I was on the MI PBS program "Off the Record" which was taped last Friday at MSU campus at 8am before the rally in Lansing at 9am. It was originally was to be about the 'Fake' Tea Party, but quickly branched out. It was supposed to take 15 minutes, but ate up the last half of the show. Two of the correspondents at the studio stayed for 20 minutes after the taping to ask more questions about the Tea Party.
The file is MP4; after it loads, you can move to the last half of the show if you… Continue

This became a web site where folks could submit ideas for consideration for inclusion in a final list of 10 things that the Tea Parties want done by Congress.
One of the items that received many votes (including mine) was the Fair Tax. It was in the top 10… Continue
