ATLANTA ‚Äď Whipped up by conservative commentators and bloggers, tens of thousands of protesters staged "tea parties" around the country Wednesday to tap into the collective angst stirred up by a bad economy, government spending and bailouts. The rallies were directed at President Barack Obama's new administration on a symbolic day: the deadline to file income taxes. Protesters even threw what appeared to be a box of tea bags toward the White House, causing a brief lockdown at the compound.
Shouts rang out from Kentucky, which just passed tax increases on cigarettes and alcohol, to Salt Lake City, where many in the crowd booed Republican Gov. Jon Huntsman for accepting about $1.5 billion in stimulus money. Even in Alaska, where there is no statewide income tax or sales tax, hundreds of people held signs and chanted "No more spending."...
Your appraisal of the American people and the devalued U.S. Currency is RIGHT ON !!! ‚Ä¶ THIS HAS BECOME SUCH AN INFLATED PEOPLE (INFLATED WITH ‚Äúself‚ÄĚ) ‚Ä¶‚Ä¶ A PEOPLE CONSUMED BY THEIR OWN FOLLY ‚Ä¶‚Ä¶ THIS IS A PEOPLE WHO PERCEIVE NOT THEIR OWN SUBSTANTIALLY DEFLATED VALUE --- YES, DEFLATED BEYOND THAT OF THEIR OWN DOLLAR, WHICH AS YOU WELL KNOW IS ABSOLUTELY ‚Ä¶ W O R T H L E S S ‚Ä¶ !!! ‚Ä¶ THIS IS A PEOPLE WHO ARE GUILTY OF SUBSTITUTING SO MANY ‚Äúdamnable things‚ÄĚ FOR THAT WHICH IS TRULY IMPORTANT !!!
FAR TOO MANY ARE NEITHER HOT NOR COLD, BUT RATHER they are ‚Äútepid‚ÄĚ/‚Äúlukewarm‚ÄĚ ‚Ä¶ --- THIS IS A PEOPLE WHO COMPREHEND NOT THAT THEY ARE ‚Äúwretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked‚ÄĚ !!!

this is the end of the petrodollar, best case scenario for the dollar (and the US) is first amongst equals, worse case is worthless money. I know a few shipowners who stoppped using the dollar two years ago and went over to the euro as the dollar was to unstable and some business associates liquidated their dollar acoounts 12 months ago and wont use it. we all know what happens when there isnt a clear dominant power - check europe 100 yrs ago
The american people are no longer ideologically disposed for the protection of israel even tho militarily they can do it but if you arent really interested then it makes no difference how militarily powerful a nation is.
If israels security is threatend by a major power american indifference will be shown to the world, perhaps shortly,
Its no use blaming Obama, the USA people elected him so that means that the average american neither knows nor cares what the Bible says, and laughs at the God of the bible and His people - Judgement soon ?
The economy will not come out of this. This seemingly temporary reprieve is deceptive. The Fed. Gov. and its 90% of the GDP bailout leaves a looming disaster. The value of our dollar will literally not be worth the paper it is printed on.
The only good thing that may come from the Obama administration is a strong third party. I am an ultra-right wing conservative, but it was plain to see that most Republicans were not conservative during the last admin. We had eight mediocre years under Bush, I refuse to call him a bad president or the worst president (was Carter's name stricken from the record?), and now the biggest spending spree ever in just four months with Obama. That means we have really tried with both of our main line parties and they both stink. The "tea-parties" are all about going back to the constitution and a limited federal government. I believe that either a new third party will form as we become frustrated as a nation or the Libretarian party will finally become contenders. On the other hand, if the economy comes out of the toilet, which it is bound to do in spite of all the foul ups by Bush and Obama, then whoever is in charge will get credit, although they actually did nothing, and be voted in again. Take it to the bank.
No, John Y., while Bush deficit critics tackle Obama plan, Bungler Bush's deficits were for a war which he started. He may have redeemed his papa's honor, he picked a very expensive way to go about it.
Luke 14 28 For which of you, desiring to build a tower, doth not first sit down and count the cost, whether he have wherewith to complete it? 29 Lest haply, when he hath laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all that behold begin to mock him,
You're right -- CNN, Headline News, NBC, ABC and MSNBC are no longer "EQUITABLE" News Sources - they're a BIG PROBLEM for "Us" today !!!
Here's a little tidbit that goes HAND IN HAND with the radical News Media --- There's a report that has been put out by The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Dated: 7 April 2009 --- those at the "Tea Parties", those who say "Our" Government is OUT OF CONTROL, those who STAND AGAINST sodomites, same-sex marriage, abortion and THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION DEBACLE, those who WARN AGAINST "The One World Order" and GUN CONTROL, etc... are being labeled under what the "Intelligence and Analysis Assessment" calls "RIGHTWING EXTREMISM: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment"
*TO STAND FOR "Our" GOD GIVEN RIGHTS AND THE CONSTITUTION SUDDENLY MAKES "Us" Domestic Terrorists ???

This is a first because I am actually sticking up for Bush. I did not like Bush that well but I do not consider Bush to be a buffoon. Bush may have run up the red ink but Obama is running up the red ink even farther then Bush did in his entire presidency.

It is an absolute disgrace the way that the liberal media outlets of CNN, Headline News, NBC, ABC and MSNBC reported on the Tea Parties by telling lies. There was one insane and psychotic CNN woman reporter who would not let a man speak about why he was in attendance at a Tea Party. I would have told that stupid dame "Shut up lady I am trying to explain why I am here. Don't you know anything about etiquette"? That stupid dame CNN reporter at the end of the segment told a lie that Fox News Channel was behind the Tea Parties. It is about time that individuals start telling off these jerk liberal reporters.
If there were low taxes and no government action, people would be protesting the government's callous indifference to the economic crisis. Hey, it's a great country that lets people protest in freedom! Oh, wait, right-wing nutcases are being labeled as terrorists...
