About 500 protesters of runaway government spending turned out in force Saturday for the Nevada County Tea Party, according to organizer Stan Meckler.

“It was an amazing, patriotic event,” Meckler said. “We’re not against taxes — we believe they should be spend appropriately, and that’s the politicians’ job.

“We don’t talk about social issues,” Meckler said, noting that people at the Tea Party came from all walks of life and beliefs. “We want to influence politicians to watch the money more closely and not spend what we don’t have. . . . The Nevada County Tea Party Patriots now plan to march in the Grass Valley Fourth of July parade, Meckler said. After that, the group will join a national effort “to look at candidates we want to support and those we don’t.”

These things just keep popping up, beneath the national-media radar. Here’s more from Kalamazoo, and Orangeburg, S.C. Plus this from Dallas-Fort Worth.
