If it's the same Tea Party Express that Fox News has been covering in the afternoons, it looks like y'all having a "grand ole time".

Enjoy the travels.

New Anthem:

We Won’t Pay (apologies to the offspring)

Barack’s got a Health care plan
And he thinks it is great
He tells me every day
He says “we need to redistribute your income
In the worst kind of way”

He sits on his ass
We work our hands to the bone
To give him money every payday
They want more dinero just like ancient rome
Well my friends
You gotta say

We won’t pay, We won’t pay ya, no way
Obama needs to get a new job
Say no way, say no way, no way
Obama needs to get a new job

I guess all our money, well it isn’t enough
To keep their tax collectors at bay
I guess all our money, well it isn’t enough
Cause Washington has got expensive tastes

We won’t pay, We won’t pay ya, no way
The Politicians need to get a new job
Say no way, say no way, no way
The Politicians need to get a new job

Well I guess it ain’t easy doing nothing at all
But hey man free rides just don’t come along
every day

Let me tell you about my other friend now

Pelosi wants cap and trade, man that makes me sick
She tells me every day
They want more dinero just like ancient rome
Well my friend
You gotta say

We won’t pay, We won’t pay ya, no way
Pelosi needs to get a new job
Say no way, say no way, no way
Pelosi needs to get a new job

As long as you are there, at least go to Riverwalk and ride the boat. It is pretty cool.

Also, the restaurants along riverwalk look expensive, but they are not. Eat lunch there.

The riverwalk is about 2 blocks from the Alamo.

I think the boat ride costs 8 dollars and you buy a ticket before getting on the boat.

There is a fabulous italian place underneath the mall that is near the alamo, but all the restaurants are inexpensive and pretty good, in spite of looking like tourist traps.

Just heard a great report by Deborah Johns on AM 1200 WOAI Radio, Plus, KSAT TV had a live report from Alamo Plaza.

Once again, it sounds like San Antonio stepped up to the plate.

Thank you so much for stopping in the greatest city on the Planet.

Keep the rubber on the road, don't let anybody bite your fingers and Give 'em Hell!!

If I get any links or pictures, I'll pass 'em on up I-35 to you guys.

Once again, Thanks to you All.

Are they going to Dallas or Fort Worth? It is a big state. I once drove from Dallas to Waco which is pretty close on a map. Not so close by car.

KTSA said there were about 1,000 people there. They said it was the largest Tea Party on the journey so far. Way to go SA! I know I got my picture taken at least once by one of the Tea Party Express folks down by the bus on my way out, so hopefully it will be posted on their website. My sign said "Be Very Afraid...This Right-Wing Domestic Terrorist Votes!!! on one side and "If You Won't Read The Bills, At Least Read The Constitution!!!" on the other side.

Jim - I looked for you after the buses rolled in, but there were just so many people it was hard to move around and I had to get back to work right afterwards. Sorry I missed you, I guess you'll have to settle for a cyber hug! Besides, we were probably too sweaty at the rally to hug anyways, LOL! Enjoy the rest of your trip and give 'em hell in DC for me!

One of the veterans at the rally took the microphone and told a story about a town hall meeting with US representative Charlie Gonzalez (San Antonio). He said that he asked Gonzalez to promise to be bound by the US Constitution, but that Gonzalez replied that the Constitution was as an old piece of paper that was written more than 200 years ago and holds no significant value for today’s times.

He posted the same account as a comment to an Austin American Statesman article

Link:

"I am a proud veteran,,I swore a solemn oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United Staes of America,,,Last week I attended, very peacefully, a town hall hosted by Cong Charles Gonzales in San Antonio. I watched and heard as the congressman belittled my constitution as an old piece of paper that was written more than 200 years ago,,,and holds no significant value for today’s times. His exact quote."

Gonzalez won with 72% of the vote in 2008, but that was a throw-out-the-republicans year, and I think this episode should be a campaign issue in 2010. It astounds me that we have so many traitors who are not even trying to conceal their ideologies, and yet they are still in office.

.........

Griff Jenkens of Fox News was there. He snuck up on us from behind. I looked back and saw he was standing right next to me, interviewing several tea partygoers with a mike and camera crew.

I estimate there were between 500 and 1000 who showed up.

