If you are in NC, join the tea party

Tomorrow there will be a tea party protest in Raleigh led by Americans for Prosperity. (Since we are in the south we might have to call it a "sweet tea" party.) Here is the general info:


New American Tea Party

Saturday, March 21, 2009

12 - 2:00 pm

State Capitol (east side)

Raleigh, NC

You can find additional information on this event, as well as on upcoming events in other parts of the state, at the Americans for Prosperity NC website.

I'm honestly curious. What was the turnout? I live in Raleigh, but I had to work today, or I would have swung by to count the number of tinfoil helmets.

Dave in W-S:

Turnout was about 350. It was a great event, good speakers, good enthusiasm, and the USMC band and pipe and drum units parading behind us to give some great patriotic ambience. Am uploading photos as I write and will post the URL as soon as I am done. Brand new blogspot site, created for the purpose, but the pictures are where it's at.

Dave in W-S:

Photos have finally uploaded. Blogger interface over wifi with hi-res photos is a pain in the butt. But the photos came out pretty good, I think.

The site is here.

Dave in W-S:

Bruce, you should have taken a little time off and come by. You might have heard something that turned a light on for you.

You know what? You're right. After sleeping on it, I realize my comment was snide and disrespectful. It is every American's right to protest, and you exercising that right is something to be commended, not disparaged.

I apologise for that comment.

I reserve the right to be snide and disrespectful in the future. But this subject didn't deserve it.

Dave in W-S:

Graceful apology accepted.

Invitation still stands to stop by next time and see what it's all about. No tinfoil, just legitimate concerns by American voters.
