Tea Party Reaction

So this is JasonTheAlaskan here, I have the Fixed Pie, but am writing here to follow up on the Tea Party that happened in Anchorage on April 15th. Like I said here, I consider it to be a great success, more than 1,200 people showed up and protested, which was about 10 times the amount of people I honestly would have guessed at. I was very excited to see how the MSM was going to react, considering now, of course, that they can no longer ignore these events. This was a particularly funny account of what happened from an Illinois Rep-
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted "tea party" protests yesterday, labeling the activities "despicable" and "shameful."

"The "tea parties" being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs," Schakowsky said in a statement.

"It's despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful political stunt," she added. "Not a single American household or business will be taxed at a higher rate this year

HAHA, despicable and shameful! Try this on for size, Schakowsky's hubby –Robert Creamer — was sentenced to five months in prison and eleven months of house arrest for bank fraud and tax violations. Schakowsky signed those returns for fradulant non-profits. That is "despicable" and shameful", but just your average Illinois Democrat! Not to mention the fact that democrats hate these rallies, mostly because they not only love taxes, but love not paying them!

Tax cuts! Tax cuts? Why do they continue this lie of tax cuts when it is so easy to prove your taxes in one form or another are going up.

Because people are ignorant Bill! We are so averse to the concept of delayed gratification that people honestly do not care what happens as long as they "get theirs!"
