TEA PARTY: Alternative available to liberals

In response to the tea party movement, I’ve been thinking maybe an organization of “Coffee Klatchers” that give praise and honor to our president and guardian would be the ticket. We are, after all, all citizens needing tending and direction.

Members could endorse all bills signed into law by the president and rally around the new health bill. Members could cheer the continued efforts of the president’s current war, enthusiastically laud the bailout of the banks and the money given to the automakers.

Members could promote the EPA in its thoughtful efforts to control every aspect of our environment. The earth should not be disturbed, nor the whales or fishes of the sea distressed, the air should be pure and never polluted and the mantle of our United States unscathed by man’s appetite and gluttony for earth’s bounty.

Members could advocate legal taxed marijuana for the gladness of all Americans. The Klatchers in essence will be the gracious Americans that a progressively changing nation requires for greatness.
