California Porkulus Tea Party?
Feb 21, 2009 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 02/21/2009 11:12:15 AM PST by Jim Robinson

Anyone up for a California Porkulus Tea Party? I suggest we get together and dump our Obama Porkulus Tea ™ into one or more of our California harbors? San Francisco? Oakland? Sacramento? Stockton? Ventura? Long Beach? San Diego?

How about it folks?

Like Rick Santelli, we're madder than hell and we're not going to take it any longer!!

Down with tyranny!!

Long live Liberty!!

We don’t need to put anything in the water. The signs will take care of the message.

If we can do San Francisco on Friday the 27th and Sacramento on Saturday we can make both!

Amen!

"Rejoice evermore.

Pray without ceasing.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." -- 1 Thess. 5:16-18

Even this monumental travesty of an illegitimate President and a trillion dollar yoke around our necks is under the absolute control of the Almighty Triune God who will not be mocked.

"My religious beliefs teach me to feel as safe in battle as in bed.  God has fixed the time of my death.  I do not concern myself with that, but to be always ready whenever it may overtake me.  That is the way all men should live, and all men would be equally brave." - Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson

I have some tea bags, but physically can’t drive very far any more. All the harbors are too far from here.

I could donate some gas money, but I’d rather send my dwindling cash for you to use on your crosscountry tour to visit the regional chapters.

And McClintock wants some more money to stockpile for his 2010 Congressional seat campaign.

Best of luck to all!

For those around Orange County or San Bernardino keep an eye on the KFI 640 John & Ken site. They will be holding a Tax Revolt Rally as soon as they secure a location. I look forward to going.

I was disappointed that the Republicans didn't leave the Lockdown in a Civil Disobedient way to make a point on no new taxes. Could have been a start to an anti tax revolution. Of course all they were doing was posturing and acting, nothing else.

It's an old thread.

You have to refresh it several times, or hit f5 over and over again.

I think you were reinstated.

Brad said all you did was mope around all day for the 18 seconds that you thought you were banned...

Plan on attending one or more local(other)tea party type events and have been trying to come up with ideas for signs to take with me. Here are a few I've come up with so far, but I am open to others suggestions.

If dependence is your idea of HOPE you can keep the CHANGE

Don't blame me I voted for NONE OF THE ABOVE

Help me Mr. Obama, they want me to work and stuff!

YES WE CAN!...HAVE EVERYTHING FOR FREE!

It's 11PM, do you know where your wallet is?

Hey Government, stop dumping your incompetence on my kids

They are democrats, their corruption doesn't count

Obama walks on water, while everyone else drowns

Trillion here, trillion there...so what?

What do you call a 40 year liberal wish list?...A trillion dollar stimulus package

If I have to pay for your house...you have to pay for my viagra

Government...the ultimate ponzi scheme

DOWNSIZE D.C.!

Thank you Rodney King!

Pelosi's idea of universal health care...free botox and abortions...for "the children"

Government doesn't create jobs...they cremate jobs

Thank you sir, may I have another?

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...it's just Barney Frank with Freddie's Fannie

Obama Matthews and Olbermann...I thought polygamy was illegal?

Obama and MSNBC...I now pronounce you husband and wife

Have a seat Barney Frank...I'm Chris Hanson with Dateline NBC

Now Showing...Pelosi and Reid as Bonnie and Clyde

Help me ACORN...I'm dead and I only got to vote once

Hey Al Franken...Is it too late to change my vote? Where's my cigarettes?

Obama Pelosi and Reid...three thieves that we don't need

Arrogance is not leadership and I already have a messiah...NEXT!

Hey Obama girl...get a life..better yet...get a job

Senator Jim DeMint is pretty much on board with the way we think here.

Saving America: Time to hit the streets? (Senator Jim DeMint>

Sunday, February 22, 2009 12:07:49 AM · by Syncro · 16+ views
Augusta Chronicle ^ | Sunday, February 22, 2009 | Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff
From that thread:

The stately senator from South Carolina sees America's unique centuries-old system of freedom dying out.

And he thinks we may have to take to the streets to save it.

"I would think it's time to start thinking about peaceful demonstrations," he told us last week.

Seriously?

"Seriously.

"The power of the people is there. Freedom is in the people's hands right now, and it's about to slip through."
