Well, if

-he's a teenager,

-and he ever makes the mistake of falling asleep in the company of his friends,

-and they have a cell phone with a camera,

he's probably gonna learn the hard way way what tea-bagging is.

I was there, and here is what the man in the photo was saying:
"Hi, folks. Nice day out here. You know, I'm actually a Democrat, and I have to admit this is the first time I've ever attended a political demonstration that doesn't involve burning the American flag, setting fire to parked cars, or ending the day in a detention cell along with a bunch of drunk hippies. It feels good knowing I'm finally making a real difference, and I totally feel safe bringing my son along with me."
i gave you a nuts icon. not because i think you are crazy, its the other kind of nuts.

92% of the american people were against the "stimulation" package, yet they passed it anyway, I call that no representation.

Take Your Son to Work Day. The man is sharing with his son his job as a professional paid protester.

They can protest until the cows come home. But when they make a DIRECT reference to historical event, they attempt to take on the relevancy of that event, and that's ridiculous.

Ok - it doesn't really matter what the first tea party was about and if you believe it does matter then you've completely missed the point. The first tea party was the one of the first times American people got together to stand up for what they believe in, just as these folks who are attending the protests today are doing. How hard is that to understand? This is what America is all about - say what you feel because you have a RIGHT to be heard!

This protest wasn't about taxation with representation. Didn't "tea" stand for "Taxed Enough Already"? It's relevant because it's about TAXES - not the same exact taxes, but it's the tie that binds, so to speak. You take it in a negative light and ridicule it because you disagree, and there's nothing wrong with that because you (just like the rest of us) have that RIGHT.

FOIL

as in aluminum foil.
aluminum foil hats.

paying taxes wouldn't be so bad, if i knew they were going to help people.
instead HALF of the tax budget goes to current and past war.
