|Subject:||Final Update: Tea Party Guide for Wednesday|
I first heard this avenue of thought on Cavuto this past weekend, cannot recall who was spouting the drivel.
I tried to send Cavuto a pic of the Constitution asking him to please tell that guest I would cut anything not written in the Constitution and let States take back over programs THEY desire (with their taxes) instead of the Federal Gov't taking from one and giving to another.
If a program is SOOOOOOO important it needs to be funded, then damnit, put it to the Constitutional test, see if our useless congress-critters can get it in there..My bet is they can't!
But, it's also a good reason for a positive message instead of just anti-Obama stuff.
Excellent post; thanks!
Bakersfield Tea Parties:
12 noon and again at 4:30 - at the Courthouse at Truxtun and Chester.
Stealth in any operation is important. Hopefully, they are surprised when they are overrun by our grassroots efforts.
You know we are going to the Spokane, Washington one! We are taking a couple of friends and some very cool signs. I just heard one of the Spokane Tea Party organizers say that they now have one or two thousand people signed up for the event, which is up from 400 early last week. Not bad for our community. I hope to see a huge cross section of people represented like veterans, conservatives, survivalists, libertarians, etc. Anyone else coming to the Spokane Tea Party?
Notice the local honchos from the political machines are running for cover on this one. People are plain fed-up!
Come to Santa Maria at 5:30 pm in the (closed) Mervyn’s parking lot.
Come join us for dinner at the El Paraiso Mexican food after the rally. (West end of the same parking lot.)
...I’m bringing tea and coffee and 2nd amendment fire to Nicholasville, Cain-tuck. When we leave, the clowns in US Congress and the administration can have what is left from what we’ve finished brewing up...
My wife says she would like to go, but with her poor vision, she would be a liability. She is worried that this might be the kickoff of a Civil War.
Where’s Santelli? That said - is this great or what!!!
Hey, any FReepers from SE Washington State going to be at the Tea Party at John Dam Plaza in Richland, WA?
I LOOOOOOOOOVE THAT SIGN!!!! Kudos! :)
at least FOX News is promising to cover it
Beck just said today he would be there
This is as old as time immemorial, as long as man has had battle. This is bound up in the finer points of Sun-tze.
Figuratively speaking, Freepers and lurkers, they (or lurkers, maybe even YOU) fear the grassroots uprising, and it engulfing their position. They fear a rout. They fear because they know it is coming. They know that we are numerically superior. They know that the Obama election was just an illusion, very shallowed, without substance nor lasting meaning, put together with safety pins and a lot of hopes. They know they are lined up with an empty suit, and their opponents are motivated with deep, bedrock principles shared by our Founding Fathers that even a head on locomotive cannot stop nor slow down.
And that is what they fear. This CNN and MSM and their ilk. Their power is solidified only so far.
They skate on thin ice and they know it.
Ensconced in their ivory towers, they are afraid the peasants--en masse and with an attitude--are going to scale up and over their ramparts and storm right smack into their comfortable castles. "Into their faces", one would say in 2009.....
Life will become difficult. Many liberal sacred cows will be trampled asundered. This is indeed historic. It is AMERICAN as APPLE PIE. No amount of liberal ridicule or attacks can defuse it. The tipping point has long since passed. They talked about Obama's 100 days. Little did they think about THE ANGERED AMERICAN PEOPLE'S 100 DAYS...and how in that span of time we are NOT going to let them seize The Constitution, our Freedoms, our Guns, our Taxes, our Rights, Our Lives, Our Liberty and Our Pursuits of Happiness.
Happy April 15th everyone.
Senator Tom McClintock will be a speaker at the
Sacramento Tea Party. Here is the link to the
update he sent out:
I have no idea how to post it; It gives the California
list of Tea Parties. Thanks ! Walkenfree
First of all, I love the song Lloyd wrote (full disclosure: he's a friend of mine).
But, we at the Our Country Deserves Better Committee also promoted two other YouTube videos including "A Bailout Song" and Bryan Barton's "Tax and Spend" video to provide people with other means of musical accompaniment for their political messaging.
Surely one of those three ("American Tea Party Anthem", "A Bailout Song", or "Tax and Spend") you find to be worthy of a round of applause? Or are you not fond of any of the three?
I'll embellish on it a little though
Here isAlso here is part of an article which has the number of Teaparties across the country at more than 1600!
A Link to all the Known Teaparties in California
at this time.
Find one in your area and attend!
