American Tea Party

Kansas City: 200+ Marching in the Snow

More than 200 hearty patriots marched through driving snow and 20 degree temps in Kansas City today as part of the ongoing Tea Party Protest.

Congratulations to the organizers and demonstrators.  You’re simple act of rebellion against Obama’s socialist power-grab is a noble statement of your intent to preserve and defend our Republic.


Snow wont stop the patriots in Kansas City.
Snow won't stop the patriots in Kansas City.



I will post photos as soon as they are uploaded.

One Commnet on “Kansas City: 200+ Marching in the Snow

  1. CONGRATS ON THE T-party. And NOW;
    A Call to Action by Average Man 2/17/09
    “Im mad as hell and Im not gonna take it anymore” This chilling yell from the movie Network was screamed from window after window by citizens fed up with a government feeding them crap sandwiches. A government boldly flaunting its arrogance and incompetence .That cry is as appropriate a display today as it was years ago in the movies. But it is not enough.
    We have a President who promised transparency , change and hope just a few weeks ago, now preaching fear while increasing troop levels in Afghanistan and backpedalling on his promise to withdraw in 16 months from Iraq. He tells us that the largest spending stimulus in history must be passed immediately with no time to even read the thing. Not exactly “transparent”.
    Just over a year ago, when the economic meltdown was becoming obvious, our Senate was holding public hearings…on steroid use in baseball. Now, amidst the most serious world economic meltdown in living history, there is serious talk from the government about Compulsory Civilian Service for our youth (a.k.a involuntary servitude without a declaration of war). I wonder what color will be their shirts.
    Guns are flying off the shelves like hotcakes because the citizenry sees an assault on the constitution. New York’s new senator supports the 2nd amendment since she went “hunting” as a child, but at last read, the word hunting did not appear in amendment 2 ; And a concerted effort is underway to reinstate the ”Fairness Doctrine” a most blatant and “in your face” assault on the 1st amendment if there ever was one. Limiting free speech in America! Who knew! Our soldiers have fought and died to give you and you and you the right to voice your opinion freely ; no matter how imbecilic it may be.
    And so there is a movement to clarify the 10th amendment in over 20 state legislatures. That’s the one that gives the States all powers not specifically granted to the federal government or prohibited by the Constitution . The States legislatures are wary of an over reaching central government, just as they were soon after 1776. They had no idea what was coming in the first decade of the 21st century!
    With a one party government ; and I do not mean the Democrats controlling all 3 branches, I mean all of government being controlled by politicians and bankers and lobbyists. Well maybe big media is in power too, from Fox to MSNBC and the print media that all provide just what it is they want us to know when they want us to know it. Oh, there is just enough difference between them to keep us busy while the men behind the curtain put the final nails in our country’s coffin. Riots in Europe, bankrupt countries like Iceland…shhh…don’t tell the people of America…they might get ideas…BTW: how’s our Bunker construction going? What was that Sen Reid said about the “smell” of constituents?
    The party makes little difference, that is a false dichotomy, a red herring to keep us focused while the real action is taking place in secrect; behind closed doors.The people have no say at all. Five hundred to one were the calls to many Congressmen at the end of the last administration saying “don’t bailout the banks”, we know how much influence that futile effort had on political decision making. After all, these pols don’t worry about re election anymore, not in any big way, the Senate is filled with Legacies. You know , father to son Senate seats, Senator dies, wife gets seat, Senator becomes VP, seat is held open for son to come back from war. Senator becomes Sec’y of State, Unelected Governor appoints new Senator. Give me a break; this is not America! You will be shocked when you look that up.
    I truly believe that the Government is taking Rahm Emanuels advice, to let no crisis become a missed opportunity, or some such tyrannical thing. BUT I THINK THEY ARE MOVING ON THE PEOPLE TOO SOON.
    We WILL be awakened. WAKE UP you people; no one is as blind as one who does not see.
    This is a CALL TO ACTION:
    Go to the kitchen and get pots and pans and go outside . Tonight. Right At midnight . Tonight. And every night.
    Go to your car, your truck,. GO TONIGHT Go Every night. Go get your noisemaker, go to your yard, tonight . Right At Midnight. Tonight and every night at Midnight. BANG YOUR POTS AND PANS. BLOW YOUR DAMN HORN, MAKE SOME DAMN NOISE.
    Let everyone know that you are mad as hell and will not take it for long.
