VA Tea Party

VA Tea Party

PostBy: lowfog01 On: Fri Jan 15, 2010 9:38 pm

Be sure and stop by the VA Tea party on Jan 18th in Richmond; PM me for my cell number so I can provide more information and so that we can meet up. :D The rally starts at 10 on the state capital grounds but parking is further away with a shuttle bus provided. The rally should be interesting with several state delegates and the newly sworn in State Attorney General and personal friend - Ken Cuccunelli - speaking. (Shameless name dropping but it's a name you are sure to hear again :D)

Things should be interesting at home, too. This is the first weekend I have left my 15 year old and the 19 year old at home with the responsibility of running the coal stove. :D I don't expect them to have to do much because of the heat wave but they will have to shake, empty the ash pan and refill the stove at least once. I'll have it set up for idle - that shouldn't change - but... well, everyone knows Murphy’s Law. I suppose I should check and see if the whole house natural gas furnace still works just in case. :D

Hopefully Tea Party founder Dale Robertson has brushed up on his spelling skills:

TVB - You really should be more careful about finding fault with others. It's sure to come back and bite you - hard - down the line. Perhaps you'd like to edit your posting and add something constructive to the conversation; if you can't find anything constructive to say then how about following your mom's advice and saying nothing. Just something you may want to think about. Lisa

Perhaps you'd like to edit your posting and add something constructive to the conversation;


Perhaps you would like something constructive on the irony of an overtly racist organization having their little gathering on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day? Or a constructive comments on how absurd it was of the Virginia legislature to make January 15th, Lee-Jackson-King Day, a travesty that lasted from 1983 until 2000? Or the absurdity that once they realized how incongruous it was to celebrate the confederacy on the same day as a civil rights hero? Or how bizarre it is that Virginia still celebrates a war they lost nearly 150 years ago?

Really, TVB don't you get tired of showing your ignorance. I find it totally bizarre that you would accuse an entire section of the American populace of being part of "an overtly racist organization having their little gathering on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?" What world do you live in? You should really expand your life experiences before you speak out on something you know nothing about but allow me to point out the obvious - the date was chosen because it is a National Holiday and a lot of people have the day off. There is nothing racist about it and you know it. So what’s your real motive behind your posting? Again, what was constructive about it? You seem to be looking for a way to be destructive instead adding to an educated conversation.

I don't know how long you lived in VA or what part you lived in but I grew up in Atlanta. I am old enough to remember the ’68 riots. I have also spent virtually my entire adult life in VA. Funny, the only place I've ever experienced overt racism is the 4 years I spent living and working in Bayonne, NJ in the early 80s and on a horrible TDY trip I had to Boston in 1993. It was on that trip that I was refused service – first time ever or since - at a restaurant because I was accompanied by another Army officer who happened to be black. At least in Bayonne, we only got dirty looks when we went out to lunch. Oh by the way, I'm sure that there will be individuals who are black and other minorities at the Tea Party on Monday but that's not what the mainstream media will want you to know so they won't report that and since your don’t want to believe that’s possible you won’t bother to find the truth for yourself; mores the shame. What a waste, Lisa

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Was A Republican

During the civil rights era of the 1960's, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought to stop Democrats from denying civil rights to blacks. It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican as has been affirmed by his niece, Dr. Alveda C. King.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would not have joined the Democratic Party, the party of the Ku Klux Klan and segregation.

Dr. King fought against Democrat Public Safety Commissioner Eugene "Bull" Connor in Birmingham who let loose vicious dogs and turned skin-burning fire hoses on black civil rights demonstrators.

Democrat Georgia Governor Lester Maddox famously brandished ax handles to prevent blacks from patronizing his restaurant. Democrat Alabama Governor George Wallace blocked the entrance of two black students at the University of Alabama in 1963 and thundered, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever”. All of these racist Democrats remained Democrats until the day they died. In fact, racist Democrats declared that they would rather vote for a “yellow dog” than a Republican because the Republican Party was know as the party for blacks.

Bad spelling hurts credibility, no getting around that. Using juxtaposition of racial slurs to make a point is touchy at best.
Gets your attention, but the assumption is everyone will get it. Ahhhh, not everyone will get it....in which case an ass has been made
of you and me and a point lost in the fall out. :oops:
So, at these tea parties, does any one actually dump crates of tea into a harbor? Just curious as to how far the metaphor is
taken. As far as political rallies go, it seems to be a format that is becoming more and more popular.
