Retrieved on 2010-01-15. “Przybylski and good friend Mariann Davies began the Kitchen Table Patriots, a conservative group concerned with America's ballooning national debt. They organized the Washington Crossing [Bucks County PA] Tea Party, and to show how new to the game they were, they began by calling it a "pork roast and tea party," said Przybylski, who developed the group's Web site, thekitchentablepatriots.com, though she could "barely cut and paste before I started." She was inspired by CNBC business reporter Rick Santelli's words last February, bemoaning that "the government is promoting bad behavior" with the mortgage bailout plan. It clearly resonated with many Americans like Przybylski, and made him a viral video star.”

"We kind of changed the rules," said Anastasia Przybylski, one of the organizers. ...At one extreme are militia members who have shown up at meetings wearing guns and suggesting that institutions like the Federal Reserve be eliminated. At the other are those like Ms. Przybylski, who describes herself as "just a stay-at-home mom" who became agitated about the federal stimulus package.”
