    The rhetoric is loud and shrill condemining the Tea Party movement, the Taxpayers' March on Washington, and any and all who dare challenge the tactics, motives, or agenda of the current Administration and Congress.

    I try not to be intentionally confrontational or controversial in these forums, but I am becoming more and more convinced that there are those determined to forever change the America and the American way of life that many of us have come to know and love.

    We have a Congress apparently unwilling to subject themselves to the laws they pass for the rest of us, who refuse to read the legislation they present, who intend to not allow us to see it until it is a done deal, who don't give a tinker's dam about ethics, and think we're too stupid to know it.

    Here's the latest example:

    Is anybody else out there concerned about this?

    Sorry, the teabaggers are a joke.

    They will fizzle into the scrapheap of history. Five years from now they will be the puncline to one of those "Do you remember those assholes?"

    The Teabaggers have no sand, and they will be gone by next summer.

    So then you guys aren't the least bit concerned? You don't care that our elected leaders seem to be playing you for fools and simpletons too dumb to know you're being had? You think the Tea Partiers are the stupid ones?

    But then so can the American people have short attention spans too. What are the chances that the 'sins' in evidence now will be remembered enough to produce an 'ass kicking' in 2010?

    # 6 above - no, they are simply unimportant and ignored by 97% of America
    # 7 above - no chance at all

    Can you not use the quote or multiquote facility?

    Oh, and you're wrong. The TEA baggers are important and they are middle America - a group not noted for its 'get out and rattle the cage' attititude. They're mad and they are going to stay mad.

    And in 2010 - we'll see.

    Look what happened to the cap and tax bill that they rushed through the House.They added 300+ pages around 3 A M which no one on the GOP had a chance to read like 8 hours later. Then when the republican leader tried to have the pages read on the floor so they could question the additions they got their balls broken about it. The Dems finally gave in and let them read it but the issue is what the f is going on with this administration that said they would be up front about everything.
