Letter to the editor: Fear-mongering, demonizing tea party movement unfair
Making a blanket statement that all people who go to tea party rallies are racist is ignorant. That's like me saying all liberals are card-carrying socialists who just want to take from the rich and give to themselves because they believe they are entitled to it. Are there a few...

Letter to the editor: Tea parties provide place for hatred, racism to grow
In Daniel Rugroden's letter, "Accusing tea party of racism reveals critics' desperation," he claims that the tea party is not racist or hateful, and says "The truth about tea parties can only be revealed by someone who has been there." Sure, and the only person we can believe when...
