The Pensacola News Journal reports on a Memorial Day event: Protesters steamed over government

About 60 people gathered on a north Pensacola roadside Memorial Day afternoon to speak out against a wide variety of government policies.

The “tea party”-style event went on near the intersection of Creighton Road and North Ninth Avenue from noon to 2 p.m.

Demonstrators’ emotions ranged from patriotism to outrage as they displayed protest signs and waved to passing cars.

Complaining about the taxes you pay on a day dedicated to people who have paid the ultimate price is not patriotic, but it is an outrage.

that’s a favorite intersection of the wingnuts, and they always seem to import them from scratchankle to come and demonstrate in my city.

That must be annoying, to have your area polluted by “outside agitators” imported to cause trouble.

I noticed that all of the beaches went to yellow flags today, after the visitors left. Sounds like a locals conspiracy to me. 😉

Perhaps it’s just a hope that the “outside agitators” will feel drawn to try the water…

Hey, what do you have against the life guards. It has never ceased to amaze me how many locals never learned how to swim. They go fishing from boats on the rivers, and visit the Gulf, but they just don’t know how to swim.

It may be evolution at work.

[shhhhhhhhh, don’t let the cat out of the bag]

milton’s not a very big town, i suppose they do actually have to come here to get an audience, but still, i wish they wouldn’t.

If they want an audience they should rent the Saenger and prove their private enterprise credentials.
