From our friend David:
I am sure you have all seen the video "The Shout Heard Round the World" from Rick Santelli that started the "Tea Party Movement."
I sat around and watched other cities throw tea parties and I waited for someone to organize a Salt Lake Tea party. When no one did, I decided to do it myself!
So, I am organizing a "Salt Lake Tea Party" on the West Stairs of the Utah State Capitol to protest the out-of-control spending and the squandering of our country's future. The "Salt Lake Tea Party" (in honor of the Boston Tea Party) will be on Friday, March 6, 2009 at the Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City. Poster making begins at 11:00 AM and the rally will kick off at 12:00 noon when the legislators break for lunch. We want to tell the legislators what we think as they walk down the stairs to go to lunch. There are tax breaks and bailouts for everyone who made this mess and people who made prudent decisions within their means are left to pay for the cleanup.
Here you can see the other Tea Parties across the country--Notice Salt Lake has been added to the list! :)
Now, I will stand and talk to the wind if no one shows up. But, it would be better if you could help me get the word out and let the politicians know what we think. Better yet, COME AND JOIN US!

Wahoooooooo! Do I bring my own poster stuff? Never been to a protest before. What’s the protocol?
Not sure, I would contact david at the e-mail address provided. My guess would be yes, you bring your own stuff. See you there!
Did you make it? I was there. Had a great time. Thought David gave a wonderful speech. “Mr. Obama, put down that shovel.” Excellent!
