Participants at a Tea Party rally at CommunityAmerica ballpark in Wyandotte County share their opinions with the hundreds of people at the event. The rally on Thursday was sponsored by the Kansas City-area group Political Chips and allowed participants to show their frustrations with the federal government’s finances and their support for lowering taxes.

I haven't seen this many angry white people since Friends was canceled.

mrw, one thing you are missing is the fact that the people you see in that photo holding those signs actually are paying lower taxes than under Bush, and certainly under Reagan.

Isn't it sad that a group formed to protest taxes don't know that their taxes are lower under Obama?

Even if you are not of the 'tea party' persuasion (which I am not) it's kinda hard to argue with either one of those two signs. We are taxed at every single turn in life, and yeah...it would be nice if Washingtons laws applied to the law makers themselves and not just us commoners!

I hear the tea party moves to Ottawa today....

"One word: november"

And what? America suffers the wrath of the Teabagger 1/10 of 1 percent? Please!

These loons are the right wing base: disaffected misfits, John Birchers, Klan sympathizers, unhinged cranks. They vote every election and haven't voted anything but republican for generations. Perhaps a few more than normal will be motivated to get up off the couch to vote, but by and large, their votes are not moving from the Democratic to republican side of the ledger.

Their antics, however, are nauseating plenty of the more moderate and mainstream voters who are, in fact, up for grabs. These voters will be loath to be associated in any way with the ignorant and borderline racist behavior of the baggers, and will therefore either turn out in lower numbers than usual, or swing their support to the Democratic Party. Either scenario favors those of us to the left of center.

Yep, fat, selfish, ignorant tools of right wing political operatives and their corporate masters. It must suck to be each and every one of them. Scared, mad, unequipped to figure out why and unable to figure out what to do other than open their mouths and shout.

They simply look like a bunch of losers that do not want to do their part to make things better.

Never trust couples who wear matching clothing.

I hope the concession stands were open. They would have made a killing.

Damn Bea. yes, thats a lot of white people. Protesting about taxes in the house that tax built. Is that irony or what? Probably drove on a public street to get there. Hope they didn't smoke any cigarettes made from government supported tabacco subsidies on the way over. Hope they didn't eat in food grown by government subsidized farms/;price supports either. Hey Scott..they know how to read, most of them learned to read in Public schools...Those tax and spend socialist.....should be ashamed....partying in that government funded ballpark.

And doesn't the estate tax only apply on inheritances of 2 million or more? Don't most rich people have accountants to make sure that money is out of their estate before then?