Tax Day party count nearing 2,000 U.S. citiesMainstream media may run, but they can't hide from protest tidal waveThursday, April 09, 2009Mainstream media may run, but they can't hide from protest tidal wave
While WND has been tracking 400 individual tea parties across the nation, the American Family Association has announced its count is nearing 1,600 for Tax Day alone.
The AFA, planned to coordinate 1,000 Taxed Enough Already, or TEA, parties to be held at 12 p.m. on April 15 in front of city halls across the nation.
But the group is pleasantly surprised as is stands to double that goal before Tax Day is here.
"Our goal was to have a TEA party in 1,500 cities. We are nearly 100 cities above our goal and still growing," said Donald E. Wildmon, AFA chairman.
The AFA sponsored TEA parties are in addition to hundreds of parties planned by other groups. Taxpayers are also organizing tea parties for Independence Day and various Saturdays so people with conflicting work schedules may attend.
Read the entire article, here.
Has everyone seen this report from obama’s homeland security? As soon as Missouri backed off the MIAC, here comes obama’s report to quiet any opposition.
Here tea parties are compared to weather underground and a new dangerous terrorist network.
Taxation without representation, what does that mean to you? Those trying to quiet tea parties effect are saying we have taxation with representation and it has nothing to do with what the original tea party was about.
If you read the article below it sounds a lot like today but this isn’t about tea. It is about the wealthy elite getting richer with our tax dollars with no end in sight.
Woodrow Wilson, 1916, said:
A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the Nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men... We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized worldno longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.
What say you?
First cut welfare, it is 5 years max now? Cut it to 2 years. During that time on welfare they must be in some sort of training, education or have the ability to gain employment and looking. I am not sure how to handle the under 18 rule. Children can stay on welfare until they are 18 while in the parents home. Disabled and veterans are exceptions to this rule.
All illegals must leave NOW. No longer can they go to school,get government aid or medical care until they become legal. If caught they pay by deportation and all funds and material objects, cars, etc confiscated to pay for their expenses.
No AID to dictator countries. Harboring Hamas? Until he is gone you get nothing.
Green energy is to be gradual and paid by the corporations who will benefit. Not the oil companies or taxpayers.
Congress can no longer be involved in any votes where they will gain monetarily. All property gained should be handed over and sold.
Stop taxpayers funded abortions here and any other countries.
Call in all money loaned to other countries. No Jubliee act of debt cancellation.
No longer bail out failed corporations.
Audit the federal reserve.
No more theft of social security and medicare.
States held accountable for their budgets or impeached.
Medical costs. Everyone has to have some skin in the game. Everyone pays for insurance decided by a means test for poverty and low income.
Democrats rebelling! Are they also in obama’s homeland security profiles of terrorists?

This is a good point you bring up. Obviously part of the reason the Tea Parties came into existence was that their was a failure of BOTH major political parties to reign in the out-of-control spending, federal bailouts, etc...
However, the one point I've tried to make to people is that when you see Republican leaders embracing the Tea Parties, celebrate the fact, don't denounce it.
It's important to get the Republican Party back to standing for lower taxes, less spending and a smaller federal government. There's ALOT of work to be done on this front, I concede, but it's always good to have people moving TOWARDS you than away from you.
We need to have ALL the "conservative" oriented political parties embracing the less spending, lower tax, smaller government mantra (Republican, Libertarian and Constitution/AIP).
Yes, this is a bit of a tricky situation. Some Republicans/conservatives were somewhat silent about the rampant spending and growth in government under Bush. Some did speak out. Most were probably like me and those I've worked with/associated with.
We DID speak out and oppose it - just as we did with amnesty - but we also "took what we could get" in terms of lower taxes and strong national defense.
I do concede the point though that some on the Left raise when they say there wasn't an organized pushback against Bush and congressional Republicans for domestic spending and growth in government. It did take place, the resistance was passive. And now the GOP is paying the price. I hope they learn their lesson. They really sullied their brand and set back the conservative movement and made it hard to have clarity in opposing big-spending, tax-increasing, socialistic policies of Obama/Pelosi/Reid now.
He is DEFINITELY a conservative Republican who has always stayed true to the principles of lower taxes, less spending and reducing the size of government.
If the Congress had been full of McClintock's during the last 8 years they would have kept Bush in check on domestic spending and stopping new government programs - which would have been good for Bush, the Republican Congress and the nation!
Thanks for posting the info on the DC Tea Party - I hope others see it and join you!!
He and Harry Reid are two people I know my group (Our Country Deserves Better) will be putting resources into the campaign to defeat them both.
Dodd should be ashamed for his role in the banking and financial crisis. Him and Barney Frank are among the most culpable (but we won't be able to knock off Barney Frank - but Dodd looks to be in BIG BIG trouble!)
