Anyone for a tea party?

Are you among the many who didn’t realize “change” and “hope” meant your national government’s already profligate spending was going to skyrocket, conveniently funding (err, “stimulating”) all sorts of Democratic pork projects, interest groups, and pet priorities?

If so, then you might want to join Houston’s version of the Tea Party protests that have sprung up around the country. Here are the details, courtesy of the Houston group’s facebook page:

Date: Friday, February 27, 2009
Time: 11:00am – 2:00pm
Location: Fondren Green at Discovery Green Park!!! Right in front of Amphitheatre!!

[snip]

Meet in Downtown Houston to protest the stimulus!

FONDREN LAWN AT DISCOVERY GREEN!
11 am brown bag tea party and ROUND UP!

Wear your GO TEXAN gear and bring your tea!

NO TAXATION WITHOUT DELIBERATION!!!

REPEAL ALL IRRESPONSIBLE SPENDING OR WE’LL RETIRE YOU!!!

[snip]

Few simple rules, :

NO: breaking the law (e.g., loitering, vandalism)
NO: violence (physical or verbal)
NO: Offensive displays or messages

JUST: good cheer & a positive sense of public engagement & a smile & the message that our ideas work better!

It looks to be a beautiful day, so if you can actually shake free from your jobs (you know, the productive endeavor that funds the beast), this might be a worthwhile way to get a little sun and express your opinion.
