I guarantee to you folks that the kids that we see who are in the process of completely soiling the tenants of our Western Civilization are a products of the government run school systems, kindergarten thru grad school. What do we do?

The Lapeer County Tea Party Patriots Leadership, in response to a recent County Press editorial, makes the following statements. First, we categorically reject the notion that the comparison of the Tea Party Movement to the Occupy Wall Street Protestors is in any way significantly similar. The small number of protestors, the nature of the protest, the obvious organizational and financial support from specific radical groups, the lack of specific values and issues, the disregard for…Continue

So, the administration comes out and tells the world the US economy is no longer capable of leading economic recovery? Thanks for the honesty Tim Geitner; howevewr, that is your job. Or, under this administration, is it? Could it be any more obvious that their goal is to bring the economy down and to insure world redistribution of wealth. Is this not treasonous?
