I know the flame war will probably start with the posting of this. But, here again, I feel it is necessary to note how others are perceiving the hidden agenda of the Tea Party.

I have yet to hear any insightful commentary on this issue other than the usual defacto censures or dismissives of discrediting the sources as being either “racists, divide-and-conquer monsters, Neocons, ignorant etc.,”  I find this troubling from members of this PP Forum who claim to be steeped in the reality of what is really going-on, as oppose to the “others” who have blindly “drunk the kool-aid.” 

I am not implying that wanting less government interference and demanding accountibility by our elected officials, and taking this government back from the banksters etc., is not a novel goal that we are all trying to aspire. However, if it looks like a duck, and common folks are calling it a duck, shouldn’t it at least be given some productive analysis? 

To put our heads in the sand and pretend that the comments being made by other affected groups and others is not important, I think would be a big mistake.

It's pretty easy to form rock solid opinions from inside your studio...  ::)

Might believe these two if I thought they had ever attended a tea party.


Could really care less what Mr. General Electric or Mr. Time Warner thinks. 

These two have become just as irrelevant as O'Reilly. 

They have basically divided the Titanic into Right and Left and are arguing over what lifeboat would be better.
