St. Louis Tea Party Celebrates One Year Anniversary

Be at the St. Louis Arch today, Saturday, February 27, at 1:30 p.m. The rally will last for one hour. Participants will hear from a small group of speakers before dumping tea leaves into the Mississippi River.

We are admonished to remove the tea from, and properly dispose, all bags. We are also told: "No pitchforks." Also, signs cannot have sticks or poles. No problem. My experience of the Tea Party rallies that I've gone to in the past is that people know how to "behave." When the Tea Partiers took their march to Washington, D.C., they left the mall cleaner than when they found it. The weapon of choice for us seems to be the video camera. There will be a lot of those. Hope to see you there.

Update. One of my favorite blogs,, has photos from the rally today. Looks like they had a good crowd.

Gateway Pundit also has a report plus video.

Update. Another one of my favs, SharpElbows, now has video and photos of the event posted on his site. Sharp has been one of the St. Louis Tea Party group's main videographers for the past year. He always has good stuff. The Tea Partiers are here to stay. Deal with it.

Oh, and P.S. The people behind the websites and SharpElbows are young, bright conservatives, as are a lot of other "Tea Party People." What a hopeful sign for our country to see people like these getting involved in government on a grass roots level. Maybe one of these days the lamestream media will start covering these events--start showing up and using their "journalism" skills--and get a clue about what's going on here.

Update. Video from the St. Louis Tea Party site.
