There are more misguided tea party protests today, with demonstrators blaming the victims of the economic turmoil, as if working families that have been suffering from diminishing wages for years caused the crisis. Their agenda is summed up in the following sign seen at one of this week’s tea party events:
Free markets!! Not free loaders?!? What kind of weird reality are they getting this slogan from? There just aren’t enough people living upon income from government programs that they haven’t paid into to explain the scope of the economic troubles our nation is experiencing right now.
I challenge anyone who has taken part in one of these tea party protests to give the name of someone that they actually know who is living as a freeloader on government assistance. Don’t give me that urban legend garbage about having an uncle who has a friend who says they know someone. Give me the name of someone you actually know who’s one of these supposedly legion freeloaders causing the recession.
