Take a look. They are all pretty tame, yet labeled "outrageous" by the Huffpo. The worst are a couple misspellings. Oddly, no racist signs or klan members. Just everyday people voicing their disdain for big government.

Kind of makes me miss the Bush days when we saw truly outrageous and heinous signs.

The only one I find offensive is the one that says "go back to kenya"

The rest seem like regular signs held by regular people. It's nice to see so many people agree on something.

I'm trying to figure out which Obama taxes the Tea Baggers are referencing.

His proposed income tax increases, capital gains tax increase, medicare tax on capital gains, removal of HCE limit on SS and other deductions along with the taxes he raised to pay for healthcare, the massive marriage penalty.

Mainly those. Those are the real big ones.

Yeah, those are the ones that came to mind when I read it.

I agree, the "Go back to Kenya" sign was the only one that made me cringe a bit.

ha! that's awesome



When I was a freshman in HS, I paid no attention to the news or politics and in a psych class two girls and my psych teacher were talking about euthanasia. So, not knowing a damn thing, I say, "Who cares about the youth in Asia?" :oops:
