"Tea Party" protest at the Cowtown Bar And Grill in Fort Worth ! ! !

To: Fort Worth residents who have been paying attention
From: Me

Tired of giving your money to people who couldn't pay an $800,000 mortgage on a $25,000 salary?
Tired of watching your dollars buy less and less because The Fed is printing too many of them?
Tired of the current Billions For Bankers Bailout?
Boy, do I have the event for you ! ! !

This is from Craigslist.

"TEA PARTY '09."

Let "the man" know that you're mad, and you're not going to take it anymore!! Bring your protest signs and indignant taxpayer attitude with you to the rally at the outside stage at The Cowtown Bar & Grill on Friday, the 27th of February, from 3pm to 7pm, located at 7108 Camp Bowie Blvd, Fort Worth, TX 76116 (817) 570-7910

We hope to have a guest speaker there from KLIF radio. The "Desert Son Band" will be performing on the outside stage with their original music and some covers appropriate for the rally. Food and drink will be available for purchase.

This bar is right around the corner from my job. It's not quite a home away from home, but it's at least in 3rd or 4th place. A fun time WILL be had.

This is how they did it in Boston in 1773.

This is how they're doing it in Fort Worth in 2009.

If I can get finished at work by 6:00, I'm going to buy a bottle of alcohol-free beer and pour it out on Camp Bowie. (Wouldn't want to waste anything good on a protest.)

Here are a few more links with info about the event, including one where some idjit writes in to Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show", suggesting they show up with a camera crew to film "the rednecks" for the comedy potential. As if there could be anything dumber than the blatant giveaways we Texas rednecks are protesting against.

Hope to see you there !


In the previous post I featured some student activists who were, to put it gently, not quite competent.

They could take a few lessons from these kids. This is brilliant. Enjoy !

I hope the Bailout Prize Patrol was out the Tea Party handing out invoices. BTW, that's the funniest dang thing I've seen in a while. This appears to be real reactions from the 'winners'.

People freak out when they get a giant check... then a little weird expression when they see it's for a ridiculous amount of $30 Billion... then incredulous when it's not made out to them but Citibank... THEN they get an invoice for $20,000! Priceless!

Also, please GOD Please!! Somebody... I hope somebody took pictures today. I heard it was a madhouse with hundreds of people!!

If I didn't teach all of my minions anything, remember this - if you don't have pictures of it, it didn't happen!!!

I'm sorry I wasn't able to be there! Good job and a tip o' the hat to Whited for preaching to the 'converted'... Kind of like preaching a protestant message to Catholics: Same general theme, and if you make a strong enough argument and tug on the right heartstring a semi-prosyletizing event may occur.

Not a madhouse, a big but well behaved crowd. I was the guy with the sign saying "DON'T SUBSIDIZE STUPIDITY." I'll have some pix up this weekend, but the Freepers already posted some:;page=51
