    I am planning on being at my state capitol tea party but am tempted to go to San Antonio. There will be a big one at the Alamo. Glenn Beck and Chuck Norris will be at that one.
    Don't know if it will do any good tho. One days coverage in the MSM then forgotten. But it's a start. If God forbid the day ever comes that we have to resort to the last box option then at least I can say that I participated in the others first.

    Got this today. Seems like the prostiticians are trying to jump on board now that this thing is starting to take off.

    ===========================================================

    "Grassroots Teaparty Efforts and You" has been posted on multiple sites and is yours
    for sharing to warn people about the insidious effort to make globalist Newt Gingrich our leader and future president through the teaparty effort. I object strenuously to using the grassroots to do that.

    Please share this piece with everyone in your teaparty team so that you will be able to appropriately respond to questions.

    Newt is the leader and Al Gore invented the internet and Monica desexed BJs. I am always amazed at the origins of some of these things. I wish a cigar was still just a smoke.

    The wife is a great artist and she wants to make some signs to take with us. We have been trying to think up slogans.
    My idea was a checklist with the first being " Ballot Box" checked off with a big red check mark. Then "Soap Box" checked off. And last "Ammo Box" without a check mark.

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    Wish I had a three cornered hat!!

    Minuteman Chaplain Moderator Founding Member

    I have been researching slogans and came across these. My wife is making posters.

    The ones in red are ones i really liked. I think I am going to go with my original idea tho.

    First They Came for Joe the Plumber…

    I READ AS MUCH OF THE STIMULUS BILL AS MY CONGRESSMAN DID

    FREE MARKETS NOT FREELOADERS

    First they came for the person earning over $250,000…

    O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! ~ Patrick Henry

    I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents…-James Madison

    When there’s a single thief, it’s robbery. When there are a thousand thieves, it’s taxation.-Vanya Cohen

    Taxation with representation ain’t so hot either.

    What at first was plunder assumed the softer name of revenue.-Thomas Paine

    “If this be treason make the most of it.” -Patrick Henry

    3 Simple Words: WE THE PEOPLE

    Can We Bankrupt The Country? YES WE CAN

    Don’t Tax Me Bro

    DOWNSIZE D.C.

    Give us liberty; not debt

    GOD Only Requires 10%

    I Will Keep my Freedom, my Guns, my Money.
    You Keep THE CHANGE!

    If YOU Voted Yes to Spending,
    Consider This Your Going Away Party


    I’ll keep my freedom, you keep the Change

    Party Like It’s 1773

    Remember Us: WE THE PEOPLE

    TEA = Tyranny Elimination Army

    Revolution is Brewing

    The Answer to 2009 is 1776

    Trickle Up Poverty

    USA 1776 - 2008: RIP

    We Don’t Need No Stinkin Socialism !

    The one sign I wish I had seen:

    PASS OUT THE AR-15'S WE WILL MAKE THE CHANGE!

    It was a pretty good crowd, one of my favorite signs was held by a 5 year old boy "I'm five years old and I already owe $34,000 and I have no job."

    Another: "Honk if I am paying your mortgage!"

    I attended one at the State Capitol. Crowd estimates are ranging from 3,500 to 7000 people. I think the upper end is closer. I took my daughter out of school and took my two oldest granddaughters. We had a great time. It was awesome. I was proud of the organizers, they refused to allow any politicians to speak or to even sit with the organizers. There were many there but they had to stand out in the crowd with everyone else.

    A sea of yellow "Gadsen" flags. One sign I saw that got a lot of laughs was a young girl about 9 that had a cast on her arm. Her sign said "My arm is broken and so is my government"

    I was glad to see a lot of young college aged twentysomethings in the crowd and many of them were the most vocal. I talked to many people who said that they had never attended any kind of protest or political rally before.
    One middle aged woman told me that she had told her son she was going to a protest rally and he said "You! Your not going to carry I sign are you?"
    She told him she already had made it.

    Saw a lot of kids. I thought it was important for my daughter to see people assembling to protest. It was a great civics lesson for her.

    I went to one in Honesdale (Wayne County, PA seat, in front of the Court House.) About 400 folks showed up, most over 50, and one old gal that had to be over 70. (She spoke of some jackass paying for Girl Scout cookies with a counterfeit 20 and imagined that it and the real thing were worth about the same.) I'd guess 25% female, and half the men showed their hands when the MC ask if there were any vets there. 3 cops, stayed in the back. One TV station (Ch 13, don't know which network) had a camera and reporter on site, they left right after opening ceremonies were done. Some ten speakers, three of which were quite as eloquent as zero. Four politicians were blasted, by name. Zero, Barney the fruit, Allen Spector, and that cabbage (Collins) from Maine. (Dunno how Fat Ted avoided the hammer, but he did.)
    Several Gadsden flags on site. There were no cat calls, meaning they were preaching to the choir, with the expected messages:
    -Inadequate representation
    -Passing the bailout when not one rep read it first
    -Term limits, UP, perpetual professional politicians DOWN
    -Reduced pay for reps, and send them home more often to learn how to make a living
    -Reduced government
    -Too much debt (one guy estimated that the US now owes over half a million per household of FRNS, no matter what they are actually worth.)
    -Call, write, e-mail your reps at all levels.
    -Vote all incumbents OUT next opportunity
    Took a few pix, will post if any of them are worth it. (Still in the camera.)

    5PM local news on NBC showed another party in Stroudsburg, about 150 people, and the one in Scranton was mentioned, no body count. Then zero was featured telling everyone how he's going to cut a couple dollars out of the budget. That'll be a change we can vote for.

    ABC News just reported that the Tea Parties were organized by Corporate lobbiest. What a crock of BS!. Our local station kept saying that there were at least a hundred, maybe two hundred people at the Mobile Party today; I counted over two thousand signs and I can assure you most people were not carrying signs.

    Guess Wisconsin state capital madison (motto: We're so far left we need passports; it's like another country) had 8,000+. I attended one downtown Wausau; organizers were hoping for better than 200;we got 2 to 3,000 in the town square.
    permitfortheeventwas bought (paid for out of pocket by the local "housewife" who stepped up to the plate and put it together...(not some lobbyist)..

    chaplain here's your sign:

    " far right wild eyed anti-federal activist
    A genuine borderline Neo Nazi Racialist
    A Mossad Jihad Christian Fundamentalist
