Based on traffic numbers to the Arkansas Project and the e-mails I’m getting, you people are ga-ga for all this Tea Party tax protest business. With the next round of nationwide demonstrations set to go off on April 15, including here in Arkansas, here are a few notes to round up what’s going on:
➤ The Central Arkansas Campaign for Liberty has scheduled an organizational meeting TONIGHT at 6 p.m. at the Main Library in downtown Little Rock. If you’re planning on attending a Tea Party protest in Central Arkansas, hook up with these guys, because they have actually proven that they know how to put together a successful demonstration (200 people in March to welcome VP Joe Biden at a fundraiser for Sen. Blanche Lincoln!). They have a track record—sign up with them now and get on their mailing list.
➤ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette columnist Mike Masterson, newly installed as opinion editor of the ADG northwest edition, did a little write-up on the Tea Party movement in his Tuesday column, spotlighting the April 15 protest in Fayetteville.
➤ A couple of additional helpful resources if you’re looking to hook up with organizers are the National TEA Party Day site and the Tax Day Tea Party site. (Are all these groups coordinating with one another and aware of one another’s planning activities? Rob Richard, call your office!)
I’ll update more as needed.
