Skip to comments."OccupiersDC" Occupy Olney For An Hour - Week 299, Oct. 15, 2011
Posted on 10/20/2011 4:05:07 PM PDT by trooprally
The old hippie lib Quackers did what was expected of them - They have been to another anarchist protest. They were pawns, sheeple, morons in a movement that they think they understand. The only way the real organizers behind the occupiers could get big enough crowds is to get every lib, leftists and anti-American group possible to show up.
BUT, there is hope for our future if we can hold the line.
This week our daughter and 3 of our grand kids were in Olney to help out. Our patriots extent across 7 decades - from our 9 year old granddaughter through Glenn, an Iwo Jima Vet. Also in Olney were Vets from some of the major conflicts in between. Halsey served in Korea and Lurker Jim (Army) served in Vietnam and [Mrs] T (Army) who served Stateside in the early 70s.
In the Walter Reed AARs and recently the Olney AARs, Lurker Jim (Army) has not been recognized as a Vietnam Vet - Thank you Jim for your service. Halsey, Legion Post 68 commander, has been actively trying to recruit Jim.
And our future has promise, our grand kids grade school (located in a more conservative part of Maryland) has a poll of politicians. Cain has 45 votes, The One has 3.
9 Patriots in Olney today were: Legionaries Glenn (USMC - WWII) and Halsey (USMC - Korea) along with Lurkers Bill and Jim, [Mrs] T and myself, along with our daughter and 3 grand kids.
BELOW LEFT: Youngest granddaughter. BELOW RIGHT: Next in line

DC Chapter Master Ping List
Join us this Saturday for our 300th Rally.
I’m part of #OccupyChair doing this Maryland PING thing!
Wish I could join you for the 300th!
The flag display on your side means so much more than their signs!
1) The pictures are blocked from this computer so I look forward to checking out the generations later.
2) “Some new money making SPEED CAMERAS have been installed on north bound Georgia Avenue right before you enter the main business district. Slow your speed after the light at King William Drive.” I can testify to that; I got caught at the last Olney FReep I attended. It’s a multi-lane road in both directions with only a single speed sign on the grass to the right showing the speed as 30 (35?). I had to search for that sign via Google earth, going up and down “street view” FIVE times before I spotted the sign. Only then did I pay the $40 ticket. The weekend and the troop-supporting company was worth it, though.
Yeah, they can only occupy DC if they do it the way Congress does — with lots and lots of recesses.
