Great report! And great pics too! Where'd all those floating green arrows come from? Can you pick those up at Walmart?

Great pics. In a couple of the pics, there is a moonbat holding up a sign that reads "2323." What is that suppose to mean?

Thanks for the thanks! I just got tired of taking pictures of the same old hippies on the opposite side. Maybe they could bring some new CUTE hippies…

Anyway, there were actually 208 pictures altogether! ALL were either honkers or wavers or yellers. It was just that most had their windows rolled up and the glare was just too harsh to see anything inside the cars. I’ll try this again sometime between cold winter and hot summer when the windows are more likely to be down.

Yes, BufordP, the arrows came from Walmart -- I have some red ones too!

I hope the following doesn’t constitute “hijacking” but it has to do with the 2323 sign.

I ran across a table of military deaths (with causes) for the years 1980 – 2004 on FR last week. Some of it may surprise you -- it did me.

Here's a link to the table's .pdf file:

Military Deaths Table

Here's who was President in the years listed

Carter - 1980 (the last year of his term)
Reagan - 1981 - 1988
George HW Bush - 1989 - 1992
Clinton - 1993 - 2000
George W Bush - 2001 - 2004

I converted the .pdf to a spreadsheet and analyzed it to derive the following:

The average number of deaths per year for that 25-year period is 1540. The average per year for GW Bush is 1297. What's more the fraction of these deaths that are ACCIDENTAL averaged over 50%! (56% to be precise) The average total military over these years was around 2,000,000 with an average death rate of 0.079% (deaths/man).

Here're the yearly averages for the total deaths and each sub-category over each President's years covered in the table listed in order of decreasing total deaths (needs to be in a fixed spacing font to line up properly):

............total...acc...host....hom....ill....pend.....self.infl.....terrorist...undet.
Carter......2392...1556....174....419....231.......1.........11
Reagan......2150...1332.....64....249....327.....128.........58...........20
GHW Bush....1556....872.....88....175....268.....121.........33
GW Bush.....1297....527....276.....45....215......47........156...........26..........21
Clinton......938....494.....47....160....153......71.........12...........14
A couple of observations:

Ranking them by accidental deaths would give the same result. GW Bush's average death rate of 276 due to hostile action is the highest, followed by Carter at 174 (just for the one year covered). Death by homicide for GW Bush is BY FAR the lowest of all of them. But the self-inflicted rate is by far the highest for him. I would like to know more about both of these numbers.

It'd also be interesting to know the accidental and illness death rates for similar-age civilian folks.

Will we see you this week? Bmwcyle and I hope to be there, I'm negotiating now.

Not sure if you've been monitoring things, but the trooprally's will be out of town and Cindy (formerly Lurker Joan) who is also a local from Olney has been in Texas with her son. He was hit by a drunk driver and critically injured over Spring Break. The only one to be there for sure is Lurker Bill, so extra bodies are needed. A couple of weeks ago, some "teenagers" as Mr. T put it, showed up and said they would be back, but were a no-show last week. Hope to see you!
