Just Got Back From An Overpasses For Obama's Impeachment Rally-WHAT A BLAST!

Please pardon the vanity!

I just got home from an Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment rally in Latham, NY. This one was to support the truckers effort.

WHAT A BLAST! Thousands of cars passed us and the majority of them honked, gave 'thumbs up' and/or waved encouragingly. A few people hollered 'THANKS!"

We got a very few negative shouts and maybe 7 'thumbs down'.

There were 6 of us, and 2 more people parked their car and joined us. How cool is that???

I swear to you as well, a few black guys walked past us at different times and they all said they agreed with us and Barry sucks.

The coolest thing? 3 trucks blocked the lanes of 87 north underneath our overpass for several minutes while they approached, horns blaring.

I am very heartened, I am not alone, There are far more of 'us' out there than 'them'.

If you can, find or start a rally in your area. Make a few signs, bring a few flags. 3 or 4 hours. If only to encourage others where you live to start fighting, or to not give up.

Very cool. Sad but here in Ottawa County MI we do not have many overpasses at all. Very Very few of them and two I can think of are over waterways.....now how do you get a sailboat to honk?

Most boats have horns for safety purposes.

Yes Sir! or Ma’am. The new overpass over the Northway. If you went past I was the chick in the giant, green fleece. We’ll be at it again in a few weeks - wanna join us? I’ve never met a Freeper in real life!! :)

You don’t necessarily need an Overpass; a sidewalk or roadside with traffic going past will do! Most of our efforts were directed at the traffic in front of us, not under us.

Give it a thought - 1 person with a sign and a flag can make a HUGH difference! ;)

Fog horns if they are properly equipped and obeying the law.

Dainbramaged posted the link for the website.
They’re also on Facebook if you use it.
Just search for Overpasses and then find your state.

I am glad to help you if you want help in this.

Blessings!

I really felt like that today. But a nice, middle-aged, Italian Mother Warrior. :) I haven’t felt this positive in several years. I cannot recommend this particular activity highly enough. Somehow a bit better than even a Tea Party Rally, I guess because we were connecting with people who didn’t choose to be there, but we still got an incredibly affirmative response, ya know?

I understand, and you’re welcome.

But the greater good was done for me. Living in blue NY near Albany I always feel as if I am alone in my ideology but today proved me wrong. More of us are not standing for this BS anymore.

Wow! It sounds great!
I wanted to go to DC for the vet demonstration (am only 3 hrs away) but facing surgery this coming week so no go.
I’ve been on a few March For Life marches and waved for candidates on street corners but never felt that rush you seem to have gotten...
Glad it was such a positive experience for you!
Fight on!!!

I agree.

And I’m doing the required head-banging thing.

The dog thinks I’m an idiot.

That said, how’s this?
(David Gray and Annie Lennox)

All our lives we’ve dreamed about it

Just to find that it was never real

This sure ain’t no great Valhalla

Coming closer each turn of the wheel

Forlorn; adrift on seas of beige

In this our Golden Age

Even in our darkest hour

Never thought that it could get so bad

Bullied; suckered pimped and patronised

Every day your tawdry little lives

So lose your head

And step within

The silence deafening

Now you saw it coming And I saw it coming

We all saw it coming

But we still bought it

You saw it coming And I saw it coming but still

Running full steam ahead

In and out of consciousness
It breaks my heart to see you like this

Crying; wringing hands and cursing fate

Always so little far too late

It’s 3am I’m wide awake

There’s still one call to make, one call

Now you saw it coming And I saw it coming

We all saw it coming

But we still bought it

You saw it coming

And I saw it coming We all saw it coming

But we still bought it

Running full steam ahead Running full steam ahead

Running full steam

Gonna cover my eyes, gonna cover my eyes

Runnin’ full steam, yeah

Now you saw it coming And I saw it coming We all saw it coming

But we still bought it

You saw it coming And I saw it coming We all saw it coming But we still bought it

Thanks for that report. I saw a video of one of the overpass protests in California, and even there, there was lots of honking in support. We are definitely not alone.
