500 in Overland Park brave cold, wind to protest stimulus, pork

Police estimated at least 500 braved windy, 23-degree weather in Overland Park to protest the pork in the stimulus.  Liberty-minded, free-market Americans met outside of Congressman Dennis Moore’s Office in Overland Park to protest his votes to waste tax dollars.

Michelle Malkin’s web site first announced this event on Thursday.   A stay-at-home mom, Amanda Grosserode, is organizing a grass-root movement in fiscal responsibility from Seattle to Denver to Mesa to Overland Park.  Local Kansas groups like AFP and KRA alerted their members about the event.  Darla Jaye on 980 KMBZ talked about the planned event last night.
