I just go home from the event...Several interesting tid bits to report. One organizer, with a hand counter/clicker thing, said he had counted 350 bikes leaving from Emeryville. Hard to say how many went directly to Berkeley or arrived on BART as I did.

An interesting event happened early on. I was talking with a guy running the sound system before the event. They were twirling dials, doing microphone checks and running wires from the back bed of a pick-up, parked just one spot up from the Marine station. Geek wires all over the place. Tie-downs and a soundboard, with a wireless system also. Flags and signs all over the truck. An event permit clearly on the front dashboard. A cop comes over and asks, “Is this your truck”? Oh-oh!

The truck owner gulps, says “yes” in a hesitant, quizzical tone to the officer. We both were wondering what this was all about???? GULP!!!!

The officer nicely asks if he had any tie-downs so he could attach some American flags to his bike! We both broke into large grins, and handed the office some tie-downs. LOL

Always plenty of pics of the code pinkos - when they have no where near the numbers - Gotta arrange for cameras ahead - have your own and call the TV stations and hint that you ‘heard’ the protesters were going to get violent. The media never wants to miss out on violence.

"Eagles Up paid for their permit.

They sure did. That just ticks me off royally! Berkeley is very one-sided in their free "Freedom of Speech" generosity.

People can help defray their expenses. They represent our collective voices "We Support Our Troops!" God Bless them all.

Berkeley residents probably saw an American flag riding into town and ran away.

Now if the Bikers could only treat the craven cowardly Berklyites to some tender Biker reeducation.

For a brief shining moment today, Berkeley became part of America. What an awesome sight to see all those patriots with their American flags. God Bless everyone who showed up and made a difference for our Marines and for our country.

“For a brief shining moment today, Berkeley became part of America.”

Correction: America was brought to Berkeley!
