"No More Pork!"

Can't put lipstick on a pig . . .

An unexpected guest of honor!

Approximately 500-750 people showed up to the state capitol in Denver to say: "No More Pork!"

More from Michelle Malkin, the great El Marco, and wall-to-wall coverage from Peoples Press Collective. Face the State has a recap and slideshow, and Free Colorado has even more photos and audio/transcript of the rally.

While the videos are uploaded to YouTube (video of every speaker will be available shortly), here are scenes from the raucous anti-stimulus rally:

Change we aren't too sure about.

Independence Institute President and featured speaker, Jon Caldara

Mortgaging our children's future, another popular theme.

You can say that again.

Before long, they'll want that too!

The signs were varied, but unlike lefty protests, they actually made sense.

We'll our children will just pay it later . . .

We agree.

Michael Huttner of ProgressNow Colorado (you can Google the link) couldn't pass up the free publicity.

Michelle Malkin serves the masses.

Not good change, that's for sure!

To the tune of at least $787 billion

More to come . . .
