While WND has found information for more than 700 tea parties, the American Family Association is reporting Tax Day protests for 2,000 cities – and Tax Day Tea Party claims the movement has now spread overseas.
With less than two days before citizens take to the streets, the mainstream media are beginning to report the widespread movement – but many major outlets are doing so in critical columns and television reports.
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote, "Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn't feel right to make fun of crazy people."
He said the tea parties are not an accurate representation of public sentiment.
"They're AstroTurf (fake grassroots) events, manufactured by the usual suspects," he wrote.

Although I will not be attending one, I definitely am in sympathy with the tea parties. I will probably display a yard sign signifying my support for the tea party.
I am not a Republican. I do not affiliate with political parties because I believe it is important to make up your own mind on issues instead of being swayed by your party.

Apparently some folks caught some government types spying on those at a Tea Party. They got out of a government car and started filming. Here are the pictures with a bit of the story.
hmmm ... wasn't expecting that.
But I'll still go.
It is going to be amusing to watch tomorrow... who wants to bet faux news is going to pull the plug on their coverage when they realize how small the turn out is actually going to be.

We’re going to ask open ended questions that seem to have a slight conservative bent to (hopefully) get them to open up and just start ranting. Then, we take any examples of racism, hatred, ignorance, and stupidity that we catch on camera and make a little movie out of it. Probably a YouTube special.
