No Tea For Me

And while we're on the subject of of time wasters, if you're thinking about inviting me to one of those political "tea parties" that are once again all the rage, save your postage.

True, I'm as anti-tax and anti-government as they come. And yes, the tea parties (and the numerous variations) can be a lot of fun, and they give folks a chance to blow off a little steam. Nothing wrong with any of that.

But seriously...do you really think they serve any practical purpose, other than to provide a platform for grandstanding politicans and self-important talk show hosts? Puh-lease. Get over yourselves, guys.

Sorry - the fix is in, folks - and your media-friendly diversions are not changing anything. Just keep things in perspective, that's all I'm saying.

Though if they're handing out free beer, or even reasonably cheap beer, I reserve the right to change my mind on the subject...
