NY: Citizens protest Congressman & tax increases

The New York Gathering of Eagles joined hundreds of other patriots to jam a townhall meeting held by Congressman Tim Bishop, asking questions to hold him accountable:

Last night we joined with Patriots from the Conservative Society for Action and a number of other groups to send a very clear message to Congressman Tim Bishop that the days of socialist nirvana have come to a screeching halt. Hundreds of fed up constituents swarmed his Town Hall meeting in Setauket, Long Island, to let him know that they are Taxed Enough Already and they did not appreciate a Nancy Pelosi clone representing them in Congress.

So many people showed up that the parking facilities at the Setauket Community House was filled to overflowing and all available on-road parking was taken up for blocks around. By the time Bishop arrived he had to park three blocks away and run the gauntlet of Tea Party protesters! The look on his face was priceless as he finally got to the hall.
Sounds similar to the Augusta County uprising by citizens in March when 1,000 turned out for the Board of Supervisors meeting to protest inflated real estate assessments.

Americans are taking it to the streets to stand up for their rights. Check out the website for video of the protest and details of the meeting.

My thanks to Dan for passing this along and for his part in planning and participating in the protest.
