Greenville Tea Party Update:
ACORN (if they show up) will have company. The Greenville County Democratic Party and Urban (sup dawg?) radio station WJMZ are holding a protest at the same time...at the same place as the Tea Party. The Democrats and Hip Hoppers are protesting Governor Mark Sanford's handling of South Carolina's share of the stimulus money. All under the guise of "Save our schools".
While Republicans protest government spending in front of the arena, Democrats will be protesting Gov. Mark Sanford’s stance on $700 million in economic stimulus money in the back.
A "Save our Schools" rally organized by the Greenville County Democratic Party and local radio station WJMZ is scheduled to start in the Bi-Lo Center parking lot at the same time as the Republican tea party.
60% of state taxes already go to education...but it is never enough. Every school in Greenville County has been rebuilt within the last few years at enormous costs to taxpayers...but it is never enough. Teachers make a good living (many working only 9 months a year) and, if they survive until retirement, receive a full pension and benefits all on the public tab until they die...but it is never enough.
And now, Democrats (are all teachers Democrats?) are hookin' up with the purveyors of Snoop Dog, Kanye and Akon (WJMZ) to jockey for position at the government teat.
What a contrast: Thousands gathering together to protest the waste and corruption of their government...and tens, or maybe hundreds, huddled together yapping for money that should never have been appropriated in the first place.
So in honor of the interesting collaboration of the Greenville County Democratic Party and "Gangsta" WJMZ, a right wing extremist version of Money.
