I'm glad so many future right-wing militia members could get together. Will David Duke be able to make the next Tea Party?

"Easily the largest protest in all of human history "

Ha!!! What was your source? Fox News or Rush Limbaugh? Good luck with your tea bagging as the Republican party goes down in flames.

Hey, Ray, would you prefer to gather downtown with your compadre Bill Ayers? At least the 'right wing' folks protesting gov't. waste are not planting bombs and injuring innocent people.
I can tell you are tolerant and non-judgemental so why don't you organize some representatives from your side and present your counter-point-exactly what is wrong with protesting higher taxes or accountability in spending our money?

March for Women's Lives had at least 800000 participants:

The most optimistic estimates for the teabagging party had it at around 500000.

SteveP,

"At least the 'right wing' folks protesting gov't. waste are not planting bombs and injuring innocent people."

Oh really Steve? Ever heard of Timothy McVeigh? You might want to read up on the news.

"Poplawski's friends at the scene described him as a young man who thought the Obama administration would ban guns."

"An offense report filed against Cartwright the day he died outlines an angry husband who threatened his wife, kept guns and knives on hand, was "severely disturbed" that Barack Obama had been elected president, and believed the U.S. government was conspiring against him."

It would be better to put aside the right wing, left wing, liberal, conservative names and wake up and see the big picture and that is that we are in big trouble and it will not get better by living in the past. Bush did not do a good job and this guy (Obama) looks to be no better or maybe even worse. Economy is in the tank, we are evolving into socialism, 2 trillion in wealth lost in the last 3 months, Iran pushing ahead, North Korea ambitions, California bankrupt, Chinese hold 2.5 trillion US debt.

We need to consider how to remake ourselves and our country quickly and put aside name calling.
