If one TEA Party member were pepper sprayed (and it wouldn't have been
done by the police; likely himself to look like a victim) ...

He'd have his own cable talk show by now ...

1. As I recall, the Tea Party folks were pushing and shoving and very
disorderly about getting into crowded meetings between congressmembers and constituents.

On a couple of occasions they brought guns to events. There was no pepper spray. There was no police repression.

I also did not notice anyone escorting Tea Party people out of meetings between congressmembers and constituents when the Tea Partiers did their version of Mic Check.

2. You did not see any of that is because democrats for the most
part will hear then out

Warren lets a heckler speak, Ryan has the police pull the people out of the room and then makes jokes about them
Bachmann tells the teabaggers to storm congressional offices

3. People should know that a great number
disagree with the right wing thought. They don't experience it unless we make it so.

Sure, they may complain and get upset, but it is our duty to try and reason with them.

Do not forget that they are Americans as well, and even though they are misguided and on the wrong

path, if we dismiss them we are indeed divided.


At my age, I am surprised and overwhelmed at the youth in this movement to overcome SO MUCH. At the same time, older people and united people such as unions and students are in it to win it.

Look for the Spring. It brings much promise.
