Witch Hunt Will Only Drive More Capital Offshore
Newsmax reports that IRS has had some successes in getting UBS, the Swiss bank, to disclose some of the US account holder information on some of its secret numbered accounts. The number of disclosures is only about 300-400 on a total of almost 50,000 accounts. UBS is properly refusing further disclosures as required under Swiss privacy laws. The first decision that law abiding US citizens | Read More »
Reluctant Schoolmasters: Small Businessmen Will Educate the Elite at the Expense of the Poor
I think those of us who are small businesspeople will avoid taxes, recover and rebuild and even prosper quite nicely. But it is a darned shame that those of us who know how to make money must change hats for the next 2-4 years and act as schoolmasters to the new administration. Immanuel’s remark about ‘not wasting a crisis’ showed such deep cynicism and insensitivity towards | Read More »
Tea Partiers – Spread The Word
It seems the idea of the Tea Party rallies is really catching on (see here, here, here, here, and for some good advice, here). Conservatives and concerned Americans making their voices heard is a great thing. One can only assume there are Redstaters and loyal readers among those who have had it with the government mortgaging our future. An important part of protests and rallies | Read More »
Anatomy of a Left-Wing Smear: The Great Tea Party Conspiracy Busted
Playboy Magazine got its undies in a bundle over the nation wide Tea Party protests held last Friday that were inspired by CNBC’s Rick Santelli’s free market rant of February 19. As Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters.org noted on March 1, the skin mag published a piece claiming that Santelli was part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to protest Obama’s socialist policies. It turns out, however, | Read More »
It’s Time for Some Real Tea Party Protest: A Real iGlobalized eCommerce Tax Revolt
When a band of patriots gathered in Boston Harbor to dump tea overboard, the tax protest was planned to be much, much more than just a visible act of civil disobedience. The Boston tea party was crafted to strike directly at the basic instrument of the government’s well being: the crown’s revenue. This article will present practical suggestions after some discussion below. A hint of | Read More »
A roundup of today’s Tea Parties.
Glenn Reynolds has two very large links (here and here [the latter being the main page; the link's goofed up for some reason]). See also Hot Air, Michelle Malkin, the Repurblican, Gateway Pundit, GayPatriot, Riehl World View, Ace of Spades, and a whole bunch of others for details. The biggest one was in St Louis, with about a thousand on hand; I’m going to guess | Read More »
Tea Party in Nashville, TN a huge success!
In spite of less than a week to plan the event, scant publicity, and a cold, drizzly day, over 500 conservatives promoting fiscal responsibility met on Legislative Plaza in Nashville today at noon. The crowd was estimated to number around 600, with attendees mostly from the Nashville area, but several of us drove over from Knoxville and there was at least one group of people | Read More »

Plan to attend a Tea Party in your area
It’s been a few days since we were energized by Rick Santelli going off on Obama from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Stock Exchange, but there is still an untapped groundswell of discontent and resentment in this country for the policies and agenda that Obama and his administration are bringing down on America. I think that the media missed the boat on its analysis | Read More »
Anyone For a Tax Day Tea Party?
I came across a plan brewing to give our politicians some feedback since they have not found our phonecalls and letters relevant or convincing. On April 15, how about mailing teabags? There was some discussion here that it is not legal to send teabags and so just the labels (or something else) would have to be sent. I don’t see what the problem is with sending teabags but | Read More »
