COUNTYWIDE TEA PARTY RALLY DRAWS SMALL CROWD, BUT PARTICIPANTS REMAIN STEAMED OVER LOCAL AND NATIIONAL POLITICS
October 9, 2011- American Flags were prominent last Saturday, October 1, as a small but boisterous group of T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) Party members congregated at Kit Carson Park in Escondido for some “October Tea.” Compared to the thousands who turned out for this weekend’s Occupy San Diego demonstrations, the crowd size numbered only about 60 people. But participants were equally passionate about their dissatisfaction with the status quo in America.
Ramona Tea Party stalwart Terri Linnell coordinated the event. After her closing speech, ECM asked Linnell if she plans to again challenge Congressman Duncan Hunter for his seat in 2012. “Yes,” she replied with a smile, “I am running.”
Nothing but the truth!

Liquidity traps typically occur when expectations of adverse events (e.g., deflation, insufficient aggregate demand, or civil or international war) make persons with liquid assets unwilling to invest.

August 28, 2010 (San Diego) -- The Glenn Beck “Restore our honor” rally at the National Mall recently illustrated the continued short-sighted view point of the far right, and the left’s inability to arrest it. In speeches replete with religious over tones and nationalistic fervor, the Beck-Palin Tea Party rally was an insult to those who truly want freedom.
