Letter: First letter very simple

I recently read some kind of a rebuttal to a letter I wrote on Oct. 20, and this letter left me very confused.

Somehow, the tea party was brought into the picture, though it was never mentioned in my original letter.

I was trying to get people to look around them and make decisions on what they were seeing and processing in their own minds. My point was for people to observe the number of vacancies in commercial and industrial real estate and use their own brains to decide if we are better off now than four years ago.

In this age, you cannot clearly judge anything because all information you do not process directly is subject to interpretation by someone else.

My piece was very simple, like when you go to the park and sit on a bench you always look where you sit because you don’t want to wear something left by a pigeon.

That is processing information directly; if you sit without looking, you are going to be embarrassed when you walk away.

Now, what I understand about the tea party is that it is a rallying cry, not a party with dues and secret handshakes.

I don’t have a membership card because I don’t see it as an organization but rather a way for individuals to get their message out.

My reason for getting involved in the tea party movement was because I was treated very shabbily by our City Council at a meeting where I spoke critically of community concerns not being addressed by the Council. A letter I wrote to the then-mayor was never acknowledged.

If I do not get the common courtesy of being recognized as a free citizen again, I will raise the cry for the tea party. In the meantime, I will continue making our community a better place for everyone to live.
