Johnson County, KS Cap And Tax Protest

With less than 24 hours notice, and temps in the triple digits, a sizable crowd of KC area citizens showed up in front of the Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe, KS, Sat. afternoon (June 27) to protest the God-awful cap and trade bill passed by the House, yesterday.

Here are some  pix, with commentary, as always:


People had to scramble to get signs ready with less than 24 hours notice.


We attracted lots of honks, and thumbs ups…






Emmy Jo, rising star in the conservative movement….you read it here, first.


I enlisted hubby and youngest to help display signs…


They graciously obliged…


Mark those names…


Had to be said…




Who is for this?


*Boehner did his best…



If only most Americans were this informed…





Hey, I have an idea…let’s keep voting for people who will tax us into oblivion…





Obama in an uncharacteristically honest moment in Jan, 2008.


*This is good…Via The Hill:

Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) had a few choice words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) landmark climate-change bill after its passage Friday.

When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, “Hey, people deserve to know what’s in this pile of s–t.”

    Great photos! I wish I could have been there. I couldn’t go because I am on some painkillers because of some dental work I had done this week.

    I honestly felt stabbed in the back by the 8 traitors. Maybe they need to do an Arlen Spector and officially become democrats.

    Thanks, Ginger. It was hot out there, let me tell you, but worthwhile. Hope you’re feeling better, soon.

    Great pictures! Thanks for posting them.

    I saw on Ace where some troll said that this bill would only cost every American 40 dollars a year. Yeah, I know, I laughed too. But also, I had no idea that my two year old and 10 month old paid taxes. I learn something new everyday. Liberals have succeeded in dumbing down Americans.

    Ack, I thought my post didn’t go through. Sorry.

    Heh! That’s okay, I’m keeping them both ’cause they’re different.

    Thanks for the pictures, they lift our spirts. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who is (angry, depressed, afraid, mad as hell, disgusted…etc) You website and others keeps us sane. Allows for a place to vent. Thanks again.

    Too bad that the remainder of the people throughout this country have no guts. Venting is not going to do it.
