While WND has been tracking 170 individual tea parties across the nation, one group has announced it is planning rallies in 1,000 cities and towns on April 15.

The American Family Association, or AFA, is coordinating 1,000 Taxed Enough Already, or TEA, parties to be held at 12 p.m. in front of city halls across the nation.

The organization launched a Tea Party Day website just days ago so volunteer organizers may register their protests with AFA. The website also provides a list of other protests across the nation that are not organized by AFA.


AFA lists tea party organizers from various cities to coordinate the April 15 events and is rapidly adding more by the day. DePrimo said volunteers who do not see their location on the list should visit the Tea Party Day website to add their tea party information. The current list includes the following towns and cities:

Which part of our Constitution has been shredded?

The part guaranteeing that rich folk (alternatively aristocrats, plutocrats, or simply 'royalty') forever and again be entitled to their God-given right to bend-over the rest of American society to ensure THEIR liberty, opportunities, and "freedom" to secure the biggest slice of the economic pie that law (law, not ethics or morality) permits.

I don't remember that part. Is it in the Bill of Rights or the original document?

It's not in either; it's become one of the "informal" amendments....since Congress lost their spine in the 70s and 80s.

Which part of our Constitution has been shredded?

According to some around here, Bush wiped his ass with it for 8 years.

Is that in with the set of amendments that includes "Congress shall not subject itself to the same employment laws as the rest of the nation"?

Precisely. "Informal amendments" are the most important part of the Constitutional law according to most political scientists.

Of course, what do political scientists know; most are flipping burgers at McDonalds or working at the corner car wash.

they just had several thousand in cincy i think it was.

i wish there was one around here. there's a very good (though repressed) conservative base along with a few good talk stations that would turn people out.

Well, only 1-2% were involved in our War for Independence too. And even they had a Tea Party.
What's that quote by Churchill, which I've never been able to find on the net but goes something like this: "in any given conflict only ........2% know what's going on, 5% watch and the rest don't even know what happened...." Something like that. We need influence and a handful of influential people. Just like the ass holes have it who are wrecking this country. Certainly they're not a huge majority either.


Once we get that, we pass into the next phase of Ghandi's famous quote:"First they ignore you, then they mock you, then they fight you, then you win."_ Gandhi

banyon's in the mocking phase.


And I'd add to that: "If or when we win, we get to write the history books."—BucEyedPea

About 4000 - less than the 6000 the organizers projected.

Interesting that out of that 4000, Malkin claims only 1600 signed the petition.

I guess parties are funner than politics.

This whole "movement" is ironic. The real Boston Tea Party was a pro-protectionism, anti-corporate tax break protest. I'd like to see some reporter get Malkin's take on that.

Well, what about that recent Gallup Poll showing 83% ( or over 80% there about) being against redistribution on handling this economy? Or the calls coming in against the bailout....even in Feinstein's liberal district. The silent majority doesn't always get up off their azzez. They may just wait to vote.

Do you ever get tired of trying to distort things? That's not what your Gallup Poll concluded at all. But keep repeating it and hope you win a couple of converts to the school of kookery who aren't bright enough to look up things for themselves.

The part guaranteeing that rich folk (alternatively aristocrats, plutocrats, or simply 'royalty') forever and again be entitled to their God-given right to bend-over the rest of American society to ensure THEIR liberty, opportunities, and "freedom" to secure the biggest slice of the economic pie that law (law, not ethics or morality) permits.

You mean this part?

...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation
