Tea Time? Just Two Weeks Away!
Make plans now to attend one of the largest tax day tea parties in the nation on April 15, 2010 at Community America Ballpark (home of the KC T-Bones). Let YOUR voice be heard! Bring your signs, bring your family, bring your friends! The event will be educational, inspiring, therapeutic, and most of all, PATRIOTIC!!! We have several dynamic speakers, a special tribute to the Vets, live music, a soap box, and a series of public town halls, for those who wish to learn more about the candidates running in several key elections in Kansas and Missouri. The real featured stars of the Tea Party will be YOU:
The gates are open at 3:00 pm to the general public. The Live Music & Soap Box will be in high gear on the 1st base side of the ballpark beginning at 3:30 pm. The series of Public townhalls will also commence at precisely 3:30 pm on the 3rd base side of the stadium. At 6:00 pm, all eyes will focus on the Main event at 2nd base! Admission is FREE! If you want to make a contribution at the gate, that would be most appreciated but NOT required! A contribution of $20 or more will allow you to receive our awesome Tax Day Tea Party T-shirt! There are two styles. Both styles are produced with a patent pending ink and a unique process whereby the shirts “pop” during the day but come “alive” at night! Supplies will be limited on the day of the event but you may pre-order them by clicking here! **Note: The classic “Don’t Tread On Me” snake has been reconfigured using 13 stripes and 50 stars. This may come in handy in the event you may end up being President someday and forget how many states there are………………..We have two designs to choose from:
All like-minded grassroots organizations are encouraged to participate at this year’s tea party event. Please note that the facility agreement with the ballpark is fairly flexible regarding items allowed to be sold with the exception that you may not sell any beverage or food item. All vendors / exhibitors must operate within the defined space allocated to them by the organizers. Thus, you may collect donations, pass out information, collect signatures for a petition, register voters, etc. etc. To register for a table and license to particiapte, click here! This IS a ballpark! If you are interested in reserving a hospitality suite for your own personal organizational meeting, campaign, family, friends, clients, etc.., we suggest you gobble up one of the remaining units before it is too late!

Anarchists plan to disrupt tea parties this April 15th:
Via the Jawa Report:
From Anarchist’ R Us:
On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers.[…]1. Organize counter-protests against the tea party demonstrations, same time, same place. This is probably the best option. We need to get in the streets on April 15th and show the tea party movement that there are lots of people out there who oppose their agenda.
2. Get individual tea party protesters to leave the right-wing and move to the left politically.[lol] That would involve passing out stuff like this at the tea party demonstrations: http://www.anarchist-studies.org/node/299
3. Ignore the tea party movement. This is the worst option because without anyone opposing them they could easily gain power.
