Be there...

or be out of luck when they cut benefits to the disabled.

All people

affected by the radical tea bagger agenda should show up. Look what they did in Wisconsin. And Egypt. Idaho is ready for democracy.

Wisconsin

So far, all that's happened in Wisconsin is a huge protest. All the Democrat and two of the Republican Senator took off, instead of coming to work. With the number of schools shut down because the teachers went to the protest there were a huge number of parents who either had to take a day off from THEIR work, or pay for daycare for at least the past two days. That's pretty selfish of the teachers- they could have arranged for some to go protest, but leave enough teachers to make sure the classrooms were staffed.

A protest...

is designed to get someone's attention. I think it worked!

By the way it's gonna snow so don't wear shorts and have...

to use Medicaid or wreck.

Don't make only 50 TEA folks look like they are gaining steam from the last rally.
