The Tea Party Express bus is funded and on the move, headed to DC for a big Sept rally. The turn out has been great so far!

I do not have an itinerary so watch for it in your community.

Here is it, dear. Nothing very adventurous, but it looks sure-fire: California and out of town quick, a tentative blast in Phoenix while it's still legal, mosey east across the south preaching to the converted -- then go and whip up lots of starving Michiganders, as if that's any real favor to them, and one daring little hit and run windup in Washington.

Our local group now has 16 who will be attending and the number is likely to grow.

I notice you say "The Tea Party Express is funded". Who funds it? Are they passing the hat among the earnest participants and putting grassroot tea in the tank, or isn't this really powered out of some other kind of pocket?

Though the trip for the bus has now been funded by private donations if anyone wishes to support the idea, I will try to steer you to a group in your area. If enough from my area are interested, we will charter a tour bus.

"Private donations" covers a multitude of possible donors. It's not an idle question, by the way -- the idea that the impetus for this mass movement is truly and spontaneously coming from the ground up is being put about, and it's very likely nothing of the kind.

The Tea Party Express is sponsored by a conservative coalition of groups of which, Our Country Deserves Better PAC located in Sacramento, Calif is one. This PAC is the one that is receiving contributions for the tour.

According to their web site, "The Our Country Deserves Better PAC is committed to defeating the candidates backed by Democrat Senate and House leaders, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, in the 2010 congressional elections. We will support conservative challengers in these election campaigns. We will then turn our focus to ensuring that Barack Obama is defeated should he chose to run for re-election in 2012."

Issues, Our Country Deserves Better PAC

According to the Federal Election Commission web site their FEC filing for 2008 indicates 884 individual donors. Each donating various amounts, from $200 to $5000, totaling $1,367,421. Occupations range from retirees and homemakers to CEO's from across the country.

FEC Summary Report for 2008

It would be safe to say that this group is a grass-root group.

We have 40 people already going to the DC rally in September from our area, and it is self-funded. The group doesn't even collect dues or anything. We pay our own way - don't need a government handout...

Same with our group. I think most are the same. This is a grass roots movement. I believe there will be some "private" help locally if one would like to go but could not due to their economic situation.

By the way, my favorite tea is Biglow's Ceylon Breakfast tea.

Its about time we turn the heat up and get these governing officials in the hot-water they well deserve to be in.
