Western Wis. Tea Parties On April 15

Here's a couple of Tea Parties scheduled for April 15 in western Wisconsin. Apparently these are non-partisan events where everybody can bitch about their taxes with the fear of getting a spit shower from your local anti-government, reactionary objectivist. I'm going to try and make both of them. I want to be there for the riots that are sure to take place.

North Hudson at Mud-And-Suds from 4-6 PM

Ah..sheeple. Following blindly in whatever direction the Faux News Channel wants to take them. I certainly hope they are all willing to return any tax cuts they will be receiving and avoid any new construction or civic improvements that result from the stimulus package. It would be sad to find that they are not remaining true to their values. Oh wait, it's already too late!

Gosh, I'm starting to think that dissent isn't the highest form of patriotism...especially when a Democrat is in the White House and Democrats control both houses of Congress.

As for the idea that we "sheeple" should be more appreciative of the "new construction and civic improvements" that we are ultimately paying for, well, I guess we just have to better wrap our minds around that idea that all spending is stimulus. And just not think about the vast expansion of government and multi-trillion dollar deficits that will follow in its wake.

I keep thinking about that line from The Forgotten Man: "Hoover's policies created the Depression; Roosevelt's policies made it Great." Are we making this recession great? Why not - no reason to waste this crisis.

But more tho the point, why does the left get so exercised about public demonstrations of Conservative values? I'm starting to believe Liberals think political Activism out-of-bounds for Conservatives. Can't Conservatives protest in peace?

Remember, my Liberal friends, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

RK: I'm for all types of protest and that is why I posted this information. If given the chance, I like to poke a little sarcastic fun at either side of the political spectrum. I'm all for lower taxes and hope to attend the North Hudson rally tomorrow.

Of course, the question around "lower taxes" is where does the lowering take place. I'm also for "fair taxes" and "reasonable taxes" and "progressive taxes." I might even be for "flat taxes," if somebody could tell me what the rate would be for everybody to run a positive balance on the budget that slowly pays down the national debt.

From my outpost, I see flocks of sheeple on the left and the right. They tend to kickup lots of dust and bleet loudly. Then there are the sheeple in the middle that just lay there and take it.

Are you attending any Tea Parties tomorrow?

I'm going to try and get to the Hudson event -- just to see what's going on.

I don't expect to hear any modern-day Tom Paine or Sam Adams-type firebrands, but I am curious to see what level of interest and passion is present at a small-town Tax Day Tea Party.
