Find a Tea Party Near You
April 15th is almost upon us and the "Tea Parties" that started out slow and small seem to be really growing yet the MSM has a paltry 56 stories--not only are people gathering to protest the current spending by our government, there is also a an alternative movement that is mailing a single tea bag to Barack Obama.

If you want to find a "Tea Party" in your area you can Go Here and find your city...or you can try Free Republic (which is always a great source for anything like that). Many of the cities even have facebook pages.
Philadelphia's Tea Party will have speakers: Dom Giordano (Conservative talk show host) , Scott Rutter (Decorated veteran and Townhall.com columnist) and Scott Wheeler (Executive Director,The National Republican Trust PAC (GOPtrust.com), columnist at Newsmax.com) among others.
For the creative among us... I found this costume (with directions how to make it) that would be great if you were okay with using your kids as cute props (which I have no problem with --you made them, right?! :)
