tea22So if you didn’t hear yesterday there were a bunch of “Tea Parties” held across the United States in all 50 states. Why do you ask? Simple. People are protesting the spending going on under the new Obama administration and his American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This is the “stimulus package” you hear about so often in the news.

I used to follow politics quite closely but I got out of it recently. A co-worker of mine attended the Tea Party in Des Moines, Iowa yesterday. I’m trying to get him to guest post on here about his experience and the whole movement in general. We’ll see if he’ll do it or not.

People are sick and tired of their hard earned money being thrown around and others benefitboston_tea_party_1_lging from other’s hard work. I’ll be honest. I didn’t vote for Obama. I voted of McCain. I just couldn’t do it (vote for Obama that is). It’s not because he’s black. It was his ideas and plans that I didn’t agree with.

I don’t like the fact he feels that you should take someone’s hard work and let others who have done squat benefit from it. Share the wealth he always said. BAH! I work hard for my money and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let someone else, who was lazy, unemployed, etc. ┬ábenefit from my hard work. I’m not saying I’m against welfare or unemployment benefits trust me. I relied on unemployment when I was out of work for almost 2 years. What I’m against is getting something for nothing. Make sense? What do you all think? Do you all agree with how Obama is running the show right now? You like that we’re spending more and more money on bailouts? At least when Bush did his economic stimulus we all got some money in our pockets. Nothing Obama has put through has given me a nice check yet. Sure the tax withholding changed but that’s just gonna hurt us in the end by getting less back at tax return time next year. Where’s the benefit? Ok so I get a few extra bucks now on my paycheck. Big deal.

So I guess the Tea Parties yesterday were done to show the US government that people are tired of their money being thrown around. I’m right there with you all. In spirit at least.
