  3. What's in that tea anyway?

    This mess is ridiculous.....I don't get why Tea Baggers want to run for the WH or even be in congress if their only desire is to shut it down. But then again only the vapid agree with the knuckle draggers, but hey as long as there is failure in our educational system, racism and hatred, then the Tea Baggers will always have a following.

    "In a letter posted on the Starbucks (SBUX, Fortune 500) website, CEO Howard Schultz said Americans "have no platform with which to voice their frustration with Washington and the current stalemate that threatens our nation."

    Well, for sure I won't be going to Starbucks to voice my political concerns.

    I vote. On Election Day.
