The original tea party was more like today's OWS. They vandalized property and ruined products to make their point about tyranny.

11/12/11 10:38 am

Not that either of them ever have any trouble with it themselves. :P

I'm not a republican, but I still think those who are can have very valid points and aren't just babbling idiots. Just as I hope most see dems. The Tea Party is just a bunch of religious nut jobs. They don't just give republicans a bad name, they give America and Christianity a bad name.

Ken, the original tea party wasn't just about tax - but taxation without representation in England. Today's Tea Party has nothing to do with the original regardless on how they try to tie the two together.

the percents for liberals and conservatives were consistent with their ideology but I was surprised the independents were so conservative.

taxes are lowest they have been in decades. the lower the taxes have gone, the higher the unemployment has gone.

11/12/11 4:24 am

libs. it's not 90 degrees though. it's 65. your analogy makes no sense because it's not rooted in fact.

11/12/11 4:06 am

Didn't Obama just barely draw back a planned Christmas Tree tax?

That's what being 'Taxed Enough Already' is all about. Stupid sh*t like that.

11/12/11 4:04 am

fairness: if I said, 'gee, today it's 90 degrees outside... That's much cooler than its been in the past month' wouldn't it still pretty hot?

Tax rates will be lowered when we take over in 2013.

Fairness back then everybody pay there fair share now the upper 50% support the lower 50 %. Who barely pay any tax

Fairness what is a fair tax rate. When the upper 53% pay 97% of the tax to the government now and the lower 47% only pay 3% . Look it up on the IRS Web sight if you don't believe me

Fairness the first tea party was about tax . The king of England to raise money was going to put a tax on tea. It was about tax back there

Mexico has lower tax rates too, and few benefits, safety nets, or services. sounds like paradise for baggers.

no, don't send it. then, move to Somalia where you won't have to pay a single cent in taxes.

11/12/11 12:00 am

I'm convinced! Does anyone have the address where to send all the extra money I have to the IRS?

11/11/11 11:55 pm

Fairness it is about being Taxed Enough Already. Fiscal responsibility. Personal responsibility. The government should perhaps provide a safety net not a freaking hammock!

I want OT know where else you can live with these tax rates and have this standard of living. any suggestions? no. didn't think so.

It was about taxation without representation. Every teabagger in America has representation in our government.

The very name chosen doesn't align with history or current times, and not a single one of them realize it...sad

Here is the problem with the tea party
1. Taxed Enough Already. How? Tax rates are the lowest they have been in 60 years. America flourished during the with much higher taxes since then.
2. The tea party derives it's name from the Boston tea party also. This event was not about being taxed...

11/11/11 11:22 pm

Jessie you must be talking about the occupy protesters don't confuse them with the tea party

11/11/11 11:18 pm

@Coke no it is not. you have to be a moron to not see how stupidly biased Fox news. other news stations might have some (insignificant) amount of bias, but nothing compared to Fox

I dont know whats worst: Faux news or the brain dead sheeple who comment on their articles. You know its fox news when under the SCIENCE section you find "11/11/11: Tied to a Mayan Apocolypse?"

11/11/11 10:56 pm

Tea party democrats??

11/11/11 9:59 pm

Jessie! Ugh! You democrats bash on fox news all the time but MSNBC is just as biased!!!

11/11/11 8:42 pm

money that business has borrowed. The money business borrows is totally a different animal.

11/11/11 8:40 pm

32no: you keep saying that 10 trillion is held by the public, you realize that if the holders of that debt bought T-Bills just like China, England etc. it's still money the ov has borrowed to pay its bills. it's not

11/11/11 8:06 pm

Jess, you need to get your news from other than MSNBC

11/11/11 8:05 pm

Jess, there has not been in violence nor arrests at any TEA party rallies. OWS, over 3000. The facts are the facts

Causing disruptions and fights at town hall meetings about healthcare. Attacking people that disagree with them (YouTube it). And getting support from the White Supremacists at

No, my beliefs are not like theirs. Not even close.

11/11/11 8:03 pm

Oh and OWS is getting funded from the unions? Please. Do your research before embarrassing your self

Carrying assault rifles, calling for succession and "2nd Amendment remedies". Carrying racist signs and throwing bricks through the campaign offices of Democrats.....

11/11/11 7:18 pm

hahahaa movement? it's all just money from so rich coke brothers

11/11/11 6:27 pm

Maybe Zappa should return to the grave. Lol

11/11/11 6:25 pm

Maybe the tea party should stage an "occupy" and show them how its done by keeping the area clean, not causing any crime or violence. Then the country can see the truth. Although Pelosi will say they are scary.

32no. If there weren't so many regulations and high taxes I'm sure business would be more inclined to stay here.

11/11/11 3:37 pm

But when the rich deflate the GDP by hiring outside america, the small businesses cannot breathe. That is why the economy is so bad. 10 trillion of the debt is held by the public, and it is definitely not small business with the debts.

11/11/11 3:35 pm

Are Americans. Small business usually makes a lot of money because Americans spend on it, and so do tourists, and then you have an economy.

11/11/11 3:33 pm

Unforgivvn, more than half the apple employees are employed outside America, Walmarts employees 1.6 million of them are employed outside America. The rich drain money by hiring in other places. Small business is more important, and more valuable, because 100% of their employees, no matter what,

11/11/11 3:26 pm

So X, you would rather support the OWS anarchy?

11/11/11 2:43 pm

I want nothing to do with the Koch brothers Teabagger movement.

11/11/11 1:13 pm

RJ- the economy is not a zero sum game. We can create wealth, without taking wealth from others, by developing something other people want and can afford, and by employing people who would not otherwise have a job.
Look at the standard of living from the 1900's to now- we are all better off.
