Louisiana has already had it's first 'Tea Party' anti-stimulus protest in Lafayette, Louisiana, the other day, and it seems others are planned for 15 April, in Shreveport / Bossier City and Baton Rouge. See the websites for more information, times, places, etc.
Dear readers, and especially my Louisiana readers, I cannot implore you enough - if you believe the massive spending and the uber-Leftward track of Obama/Pelosi/Reed are wrong for our country, you need to show up at a protest.
If there is a protest in your state, take the day off and attend. Drive hours if you have to. Bring family and friends. Numbers matter, and the current powers that be know it. 10 people is not news. Or 20 or 30. If 1,000 people show up - or 10,000 - well friends, that's news. The Left thinks they know how this game is played, and they are banking on you not showing up (you never have before). If you don't, they will say that a few flag-waving die-hard Limbaugh zombies doesn't prove anything. But if you, and thousands like you, are mad enough to take time off from (private-sector) work or from school to let them know where you stand, well, they got a problem even James Carville can't spin away.
Protests like these are now happening all over the country, so the gatherings in Louisiana will not be an isolated event. Show others what you think. And show those who think similarly that they are not alone. There is strength in numbers, dear readers, and it is high time the silent, productive majority in this nation flex it's strength and be heard.
UPDATE: My friend Greta Perry will be talking about the Tea Party movement on her radio show this Saturday (14 March) on AM 690 WIST in New Orleans. Greta is on from 9-10 AM and would enjoy some calls: 888-880-WIST or (504)260-0690.
