Yesterday I went to a Tea Party in Virginia Beach. This was just one of many Tea Parties being held across the nation on tax day. The Tea Parties are a grassroots response to the recent bailouts, stimulus packages and ruinous government spending that is saddling the next generations with an enormous debt. They are also a response to ever increasing taxes and politicians who no longer listen to the wishes of the citizens who voted for them.
The turnout was much larger than anticipated and much larger than was reported by the mainstream media, who did their best to ignore the parties. In fact the party was held directly across from TV station WTKR who did not bother to cover the story of 2000 people gathering to protest against big government. Everyone had a lot of fun and there were many funny signs and costumes in evidence. I took several photos and videos which I have already published to Flickr and YouTube.
In other news, I am writing this post on my new Dell Mini 9 netbook computer. The Dell allows me to surf the web from anywhere in the house, which is really great. I am writing this right now from the living room. I also went shooting with my brother Jon down in NC again. This time I took my Glock, my Mossberg shotgun and my new DPMS M4 carbine with me. Didn’t shoot as much as I wanted to because ammunition is becoming both expensive and scarce thanks to Obama and an administration that has no respect for the Constitution.
That’s it for now.

I was the last speaker at this TEA party. I wore a suit with a tricord hat. Thank you for coming out.
We have another TEA party planned for Friday evening, June 26th – at the Chesapeake City Park.
The theme for this TEA party is “Defend & Declare” – as it relates to our Constitution.
I missed your speech as I left a little early. I am actively involved in the June 26 Tea Party. I bought one of the porta-potties that were used in the Don’t Flush Us publicity stunt. I plan on attending the Tea Party in Chesapeake. Hope to meet you there.
