    You can attend the convention. Yes, a real grassroots movement.

    Here in these parts, like many others, the original thrust was that of the original Tea Party - HIGH TAXES.

    This group, having shanghai'd the title, is taking a completely alternative direction and is shredding the typical conservative. Sorry, these banana's are way out on the right limb and the branch is about to break off.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    What is sad about this group is that they have no solutions whatsoever. I swear to God if they had some interesting ideas I would listen. Our country is in such sad shape that the continuing anger and rage is getting tiring...but the media love to push it.

    I just read this morning that Tancredo gave such a vicious speech that even the crowd there thought it too far over the top. It's like, "we get it, OK?". The name-calling and general hatred has to stop.

    Here is the sad thing. TEA is supposed to stand for Taxed Enough Already. Then they charge over 500 bucks to attend the conference. It was good at the start, but looks like they fell for the same crap every other politician does, MONEY!

    If I could just throw away 549 bux on a speech I can get for free on CSPAN (one full of it)....I really wouldn't know what to complian about. So, my $549 is going to cost increases of health care insurance $75 more a month this year....my property taxes are up too....something about schools needing money (surprise).
