Tea Baggers Unite You Have Nothing to Lose But Your Cups

Today is the Start of the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN. This is something to watch because more dangerous things have started with unhappy people. I don't have a problem with a third political party, but the Tea Baggers, as they are known, don't seem to have a whole lot that they are for. These people seem to have a lot that they are against. It is easier to be against that which exists than to create a positive political platform. Hate is a dangerous emotion. And, from what I have seen, there is a lot of hate among the Tea Baggers. It will be interesting to see what former VP candidate and former Governor Palin has to say to this group as she is receiving a $100,000 fee to give a speech. Nice work if you can get it. Well, I am going to just relax and watch and listen. I want to give these people a fair hearing even though I believe that they would not listen or give a fair hearing to a rebuttal.

Stay tuned.

Sit back, listen and then form an honest opinion is a far better approach than any negativism. But it's much harder to do. I enjoyed reading your points of view again.

I have enjoyed watching all the reporting on it and all the major news outlets strenuously avoiding any mention of the racism this group repeatedly and proudly displays.
