Besides your title that is highly passive aggressive which will bring out the very people that are not going to answer your question, but rather use
the opportunity to just make light of fellow Americans because their beliefs are on the other side of the fence.
Other than that, your OP is not what I am highlighting. It asked questions, it was thought provoking and such, but you are asking such a limited
group (how many ATS'ers are Tea Party goers?) The first couple of posts where good and then the thread degenerated into hit thread it was inevitable
to become. You as the author have a responsibility to try and regain control and refocus the participants, but instead you took glee in the
rable-rousing that ensued.
Then, because of the lack of response here that was in support of the protest, you make a conclusion that it was nothing? When did protests have to
be big to be important? At what point or threshold does a protest become viable and newsworthy for you? 10 people? 100 people? 1000 people?
Overall, when I pointed out that the very people that have been not utilizing a critical thinking skill in their body and ultimately made this thread
into a 'trash' the tea party protests, you fire back that I lack a sense of humor.
So, because I point out the irony in the situation, I don't have a sense of humor. I shall remember that when a thread has completely regressed into
just making fun of what you stand for or support and I will just tell you that you have to gain a sense of humor...its all in good fun right?
