    A gathering called the Houston Tea Party Society has been pretty active.

    The Tea Party Society is nationwide and pretty strong.

    They will send tea bags to Washington on April 15 in protest of current status.

    Sounds familiar huh

    No lie

    We voted them in and now its time to ban to vote 'em out.

    nice show our reps have against AIG.
    when our goverment chooses to wage war against corporate America is when each rep. will have light shed into their shed.

    All this crap just goes to show, when the system is worked around by a President to get a bill passed quickly more for political expedency than for any other reason (if it REALLY needed to be passed and put in place right away and rushed through why did he wait 4 more days to sign it?) thinks go awry. To me, there are several questions that have not been answered:

    Why did Dodd put in the amendment to allow AIG to pay out the bonuses?
    Why is AIG too big too fail? for that matter why is any business too big to fail?
    Where is the outcry about the soon to be paid Fanny and Freddie bonuses?
    Why the shock that there was provisions in the Socialism Bill, er stimulus bill for the bonuses to be paid? This is telling me that NOBODY that voted for the damn thing read it!!! If they arent reading the bills they are voting on why are they there?

    Don't mail tea bags, just the strings.

    We too are having a Tea Party here in Gonzales this morning.
    Some people pitched in and purchased a huge Come & Take It flag and will be taking it to the Tea Party at the Alamo this evening. It will be interesting to see if Glenn Beck will use it as his back-drop for his TV show tonight. It will be live from the Alamo. :cool:
