15. Because we have freedom of speech, as defined in the Constitution,
I will refer to them as tea baggers. The tea baggers do not realize there are more amendments in the Constitution than the 2nd amendment. Tea Baggers would not know the the reason for the Boston Tea Party if it fell on them like a piano from a 40 story
building. Tea Bagger is not the 'N' word. It is a term that the so called "Tea Party-ers" first used themselves.
Taxes are lower under Obama. The tea baggers need to get a clue.
