The Tea Party Patriots Express is Coming to Town

On November 8, three groups of tea party organizers began a cross-country tour to raise awareness of the California farmers’ water crisis, which is a classic case of big government disrupting the lives of its citizens. But rather than merely protest proposed legislation, these tea partiers intend to raise money for the victims suffering from overbearing regulation… more

The Tax Man Cometh–Again

State of California to Take Additional
10% Tax Out of Paycheck

Paycheck Income Tax Withholding Increases 10%
In November and December, due to Budget Deal last May

SACRAMENTO — Just in time for the holidays, the State of California
will once again dip into the wallets of taxpayers in California.

As part of the budget deal negotiated last May, Californians will
see an additional 10% in income tax withheld from their paychecks in
November and December.

“This is a real ‘bah humbug’ to California taxpayers, who are
already overburdened this year,” said Jon Coupal, President of the
Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “This is precisely what we
meant when we said the Legislature was kicking the can down the
road. Now, at the height of the recession and with the highest
unemployment rate in history, the state will gladly pick the pocket
of millions of taxpayers this holiday season.”

The change is due to the legislation (ABX4-17) passed by the
Legislature and signed by the Governor to accelerate tax collection
due to the State budget crisis. The “income shifting and tax
acceleration provisions” require employers to increase by 10% the
amount of income taxes withheld, based upon an employee’s current
withholding designation.

“The Legislature pretends this isn’t a ‘tax increase’ since it
occurs six months later and it comes out of your paycheck in the
dark of night,” said Coupal. “But to the millions who are struggling
to keep their jobs and put food on the table, this smells like a
tax, acts like a tax, and looks like a tax. It’s a tax.”

Let’s Get it Done—Tea Party Style!

My Barack Obama—aka OFA—aka The DNC is planning “Let’s get it Done!” send off parties for our members of Congress encouraging them to pass ObamaCare.  How nice.

What a great idea. Let’s join the party and tell them No Way!

To find a send off party at your Representatives office enter your zip here.  There are already hundreds of OFA (Organizing for America) ObamaCare supporters who’ve entered an RSVP to give send off parties to their Silicon Valley Congressional Representatives.  Most of the ‘send-offs’ are scheduled for September 1st and 2nd.

We need protest leaders for each Congressional office, if you’re interested in leading the protest for your Representative let us know.

Sound like fun? Sure does, so let’s get it done.  Tea Party Style.

Silicon Valley Tea Party to Boxer: “See ya’ Ma’am”

“See ya’ Ma’am”

The Barbara Boxer book signing protest was great, over 500 came out to say no government takeover of our healthcare system and “Hey-Ho Barbara Boxer’s Got to Go..”  We’ve got video.  Were you there?  Look here.

Photo’s have also been uploaded and posted on our Facebook page by many of the attendees.

One of our patriots was able to get access inside the store and we’ve got great video of Ma’am having a “paid” town hall (you had to purchase the book to ask a question).  Can you say “pay to play”?

She admits in the video that the Senate will use the ‘Nuclear Option’ of reconciliation to pass the government run healthcare measure.  We’re putting together a segment for you, it will posted online soon.
