In tradition with our rich heritage of free speech, my husband and I decided to join in one of the 'local' Tea Day protests.
"You heap pale red man, kemosloppy"
We estimated there were about 636* folks in attendance at the St. Simon's Island Marina today. Could be more because some were pouring in as we left.
* Source is Scarlett who hosted the event. Thanks Dawn! :o)
Everyone we talked to and met was polite, calm, and respectful. Most of us had never protested anything our entire lives. Says something, doesn't it? No wonder the liberal news media is lieing about all these events. Claiming that the Republicans are behind it, yadda, yadda, yadda. Bunch of hot air. Nope. This is a grass roots effort to stop the Democrat-Republican fascism in our politics.
And only a couple of passersby showed us their I.Q. level with one finger. I think that's pretty good!
Husband made the signs. Yeah, I see the misspelled "Allready" and made him carry it. Ain't I a stinker?
Well, it was such fun.
There were also petitions to sign that are being sent to our politians asking them to respect our wishes for lower taxes and less intrusive government. We are earnestly praying that these events will make a difference and are hoping to avoid another Civil War. I am praying that somehow we can restore our rights and liberties for future generations by going back to the Constitution. Hey, miracles can happen.
Oh, yeah, and we're going to be in the local Brunswick news. I'll post that if I can find a link and/or photos.

We were interviewed by The Brunswick News but they don't seem to have anything on-line ... yet. It should be under 'Local News' if it ever gets posted.
