April 15 Protest Tomball/Magnolia TX Post Offices
3/11/09 | Freeper Humidston

Posted on 03/11/2009 12:39:43 PM PDT by Humidston

Newcomers, we're using FR to announce our plans to rally at the Tomball Post Office the night of April 15, 2009, to draw attention to the Democrats' excessive demands of our hard-earned money!

We will target Tomball, but if we get enough interest from everyone, we can spread people out to other post offices (such as Magnolia, Spring, etc) as needed.

Get posterboard, markers, and prepare your hand-made poster. Staple the posterboard on a tomato stake or lath, and get ready for some fun!

Suggestion: We use a theme of KOOL-AID. PASSIVE AMERICANS ARE DRINKING THE "DEMONCRAT" KOOL-AID!

Don't forget to register so that you can participate in adding comments to our thread! We're building an activist group in the Tomball/Mag/Conroe/Spring area! But if you don't want to register, just show up anyway because we WILL BE THERE!

Hopefully, this thread will pick up steam as we get closer to April 15th - our NIGHT OF FUN!

Great idea protesting at the post office to get all those late filers.

I’ll see your bump and give you an Ohio Ping lol

Check this out, instead of traveling to the capital on the 15th do it locally where you already have a bunch of fed up taxpayers

I’m not sure how many interested people are in Cypress, but so far the general reception has been huge, so you may be able to get friends and neighbors involved and do your own in your own neighborhood. Never can tell! OR you’re certainly welcome to come to Tomball!

I just want everyone to be as close to home as possible so it’s easy to participate.

Awwwww........SISTER KK!!! How I miss you!!

Are things ok in your part of the world? EVERY time I do anything like this I think fondly of our old “running” days and I get a little catch in my throat. We sure had fun, didn’t we? It’ll never be the same without you...

*sigh*

Maybe I can get my uninterested brother-in-law over there. He's always saying there's nothing he can do: Meaning I'm playing golf, or watching a game of whatever.

But since his 40lK got crunched again, he might want to vent.

Being ill and housebound for almost a year, I'm sending a teabag in an envelope, postmarked April 1st to: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, D.C. 20500. No name or return address. We want these envelopes to arrive by April 15th, tax day.

A bunch of disgruntled people received e-mails recommending this action.

Fine but do you think it could be bigger by affiliating with the Facebook Teaparty crowd?

You know what? I’m not sure. I’ll have to give that some thought. My problem is we’re already supposed to meld with two separate groups up here and frankly, it can get a little confusing for everyone if we have several different groups moving several different directions at once. Not to mention, all the various websites involved....

I’ll kick it around though! THX!

Not too far, IMO. From Cypress to Tomball, you’d travel up FM 1960, take a left (N) on SH 249 and shoot straight into beautiful downtown Tomball! ;-)

Actually, it’s easier than that. Cypress is at 290 and Spring-Cypress. You can take Spring-Cypress all the way through to 249. =)

I’m so sorry that I’ve been absent from my own thread. It’s been hectic but..........

THAT DOESN’T MEAN I’VE FORGOTTEN ABOUT WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO! APRIL 15 WILL BE THE DAY WHEN WE CAN ALL SEND A MESSAGE TO THE FUHRER THAT WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT LAYING DOWN!

And thanks for the bumps, Ron. :-)

Could I ask you a huge favor?? Could you PLEASE let the Facebook people that we’re targeting Tomball on April 15 @ 8:00?

I haven’t registered on Facebook, but would love to invite everyone. I’m hoping to get at least half of Tomball to attend!

I’ll call it a Teaparty, We Surround Them, A FReeper Call to Action.... whatever it takes to send a message to the dems! ;-)

Do you have an agenda or theme?

Do you have any speakers?

Do you have any talking points?

Do you have permits?

Are you planning to attend?
Live up here?

Have you ever done a rally?

If not, you might want to try it.... it’s cathartic. I know. I’ve been doing it since 1998.

My sister and her husband should be coming with me from Pearland as well. We’re thinking about getting there at 6pm while there is still some daylight instead of 8pm(?).

I chose 8:00 PM because I figure late filers would be straggling in - starting around that time. I see people getting home from work, catching a bite, then beginning to head off for the post office.

Midnight might even be the best time, but NO WAY will I stay that late! LOL!

Of course you can go anytime you want. I’m sure people will be entering and leaving at different times that evening anyway.

My main concern is getting people’s contact info so that we can grow a network of willing activists. If you do go earlier than me, please try to get people to sign up, and I’ll do the same on the “late shift.” ;-)

It was not nor is not my intent to change anything. We just figured we'd get there early and stay late. I'm not sure just how visible our signs would be after the sun goes down at that location as I'm not familiar at all with it. So please, go ahead with your plans my friend. We just want to be a part of the effort.

Oh, and a big BUMP.

Thank you guys, for your support. It should be fun and it looks like lots of people up/out here will be supporting our rally so I’m excitedly looking forward to it! Invite friends, family, co-workers, etc.

We have a planning meeting tomorrow night so we’ll be ironing out details there and I’ll report back asap. I’ve joined a couple of Meetup groups and am dealing with massive amounts of emails - like 250+ every day from all over Houston and it’s a cram session for me to have to wade through all of them. It’s NOT for the faint of heart, LOL.

A friend called tonight yelling, “HOW DO I GET OUT OF MEETUP! MY IN BOX IS PACKED, WITH MORE COMING IN EVERY COUPLE OF MINUTES!” Needless to say, I’m on a steep learning curve with hundreds of emails all day every day. So bear with me!

THANKS!

ALERT:

TOMBALL POST OFFICE IS GOING TO CLOSE AT 4:30 PM, THEREFORE TOMBALL PROTEST WILL BEGIN @ 3:30 AND STOP AT 4:30.

SINCE OUR TIME IS CUT SHORT, WHEN OURS CLOSES WE WILL PROBABLY CARAVAN TO WOODLANDS OR CONROE TEA PARTIES WHICH WILL LAST LONGER.

PLEASE ADJUST SCHEDULES!

BUT I've gotten tons of response locally and we anticipate a really good turnout. People in Tomball/Magnolia are really super patriots!
