UPDATE: Check out this inspirational message from a newly minted American citizen.
Dear Readers: Yesterday, I recounted a story told to me by a serious-minded organizer working with the Tax Day Tea Party group. It appears that a Tea Party was slated to be held at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office in San Francisco at a specific date and time, as organized by a newbie grassroot tax revolter. However, the more experienced leftist malcontents posted phony and confusing dates/times for the event. Subsequently, the Tea Party had only 20 protesters on site, instead of the anticipated 500. Needless to say, the elite San Fransisco media mocked this effort.
The members of the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition would like to extend our support to our northern citizens, who struggle mightily against toxic combination of do-gooder-ism and political hypocrisy rampant in the Bay Area. The correct information, and the event we would LOVE to get everyone to focus on in Northern Californian, IS:
Date: Wednesday, April 15th.
Time: 11 am – when the tea is done.
Location: Meet at Civic Center Park in front of city hall. March will start at San Francisco City Hall and go to federal building where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office is located.
This tale has a couple of important points:
1) Use caution in selecting your Tea Party location, and make sure you are joining a group that matches your sensibilities. It seems some Tea Parties may be set-up by politicians, political groups, and Third Party agitators to expand their mailing lists. Two places to start looking for organizations that are non-partisan and grassroots are at Pajamas TV and Tax Day Tea Party.
2) It would be wonderful to really see a HUGE turnout at Madame Pelosi’s SF portal. Pelosi is one of the leading representatives whose taxing ways has brought on the Tea Party Revolt. For instance, she crammed through the Democrat-special-interest-rich Porkulus bill and threatens a second one. Her hypocrisies are legion. A significant protest at her office would send a strong message, especially given the location.
We respectfully ask all Northern Californians interested in being involved in a Tea Party to try and come to the San Francisco Tea Party on April 15th. For more details and related links, go HERE!
