I would safely say that most of the protesters on April 15, in Paducah, Ky were like myself; we'd never participated in a protest. It was well attended by all ages . It was good to see young families with their children.
Rep Ed Whitfield was present and spoke to the crowd. He was happy to gather all 1700 signatures and return to Washington; and as he stated, "personally present these signatures to Nancy Pelosi."
We were all asked to bring a can of "pork n beans" to be donated to a food charity.
I thought it was interesting "pork n beans." As you know, there is not much pork n' the beans. And, we want to count 100% of our beans (money) at the end of our work week.
