Signs, Signs, Signs: Tax Day TEA rally in downtown WPB

On April 15th, nearly 750 anti-tax rallies took place across the country where crowds of frustrated, mostly conservative protestors gathered to send a message back to Washington D.C. The event paid homage to the historic Boston Tea Party of 1773, and was prompted by Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC when he called for a “Chicago Tea Party” to protest President Obama’s spending policies. Over 1,000 people crowded downtown West Palm Beach for the TEA party, or Tax Enough Already rally, including several students and plenty of alumni.

Senior Nick Byrd was on the scene and sent us his favorite pictures of the event including shots of some very interesting signs.
