Janeane Garofalo calls teabaggers “racist rednecks”
Janeane clears up who the protesters are and what motivates them…no it is not having all their tax dollars being given to rich fat cats that bankrupted their companies and, in part, created the economic crisis. Nor is it the fact that their children and grandchildren will be overtaxed to pay for these bailouts. It isn’t even the that Obama and his $12 TRILLION dollar | Read More »
Anyone Got a Map?
I am very curious – what direction is our country headed, as far as ideology is concerned? I’m looking at the course of foreign policy decisions that have been made over the last 88 days, and it doesn’t feel like blue-blooded, hard-working, capitalist, proud, moral, ethical America any longer. We used to ally ourselves with the great people around the world. Our best friends have | Read More »
Avoiding Criticism: CNN Shuts Down Anti-Tea Party Reporter’s Email Address
So, we are all well aware of the so-called “reporter” from CNN, Susan Roesgen whose on-air haranguing of those she was ostensibly reporting on made obvious her anti-Republican bias. Well, for the past day Americans have been emailing her to let her know how they feel about her unprofessional attitude. Apparently, CNN does not appreciate hearing from its viewers, though, because all of a sudden | Read More »
Carry The TEA Parties On!
There is only ONE WAY to make CHANGE. That is through transactions. The TEA Parties and those Patriots who attended them and stood their ground, now need to take action. BOYCOTT EVERY ADVERTISER WHO ADVERTISES ON EVERY LIBERAL SOCIALIST NEWS MEDIA OUTLET. If the numbers who turned out for TEA Parties could be mobilized to boycott those advertisers, the remaining CHANGE from those transactions would | Read More »
I watched a few Tea Party protest videos. Something began to strike me as incongruous. It started to dawn on me. Where was the rude name calling? Where was the stone throwing? Where was the beating up of the police with sticks? What kind of protesters where these? Kindly old ladies, people in wheel chairs, toddler children held in the arms of parents. Crowds singing | Read More »
The Tea Party in Canton, NY
Any day you can drive through Northern New York with the windows down is a good day. And, considering I was about to stand on a line holding a sign for two and a half hours, this bode very well indeed. The light breeze and clear, blue sky was all the encouragement I needed that this was a darn fine day for dissent. As I | Read More »
Virginia Tea Party Round-up
While tax day was raw and gloomy, the energy was high, indeed, at the Richmond Tea Party last night. Thousands of people crowded into a soggy Kanawha Plaza in sight of the Richmond Federal Reserve building to vent, learn, cheer, network and, yes dine on fine barbecue. Somewhere in the crowd was the RTD’s Tyler Whitley, who filed this report, which contained a nice message | Read More »
Saint Cloud MN, Proud Tea Party Location [Videos Fixed]
If you have never heard of Saint Cloud, Minnesota, don’t feel bad. Based on the 2000 Census, this town has 59,107 people, and is located in the middle of the northern most state in the center of the United States. Per Capita income in 2000 was $19,769 as opposed to a nationwide number of $21,587. We are a mostly working class town strongly steeped in | Read More »
After a tea party, how about a tour of the new luxury ladies room?
After the Concord tea party yesterday, Rep. Fran Wendelboe took a group on a guided tour of the newly renovated ladies room in the state house. The renovation was just completed two weeks ago at a price tag of $72,000. Marble walls and floors, granite counter tops, upscale sinks, and nice sconces for mood lighting. And of course the obligatory Democrat senator defending the expenditure. | Read More »

My Coverage of the Chicago Tea Party
I attended the Chicago tea party protest yesterday and have produced some video highlights and a bunch of still photos of the event. This is the one organized by Eric Odom of taxdayteaparty.com.
Those Dangerous Tea Parties: Are YOU the Threat We’ve Been Waiting For?
Alright all you right-wing thugs out there, now that tax day is over, Obama and his pals are saying you are dangerous and that your tax protests are an act of revolution. It is amusing that they’ve never said that with the many riots past and present spread by left-wingers in the US — after all little “right-wing” violence has ever been seen here — | Read More »
The Left And ‘Teabagging’
On his tax day episode of Breakdown, Keith Olbermann indulged himself some fun making of the many hundreds of thousands of Americans that gathered together to protest the Obama administration’s abuse of our tax dollars. Like his compatriot of the extreme left and fellow MSNBC host, Rachel Maddow, the fun making centered not on the actual reason the protests were called but on the words | Read More »
Tea Party (Melbourne, FL)
I went to my first protest today, in front of City Hall. It was a fairly good turnout, especially for a sleepy central Florida town during a weekday lunch hour — folks lined both sides of the street, three or four deep, for about three blocks. The local left-leaning fishwrap reported the attendance at 400–500 here. There were no speakers and no organized program; the | Read More »
