Tea Party and Parkinson’s

From huffpost, “Tea Party protesters campaigning against health care reform berated and mocked a pro-reform advocate whose sign indicates he has Parkinson’s disease.”

They made comments such as, “If you’re looking for a handout, you’re in the wrong part of town … Nothing for free …” and, throwing a dollar in his face said, “Start a pot, I’ll pay for you. I’ll decide when to give you money.”

Yeah, sure sounds like a group I’d like to be involved with.
