Texas Tea

I've been sitting and reading about the April 15th Tea Parties. Thought this was good,

"Atlanta protester Dwight Alcala says his main concern is that free-for-all government spending leads to a freeloader mind-set that’s antithetical to the Constitution’s guarantees of individual rights. We’re fed up, and we think there’s a better way."

The media has tried to downplay the Tea Parties with minimal coverage and mockery. But the turnout was great: Atlanta was estimated to have 15,000 people. According to the San Francisco Chronicle a Sacramento rally drew about 5,000, and Associated Press reported that 1,000-2,000 attended a D.C. rally. According to CNN.com “tens of thousands of people spent part of April 15” at tea party demonstrations. Sounds like we had over 5,000 right here in The Woodlands.
