April 15 Tea Party!

Fort Walton Beach has finally joined the ranks of the national Tea Party movement! We are trying to put together a protest event on Wednesday April 15th to coincide with hundreds of other Tea Parties across this great nation. There are some going on Sat April 18th, which may be a better date. I hope you will join us to put together a nice group of folks who are just tired of Washington DC spending all our children’s money on pet projects and vote buying.

If you are unfamiliar with the Tea Party Movement, the Stimulus Package passed by the Congress and President earlier this year generated some unnamed protests. The idea was that by spending $787 Billion now of borrowed money, our kids will very likely have to pay back over $3,000,000,000,000.00 ($3 TRILLION) to pay for all the spending (factoring in spending programs unlikely to be canceled, debt servicing, etc). That amounts to over $30,000 per family in America. Now THAT would have been a Stimulus to people (Can you imagine what your family of 4 could have done with $30,000 in this economy?).

After the U.S. Government passed this unprecedented Spending package they called a “Stimulus,” they decided another “leg of the 3-legged stool” was to pass a bailout housing package (The 3-Legs of the Recovery Plan are Stimulus Package, Housing Bailout, Financial Bailout). Well, the housing plan was to spend $275 Billion MORE to write down bad mortgages and really just reward 7% of real estate buyers who bought more house than they can afford, tried to flip properties for speculation or just don’t feel like paying their bills any more. This plan is rewarding bad behavior while not providing any help to 93% of homeowners who pay their mortgages on time. This plan drew considerable backlash and an interview with Rick Santelli of CNBC coined the phrase “Tea Party” as associated with the backlash against wasteful spending.

Here is the latest wrap up of all the Tea Parties going on right now. Definitely a “grass roots” movement of us people who are just frustrated with the way D.C. works.

If you follow politics at all and just want to release some annoyance with the government, let’s go bring some coolers and beer down to the landing (if we can have alcohol over there) and make up some signs. I bet many others feel this same way!

    This is so beyond Republicans and Democrats–ALL in congress are bums, liars, thieves and dealmakers to line THEIR individual pockets with OUR money! Throw the bums out and take back your government! Liberate from the current 2-party system that lives on lies to get and stay “elected”! I will not vote ANYONE in for a 2nd or lifetime term!

    Sounds as if it will be well attended – will there be any organized program, like speakers or information presenters of specific issues or “talking points”? Just milling around seems non-productive and this has such tremendous potential.

    I made $250K last year, so I’m one of those people that that IDIOT Joe Biden says should feel patriotic about paying more taxes. I agree with being patriotic but not with paying higher taxes for bailouts to keep mismanaged companies afloat.

    The revolution begins, question is are the politicos going to listen.King GeorgeIII, and parliment passed our forefathers off as colonial malcontents and payed not heed to the rumblings across the Atlantic, and they paid in treasure and blood for thier haughty way of treating common people. Does it seem if the Washington miscreants are doing the same thing……….and we VOTED this bunch in. Lets get them out next election and start over.

    What a great day and a wonderful turnout. Thank you for organizing a successful event. The history professor was a beautiful conclusion to the event and an inspiration to make this the start of taking back America by the people.

    The Tea Party was great it was nice to see so many concerned citizens get up and speak. If anyone got good photos of our grand daughter and grandson holding their signs we sure would love to get a copy if you are wondering who we are she was the only little girl to get on stage and speak.

    This message goes out to those who were at the FWB meeting that was held at the Golden Corral on June 9th.

    I want to apologize for my rant at the meeting I just felt that if people would look at more than main sream (NON NEWS) that they would find the TRUTH about what is happening to this country.

    I talked about a few issues that some people seemed to be interested in. I'm not endorsing , approving, or saying that any of this information on this site is factual All I will say is the information that was of interest to me was verifed to be true and has been confirmed from varied sources.

    I warn everyone who visits these sites to view them as a skeptic and the owner of the INFOWARS site encourages everyone to not take his word and to do research and find other sources to back up the claims on INFOWARS. Here is the list of some of the info I shared with you during my rant:

    inforwars.com
    On this site you will find info about
    a. The New World Order
    b. The Obama Deception (Found free on you tube)
    c. The End Games (Found Free on you tube)
    d. Free radio on site dayily and nightly

    I spoke about the book "The Creature From Jekyl Island" you can find a 14 part series on "you tube" at least watch part4

    I also spoke about the H1N1 Virus and how the World Health Organization (WHO) is looking at raising the level to 6 there is a short article on infowars.com or you can go directly to the WHO website.

    If you are interested in the July 4th protest to be held in Washing ton D.C. the one we will be attending is being organized by :
    marchforliberty.org visit the site for more information anyone else planning on going and you want too convoy with us reply to this message and we can figure out how to meet.

    I hope this info gets to the people who asked for this info at that meeting.
