Re: Happy Tax Day!

Well in our area we have around 4 Tea Parties going on and it seems like they are getting a pretty good turn out for a work day. I'm sure as the day goes on the crowds may grow. HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com

I'm sensing juuuuuust a bit of sarcasm from you these days, 70. Given up on trying to convince our local socialists the error of their ways?

I drove through the VB City Center area at around noon to check in on the gathering and it was pretty accurately described in the Pilot about 600 - 700 people, lots of signs, peaceful, didn't see any counter-protestors. Traffic in the area was no problem.

Re: Happy Tax Day!

What is up with all of these "Tea Parties", chanting they want the USA back and freedom? We are trying to do that when we elected Obama into office, duh.

Sounds like they should call it "Sour Grapes Party" instead of "Tea Party".

Agreed, 100%. After all we've done for our kids the least they can do is let us spend them into oblivion. Come to think of it, they can't do anything about it anyway, most of them can't vote yet. Let's keep spending away!

I still believe that Obama got elected chiefly because most Americans wanted someone in office who was at least talking about getting out of Iraq. John McCain on the other hand, was telling us we might be there another hundred years.

To all those Republicans and "conservatives" who were stubborn as a mule about staying in Iraq -- I wonder how they feel now? I don't like the march toward socialism either. If you had the choice between 'staying the course' in Iraq, or slowing down size, scope of power and spending by the U.S. government, what would you choose?

Most of you know how I feel about it -- I'll take saving our own country against socialism over securing Iraq every single day of the week.

I was there around 11. I think Lee Greenwood was singing. I was looking for the counter-protestors too, but didn't see any.

I wonder what the staffers in Jim Webb's office right across the street were thinking?

I think most people at least glance at their pay stubs now and then.

Its about people who are tired of high taxes and growing goverment at every chance they get. I don't look at this as a Rep. or Dem. thing because both parties are guilty.

If you don't know what you're paying in taxes your problem is incompetence toped with inept personal finance skills. Taxes are the least of your problems. Has it ever occurred to you that people look at their tax returns now and then? That they have an idea what they are paying? Perhaps you want them to know to the penny? What exactly is the point you're trying to make? That if people knew what they were paying the would think like you? They would be outraged?


You should refrain from this line of argument in the future, it makes you look really retarded. No disrespect.

Sounds like a Pity Party to me and I don't know a single Dem that is going.

I love how liberals call people stupid, retards and then throw in that crap of "NO Disrespect". That is just what it is so don't call me something then act like it was nothing. Now that retarted. With disrespect. Why would not knowing what you pay in taxes be incompetence toped with inept personal finance skills? Why would it matter to a point because there is really nothing a person can do but pay the taxes. The point was most people have taxes taking out of their check and they really just don't pay attention to what they pay. I tried to find the poll but if I remember correctly something like 58% (maybe even higher) did not know.
