I feel The Sun and its readers need to know that the rally planned by former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. is sponsored by corporate special interests. Americans for Prosperity is a corporate funded "hit squad" whose purpose is to fund millions of dollars towards preserving profit margins for insurance companies and other corporate interests. They also run Patients United Now. Their agenda is to keep the status quo for corporations. They appeal to the ignorance and fears of the so-called tea baggers.

It's ironic that tea party Republicans want no part of a debate or vote on President Barack Obama's proposal to act against ISIS when in the past they've complained bitterly about Mr. Obama acting alone without consulting Congress ( "Congress expected to avoid vote on military action in Iraq, Syria," Sept. 9). In such a crisis the nation obviously is stronger and our efforts more effective when the Congress and the president work together. The tea party will criticize the president no matter what decision he makes, but they want no part in having their votes recorded.

On a sweltering day in 1904 a tea huckster, India Tea Commissioner Richard Blechynden, was having a hard time convincing visitors to the St. Louis World's Fair to sample his hot tea. So he put the tea in large bottles, flipped them upside down and let the tea flow through iced lead pipes. Iced tea, minus the lead pipes, has, according to the Tea Association of the United States of America, been a part of American summer ever since. Teavolve Address --1705 Eastern Ave. Phone --410-327-4832 Hours --10 a.m.-8 p.m. Tuesday- Sunday I picked a blended black tea, sweet orange and honey, from the impressive selection of loose teas.

Most people have never heard of it. Fewer still understand how it operates. But it is the focal point of a (mostly) intramural Republican fight playing out in the halls of Congress. Its ultimate resolution will have dramatic impact on a number of high profile American manufacturers - and the thousands of high profile jobs they represent. I refer to the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank of the United States. Its charter is to act as a lender/guarantor of last resort (where private sector investment is not available)

The outline of a proposal to drastically scale back the federal deficit unveiled Wednesday offers a real challenge to President Obama. The ambitious plan, which sends a whole herd of sacred cows to the slaughterhouse, is exactly the kind of thing he came to Washington promising to champion — a real solution to the nation's problems that have been perpetuated by partisan gamesmanship for years. This is something that can't be done without changing the culture of Washington. But the proposal is, just as significantly, a test for the tea party and its newly elected champions in Congress.

Columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s Sunday rant about the IRS' alleged targeting of conservative groups ( "Why no outrage over the IRS' tea party targeting?" June 29) raised a basic question in my mind: Why should tea party groups get tax exempt status? The tea party groups are clearly partisan Republican organizations, as reams of news copy dissecting "tea party vs. corporate GOP" primary battles make clear. Certainly some people drawn to these groups are disgusted with the general state of politics and its purveyors, such as Mr. Ehrlich.

It's one of those scenarios that would be hard to believe in a movie.  As John Waters embarked on the cross-country hitchhiking trip that is memorialized in his recently published book, "Carsick," a 20-year-old Tea Party-affiliated legislator from Frederick County offered him a ride.  And, to make it all the more cinematic, the Bible-thumping college student and the "Pope of Trash" hit it off.  " We don't see eye to eye on a lot of...

In Citizens United vs. FEC, the U.S. Supreme Court held in January 2012 that the federal government is prohibited from restricting independent political expenditures by businesses, associations and labor unions. The opinion allows such groups to spend unlimited sums of money on advocacy ads, but not direct contributions to candidate committees. It also set the American left off its rocker. What follows is a chronology of events that has set the American right off its rocker, too. The immediate aftermath of Citizens United saw a worried president engage in a series of hard hitting speeches concerning the corrupting influence of money in politics and warning about a proliferation of newly formed, conservative groups seeking to take advantage of their expanded free speech rights.

Los Angeles has Hollywood, two pro basketball teams and some of the country's best beaches. It's also the city with the third highest gross domestic product in the world. But leaders in the West Coast city say they're envious of the fiscal cuts Baltimore has made in recent years - and are hoping to replicate them.   Los Angeles Budget Director Matt Crawford traveled to Baltimore Wednesday to meet with city officials here. Crawford and his team met with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, city finance director Harry E. Black and budget chief Andrew Kleine to discuss Baltimore's approach to budgeting, the city's 10-year financial plan and the CitiStat system that tries to hold agencies accountable for their performance.

I'm sure the insurgent conservatives who call themselves the tea party, the folks who have rocked the Republican Partyand pushed the country's agenda to the right, are perfectly nice people. They are good to their grandkids and don't kick their dogs. And I think they genuinely care about their country. What I wonder about, though, is whether they really understand who it is that they are supporting. They claim to represent the interest of average Americans -- the upright, hard-working men and women who pay the taxes, rear the next generation and struggle to make ends meet.

While tea party candidates underperformed against establishment Republican incumbents in recent U.S. primary elections, in Europe their conservative cousins have just scored some spectacular victories. Commentators are calling elections for seats in the European Parliament and local council seats in Britain a "political earthquake" and "revolution" as strongly conservative candidates made significant gains. In Britain, the UK Independent Party (UKIP) outperformed the established Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat parties.

I have been plagued with nummular eczema for years. It does not respond to Benadryl, prednisone or any kind of topical cortisone ointment. I read in your column about some doctors in Japan who had people with eczema drink oolong tea to help their symptoms. So the last time I had an outbreak, I tried oolong tea, and the results were amazing. Within 24 hours, the itching and inflammation were gone. It took a couple of days, but the lesions disappeared and didn't leave scars. Why does oolong tea work so well?

Election year 2014 is the third time the Republican Party has hitched its wagon to the tea party. In 2010, angry tea partiers shouted down incumbents in town hall meetings, put Democrats into a defensive, crotch-covering crouch and delivered the House of Representatives to the GOP. In 2012, tea party zeal morphed into extreme stupidity and weirdness that freaked out moderate voters and wasted a Republican opportunity to win the Senate. Now, two years later, the tea party is both chastened and more entrenched.

The centrist shift of the Republican Party, first observed last fall with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's landslide re-election, continued this week with GOP establishment candidates defeating tea party challengers in primary races. The most visible was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's trouncing of a conservative opponent who was once running ahead of him in polls. Mr. McConnell is nobody's moderate, but he's no tea party absolutist either. What he represents — and what voters in Kentucky clearly endorsed — is an establishment Republican, the kind who believes in lower taxes and smaller government but not in shutting down the federal government or other forms of self-destructive behavior in the cause of extremism.
