More Good Tea Party Stuff!

In my daily Net-cruising, I have seen more good links!

Sharp Right Turn posted a great blog about the event, some good pics as well as links.

Jenn Sierra of Green Country Values posted these pics, and also some from BHarp1

They look great, and I wish I met more of the bloggers. Next time we do something like this, we need to set up a "Blogger Booth"

They all look great!

Party Pics!

On Friday, 27 Feb. 2009. Tulsa had a tea party! The kind folks on the radio estimated 300-500 people. I'd lean toward the upper half of that estimate.

Morning Radio host Joe Kelly opened the Festivities.
Joe works at KRMG, one of the Local AM talkers.

Props to Joe for recognizing the competition, KFAQ, the other AM talker, was also present.

More from Joe

Oh, Hey! A FairTax Sign!

Sally Bell, recently elected Chair for the Tulsa Republican Party, speaks.

She is followed by State Senator Randy Brogdan (R).

Here's a shot of the crowd. I commented to another fellow taking pictures, "Organizing doesn't come naturally to Conservatives, we'd really rather just be left alone." He pretty much agreed. No real surprise.

Jai Blevins, reaching for the microphone, organized the Tulsa Event. He is taking the Mike from J.B. Alexander, who assisted. Sorry Jai, I took more pics with you in them, but this is the best one.

Jerry Robinson also spoke. He is a local Minister and also an economist.

Crowd shot "Read the Bill!"

More of the Crowd, another FairTax Sign!

"Cut Taxes, not Deals"

Ken Yazel, Tulsa County Assessor and Former Marine. Semper Fi!

A better shot of Senator Brogdon (R), a pretty good showing by local and state Republican Party folks, not much of a Democratic Party presence, not sure why. Hmm.

Chris Medlock (on right) and his Producer, Brent Smith.
Mr. Medlock is the competition that Joe Kelly mentioned earlier. He is currently the only local AM talker for the afternoon. He is also a former City Council member, where he ticked off all the right people, and a former Mayoral candidate. On the council, he was often referred to as the Leader of the "Gang of Five". The "Gang" consisted of five council members that attempted to bring accountability into City Government. You can call it a "Gang" if you want to,but since there are only nine folks on the council, I think it would have been more accurate to call it "A Simple Majority".

Here is Mr. Medlock with Jim Mautino, one of the other members of the "Gang". Again, you can tell a lot about a person by his enemies. These two did a lot of good, thankless work for the City of Tulsa.

Another crowd shot. Note an "Oklahomans for FairTax" sign, and the yellow "Don't Tread on Me". And, of course, Old Glory, Front and Center.

Protest Dog wants Pork. He is the only one present that wants Pork, but he wants it badly.


"Government is Not your Mommy!"
"If you're not outraged, you're not paying taxes!"

This Child is chained to our Debt!
I thought it was a very good image. Well Done.

Sally Bell, Chairperson, Tulsa County Republican Party.

And now, its time to sign out
