Floridians Unite is looking down the road and planning an Orlando Tea Party for March 21.
"This will be a peaceful rally to unite our voices and express the love that we have for our great nation and the principles it was founded on," states the Floridians Unite website. "We want to make our politicians hear loud and clear that we are tired of the bailouts, the wasteful Washington spending and the push towards the socialization of this country! We want less government! We want to decide where our hard-earned money goes instead of the elitist politicians in Washington taking it and using it to buy votes, doling it out to special interest groups and pork barrel projects! We want our constitutional rights preserved and protected, not trampled on!"
At the Pennsylvania Tea Party on April 11, organizers are inviting people to help them reenact the Boston Tea Party of Dec. 16, 1773, by bringing one tea bag each to Point State Park in Pittsburgh with plans of actually tossing the tea into the Alleghany, Monongahela and Ohio rivers.
"Somebody in our government needs to finally pay attention," said Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck on his radio program last week. "It is what I've been talking about that was coming for a very long time, and that is disenfranchisement, which will turn into anger and then turn into God knows what."
CNBC analyst Rick Santelli is hoping those demonstrations will result in real change.
During the televised segment where Santelli revived the term "tea party," CNBC panelist Wilbur Ross, chairman and CEO of WL Ross & Co., interjected, "Rick, I congratulate you on your new incarnation as a revolutionary leader."
"Somebody needs one," Santelli responded. "I'll tell you what, if you read our Founding Fathers, people like Benjamin Franklin and Jefferson, what we're doing in this country now is making them roll over in their graves."
I understand Obamas “body man”, former Duke player Reggie Love, is going into hiding during this time.
Tea tossing is a very good idea. I’m sure the authorities in Pittsburgh have a law against tossing anything in the river, but if enough people do it, nobody will get prosecuted.
Which is also true of...other offenses! ;)
“doling it out to special interest groups and pork barrel projects”
How about being brave and complete and add “LOSERS WHO DO NOTHING BUT SIT ON A STOOP”? Sort of like that Santelli guy.
It’s about time we start attacking the dead-weight individual welfare queens.
Well, this sounds like just a whole lot of feel-goodism.
The colonists who organized the Boston Tea Party actually put their lives at great risk when they gathered.
And, they actually went out and wreaked damage buy throwing the entire cargo of precious tea into the harbor.
Nothing that will come of these current “tea parties” even comes close to the colonists’ brave act of civil disobedience.
>not that I know of anyway.<
Hope I am wrong.
If our Founding Fathers could see “what we're doing now in
this country”... they would bust a cap in some body’s ass!
It sends a message to the Obama thugs that we the people are going to be in the streets fighting the police state they are setting up. Today its tea in the rivers, tomorrow it may well be “Our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor” especially when the American People experience true hunger and are not much interested in federal bread lines and soup kitchens.
I plan to be there. I'll be the chunky, middle aged woman wearing the navy blue t-shirt with the stylized picture of the United States on it ... LOL.
Well, people may get arrested for littering en masse with the teabags. You know the liberal-ati are gonna hate this so they will probably try to find the smallest excuse to come down on these folks.
Friday. Sigh. Why not Saturday, then I could try to attend the one in L.A. There ain’t one up in my area, and I can’t take off all of Friday.
Yeah. Throw teabags, that’s really going to stop them.
I think Holder was right.
All revolutions start with a first step.
It is significant that people are thinking in terms of a revolutionary act.
I know. I’m right here across the river from the DC Tea Party - spitting distance. But I can’t get off work for it.
I definitely would have been there with husband and daugther, and 7 months pregnant myself, if it had been on a Saturday.
Great job, RightField! Any idea if the one in your area has any radio/other personalities that are organizing the event?
I agree, Saturday would have been better except I think the news media doesn’t get out of bed on Saturday or Sunday. Hopefully everyone will bring cameras and take up close (crowded looking) pictures and post them on line. The media that does show up will try to talk it down with sparse pictures of few people, but I don’t think they can ignore it with it happening all across the country. But now we have the web, picture and post!
You think that would fly if everyone wrote in big, black letters, "I O U" on their 1040 tax return?
The real tea party hit someone’s pocket book big time and was an act of civil disobedience and an illegal act.
Absolutely true. Even midday on Friday is taking a chance not to get noticed, but anything that happens Saturday gets ignored until the following Monday. And then it’s old. I’ve seen major disasters get only light coverage until the regulars come back to work on Monday.
Friday February 27th
Noon - 1PM
