Boise Tea Party... Reverent, Peaceful, Calm. But leave it to Janeane Garofalo & CNN's Susan Roesgen to keep us divided (updated)





Boise's Tea Party began at the Ann Morrison Park where a few hundred met to sing the National Anthem, listen to a handful of speakers (including Ben Franklin), pray and march to the next destination.

As the participants marched from one location to the next, a large copy of the Declaration of Independence was on display. Under the display was a paper, rolled up on both ends for expansion, where each person could sign his or her own name to state that they too would put their John Hancock down to state their belief in the document.





Upon leaving Ann Morrison, people wondered how many others would show up. The path led through a wooded area and under the main road into the city. As they popped up around the bend, they could see another crowd already gathered at Julia Davis Park (see above). Adding to this group, their numbers increase.





More and more signs began to crop up above the crowd. Some with in depth messages and some with simple words that meant far more than could be expressed.





The march from Julia Davis Park was straight on to the capitol building. Because it was under construction, people could not get closer than the park which sits in front of the building. The street was blocked off as the people marched towards their destination. It was obvious that the numbers were increasing and it was hard to fathom just how many people were there while participating as part of the crowd.




Arriving at the capitol building, people were surrounded by signs and others with like minded objections and a look of helplessness which seemed to slowly fade away as it became clear that they were not alone.




GUN CONTROL? HOW ABOUT CONGRESS CONTROL!!




People gathered together in the park and began singing patriotic songs as they waited for the sound system to be set up for the next small wave of speakers. They did not sing loudly... but reverently and almost with a hint of remorse as they worried where their country may be heading. Final total of those attending... 2,500+!!.






Perhaps politicians truly ARE alien invaders?




As the day progressed and the fellowship of the citizens was felt, a sense of self prophecy lingered in the air. Each person could continue with their lives as it was before this day or they could make this day the first day of a better tomorrow. Not an "easy" tomorrow... no... it will be a struggle.

Fun thing to mention: An entire pig was cooked at the park in front of the capitol building as a symbol of TOO MUCH PORK being spent by our government.

How do I know these things? Because I was there.

I took the day off from work (that's right, I used one of my valued vacation days and exercised my freedom of speech rights) and I marched with my family.

We are not racists Janeane... nor are we rednecks and we don't have something wrong with our brains.

We are not radicals Susan... nor did we do anything that would not be considered "family viewing".

We are Americans concerned about the way our government is spending our future into the toilet and by the lack of realism coming from our political leaders. I won't get into all of the other things they are doing... but lets just say that when I see a sign that says "we surround them", I am inspired to remember that THEY WORK FOR US... and it's about time that some of them get fired.

BUG: Janeane Garofalo believes anyone who attended a tea party is a redneck racist and those on the right... well, they aren't in their right mind.



UPDATE: VIDEO ADDED



There were several different news casts regarding the Boise tea party but this one seems to be the most comprehensive and contains the best description of the "reason" for the event. By the way... I am actually in this video. :o)

Watching Roesgen's meltdown was great- it was KILLING her that there was an obviously large movement against the policies of her beloved Obamessiah!

The Tea Parties were great- the msm seemed a little taken aback; obviously there are a lot more of 'us' than they previously thought.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
