Sacramento: First Stop on Tea Party Express

Nice Deb has a report, "Sacramento Tea Party August 28."

Also, from the Fresno Bee, "'Tea Party Patriots' stage rally: Sacramento protest targets government":

There was no doubting who the enemy was at Friday's "Tea Party Patriots" rally at the Capitol.

"Government is the problem!" the crowd chanted. "No more government!"

The event, the second "tea party" held at the Capitol this year, was billed as a "first-time coalition of thousands to protest government over-regulation."

Valley farmers -- some brought their tractors -- repeated their long-running call against delta pumping restrictions that they say are robbing them of water.

Diesel truck drivers, revving their engines, circled the Capitol, protesting new clean-air regulations that owners say will cost them millions of dollars to replace older trucks. And a Valley congressman went on the attack against the environmentalists he said were to blame for it all.
Plus, Southern Belle is excited:
I am on the Tea Party Express now headed to Reno ... Today is the first day of a historic journey of taking our message to Washington.

I have lots to share and will update in more detail after our next stop in Reno. I have taken lots of pictures and videos to share with you all. We have just crossed the Nevada state line and don't have very good internet service, so I will upload pics later this evening. Be sure to check back!

Right now, all I can say is I am blessed to be part of such a historic event. Thank you for all of your support and well wishes! Wow! Wow! Wow!
