We attended the Maricopa Tea Party. . . and didn't get kicked out.



















































Tuesday, May 17, 2011, 2130 hours: My friend, Thora and I have returned from the tea party gathering in Maricopa. Nobody recognized us and we didn't get kicked out. Sheriff Paul Babeu walked up to me following his speech, tapped me on the shoulder and said, "I appreciate it, brother."

The gathering was indoors and it was a standing room only crowd. Since we arrived early, we had seats within 10 feet of the speakers.

The speakers focused primarily on the economy, adherence to the Constitution and the seriousness of the illegal immigration problem this country is facing.

There will be another meeting on June 1, 2011. Those that registered at the meeting will receive email notifications.

The 912-Tea- Party- Project Pinal County

The Pinal Tea Party Patriots a non-partisan group of Americans who consider it our duty and dedicate our lives to becoming more active with their civic duties, seeking knowledge about the political process, keeping up to date on current issues, protecting the Constitution, state sovereignty, defending free market principles, reducing spending and taxes, and electing quality American public officials that will adhere to these ideals, regardless of party affiliation.

The event was recorded and is slated to be aired on KGVR 1610 AM, Grande Vision Radio. Until last night, I was unaware that Casa Grande had a radio station.

It appears that Steve Smith has a few critics that resulted is the following inflammatory piece.

Arizona senator Steve Smith gets caught spreading bogus information from hate group FAIR with ties to white supremacists

“In 2009, 14,400 babies were born in Arizona to parents of illegal aliens. The average price to deliver is about $7,500 in hospital that AHCCCS bills for. That’s $108 million spent simply on birthing of illegals in Arizona per year.”

The pro illegal alien bias in this article is laughable.FAIR is not a “hate group,” but I guess when you’re losing the illegal immigration debate, you scream racism and spew lies. This is the “anti” standard operating procedure. It's nothing more that grade school mentality name calling. Unfortunately, their target audience has the same mentality.
