    This may get closed, but I am curious about just how many plan on going to a Tea Party tomorrow.

    I am hoping that those that choose to participate in this thread will be adult enough to realize not everyone agrees all the time. [​IMG]

    A "Sorta" reenactment of the Boston Tea Party as a protest against the current taxes, and other laws etc...

    Unfortunately, SOME (not all) people, networks and groups are using it as an anti-Democrat, Anti-Obama campaign... even thought the current tax laws were imposed by the Bush administration... (Obama hasn't made any changes to it yet, there hasn't been enough time, and any he does make wouldn't take effect until next year!) and many folks involved in the Tea Parties aren't aware of that.

    Then there are the OTHER networks that are using footahge of the demonstrations in the opposite way, to peg anyone that attends as "extremists" and nutjobs....

    I just wish ALL the people involved in the gatherings were well- informed; and that the ones covering it would stick to the old rules of News casting---"Just The News--just the facts..." and leave their personal politics and opinions out of it.
