So I guess 4000 or more of my closest friends this past Wed don't know anything about the first amendment according to most of the MSM. We should not be protesting the LARGEST spending binge in HISTORY

Bullocks I say to them, BULLOCKS.

The TEA party this past Wed in Lansing Michigan was a rousing success and surpassed anything I was expecting. The Mich State Police estimated the crowd at 4000 plus and unlike most demonstrations on the left, everyone was peaceful and polite!!! It is now the job of all those who attended and those who could not but wanted to to start putting pressure on our elected officials to enact change.

I had the chance to meet some of the organizers and groups on this day and witness some of the hard work they put into it making it look easy.

A big thank you to all the people affiliated with Americans for Prosperity, The New Patriot Revolution, Smart Girl Politics, Fair Tax and the Mackinac Center. I know I'm missing some groups but I was not able to get around to everyone but rest assured there are more groups out there ready to help move this country back to it's foundation.

This administration did not create the deficits. It inherited them. The protesters were the supporters of the last eight years, but prefer to deny that reality.

Melissa your right that the administration Inherited deficit spending. Candidate Obama RAN on the platform the John Mccain would be 4 more yrs of President Bush on spending. President Obama has now proposed to spend more to add to the deficit in a 2 yr period than Georg Bush did in close to 7 yrs according to the Congressional budget office..http://www.cbo.gov/doc.cfm?index=10014.

If it was bad when Bush was in office ( which it was by the way) why is it OK now? Because Obama has a D after his name?


The people at the rallies were concerned about this and the ones who voted for Bush are able to recognize he was wrong. Hopefully Obama voters will soon do the same

Plus the MAJORITY in congress was was democrat for the last 2 years of Bush's term! However, I do agree that he should not have signed the bills!
