    Thousands of Anti-Tax 'Tea Party' Protesters Turn Out in U.S. Cities

    Thousands of anti-tax "tea party" protesters took to the streets Wednesday in some of the nation's biggest cities -- including Boston, Tulsa and Sacramento -- voicing their opposition to high taxes and big government spending.

    Close to 2,000 demonstrators in Boston -- some dressed in colonial wigs with tea bags hanging from their glasses -- held signs and read speeches lambasting government spending since President Obama took office.

    The demonstrations are part of a larger grassroots movement against government spending called Taxed Enough Already, or TEA -- giving name to the Tax Day Tea Parties -- and come more than 235 years after the original Boston Tea Party revolt against taxes.

    Crowds of up to 5,000 are expected in 300 cities in 50 states, including New York, Atlanta, Tulsa, Philadelphia, Boston, Hartford, and Indianapolis.
    CNN is poo pooing it al by blaming FOX for highlighting it.

    Another reason why FOX dominates cable news....they report it.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Just before someone says "LOLZ Bush spent too! hypartisan LOLZ!" I want to quote/paraphrase from Glenn Beck:

    "...these tea parties have nothing to do with Obama's spending, it has nothing to do with Bush, it has everything to do with Bush and Obama spending for years!..."

    in a nutshell.

    Good. I'm glad people are standing up for what they believe in. I wish I would have known about it, they did one at the local courthouse at noon and there were about a hundred people there. I would have liked to have gone.

    Jesus... She went in and attacked the people right off of the bat. What a ****ing joke. Obviously the man is not interested in a $400 tax credit. She would know that if she actually knew what she was talking about.

    I went to see one of these rallies with my own eyes today. It was pretty much what you'd expect... Lots of hyperbole, cliches, and mindless slogan chanting... Not my cup of tea (hur hur)...

    That's unfortunate. I expected better things.
