Dear Readers: Three wonderful items juxtaposed themselves into my thoughts last night: 1) Reminders from Michelle Malkin and the Anchoress of open-border rallies held in early May — on socialist Labor Day (May 1st) or Cinco-de-Mayo (May 5th); and, Beers with Demo’s suggestion Americans select a specific day to “Money Bomb” Arizona and send a message of support to its citizens and leadership for actually enforcing the law and promoting the national security.
(MUT Note: Beers with Demo’s Dean had a wonderful compendium of all the problems and consequences associated with Obamacare that have been discovered only after its passage makes for chilling reading..but read it none-the-less: Nancy’s Nuances: A journey of discovery).
As I predicted in my San Diego News Network column (thanks, Left Coast Rebel for the link), grassroots calls for a BUY-cott in support of Arizona have expanded to a formal call for this action via formal, national-scale Tea Party networks.
I would like to call for one, additional step. To counter “Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s demagoguery on Arizona’s immigration enforcement law,” let all we Americans unite in support of Arizona’s citizens by engaging in a “Money Bomb” on the day that many of us might of spent money on Dos Equis, margaritas, and tacos, and send it to people trying to handle this century’s border crisis.
Here is how it works. Firstly, though it is based in New York, we all must buy Arizona Ice Tea. It is a win-win — we annoy the extreme leftists AND get a refreshing drink (though, perhaps, not as alcoholically pleasurable as cerveza).
Next, we “Money Bomb” Arizona’s Jan Brewer, who is running for re-election. Click HERE to contact her formal website. I am in the process of determining the donation site, and will update this post as soon as I figure it out.
Then Americans from across the nation can review the list of Arizona-based businesses, and see what they can do on May 5th to send some money their way. Here is the list I have; I will update with more as I get information:
Arizona Cardinals (Football)
• Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB Baseball)
• Best Western Buffalo Exchange (Second-hand clothing)
• Cable One Phoenix, AZ Source Web Form
• Circle K (Convenience Store)
• Clear Channel Outdoor
• Cold Stone Creamery
• Discount Tire Company
• Fender Music Instruments
• Greyhound Corp.
• Harkins Theatres
• Kona Grill
• Knight Transportation
• Massage Envy
• PF Changs
• Ping (Golf)
• • Phoenix Suns
• Ramada Hotels
• Sky Mall
• Surf City Squeeze
• U-Haul Phoenix,
• University of Phoenix
• US Airways
For example, on May 5th , Texans in the Houston area can go to the Arizona Diamondbacks game (and, as a Padres fan, it kills me to make this suggestion). Perhaps those of you planning a trip to that state can actually make your reservations on May 5th to fly via US Airways or stay at A Ramada later in the year. Contact the Arizona Tourism Center and let them know you plan to go, and ask for recommendations. I know I plan to make a run to PetSmart for supplies for my Egyptian mau.
This year, let’s make May 5th a special day for Americans.
UPDATE: The Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition is planning a tea party day with the Padres when the Diamondbacks come to town in July; stay tuned for details!
