Lady from my way called up Rush yesterday. she was from Rehoboth Beach and mentioned the above tea party in Georgetown.
It's raining here but mostly the air is wet. I have camera and video recorder, have umbrella, have rolling thing, have portable radio to listen to Rush and I EVEN HAVE A CHAIR!!

Trying to contact all relatives and friends around the country.
Bring American flags. Thanks.
Gonna get in on this epic thread and say good luck to all those that are participating! I REALLY wish I could gte the time away from work to support my capitalist and libertarian / Constitutionalist, freedom loving, conservative brothers and sisters, but have to make the almighty buck while I still can.

Ping for later. Will be at our tea party this afternoon at 4:30 in Spokane, WA. It’s time to inform our government that “We Are The Country”, and we do have a say.
Go get ‘em bump!
I’m going to TN Tea Parties in Nashville and Franklin.
I am so fed up with a government that ignores its citizens and politicians who have no desire to fulfill their oath of office. When did ‘Of the people, by the people, and for the people’ become optional. I’m sick of politicians turned pharoahs. They are hellbent on implementing an agenda tried by socialists, facists, communists, marxists throughout history - AND IT FAILED EVERYTIME. This mindset is currently on display in Venezuela.
For all the ostrichs/media/liberals reading this, Obama has spent his life knowingly ingesting anti-American, anti-Liberty, anti-Free Market rhetoric. His agenda is an implementation of all that many have known (and tried) for years-destroy America from within. But the media refused to give the public the unbiased truth and let the chips fall where they may. You share the blame for the catastrophe and diviseness that the current occupant (remember that phrase?) is bringing upon this great country.
I am a proud American conservative and christian female member of the NRA. Proud to stand with those who embrace small government and understand economics (thanks Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams).
Oh yea, I guess this makes me another DHS-labeled right-wing extremist. So be it. DON’T TREAD ON ME!!!!!!
It is not til 5 this afternoon, and it is not our first TEA PARTY
AT LEAST 1,000 people at Peachtree City, GA Pre-Tea rally right now.
We’ll be headed to Atlanta this afternoon for a North Georgia FREEP and Atlanta Tea Party.
Kristin Taylor reports from Melbourne FL that there are already 800 people there, with others still streaming in.
Thirdwavedave reporting in from California on his way to Sac Tea party — on the train heading to the state Capitol where he will hook up with lloyd Marcus for a brief meet up. Dave says he’s going to try to interview Neal Cavuto while he’s there.
Reports as they come in.
Just left Downtown Boston [12:30PM]. TP was across the street from the state house. LOTS of people there [easily over a thousand at 12:30 p.m.].
No pictures, but I just got back from Lafayette Square in DC - a couple of thousand people, more arriving dressed in business clothes, probably on their lunch hour as was I. It’s pouring rain.
If you’re going to a later Tea Party, please consider making a sign reminding people of the 6 billion of our tax dollars going to ACORN, the left wing radicals.
For those who haven’t made signs yet.
Naples, Florida has quite the turnount on US 41 near the Vanderbilt Beach area...we just drove by. We are here on vacation and to house hunt. We are moving down here this summer because I was accepted into law school at Ave Maria. We’re pretty excited. When my husband saw the turnout for the tea party he said I like it even more here.
Went to a local one..down in Viera,Florida...about 250 people there between the time frame I was there 8 am til 11:00..it was scheduled to continue until 1 pm. VERY LOUD...people were staying about an hour or 90 mins and going into work late. Tons of signs. There are 5 local tea parties today...local press was there...a few news cameras.
Major Tea Party on Sunday the 19th at Wickham Park in Melbourne...they are expecting 3-4,000 there.
Just came back from TEA party in Farmingville, NY - the home to a very large illegal immigrant population that was documented in the movie “Farmingville”.
About 20 people there and many stopping by to sign up. Some VERY angry folks there (me included!)
Just got back from the Denver Tea party, at about 10:30 is was as big as the one they held in February, When walking back to work (someone’s got to work to pay taxes) North on the 16th street mall I saw quite of few people walking towards the capital with their signs and some even brought their children along as well.
When walking back I caught the eye of a guy with a sign that read “ATLAS will Shrug” I nodded at him and shrugged my shoulders, I think he got my simple acknowledgment of my support.
The RTD system is probably getting quite the workout today as it looked like rush hour at the light rail station and that was at 11:00.
If you are able to go and you are in Denver or if you work downtown Denver, take your lunch hour at the capital, just go and at the very least lend your warm body for support. We owe it to our futures.
