Tea Parties Are Making A Big Splash On The Internet! matter how great or never something to scorn, but rather to praise. For the first time in many of these American lives they are not apathetically sidelined...There is too much at stake! The unifying phrase "WE THE PEOPLE" is holding new meaning for AMERICANS who watched irresponsibility become commonplace from their supposed representatives in Washington and on Wall Street. No longer are they going to let micromanagement of activities be a one-way street. After the Pearl Harbor attack (December 7, 1941) Admiral Yamamoto gave a quote which I feel is worth "recycling" for the Tea Party effort: I fear we have awakened a sleeping giant, and filled him with a terrible resolve.-- Yamamoto. Tea parties have sparked an online insurgency, with independent media sites driving coverage of the protests, suggesting that conservatives may be catching up with their liberal counterparts in building a Web-driven, grassroots campaign to push their agenda.--Judson Berger, Leslie Marshall (syndicated radio host) insisted the mainstream media coverage wasn't there because of its insignificance. "It's not sexy. It doesn't bleed," she told FOX News. She even suggested that protesters were operating under an American Revolutionary disservice scenario using the "Tea Party" title. Whether or not anyone feels drawn or repelled by the appropriateness of the title is of no consequence. What is of the utmost relevance is the placement of their activities on a parallel course of thought with the Boston Tea Party. Taxes and representation of both periods in history, present and past, reeked of injustice. Think of this movement as a restructuring of the pillars of society...especially since the ones we have currently sit as crumbling monuments to failure. We need to remind Washington that "High Tea" is best served with humble pie.

Note: When a government is wrong they need to take their lumps like everyone else.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
