    Apparently not. Some people want to spin a tragic incident, and that mentality is sad.

    EEK, that's not What I meant!!!

    I agreed with your post (very well worded) and meant to compound on it's message... regardless, I corrected my own post to be more clear, sorry for the mix-up...

    For a terrorist he seems pretty cool.

    The term "tea-bagging" is a sexual act, and a very disgusting one (I do hope you know what it is). It is an image I do not want in my head, and I am INTP, so my Ti/Ne will imagine it if I hear the term, that much I can't quite control. Taking pleasure in it's usage, immature...

    He'd be more likely to fit the latter definition. Right wing media has been pounding out anti-tax anti-government rhetoric this past year.
    There are many groups who are quite against the IRS. However, as I previously said, its the Federal Reserve who are in the cross hairs right now, not the IRS. And these groups are actually quite separate. For instance, one of NJ Campaign 4 Liberty's county chapters was discussing how to open channels of communication and work with the Tea Party coalition. C4L and TPC agree on most issues, especially the core issue of End the Fed, but they are not one.

    And as many others previously stated, myself included, Tea Party does not have a monopoly on anti-IRS sentiment. Anti-IRS sentiment predates the Tea Parties by several decades...

    It is also becoming more and more transparent as the spin attempts become more and more audacious.

    I come back over a week after this happens to discover AJ still cannot comprehend the letter.

    Agreed, but there is also the larger logical fallacy hiding in the background; namely, that if this man was indeed a tea partier, that that would mean every tea partier was like this man, which is of course an argument that holds no water...

    It was a lame attempt at a combination spin/smear tactic that was inelegant, to say the least.

    Or if you are referring to Tea Party types, all I can say is, if we're the teabaggers, you're the kneelers. Don't talk with your mouths full... it tickles.
