Anyone Up For A Protest?

There's a lot going on, and I think now is a good time to remind a few people that the Tea Party era of truth, responsibility, and accountability is not going to go away. Yesterday at the inaugural meeting of the Tucson chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America (nothing says grassroots like an organization founded by politicians,) National Advisory board Raul Grijalva spoke to the gathering.

"Insisting that a majority of Americans support progressive values, Grijalva predicted the new crop of conservatives will overreach. "The euphoria of the tea party is short-lived," he said to applause."

It appears that Mr. Grijalva needs a reminder of what the majority of Americans support and voted for in 2010.

In response, I propose that we convene a meeting in order to relay a "civil" response to Mr. Grijalva's foolishness and provide a counter response to some of the other issues embarrassing good Tucsonans.

In a further show of goodwill and civility, we propose that we hold our gathering at the corner of Speedway and Tucson Blvd. That way Grijalva's paid supporters can just walk over from the SEIU building rather than having to fire up the big gas-guzzling buses in order to counter-protest (gas is expensive nowadays. . .)

Event: Inaugural meeting of the Tucson Tea Party Institute for Truthful, Open, Civil but Firm Discourse wherein we promise to be kind and loving to all creatures; Oh, and pick up our trash afterwards....

Time: This Friday, February 25th from 4:00pm to 6:30pm

Place: the corner of Speedway and Tucson

Himmel Park is nearby, so there should be ample parking in that area.  Be sure not to tie up business parking.

The inaugural meeting of the Tucson chapter of the Progressive Democrats of America had about 300, which I believe we can eclipse on three days notice.  Because we also want to demonstrate to Mr. Grijalva that real grassroots organizations don't preprint their signs, we want to be sure that we publicize any sign making parties that anyone wants to hold.  Let us know, and we will share the information.  We would ask, however, that you don't publicize such meetings at your home residence because in the new age of "civility," protesting at peoples homes is acceptable for Progressives.

We also want to stress that this event is open to all organizations that have an interest in balancing the political exploitation that we are bombarded with daily here in Tucson.  We will get the ball in motion, anyone interested is encouraged to join us.

We want everyone to show up, be smart, and continue to demonstrate the grace and power that has characterized all of your actions for the past two years.  Mr. Grijalva opened the door.  Let's demonstrate just how many people were knocking. . .

    Before the August recess of Congress, the American people can aid jobless citizens, legal permanent aliens by insisting that The Legal Workforce Act, H.R. 2164 be brought to the House floor for a vote. Time is of the essence and Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith has an answer, to produce millions of jobs quickly and efficiently requiring the use of E-Verify nationwide that would free up jobs currently held by illegal aliens. This is a chance to help your fellow unemployed countryman by Calling House Leadership NOW Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for the "Speaker of the House's office" or the "House Majority Leader's office. This is a very distasteful situation but birthright and legal individuals have a right to be employed over foreign cheap labor. You can also call the direct lines by dialing:

    * House Speaker John Boehner -- 202-225-0600
    * House Majority Leader Eric Cantor -- 202-225-4000

    America has been silently invaded and we are heading towards a future of overpopulation. We do not have the financial resources anymore and taking money from US taxpayers to pay for illegal alien’s welfare, emergency hospital visits and more throughout America is wrong. In all the discussions about cutting back on the US treasury deficits, both parties are refusing to consider in these opposed debates, the fact that illegal aliens are compounding this major issue; the dollar amount to the $14.5 Trillion dollars, in this depressed meltdown we are facing. The Department of Homeland Security estimated in 2003, that 8 million to 12 million illegal aliens had settled in America and 700,000 new people enter illegally and stay each year, with 8 million plus taking jobs from low income, middle class workers. This is about illegal immigration? An immigrant is not illegal and people need to be enlightened. E-Verify will reduce Sanctuary Cities and States policies, counter react The Dream Act and place on iron fist of another fraudulent Amnesty being enacted. Highly skilled Professional workers are always welcome, not indigent ECONOMIC illegal aliens who are driving this country, into a third world condition. We cannot accommodate any longer those who come here to steal welfare and public services from valid Americans. It is estimated that illegal aliens send home by wire transfer around $40 billion dollars annually, which should be going into state treasuries. Join the TEA PARTY; join the people of Black, White, Hispanic and every race and backgrounds who believe in the "Rule of Law."
