Here is another e mail I received from a friend.
Its counts 16,000 people.
Hi All! Thought you might enjoy a short report on the SA Tea Party yesterday. I wasn't going until friend Janet called saying she had a feeling this would be a really important event and she wanted to be a part of it. Since we both missed getting to go to the presidential inauguration we decided we'd do this. It seems by the final count we were joined by 16,000 others who feel the same as we do. Here's a link of an aerial pic. You can see people are still streaming into an area that's already packed like a can of sardines. They had an overflow area at the Hemisphere Plaza, but I didn't see it and have no information on what type of crowd occupied that space. The attendees, packed together as tightly as they were, were all very peaceful and accommodating. I suppose our "like mindnessess" (I believe that may be a Bush word) kept us tolerant of one another. The signs were great. Some slight bit of Obama bashing, but nothing vulgar. I was stopped several times so my t-shirt could be photographed. It simply had printed on it "'s that whole hopey-changey thing working for ya" and that's about as severe of anti-administration slogans as there were. There were however A LOT of signs and slogans asking for a return to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, term limits and implementation of the fair tax. Well, and then there was the guy in the pink pig suit wearing a cape that had written on it "I am Barney Franks' favorite barnyard pet". Glenn Beck did a great job. With the Alamo as his backdrop, he spoke of the line drawn in the sand and how we as Patriots needed to work to defend and protect that line. Ted Nugent played what he called his favorite "ditty", the National Anthem, and spoke very bluntly as usual. Steve Vaus ended up playing 3 times his song "We Must Take America Back". We had several speakers with great messages. Here's some of the Beck program.
There were whole families in attendance with school age children. A few infants in tow, though I believe most of those left early. It was just too hot and crowded for tiny people. What Janet and I both appreciated seeing was how many young (30 and under) adults were there and involved. They're educating themselves on the issues and setting a path to secure their futures. We didn't see any right wing terrorists. Oddly enough, we didn't meet any "progressives" either. I think the mainstream media needs to start paying attention. For it is true....a revolution is brewing. This video is just some of the music with a camera panning the area while Beck is doing his sound checks and getting ready. "In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem." Ronald Reagan, 1981 "The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in a national legislature." James A. Garfield
