Tax Day: Throwing A Tea Party (UPDATED)

I'm not sure if the Tax Day Tea Partyists are the "right wing radicals" Homeland Security referred to in its spurious report or not, but either way, I support this movement wholeheartedly.

There isn't a whole lot we can do (until the next election) to let the morons in government know that we will not tolerate increased spending and higher taxes--this is one.

Celebrate a great American tradition and chuck some tea tax in the ocean.
