Of all the week's tea parties, this one tonight may be one of the biggest. Greenville's Tea Party is expecting about 10,000 people and it is being held in a venue where suddenly the Greenville Counties Teacher's Union (btw, Greenville County School System is not only the county largest employer, it is the largest school system in the state) has initiated a meeting of their own...a SOS....Save Our Schools. This outta be good!!

BTW…I just heard that Gov. Sanford is attending!!!!

The best one I saw simply said “I’M PISSED”

One of my favorites on Wednesday was “The real pirates are in Congress”.

I saw a fun one with an image of the "Debt Star" (the Death Star from Star Wars). I've seen this image here on Free Republic. It's done like one of those de-motivational posters.

I also saw a good one Wednesday that read simply LOL, with Obama's logo as the "O."

And, of course, there's always the helpful spelled-out phrase for the acronym "Obama" (One big-a$$ mistake, America).

In a bit of purely Cincinnati humor, I saw one fellow Wednesday who had a homemade sticker on his denim jacket that read, "Make love, not trolleys." (Cincinnati is proposing a hare-brained scheme to build a trolley line.)

A donkey and an elephant holding a man upside down (each holding one of his ankles) as the change falls out of his pockets. Title above was something like “It’s all about teamwork.”

You have to plug FR with your sign.

My sign said on one side ‘DON’T BOLSHEVIK ME!’ (I saw this on a t-shirt once) and the other side was ‘Party Like it’s 1773’ (I saw this one from another t-party) but I have to say I saw a cool one ‘I feel like a ship passing Somalia’

There are some really good ones out there

“Who is John Galt?”

At Annapolis a gentleman wore a yellow hard hat with the name John Gault affixed to either side.

I have to say the young lady partying like it's 1773 is my favorite.

Wow, we got the same kind of loonies here in Albuquerque trying to convince the populace we need a trolley here, too. Mayor Marty needs something to hang his legacy on.

I liked the one that had nothing but the “Obama” word on it, but with the “O” replaced by a bright red hammer and sickle.

The best sign I saw was held by a wheelchair bound lady in Lansing, Michigan. The sign said; “Taxes are Crippling Me!”

I was also kind of proud of my own sign which is my tagline.

My personal fav was: “Pelosi: Stop spending my tax $$$$ on personal travel - USE YOUR BROOM!”

Also in the top five were:

“Why do I feel like a ship passing Somalia?”

“DC PIRATES have hijacked our government”

“The constitution guarantees EQUAL RIGHTS not EQUAL THINGS!”

“George Washington was an ex-military right-wing extremist”

“FEDZILLA!!!!!!! Impeach the beast!”

Another clever one was some beautiful artwork of this huge engorged monstrous pig labeled with Stimulous and Bailouts collapsing the treasury building. A small ant-sized taxpayer was struggling to pull the beast off the treasury building without success.

And then there was the guy with the t-shirt that said:

Christian
Conservative
Pro-life
Pro-Gun
Pro-Constitution
Pro-Military
Heterosexual
Right-Wing Extremist
Any Questions?
