    The Tea Party movement is supposed to be all about keeping the government out of your business. But if some California members get their way, the state will force public schoolchildren to sing Christmas carols.

    It's called the "Freedom to Present Christmas Music in Public School Classrooms or Assemblies" initiative.

    Merry Hyatt, a substitute teacher and member of the Redding Tea Party Patriots, is behind the push. The Record Searchlight reports:

    The initiative would require schools to provide children the opportunity to listen to or perform Christmas carols, and would subject the schools to litigation if the rule isn't followed.

    Schools currently are allowed to offer Christmas music as long as it is used for academic purposes rather than devotional purposes and isn't used to promote a particular religious belief, according to an analysis by the California Legislative Analyst's Office.

    Parents are allowed to have their students opt out of the caroling if they express that desire in advance.

    "We were having Christmas without Jesus," Hyatt complained of her previous school district.

    The initiative has the support of the local Tea Party Patriots president.

    "Bottom line is Christmas is about Christmas," said Erin Ryan, president of the Redding Tea Party Patriots. "That's why we have it. It's not about winter solstice or Kwanzaa. It's like, 'Wow you guys, it's called Christmas for a reason.' "

    So much for limited government?
  2. What's funny is that the republicans are in a Civil War. And most of them don't even realize it yet.

    It's actually very funny to watch.
  3. As much as I despise teabaggers and their non-value system, I have began to give money to their candidates.

    I want to see the current republican party governed by hypocrites, crooks and illiterate pedophiles utterly destroyed with no way to ever come back. The only way to destroy this serpent is to poison it from the inside.

  7. Compared to the democrats who have the Whitehouse, the House, and a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, but they still can't get anything done. That does not sound like a party with its act together. Just wait until the Clintons lead a revolt Obama. You know they are just waiting for the perfect moment to stab him in the back. It is going to be fun to watch.
  8. If you want to see some real lunatics watch some of the videos on protestwarrior.com.

    They make Harry Reid and Dennis Kucinich seem resonable.


    There is another where they infiltrate ANSWER. That one is frightening.