It was great to see you &nd Sheila, and Chris. Sorry the weather was so hot. I think you were handling it better than some of the Texans there(me).

BTW, I didn’t even know there were any Move On folks there until I just watched the news. Figures they’d get their mugs interviewed since there were about seven of them. Hope you stopped for lunch someplace.

I looked for you. I don’t think me or my sign made the news. It was one of those “man” targets (wish my groups were better, but they were all kill shots), and it said “Quit targeting Taxpayers”. I didn’t really have any sign stuff, so got creative. Then I wrote, Bailouts, Cap & Trade, Cash 4 Clunkers over the target.

I seemed to be standing in the vicinity of where people were fainting from the heat. Lots of great folks there.
Sorry I missed you.

Just got home from the Waco tea party!

It was a great turnout! They said more attended today than any other Waco tea party event. Many booths with candidates introducing themselves and people selling t-shirts, water, flags, etc. I noticed lots of senior citizens that probably wouldn't’t be out in 100 degree weather. Very concerned, energized crowd.

There were only 8 protesters!! (LOL-I counted!) The police made them keep their distance but of course the anchorette @ one local TV station interviewed them.

People out in force in Waco as the Tea Party passes through

by Lauren Keeffe
WACO - Waco police say a crowd of 1,000 gathered at Indian Spring Park in Waco as the Tea Party rolled through town, on its way to Washington, D.C.

News Channel spoke to people on both sides of the healthcare debate.

Toby Marie Walker, with the Waco Tea Party said, "People need to get out and get involved, get active in their their communities, even if you don't agree with us you should be active because a politician will be and you'll get taxed"

Meanwhile, Byce Vardiman, who is for Healthcare Reform told us, "We think it's panic driven and it may be race driven to a certain extent bc some of these people who are advertising here are showing their dislike of our president."

News Channel 25 will continue to follow this story and bring you the latest information.

Was flipping around and saw the 6PM news on KCEN 9 (formerly 6) - reporterette Christina Coleman, former news anchor in Anchorage Alaska, was on-scene, interviewed a couple of attendees. First up was a black gentleman apparently holding a small Gadsen flag, was asked why he was there at which time he reeled off a whole list of issues, everything from cap and trade to the czar garbage and he wants all the jerks in Washington out of there and gone. Next up was some character which I strongly suspect was light in the loafers, wearing a strange pink and black t-shirt with an illustration of a hobnail boot coming down on a stylized crowd of people, said he was with some outfit called "Friends of Peace" (the spooky t-shirt didn't look very peaceful) to do a counter-protest. Yeah, whatever dude. There's really nothing on the KCEN website - it's not like it used to be there - they used to be pretty aggressive at posting videos and keeping their website updated but not so anymore. Think maybe the new ownership messed that up.
 
Thanks for stopping by Mr. Robinson and have a safe trip!!

Hi! I saw that local news piece, too! (I’m in Cove.) I missed the very beginning, but saw the conservative black gentleman being interviewed, and he did a great job! I wondered if the reporter lady were surprised that he was not in the tank for Obama. The kid who represented the counter protesters was out of his league. It was as though he had no idea why he was there or what he was supposed to say. Figures.

Hiya back! - yeah, I got the same exact vibe. All lost and jumpy - think he said he was at Baylor, so no telling where he came from. He's still young yet and has a ring-side seat to the biggest civics lesson he'll probably ever get in his life, so maybe one day the light bulb will go on and he'll come in from the dark side. Ya never know.

Speaking of rain, we arrived in Dallas about an hour ago. We were welcomed by a sudden thunder and lightening storm. As Chris was unloading us from the freepmobile there was a huge lightening flash and thunderclap right over our heads that startled us and set off several car alarms around us. Then a torrent of rain poured down that drenched us before we could get to the hotel door.

True, he could finally grow up someday when reality hits. I went to Baylor...was a freshman when Clinton was first elected. I don’t remember more than a couple of Clinton/Gore signs around campus (in dorm room windows, etc.). The College Repubs were alive and well (saw a couple of current ones on Greta earlier). I wonder how the campus looked last fall...how many Obarfa signs were posted on campus? I have a sneaking suspicion that it was much worse than in ‘92. Even the conservative, Christian universities aren’t immune to this idiocy. Sad.

Have a great night!
