You don’t want to miss this! From a note just sent out by the Independence Institute‘s Jon Caldara:
President Obama is flying his corporate jet to Denver to sign a bill putting my children into debt. I want to give him a proper mile high welcome. The Independence Institute, along with Americans for Prosperity and other groups promoting sanity, are organizing a protest tomorrow, Tuesday, at noon at the west steps of the state capitol, and I hope you’ll be there.
We’ll have over-sized checks you can sign to show your family’s $30,000 commitment to the bill. I’ll be joined by Michelle Malkin, Mike Coffman, Bob Beauprez, Jim Pfaff from AFP and many others. I’m not usually one for public protests, because like so many on our side, I have a day job. But I just can’t allow this huge push down the slippery slope to socialism be signed here in Denver without standing up and saying, “hell no.” I wish to go on the record. Let the world know there were at least some of us who didn’t want to put our kids into debt for a bill that spends more than has been spent in the entire conflict in Iraq
Please come to the $30,000 a plate pork roast! [Links added]
Night Twister also has the details posted here – with a lovely picture to whet the appetite. No word yet on whether kosher alternatives will be available. Amy Oliver has pertinent comments. Lots of details over at Slapstick Politics as well.
Follow all the developments on the President’s visit and the rally at the State Capitol in downtown Denver over at the People’s Press Collective. Please join me and other bloggers, activists, concerned citizens, officials, and community leaders and lend your voice.
