Lafayette, LA Rally A Huge Success!
Posted by Mike and Karen

Saturday, March 7, 2009. Lafayette, La. - A crowd of U.S. taxpayers, estimated at 400-500, gathered at Lafayette's Memorial Park today to protest and show their disgust and anger at the astronomical amount of money being wasted by the U.S. government who has indicated that it will be the U.S. taxpayer to fund it all. Though the main theme of the protest was the extreme amount of 'Pork' being bought by the government and the subsequent increase in taxes, there were many other sentiments expressed against the current administration and the nations congressional and senate leaders for legislating and supporting the expensive bills.

It was a beautiful day and people were really enthusiastic that something, even though only symbolic, was being done. They were eager to hear the speeches and be a part of the re-creation of one of history's most profound demonstrations: The Boston Tea Party of 1773. the crowd cheered as the 'Tea" was thrown in the lake. In unison, the crowd shouted 'USA! USA' until the rally was over. Several attendees stayed and talked in small groups and several protesters continued to wave their signs and shout at motorists who passed by the park.

More demonstrations, gatherings and meetings are expected in the future and are aimed at stopping the financial bleeding and Socialistic direction the country is apparently headed for. One attendee pointed out this fact: "There was not one single piece of trash left on the ground when it was all over" alluding to the filthy garbage littered streets of Washington, D.C. left by his supporters after President Barack Obama's inauguration in January of this year.

Initial pre-Rally photos below. Others taken during the rally hopefully will be posted. Was busy during the rally and no photos which show the enourmous crowd. Believe it or not...people were still coming even after the rally ended. For a small city we did good!

Here's how....if anyone has better guidance send to me.....
First........type your text entry into the post block to include typing or paste the URL you want us to view........when finished with the text, highlight and copy the URL in the text.......then click the "add hyperlink" tool in the B, I, U box just above the text entry, after clicking, a window will open asking for the URL...paste the URL in the box and click "OK".
