It would appear that, on average, you’re safer at a Tea Party than a music awards ceremony.
“...Randys offense: Failing to appear for a court hearing...”
...that was scheduled on a different date from what was in his official notification.
That upheaval is coming, we shall see how quickly this fall.
The finale: “Tea Party fear in the eyes of Liberals: priceless.”
That’s the strange (nowadays) “peace” of many Tea Party rallies, that you don’t fear for your personal safety or your wallet, and everyone seems like an unknown friend.
Nobody locks their car doors, except if they go to town in the summer. If you don't, people will leave grocery bags full of surplus zucchini from their garden in your car while you're gone.
So true. I've really enjoyed it. It feels like the old days when you could leave your door unlocked, or a good old fashioned hometown Independence Day celebration. It's a slice of America that many of us treasure and others seem to have forgotten or never known.
But I still like deer hunting in Missour"uh" every fall! :)
And that's a slice of America the Tea Party wants to make the norm in America for our posterity!!
Mine came to Missouri from Glascow County, KY. back in the late 1800’s, and were among the original half dozen or so families that originally settled and established the town.
And we pick up the trash on the way out.................and in November we’ll take out the garbage..................
Well put Red Badger!!!
-"Tea Party nut jobs"
-"it was all proven!" congressional members spit on and called 'N' word
-"it's a white movement" people of color were not present at tea party
-"why do you associate yourself with 'these' people?" to Tom Tancredo regarding tea party participants
-" do you have a problem with people of color?" also to Tom Tancredo
I was in DC for the health care protest and decided to ask one of the cops about the crowd. He said he liked working the Tea Party gatherings the most since people didn’t cause any problems.
He also said that he’d never be that far away from his SUV for any of the other crowds - he was about 20 yards away from it talking to us.
He also said that they didn’t even bother deploying snipers on the roof of the Capitol except when Obama was there.
Later on I saw a piece of blowing paper and had to chase it around trying to pick it up and when I looked up the SUV full of cops were watching me and grinning.
They know who the bad guys are, and it ain’t us.
Cases of B.O. reported: 0
The negative press is yet another example of this regime marginalizing voters.
One of the best pictures I ever saw was after the first march on DC - where the “mall” was a sea of people - and after they left - there was not one piece of paper anywhere on the grounds where they had been.
Fast-forward to Obama’s party after his election ...... and another sea of people on the mall .. after THEY left .. it was a horrible mess.
This is so typical of the right and left. The right has respect for property .. and respect for the monuments in DC. The left on the otherhand, has no respect for anybody or anything.
That made me laugh...even though I kinda knew what the
answer was going to be!
And then quote similar stats on the last several mass rallies of Lefties at a WTO, G20, etc.
If we're the "Far Right" then let's compare our protest Rap Sheet to the "Far Left's."
Actually, the infant is alive and well today, albeit no longer an infant.
14 year old Sammy Weaver was the one you meant, I think. He was the first Weaver to die.
You’re right. Some hours after my posted response I remembered the boy shot while fleeing. I believe Vicki was holding her baby when she was shot.
You'd think LEO would point that out or that SOMEONE would bring it up as a point in a discussion. It's a subtle trait that underscores a tremendous difference in character, demeanor, and behavior between Tea Partiers and your usual left-wing rent-a-mob.
Tea Partiers give a damn!
The one that I went to was perfectly safe.
I'd not bring my kids to one, because 1) I'm a firm believer that kids and politics don't mix, ever. and 2) Who knows what NON-TEAPARTY nutjob will show up (there was one at ours, quickly handled). But....those points aside, I'd have been fine with my kids attending. It was perfectly safe, must've been easy duty for the cops who were there.
It wasn't a whole lot different from a church service. Same type people. Less sermonizing.
If you’re in an area where lots of businesses are protected by bars in their windows, you’re probably in a Democratic precinct.
Wasn’t there a US Marshall killed, also?
Do you mean at Ruby Ridge? I’m quite sure that did not occur. But I’m open to proof to the contrary. I live on the southern fringe of Northern Idaho, am an avid consumer of news reports, and do not remember Randy W. or any of his family being charged with killing, or even injuring a federal agent. That would have been completely out of character for Randy Weaver, IMO.
I’m embarrassed with my lack of knowledge about Ruby Ridge, since I worked in Jackson, WY from 1989-1995, and we usually traveled to Idaho Falls at least twice a month.
But there used to be a 10K road race back here in Massachusetts that was in memory of US Marshal William Degan. I ran in it every year until it folded, and I seem to recall the references to Ruby Ridge.
So I Googled “Degan” and ended up reading all about Ruby Ridge as well. Degan was killed at Ruby Ridge by Kevin Harris. In what has to be the ultimate irony, the feds ended up settling a civil suit by paying Harris $380,000.
Thanks for refreshing my knowledge of that sad incident.
........And so it begins..........
True story - Freeper Mike Evers gave the opening speech on April 15th Tea Party in Orlando, Fl. Part of Mike’s Tea Party speeches has included throwing pink slips (pink slips of paper about 5” x 5”)into the audience while telling them to throw the Dems this November. At this particular Tea Party I helped Mike throw out the papers - and collect them.
After his speech was finished, I went around to collect the slips and was met by people holding out handful after handful of the slips; people were literally chasing me down as I made the rounds to hand over their pile. By the time I made one trip through the area I could not find a single slip left - the crowd had assured the area was clean without having to be told or asked to do it.
As we were leaving I did happen to see one slip that had blown into a large tree planter. Out of literally hundreds of pieces of paper only one could be considered litter. Yes, I grabbed it and threw it away in a trash can.
It is not a joke when we say “and we don’t litter” in fact we leave the area cleaner then how we found it.
Contrast this to a few liberal events - say the Dem Convention in Denver, Obama’s coronation, the so-called Million Man March etc etc etc.
Is it no wonder the left has to make up lies about the Tea Parties?
Given the caliber of people who attend these events even litterbugs are hard to find. And yet, the media wants people to believe we are a bunch of violent, racist, anarchists, hell-bent on destroying Obama because of the color of his skin.
Thanks again for helping pick up those pink slips. I’ll be using them again and again as we head toward November.
More like hell-bent on restoring the Constitution!
I have a suggestion for those pink slips.
Ask the people that are inspired to do so to write a member of congress’ name on it and snail mail it to him/her.
Then you will have fewer to recover and will have many of them sent to those that need to be ousted in the House and Senate
Hopefully TPX IV (To be “injected” into every state) will come close to Orlando later this year!
We Floridians have nice big pink slips waiting for the DEMS in every Congressional district! And some RINO’s will be in line for their pink slips too!
************* Right now it is time to watch the upcoming SPECIAL ELECTION in PA Congressional District 12 to fill Murtha's old seat and help spread the word about Bill Russell! Donations to a REAL CONSERVATIVE can be made here:
Veterans For Bill Russell:
(WE PATRIOTS WILL NOT SUPPORT THE RNC ELITE PICK you saw Newt and Hannity push named Tim Burns, ie same,same friend of Gleason and Murtha!)
I can picture it now...
"The Tea Party is responsible for creating a lack of work for our police, sanitation and window repair workers..."/s
Looks like Bill Russell is in the right place at the right time.
Think so. And I can’t vote for him but sure hope all PA Freepers will give him their support in any way they can! The election is only 24 days away!
I’ll be voting for him soon.
I like it!
"Peaceful Tea Parties cause nationwide police fitness crisis!"
That looks more like Jesus than Mohammed ;^)
