I was going to ask if you’ve seen all these small gatherings of American people popping up across the U.S. – but then realized how silly that question would sound. Of course you’ve heard of them!
I’ve bitten my tongue until now – but I can’t bite it anymore.
Some people are saying Tea Party is spelled A-m-e-r-i-c-a-n-P-e-o-p-l-e
Let me state for the record NO. ITS. NOT!
I am American and I see these tea parties as nothing more than political bitch fests that are organized by anti-social individuals who have nothing better to do with their time than have something to bitch about.
Tea Parties are to the Obama Administration what Cindy Sheehan was to the Bush Administration. That’s all.
The thing that gets me most is the people I see spreading vile hatred do so when they are not going to church or thumping their Bible.
Having been raised a Christian and having been witness to the amazing miracles and blessings of God many times over, I feel that I’m doing just what God wants me to.
I recognize hateful rumors being spread around the internet are lies – my Bible commands me not to lie.
The stories that are making their way around the internet and in small social groups encourage hatred – ill feeling, anxiety, and several other emotions and actions that go against everything my Bible teaches and commands.
How could that be right?
To this day, I’m gob smacked that I lost a friend over political differences. That I stepped up, asked that we agree to disagree, not discuss politics and my friend insisted on force feeding me her views and her opinions.
What is right about that?
For the record, I adore President Obama. I love to hear his speak. I adore Michelle Obama – I love the way she wraps her arms around children, no matter where they are from. I love the way our President and First Lady are hands on. They don’t hide from germs or the public – they get out and get in it.
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen or heard of a president who was so hands on – who was so in touch with the public.
I don’t like the fact that so much spending is going on – but I see that it’s one of those necessary evils we must endure IF we are to remain the country we all know and love. If spending doesn’t happen now, the American dollar will continue to fall into an abyss and I don’t think that’s anything any of us want.
People spoke poorly of Clinton when he was in office – but didn’t he bring our economy to a place of surplus? He may have made poor decisions when it came to his marriage – but by golly he was a good president and had our country on solid footing when he left.
Just know that when it comes to Tea Parties – they are a very small group of American’s and they do NOT speak for me! No way. No how!
