Old-fashioned tea party

April 10, 2009 - Frank Robinson
I can't believe I'm writing about a tea party, but here goes:

Apparently there are several tea parties planned for the week including April 15, the dreaded income tax deadline. I did a little digging and found there is a group formed in the state just to help organize the tea parties across the state. There are several.

It appears these people are fed up and angry enough to protest that their retirement accounts have lost money and a host of other issues have them fed up. Here is what I got from the Ohio Web site:

"Today, we great grandchildren of the original Sons of Liberty find our country in a most precarious and dire situation. Within the last year, we have watched our retirement and investment funds lose their value by half. We continue to see the value of our homes depreciate while being asked to pay for the mortgages of people who made irresponsible decisions. As this has occurred, our government, occupied by irresponsible politicians, has passed legislation that binds our children with enormous debt for the purpose of meaningless spending and massive expansion of government. They have chosen to throw endless amounts of our money at inefficient companies and banks while raising taxes on small businesses. It is a most shameful and unacceptable outcome."

This seems a little "out there," but I guess anyone can protest just about anything. That's what makes this country so great. I just hope it is a peaceful protest.
