    Hi Everyone--my local tea party was going to be held at City Hall-. I was contacted today & they have had to move it to a large downtown park. Next Wednesday, April 15th is your opportunity to speak up. This is not a partisan issue. This is about republicans, democrats & independents who are fed up with wasteful government spending & bail-out after bail-out. It's about our government finally paying attention to US, the American taxpayers of this country.

    If you don't know where your tea party is, you can call your local chamber of commerce & they will let you know. The more of us that show up--means that we can't be ignored by our big spending government.

    I must admit this is the first protest I have ever been involved with! This is just way to important for you or I to ignore. Please make the effort & show up this coming Wednesday--April 15th at your local tea party.

    We need everyone there!

    A Wednesday protest, eh?

    Yep, that'll have a big crowd.

    :cuckoo:


    Why this year?

    Oh yeah, because a Democrat is president now so taxes are bad again.

    :lol:

    It could be a good cause but I wouldn't just hop on a bus because some stranger claims it is going to be a huge deal on tax day.

    The IRS will probably be there taking names anyway. :)

    Have fun marching in locked step.


    The Boston tea party took place because they were taxed yet were unrepresented.

    This little "teabag" party is about what now?


    You have representation.

    You lost the election.

    You do not have a majority.



    It just just has me amazed that dead soldiers who were lied into war that made us LESS safe was nothing to you worth protesting yet cleaning up the economic mess Bush (who lied them into war) is somehow protest worthy?

    Wow, some of you people simply don't know how to read. What a bunch of dolts. Bush, Obama, who cares what party. Neither one listens to us.

    They're too partisan to see the real problem thus explaining why we get screwed year after year.

    When the invitation includes the phrase:

    "...bring torches and pitchforks"

    count me in.

    Until then?

    Been there, did that with the Anti-Vietnam war protests

    Take you queue from the Black liberation movement.

    They bearly got doodlesquat done, then they burnt down a few cities, and suddenly American pols understood that something seriously needed to be done.
