The Chicago Tea Party

I'm in.

All this is due to CNBC reporter Rick Santelli (at least he was a CNBC reporter this morning . . .) who, as reported on Rush Limbaugh's radio show as well as many points on the Internet, morphed from reporter to rabble-rouser, the rabble in this case being the traders on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. He says we need a Chicago Tea Party this July.

The video is here (about five minutes of reporter-ranty goodness).

I'm there. As Thomas Jefferson said, "A little revolution now and then is a good thing; the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

And yeah, taxation IS tyranny. Always has been.

Who else is in? A partial list, courtesy the technosocialists at Google:

American Princess
The Market Ticker
The National Conversation (Raw)
Neo-Neocon
Backyard Conservative, who says he's hearing it will be Tax Day, April 15th. I say, why limit it to only one Tea Party?
The Hedgehog Report
Take a TECKnews
Batman's Manifestoes(sic)
Roger L. Simon (a founder of Pajamas Media)
From the Foothills
The Rational Capitalist
Axis of Right
EppsNet
Temple of Mut
Southern Belle Politics
Ned Grace
Geldpress
980 At Night (Oh good lord, 980 KMBZ snuck a brand-new local program in on me . . . midnight to 2 am Saturday nights. Why doesn't anyone tell me these things!
Liberally Conservative
Storm'n Norm'n (probably not General Schwartzkopf)

That's just a few of the 100,000+ blog mentions currently on Google.

And, finally, credit where due, the image leading off this article is from The Market Ticker. It needs to be angrier, IMHO, with pitchforks and the like. But still . . .

See you in Chicago!
