Day456 Monday 11/28/11

ran 4.3 miles
Here is some clear and concise logic from BigGovernment, written by Colleen Owens, that gets reported far too seldom.

While the media is agog with Occupy Wall Street, failing to point out many of their obvious abuses and faults, the Tea Party of Richmond, Virginia has taken the initiative to charge their city for past protests they held in order to point out the unfair treatment the mayor and local government gave to the Tea Party while using tax dollars to support the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Mayor Dwight Jones received an invoice from the Richmond Tea Party for the cost of their rallies and the mayor, conversely, sent a notice to the Tea Party that they were going to be audited. The audit is a blatant attempt to punish the Tea Party for standing up to what is clearly discrimination.

Approximately $8,500.00 was spent by the Tea Party for three rallies, which took place in the same area the Occupiers are currently occupying. They planned and paid for police, portable toilets, park fees and permits. Tax-payers of Virginia are currently paying for the OWS fiasco in that same area, because the Mayor admittedly sympathizes with them.

This is happening all over the country. It is chaos and our president endorses it. It is not Barack Obama’s place to defend or disrupt a protest but when it is costing tax-payers to clean filth off the streets and to maintain the order of these unruly individuals, limits do begin to present themselves and they need to be enforced.

“I guess we’ll be writing a check to the Tea Party people,” said Councilman Bruce W. Tyler, as quoted in the Richmond Times Dispatch. “You can’t treat one group different from the other. It’s unfair.”

702.6 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day91.
