I’ll be going to the Tea Party in Morristown, NJ from 11 AM to 1 PM on the 4th. I think the event wisely chose short hours because of the traveling and family event-related nature of this long weekend. Last time, it lingered until 3 PM and the crowd began to dissipate earlier than that. I expect the turnout to be excellent, especially considering the recent behavior of the Democrat-controlled house, and the three (count ’em, THREE) NJ House republicans that voted for the Waxman-Markey Cap and Trade bill. To his great credit, my representative, Rodney Frelinghuysen, was the only House Repubican in NJ that did not vote yea.
I’ll be speaking to as many people as I can about finding an effective, legitimate way to make NJ House Republicans, and US Senators Lautenberg and Menendez, understand that there are going to be political repercussions for voting aye on the latest mockery on human freedom in living memory. I suspect neither of them will bow to pressure from the populace under any circumstances, but it’s worth a shot at saving this country.
Nevertheless, I will find a way to enjoy the weekend, and I hope all of you do to. I’m particularly appreciative about this blogsite, Redstate. It has been just about the only place where my voice as a professional scientist and a concerned citizen has been heard
Enjoy your 4th. Make some noise. Thank you all.
