Kansas City Tax Day Tea Party @ Liberty Memorial

This one was huge.  Organizers say there were 4 to 5000 people, which sorta jives with the KC Star, which says “over 4000”. The protest started at 4:00 in the afternoon, and the weather was perfect; close to 70 degrees.

Here are the first few pictures emailed to me from Ginger.

Kudos to Americans for Prosperity for putting on a world class tea party. Great job, guys!

Okay, at this point, I had to run…I had one more tea party to go to, but first we had to stop and refuel, take a potty break, and get some chow.

Next stop – Johnson County Community College in Overland Park!

Dee from Conservatism With Heart gave a great speech at this tea party, video here.

And here’s keynote speaker, 710’s morning talker, Chris Stigall:

The Lee’s Summit Tax Day Tea Party

I’m in between tea parties, right now, so I’m going to have to make this quick. There was a great turnout for such a last minute, and not heavily promoted  noon hour event. Nice Deb isn’t good at crowd guesstimates, but I would say there were between 300 and 400 people there for some great speeches, and musical entertainment.

This particular protest was planned by a couple of local moms, who, contrary to what tea party critics like  this numbnut in the Kansas City Star may think, are not  leaders of some Republican organization, but were provoked into action by the disastrous deficit spending we’ve all been witnessing coming out of Washington.

So without further ado, here are some pictures from The Lee’s Summit Tea Party, which was most definitely a grass roots event!:

No trolls, or agent provocateurs in this group!

Here’s a few clips of the Lee’s summit tea party from the video I took:
