"Tea Parties" Coming to Pennsylvania

Online conservative activists have rallied to CNBC’s Rick Santelli’s call last for a “Nationwide Tea Party” to protest the economic "stimulus," bailouts, and erosion of liberty.

Here are some "tea parties" coming to cities across Pennsylvania (note: these are tea parties of the Boston Tea Party type, not the kind taken with crumpets).

  • Pittsburgh: Friday, February 27 @ noon. Market Square Details (or here) UPDATE: may be canceled due to likely rain.
  • Philadelphia: Friday, February 27 @ noon. Independence Hall. Details
  • Philadelphia II: Saturday, February 28 @ noon. Independence Hall. Details
  • Harrisburg: Saturday, March 7 @ noon. Capitol Steps (updated location). Details
  • Update: Pittsburgh II: Saturday April 11 @ noon. The Fountain at Point State Park. Details.
More info on Tea Parties across the Nation:

Also, Santelli responds to White House spokesman remarks that he should shut up and go along with the flow.

I am totally behind getting involved and being a viable participant in the modern day tea party. I absolutely, positively agree that WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN THE US do not want these crazy tax increases and spending bills. They must stop immediately. Hello, are we the only ones who are sane around here. What in the world is going on. I am the only one capable of taking care of my financial business. I do not need the Government taking over and charging me to do it. Stay out of our personal business. The Government needs to clean out their own house. Get rid of the waste that is suffacating us as a nation and robbing our children of their future. Patricia Bloomstine
