    Have you noticed that the Oregonian has been putting up articles written by the New York Times attempting to associate the Tea Party Movement with the Sandpoint Idaho Skinhead Revolutionaries.

    The New York Times has turned into a bit of a spin doctor role and this attempt to marginalize the grass roots Tea Party movement is unbelievable. Makes me angry but I know that writing to the Oregonian or the New York Times is a total waste of time.

    Any suggestions? Should we all protest in front of the Oregonian building? Is their anyone home in that place anymore?

    I'm sure the 20 people that still read the Oregonian on a daily basis don't really give it that much credence anyways.

    I haven't read the Oregonian in years because of the biased way in which they present the news. I do occasionally buy a Sunday paper for the adds.

    To be fair, I understand that conservative and skin head values can overlap, which makes it easier to draw parallels between the two unrelated groups.

    =============================================

    I am not a tea party member or a skin head. I believe:( that they would be similar in that they both believe in smaller government, 2nd amendment rights, God, baseball, etc.

    Pretty much everything other then racial issues.

    Anyone please feel free to correct me if I am off the mark.

    What's the Oregonian?

    Who cares. It's like the nickle ads running anti edlebrock ads.

    The "Oregonian" doesn't even distribute itself beyond the Willamette Valley any more. They hardly represent any interest outside of the Portland Metro area.

    The Oregonian just laid off 35 people, they are the whimper of a dying sage rat. Sorry about the job losses though.

    I was referring to the above post, but since you asked, our Lib Prez, Lib House of reps, and our Lib Senate.

    Seems they all fit the bill of tax collectors, spenders, more so then as tax payers.

    Anymore tea parties scheduled locally coming up?
