Saturday, July 4 will be another day of Tea Parties held all across the United States. Many of us are still trying to figure out what the Tea Parties are all about. Originally, I thought that they were about taxes. TEA did stand for ‘Taxed Enough Already.” That seems reasonable. Bi-partisan folks coming together to just say NO to new taxes and new debt. I think I am wrong though. Just looking at the agenda for the local tea party, it is unclear what the real theme is.
A Republican friend of mine suggested that it was just a lot of hot air. Now it seems to me that the Tea Parties are anti-Obama rallies. Can we now say the Tea Parties aren’t bi-partisan and that they are Obama-bashing? The local tea party has the much discussed FAIR guy in attendance. So are the Tea Parties now protests about illegal immigration?
