Fed-up Americans mobilize: More than 150 tea parties

Patriots put blazing heat on Washington, rebuke reckless spending by government
A revolution is brewing as American patriots and free-market advocates protest against with more than 150 nationwide tea parties.
John M. O'Hara of The Heartland Institute is helping coordinate a number of national tea party events.
"Our message is simple: 'Bailing out' reckless businesses and individuals is neither the burden of responsible, hard-working American taxpayers nor the role of government," he said.

Inspired by CNBC analyst Rick Santelli's call for a new "tea party" in response to Obama's socialist economic plans, a wave of Americans have decided to take a page out of U.S. history and hold "tea party" rallies and demonstrations across the nation. WND has a forum to exchange ideas, information and announcements about the "revolution."

Well the Tea parties better get going fast before our government finish giving away the office of the treasury to the private banks behind the Federal Reserve.

The biggest take over by a private entity that defies Americas constitutional rights.

Better hurry up!!!!!!!!

Exaclty what did happen - nothing!

What would "of" happened?

We'd have $1.7 Trillion dollars to give directly to homeowners and buyers.

The bailouts and stimulus programs have saved ZERO homes from foreclosure.

Bailout money went strictly to financial institutions to improve their balance sheets.

Stimulus money goes to state and federal programs, none of which has refinanced a single home.

The largest "rescue" gov't. program for mortgage assistance had fewer than 1,000 applicants and has only been given to a few hundred of those.

Any other salvage programs were run privately by lenders and servicers.


(edit to show what would've happened)

How about some real Tea Party action with some tens of thousands of cartons of cigarettes & food from stores that haven't taken their prices back to tolerable levels, even after Gas prices have come back down. I'm all for a lil round o'fun at the Governments & Corporate level Food purveryors expense. I say fill a few big assed bodies of water up with the afformentioned goods, & then have a water clean up party (yes you can keep what you clean out of the water) We'll need some folks to stand guard against those who may not agree with us, we'll give them dibs on items that are cleaned up during the (Clean Up Party) after the actual Tea Party.

Your not serious are you? 9.7 trillion in more debt sure isn't saving anyone's mortgage. You must just be one of the lucky one's who doesn't understand how much we need to take our country back. Tea party's are greaet im just waitin' for the shot heard round the world part 2.

IMO,many should NOT have had those houses to start with,sorry.

It's not your "God given right" to own a home,especially is you put no money down when you buy it and they knew that you couldn't afford the payments when you filled out the paperwork(low doc of course) they so graciously steered you through for a house that was probably MUCH more than you really needed?
I own my home: I worked hard and put a percentage down when I bought it,it was something I could afford,and I paid it off in my lifetime.
I'm a dinosaur,I know.

I think what they should have "done" was to not instill even more of an entitlement attitude to a segment of society that was ill-equipted to cope in order to further their own greed-soaked agenda.

I am all for these peaceful demonstrations that at least let the people in power know we're not all drinking the Kool Aid.

Hoping they will in fact be peaceful and make a statement that can't continue to be ignored...isn't that what "Democracy" is all about,the people's voices being heard?

I believe jackin 18 wheelers full of cigarettes & food bound for big name Grocery outlets is a pretty big shot, that would be heard throughout the universe.

Why I dont have alot of faith in world net daily because of the people that run it. I figured on march is being the time when people would start to uprise I really hate being right this much. But on a better note it took 6 + 7 years before a large amount of people now believe 9-11 was a inside job perhaps 8 years of bush and 8 years of clinton people are finnaly wiseing up. Who knows what will become of this but I know for a fact that Mr. Obama and his administration are going to be in for a rude awaking if they think there going down a bush/clinton path and no one will not stand up to it.

Viva la francia.

Ditto, kiddo.

Except ours isn't paid off yet.

We put money down, got a decent fixed rate, and that is the first bill to be paid every month.

About to start standing up duplex apartments on the edge of town as rentals in anticipation of the economic downturn. I figure 400 per month with 200 dollar security deposit would be reasonable.

Just curious but where were those "patriots" when bush was shredding our Constitution and invading iraq using false intelligence???

I think these "patriots" are really just opportunist, neo-cons who have absolutely no interest in protecting our country.

You would be wrong there.
I was one of many who were VERY vocal about Bush's policies. And I was this way while serving as an Army Infantry soldier.

I am even more outraged with Obama, however.
Because the guy is still ramrodding the same wrong-headed policies that Bush put into practice.

Don't make it a partisan issue. Did you watch the video David posted?
Notice how many people aren't agreeing and applauding because the guy is Obama hating (he isn't at all, actually) but instead agreeing with and applauding the wisdom laid out by our forefathers!

People like myself aren't pissed at Obama for anything other than the fact that he is the other side of the same damned coin that Bush represents. No matter which way it lands, the little guy gets screwed!
And people are tired of it.

I totally agree with you!

They had to wait eight years to figure out how corrupt the american government was and when Bush Jr. left they suddenly saw the light and are attacking Obama like a pack of hungry wolfs. If thats not opportunism then I don't know what is.....

lol are you serious? "tea party". What is that going to help?

How about the subsequent bailouts?!
Oh, that stuff is alright because Obama is signing them?

I would rather people wake up late rather than never at all.

The people who make this a partisan issue are doing more harm than they could possibly understand.

This isn't about Bush. This isn't about Obama. This is about the whole damned lot of them INCLUDING each and every single member of Congress who was responsible in any way, shape or form with the formation of these disasterous bills.

Obama gets no love here. He signed off on them while he was in and he pushed for them when Bush was in.

Any attempt to make this partisan is to the detriment of us all...

Divide and Conquer.

Please people, think about it.
