Sean Hannity asks Vice President Cheney if he's "as surprised as he is that the country is so divided" and, given the all-consuming nature of the terrorist threat, if we should "even be debating the Patriot Act and NSA wiretapping".
I would like to announce our April 15 Tea Party show at 9 p.m. ET from the Atlanta Tax Day Tea Party Protest at the Georgia State Capitol.
Stay tuned to "Hannity", check our Web site and listen to the radio show for more details to come on how YOU can participate.
The Pittsburgh cop-killer was a devotee of the Glenn Beck/We Surround Them and StormFront movements. His belief that the election of Barack Obama signals the rise of tyranny that must be opposed by any means necessary was supported rhetorically by the right wing talk radio echo chamber.
The Tea Party Movement was organized to oppose the president’s economic program of tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans and support for the working class. Unfortunately, like the Sarah Palin rallies, violent elements feel right at home. The White Supremacist group StormFront is encouraging its members to join the tea party. The rhetoric is chilling.....
.....Whites Forward-upper Midwest “Who says we're going in with only a focus on taxes, or that many of the folks in these protests aren't also concerned about our people to some degree? Go where our people are starting to stand up around symptoms of the problem, and INTERVENE to guide them. Just because these started as an anti-tax protest doesn't mean that they must be limited and can't be developed upward toward an explicitly racial mass struggle. At the very least, you will find some Whites who are receptive...you will make gains one way or the other.

Lord willing and the river between here and Savannah doesn't rise I'll be at the tea party on River Street April 15 th.
I read post after post accusing all of us of sitting on our butts and not doing anything to change what our government has become.
I will stand up and be counted as a lover of my great country. I will work to uphold our constitution until there is no more breath in my body.
I will be standing beside teachers, doctors, business owners and people from every walk of life at our tea party.

As a liberal I can say that we... those of us who objected with the Republican and bush minor policies over the past 8 years were labeled as hating America and blame America first and traitors and siding with terrorists and so forth... now we are being labeled as socialists...
... it is the hard right that branded us as such and smeared us non-stop... now the shoe is on the other foot and you guys object to your branding... while I don't like any form of branding all I can say is poor babies.

Here's the thing in a nutshell to me .....
If you want to protest the behavior of the idiots in Washington D.C. that we have elected to represent us because they aren't, then EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE who disagrees with their throat ramming policies ought to NOT file a tax return or write a check to cover taxes owed.
Revolution is at hand. The time to Revolt is now. If you don't do it now, you never will.

Something I have noticed that has been happening with increasing frequency ever since election day is an attempt to label anyone who disagrees with the government, the president, or wants all of the asinine bills congress has been pushing through or trying to push through to stop, as a neo-con, republican, fringer, (enter your favorite label here). Prior to the election those same people were labeled as liberals, democrats, fringers, etc. Prior to the election they were accused of listening to too much MSNBC and CNN. Now they are accused of listening to too much Fox News. Both prior to and after the election they were just "mad their side lost the election". Prior to the election they were told to get up off their butts and do something if they didn't like what the government was doing or to leave the country if they don't like it. Now that they are trying to do something, regardless of whether or not it will work, they are told to quit being sore losers and racists.
There are many people here who have disagreed with what the government has been doing ever since Bush was elected the first time, and still disagree with it today. There are some who only disagreed under Bush and some who only disagree now that Obama is in office, true. But the majority have been disagreeing for over 8 years now. Yet no matter who is in office they always seem to be on the wrong side of the issue according to some posters here.
What that being said, I have a few questions for whoever wants to answer them and one specifically for the OP.
