Default 9/12 March on Washington

It amazes me that the march on Washington this weekend hasn't made this forum. That a million or so folks got themselves to the Capitol to express their anger at this dolt and his congress is significant.

Not too much coverage by the US "media", which should surprise nobody. ABC in all their journalistic "integrity" "estimated" the crowd at 60-70,000.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...200971_pf.html

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09256/997695-84.stm

But the international coverage is surprisingly sparse.The UK Mail stepped up with...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worl...nstration.html

"The administration" will further ignore the will of the people if they don't get their deathcare votes by using a budgetary maneuver to shove this down our throats...

Funny that when its a liberal cause/march in DC its always "easily" hundreds of thousands or a couple million. Meanwhile, the right wing and centrists protests and it gets watered down. No media bias whatsoever, right?

Why are we considered "right wing kooks"?

I want the government to follow the Constitution of the United States. I want a balanced budget. I want the deficit spending to end. WE'RE BANKRUPT!!

I want people to earn what they have and not hold out a hand for free money.

I want less government and more freedom. Yes.... more freedom. You have an illusion of freedom right now. Every damn thing you do involves government permission.

It's not just people with "extreme views" who attended and are pissed at the government. Your average American has woken up and shouted to the government "STOP!!"

Depending upon which news outlet you watch or read, the estimates range from between fifty thousand to upwards of nearly two million attending the protest.

Sure looks like a helluva lot more than 50,000.





http://americanpowerblog.blogspot.co...2-million.html

If the higher estimates are true then this would be the largest ever single protest in the history of the United States.

So let me see if I have this correct:

Liberals protesting government = true patriotism
Conservatives/Moderates protesting goverment = just a bunch of right-wing kooks

Sound about right?

As everyone knows, the G20 summit is coming to Pittsburgh in 2 weeks, and there will be thousands of legitimate loony fringe lefty protesters. I'm willing to bet there will not be a single derogatory word uttered by anyone in the mainstream media if they get out of hand, which has a high probability of happening given recent history.

One of my favorite moments from this weekends event. CNN is doing a live remote. Notice towards the middle they start chanting "GLENN BECK".

Thats awesome. The fact the crowd drowns her out. At least CNN showed up for that.

BOO YAH!

The G-20 summit is going to bring a lot of trouble with it to da Burgh in a few weeks and I can almost guarantee the media will downplay it.
