Another batch of the Fabulous "Tea Party of all Tea Party" pictures (Part 2). Lots of pictures of the Capitol and the crowd once we got here
But it was slow because the crowd was HUGE. At first, the police kept the crowd off 3rd street. Funneled us on one path to the Capitol. However, when it was apparent the crowd was SO LARGE, they permitted us to use 3rd to walk to the Capitol. Flash didn't go off so we didn't get a clear picture of the Police on horseback holding us back. (It'll show up better when the video is posted)
Later on this area will be JAMMED:
Had to use zoom to get a close view of the stage and the speakers:
We got some shots around the pool:
Lots of posters and the people!
All of whom were calm and positive BUT also very, very determined to get their messages across:
No MOB mentality that I saw, just Americans, young and old, who had come together in common cause.
We can Fix it if we try.
This one poster says it all:
America must STOP the madness
