Tea Party Map: Over 500,000 views; 460 Tea Parties Listed
Freedom Works ^ | 4-9-09 | Thomas Keeley

Posted on 04/10/2009 5:18:59 AM PDT by edzo4

While many members of the mainstream media have been negligent in covering what has become a nationwide, grassroots movement, activists across the country have taken it upon themselves to make sure the word is getting out.

This afternoon, while looking at the GoogleMap we have been updating, I noticed that it has already generated over 500,000 views, and we now have listed well over 450 upcoming events.


TOPICS: Activism/Chapters; Business/Economy; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: revolt; taxes; teaparty

Larger interactive map, HERE

Jim Quinn is going to be the MC at the Pittsburgh party on April 15th.

Hopefully, he will be strapped, as is his usual dress, I’ve heard.

12 o’clock

Market Square

I’m the ugly old guy with a hearing impairment, red Polo shirt, who needs a haircut. See you there. Introduce yourself.

I noticed yesterday that the Tea Party for West Palm Beach isn’t on there. We’re having one Wednesday April 15th at 5pm at the Main Courthouse located at 205 N. Dixie Hwy in downtown West Palm Beach. How do we get that updated?

I’m thinking that one way to get the media’s attention is to take the protest to them. A few hundred angry citizens outside the studio or office might make some of these hacks nervous. And they need to know that even with their complicity, our message will not go unheard.

This is only the start because as more of Obama’s taxes hit home and bloated state governments try to raise taxes more people will say enough.

Couldn’t find this one listed for Washington, Pennsylvania:

Nationwide Tax Tea Party!

Commissioner Diana Irey invites you to a Tea Party on the Washington County Courthouse steps on Wednesday, April 15th!

Our friend Rose Tennent will help lead the event after making several mentions of the Tea Party on the “The War Room with Quinn and Rose” on 104.7 FM! As a result, much interest has already been generated and the event continues to grow!

Also in attendance at the event will be Congressman Tim Murphy and Tim Burns, who is exploring his candidacy for the U.S. Congressional seat currently held by Congressman Murtha.

When: Wednesday, April 15th at 5:00 PM
Where: Washington County Courthouse, Front Steps

For inquiries please email Diana at Diana@Irey.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
