All across this land of ours, there were in excess of 500 tea parties (inspired by Dr. Orly Taitz) to take place on 15 April 2009, "Tax Day." Americans of all shapes and sizes came out by the thousands to protest, but where was the media? If the media bothered to report on the events, they misinformed the public, saying there were 300 people, when clearly the videos showed a thousand or more; they would say there was a poor showing when obviously there was a huge turn-out; or they just wouldn't show up at all. Time and again, we would hear, "where's the media?" on a video, when you know that if it had been a video of a few gays protesting on a street corner, it would have been covered on the news for sure, and all with a positive spin, even after they had clearly violated someone else's rights.
Here, CNBC is trying to make fun of the Tea Parties, but they are caught unawares when Rick Santelli (God bless him!), the person they thought would agree with them, was man enough to speak the truth, and he told them that he was proud of what they were doing! (Also notice that Rick was not alone in his sentiments--a guy in the background gives him the "thumbs up" sign while he was speaking!) Watch the amazing video for yourself:
I don't think the media were capable of understanding what was happening. Even Pelosi was in denial, trying to say that she knows what the American people want, while right under her nose, millions of Americans were protesting the very things that she, Reid, and the rest of them have been trying to shove down our throats since Obama got into office. Her she is, admitting that Obama's plan for "redistributing the wealth" is what they intend to do, no matter what the people want:
They have been on a spending spree with money that does not exist! Can't anyone see that? While Bush was in office, they were counting the pennies, but now, miraculously, they are blowing non-existent money like there is no tomorrow! I think, besides Pelosi, Reid, Emanuel and Geithner, that we should fire every one of the Representatives that signed that gigantic bailout package without reading it!
"We're Not Gonna Take It Any More!" That's right...and in plain, old English, I think that this video says it best:
Until next time...stay safe, stay well, and may God bless you all.
