Come on out to the Tax Day Tea Party

Victor Joecks

If you think this tea party is going to involved cheese and crackers, you may be a little behind the times. Here’s some catch-up info.

If you’re interested in attending a Taxed Enough Already (Tea) Party in Nevada – good news – you’ve got plenty of options.

The Nevada Appeal reports on Wednesday’s party up in Carson City.

Lawmakers will see protesters outside the Legislature and Capitol April 15 as part of a nationwide protest against government waste and taxes.

Held on the deadline for paying federal taxes, organizers are calling it the Tax Day TEA Party.

Dorothy Peterson of Douglas County said TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already. “It’s non-partisan, not supposed to be Democrat against Republican or anything like that,” she said.

“It’s just citizens who are tired of being taxed irresponsibly”…

The event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday in front of the Capitol and Legislature.

And there’s a big party in Las Vegas featuring NPRI’s own Goeff Lawrence, Fox News business contributor Herman Cain, blogger Elizabeth Crum and several others. I can guarentee Geoff will be either the best or the baldest speaker there – looks like you’ll have to show up to see which.

The Facebook page already has over 440 confirmed guests, so you know there’s going to be quite a crowd.

It’s going to be held at Sunset Park in Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 15. The official rally picnic goes from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the speakers will start at 1 p.m.

Keynote remarks will be delivered around 1:00 pm by special guest Herman Cain. Cain is a national motivational speaker, a FOX News business commentator, and host of “The Herman Cain Show” on WSB 750 AM out of Atlanta, Georgia. He’s the former chairman of Godfather’s Pizza, as well as a former president of the National Restaurant Association. Cain also ran for the United States Senate in Georgia in 2004.

Additional scheduled speakers include:

* Susane Crawford, Las Vegas Tax Day TEA Party director
* Casey Hendrickson and Heather Kydd, talk-show hosts for KXNT-840 AM
* Wayne Allyn Root, the Libertarian Party’s 2008 presidential candidate
* Chris Hansen, former state chairman of the Indpendent American Party
* Geoffrey Lawrence, Fiscal Policy Analyst for the Nevada Policy Research Institute
* Elizabeth Crum, award-winning blogger of “E!! The True Conservative Story”

Sunset Park is located at the southeast corner of Sunset and Eastern near the airport. Picnic Area F is located in the southwestern section of the park near the dog runs. Use the south entrance off Eastern into the huge parking area adjacent to Picnic Area F.
