Now, I understand that if you're a big fan of the current President, you're going to have an aversion to the tea-party tax protests that went on the other day.
But, the sheer incredulity I heard from several "journalists" yesterday who couldn't understand why people other than those in the very highest tax brackets would care about a tax hike that didn't directly affect them...infuriated me.
By that logic, a white person fighting against slavery would make no sense, either.
You stand up for something because it's wrong. Not just because you'll get something out of it.
