Well my wife and I took a little trip yesterday to a place called "outside our comfort zone." At the age of 50 [me anyway, I'm not saying how old my wife is] we participated in our first protest! The protest was a TEA [Taxed Enough Already] Party in our hometown of Baytown, Texas. The main idea was to protest the excessive, uncontrolled, and wasteful spending of our elected officials in Washington and about 500 citizens of Baytown showed up to have their voices heard. I don't know whether these TEA Parties, which were held around the country, will be the catalyst that quells the desire of many on the left to follow our new President into full-blown Socialism or not. But my wife and I left the event uplifted and feeling that we had participated in something that was at best an historic event, or at least a message to other conservatives that they are not alone. God bless the United States of America!

Nice environmental portrait!

I hope you have some more shots from this event to share!

If the TEA Parties ending up leading to some positive changes then those of us who didn't participate will owe you a debt of gratiture. Well done!
