What I saw at the Tea Party

A fine time was had this evening in the Show Me state. 8,000 to 10,000 Missourians came together to ask for someone to show me where in the U.S. Constitution it says that our Govt can,
take all our money,
... and our grandkid's money
... and print even more,
... and nationalize our industries,
... and even penalize particular executives or fire others!
Just a couple pictures for now, and off to bed,

Thanks to Bill Hennesy at St. Louis Tea as his fellow organizer Dana Loesch from 97.1 FM (great speech btw) and Jim Hoft at GatewayPundit, and Kevin Jackson at the Black Sphere for MC'ing and all for organizing and pulling this off ... and without the 'benefit' of national personalities or politicians. 8,000 to 10,000 ain't a bad tally for a couple local bloggers!

Awfully darn good to see level headed, polite, informed people gathering together to support the Constitution which protects our freedoms and supports the Republic which makes our liberty possible.

While this is just a start, and will require much follow through, not to mention actual plans... it is still an excellent start... and nationwide!

NYC party was huge. I am guessing over 10k people. We all stood there in the cold night air chanting "We are America." Radio personalities came out to give speeches, Newt made an appearance, and I saw a large number of Gadsdens flying.

But...but, where are all the frothing radical right-wing extremists and vulgar signs?

Thanks Van, for sharing the pics and some of the experience. :^)

Thanks for posting your pics, Van. Looks a lot like what I saw yesterday. Mine were up at the Pajamas site last night, but seem to have been bumped; I may just add them to my Flickr page later.
