Why on a Thursday? Why not a Saturday when blue collar workers who work Thursday and Friday could attend without sacrificing family time on a school night?

Heads in the sand pretending it will all go away. Guess what? It's America FINALLY speaking out against the socialist Democrat agenda of the last 75 years. It's going to get a LOT worse. People are fed up.

Hanoverians pay attention! It is this type of draconian action (dissenting votes) that show how today's politicians think they can do what ever they want. Vote these idiots out before they make a decision ignoring the constitution that really hurts the community.

In other words a Republican party political action committee. That is not anything new, just a return to the no tax, deficit spending of the Bush years. Yep that will fix it all.

I like the tea party movement, but I think it is being used as a tool by the elites. I say throw all repubs and Dems out. Start fresh.

As opposed to the tax and spend and even higher deficits of the Obama year(s).

I'm glad they are going to have this in a public place. It is one of our constitutional rights to gather peacefully and support who we want, let's not lose that right! You do not need to agree, but you do need to honor their right to an opinion.

These various "tea party" groups do have their constitutional right to voice their oppinion, the problem is many of the branches of this movement are extremists. Many have roots in white supremacy...

So I say to myself, yes, I don't like the goverment in all aspects...but is the alternative better or worse. The tea party's main premise may look attractive, but dig deeper and it scares me.

Doesn't anyone get the obvious irony here. This man is asking to have a public protest against high taxes and big government in a public park paid for by taxes and maintained by a government body. What a bunch of idiots. This is as bad as people at Town Halls yelling at their representatives to get the government out of their Medicare. If you don't like government don't ask to meet in public park. I agree with the councilman, let them meet in a field somewhere. The level of ignorance among the Tea Partiers is beyond astounding. Have any of these people ever read a history book? I'm not as scared of our current government as I was when Bush and company were gutting the Bill of Rights and the Constitution in the name of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act.

You should stop listening to Keith Olberman, another elitist socialist moron. The left is scared to death of the Tea Party movement because it's made up of those who are paying the bills. They don't care who is in government they just want the out of control spnding & growth of govt. to stop. I won't have the govt tell me which car I can drive or what doctor I can see or even that I have to have insurance.

Irony? Hardly, its called legality. As a taxpayer he has every right to use the park but needs the permit to assembly a large group....idiot
