Rockwall TEA Party Pt 2


I received a couple comments to my post yesterday accusing me of mis-representing the number of people attending the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) party in Rockwall that occurred on tax day... I was mainly trying to show the people on the street with signs - but in fairness, here's the whole 'shebang'. The person commenting said that there was at least 2,000 attendees at the Rockwall event. Here's a zoomed out photo, what do you think? 2,000?

I'd guess 500 tops, if that. Click on the photo for a larger view!

Lol, pictures don't lie. It was a probably a Baptist pastor making the estimate on crowd size. My experience is that they make similar exaggerations when estimating the size of the congregation.

I am wondering where all the protesters were during the campaign and election. I didn't vote for BO but have to admit that he is simply doing what he said he was going to do. Like it or not, every four years we get the government we asked for.

I took pictures of the tea party in Dallas thousands of people were there, but I hear Fort Worth had a much larger turn out. I wouldn't be suprised if the total nationwide tea party crowds were over a million. Who Knows.
They had some pretty funny and clever signs though. lol
