Cincinnati Tea Party: Fountain Square on March 15, 2009

Cincinnati Tea Party - March 15, 2009 3:00pm
Fountain Square Cincinnati
(Update: pictures):
Most of us do things the right way. We go to school, get a job, work hard, raise a family, build a home. Our govenment takes an ever increasing share of the money we earned, and wastes it on every pet project under the sun. The "stimulus" bill and the mortgage bailout are the final straw. Those of us that got the 30-year fixed mortgage don't want to prop up the ones that bought a home two times what they could afford with an interest only loan. We also don't want to prop up the speculators that drove up the cost of housing by flipping homes and who are now under water. Those people made bad decisions and they deserve to suffer the consequences.

Why Protest?

Because the left wing has proven that it works. The problem is that most of us have jobs. We're not on welfare, nor are we the idle rich. We picked March 15th specifically to make it something accessible to those who can't come during the week. We also picked late afternoon so we have fewer conflicts with church. Even so, we know it's a hardship to take time out of your busy schedule to wave signs and shout slogans. Unfortunately, our government is now adding debt to pay for things such as $400,000 to train teachers how to deal with bullies. $200,000 for tattoo removal. $2,000,000 to study grape genetics. Taxes will go up to pay for this. If we stay on the same path, we'll look up and find that the lives we worked so hard to build are gone.

Please join us on March 15, 2009 and make your voice heard. Protests are being held across the country. You are not alone with your frustration. Please go here and confirm your attendance. It's very important that we know you're coming so we can pressure the media into covering us!

Sorry I was unable to attend, but you're on the right track. These people are lawyers, politicians, and professional thieves. Once they've got the loot, just try getting it back. Their vision for America goes way beyond anything yet seen or imagined:

while the size of the rally was impressive this afternoon, where was this protest four years ago? or 8 years ago? it's not like this hasn't been going on regardless of who's in the white house. take a look at who sponsored the amendments and ask yourself who's to blame. honestly, the message of these "tea parties" is far off the mark and misguided. and some of the signs i saw today were extremely offensive and did a lot of damage to the general credibility of the group's message and organizers.
