It was a great parade. But why is it that no Republican politicians were pictured when they were there, marching right next to the Press' favorites? A message perhaps?

Tea Party idiots put a sour note on what otherwise was a joyful celebration of our great country.

Yeah, those banners with qutoes from that pesky outdated Constitution were really just awful.

On a serious note, here's to honoring all those who did what was "wrong", to do that which was right.

Below is a passage written by a fellow alumnus of mine. I hope you enjoy it, as much as I did.

" It's time for America to regain its Independence once again, from the destructive control and tyranny of corporations, the rich, and the greedy. America is Of, By and For the People, to do what's in the best interest of society as a whole, ...to uphold our Rights to Life, ...more

"There is no more surer, more subtler means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process (of inflating) engages all of the hidden forces of economics on the side of destruction and does it in a manner that not one man in a million can diagnose it" ~ John Maynard Keynes

Congratulations to the Tea Party 9-12 Project for winning the 1st Place Marching Unit Award at the Southampton July 4th Parade. A class unit with a great message. Seems to be messages from Dr. King and the Constitution of the United States are not political but uplifting and universally appreciated!

It would seem you may be indifferent, or ingorant to the level of disparity in our current society?

Maybe you should listen to Dennis Miller's rant on the "Fall of the Middle Class"...

As someone who works in a VERY basic service, I find your point of view not only willfully blind, and ignorant, but wholly out of touch...

You know as well as I do, it's not any one thing.

However, capital injection, and inflating the currency would top the list.

My father's quarter, is my nickel. Maybe less...

@HSA: "Evil" corporations? Well, when 29 men die, because profit was put ahead of safety in a mine, while lawyers quibble over fines, and compliance in appeals courts, yeah, that's evil. The list is nearly endless, pal...

Do you realize that Dennis Miller was on Saturday Night Live in the mid- 80s, was a stand-up comedian and now does some political radio show. Why would you or anyone else spend 2 seconds listening to his rant on anything. Opinions are like, well, you know the rest.
