Back From Sac!
Back from Sacramento, that is! The tea party tour send-off was not near as big as I had hoped for but it was all good in the hood. I won't get into numbers but I met some great people and saw some wonderful signs in the protest. I shook hands with many people from various cities around Fresno and Sacramento but I also met a large group from San Diego, and some wonderful folks from places like Mill Valley, Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Napa, Pioneer, Jackson, and Grass Valley. Regretfully I carried no camera and should have taken pictures of people with their clever signs. I had two signs I made and printed up on my computer. Next time I'll just use some cheap grade-school type paint for that as my ink in the printer got sucked up from all my unsuccessful "test signs". Oh well, live and learn. If you wanted a good laugh you could just walk around and read all the signs and don't forget to look at the shirts people were wearing. Some really cool Obama art! I didn't take pictures...wished I would have. Sorry about that. I saw and shook hands with a good sized group of Hispanic farm workers from the Central Valley protesting for water. I heard an impressive speaker there named Mason Weaver. Awesome! Another awesome person I met was this man John Dennis. He is running against Nancy Pelosi in 2010! I'm all for that. That is all for now as I must get back to work and earn some more tax dollars for the"Ted Kennedy Funeral on Parade Tour" featuring that SUCK-ASS SENATOR from Arizona... John McCain!!!
