In no particular order, here are some of the signs I read while covering Thursday's Tea Party of Spokane gathering:

- Armed and dangerous, with my vote
- Oppose Obamunism
- Liberty or Death
- Fox News for the truth
- Thanks to Obama: No jobs, TARP, bad economy, big spending, debt and default on future generations, government healthcare – killing seniors, big taxes on everyone …
- Get the UN out of Spokane
- Stimulus: Audacity of dopes
- End the Fed
- Socialists, spreading the wealth! Since 1917 (with pictures of Obama with Mao, Stalin, Lenin and Marx)
- I am not a wacko
- Socialism and Marxism are in our White House
- Taxes, no thanks. Tax the banks
- Education, not indoctrination
- No more red ink
- Who is John Galt?
- We are John Galt!
- Obama: Commander in Thief
- Patty Murray, your (sic) fired!
- Endowed by our creator
- We don’t support Chris Marr (this likely is in response to comments reported in this Inlander article)
- Liberty yes! Palin no!
- Obama: Bow to the American people
- What Osoma (sic) couldn’t do, Obama is doing
- You can’t have entrepreneurs and eat them too!
- Obama’s senior healthcare advisor: Jack Kevorkian (this was held by George McGrath, who often testifies at Spokane City Council meetings)
