A Bit of Tea Party History - Not Much Has Changed

PPPS (Denver) One of our loyal readers, Citizen Pete, sent us a photograph and a short note, putting the current debt ceiling debate in historical context.

Dear Editor,

 Here is a photo of my first Tea Party sign, which I carried at the April 15, 2009 Tea Party event on the west side of the Colorado State Capitol in Denver.

 In case you can't read it, it says:  

AN EXTREMELY FRIENDLY 
CITIZEN WHO 
THINKS HE HAS A RIGHT TO SPEAK 
AND WHO DECIDED TO WING IT
WITH THIS SIGN PROTESTING  
OUT OF CONTROL  SPENDING

Not a lot has changed since then -- spending is still out-of-control and our leaders are still calling us names. I guess we've graduated from being "right wing extremists" to "terrorists".

Those pathetic politicians can call us what they like, but We Ain't Goin' Away!


Thanks to our friends Bradley Ray and Pamela Gudgeon, and Bruce Bellott  for writing that inspiring song,

God bless you,
Citizen Pete
Littleton, Colorado


Notes to our Readers:  
For nostalgia sake, you can download the April 7, 2009 Homeland Security alert here.
Please support the Gudgeon's band Eagle River Highway and Bruce Bellott. And book them for your Tea Party Event!

TrackBack - Also note that our own correspondent Progressive Pete was the first to connect this subversive and dangerous song and singer Bruce Bellott to the extremist right wing Tea Party Movement in his undercover piece titled The Tea Party Exposed Part 1 -- A Dangerous and Threatening Agenda.
