I woke up this morning only to find out that the whole Tea Party/Town Brawl foolishness has reared its ugly head in my own backyard.
It seems that a local businessman who also serves as the new Florida Chairman of Americans for Prosperity and organizer of the “Loaded Tea Party” is miffed that county code enforcement officers moved to block his plans for a Labor Day celebration on his business’ property that would have featured a gun range on which celebrants could fire their weapons.
In response to the county code enforcement officers’ actions, he subsequently banned all government officials without warrants from the property. To enforce the ban, the businessman erected barricades and posted security personnel to check the ID’s of all desiring entrance.
Labor Day, liquor, and loaded guns—to say that this is a bad situation is an understatement. It’s one of those Waco stand-off situations waiting to happen.
Now you cannot tell me that it’s not getting crucial out there. Anytime the nuts bring out the guns and begin target practice, it’s time to re-assess the situation and prepare your response. Even I underestimated the reaction to a black man assuming the reins of power.
