Naturally, I told them, the picnic at the Club comes first. Then we are headed to Elmwood Park for a gathering of the Roanoke Valley Tea Party from 5-7pm. They were psyched. The girls immediately started planning their protest signs. But the best was yet to come....we were going to a party AT NIGHT to watch the fireworks! "You know what this means don't you?" Maggie asked Morrigan. "There will be teenagers there!" Ah picnics and protests and teenagers, oh my!
For my in town readers, we would love for you to join us at the protest on July 4th. Not to get all political on you, but I will, both the Cap and Trade and Healthcare legislation is alarming. Did you know that Cap and Trade includes language that would prevent you from selling your home unless it met as of yet undetermined environmental government standards? Or that Cap and Trade has provisions to give ongoing monthly payments, via direct deposit, to low income homes to make up for the increased energy costs the bill itself will cause? And as for nationalized healthcare, the disasters that are Britain and Canada's state run systems should be incentive enough to fight against such a travesty in the United States. Let your voice be heard before it is too late!
