Tea Party's Taking Shape

"Critics of President Barack Obama's stimulus plan gathered beneath the Arch Friday to cheer speeches over a bullhorn and toss tea into the Mississippi River...leaders said they had stolen a page from liberal tradition by taking to the streets with homemade the idea after Rick Santelli, a CNBC market commentator in Chicago, last week called for a tea party to protest Obama's anti-recession plan. Santelli's comments became a YouTube hit, and similar "tea parties" were planned in other cities." [link]

Don't you just love freedom of speech. I wonder how long it will be before we start seeing someone start trying to enact legislation to make this type of protest illegal or highly regulated, not counting the so called "Fairness Doctrine". Also gotta love the way freedom lovers are starting to use tactics used by liberosociofascist for years against them.
