Â And if you don't want a meal even, be sure tos end all your money to Rev. Rick Warren, says he needs $1m by tomorrow!
The "Tea Party" crowd are finally starting to wake up to the fact that
the Republicans are the party of exploitation of the working class, and
exist for that purpose and that purpose only.
When a bunch of Tea Partiers found themselves in a fancy restaurant with
Republican Party officials spending an average of $266 each on fancy
