Properly Celebrating Tax Day 2010


The above image is, Don's Favorite Sign

Today's song is A Walk On The Wild Side by Lou Reed, released in 1971.

On Thursday, April 15, 2010, I attended my second Tax Day Tea Party Rally to protest some of the actions of my government representatives. I wrote some of my thoughts about it on my previous home page, April 12, 2010. Yesterday's rally was held at the U.S. Post Office located in Escondido, California. I was told by the organizer of that event it was one of many in San Diego County that day.

I read on the Tea Party Patriots website that there were at least 775 similar Tax Day Tea Party events scheduled around the nation. I'm proud I did my part as one of the many Americans who are now empowered, looking forward to the November 2010 mid-term elections to replace those representatives that did not listen to, We The People.

Some additional observations:

Police estimates put the crowd number at about 1,000 people.

I didn't see any signs or overhear anything about Sarah Palin.

Nobody there was foaming at the mouth or yelling unpleasant comments.

I witnessed very friendly people, courteous people. If the focus wasn't political in nature, one might think they were at a ball game.

I can't say that all rallies of the cause were like this one. My assumption is most were because the vast majority of Americans can disagree without losing control.

I think it supports a view I hold of how the media tries to manipulate their viewers depending on the network's bias. I guess too many Americana fall into that trap.

Someday it may be different. It is my personal opinion that as long as the extreme fringes of the majority parties control their respective parties, the media of the same bias will continue to manipulate accordingly.

Here's a couple news links about the San Diego County Tax Day Tea Party events:

I remain an Independent Centrist, not a member proper of the Tea Party. I did vote for the Contract for America and would like to see Independents replace party-line elected officials to keep middle America strong. Until that happens, this nation's policies will vacillate between the extremes of the Dems and GOP, depending on which party holds the majority. Only a sufficient number of Independents in the mix will force middle of the road policies for the United States of America. As American citizens it's up to us to decide how we wish to be governed. Choose wisely!
