Skip to comments.Anti-Stimulus [Tea Party] Protests Sprout Up
Posted on 02/21/2009 7:17:13 AM PST by Sammy67
Holding signs reading "Stimulate Business, Not Government," "Families Against Porkulus" and "Say No To Generational Theft," protesters opposed to the $787 billion stimulus package have been mobilizing across the country.
It started last Monday in Seattle, then moved Tuesday to Denver, where President Obama signed the stimulus bill into law. That was followed by another one in Mesa, Ariz., where Obama unveiled a mortgage rescue plan.
Another protest was planned for Saturday outside the office of Rep. Dennis Moore in Overland Park, Kan. The Democrat voted for the stimulus. His office didn't return calls seeking comment.
A New Populism?
As unemployment soars and anger over Wall Street bailouts mounts, public outrage will seek an outlet. Populism could go in many directions and could easily ebb when the economy revives.

A “Stimulus” video well worth the time!
If you’d like 3 semester hours of education on Economics in 11 minutes, please take the time.
Let’s start with Specter, Collins and Snowe.
Right now, I have the picture of B.Hussein on a pig with the PORKULUS (like Ben Hur) and the comment "Hey, B.O. - AMERICAN'S WANT TAX CUTS"
B. HUSSEIN OBAMA (next line) DEMOCRAT. SOCIALIST. PUPPET.
It's working out well. Dems are weenies...none of them have the crust to do anything but shake their heads when they drive by. It's comical.
Wow what a LOT of work and well done.
It started last Monday in Seattle,
That is amazing. Seattle is a bastion of liberal die hards.
“Specter, Collins and Snowe”
Hot tar, feathers and a rail, I’m just sayin’...
Ni ut started when we freeped Specter in DC!
I just found the link here at FR and want to effectively promote it.
Promote away....this needs to be seen by all. It is a bit long for the average Joe...I guess I’m average, but VERY good info, none-the-less!
I don’t want the 13.00 a week from stimulus package. Can I refuse the money? If so, how do I go about doing that?
I’m just taking a cue from the various governor’s.
It would have been nice if some of these folks would have joined us in DC - BEFORE - the danged thing was passed!
What good do all these protests do now???
It may take till 2010 to get the old Throw the Bums Out going again.
While I agree, that feat is our biggest obstacle, IMHO.
Everyone wants to be a star and although all protests and rallies are good, we NEED huge numbers working together to face the commies down!
Excellent. Moves a little too fast...but once you get in the groove it’s not so bad.
Sending it out!
I wonder how many of those people voted for the Messiah. Time for “I regret my vote” T-shirts?
Take the money. Then immediately forward it to a conservative cause of your choice. Help the porkulus destroy itself.
These really won’t matter until they start burning down offices of politicians that voted for the debt/pork packages...
That probably begins late summer as it all sinks in and the details of where the money went. People are really getting mad. I think that’s what the wannabe *ruler* wants.
with the politicians in them? JUST KIDDING!
But seriously, people have often miscast the possibility of revolution as doomed because “you can’t fight jets and tanks” but that’s not how it would be done.
First of all, ALL States function as a result of their credibility or fear of punishment (combined with ‘opinion.’) Without it, all States are basically outnumbered in manpower by the citizenry. Second, that assumes that all military personnel would follow orders or that the orders would be given to perform bombing runs on American cities or towns. Third, since it’s the politicians who give the orders and act as holders of State credibility, the issue would be much more simply solved by going after those who are invested with the power of the State, not in battlefield confrontations with a superior foe.
So what you suggest is how it could be done. The problem is, we have some sneaky and evil people who will use any potential revolution as the means by which to accumulate MORE power to the State and to preferred classes of people and to consolidate their own tyrannical powers.
~~~ Feb. 27th Tea Party ..... PING!
If your state isn’t indicated for an event, think
about putting it together now. Contact your FR locale
board and organize your area FReepers for your Tea
At the top of each state’s page, you’ll find the list
of FReepers from that state.
Then you should post that info on the FReeper locale
board for your state; i.e., California’s board:
Every time a FReeper opens FR for the 1st time that
day, the newest board message will appear.
No — a revolution!
A 2010 GOP house can throw out 60% of Porkulus.
What is the point? The dems won’t care until we have a civil war.
The point is that in the 21st century we can't have a civil war. But we can use 21st century technology to our advantage. The written word has more power now than ever before. Think about it: Right now, you're reading the ramblings of a schmuck like me. Would that have been possible 20 years ago? In 1775, it took months for the "shot heard 'round the world" to be heard. In 2009, it takes microseconds for the likes of me to send my message worldwide. I'm a gun owner, and the second amendment reaffirms my right to bear arms, and all the power therein. I'm also a computer owner, and the first amendment reaffirms my right to free speech, and all that power therein. Right now, my Compaq laptop is a much more effective weapon than my Colt M1911A1.
The Dems will care if we overwhelm them with a barrage of facts. I am confident that we can go very far on the first amendment. If not, we then still have the second amendment to fall back on.
Or... posting pictures of them with their lovers on the internet...
What better reason to declare Marshall Law! Ol Floopy Ears knows what he is doing and we are playing right into his hands. But, he forgets... we are tough and we are fighting for our lives and liberty!
Actually, we ought to start with ACORN who believe that they have a right to engage in civil disobedience. Did you read the story of an ACORN group who cut off the padlock on a foreclosed house to let the defaulting owner back in?
We had better start now before they launch their own version of "Kristallnacht."
The Dems won't be able to recognize real facts if it bit them on the nose, and they don't give a GD about the 2nd Amendment or any other part of the Constitution. The people that we need to reach first are the ones who did not vote for Obama.
No! That's preaching to the converted, which is a waste of time. We need to reach those who did vote for Obama, so they won't vote for him again.
Look, we all have friends and relatives who voted for B. Hussein. They are the ones who hold the key. As the new administration continues to show its true colors, it is up to us to help the hoodwinked to see the light. The MSM have their resources to run interference for Obama, but grass roots vigilance, assisted by the internet, can squash the MSM and help to get America back on track. It really IS up to us!
The reason why I said the choir first is because we've been dismissed as a handful of right-wing nutjobs -- by the media, by lawmakers, and even by the courts. I want Obama supporters and the media to see a lot of p*ssed-off people -- especially friends and family members -- marching by the thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands in Washington.
I think this is their next plan of action - shut people up with threats, intimidation, and after that, arrest. ALready happened in OK.
They cant kill or shut up everyone ..
Funny you should mention that.
I watched a couple of minutes of Olbermann on Fri Night because O and Jonathan Alter were in hysterics about Alan Keyes and presumably the eligibility lawsuit.
The nationality question was answered on election day by the voters.
Obama produced his birth certificate from the hospital where he was born
and posted it on his website.
Keyes is coming pretty close to inciting a riot by continuing to bring up the birth certificate question
and is coming close to a visit by the Secret Service.
Apparently, Barry thinks Secret Service = his SS.
