup of Starbucks). We are at the point right now. The “Stimulus Package” along with all of the other boondoggle giveaway programs are changing the landscape of our country forever. This has been tried before back in the 30’s – first with Hoover and then with FDR. Hoover started us down the path and FDR prolonged our long national nightmare for many years (i.e. The Great Depression for those of you who don’t habla) by involving Government in the jobs business. We’re heading down the same road right now.

Businesses need to fail (yes, even banks) for things to really come back to normal. That’s the only way we will get out of this problem. More government programs = more government spending = more taxes on the producers. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to provide for all the lazy people. Failure leads to success.

Of course, this is just my opinion.
