I am so annoyed with the media coverage of the rally today at the State Capitol. Today was the Yes on 8 rally and there was a pretty good turn out, I think. I would guess that there were at least 300 people there. I was very happy that my friend Krissy and I took our little ones to be a part of it. We saw a few of our other friends there. The irritating thing is that there was ONE guy there on his bicycle that was loud and obnoxious. He was yelling at the Yes crowd. He was booing us and yelling "No on 8" and lots of other things. In fact, he had to be escorted by the police off the lawn at the capitol and then they had at least 6 officers on foot, bicycles and horses posted right in front of him to keep him off the property. This ONE guy got the media's attention. On the news tonight HE is all they showed!!! Just him...not the 300 people, JUST THE LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS GUY!!!! How annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am soooooo sick of the liberal media. It would really be nice to see someone report the news, what really happened, not what they wanted to happen. Then to top off their great reporting, they said that over 200, 000 Yes on 8 signs have been stolen from people's front yards and they then had the gall to say that according to the No side, they have had about that many stolen! ABOUT THAT MANY??!!?!?!? What does that mean? I want numbers...I would venture to say that only a handful have been taken on the No side, but that doesn't help their agenda, so they just add to it. UGH....I am soooo annoyed!!!!

Anyway, the rally was great. Helaman and Gloria loved shouting, "Yes on 8, Yes on 8..." There were a lot of people and I was really grateful that I live so close to the capitol and that I had a fantastic friend who went with me. I was really glad to be out doing something that would show my support!!

Funny you say this. I was watching some you tube video and they were totally biased on what they displayed of a NO and YES group of people. Of course it had to be a rational educated group of NO voters against a
group of not so educated, loud, and embarrasing YES voters. Why couldn't they show the radical,disrespectful, out of control liberalists who were invading the temple grounds and stopping traffic clear down to the freeway?

Days like this make me grateful I live in Texas! And people here hardly even know what is going on and the battle that is being fought in California. Good against Evil!

The battle has just begun. They are taking it to the US Supreme court. (They are also contesting it in California as unconstitutional. Since Prop 8 was a constitutional amendment logic will really have to get twisty to make the this case.)
