Two huge protests will be held in Washington, DC, this weekend....

Million Vet March to Reopen Memorials

Five Honor Flights will be at the Memorial on Saturday Oct. 12, including my chapter the North Country Honor Flight. We would appreciate it if in someway you could channel some of your followers to realize the WW-II Memorial is now open for Honor Flight’s WW-II veterans under a “First Ammendment” permit we have been granted. However we are still being DENIED access to the Iwo Jima Monument [Marine Corps Memorial] which is a standard stop for all Honor Flights. Do you see any way to get the word out on this and have a significant number of vets there on SATURDAY to assist us in getting access for dozens of WW-II Marine heroes who otherwise will never get the opportunity to see their monument? Also be advised there are no Honor Flights scheduled for Sunday October 13th so if any of your Million Vets want to meet the real heroes they should be at the WW-II Memorial and at Iwo the afternoon of Saturday October 12th.

Thank you.
Daniel L. Kaifetz, USMC 1970-172
Executive Director
NORTH COUNTRY HONOR FLIGHT

I don't see D.C. being too happy about this.

My heart goes out to the veterans..

The truckers...that one could be interesting.  I hope they get enough participants to actually get some coverage.  I'm afraid the MSM will spin it bad though.

If truckers can't make it to DC...maybe they should just pull the rig over for a couple of days....I'm pretty sure that people all over this country...and even around the world in some instances...will have to sit up and take notice.  Nothing moves without the truckers...whether it is from ship or rail...those truckers are what keeps commerce and products moving...

Exactly! Without truckers stores will run out of food, in three days...Yep, people will notice that. Most people only have about a week supply of food.... Another thing to consider, is one of the things their protesting is the price of diesel....That is a big deal. If the price of diesel keeps going through the roof, things will get bad for commerce.

one company in Oz has had it's fleet of a hundred or so trucks pulled and we're already experiencing fuel supply issues.
Imagine the havoc hundreds of trucks not on the road even for a day will cause.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

As Burt said, it will surely get some attention.

Whether this will be the start of another revolution, I have no clue.

I mean revolution as in a way of thinking, really.... I think a lot of people are waking up to the corruption in Washington, DC....

A revolution of the spirit and mind. :)

I agree with you. And that is what Washington fears.

They rather their constituents be distracted by Miley Cyrus and the NFL.

Won't happen. Look, imagine your a government employee. There is an 1884 law that says any spending not authorized by Congress could result in you going to jail. Are you reporting to work? I think not.

You are right. I am seeing a huge awaking in people though...  :)

I like this:

Quote

"Plays, farces, spectacles, gladiators, strange beasts, medals, pictures, and other such opiates, these were for ancient peoples the bait toward slavery, the price of their liberty, the instruments of tyranny. By these practices and enticements the ancient dictators so successfully lulled their subjects under the yoke, that the stupefied peoples, fascinated by the pastimes and vain pleasures flashed before their eyes, learned subservience as naively, but not so creditably, as little children learn to read by looking at bright picture books. Roman tyrants invented a further refinement. They often provided the city wards with feasts to cajole the rabble, always more readily tempted by the pleasure of eating than by anything else. The most intelligent and understanding amongst them would not have quit his soup bowl to recover the liberty of the Republic of Plato. Tyrants would distribute largess, a bushel of wheat, a gallon of wine, and a sesterce: and then everybody would shamelessly cry, 'Long live the King!' The fools did not realize that they were merely recovering a portion of their own property, and that their ruler could not have given them what they were receiving without having first taken it from them."

Etienne de La Boétie
Discourse on Voluntary Servitude

1548

I have to admit, the first thing that popped into my mind was, "If the truckers clog up the roads, how are the veterans going to get in to do their march?"

What a conundrum. You just found the media spin to backfire on the truckers.
