    The Tea Party is funded by corporate lobbyist think tanks. So your point is mute.

    Really? From Schult'z email:

    Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Calls For Boycott On Campaign Contributions

    Sounds EXACTLY like a Tea Partier to me.

    Yes I am a teacher. And what I read from this email is "eff Washington" "get out of the way" and let private businesses and people make this country strong again. That's what the Tea Party's message is.

    :eusa_eh: Joke?

    Not the Tea Party's focus. This is aimed at all incumbents and party "war chests". Like I said, if you want them to honestly listen to us and not just their supporting PACs then hit them where it hurts, that'll get their attention and maybe, just maybe they'll start listening.
