Tea Party versus "Union Thugs" at Indiana Statehouse

An After-Action Report

Tish Cooper has a great guest post over at "Ancient Warrior" today.

It is a first hand, eyewitness, activist account of a tea party member standing ground with about 50-70 other tea party members at her statehouse in Indiana (with introduction by Greg at "Warrior"). 

As they stood against what Cooper pegged "Democrat Fleehadists," it wasn't a day without drama: read how two brave tea party members stood firm as a truck was presumed to be the same one which had twice earlier doused tea party members by running through a mud puddle.

It is your first recommended reading of 2011.

Here is the link to the Associated Press article, published in the "Springfield News-Leader," regarding the tea party versus union protests at the Missouri Statehouse in Jefferson City

Hi Jim, I'll be around off and on. Getting ready for garden season so don't know how much.

It's good to hear from you too. :)

he would come home covered in the black dust of the coal mine, but his smile would shine through the darkness. he was my father, he was my hero, and the union was the only thing that kept him alive. not thugs, but great americans.
