    Why is McGlowen speaking in Jackson instead of in District 1? There is a Tea Party in Oxford (her home town supposedly)on the same day.

    She only cares about crowd size, so she’ll sale more copies of her future book, per her statements on the’Gallo show.’

    The Event for April 17th by the Mississippi Tea Party will open gates @ 9:00 AM at the Fairgrounds next to the Big Slide facing Jefferson Street. Games and Dramatic presentations will be available for children We will have live Music, food, and beverages. We do strongly encourage the public bring their lawn chairs, hats, umbrellas, water. We have been notified that the weather will be beautiful and a little warm.

    This is a huge opportunity to enjoy the day outside, TEACH your children about the political process, and enjoy meeting your neighbors and make new friends!
    Following the events at the Fairgrounds, we will MARCH to the Capitol at 12:30 PM, with transportation available for those who can’t walk that short half mile. Speakers will be talking about the issues that are facing the nation, but ESPECIALLY to Mississippi and our public budgets.
    This will be a family day and we are looking forward to seeing all of you!
