You're Invited

I'd like to invite you to a tea party...






No, silly! Not THAT kind of tea party!


THIS kind of tea party...



I've reassured my 8-year old that she won't really have to drink any tea. She was very relieved although quite disappointed that there won't be any cookies either. I'm also fairly certain there won't be any 18th century ships either. And I'm pretty sure we won't really be dumping crates of tea into the river.

What we WILL be doing is protesting out-of-control government spending. The main stream media would have you believe that tomorrow's Tax Day Tea Parties, which are being held all over the country, are simply about taxes. They argue that the tax rates now are the same as they were under Ronald Reagan. While that may be true right now, how do you suppose we are going to pay for all this outrageous spending that Washington is doing right now? Or rather, how do you suppose our children will pay for this outrageous spending? Yep. That's right. Higher taxes. Stifling, oppressive taxes. Our current spending amounts to fiscal child abuse!

So if you're going to be in the Little Rock area tomorrow afternoon come join my family from 3:45 pm - 6:00 pm at the Capitol.

We'll party like it's 1773!

Update to add: We will also be collecting canned goods and non-perishable items for the Arkansas FoodBank Network.

TOP TEN ITEMS NEEDED:

Canned meats/fish/poultry
Canned/Packaged Meals
Peanut Butter
Cereal
Soups
Canned Vegetables
Canned Fruits
100% Juices
Pasta and Pasta Sauces
Diapers

Lisa, Lisa. My smart friend. And politically active friend. And friend who actually knows about Tax Tea Parties.

Huh. And I was thinking that I was going to get to wear my favorite bonnet and hold my pinkie in the air. How disappointing.

Have fun!!! I'm so proud of you!! :)

One of my friend's here was telling me about this last week. She's going to the one in Co Springs. When she was telling me about it, I KNEW it was something you'd be involved in. I'm proud of you, girl.
