Why would you expect someone to support Obama just because they're black?

From the feedback I heard from friends who attended, it was a very successful rally, that the very large crowd tried to clean up after themselves as they left the area.

3 hr of CSPAN coverage of the event www.cspan.org...

Ariel video of the crowd

Yes, this is way to engage fellow citizens who have opposing political views. Bill Maher pulls the liberal string and the liberal dances, dance puppet, dance.

You do realize, Bill Maher is at best a marginal comedian with a second rate 'commentary' show that caters to radical entertainers from the very far left. You realize, Ashton, Demi, Billy boy, and Oprah don't care about you, right? You are as Stalin termed, a useful idiot. Not disparaging your intellect in anyway.

@Next_Heap_With and others who would scoff at the civil rights march( beacuse that's what we are ultimately fighting for, our rights as people who are separate from the politicians)

As one of the protesters' sign read, this swarming of people around the capitol of the USA is not about "leftism" or "rightism" or any other political fabrication designed to divide people. It is a very loud statement that says

"We are extremely pissed off that blanket decisions are being made for the whole counrty, which we see as severly undermining our sense of justice and quality of life and YOU NEED TO STOP AND LISTEN TO US NOW! STOP TAKING OUR MONEY AND USING IT AGAINST US!"

At least that's what I would have been saying had I been there. Thank you Tea Party'ers!

I have just one question. If these people are so concerned about the way the government is handling things, where were they during the Bush administration?

What amazes me is how the MSM continues to marginalize the movement as fringe. According to some folks count there were more than 1 million people in DC today.

So, for every one of those, there are likely 5-10 more that either couldn't or wouldn't go to DC but are supporters of the Tea Party movement. And likely another 10-12 million that are on the fence and feeling the pressure of our corrupt government, corrupt on both sides of the aisle, mind you!

This is how revolutions are born. A segment of the population, angered by injustice, and marginalized by the powers that be!

The same place they are now, the only difference was that those of you who still think Obama is the best thing since sliced bread were complaining about Bush & Co right beside the rest of us.

It's only now, that you don't agree with us that you think you never saw us before.

For the most part, I thought President Bush did a great job.

You assume I am an Obama supporter just because of that one question. You lump me in with a group in the same manner you assume I lump you in a group.

I thought it was a valid question. I don't remember people protesting like this during the Bush administration. The only protests I remember were the anti-war ones.

Great pics! Thanks!

On my local radio, somebody said the crowd was about 1 million and that was early in the day.

Maybe you were distracted and missed it????

Google search results of Bailout Protests

Google Search results of "Anti-Bush" Protests

They were happening. I don't know if you were unaware of them due to the MSM not reporting on them, or due to other things in life distracting you from noticing, but they were happening.

Yes, it seems the MSM had their head up their ... when it came to that. Maybe it just seems that the recent tea party protests are getting more coverage. I definitely am hearing quite a bit about them.

Great Job Sdog. Is it just me or was that a bunch of white people.
What was your take on the participation of minorities?


Mmm ok ...

I'm just going to tell you what I saw and I have no way of knowing people's heritage.

Keeping that in mind it would be accurate to state that the crowd was predominantly caucasian.

It should also be noted that the event was very family oriented with folk of all ages.


Yeah I was struck dumb by how multicultural that crowd was.

Where were they when BUSH-jalsjogaualjgalkg ;oihggajo;gjaerjg

I could not say what I wanted to say. Hello kraken, endisnighe here, for your information I have been opening eyes to the Two Party Paradigm since my father (AF Major-N. Korea and Vietnam Vet) opened my eyes when I was 10-32 years ago. Have not paid taxes since Reagan stole the Social Security Funds and began this downward spiral. Sorry for your upbringing, I am sure your parents never taught you anything about politicians. The only place you probably learned anything, was in public schools. Was your favorite class social problems taught by some left wing nut?

This thread is about people coming together against tyranny. Here is a quote for you.



"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace.We seek not your counsel or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!"


Any ideas who said it or what it means?

Nice job SD.


I also went to a tea party in my local. I find the whole tea party movement hypocritical, but when it comes to politics, what else is new? It was an interesting experience none the less.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

There is no left or right. There is only the CFR.

And no election is going to change things folks. We heard calls for impeachment andd new elections during Bush reign of terror. Obama steps in for "change" but of course thats all a lie. He is just another patsy of the globalist elite.

Tomorrow if a nuclear bomb wiped out all of washington and we held a new election, the elite would ensure a new round of sleazebags got elected.

Its about money folks. it corrupts and will always help the elite find a person willing to step on some throats to get power and wealth.

You want change ? its not going to come from any election or revolution. We have to change the root cause of all our troubles and that begins with the monetary system.

we have plenty of resources to feed, house, education, build hospitals, and clothe the whole world. money is just a tool to prevent that via artificial scarcity.

America is not socialist..but it SHOULD BE!!!


USA is 80% of the way to becoming Socialist, Obama's admin will move it to 95%. This is why we are protesting to stop and reverse this and go back to minimal government.

What is minimal government?

On a local level: Police, Fire, water, sewer, roads

On a Federal Level, the Constitution says military and post office only. Expansions for federal which would parallel local government would be Federal police (Border Patrol, FBI, CIA, NSA), federal parks, land ad fire fighting, water resources, federal roadways.

Private business (capitalism) provides other competitive services and government pays the bills, not participates in the business.

Redistribution of wealth in the nemesis of capitalism.

Losers, those who choose not to work in the USA, can get over $22,000 per year of services from the various governmental agencies (housing, food, health care, child care, etc.)
