Well, here's something to ponder when you consider what the American people really want.
Last week, there was another national tea party in Washington. The event was promoted for several weeks, and featured Representatives Michelle Bachmann and Mike Pence, heroes of the teabag movement. Here's a picture:
Now, here is another event from this week, which interested the media far less:
several thousand that showed up to protest Republican attacks on working people, in the State of New Hampshire, which has a population of under a million and a half. Needless to say, it was basically ignored by the press.
Once again, I must point out that the Tea Party basically does not exist. It is a bought-and-paid-for dumb show created to enable the press to claim that a substantial number of people in this country are so stupid that they actually support destroying their own lives in order to increase the wealth of the rich. These two pictures are all you need to know how the real people of America feel. Unfortunately, in the face of the Republican juggernaut, our opinions do not count for much.
