Yeah, to the guy who said it was like a klan rally -- some guy stood up and said some ignorant things, and he got booed off the stage. I saw a lot of people who were motivated for some "hope and change" away from Obama, but the only "rage" I saw in their eyes was towards the one guy who seemed to be racist.

Good article, pretty non-biased. All in all it was a peaceful gathering of honest Americans who feel that they need to have their voices heard.
I was there also

I thing that this is a good article. I really don't see in anyway how this could be preceived as a klan rally. Considering the racist guy was booed off stage.
More importantly that fools statemnts sould not overcast the real meaning behind the tea party. we want freedom for ouselves and our future. There was a diverse crowd at the rally. More so than most people realized it seems that perople from every background are interested in regaining their lost rights. Good article good rally.

Let's face it. The Tea Party movement is not about taxes or "we the people". It is a reaction against the changing world around them. America may be number one in your hearts, but it is far from number one in things like education, healthcare, standard of living, life expectancy, etc. China and India are flexing their political and economic muscles. Now these people are watching the country become more diverse (ie. less white) and they don't know their place anymore.

The problem with the Tea Party is the answers don't lie in conservative thinking. As the world changes around us, we must change as well. Basic evolution (which most teabaggers don't believe in). If we don't change and adapt we will die. I love this country and want to see it move forward. If we stay where we are and continue to divide, the rest of the world will pass us by.

Quite obvious, Sonny, you have never been to a KKK Rally; huge difference! The YDR reporter states: "The crowd of about 300 (((((seemed))))) united in a (((((few))))) things:...".
Then goes on for 3/4th of the article to explain participants concerns. A FEW things; yea, right. Old, young, gun totin', bible carryin', disgruntled folks who are fed up with conditions in THIS, the "Greatest Nation in the World". Don't Tread on Me/Love it or Leave It. Those are MY kind of people. Either join us in OUR fight to improve conditions or suffer our wrath when the final count is made during mid-term elections. We can if we stand together. Go get 'em Tea Party patriots! Let the naysayers express all the opinions they wish, cause we really don't care about your negativity!

Oh yea, look at "them" fools walking around in VA/NJ/MA; the FAD is over for them, but not for US. What's with the gun bit? Where YOU live, the BOYS are walkin' around with guns, shootin' up the place, killin' the brothas; I have yet to see ONE Tea Party Fool shoot anyone! And here is a sign exclusively for YOU: "YOU ARE FULL OF $HIT"!!! Now you can send this sign message off to the NEW YORK TIMES to include on their list of horrible statements/actions by "A" Tea Party Member. "Oh, see, I told you how they are; here is your proof". So be IT!

To the person who thinks this is a fad, your are mistaken. Freedom and liberty always remain in society regardless if it does not exist.

These are the same people that were ready to give George Bush their children for their safety, even after Bush signed the Patriot act it was " it's to keep America safe " and now they're walking around in a public arena Starbucks etc just because they can with guns, in short they're nothing but a bunch of right wing talk radio educated idiots ..

just call it the class of Limbaugh, Beck and Coulter listening party, the one genius carrying a sign with Obama dressed up the like the Prince of Saudi Arabia ( those people that made the Bush family rich over many years ) that says fire all Democrats is already advertising to the world she has about as many facts as an empty milk jug.

Even the dumbest socialist liberal knows the end is near for their foolish cause. They are like rats on a sinking ship trapped in the last pocket of air. They make pointless attacks because they have no legitimate argument. Get ready libs, the conservative tsunami hits this November!

Speaking of "goons". Nothing is "gone" for us, we are in a rebirth of the nation mode and certainly ARE NOT angry. What is quite hilarious for me is the way folks "judge" (vote) on these posts. Those angry votes mean nothing, same as the socialist liberal votes will mean nothing in the forthcoming elections. Sunny days will be here again, starting with November elections. Bush/Cheney must also be smiling, as those campaign promises of having ALL troops home within, ah, like a year or so; how's that CHANGE workin' out for you folks. Peace, the last funnel is all that is visible of the dying ship; IT will soon be beneath us; THEY/WE know it to be true. Fair Winds and Following Seas!

and pay no mind to the idiots who oppose us! they are powerless and meaningless! They are ignorant uneducated people who are content with slavery, rape, murder, drugs, killing, and i am absolutely sure non of them have jobs...they are all most likely the 47% who pay no taxes and mooch off of the system (our hard working tax dollars)...and liberals, if you say anything to this, expect no response, BECAUSE WE ARE TAKING OVER!

The crowds will grow as the November election draws closer. The Illegal Muslim socialist will
get the message.
