    I just got home, so I'm gonna make this brief... I headed out to the Tea Party with a coworker, my boss and his wife, and later met up with JaegerWulf. We had a whole gaggle of folks that were supposed to go, but a bunch of stuff seemed to come up last minute. Didn't seem to hurt the turn-out much - I'd say it went well.

    In no particular order:

    Ninjas, Texas style:

    It turns out babj615 secretly snuck in to Texas for the event. Oh, and he's secretly a woman. Sorry babj, I outted your big secret, and I didn't need any tiny black helicopters to do it... :D

    I don't know what qualifies as "big" for one of these rallies, but I think it was a sizable turnout:

    It was quite the family function - TONS of kids, babies, and all-around good folk:

    The rally was in front of Dallas City Hall - that's the ostentatious building in the background:

    Probably my favorite adult-made sign (God bless Texas women):

    Damn ninjas again. Don't worry, goinpostal - I kept a keen eye on him. I think he was intimidated, because he didn't call in his jihadist buddies or make any fast moves towards his katana:

    Probably my favorite sign/moment of the night:

    This one is a STRONG runner's up:

    The crowd immediately dispersed around this guy... I heard he was one of those right wing extremists. Hell, he's probably one of those crazies that is a member of an internet gun forum :eek::

    It was hard getting a picture of this one, but it was great. So great that people kept flocking to take pictures and my shot kept getting ruined. I guess we know the political leanings of the Chic-fil-A Cows:

    I was holding the camera the whole time, so no pictures of me in this one - you'll have to talk to DHS if you want those, or file a FOIA request for my FBI file :D...

    It was a BEAUTIFUL night - couldn't have asked for better. The atmosphere was cheerful and the crowd diverse. We didn't have any troublemakers that I saw. Mark Davis MCed the whole thing, and did an excellent job IMHO. There were quite a few speakers, most of them good. All in all, I had a really good time. The event was very much a reminder of how truly excellent the good people of Texas are. It's easy to get wrapped up in all the bullshit that is happening lately and to totally lose sight of the fact that we aren't JUST surrounded by all of the socialist subversives. God Bless Texas, and God Bless America :cool:

    Sorry babj and Big Rick - you guys caught me offguard and posted before I finished, so I axed them to clean it up. I should have locked the post while I was working on it - my bad :eek:.

    Ours wasn't bad either. We had about 400 people turn out for the event and countless thousands that drove past honking in approval.

    I am glad that you guys had a safe event and that you had a decent turn out. Ours went off without a hitch and with a friendly atmosphere. Zero trouble.

    Sorry I didn't even think to take the camera and take pics. Sorry guys

    Here's one I forgot:

    I guess he never got the memo that being a Libertarian doesn't always mean being popular... :D That guy was a trooper - he held that damn sign up the entire rally - I was pretty amazed by his dedication. I would have loved to attend the Tea Party that Ron Paul spoke at.

    Looks like you had better weather than we did in Lafayette Park. We had a few thousand hearty souls in the rain and cold, but had fun posing for the Homeland Security and White House cameras.
