Tea Party Anti Tax Parties and Rallies are tomorrow....How to Spy on Idiots...
Tomorrow many Tax Day Tea Party Rallies are planned. Many Non Confrontational ANTI -TeaParty Rallies and Coffee Party gatherings are planned as well. Here in Ohio Hannity is planning his Big Party in the Southern part of the State. Here in Cleveland, there are some problems with the Tea Party Rally that is planned for the Mall downtown on Mall C. They have not paid their Permit fee and all of the different blogs have different TIMES listed. Some say Noon, Some say 4-6PM and some say 6:30PM. ( I personally am not correcting them or linking to them, I am going to sit back and enjoy their muddled mess, I will post photos and video from Ohio's events). Many of the bigger blogs and Internet newspapers are encouraging people to go and take videos and photos and report what they see. I encourage people to do that with care, as some of them are gun toting, less than rational and ginned up on Foxifed anger and hate. ( Treat it like a spy mission, dress either low key or wear Flag gear so you blend in. I also recommend parking far away if your car is plastered with Obama stickers...which mine is). Just quietly photograph signs and video the Rhetoric, because personally we all know that we are bearing witness to a dangerous time in our history. Many of them maybe be ignorant, but their Anger has been fueled by heated up rhetoric and Hatemongering from FOX.
I also encourage you to read this great post " by William Rivers Pitt called "Tea on the Common" for Truthout. It's insightful and puts all of this in perspective.
A Little Humor about Tomorrow's Events....
So I go to the local Copy Center to make copies of my Tax Stuff. I am set up in my corner with my machine and my paperwork and my envelopes and my paperclips etc. And I am making my copies ( because people that are compulsive have to make multiple copies). And in comes this elderly man in his late 70's, and he wanted to make copies. For some reason his machine was not working right. So he asked if he could use mine. I said when I was done. I looked over he was making invites for the Cleveland Tea Party Rally. I looked at the poorly drawn snake ( who looked like a RoadKill Worm Who had been Treaded Upon...) but the rally was announced to be at 2PM. I thought about that as I drove home and sure enough there are Rallies planned at MALL C in Cleveland, but when I looked it up I had to laugh that All the Tea Party Sites here had Different Times.
