    These idiots are nothing more than a bunch of pissed off rethugs and cowardly "libertarians" who are pissed off that a black president is spending "their" money. It eats them alive that their beloved decorated war hero didn't win, that Rove couldn't steal a 3rd presidential election, so now they're taking to the streets in protest. These morons are bound by their hatred of two things - Obama and brown-skinned immigrants. Listen to any right-wing talk show, and you'll hear hateful vitriol spewed forth on a daily basis towards both of these targets.

    1. yep
    And the small turnouts shows that the nation is getting better and better on the racial facet of late! The change just in my lifetime has been a good thing.
    Really? Small turnout? Really? We had 15,000 in Atlanta alone. Really, small turnout? Really?

    Rush just said estimates for all parties total 189,000.

    143. Raleigh included several blacks interviewed on local news
    The local parties seemed to be attended by a grab-bag of groups. From interviews and signs seen on local news I saw Ron Paul followers, misc anti-government or anti-tax groups, home schoolers, people worried about the debt left for their children and grandchildren, and the expected D.H. crowd.

    A couple of the people interviewed on the local stations were black; they said the same kinds of things as other attending the rallies.
    How dare you!!!!:mad:

    22. Okay. There is one going on in my town, and there are like 3 white people there.
    (out of about 150-200). Maybe it's just because I live in a very racially diverse town.

    23. Oh really. Would you be willing to post a picture of that crowd?
    I'm having a very hard time believing that out of a crowd of 200 teabaggers, that only 3 of them would be white.

    27. Apparently you've never been to Merced, CA. There aren't too many white people here.
    And there are many conservative latinos. Yes, I will link to some pics when the local teabagger group updates their webpage.

    28. Yep, I looked up your Merced Tea Party. Hosted by UC Merced College Republicans.
    I still feel that the vast majority of these tea party types are racist assholes.
    This tea party only had a few white people there.
    No way. You'll have to show me pictures.
    Well, there's not many white people in this city.
    I saw the pictures. I still think they're a bunch of racists.

    How hard to you have to try to be that fuckin' stupid?

    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    The DUmmies still think this is all about Democrats versus Republicans and various special interest groups and identity politics.

    It isn't. It's about people who have played by the rules and watched their elected representatives (from all sides) act like drunken sailors in port. Our politicians have shown themselves to be liars and cheats who will say anything to get elected and once in office they will sell anything of ours to buy more votes.

    That's what this is all about.

    Of course, being DUmmies, they rely on the most cherished tactic of theirs: Accusing us of racism with no proof.
    "These idiots are nothing more than a bunch of pissed off rethugs and cowardly "libertarians" who are pissed off that a black president is spending "their" money."
    No, loser. We're pissed that a Socialist president is taking too much of the money we earned, and "Redistributing" it to bailouts, extremists, etc.

    At the Orlando tea party yesterday, there was a very nice mixture of different races and ethnic groups.

    I think Rush under reported Tea Party numbers......

    Houston, had in excess of 8,250 in documented attendance within the confines of Jones Plaza. Police kept an unknown amount of participants because of safety concerns. It had been estimated to be in excess of 12,000.

    The Woodlands have attendance numbers in excess of 4,000

    Sugarland had in excess of 2,000

    San Antonio had attendance in excess of 10,000

    That alone in four locations in Texas comes to 24,000, add Atlanta at 12,000 (underestimated by my count, because you under report to be realistic) and you have 36,000 alone.

    Face it, the ilk of CNN and Pelosi fear an informed populace. Couple that with the inevitable tax increases on the middle class, and the Tax and Spend members of Congress (republican and democratic alike) will nervously look over there shoulders.

    People are pissed........because they are asked to repeatedly pay more in taxes and fees, and they see no accountability from their government, local, state, and national.

    What will really surprise the pols and the media is that the tax revolt will come from Democratic states,....New York, California, Michigan, Connecticut, Mass, and New Jersey. People are fed up. To paraphrase Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday, there's a reckonin' coming:D

    I think that must be the numbers from the major ones. I can think of 6 rallies here in GA off the top of my head.

    I agree, I know of 23 just in the greater Houston area. True, they may be less than a 1,000, but guess what?
    It's not the astroturf that Nancy Pelosi stated that the Teabag parties are. She is fearful that this is truly a deep rooted, grass root tsunami that is just beginning to gather strength and power. Why?,.. because it threatens her and her lust for power and prestige. Her attitude is very much alike Marie Antoniette against the people of France..........we all know what happened to her.

    Solid evidence that libs don't let truth get between them and their opinions.
