Rein in the IRS Protest, East Lansing MI

Warm and overcast, threat of thunderstorms here today.



There were 25 - 30 very polite people, some couldn't stay long so we averaged about 25 at any given time. Many drove an hour or more to attend. Most were older, but there was a 2 year old with his mother, and these young ladies. Nice to see. They're all home-schooled, by the way.


We were not allowed on the private property wherein the IRS rents its office space, so we marched up and down West Road in front of the building.

The building manager was nervous, perhaps frightened, and quickly escalated from a firm but polite eviction speech to threatening to call the police. He didn't, but his mannerisms when he got to that point (about 30 seconds) were quite agitated. I don't think he understands who it is that shows up for tea party protests.

It wouldn't have taken long for the police to arrive. There were 2 squad cars the entire time (some others cruised through) and a Homeland Security vehicle.



Update: Thanks to Instapundit for the link.
