Mike, as I'm sure you're aware protests do nothing more than give the media something for the evening news and have little or no effect on our lawmakers.

You misspelled tied.

Hey Dan - Is it a rip tide or an ebb tide? (Coming in or going out?)

The key words are "media" and "evening news".

This is a great chance for libertarians to get their names out there and let people know they can organize.

so to make sure it gets top billing on a slow news day, will the participants dress up like indians? or is that India- ns?

and did he say "tea-bag"? thats a sophomoric drunken fraternity gag played on the first man to pass out at a Delta keg party.
what this city needs for tax relief is a good 5 cent slot machine (apoligies to Thomas Marshall)

I think you might be surprised at the media coverage. Tax protests in recent months have been popular with the local media.
