    It's funny how he parrots the AFCLIO's numbers when the only picture I can find is this highly cropped one:


    Golly gee whiz but the Rev sure is a sharpie. He has blown the cover off this whole scandal exposed the fact that we only had 73 folks come out and we shoved them altogether for the photo.

    In case you want a different opinion other than the Rev, here is Michigans largest daily

    Thousands protest in Lansing against governor's policies | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    they said there were more than 5 thousand in attendance with another listing it as more than 7,000.

    One different thing about this rally was that it started late morning and lasted until well after 6 PM. Most rallies here are a few hours and by 2 PM everyone has gone home. Because of that, they had two shifts of people who came in - some leaving for a 3PM job start and others arriving after a 3 PM job ending shift. As a result, there were between 4,500 and 5,000 people on site at any given time but the numbers of actual participants was much higher than that.

    You did not read the explaination about the two work shifts and how the crowd changed to accomodate the work schedules? see post 711.

    For somebody that pretends to hate BIG BROTHER GOVERNMENT sticking its nose in the lives of people, you certainly have no trouble sticking your nose into the activities of others.

    Somehow I will doub't you will be talking to any in the tea party
    Its a free country and you can doubt anything you want to doubt. When the tea party had their first big series of rallies in April of 2009, I greatly enjoyed going to two of them near my home and talking to people to get the mood of the crowd. It was very informative. As a 33 year teacher of Government and American History, this sort of stuff draws me like a moth to a flame.

    This is a discussion board. I am not the government. Keep up.

    I don't believe you, given you thinking anyone to the right of is an extremist, and the constant vitriol you spew towards anyone who disagrees with you, I highly doubt that you talk to the tea party at all and if you did it would be a contemptuous affair.



    Also I love how you complain about my criticism, and in the next paragraph call it a free country.... Cake and eating it, and all that you know?

    I could not care less what you believe. You have made it very clear that you see me as THE ENEMY.

    I don't view you as an enemy at all. Nor a threat, nor of consequence.

    I am not "selling". Read the news accounts and you will see the hours perfectly agree with the information I provided. But who cares what you think anyways? Not me.

    btw - our sixth floor office window looks out over the front lawn of the capitol. Right now, it looks like a crowd of several hundred to perhaps 1,000 has gathered for a noon rally. I will be going over in a few minutes.
