What did you think about the Tea Parties?
Shoppers were asked what they thought of the "Tax Day Tea Parties" on April 15, when people demonstrated against excess government spending such as the stimulus funds and bail-outs. Here's what they had to say:
It's time for people to stand up and speak their mind.
Lisa Kisinger, Palisade
The government already blew it with the bail-outs so they need to learn from their mistakes.
Ray Kisinger, Palisade
I think it's great because this country needs to wake up to what this administration is doing. I'm very upset that while the President was over in Europe, he bowed to the Muslim king and put down the nation he is suppose to leading.
Ron Fritz, McCook
I think the tax protests were great as people are upset about the taxes and what the government is doing right now with its money.
Roger Ely, McCook
People don't know where this all the money is coming from.
