Calm Before the Storm: Tea Paaaarrttyyyyy!

Everyone is pumped for tomorrow's Tea Party! Let's show them who's boss, right?? I mean, the term is "public servant," is it not?

Details for the Seattle Tea Party in case anyone needs them:
Where: Westlake Park, 410 Pine St. by the big arch.
When: Friday, February 27th, 2009
Time: 12:15 - 1:15, speaking will begin at 12:20, music and lunch (bring a sack lunch!) until 1:10, clean up afterwards.
Bring: signs that convey the immorality of this tax and spend mentality. Go here for sign slogan ideas, and to maintain the unity of our message. Bring your lunch and some tea bags to send to Washington D.C. - or as someone suggested today, maybe we'll take them down to the Federal building on Jackson and dump them at Patty and Maria's feet. SNAP!

The weather may be of concern to some, but allow me to inspire you to show up no matter what the weather, with this story from Ma LibertyBelle:
The snow on the ground reminded me of our continental army freezing, starving and surviving at Valley Forge from Dec 1777 to June 1778. They drilled inspite of their circumstances (2500 died of the elements) and by June, the Continental Army was disciplined and more confident
So, if they suffered through those conditions to fight for their freedom and liberty, I'm preeeeetttyyyy sure we can fight for ours, in the cold, for a measly half an hour to an hour. Just bundle up folks. Oh, and I know, bring some hot tea! ;)

Now to leave you with a song and a quote, as you prepare for this battle tomorrow. Goodnight! 

"Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and to repulse it."
–The Crisis by Thomas Paine

  2. Hi Liberty. I want to help the movement with my service called CelleCast. It works with your campaign to keep the media honest, by giving everyone a way to easily talk back to the news when they stray from the facts. Viral effects possible.

    Please sign up here, listen to a show or 2, and shout out your talkback.

  4. I was working, alas, but Instapundit has photos of and links to Tea Parties all over the nation.

    In the meantime, Victor Davis Hanson has a typically thoughtful piece up called Recessional.

  5. Great - lets connect and keep this movement growing. This reckless spending is a drunk idea of sobriety.
