Stand and Deliver!

July 8th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Recently, I attended a TEA Party (Taxed Enough Already) on Independence Day. It was held at a great venue with a proper PA system and generous seating (unlike the last one). There were vendors and public bathroom facilities and there was even a play area for the kids.  It was a decent evening for The Ham in July and they topped off the event with a short yet acceptable fireworks display.

Interesting items on the evening’s agenda included the introduction of young, up-and-coming political candidates in the local scene. Each were given about ten minutes at the podium to be heard which was balanced out by seasoned speakers, local talk radio hosts and a Baptist Preacher with an opinion (hmmm…imagine that).

One of the highlighted speakers was an author who told us that he was not a “hyphenated man”. He was not an African-American or a Black-American; he was merely an American. He also referred to this time in our lives as the Brown Shorts Era (he craps his pants every time a new stimulus package is announced).

One speaker told us that the USA deserved what it got on September 11, 2001 for meddling in the affairs of the Middle East. As the crowd took to their feet, he followed up by claiming that we Americans wouldn’t like it too much if China or North Korea drove its tanks up and down our community streets. Needless to say, he was boo’d off the stage. (A joker in the crowd confirmed that yes, 9 11 truly was an inside job. OY!)

There were tributes to all veterans past and present, the singing of the National Anthem and God Bless America; we recited the Pledge of Allegiance as well as the Lord’s Prayer. American Flags were waived as organizers spoke of the Fair Tax and the Constitution. For the most part, it was an informational event and the organizers did a fine job pulling together the speakers and keeping the event moving along at a good pace.

I am just sorry to inform the liberal media that there were not any domestic terrorists or right wing extremists among the over 3,000 people in attendance (that’s right, 3,000 not 300).

Power to the people not bigger government!
