Some Tea Party activists are planning a protest, which they have dubbed a "National Day of Strike," for Jan. 20, the one-year anniversary of Barack Obama's inauguration. CNN reports
that the strike grew out of a recent conference call conducted by conservative activist Allen Hardage, and that it will spotlight businesses that support Democratic politicians' "socialist agenda."
Hardage said that the activists are "frustrated' that Congress is ignoring them, so they plan to respond by attacking lawmakers' contributors.
"We are exposing the agenda of some of the most widely known companies in America and letting the consumer decide," Hardage told Talking Points Memo
. "If a corporation decides to jump into politics to the tune of millions of dollars, then they need to expect that they will alienate some of their customers."
Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
