Louisiana Tea Parties Update
We are 8 days away from National Tax Day Tea Party kickoff!
Michelle Malkin has a word of caution about the sleaze and smear tactics you should be watching for - go read this. She's right, too; I have been confronted and questioned by folks who don't understand the point or purpose of the Tea Party movement and scoff at our purpose. "What, you're protesting taxation without representation?!"
This protest is for anyone who disagrees with the excessive spending and bailouts coming from Washington from both Democrats AND the capitulating Republicans.
In Louisiana there will Tea Parties in Shreveport, Covington, Baton Rouge, Alexandria, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Mandeville, Monroe, Morgan City, and New Orleans. Go here for info on those if you are interested in attending. Here is the Shreveport info. Remember that our locations has changed and will be located at the Bossier Civic Center on Benton Road.
Don't forget to bring signs and canned goods! Make extra signs to share with those that may have forgotten to bring one! There will be a sign-making event in Shreveport at the Glenwood Tea Room on April 9 at 5:30 p.m. and in Bossier on the same date at Jake's Restaurant at 7 p.m. It's a good chance to meet and greet and get some signage done.
Bring cameras too, because you can't count on the left-leaning media to accurately report the event.
