TEA PARTY EXPRESS II GRAND FINALE IN ORLANDO - THURSDAY!

The Tea Party Express launched from San Diego on October 25th, and has crossed the country holding Tea Party rallies in support of conservative principles. More than 50,000 people have participated in the tea party rallies during this tour alone. The Tea Party Express II slogan, Countdown to Judgment Day refers to the one-year mark ahead of the 2010 congressional elections.

The Tea Party Express II caravan features two 44-foot coaches along with a group of several support vehicles, and will host rallies with conservative speakers and singers. These stops are part of a national tour that has spaned 19 days, 40 cities, and covered more than 8,000 miles. The tour marks the one-year point from the 2010 elections, when numerous members of Congress will be targeted for defeat as a result of their support of higher deficits, growth in the size and intrusiveness of government, higher taxes, bailouts and more.
Here are the details on the Tea Party Express Rally in Orlando, Florida:
Thursday, 6:00pm: Orlando
Lake Eola Park

The Tea Party Express II is a 19-day, 8,000-mile plus journey across the country with a caravan of vehicles holding tea party rallies in 40 cities across America. The Tea Party Express is advocating for less government spending, an end to the bailouts, lower taxes, opposition to government-run healthcare and opposition to the growth in the size and intrusiveness of government in general.
Free Republic helped arrange this rally, and will have a booth.
Plus there will be flyovers by the Free Republic Airforce with various banners to read throughout the rally.
Check in on this thread if you are going to be there!
See you there!
I didn’t know FR had an Air Force:)
i havbe pics from the rally in hollyhill/daytona yesterday....they are on a cd, can anyone email me with instructions on how to post them here...
It was created by Florida Free Republic people way back I believe in the Clinton administration.
Seeking The Truth, 0 cents Gene was one of the driving forces behind it's operation back then
Free Republic Air Force Strikes. "I had the pleasure of being at the ... (You remember Gene-he was the original Florida Free Republic Air Force captain! ...
Hopefully someone will have time to help you with that!
That is really too cool for words :)
Once you have an account just follow the directions to up load pictures from your computer. Once you have your pictures up loaded all you have to do is hover over a picture you want to put in a post on FR. When you hover over the picture Photobucket automaticaly creats a drop down that has a list of HTML code that you use to post your pictures. In that drop down list choose the third option down. Copy the code there and paste it directly into your FR post.
It sounds complicated but it is very easy and straight foward.
One thing to remember is once you put a picture on Photobucket and then use the code to post the picture here at FR you must leave the picture in that same location. If you decide, in the future, to move the Photo you will break the link here at FR and get the dreaded Red X in the box.
I had hoped to get there yesterday, but was an hour and 40 minutes away and I’ve got a problem with my retina, so I didn’t want to take a chance. Hope you can get the pictures up...please let me know if you do!
Was great to see you guys in DC in September! Will be great to see you again tonight in Orlando! Whoo Hoo!
Let’s see if they hear us now: “NO WE WON’T”
We got our own airforce?!?! Kool! Make sure the guvment don’t know, they’ll use as a reason to arrest us all for anti-guvment action! We know we’re already on their radar.....Forget about the Muslin Radicals it’s FR/’teabaggers’ they gunning for!
The new application will be pulling banners that can be programmed from the plane to change the message.
It's gonna be awesome!
Thanks for the link, I didn't see that thread
We’ll be there, in all of our Red, White and Blue Glory! See ya there.
Look for Van Jones---who's hot to to give jobs to incarcerated criminals---to have Ohaha hire them to come after conservatives.
After all, jailbirds know how to use violence, force and deadly weapons.
You’re welcome! See ya after bit!
I'll be wearing a red Free Republic hat

I’ve been around FreeRepublic long enough to remember the “Clinton Resign” flying banner at the Superbowl in Florida. I helped solicit donations for that one.

“I had the pleasure of being at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show today, October, 28, 2000.
At approximately 3:30 P.M. EST a banner plane flew overhead pulling a banner for literally thousands of people to see.
A truly glorious site to see! The banner read “BENEDICT ARNOLD GORE: SOLD U.S. SECRETS FOR $$$”...

Leaving for Orlando in about 45 minutes. We’re going to help get set up at the event. See ya there.
Great! See you all there when I can get free. bttt
If my memory serves me correctly, if you look hard enough you’ll see the insidious hand of Gonzo behind many of those Clinton-era sorties by the Free Republic Air Force.
For your information, FR also had a Navy around the same time.
Where you was? ?:-|
I was there! Where were you?
I spent most of the time hanging out at the FR table where Jim Robinson, etal were. Will try and post some of the pictures I took if I can figure out how to upload them to photobucket, etc.
May have to send some out by email first. :)
Mcmuffin called me a little bit ago from Nevada to find out how the rally went. He had a family reunion to attend out there and was really disappointed that he couldn’t make the rally in Orlando this time (even though he did get to go to the one held in Holly Hill on Wednesday.)
After a great time at dinner with Jim and a lot of other FReepers at the Embassy Suites down the street, we hung out together in a FReeper’s room. I got home about 3 am. :)
Hmmmm... curious; my son and I stayed until JimRob arrived, sat at the FR booth a while but Quentin had been up since 4 a.m. and was chilled by that damp cold wind so we went home... perhaps you came later.
Hi Bob! I think that is just what happened. Matchett-PI came just a little later.
It sure was cold, but what a great rally! Thanks Matchett for the pictures you sent. We are looking forward to seeing more pictures, and also any vieo that was taken of the program!
The program was wonderful, but I must say Florida Freeper Mike Evers sure was a huge crowd pleaser! But then we knew he would be!
And then there were those great flyovers by none other than our fantastic Florida FReeper Air Force!
Until we were asked to be quiet....and then moved to another room!
Some folks bailed before this picture was taken. I'll get more pics up as I get them uploaded.
Oops! Didn’t mean to leave you out of the mix. I know I’ve forgotten someone else.
Glad everyone had a safe trip home, and sure JimRob and all will too!
No pictures or videos of the grand finale?
That’s ok, your picture didn’t post anyhow, for some reason. :)
I don’t have an internet account (like photobucket)yet, so I can’t post any of the pictures I took until I get the time to set one up and then try and figure out how to use it.
In the meantime, if you want to give me your personal email address by freemail, I can send you some pictures.
No internet account such as photobucket needed.
Mike was on fire! We told him his FR handle should be “Red Meat!”

Many Floridians got to hear Mike speak in Sarasota last June when his speech was red meat on the educational side. In other words he informed the crowd about corruption and the kinds of dirty dealings that go on behind the scenes in politics.
Now in Orlando we got to see Mike fire up the crowd to get the job done in 2010! It was obvious the crowd though he was awesome too!
though = thought
I know lots of FReepers were taking pictures so hope to see them posted soon. :)
Thank you for keeping me in the loop! I appreciate the great job you are doing and all of the truths you have shared!
Good seeing you again MIke!
Thanks again for asking me to speak at the rally. Even with all the snafus, we got the job done. Next time, WE need to control the agenda to ensure that all the bases are covered. This is no time to let amateurs lead us into battle.
We’ve lined up Lt. Col. Allen West for an evening fundraising event here in Sarasota Dec. 15. He can win District 22 and take back a seat from the Dems. But he needs $$$ to be viable, and more exposure around the state and the nation. Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend. If you thought I can throw out red meat, wait until you see Col. West toss it out. He makes me look like a choir boy.
