Long Beach, CA, Tea Party

Okay, I'm in. I don't see anyone having a Tea Party out my way, so I'm going to have to take the bull by the horns. Anyone who is organizing a Tea Party, would you please let me know through which hoops you've had to jump? Permits, crowd control, costs, etc. Thanks.

I have also joined the California State Group at Smart Girl Politics, and I will be updating this over there as well as here.

If you would like to join a group of lovely and intelligent Ladies and Gentlemen, just come on over. You may also find me by going to my page. If you would like to join the California State Group, click on the first link I've provided. Any knowledge you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Have a blessed day.

Update I: Today I set out on my first ever journey to get a permit for the Tea Party Protest. Interesting it was. I have this 37 page package for which I need to fill out for my application. I am on page 5, and it is still just briefing me on how they are going to help me fill it out. I've learned that it's going to cost me, but they haven't said how much yet.

Everyone I've spoken to so far has not heard of the Tea Parties popping up all across America. I've had to explain to them what it is we are doing. When they asked how many people will be attending, I had to say just one so far. lol. I really do not know how many people, if any, will show up.

I have a question. Is it better to have it during the noon hour, say 11 am until 1 pm, or would the early evening be better?

There is really bad parking, so I recommend parking a distance away and taking one of the free buses to the site. I am hoping for an April 15th date, but I'm supposed to have had my request in at least 60 days in advance. I think they are going to work with me, though. That is what they said. I think it is because I have no idea what I am doing and the number of people is so low. lol.

Hey, if I end up being the only person that shows up, so be it. I'm going. If the Tea Parties won't come to me, I'll throw my own. ;)

Well, that's it for now. I'll let you know more tomorrow. Gotta start reading again...

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

  1. I wondered if you could help us. There are undocumented ( I believe) people living next door to us. I have gone to the city of Long Beach to no avail.

  2. First and foremost, treat everyone with respect. If you are not sure of their status, just ask. I do. Then you can call ICE. They probably won't do anything unless there are being crimes commited.

    What you should do is contact your Councilmember, your Assemblymember, your State Senator, your Congressmember, and both of your Senators. CONSTANTLY. Everyday. Be polite. Do not use any bad words. It only makes you look bad. And it should! We are all still human beings.

    There may not be anything you can do, to be honest, but the effort will be a good exercise for you. You will learn for yourself why I am out there now. I have been doing this over many subjects since 1990, and I have gotten nowhere. So now I'm taking it to the streets. Hey, what can I say? I'm originally from New York. *heh*
