We’ve been told that there is no permitting process for the using the Hendersonville City Hall parking lot. So it would seem the TEA Party is having their party without the taxpayer’s permission.
Don’t you need a permit to raise a stage and give somebody a mike on city property… especially if amplification is involved? I hope vacationers weren’t counting on a quiet night at the Nashville Northeast Hyatt across the street!
Do the vendors have permits to sell food at the event? I’m sure the food will be great, but are they allowed to make money selling food on taxpayer property? What will keep the “I Dream of Weenie” wagon away at night?
I’m sure this year’s festivities isn’t going to cost the city any more money than it did last year… how much was that again?
In today’s Star News, I read that if “Boss Moynihan” doesn’t like what you have to say, he’ll kick you out. Sure, he’ll claim you are there “to create the false impression that protesters are racists” or “give wildly offensive interviews to reporters”… but the guy doing that is in Portland OREGON — if he is even for real! Seriously? Paranoid much?
But let me get this straight… he doesn’t have a permit to use taxpayer property and he thinks it is patriotic to tell you to get off taxpayer property if he doesn’t like what you have to say?
We’re all for a good festival, but I’m not sure what to call a someone who calls taxpayers out on taxpayer property at their expense…
Disrespectful? Perhaps. Rude? Maybe… but it doesn’t sound very patriotic to me.
