Health Care pro-con

Today in Seattle two side of the health care debate met at Westlake Center. One side was grass roots the other side was union organized, with people being bused in from faraway places like Canada and Oregon, and well funded.

Of course I came to make my stand in defense of Israel

But the “anti-government imposed health care” people began arriving around 12:30 so I had to jump around a bit.

I of course had the Street preachers to hang out with too,

These guys however do not preach the Truth.

Speaking of  a false truth, A Truther showed up.

The anti-Israel people left around 3, about the same time the Marchers arrived, so I took a few more photos, changed flags, and joined in the fun.

That’s it for today. Sorry I didn’t make a movie, but Rodger did and I might link to it when he puts it up. And there are lots of pictures on Flickr.

Update: Liberty Belle was the girl who put all this together. She deserves a big hooray!!!

She has a movie up (not Rodger's)

TEA in Monroe

Earlier this afternoon I got an e-mail and after a quick drive down Highway 2 I found myself at this great event.

May 29th 142

Seeds of Liberty is the grass roots group behind these successful events in Monroe, this was the first I was able to attend.

Unlike the anti-war protest I go to I didn’t have  the only American Flag.

The theme was the 10th amendment…

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

May 29th 028 May 29th 190 May 29th 006

Why is the 10th Amendment so important? “Liberty is the space into which governments grow.”

Now it’s time for a few of my favorite shots, remember more photos can be found on Flickr.
