9/12/09 Tea Party March
The media reported low turnout if they reported it at all. I was there, this is over a million people and not Photoshopped. We left Washington cleaner that is was when we got there. Most people had a garbage bag on them and picked up anything they saw on the ground. Words can't describe the feeling I had with so many peaceful, concerned citizens exercising their rights. I guess we need to be careful now that Obama made an Executive Order banning protests anywhere near him or anyone with Secret Service protection.
Glenn Beck 8/28/10 Restoring Honor Rally
(Again the media reports low numbers but we had easily over 600,000 people. )
It is about 1 mile to the Washington Monument, where this picture was taken, from the Lincoln Memorial. Also, I had a garbage bag with me to use for cleaning up after the event. I walked most of that mile and couldn't find one piece of trash on the ground. We are nothing like the Occupy dirt bags, sorry for name calling but the truth is the truth.
