Photos From a Teabagging in Biloxi

Last Saturday, there was a teabagging in Biloxi, Mississippi. As much as I wanted to go photograph it, I was bogged down with work and unable to do so. Fortunately, one of our readers made it with camera in hand. Userjack6880 got some great pictures of the event. This one to the right is probably my favorite of the many signs photographed, but there are many good ones.

From the many pictures in userjack6880's collection, it looks like the teabagging was split between those protesting taxes and those protesting Obama. It was interesting to see how many signs referenced patriotism in one way or another.

Also, here are some notes taken during one of the speeches:
State's rights, too much government, Christian values are undermined, school books are not the same as they used to be, this is a war for freedom, traditional values, Christian values, and American values (connecting them all together, that is), we don't owe anybody anything - in fact, they owe us, GM should fail if it cannot support itself without the help of the government, the healthcare system will fail because of this new bill, abortion is a continuing battle (in support for), Obama's hope is a false hope, Obama is making this nation a tyrannical one, government corruption, the government has a clear disconnect with Mississippi, the US is the world's last hope.
That sounds about right.
