Below is a write-up in the Oakland Press on yesterday's Tea Party Protest in Gary Peter's neighborhood. As I was not present I can't vouch for the correctness on number of participants. It was interesting to me that the writer did not pick up on the fact that the Party organized the Tea Party and not one of the many grassroots groups. But I voiced my opinion on that in my previous post. Please take the time to read the comments at the end of this article because that gives us a much better idea where we are at as of right now. Seems to me we have a lot of work to do, a lot of going door-to-door (organized by grassroots groups). We'll never be able to deal with hard core progressives, but we need to educate all the independent voters that really don't have a clue. I understand to some degree why some folks are like that, jobs, kids, problems in general keeps them from getting involved or interested in government policies.
