  1. The implications of the Tea Party movement

    Having attended more than one Tea Party gathering, I can assure everyone that the amount of disinformation regarding the Tea Parties is astounding. The amount of fear mongering and lies being told by the liberal media is quite sad, almost to the point of laughable.
