Yep with so many old white Americans, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow will be pissed off that the Tea Party doesn’t practice “diversity”.

Of course, MSNBC doesn’t practice diversity either. But they will never talk about that.

Another thank you for the uplifting pictures. My blue state has been full of protests FOR the health care bill. Paper full of letters to the editor promoting the bill. Sickening.

Heard that ABC now admitting to 50,000 for Tea Party

200 people showed up for Reid

Of course he could have used those 35 egg throwers at his rally but he made the sacrifice.

Great pictures! Thanks for the report. And thanks for the warning about dial-up. I no longer am hampered by dial-up, but it reminded me of the days of Mia T. Loved the postings, but once I realized I had clicked on a Mia T post, I just went downstairs to wash the dishes and put in a load of laundry. It was going to be that long. I FINALLY learned to check.

That's gotta make Harry feel good! Tha phakin commie whore deserves to be stomped into the mud.

Maybe Nazi Pelosi will start telling him how worthwhile it is to get your electoral azz handed to you so long as you get to support the Kenyans Destruction of America Tour.

I can confirm the traffic South of the event on US 95 was backed up for miles. Through the town of Searchlight and onward. I turned West in Seachlight in order to get back on I15 to go home. The turn out was amazing. I don’t know about North of the event but I think some of the pictures posted by Ron is North of the event. Just unbelievable.

If it wasn’t for us old, white people, most of you would not be here! :)

LOL

I have 5 kids, 15 grandkids and a great great - So I'm responsible for my share.

but seriously, loss of respect for the elders has gone a long way towards eroding our society

GREAT PHOTOS RON! Wish we could have gotten together! It took me an hour and a half just to get out...cars backed up for miles going towards Vegas. Going the other way it was a breeze!!! What a great day! Although I have a terrible sunburn!

I’m surprised the local cops didn’t write tickets for all the cars parked on the side of the road. They would be doing it “for the children”, of course.

They aren’t parked. They’re waiting to get in to park. Our bus passed 2 miles of cars waiting to get in.

Yep, I was on the North end, in fact that first pic with the Firebird in it is me when I first got there. I was about a half mile North of the entrance.

When I left and started driving back toward Vegas, the parking on both sides of the road continued for another 2.7 miles, I clocked it.

Like you said AMAZING!! The whole day really lifted my spirits.

I have made an official count for CNN.
Based on the photos, it is 42.
All those others were obviously cleverly photoshopped.

Harry Reid is so outta there.

What about that fake "Tea Party" candidate Scott Ashjian? Whorealdo had him on live tonight, and he's got me worried that a split in the parties will get Reid re-elected.

Thank you both for your awesome threads and photos today, Las Vegas Ron and Hildy! :o)

"News reports said 8 miles of cars backed up!"

Average car is about 16.4 feet long.

5,280 feet in a statute mile.

Gives you about 322 cars bumper to bumper per mile. Call it 300 for gaps and road crossings etc.

That's 2400 cars in a single lane. If that's a 4 lane then you are talking 9600 Cars for 8 miles and I am willing to bet at least two people per car and that is just the people stuck in traffic.

19200 peeps stuck on the road waiting to get in which means there was already people at the destination. Easily 20,000 people if the 8 mile traffic jam is credible.

I saw that too, the guy is a real slime ball.

I guess we'll have to work hard at getting the word out, FWIW, so far he is getting nothing but negative press here, even in the LVRJ.

I wish the photographer had climbed one of those hills for a a top down angle.

Yeah, my husband kept saying: WHY isn't there an aerial photo of the crowd??

It would have been cool to see all those people - from the air - gathered in the middle of the desert.

Can you estimate how many people were there? CNN said "hundreds", Fox reporter Casey Stegall said "over 10,000", and I think Politico said 20,000.

I sure hope you're right, Ron. Ashjian told Whorealdo he was "up by 20 points" (I think he said that), Whorealdo corrected him and said "no, you're up by 10 points".

Yikes, what happened to the REAL Republican candidate? I got the impression that Ashjian was indeed climbing in the polls.

I think what happened in NY-23 was a whole lot of voter confusion. I hope the word gets out about Ashjian by election day...

GREAT photos... glad you had such a good time today! :o)

"Former US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin speaks at a Tea Party rally in Searchlight, Nevada, the hometown of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, on March 27, 2010. Thousands of Tea Party activists attended the rally which kicks off their latest cross-country protest against big government and health care reform."

10,000 people at this event, and my local ABC News gave more coverage time to six people in a diner in Manhattan, meeting as The Coffee Party. They were each interviewed and each denounced the violence of the Tea Party.

The unborn and the ageed, including the obliteration of God and the belittling of dad. The only way back is to repent our many sins, and turn from them then to open our hearts to tje Lord Jesus. Our nation was based on Him. He gave us the most wonderful freedom and prosperity in history. Pray for the salvation of those who would do us harm. If Saul, before he turned from his evil ways became St. Paul, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barrack Obama and their ilk can chaange, too. Now that’s what I would call real change for the better!

That is a good estimate. It would be impossible to get a single picture of the total attendance because of all the “Old white folks”. I’m an OWG and I could only stay about an hour. As I was leaving, there was still a strong flow of new comers. I could only park 1 mile down the road (knowing my walking limits) so I decided to triple park in front of several other cars off the side. When I returned to my car, the people were waiting to leave also and were very friendly about it. How great it is to walk among so many good people and Patriots that only want what is best for our country. The country that I fought for in VN. Sorta takes the edge off of my disappointment.
