Skip to comments.March to (DC) Madness (Progressives Plan to Shut Down Highway System)
Posted on 11/20/2011 12:34:24 PM PST by STD
Dear MoveOn member,
Last week, a courageous group left the Occupy Wall Street camp in New York City and started marching to Washington, DC. Their goal was to bring the outrage and energy of the 99% directly to Capitol Hill. They're marching to call out the congressional Super Committee, which could cut a deal before Wednesday slashing Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to protect tax breaks for the 1%.
(Excerpt) Read more at freerepublic.com ...
So we met up with the marchers yesterday and filmed a short video to help spread their story. It's critical that as many people as possible see this, as the Super Committee nears its critical deadline. Can you share it right now with your friends and family?
Watch the video
If enough of us share this video we can help the march get more attention, get more coverage in the media, and ultimately, put more pressure on Congress and the Super Committee.
After marching nearly 200 miles through the winter cold, they'll cross through Baltimore and prepare for their final push into Washington on Tuesday, just before the Super Comittee's deadline. Dozens of supporters have joined the march along the way. But it's up to all the rest of us to help share their story and make sure that by the time they get to Washington, Congressand the rest of the countryis expecting them.
uh, what the heck?
LOL! I was thinking the same thing. Can you say “road rage”? Hehe! May I suggest travelers in the DC Metro area stock up on a few dozen eggs? ;-)
Commuter carpool response:
I call BS on the entire thing.
On what roads will they travel? Nobody anywhere is allowed to walk on the Interstate system so marching down I95 is certainly out.
Nobody that I am aware of has actually seen any of this riffraff marching antwhere
These OWS punks “Want everything given to them for free.” Those GI’s who crossed the English Channel in 1944 were “Willing to die for freedom and to free others from tyrants.”
Throw the fairies in the army and send them to afganistan that will give them something to cry about
No problems. Any blood and bodily fluids will buff right out I use Meguair’s ;)
Should you be putting this message up on DU?
Why would any Freeper support the communist re-distribution of wealth?
I don’t think STD supports these folks. He’s merely informing us.
How does one march from NYC to DC?
Take the Appellation trail?
Given the traffic gridlock on the beltway much of the time, they will be walking faster than those of us in automobiles.
Their big target is to Occupy Congress soon. Shut it down, lay siege to it. (burn it down?) Their demand is for the GOP to bow down and pass Obama’s “jobs bill”.
OWS is nothing but Obama2012’s brownshirts
lol... marching... Soros and the AFL-CIO is paying big bucks to bus those activists to DC
Nobody is allowed to camp in parks for months without permits either.
This is all part of the Obama2012 campaign...
I almost wish those fools would shut down the highway systems, three days of no trucks and the cities would start going hungry, then we’d see how popular the OWSers were with the general public! And the preppers would have the last laugh.

There are several FReepers who receive emails from the commies including myself in order to keep an eye out and inform everyone here. STD is just doing the same. I do it for one specific thread which I won't mention because I don't want to out myself as an informant :)
Just as there are sleeper FReepers who pretend to support FR but go to gutter sites and attack FReepers by name using our posts. The internet is ugly.
As Don Corleone said, keep your freinds close and your enemies closer.
You want to shoot people for taking a stand against a government that’s ready to rip away what little they or their loved ones might have? Newsflash, some people don’t make enough to aquire a nice little “nest egg” and they live on peanuts once they have to retire. These are folks who for the most part have worked their entire lives and never took welfare. I applaud people who rise up and make their voices heard when they believe in something believe there is an injustice. Whether I agree with them or not.
The Man been keepin’ you down, Sister?
If they are able to get out and march like that in rather harsh conditions, they could get off their butts and get a job!
I wonder how many of those marchers are on SSI for “bad backs”.
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
Don't need no weatherman to see which way the Occupied wind blows.
Is this from the Onion, or what?
Fleabaggers marching fro YC to DC? If they make 10 miles before succombing to Latte deficiency syndrome, I’ll be flabberghasted.
How do you spell “Road Kill”?
Real bad move. DC commuters are the most pissy in all the world.
You ever driven in Seattle on a work day? Pissy is lite!
>> You want to shoot people for taking a stand against a government thats ready to rip away what little they or their loved ones might have?
Nah, I’d prefer they use napalm on ‘em. And let me tell you who’s ripping who. These pukes want the government to rip away the earnings of hardworking people to hand it over to the lazy. Excuse me but I’m not in favor of that.
>> Newsflash, some people dont make enough to aquire a nice little nest egg and they live on peanuts once they have to retire.
Newsflash, these aren’t retirees — they’re union pukes and college age punks stirred up by professional communist activists.
>> These are folks who for the most part have worked their entire lives and never took welfare.
That’s pretty funny! Who writes your jokes?
A few years back a guy decided to stand on the Wilson bridge(the DC beltway, the bridge that seperates Maryland and Virginia) and threated to jump. The cops stopped traffic on the beltway. A local radio station sent a reporter out to talk to people in their cars.
Little old ladies were cursing blue streaks, mild manner accountants were begging the cops to shoot the ba$%^%$, soccer moms in vans were offering tire irons to any pedestrian who would knock the f&*^&%$ off the G D bridge.
This is a tough crowd pard, any given day at best it’s a stressful commute. The least little thing will send people into a rage that scares even the cops. I would not want to be part of anything that dispupts traffic in DC during rush hour.
I don't think anyone will notice.
Did anyone inform the 80 MPH commuters?

On one of his ‘anniversaries’, his shrink thought it would be a good idea if he relived the moment to help him get over it.
Thankfully, some official with some gonads told them both they were crazy but think they ‘compromised’ and let them gather in the park UNDER the bridge.
As to the pin heads that trudged to Washington from NY (the writer comes close enough to comparing them to GW and Valley Forge - well he would have it he had any knowledge of history) if ‘we’ tell them there are no more than 3 or 4 people per car on highway, they could do some real ‘harm’ by standing on the railroad tracks....
