San Jose's Tea Party

San Jose had a Tea Party rally yesterday. There were many interesting signs from adherents and opponents. One teenager carried a sign stating, "Future Tax Slave." Someone else carried a sign proclaiming that "a village in Kenya is missing an idiot." Another interesting one-liner: "Save trees--stop printing money."

Meanwhile, Tea Party opponents mocked all the sign-carrying with (what else?) their own signs: "THIS IS A SIGN"; "THREE LETTER SIGN"; and "Don't Spread on Me," with a picture of a sliced bagel.

I did not see anyone carrying any guns. Everyone I noticed was polite, and many people were arguing respectfully with each other.

The save tree's sign is kind of funny though I wonder if that person knows that money is made of cotton.
