A very easy and effective way to protest....
« on: March 06, 2009, 09:19:51 PM »
Hi,

I received the following email from a friend tonight.  For what it is worth, we have ours ready....and will mail it.  Even if this is bogus, by the time it makes the rounds throughout the country it will take on a life of it's own.

regards,

Subject: A 2009 Tea Party . . . .  .!!!

This was  sent to me from a respected US citizen who has been a State
Representative and Senator. He is disgusted with the current events.  He
receive
this recently and it has been sent throughout the  US.

There's  a storm 'abrewin'. . . . . !!!!  What happens when good,
responsible people keep quiet?  Washington has forgotten they work  for
us.  We don't
work for them.  Throwing good money after bad is  NOT the answer.  I am
sick of
the midnight, closed door sessions to come  up with a plan.  I am sick of
Congress raking CEO's over the coals while  they, themselves, have
defaulted on
their taxes.  I am sick of the bailed  out companies having lavish
vacations and
retreats on my dollar.  I am  sick of being told it is MY responsibility to
rescue people that, knowingly,  bought more house than they could afford.
 I am
sick of being made to  feel it is my patriotic duty to pay MORE taxes.  I,
like all of you, am a  responsible citizen.  I pay my taxes.  I live on a
budget
and I  don't ask someone else to carry the burden for poor decisions I may
make.  I emailed my congressmen and senators asking them to NOT vote  for
the
stimulus package as it was written without reading it first.  No  one
listened.
 They voted for it, pork and all.

O.K.  folks, here it is.  You may think you are just one voice and what you
think won't make a difference.  Well, yes it will and YES, WE  CAN!!   If
you
are disgusted and angry with the way Washington is  handling our taxes.  If
you are fearful of the fallout from the wreckless  spending of BILLIONS to
bailout and "stimulate" without accountability  and responsibility then
we need to
become ONE, LOUD VOICE THAT CAN BE HEARD  FROM EVERY CITY, TOWN, SUBURB AND
HOME IN AMERICA.   There is a  growing protest to demand that Congress, the
President and his cabinet LISTEN  to us, the American Citizens.  What is
being
done in Washington is NOT  the way to handle the economic free fall..


So,  here's the plan.  On April 1, 2009, all Ameicans are asked to send a
TEABAG to  Washinton , D.C.   You do not have to enclose a note or any other
information unless you so desire.  Just a TEABAG.    Many cities are
organizing
protests.  If you simply search, "New American  Tea Party", several sites
will
come up.  If you aren't the 'protester'  type, simply make your one voice
heard with a TEABAG.   Your one voice will become a roar when joined with
millions of others that  feel the same way.  Yes, something needs to be
done but the
lack of  confidence as shown by the steady decline in the stock market
speaks
volumes.

This  was not my idea.  I visited the sites of the 'New American Tea Pary'
and  an online survey showed over 90% of thousands said they would  send the
teabag on April 1.  Why, April 1??  We want them to reach  Washington by
April
15.   Will you do it?  I  will.       Send it to;     1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington , D.C. 20500  ...

Forward  this to everyone in your address book.  Visit the website below for
more  information about the 'New American Tea Party'.  I would encourage
everyone to go ahead and get the envelope ready to mail, then just drop
it in  the
mail April 1.  Can't guarantee what the postage will be by then, it  is
going
up as we speak, but have your envelope ready.  What will this  cost you?  A
little time and a 42 or 44 cent stamp.

What  could you receive in benefits?  Maybe, just maybe, our elected
officials  will start to listen to the people.  Take out the Pork.  Tell
us how  the
money is being spent.  We want TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY. 
Remember, the
money will be spent over the next 4-5 years.  It is not too  late.



P.S.  Dont' forget to send your teabag to:     1600  Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington , D.C. 20500.

You don't  have to put a note in it, unless you want to.  It makes its own
statement!
