Illinois democrat says we are “despicable” and “shameful.”  Seeing as how we are “right-wing activists and fueled by Fox.”  Oh, my, we are So Bad.  🙂  And to top that off we have “cheapened an honorable moment” in history.  🙂

What makes me think that if the Founding Fathers were alive today, they would all have been leading the way.

“”Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted “tea party” protests yesterday, labeling the activities “despicable” and “shameful.”

“The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs,” Schakowsky said in a statement.

“It’s despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful political stunt,” she added.””

She goes on to say that that they are “made to look like grassroots uprisings” but are in fact, she says, sponsored by “corporate interests, Republicans, lobbyists, and politicians.”

Huh?  This is a good example of the Lies that are being told.  Flat out lies.

Tax Day Protest in Ocala, Florida

Marion County residents converged on the downtown square from all directions Wednesday. Their signs were as different as their demographics: senior citizens stood next to young adults, housewives and businessmen on lunch break.

But the message spoken, and occasionally yelled, at the United States government during the Ocala Tea Party was the same: stop tax increases and outrageous spending.

Tax Day Protest in Gainesville, Florida

There were some 700 such rallies across America yesterday.  Peaceful protests.  Americans exercising our right to free speech and right to assembly.  And Nancy Pelosi is either so out of touch with what is happening or is just plain lying to say it is some “astroturf” movement financed by the rich in the country.  Just not true. And MSNBC and CNN and their “journalists” just plain think it’s funny.

This all started back during the very first Bailout by the Bush Administration.  At the time we were just individuals out here in our homes mad and outraged about it.  It takes a little time for a real and authentic grassroots movement to take shape and for likeminded Americans to make contact with each other and get this huge statement before the country and the world that happened yesterday.

And of course the Bush Bailout was not the end but only the beginning and it’s just enough already!!

Truth:  The MSM has deliberately failed to cover any of the rallies that preceded this one that have been popping up across the nation since last Fall.  And they are making fun of this one yesterday.

Fox covered the events but they did not start nor organize them.  There would have been no honest coverage if not for Fox.  All that would have been broadcasted would have been the lies of the other networks and politicians like Pelosi who think they know everything and are extremely out of touch.  I honestly feel sorry for anyone who only gets their news from the likes of CNN or MSNBC.  Their coverage of these events yesterday when contrasted to the truth about them should be enough to wake up any fair-minded person.

We are hard-working, law-abiding citizens, mothers, fathers, families, ex-military, parents with children now serving in the military, voters, consumers, the people who keep this country running.

Here are some accounts from others:

See Here, this one in Texas.

And this account below from a friend in Missouri:

“”Today, our city of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, on the outskirts of Kansas City, had a tea party in front of city hall. It was held between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. The weather cooperated beautifully, and I would estimate that 1,000 people attended. It wasn’t a “hate Obama” rally but a more spiritual oriented rally with emphasis on opposition to the gross ( an understatement) amount of money that has been authorized lately by way of the stimulus bill that none of our lawmakers read.

I got a lot of still photos, but they were from my cellphone only, so don’t know how they have turned out yet. There were lots of unique signs. My favorite was :

“Next Time Read The Bill”

It was all positive and inspiring and I sure didn’t feel so alone. I’m sure most everyone there was gaining encouragement from each other.

I wanted to go to the one in Kansas City later this afternoon which will be held at Liberty Memorial and will probably have some national coverage, but because of time, I opted to go to the one in my town, and it was rewarding to see all this at a grassroots level.

I’ve always been proud of my country but had a special excitement and love for it today.

God Bless America!””
