Are you going to attend a TEA Party (Taxed Enough Already) on July 4, 2009? If so, why or why not?
On Saturday, July 4th, there will be a Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party rally in your community. It is a follow up to the TEA Party held across the United States on April 15, 2009.
No, because they are pointless. They aren't like the original tea party, and will not have an impact. They are just useless ways for people to make themselves feel like they are being heard.
No, I will not attend a TEA party. I don't believe it will change anything. If anything, it will cause more trouble and quite possibly start riots everywhere. All it takes is one comment that someone doesn't like or gesture and..BOOM..Chaos! If you've seen the movie "Gangs of New York", where at the end of the movie all the gangs gathered in time square (I think) and started just killing each other with whatever they could get their hands on. Picture that everywhere they hold the TEA Parties and decide with that image if you folks still want to hold them. I know I'm going to stay as far away as possible.
No. Because it is a racist right wing event that serves no purpose but to continue to divide and seperate. How about on July 4, 2009 everyone that is going to attend a tea party go to a local shelter and donate food and clothing to the homeless. Or how bout going to a Shriner's hospital and taking balloons and toys to kids that have not been able to sleep at home in their own beds for months. Isn't that more important than this tea party silliness. Wow! And I thought Pinnochio was only a fantasy.

Is it fair to refer to the Tea Party as the American Taliban?I think I saw a bumper sticker that said this. Obviously, this would be a very liberal position, but are there any actual similarities? Is this a statement...

I've been on the fence about the TEA Party. My husband, who is much more conservative than I am, fully supports the TEA Party and has attended rallies. I, however, have not. I do agree with several of their points, but...