I’m going to the Capitol in Raleigh tomorrow and bringing 3 people with me. These are 3 who have never even considered participating in something of this nature before now.
Those who are making light of how fed up regular Joe’s and Jill’s are are clueless.
The local Dems tried to block the Tea Party by not issuing a permit because of the "large number of people expected to attend."
The Tea Party participants (bless 'em) decided to go ahead anyway, permit or not.
So, the socialists decided to dig up the road instead, and warn people to avoid the Airport Rotary, the site of the Tea Party.
Here are the two articles from the Cape Cod Times today.
The Brownshirts are nervous.
'Tea Party' tax protest scheduled at Airport Rotary
April 14, 2009
HYANNIS A number of area residents and political activists will celebrate tax day tomorrow at the Airport Rotary with a "Tea Party" protest, in which participants wave signs and flags in opposition to state and federal tax increases and government spending.
The protest, part of a nationwide effort, is sponsored by Smart Girl Politics, Top Conservatives on Twitter and other online groups. It will take place from 4 to 6 p.m., and will be followed by a dinner and rally at the VFW Hall at 455 Route 28.
Rotary roadwork will cause traffic backups
April 14, 2009
HYANNIS The Airport Rotary, at the intersection of Route 132, Barnstable Road and Route 28, could experience some traffic delays throughout the day tomorrow as road crews tend to a water main beneath the road.
Drivers are encouraged to avoid the rotary throughout the day as the roadwork will force the closure of one lane of Route 132, likely causing backups, according to the Barnstable Growth Management Department.
The work should be completed by the end of the day if weather allows.
I wanted to bring my 7 year old grandson but have decided not to. If ACORN shows up, I don’t want him exposed to the vile profanity that ACORN is sure to spew. They’re rabid animals that are cornered so I’m sure they’ll act ugly just like they always do.
relevant = physicists, meterorologists, climatologists instead of mostly social workers with a BS after their names on the myriad globull warming consensus petitions.
The song by Loyd Marcus Jams. Good message and catchy tune. The Bailout song by RivoliRevue is a bit on the corny side and I can see the left using its dorky rhythm to ridicule the Te Party movement. Imho of course.
That and all Mass Rotaries are a nightmare.
How appropriate, most MA DPW's are full of former althetes turned stoners with bad knees, Most likely Obama Voters.
But the question is, is it Stimulus Money fixing the Road?
To bad airports have becomed so guarded, most pilots are conservative. If the airport mgr, had any b@!!$ perhaps he would lt them do it on his land, which abuts the Rotary if my memory is correct.....
We’re heading to our local one in Washington, PA tomorrow.
Looking forward to it!
I believe Rose from Quinn and Rose is speaking. Should be fun!
You're correct, the airport abuts the rotary. The airport is owned by the Town of Barnstable, so the commies have full control...
It's my understanding that the Tea Party is just going to be moved to the other side of the rotary, on Route 132...:-)
When they embrace it by their actions in congress, I'll celebrate. Until then they are playing the same old political game.
Ooorah! So glad you’re going, and wish I was going with you. However many people are there, it’s going to rock. I seem to remember reading on another, older thread at least a few people who said they were from Spokane and would be going. If I find it again, I’ll ping you.
I think last time I saw you was at a 2nd amendment rally 8-9 years ago, in Sacto.
“I wish he would have been upset about all this spending when Bush was president.”
Hannity spoke very harshly against many of Bush’s programs; he was not a cheerleader for Bush across the board.
“The enemedia is getting bitchy because FNCs ratings are going to go through the roof on Wednesday...”
FNC’s ratings are through the roof every day, all day long. MSM is pissed.

Awesome San Antonio Tea Party Video:
Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment
Paramount communications? This pac uses paramount communications, the same company that shot leftist trash like leonardo di caprio to fame?
Doesn’t seem right.
I remember that rally.
One of the leftists from a pro kill babies rally came over and spit on one of our speakers.
It was a lady whose kids were brutally attacked by a guy with a machete while they were frantically trying to get the lock box open so they could shoot the attacker.
The lock box protected the killer, not the victims.
I believe one of her children died in the attack, what a brave woman to tell her story.
Fantastic that you and your family are going tomorrow.
I plan to be at the DC rally. I will have an IPhone to take and send pictures. I am looking for a Freeper who can posted the pictures here. Would require a flickr or some such account. I could do it through my Flickr but it would take too long on the IPhone. Anyone interested? If so, freepmail me an email address I should send the photos to.
