Our gal Kylie Jane is on board, and she’s been keeping you Twitterers up to date real time with what’s going on.
During the Tea Party Express’ stop at the Copeland Park Oktoberfest Shelter in LaCross, she tweeted a couple of remarks I made from the stage:
“We’ve been watching from all four corners of the country… this is Ground Zero!
“This is a battle not just for Wisconsin but for our entire country!”
This afternoon’s gathering was an assemblage of some 225 friendlies, folks who are genuinely concerned about their state and their country. Like Annette Olson who traveled with us from the Hudson rally, and Jake Speed, who’s trying to build his print apparel business.
Meanwhile, back on the bus after a long day we laughed at the comments of Senator Longface of Massachusetts and the blowback he’s receiving for being such a “patriot”. A sunshine patriot… and even calling him that is a stretch. What a horse’s arse…
I want to thank several bloggers who are reprinting our posts and adding some of their own: Jim Hoft at The Gateway Pundit; TrevorLoudon.com; The Noisy Room, I Own the World, and Michelle Malkin. And speaking of The Noisy Room, Terresa Monroe-Hamilton has another fascinating read about all you tea partiers out there. It’s written by Jim O’Neill and appeared at Gulag Bound who grabbed it from Canada Free Press.
(Gandalf) “‘Always after a defeat and a respite, the Shadow takes another shape and grows again.’ ‘I wish it need not have happened in my time,’ said Frodo. ‘So do I,’ said Gandalf, ‘and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. And already, Frodo, our time is beginning to look black. The enemy is fast becoming very strong.’”
– J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973) “The Fellowship of the Ring”
“There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil.”
– from the LOTR film trilogy “The Fellowship of the Ring”
Meet the LaCrosse Hobbits. Proud to say I’ve made their acquaintance.
