Are we having fun yet?

How do you cause thousands of New Yorkers to panic for no reason at all? If you're the White House Military Office you approve a photo op in which a 747 buzzes the Statue of Liberty while tailed by a fighter escort and when you inform the local authorities of what you're doing you tell them the mission is classified and they're not allowed to warn anyone ahead of time. For some odd reason this made people think the city was facing 9/11 Part 2 resulting in widespread panic with people deciding on their own to evacuate the area while flooding 911 with phone calls.

And the Democrats think President Bush was stupid?

Sugar Land TX Tax Day Tea Party

I attended the Sugar Land, TX Tax Day Tea Party yesterday. Here are some pictures I took. I should have found a better vantage point to show just how big the crowd was. I'm happy to say there were a lot more people than I was expecting.

It was held from 6-8 pm, allowing people to attend without having to take a day off from work. Unfortunately for my pictures the late time also meant lots of shadows from the surrounding buildings.

There were a lot of good signs, I wish I could have captured them all.

The crowd was huge. Made me wonder how big the rally in Houston must have been.

Tea Party Smackdown

I love it. One of the organizers of the Sacramento Tea Party smacked down the head of the California GOP for waffling on a massive tax hike. Maybe the politicians will finally get the message that this is a non-partisan issue.

What bias?

Here's a little clip from CNN's coverage of the Chicago Tea Party. Very unprofessional and clearly biased, the reporter asks a man a question and then cuts him off mid-answer so she can argue with him. Love how the person who posted the video tries to paint the reporter as a victim being harrassed by the protesters.

We're having a Tea Party

The Tax-man Cometh

With April 15th approaching I thought I'd post a little video from for those people who think the rich don't pay their fair share of taxes.

Thought For The Day

Why is it that some people feel that corporate executives have absolutely nothing to do with the success of a company but deserve 100% of the blame when that company fails and why is it that none of these people have ever run a successful company?
