I'm willing to wager that 99% of the tea partiers fall into the 99% category. How many of them do you really think are in the top 1%? Social Security doesn't dole out that much.

As I stated in another thread,
If the Tea Party keeps moving further right and the Anarchists keep moving further left, sooner or later they will meet at the back door and then we'll be in really big trouble.

Show many any Tea Party event where hundreds of people were arrested for any reason, hell show me any Tea Party event where people had to be penned up to keep them under control. Show me any Tea Party event where the police had to mace people who were out of control.

On a side note, show me where anyone who attended a Tea Party event legally carrying a weapon hurt anyone, shot someone, did anything that you left wing nut jobs are scared of.

I'll just wait...

The useful idiots of both movements are the ones in these street protests getting arrested.

Which one has proven the less expensive to the overburdened taxpayers as far as keeping the peace, arrests, vandelism, and sanitation is concerned?
At least the tea party well be gone in a few years. They will save lots of money for the tax payer then since they will stop receiving that big disability check.

We've got hundreds of people in our local Tea Party group and the overwhelming majority are my age or a little younger, early to mid 30s. The idea that the Tea Party is made up of 70 and 80 year old people is just plain ignorant but completely expected. We'll be around a lot longer than the parasitic lefties who couldn't support themselves or their families to save their pathetic lives.
