What is the problem?  The Republican tea parties around the country to protest against excessive government spending and the proposed tax increases to the upper-class (or at least wealthiest Americans) are a great idea.  We have always been a nation that values the freedom of expression.  As long as the protests–I mean parties–remain peaceful, who cares?

We must learn to accept the concerted efforts of the disconcerted to complain about what President Obama is doing to our country.  Obama didn’t start the bail-out madness.  He just continued it.  So, if the insiduous economic course of treatment our President is ensuing to repair and re-build a bloodied economy is far-fetched, please, place the blame and proper socialist characterizations right where they belong.  A number of Repubs were in agreement with the economic aid the government decided to give those on Market Street and Wall Street before Obama smiled with his perfect teeth  and ever raised his right hand.  Remember?

I firmly predict we will not see another Revolutionary War.  American Repubs, although empassioned and committed, have become more concerned with the superfluous.

So with the recent history of my fellow conservatives who largely identify themselves as Republicans, this is really no big deal.  The concern that I have is with false advertising.  When someone hosts a tea party, I expect tea.  With all of the musings about these  tea parties, this is my concern:  Who is hosting one where I can get a good cup of a flavorful antioxidant like mandarin white tea?
