WTH is Up with these Tea Parties?

I've been watching these so called Tea Parties and protests on the news lately and it makes me lament the death of impartial, unbiased, investigative journalism.

One birther groups announced that they had as many as two million people and on television who could tell? But the real number was only 60,000. That's a good amount of people but it ain't two million.

Does it bother anyone else that journalists don't hit some of these folks with facts disputing or disproving their claims?

You would think that President Obama was trying to arrest and hold people without charges! Oh, that was Bush!

You would think he gave a tax cut to the Richest Folks in America! That was Bush too! Sorry!

You would think that one of his lawyers thought that the Geneva Conventions against Torture were flimsy and didn't apply to us? Is water boarding really torture? Oops that was John Yu and John Ashcroft!

Obama proposes a "Soda Tax" and Coca Cola calls it Stalin ism? Funny, no one complained when the "Sin Tax" was put on the cigarettes!

Obama wants to reform health Care! But he's called a Nazi cause he wants a Public Option included for Citizens to buy their Governments plan. He's not forcing anyone to take it! He's not banning Private insurance! That's not even on the table yet there are protests!

I don't get it!

BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!

I'm with you 100% on this. Americans seem to be led by any wind.

i think the followers of Beck and his ilk enjoy being taken for a ride. i mean they can't marry their siblings so they have to have something else to occupy their time.
