Skip to comments.Got news for the Marxist media. It's not about the Tea, or the Tax. It's the Tyranny, stupid.

When you boil it all down, the original Boston Tea Party was not about the Tea. Nor the Tax. History proves it was about the Tyranny. Same as today.
See you at the Tea Party.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
. . . sorry . . . don’t have the colorful large html version at work here at the college.
I saw a sign at the Tea Party in Jacksonville that read, “Wake up and smell the dictator.” My favorite sign of the day!
Thank you. I am so tired of hearing it categorized as about taxes.
aargh! i wish, but i don't live in fresno. :^)
(unless you made a trip to cincinnati).
Smell the satanic treasonous oligarchic gloablist dictator stooge!
It’s the Obam-ACORN plan to take away the right to vote in private!
It’s the Obamarmaggedon plan to cut the US military by 20%!!
It’s the ObamaWorld’s quest to turn America into a quasi-Muslim culture.
It’s Obama’s announced plan to grant Amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
It’s maddening that network TV, even Fox News, is stressing ONLY the tax issue when these Tea Parties are so much more.
Great statement. You hit the nail on the head.
Anyone who doubts it’s tyranny . . . read the quotes ref’d in my tagline from 1900 to present . . . of our “leaders.”
. . . you know . . . the ones who’ve been so diligently leading us to hell for so many decades:
If there are too many—just read one or two per screen full. That’ll give you enough indigestion.
That’s right!!! Hallelujah! You hit it on the money Jim!
Thank you....for saying it.
Oh you mean how they force feed us a constant diet of bovine excrement?
Is this the tyranny you speak of?
Thank you JIM!!!
Got that right Jim!!!!!!
You tell ‘em, JimRob.
rabid inebriated pig poop . . . just the beginning.
They are just warming up . . .
refining their tyrannies and methods.
Like the guy in Wisconsin at the McCain townhall said, “We’re angy about the socialism!”
Our government decides everything...
“Whether you like it or not!” to borrow a quote from Gruesome Anytwosome Newsom.
Demonized traitorous greedy . . . . ‘s decide lots . . .
but only so far as God lets them get away with it . . .
BEFORE HE introduces them to their warmer quarters.
You know what....there would have been NO mistake about what the Tea Parties are about, had it NOT been a bipartisan effort!! The SIGNAGE would have said it all!!
It is being heralded at right-wing anyway...THAT’S exactly what it should have been. IMO
Fox is now doing there best, courtesy of Sheppard Smith, to downplay the DHS report...saying conservatives and our military are “overreacting”...Catherine Herridge chiming in that the (right-wing) Report was begun during the Bush administration and only now released.
Frankly, I hope there are more signs at the tea parties about Socialism, Communism, Constitution, Gun Control, Immigration, etc....all the conservative things that the Report attacks. Bottom line...IMO, with that report, this Administration has declared war on conservatives.
Jim, I wish I lived out west so I could meet you and
thank you in person for all you have done for us and for
our nation, maybe someday you’ll take a southern tour and
we’ll meet, till then thanks for every FReeping Thing.
It is time to be Americans again.
We bow to no flag,
we respect our own.
We bow to no man.
We do what needs being done.
We wait for no one, we lead.
If you wont follow, get out of our way.
We help those in need.
We are friends to those who desire peace.
We are fierce enemys of those who would destroy us.
We free those who desire freedom.
Americans have a god given right to self defense,
on the land and on the sea
in the air and in space.
Dont like it? We dont care.
Try and stop us? If you dare.
America, its not a nation, its not a country,
its a state of mind.
See everyone at the Tea Party.
Will take some pic and post
when I get back.
Freepers to the FRONT!
God Bless America.
I think I've found my sign for today's Tea Party.
That’s the slogan I’m using for my sign.
Springfield, OH 6-8pm Co of Fountaine and High!
Debt is slavery
Fear the Taxpayer!!!
I wish I could make the DC Party but work intrudes.
The media wants to place the focus on a single issue,especially taxes, because if they place the focus upon the start of a tyrannical Government most of the US would actually understand and do something about it.
By bending the focus towards taxes the liberals can then use the envy and greed of the masses to paint conservatives as uncaring greedy money grubbers rather than the freedom and liberty loving people we really are.
Jim, very well said, and so true!
Yes, Jim. My favorite statement about the situation:
“I prefer to live in a country that has a government, instead of the reverse.”
Attended in Denver, big crowd, all ages. Main activity was taking pictures of each other’s signs and costumes, which trended toward colonial-era (tri-cornered hats, etc.). Biggest surprise to me was how many young people were there and into it.
There is a lot written about the number of pages (some 70,000) in the Federal Register, and the 25-30 feet of shelf space required to hold those books. But thats minuscule compared to the approximate 160,000 pages of the Code of Federal Regulations as it currently exists which places an enormous hidden tax burden on the American people, estimated to be almost equal to, if not greater than the tax we all pay on this day every year.
What we hear from Obama is the promise of much more upcoming regulation, far more than that proposed by any prior administration. Regulation of banking, auto manufacturing, green energy, Internet communication and Radio broadcasting, socialized medicine, mandatory public service, executive salaries, credit-card companies, gun rights, hedge fund and derivative markets and your use of electricity, by installing meters that tell you to turn your lights off. (You might as well accept the meter because you wont be able to afford lighting soon anyway.)
And that's just a sample of what's coming.
In short, there is nothing this man, with the assistance of his sycophants in Congress and major media, is not willing to regulate except any tyranny proposed and conducted by the political left.
Freedom is lost under tyranny, yet that's the path this socialist government is storming down - hell-bent on creating less freedom, and much more tyranny to hell with the tax consequences, and to hell with the protesters.
It will prove to get worse than many imagine at this point in time... but, the bottom line stands against them. I dont think they realize just what they are messing with because were not like the Spaniards, the French, the Germans or the Brits that rolled over and accepted socialist tyranny with scarcely a whimper. This fight has only just begun, and the odds are - these tyrants will lose badly.
Now, I've got to get back to work.. 8^)
(making money to help fund the revolution...)
The reference to tyranny says it all for me. That’s exactly what these tea parties are all about.
One thing about it - when you get the kind of unanimous derision across the media that this has garnered, you know you’ve struck a nerve. I wish someone would ask one of them “Why do you find this so threatening?” It’d be interesting to hear that answer. BTT.
The biggest message that can be sent is for the net tea partiers to go viral on a message to contribute to a handful (say 5) conservative candidates running next year. For example, Toomey in PA. Sen a message. Flood the campaign coffers. Keep it focused.
You bet it is!!
If everyone who attended a Tea Party axtivates, we can snuff the Obama revolution in its crib.
