Now this is what I'd call a "Tea Party". The park officials at the Lake Eola Band Shell said that there were at least 6,000 folks on hand for one of the biggest Tea Party rallies yet this year. Down town Orlando, Florida was a wash in Red, White & Blue, celebrating our values and principals that made this country great and that seem to be fading fast in the wake of what has happened in the last two months since President Obama was sworn in, and even before with things the Bush administration did.
What got me was the fact that so many people feel the same way as I do. They see the slow creep or slither, take your pick, of socialism coming down the slippery slope we seem to have been put on by this administration and by the last one as well. I wanted to post some of the pictures I took while I was there, of the great patriots and signs, so that you may get the feeling of the crowd. Here are some of my favorites:
This one was great, tar -n- feathered pork on a fork. 'bout says it all!
This guy ordered Soviet style metals and ribbons to create quite the convincing "compliance observer". Don't worry thought, in the future, they won't be so easy to spot.......on second thought, worry!
These two young ladies were hanging around afterwards, "Tarp 1 & Tarp 2" very cute and yes, we do have a problem.
I was filled with hope after this, because I saw so many young people there, kids as young as 9, speaking in front of this enormous crowd.
Look for more posts soon of deeper thoughts on the day, I just wanted to get these on as soon as I could.
