I would like to help Daniel P. Poulin understand why state Sen. Conrad Appel, R-Metairie, might think that tea party people might be a little confused about what is really going on. The first signs I saw at a tea party rally was “Keep your government hands off of my Medicare.’’ If this is not the epitome of asinine, I don’t know what is. The next question I would have for Mr. Poulin is what are accurate facts. This might be the perfect definition of redundancy. I will say this much for him, we should all believe what a real estate executive has to say about education rather than a politician.
