Hi guys! Ms. A gave me permission to do a Saturday Special, since Monday’s post was assembled before this Grand Plan Of The Tea Party Grassy-roots came to fruition.
What Grand Plan, you ask?
‘Truckers for the Constitution’ Plan to Slow D.C. Beltway, Arrest Congressmen US News & World Report ^ | October 7, 2013 | By Steven Nelson

Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for the protest, told U.S. News tractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway “three lanes deep” as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution. “We want these people arrested, and we’re coming in with the grand jury to do it,” he said. “We are going to ask the law enforcement to uphold their constitutional oath and make these arrests. If they refuse to do it, by the power of the people of the United States and the people’s grand jury, they don’t want to do it, we will. … We the people will find a way.”

Ain’t she a beautiful sight?Of course, the Freeperati are always hopeful that their AR-15 clones and those ammo stockpiles will finally justify their families going without food to pay for them:To: LucianOfSamasota
Or just the provocation Barry needs to cry “Insurrection” and call out the brownshirts?To: Buckeye McFrogOr just the provocation Barry needs to cry “Insurrection” and call out the brownshirts?
And then that in turn would be the provocation WE need to declare civil war and call out the hordes of armed to the teeth patriots…To: Buckeye McFrogOr just the provocation Barry needs to cry “Insurrection” and call out the brownshirts?
Good! Just like Damocles I am tired of looking up at the sword. Let’s finish this.30 posted on Monday, October 07, 2013 3:49:50 PM byraybbr (I weep over my sons’ future in this Godforsaken country.)WOLVERINES!!!1!For more, follow me below the 10-14, good buddy!
.Of course, some of the Freeperati are skeptical, and some seem almost cognizant of the real world:To: Fireone
I’d like to know who came up with the leftard fantasy of arresting congressmen.To: Fireone
Have you ever driven the beltway? Sometimes during the day 5 MPH is considered making good time…3 posted on Monday, October 07, 2013 8:36:39 PM bycentral_va (I won’t be reconstructed and I do not give a damn.)To: Fireone

Reminds me of Gomer Pyle on Andy: “citizens array-yest…citizens array-yest…citizens array-yest…”But hope springs infernal!To: C. Edmund WrightWell hell yeah. Let’s not do anything confrontational. We can just post pictures of a book that has had no effect on the leftist takeover of our country .this site had better take a look at who is GOPe and who is serious.Yowza! It’s time for another purge! One that will make the Chris Christie supporters (when he gets the 2016 nomination) look like a maypole dance!To: Nervous Tick
Why are there posters trying to belittle this? I believe any thumb to the eye of this administration is a noble act. Something is wrong.In any event, let’s cut to the great trucker showdown!To: Farnsworth
Another shutdown? Some 10,000 truckers expected in DC3 posted on Thursday, October 10, 2013 8:30:09 AM bysheikdetailfeather (Yuri Bezmenov (KGB Defector) – “Kick The Communists Out of Your Govt. & Don’t Accept Their Goodies.”)To: sheikdetailfeather

Watching 495 traffic cams on trafficland.com. Nothing looks out of the ordinary. Will be in the vicinity late tonight. Curious to see what is going on. Boss already told me stay off 495. He was told pics will be taken and expect FMCSA audits if your truck is in one. Wouldn’t put it past this regime. A truck is a rolling billboard for the company.To: Lucky9teen
That pix is from Hagerstown, probably not shocking since the interstates are very popular for trucks in the Appalachians.
Report on FOX that looks like a dud. Ironically were truckers scared by the awful rain? Or just a dud, period? I can say they picked a hell of a day and would totally muck up things if they came.
As they said hopefully on FOX, there is still time.53 posted on Friday, October 11, 2013 7:51:08 AM bythe OlLine Rebel (Common sense is an uncommon virtue./Technological progress cannot be legislated.)To: Lucky9teen; ntnychik; PhilDragoo
Thank you, thank you! I’ve been checking the TV channels and not finding anything. Sadly I found a link on Drudge that says ‘dozens, not thousands of trucks.…’, but I’m hoping it’s too early to judge yet.To: nascarnation
Don’t get too excited… has the number of thirty trucks been CONFIRMED yet? We need confirmation of 30 trucks (or at least 28) before you start tooting your own horn.Four’s a pretty amusing number as well.And then…To: Lucky9teen
Nice photos but at least two of those photos being spread on twitter and posted repeatedly were taken from other unrelated events in the past.
The second photo is from a Make-a-Wish rally in May 2013 where hundreds of trucks showed up in support of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
The fifth photo is from a Super Rig Rally held in Joplin, Missouri June 5, 2012.So – let’s sum up.Out of the Million Truckers touted – 30 or so actually show up.Of those 30 – exactly FOUR display civil disobedience by lining up abreast and slowing traffic.All four are pulled over by the police.Are they shot by the Brownshirts? Whisked away to Gitmo lest millions rise up to support them?Nope. They got a lecture from the police about not being dicks, and let go.Not even a ticket.Bloody revolution just isn’t what it used to be.Next up from the wingnuts – the Million Moron March!!Now, that they can probably achieve – if they can be presuaded to get up from behind their keyboards…We now return you to your regularly scheduled First Draft.%d bloggers like this:
