Alabama Tea Party plans

As some of you may have noticed in the sidebar, plans are being sketched in for the Alabama Tea Party, part of the big April 15 nationwide event. This is my trip to Alabama I first mentioned a few days ago, and for which I'm now trying to raise money. (Thanks to everyone who's hit the tip jar so far.)

In telephone discussions with one of the organizers, I get the idea that a whole series of events is planned April 15-19. Huntsville, Birmingham and Montgomery have been mentioned. Also, there is an event in Atlanta that I'll be attending during that week. So get in touch and mark your calenders. And if you don't want to hit the tip jar (although you should), you can at least buy a T-shirt with this design:

The slogan on the design (incorporating the Alabama state flag) is something I've been saying about Ordinary Americans, that what America needs most now is the common sense of common people. Click on the logo to purchase the shirts. Proceeds from sales go to help your favorite greedy capitalist blogger. WOLVERINES!


  1. So much for inviting you to the Richmond VA tea party :)

  2. Along the lines of the Tea Party - what about earmarks -

    Why not kill them from the inside - come up with some insidious earmarks that could be inserted not as "poison pills" but to poke them in the eye - say so long as chucky boy Shumer thinks the "chattering class" is riled about tiny "porky" amendments - have every GOP representative put in a $500K earmark for the National Right to Life foundation within their district....maybe have every red state Senator put in a $5M earmark for the NRA within their district....just to piss them off!!!

  3. It might be a good idea to ditch the stars and bars-like emblems, even if they are based on a state flag. Bad PR.

    Just saying is all.

  4. When will you be in Atlanta?
