SML TEA Party Alive and Well

We are - we just took a long break.  We'll be posting information on a mid-October event - likely the same location as before - in the near future.  It will be a TEA Party/GOTV event to begin the process of returning to some semblance fiscal responsibility by ousting our Stimulus/Cap and Trade/ObamaCare supporter Congressman, Tom Perriello.  We cannot afford him for another two years!

TEA Party Express - The 9/12 project

I'm sitting here watching Sean Hannity and the TEA Party Express with Dick Armey, of all people!  I'm so excited about tomorrow and all the buses converging on Washington, especially knowing there are THREE buses going from here!  Hopefully, networks other than Fox will start to report this stuff.  AND, also about things like the resignation of Van Jones . . . the firing of two Baltimore ACORN employees, the "reassignment" of a Whitehouse liaison to the NEA, the firing of two DC ACORN employees.  Amazing, eh?

May God continue to bless America, our Troops and their families.

Spread the Word

We've had notices in the newspapers, we've asked to be posted on some Tea Party web sites and we'll be publicized on WSLK, but we need your help in spreading the word!

A good website for signs - print them out or use their slogans - is

Hope to see you there!

Local Tea Parties

We're postponing our event until September - probably Labor Day - due to so many conflicts scheduled by the organizers, but there are lots more in the area.

TEA Party a Success in SPITE of Weather!

Approximately 250 people came - some in strollers and some using canes - in cold, drizzly (early) weather, walked through mud to get there, but enthusiasm was not lacking. (Oddly enough, none of them looked like right-wing extremists and all looked like the real deal - grass roots - not astro-turf types.) Signs of all types - see below - expressed the frustration of attendees with the way our government's spending has run amok. Anyone with pictures to share, please email to

Our eternal thanks to Floyd Enterprises, Inc., especially Gerry Hachmann, Bill Berry, Joe Byron, Don Winter, Olivia Tarvis, Kathie and Phil Floyd. Many thanks to Grand Furniture for allowing the use of their parking lot and to Lee Arnold (Smith Mountain Yacht Club) for use of a much-less-muddy field than our originally planned one. And thanks to David Fallwell for his contribution of bottled water.

Partial agenda and information is on the right. If you didn't get to hear it all first-hand, please read all the way to the bottom. It's long, but it's a skinny column! ;)

Two great voices - Carmel Vaden and Charles Poindexter - singing "God Bless America" at the end of the Tea Party.
My most humble apologies for being so delinquent in posting the results, but I've been preoccupied with family matters.
