Lots of action across the USA today as law-abiding, frustrated Americans take to the streets to protest the mounting debt on our backs by the Obama Administration and US Congress.
Here are some more details on the San Francisco Tea Party today:
Civic Center (Plaza) Park. Corner of McAllister and Polk.
From there, we walk to 450 Golden Gate (one block) to Pelosi’s office.11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Come for the entire time or part of it; we will be in either of the two locations.
BE PREPARED TO:
–cheer and chant a lot!
–sign the Grievance Scroll (a draft of which is attached)
–register so that I have your name and email for next time (there will be a next time)
WHAT TO BRING:
1â€”pin a teabag to your lapel, jacket.
2â€”bring extra tea to give to Princess Pelosi, more symbolic than anything at this point as she will be at the Mark Hopkins for her book signing.
3â€”signsâ€”keep them appropriate.Â Stay on message (bailouts, stimulus, budget, taxes, pork, earmarks).Â Please refrain from signs that will take us off message and give fuel to the left wing press and left wingers who might show up.
4â€”cameras and videos cameras: for posterity and security.
5â€”period outfits, FLAGS!Â We will say the Pledge to start this off and we’ll need flags for that as well as patriotism in general.
6â€”if you have a boombox and have extra hands for it, download some music (appropriate please) and bring it along.Â I’m trying to work something out w/ this.Â It’s not the end of the world if we don’t have musicâ€¦it just might be nice on the march to Princess P’s.
7â€”a great attitude, your principles and a sense of humor as well as purpose.
8â€”patience.Â If the HuffPo or other leftwing brigades bother to appear, DO NOT LET THEM GOAD YOUâ€¦.that is their sole purpose.Â I say: IGNORE THEM!
And here are some good stats to keep in mind and perhaps spur you on to attend a Tea Party today (via Newt Gingrich):
â€¢Â Â Â If you’re a 50-year old-with a college degree, you will pay approximately $81,000 over your working life just to pay the interest on the debt in the Obama budget.
â€¢Â Â Â If you’re a 40-year-old, you’ll pay $132,000.
â€¢Â Â Â And if you’re a 20-year-old, just starting out after college, you will pay a whopping $114,000 just to service the interest on the debt created by the Obama budget.
And here is a map of the breadth of the Tea Party protests across the USA.Â Very impressive.
Feel free to email me photos and accounts of your Tea Party activities.Â I will try my best to get them up, though I will be on work travel later today.
I also hope to be able to stop by the Charlotte Tea Party on my way to the airport today.
