From Mrs. Pat McGrady:
We live in a country that allows freedoms only dreamed about in many parts of the world. We share many gifts that older generations scrimped and saved for and gave their lives to achieve. We are generous and selfish at the same time, and many of us need to be reminded regularly of the many gifts that we assume are standard operating procedure world wide. I refer to our education, our police protection, our multiple news sources, our variety of media outlets, but mostly to our religious freedom…the freedom to worship God in any way we choose. We Americans have the freedom to read any books we choose, to write to our lawmakers, our newspapers, to speak on tv or radio, or stand on the street corner and wave signs.
Many countries do not allow such liberty.
On Thurs., April 15, at 4:00pm at the Bel Air courthouse on Main Street, a TEA Party will be held and the people will be heard. Our country is in a transition period and we need to make informed decisions about what, where and how we, AMERICANS, want to proceed. I encourage all of you to come, listen and learn.
The state of our country, the state of our state, the state of our county is at risk. Be aware that the event is free, as is our speech, for now. The direction that our country is headed may not allow these types of rallies, political free speech and peaceful sharing of ideas if people do not stand up and let their voices be heard. If you doubt this statement, please look for information about the Senate bill that John McCain and Joe Liberman proposed about the silencing act of suspected dissidents. This bill is not acceptable under any situation, it allows the govt. to detain people who are suspected of wrongdoing without a trial or without legal warrants. I am not certain of the bill’s status, but just hearing about it, frightens me.
Please note that the event starts at 4:00pm and goes until 7:00pm.
I hope to see many of our county residents attend the Taxed Enough Already Tea Party in Bel Air, on Thursday, April 15. May God bless us all.
