This anchor from CNN should have been anchored to her desk.  She got downright angry at this poor man who was trying to answer her question, in trying to make his point…

As these protests play out on an almost daily basis, it makes me wonder which of these Conservatives actually voted for the BOwel Movement, and I’m also wondering if they’re kicking themselves for making such a stupid decision…

People showed up in droves to protest the "Stick-It-To-Us" Tax Package pushed by Obama.  I have to say that some of the signs were quite unique.  Here are the highlights…
 
Wednesday’s Tea Party protest inspired some of the most imaginative sign-making in the recent history of demonstrations at the state Capitol in Lansing.  Although the general theme was antitax, individual participants exercised the First Amendment to its fullest, taking aim at an assortment of foes.  Here’s a sampling from the hundreds in attendance:
JESUS SAVES/OBAMA SPENDS
DON’T TAX ME BRO’
YOU WANT CHANGE, I’D RATHER HAVE THE BENJAMINS
TAX NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU
YOU CAN PUT LIPSTICK ON A SOCIALIST BUT HE’S STILL A SOCIALIST
CHAINS WE CAN BELIEVE IN
SAVE TREES/STOP PRINTING MONEY
I’M 2 MONTHS OLD AND ALREADY $22,000 IN DEBT
CAN WE BANKRUPT OUR COUNTRY? YES WE CAN!
FREE MARKETS NOT FREE LOADERS
 
 
Of course, the media took to the airways declaring that these tea parties were instigated by Republicans, which is certainly not the case.  People are just fed up with the way the government is running the country.  Protests were shut down in Washington, D.C.  I guess you can’t exercise your rights when it’s near the precious Obama.  Here are the lowlights…
 
 
It’s bad enough that we have to pay for our government’s pork projects, and I’m including Republicans here as well,  They have us all boarding a sinking tax ship.  When my husband and I can’t afford something, we go without it.  We forego the perks that most people spend extravagantly on.  For me, manicures and pedicures are not on my "must do" list.  I take care of it myself.  We don’t take vacations, even though we could certainly use one.  We bought a modest home that we could afford even though we would have wanted one with more and larger rooms.  It’s called necessary restraint.  We have opted to pay our mortgage, taxes and bills.  Why can’t the government show the same restraint?  Excessive spending will not get you out of debt.  That’s a no-brainer, but the government is showing that they’re a "do as I say, not as I do" government.  While we tighten our belts, they are loosening theirs.  Their chosen option is to print more money and raise taxes, and having us foot their bill.  That’s why people are outraged.  This country is full of hardworking, intelligent Americans, and all we want is for our government to rein in the purse strings like we all have to.  We could all teach the Obama administration a thing or two about economics as they seem to be clueless on this subject.  I don’t mind paying taxes for the helpless, but I do mind paying taxes for the clueless.  It’s a shame Washington isn’t listening to us.  They tend to have selective hearing.  And, Obama?  He has big ears, but he’s not listening…
