does anyone really believe it is still possible to curb the bankers and other smarties from the Wall str?
The way they took bonus from the taxpayers money was amazingly cynical..

Another question is the budget - is it still possible to balance it?

Take care!

We have to start someplace Vlad, we can't just lay down like sheep, and let them screw us over. American Politicians don't work for us anymore. They need to be reminded who they work for. These guys are in office so long they are all corrupt. They do nothing but take in campaign contributions to assure there re-election. From now on when I vote, I'm just going to vote for the new face. Incumbents must go, staying in Congress for more that two terms guarantees they are corrupted. The other problem is they are all lawyers. Lawyers, lairs whats the difference. We need to go back to the days when the ordinary man could represent us. It seems common sense is not that common at all.

TEA Party!

Anyone out today at any TEA (Taxed Enough Already) parties? I'll be joining a local one at lunch. Hopefully I won't get tear gassed or tazed "Don't taz me bro!".

Anyway, maybe it was because it was a nice day here in the Pac NW but there was a large cop presence out today. I commute a 15 mile stretch of I-90 (from Snoqualmie Ridge / Hwy 18 to Bellevue). I counted 4 bike cops, 1 undercover, 2 marked (SUV and car). Interesting. Makes you wonder if they are expecting any civil unrest.

I went to the one in Denver this morning - it was pretty large and very peaceful. Lots of sign and flag waving, good speakers, of course our governor was conveniently away for the day.... it will be interesting to see if these gatherings affect any governmental changes or if they have any effect at all. People are pretty fed up around here.

Great to hear! Same here for the one I stopped by at in Bellevue. Decent size and pretty peaceful. Only hung out about 45 minutes as I had to get back. I like talking with the people there and trying to understand what they are feeling and how they are interpreting the TEA party. Many are of mixed races, nationalities (that came to the US legally), mixed denominations, and mixed political beliefs. Most commonly, they seemed to be more middle class / blue collar and some white collar.

I really hope people understand that it's not just about taxes but about spending (not just Obama's current and future spending but also the past few years as well). For me personally, growing up through the cold war as a military brat then putting in 7 years myself, I really don't want this country to become more socialist as from a spending standpoint. I believe we are already in debt up to our eyeballs and it’s only going to get worse listening to the analyst before it gets better. We had a taste of inflation with the gas prices and I don’t want to see that happening with all the other basics like food, water, medical, ect. In fact it has happened but not to the dramatic effect that it potentially can happen.

Anyway, I find a couple things interesting. First, I don’t think anyone in Congress is batting an eye at this (just yet). It’s got to get a little more “heated” before they start getting scared of not being re-elected. Second, there still is way too much turmoil and disorganization (see the comments from the link below in the MSNBC discussion board) from the American people to make our non-representing – representatives “fear” us. Plus we have lost our identity as Americans. Most people would rather be labeled Black, White, Asian, Democrat, Liberal, Republican, Conservative, ect before saying they are an “American” (expect for 9-11). Just a way of thinking I suppose. Finally, did the colonist ask for permission from the british or make sure they had the correct permits before dumping the tea into the Boston Harbor?
