Free Republic Convention & 9/12 TEA Party Picture Thread
Self | 090909 | GRRRRR

Posted on 09/09/2009 3:04:18 PM PDT by GRRRRR

Arrived in DC this afternoon safe and sound. I will be posting pics at link over the next few days. If technically able, also links to YouTube vids of the Tea Party March itself.

Staying at the FR Hotel, but I haven't met up with any FReepers yet.

From my hotel window, I have a view of the Washington Monument and this other monument that I don't recall...

I also saw Marine 1 flying in this afternoon as Obozo returned from some sort of memorial for Walter Crankheit...

More pics to come.

What the hell is that spikey thing?

I never saw that before. I spent a week there about 30 years ago.

Yep. That’s the Air Force memorial. I can see that, the Washington Memorial and Jefferson Memorial from my window too.

The United States Air Force Memorial honors the service and sacrifices of the men and women of the United States Air Force and its predecessor organizations, including the Aeronautical Division, U.S. Signal Corps; the Aviation Section, U.S. Signal Corps; the Division of Military Aeronautics, Secretary of War; the Army Air Service; the U.S. Army Air Corps; and the U.S. Army Air Forces. More than 54,000 airmen have died in combat while serving in the Air Force and these historical service arms of the military, the second highest of any of America’s four armed services.

Located on a promontory in Arlington, Virginia, overlooking the Pentagon and adjacent to Arlington Cemetery, the Air Force Memorial is easily seen on the skyline of Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia in Arlington county.

It’s also just about the only monument in DC that you can’t walk to without risking your life as it’s between the Jeff Davis Highway and the Potomac. You need to have a car or take a taxi.

Thursday...feels a bit like the calm before the storm.

Met up with some FREEPERS this morning and took a little walk down the hill. Did find the USAF Memorial and wandered around that site. Very simple and dignified. Up close, the Missing Man spires are very impressive.

There was a small memorial going on for the "Carpetbaggers" See Link Here a special operations USAF group in WWII.

Off to the north of the USAF Memorial, I could see just a small hill of Arlington National Cemetery...off in the distance to the east, I could see row after row of markers.

No it is not the Pentagon in the foreground. It is some sort of Dept of Defense building, Medical perhaps as there was a sign on an entry driveway for “Dental Area”...I wonder if it is a support building for burial preparation for Arlington?

The Pentagon is straight down the street from the hotel though.

WCG...there was not a SINGLE enemy sited...not ONE. No SEIU etc. The cops were just fine too. I have never seen so many people so well behaved. A lady dropper her pocketbook and people stopped to help her pick up her stuff and made sure she didn’t get trampled on.

At the Botanical Garden rest rooms, people lined up for wee wee and it was still a hoot, all talking to each other and having a good time. The ladies line was so slow, so the women started using the mens room as well, nobody had a problem with it!!

Thanks for the flix, GRRRRR... Didn’t even have to look at your page to recognize the Chicago in your accent (my hometown)... Especially enjoyed your exiting off the subway... Your narrative showed how positively stunned you were at that point at the proportions of the gathering. Absolutely excellent! much better than the pics for getting a feel for it all.

Good deal, I guess they decided to stay under their rocks - the tide is turning in out direction {I hope}

God bless ALL who went out yesterday and made it known to the big 0 that we will not put up with his cr@p. We’re not being led down the road to socialism and worse willingly!!

Now, it’s time to elect the right people in 2010 and throw the bums outta Congress that are living in the land of bozo.

Federal Office Building #2 sits on land leased from Arlington Cemetary, on a hill overlooking the Pentagon. It is USMC HQ. Wing 8 of FOB2 was removed, to make room for the AF memorial, aka the spikes in your pics. The AF memorial extends into the flight path of the aircraft used to attach the pentagon on 9-11.
