Happy hump day everyone and a very happy Veteran's Day to all those who have served our great country and to those who are currently serving today. May God's peace be with you all!
FW attended another Tea Party last week in Washington DC. Did you hear about the event? About 20,000 tea partiers gathered in Washington on November 5, 2009 at the request of Conservative Rep. Michelle Bachmann to rally against the Democratic written health care overhaul. Many congressmen and women spoke at the rally right out front of the Capitol Building. Protestors wanted to make sure their elected officials knew how they felt about the trillion-dollar health care bill. According to FW, it was a well attended and organized event.
