Medford, Oregon Tea Party

Just got back from the Medford, "tea party" on the front steps of the Jackson County Court House. There was a very large crowd that spilled across the street to the lawn of the old Carnegie Library. There were a lot of signs and placards of people protesting the increase in government and taxes both on the national and state level. Most of the signs and placard's were home made. A local radio personality with an amplified sound system got the crowd wound up with a message of how proud he was to be an American. The group formed earlier this morning in a parking lot in downtown Medford next to a Chinese restaurant and marched the 8 to 10 blocks to the Courthouse. We are silent no more!
