Tea party rally upbraids 'gangster government'

Published: Thu, April 15, 2010 @ 4:23 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Tea party protesters marked tax day today with exhortations against "gangster government" and appeals from Republicans seeking their grass-roots clout in November elections, a prospect both tempting and troubling to those in the loose movement.

Several thousand rallied in Washington's Freedom Plaza in the shadow of the Ronald Reagan office building, capping a national protest tour launched in the dust of Nevada and finishing in the capital that inspires tea party discontent like no other place.

Allied activists demonstrated from Maine to Hawaii in smaller groups, all joined in disdain for government spending and - on the April 15 federal tax filing deadline — what they see as the Washington tax grab.

The rally in brilliant sunshine was spirited but modest in size, lacking the star power of tea party favorite Sarah Palin, who roused the masses at earlier stops of the Tea Party Express in its cross-country bus tour. Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota won roars of affirmation as she accused President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats of trying to take over health care, energy, financial services and other broad swaths of the economy.

No hope and birdbrain, do you two actually believe the tea baggers are against you? They're against government and the way government forgot who works for who. So,unless you two numbskulls have been elected to congress this is not the baggers versus you. And do really believe someday you're going to become part of the elite,ruling class? I'm so glad the playgrounds will soon be opening,get you two off the boards.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A record number of U.S. homes were lost to foreclosure in the first three months of this year, a sign banks are starting to wade through the backlog of troubled home loans at a faster pace, according to a new report.

RealtyTrac Inc. said today that the number of U.S. homes taken over by banks jumped 35 percent in the first quarter from a year ago. In addition, households facing foreclosure grew 16 percent in the same period and 7 percent from the last three months of 2009.

More homes were taken over by banks and scheduled for a foreclosure sale than in any quarter going back to at least January 2005, when RealtyTrac began reporting the data, the firm said.

"We're right now on pace to see more than 1 million bank repossessions this year," said Rick Sharga, a RealtyTrac senior vice president

Nohope, You keep making these charges and after at least one event you should have some proof. Did you video or audio any of these hate the black guy utterings? You went to six and you have no proof? You want us to believe you, why? You're nothing but a low life rabble rouser hoping to spread the lie enough where others will soon start spreading the lie with you. You're a disgrace.
