Tea Party Participants Show Signs of Confusion
Some Signs Seen as the Extremist Right Wing "Tea Party" (TEA = Taxed Enough Already) participants descended on the intersection of Stevens Creek and Winchester in San Jose on July 5.
Top Photo: "Tea-baggers" seem to like the humorous moniker given to them by the very people that oppose them. The tea party participant here has tea bags hanging from his sign.
Union members, *Health Care for All* Activists, San Jose Peace and Justice Center members, WILPF members, Raging Grannies, and other Single Payer Health Care Plan supporters faced off with right wingers who could use a lesson in American Government.

Obama on a dollar bill
Health Care? Yes!
Insurance Companies? No

...San Jose's mounted police decided the crowd of several hundred might need closer "monitoring".
...that the Tea Party go-ers think that only their OWN views are patriotic. They wave their flags beyond. (Real patriots are concerned for more than their own wallets)
Green Party members
Just some of the groups that support Single Payer and sent members to counter protest against the Tea Party were: Santa Clara County Single Payer Healthcare Coalition, Raging Grannies Action League, South Bay Mobilization, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, One Voice!, Californians for Justice, San Jose Labor Party, San Jose WILPF(Womens International League for Peace and Freedom), and the San Jose Peace and Justice Center.
