Just stumbled upon quite the shindig planned for July 4 out at Southfork Ranch -- something called America's Tea Party, which is being put on by the Dallas Tea Party folks (nawww) but features a cross-country list of speakers tentatively scheduled to rally the troops. Here's the roll call thus far:
Featured speakers include American hero Scott O'Grady, blogger and best-selling author Michelle Malkin, former Heritage Foundation policy analyst Michael Johns, Center for Immigration Studies Fellow Michael Cutler, Empower Texans CEO Michael Quinn Sullivan, and Texas State Director of Americans For Prosperity Peggy Venable.
In other words: Fireworks? Who needs fireworks? "Tens of thousands" are expected for the event, which runs from 3 p.m. till midnight. Also planned: "games, vendors, prizes, food and drinks for purchase, a 21-minute fireworks program [and folks] standing up for liberty and working against further government expansion, bailouts and irresponsible elected officials." Sounds festive. More details here.
