RADAR ALERT:
Party Hearty: Spend National Tea Party Day Protesting VAWA

April 15th, tax day, is slated to be National Tea Party Day. Throughout the country, citizens will be protest the unprecedented level of federal spending will gather in front of their city halls.

Among the grievances listed at http://teapartyday.com are that the federal government is "spending trillions of borrowed dollars, leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying" and that members of Congress "consistently give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected."

RADAR shares the tea partiers' displeasure over out-of-control spending and pork. Included in the so-called economic stimulus bill of 2009 is $325 million earmarked specifically for ineffective domestic violence programs. Ineffective, that is, at preventing domestic violence. They have been very effective at contributing to the deaths of women and children, breaking up families, and creating incentives for false allegations while whittling away at the traditional due process protections previously provided to the accused.

In the near future, we will be providing a flyer that you can take with you to hand out at a local tea party. This week, we ask that you find out details about your local tea party. To start, we suggest checking out this webpage to learn who's organizing tea parties in your area:
