It’s really on. Tomorrow, thousands of sick and tired taxpayers on the ground and online will participate in “Tea Parties” across the country. Go here for links and locations. Chuck Simmins also has a handy thumbnail guide, as does Little Miss Attila, whose list I’m reprinting below the Tea Party Twitter widget, with as many additions as I can keep up with through the night.

There are two tabs on the widget: The #teaparty live feed and my #michellemalkin twitter feed (there may be up to a 30 minute delay on updates). I’ll be on a plane tonight and (hopefully) in D.C. tomorrow to cover the Tea Party there. Party on!

***Update: DC Tea Party moved to Lafayette Party across from the White House. They just got permit…directly north of the White House on H Street between 15th and 17th Streets, NW, Washington DC***

Also added NYC Tea Party info below. Plus: Pittsburgh Tea Party postponed due to weather/permit issues. More added below…

If you can’t make it to a protest event, one Facebook user has posted the following virtual Tea Party info:

Many of us were inspired after Rick Santelli gave his speech on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange calling for a Chicago Tea Party.

There will be many events taking place across the country where people are gathering in protest of all of the spending and taxing that has been occurring lately in government. I wanted to offer an opportunity for those of us who have to work to be able to participate.

I want to encourage all of you to stage your own form of a protest at your work. Don’t do anything against your company policy that would get you disciplined or fired. Here are a few ways that you can participate:

1. Participate in the live tweeting using the #teaparty hashtag.

2. Take part in the Tea Party rally in Second Life.

3. Writing letters to the media, elected officials, etc.

4. Blogging about the Tea Party and the message behind it.

5. Bring bags of tea to work and lay them on your desk. When your co-workers ask you why, explain the reasoning behind the protest and say you are showing your support.

6. Make iced tea for the office and share the message with those you work with.


The last two on that list are things you can do at work to show support, but if you don’t feel comfortable you can still do them, but just not explain your reasoning to your co-workers if you aren’t comfortable or if you don’t work in a really accepting place.

I hope that this offers you a way to participate and I hope to “see” you there!
