I wish there were a tea party planned in my area. I would be there.

Here's another protest on the Left Coast:
California Tea Party
And check out:
Total Recall 2009 - It's time to say It’s Time to Say Hasta La Vista, Arnold!
This is in response to the massive tax increases California just approved for the middle class and working poor. The biggest increase in the history of the nation by any state at any time.
And there's more revolt coming...(all peaceful, mind you.)

Don't worry! Your fat cat Repub friends can all afford all those new taxes!

P.S. the "biggest increase" happens to the state with the "biggest economy"!

Tea parties are for girls...I say we protest in front of Churches, attack Church goers and the elders, get a hold of cross and stomp on it. Ohh wait, that was a flash back from those peace, loving and tolerant Liberals. Mah bad.

What are you talking about? Fat Cat Republican friends?
Please elaborate.
Do you have a car? DMV fees will double come April. Like that? Are you rich?
Like to buy things in the store? Sales taxes will go up. Fun for the whole population, wouldn't you say?
Have a job? Earn income? Personal income taxes will now be among the highest in the nation.
Fat Cat Repubs?

Of course there's "more revolt coming." And the rest of the nation will stand back and marvel at the idiocy of it all. The idiocy of that neo-con base, taking to the streets to follow, predictably, a stockbroker-turned-"journalist." Meanwhile, the true conservatives will finally just say the hell with it and start a new Conservative party, and leave the Republican party to the looney-tunes and their new guru, Rick Santelli.

California was betrayed by the Republicans and the Democrats. The people will now suffer. The very ones that are losing their jobs, homes, cars. Now the state has laid on a whole new flurry of taxes to feed the maw of big government. My pickup truck costs $450/year to register. That means I pay $450 (it does decrease slightly every year) every year for that little colored sticker that has the last 2 digits of the year on it, thus verifying that I paid my fair share to be able to use our blessed freeways. Next year it will be $800. In total, I will have an extra thousand dollars in registration fees for my vehicles (those that I choose to keep). I can afford it, but how can you justify doing this to the working poor and those struggling to stay afloat in this terrible economy?
I thought liberals were for the working people...
Rick Santelli?

DMV fees are set by the state, not the federal government.

Sales taxes are set by the state, not the federal government.

Your taxes won't be affected at all. Unless you earn over $200,000 per year (if you're single) or $250,000 (if you're married). Which I assume is not the case, since people in that salary range would not take to the streets over DMV fees and sales taxes.
