Taxed Enough Already Roundup (Updates!)



One of the best videos that I have seen so far today has to be this one from You Remember That.com: Tea Party Revolution 2009

The coverage of the nationwide TEA Party protests was done very well by the Fox News Channel. Other news channels? Not so much. In fact, MSNBC tried their lunatic-styled best to insult, ridicule, disparage, mock, minimize, and downright LIE about the protests, as well as the protesters.

Here are some of the posts about yesterday's historic day that I have collected:

Citizen Wells: Tea bags, Washington DC, White House, 1 million tea bags, Lafayette Park, First Amendment rights, National Park Services officials, not proper permit

Oh give me a break! These namby-pamby "officials" had to find SOME STUPID REASON to prevent an ongoing protest in Washington DC!

Gotta love this comment there:

Where is the difference between “Not a proper permit” and “not a proper birth certificate.”?

If you know what I mean

One rule for the elite and anther for the general populace is not democracy. It is actually what the people who fought for Independence from the House of Hanover were most upset about.

Loved this poster describing ACORN in an acronym:

[Second note: There seems to be some difficulty viewing the videos. However, just the still pictures say a lot! In the third video, there is a great sign that has a photo of Obama, Reid, Pelosi etc. and reads: "Obama and his merry band of thieves." Ha!]

"I listed the Fed. Gov't as a dependent on my taxes this year"

"I'm not even 2 years old, and I'm already in debt!"

"In God We Trust - Obama and Congress? Eh...not so much."

Excerpt:

I just have one word: Wow. More than 800 tea parties across the country. Here’s your first photo/vid round-up from the events across the country, large and small, every corner of this great nation (hit your refresh button often…I’ll keep updating…11:20pm…just added tons more crowd pix and vid…trying to keep ‘em all in one post to give you the full breadth and scope of the protests — not just the size, but the reach, a true sense of which is missing from the MSM coverage. More coming…):


Keep it coming!

Add a link in comments and I will post it here!

World Net Daily: A REVOLUTIONARY IDEA
Coast-to-coast tea parties put lawmakers on notice
Taxpayers descend upon politicians in numbers far beyond expectations


Excerpt:

Guests included Michael Reagan, Rep. Tom McClintock, singer Lloyd Marcus and Fox News' Neil Cavuto.

"In the 27 years since I came to this building, I have never seen a protest this large," McClintock said. "The silent majority is no longer silent."

He continued, "Some time along the way, we lost our country. Don't you think it's time to take it back?"

The crowd applauded with excitement.


Well said, Mr. McClintock.

I voted for Tom McClintock when he ran against Arnold for Governor of CA. We would have been FAR BETTER OFF if RINO Schwarzenegger lost - and Mr. McClintock won. I hope McClintock runs again. I think that he would have far more voters on his side this time!

And this from a returning vet from Iraq:

Air Force reservist Sgt. Kevin Steele told WND he returned from his second tour in Iraq two weeks ago.

"I think this is just wonderful to see," he said. "I'm disappointed to see how much things have deteriorated since I left."

Asked for his thoughts on the Department of Homeland Security report warning against the possibility of violence by unnamed "right-wing extremists" and specifically singling out returning war veterans as particular threats, Steele said he was baffled and felt a deep sense of betrayal.

"I couldn't believe it," he said. "I'm the guy they're watching now? Give me a break!"

He continued, "You can send me over there and put a weapon in my hands, and now you worry about me? It's disappointing and disheartening."


Janet Napolitano should be ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED OF HERSELF!

I don't even care that she now has seen it as "politically expedient" to apologize. She never should have made such a statement in the first place!

She's a left-wing lunatic who doesn't belong as Homeland Security Chief. Period!

Tea Party: The Results; July 4, 2009 is Next

*******

Ha ha ha!! This is GREAT! All the liberal left loons can do is insult, disparage, and dismiss the hundreds of thousands of people who showed up to protest their awful big government taxing and spending policies.

They don't know what to do, so they are CALLING ATTENDEES OF THE TEA PARTIES UGLY NAMES! How juvenile....
