The local newspaper is devoting some decent coverage to the Tax Day Tea Party event. Up until a few days ago, the best place to get any information was from websites, blogs and what some deem as “alternative news sources” i.e. Fox, Glen Beck, etc.
It has been noted that there is an attempt to stop this lawfully gathering which is protected in the First Amendment. Some websites have been sabotaged and there is speculation that “plants” will be at many of the events to try and discredit these peaceful gatherings. No, I am not some paranoid, anti-government nut…just telling it like it is.
Some of the locals have complained to the newspaper when a link to this blog was posted. The link offended them. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. We still have personal choices. Not upset with the newspaper for their banning of this website on the forums, more concerned about the people who find freedom of speech offensive. But, that’s another story.
Fortunately, many of us, Democrats, Republicans, Independants and Undecideds, have reach a consensus that both federal and local governments are out of control. We have addressed issues, at least on a local level, with our elected officials and they refuse to listen. In fact, they do the opposite.
Even our Senator Sue Errington commented on how the citizens have no faith in the local government. Give the woman credit, she does listen.
So, to every American who absolutely loves this country, lets work to get our government under control and defend the rights that made this country what it is today. Remember, many lives were taken for us to enjoy what we have today. Many people left the safety of their homes and families to defend it.

I will leave you with a quote:
Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant. Electric light is the most efficient policeman. It has always been my view that when the people of this Nation watch their Government in action, they come to better understand how our governing institutions work and equip themselves to hold those institutions accountable for their deeds. If there are flaws in our governing institutions, including our courts, we hide them only at our own peril.
Justice Louis D. Brandeis, Other People’s Money, 1914
