IT'S ON!! PRESIDENT'S DAY PROTEST AT WESTLAKE PARK IN SEATTLE!

The protest against the porkulus is on for President's Day!

Date: Monday, February 16th
Time: 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Where: Westlake Park in downtown Seattle, 401 Pine St., in the open area by the big arch.

The idea is to use what we've learned about dissent over the last eight years. We need loud protests with lots noise and visuals. So, what should you bring?

Bring AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN! Bring your families, your friends, neighbors, bring everyone!

Bring SIGNS!! Get those craft making juices flowing and make signs and banners and pictures and paintings. Just imagine that you are a left-wing college student with nothing else to do and that should help you get started!

Bring something to sit on and appropriate clothing.

Most importantly, JUST BRING IT!!!

  1. Hi sounds like a great idea, we will be there! While were at it, perhaps some people could bring signs that have to do with the amnesty bill for illegals... to learn more about this path to the destruction of america check out this link to watch Lou Dobbs talk about it on CNN... I can assure you, one more of many things our founding fathers did not intend...

  2. I heard about your protest on the Kirby Wilbur program this morning and must say that you're a brave and wonderful young woman. I'm planning on attending the protest and have forwarded your website url to all my conservative friends. It's high time conservatives use the tactics of the left against them!

  3. I am so there!

    I read this on-line - I wish we could get this guy there:


    Sometimes politicians, journalists and others exclaim; "It's just a tax cut for
    the rich!" and that is just accepted to be fact, without question. But what does
    that really mean? Just in case you are not completely clear on this issue, the
    following might help.

    Let's put tax cuts in terms everyone can understand. Suppose that every day, ten
    men go out for beer, drink the same amount, and the bill for all ten comes to
    $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something
    like this:

    The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
    The fifth would pay $1...
    The sixth would pay $3...
    The seventh would pay $7.
    The eighth would pay $12.
    The ninth would pay $18.
    The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
    So , that's what they decided to do.

    The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the
    arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. "Since you are all
    such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer
    by $20."Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

    The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first
    four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the
    other six men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so
    that everyone would get his 'fair share?'

    They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from
    everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being
    paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to
    reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out
    the amounts each should pay. And so:


    The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
    The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
    The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
    The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
    The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
    The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

    Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to
    drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their
    savings.

    "I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the sixth man. He pointed to the
    tenth man," but he got $10!"

    "Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a dollar, too. It's
    unfair that he got ten times more than I!"

    "That's true!!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 back when I got
    only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!"

    "Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at
    all. The system exploits the poor!"


    The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
    The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and
    had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered
    something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even
    half of the bill!

    And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax
    system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a
    tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just
    may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the
    atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

  5. Think like a left-wing college student!?! OK, I just tried that, and smoke started curling out of my ears. The current administration is doing nothing to solve the problem of military conscription, the social security scam, deficit spending and hyperinflation, being able to afford a house to live in some day, pay off student loans, or even get a non-government job after I graduate. I'm even more of a slave to the state thinking like a left-wing college student. Free me! Join the resistance! You know what, I hope everyone brings a litter bag and picks up a piece of Seattle trash while they’re at it. It would be a shame for this place to end up looking like the Mall did after all those “environmentalists” visited for the inauguration.

  6. Yes! I plan to ask everyone to make sure that they help pick up afterwards, afterall, we believe in self responsibility and walking the walk - i.e. if we complain about the environment, then we're going to clean up after ourselves.
    Can't wait to meet you all on Monday!!

  7. Saw it on the news. Self employed, so I will be there.
    As a person that constantly works with logic, the left way of thinking makes my brain hurt if I try to figure it out.

  9. Hello, I am Count Porkulas, and I want to suck your funds.
    Liberal cities no good for fund sucking.
    So many arms, outreached, palms up grasping for entitlements, so many there are no funds.
    So you can see my excitement at the thought of so many productive people all gathered at once.
    CD's, IRA's, savings & 401k's....
    Ahhhh, Yesss... I will suck them all, DRY!

  10. Great idea, Liberty! I unfortunately can't be there because I live in northern Michigan, but I'm writing a post about your efforts at Wizbang and Up North Mommy Politics. Keep up the good work and I hope you have a great turn out.

  12. I found out about this through Wizbang, and it's a great idea! I hope you get substantial numbers out there, and please remember to tape this if possible, so it can be placed on YouTube. We've put a link directing folks to the information on our site as well. God be with you all ...

  13. I wish I could be there. If nothing else, the process around the way this bill was created stinks. No transparency, no accountability. Posted a link here at our blog libertylive.org which should get around to our members. Please post pics and updates about how it went.

  14. LibertyBelle you freaking ROCK!

    It is time conservatives demonstrate and protest to get our message out!

    I tried to rally folks to march at their state capitol on monday in a thread at Hot Air. No support at all there. Most just want to sit on their couch and Twitter their outrage.

    That is NOT ENOUGH!

    The left will steamroll us on every issue from immigration to Prop 8 if we do not protest.

    I will be supporting you from the state capitol in Sacramento from 12-3 holding a big sign that say HONK! IF YOU HATE THE STIMULUS on one side and PALIN 2012 on the other.

    I didn't want to go the anti-Obama route and turn folks off immediately. I'll hook 'em with the stimulus then hit them with a little Palin propaganda.

    ....funny thing is I was going to be there at noon before I ever heard about this thing. I went to the art store sunday for my supplies - but almost decided to wait until Tuesday when legislators are there.

    I just have to add a little glitter glue for some panache and I'm ready!

    Thanks for the re-motivataion and making me feel like I won't be alone!!!

    GOD BLESS!
