    Would you like some tea???


    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

    02/28/2009


    ST. LOUIS — Critics of President Barack Obama's stimulus plan gathered beneath the Arch Friday to cheer speeches over a bullhorn and toss tea into the Mississippi River.

    A few conservative activists organized and promoted the rally, with help from talk-radio hosts. Pleased with the turnout in 35-degree bluster, leaders said they had stolen a page from liberal tradition by taking to the streets with homemade signs.

    "If I had known this many people would show up, I'd have charged admission," said Bill Hennessy of Ballwin, the lead organizer. "We'll do this every chance we get until Congress repeals the pork — or we retire them from public life."




    :D

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    'Tea Party' Protests Wasteful Spending

    POSTED: Friday, February 27, 2009
    UPDATED: 10:03 pm EST February 27, 2009

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In a protest harkening back to a milestone in American history, people at the Jacksonville Landing and in cities large and small across the nation turned out Friday to reenact the Boston tea party in protest to the latest stimulus package and the foreclosure assistance bill.

    The tax revolt, partly inspired by CNBC reporter Rick Santelli's rant earlier this week about President Barack Obama's housing rescue plan, resulted in a grassroots effort pushing "tea party" protests Friday in large cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Houston, and small towns like Tulsa, Iowa, and Calera, Ala.

    At noon at the Jacksonville Landing, Jim Fallon was among the first of what organizers said were 79 people who showed up to protest.

    Heard about it on my way to work. I wanted to go, but had too many proposals to finish and fires to put out. They said over a thousand folks were there. I wish they had it on the weekend, we would have been there.

    I don't have a driver's license and everyone I know was at work...I would have liked to have gone. Does that count?
