I have a voter registration that says repub on it. Henceforth I will not vote for anyone that does not swear to vote with the TEA PARTY, And be for TERM LIMITS. No way could I be worse off than to vote for a generic republican.

Pick the lesser of two evils,or you'll end up with the worst.

As soon as the Tea Party gets a structure that is adequate to the task, I will consider it. However, when liberal democrats can claim the "tea party" label and run, as happened in New York, the Tea Party is just muddying the water.

Of course, as soon as that happens, there will be people making a living off the brand, as happnened with the Republicans.

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.   

But...

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
