Tuscaloosa Tea Party

I went to the Tuscaloosa Tax Day Tea Party yesterday after work. I had to leave around 6:15, unfortunately. But it was a good experience, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

Here are just a few photos from the afternoon.

This kid is going to have a lot of federal debt to pay off. So will his kids.


Gadsden Flags and related apparel were common at Tea Parties across the country.


The one on the right was one of my favorites.


My friend Adam came prepared.


Another good one on the left.


There's no justification for this out-of-control spending.

There were a few media members there, and I noticed one guy standing maybe 100 feet behind the crowd (toward Gorgas Library). He had a professional-looking camera, and I stopped to see the logo on his shirt so I could find out what media outlet he was with. Turns out he was from the Tuscaloosa Police Department. I half-jokingly asked if he was taking pictures for DHS. He didn't really seem to want to talk. Now I wish I had taken his picture; I'm going to wonder if some of us are going to be in a database or on a watch list now.

I didn't take any pictures there. I had both of the dogs, so no free hand for a camera.
