Fear and loathing in St. Paul: A Minnesota protester puts his thoughts on poster board for a tea party tax day protest last April.

If you thought tea party politics were just for rabid wingnuts and certain Twitter-prone politicians, think again or else you may miss out on some hot stock market action before the November elections. Here, TheStreet has done some research to set shrewd investors on track to capitalize on the craziness, starting with—you guessed it—oil.  —KA

Investors should start to think of how this might affect their portfolio, especially with markets currently offering discounts on shares.

Drill, Baby, Drill.

I respect the right to free speech. I hate pictures and ways of expression like that depicted for this article. So, in light of right to free speech, what I hate is ignorant “white trash” with racist views expressing themself in public. It’s not called for or wanted, at least by me. I can’t stop it, but I can call it like I see it. Maybe that guy could move across the border to Canada, not that they would like him there either.
