The Tea Party
I asked my parents to explain what the Tea Party was for, and all I got was 'small government'. Well, what the hell does that mean? "What are you going to cut," I asked. "All the pork," was the answer. I am now convinced that the Tea Party are a group of upset people blurting out slogans when prodded with intelligent questions.
The problem is that one person's pork is another person's justified government spending. I'd love to see how quickly some of these tea partiers stop whining about socialism and big government if anyone asked them to put their money where their big mouths are and send back their Social Security, Medicare, and/or Medicaid checks.
