Taxed Enough Already - All over the country

Tea parties going on all over the country today...people protesting against government bailouts and high taxes. Coverage going on at CNN, FoxNews and Twitter.

How do you feel about it? I think it's great -- lots of people are unhappy about the bailouts, but what are they supposed to do about it? Makes you feel like the government is out of our hands, and we should never feel that way. Now we'll see if protests make a bit of difference. That's the thing about protests -- they probably make the protesters feel better for an hour or two, but do they accomplish anything?

Hopefully the sentiment expressed at the rallies will translate into the voting booth. This crosses political boundaries. Our government is out of control and it's our responsibility to rein it in. I love the fact that the only place you really hear about these rallies is on blogs and alternative media. Main stream media is out of the loop, as usual.

Wait, CNN actually is covering it? Oh, of course it's on the politics page. Nowhere to be seen in the home page or the highlights for the politics page.
