July 4 Tea Party postponed; the new event is a 9/12 Tea Party

Grassroots El Paso keeps working it:

Due to the events scheduled around El Paso to celebrate the 4th of July, all of the Tea Party locations were unavailable! We have rescheduled the event and will be hosting a 9/12 Tea Party on September 12th in the Arts Festival Plaza Downtown. We are working on some great speakers for the event! Our event will coincide with the 9/12 Tea Parties that will be occurring nationwide. Please mark your calendars for the opportunity to stand united with fellow El Pasoans in support of conservative government.

Our first town hall meeting will be July 8th; 6 pm at the Wingate Hotel (6351 Gateway Blvd. West.) Please join us to discuss key issues that impact the El Paso community. This town hall meeting will be primarily focused on health care, taxes, and education. We hope you will join us on July 8th and bring a friend or two!

We are excited to offer a Constitutional Seminar on October 10th from 8:30am-4:30pm. This seminar is intended to provide education on the political and economic principles of the Constitution, from the preamble through the amendments. You will also learn about the journeys of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington. The location depends on how many participants sign up so be sure to RSVP!!!!

We hope you will join us for these events, and please be sure to visit our website and RSVP!

  1. This announcement is not signed. Who issued it? Does Newspaper Tree support this FOX news invention of Tea Parties? What a joke.

  2. Paul, we support a free and open exchange of ideas. Like it or not, the group is legit and active in El Paso. I can see this two ways: Maybe we’re promoting the Tea Parties. Or, maybe we’re keeping an eye on them so folks like you know who you’re up against. The readers, as always, will decide how they want to see what we’re doing.

    I do agree that we ought to have a link to the website. Here it is:

  3. Is this a new gay group promoting Sunday afternoon dancing? Why not use the Old Plantation, they have a great dance floor and you could drink Margaritas, too!

  4. If you want to throw a real tea party in the true spirit of the biggie in Boston, you should hold it in The Nation’s Capital (no not Hollywood – Washington, DC!), whose citizens continue to suffer the same Taxation Without Representation which the patriots were fighting when they Earl Greyed the Boston harbor. DC citizens are taxed astoundingly high rates (must pay to clean up after all those rowdy Texans come up here to protest the indignities of a world where some people are allowed to be non-Texans) with NO vote in the House of Representatives (one token non-voting Representative is allowed) and no Senator (while you have two – yes I know Kay Bailey doesn’t count but still….).
