Hundreds of protesters holding signs with messages like, “We can’t deport them all, but we can start with you,” gathered on the lawn of the Texas Capitol for one of many July 4 “tea party” protests held nationwide.

    I would like to see these Welfare recipients working 10-12 hours/day bending their back to collect the strawberries and lettuce they buy with my tax money.
    It will be great if they could put so much energy in helping our well-intentioned and talented President to rescue the country they claim to defend.
    What a pathetic bunch of fruitcakes!

    The conservatives have earned, and continue to earn, the contempt of all thinking people.

    Oh please Steve, since when have liberal groups had the command and control of an entire news station 24/7 much less most all of the Main Stream Media. I am so sick and tired of hearing this same old tired canard of how “conservatives” are some persecuted group. B.S.

    Conservative politicians and their corporate allies have run this country into the ground for the last thirty years, dismantling every single department that exists to protect the population, destroyed unions which represent the interest of working people nationwide, attempted to railroad habeas corpus (and have effectively done so for anyone labeled a “terrorist”), tried to destroy the Miranda Rights, allowed pollution of our air and water, allowed government more ability to intrude in our lives from social engineering legislation (abortion bans, sodomy laws, racial profiling just to start), used our tax payer money to fund religion proselytizing as a thinly veiled effort to move closer toward a theocracy while saving the money class more money.

    Americans, mostly the working class, were sent off to die so that the rich could secure more oil contracts years into the future and deliver more dictatorship and heavy-handed imperialism to the middle east.

    We’ve all but destroyed central and latin America and have a heavy propaganda machine going against any efforts at democratic reform in those countries.

    I could go on, but I’ll stop here.

    Suffice it to say Steve, your cry of poor representation rings hollow. And further more, contrary to recently developed propaganda, Obama really isn’t even that far left.

    The tea party was nothing more than a pathetically embarrassing show of our country’s lack of investment in public education.

    I was embarrassed.

    I think it’s great to see Conservatives rallying to use their right to free speech. God knows we’ve listened to the liberals using free speech long enough. About time the other side was being heard! GO TEA PARTIERS!

    Unless the current economic mess is realized by the people, many groups with mal-intent will surface under some disguise to bring economic relief. Instead of coming out in front of the curent economic situation, the politicians are passing the “buck”.

    Many innocent and hard working people who are struggling to make ends meet are watching the billionaires list on Forbes Magazine grow ever more. There is too much money in the hands of a select few while many others struggle to save their homes.
