Roger’s Rules

A nice cup of tea

Many excellent tea party rallies took place on Tax Day this year. I noted a few here.  But one of the very best talks, which took place in the picturesque town of Effingham, Illinois, has not been easily available until now. It’s by my friend Joseph Hartmann, a cardiologist outside Chicago. His catalogue of things he dislikes about contemporary America is a true patriot’s sustenance.  The worrisome thing about the Tea Party revolves around the question of staying power: can the thousands of people who joined together to resist Obama’s statist onslaught keep up their energy and commitment for the long haul?  No one knows the answer to that question yet. But Joe Hartmann’s eloquent philippic should keep the requisite pots boiling. Here it is—don’t miss the burqa banter toward the end.
