Tell us about the march on 9/12!

I watched a couple of hours of Glenn covering it. And I so wanted to be there.

Tell us what it was like!

We got a flat tire and turned around!

No kidding - we got a flat in Lorton and figured it was a sign, so we limped
back home on a donut.

It was bumper-to-bumper up there...on a Saturday. Unheard of!

We tried to make it, but common sense prevailed in this case we decided
we did the right thing.

We wound up watching it on Fox News like everybody else.

Sorry if we let anybody down.

Heh... you didn't let anybody down. According to the UK news outlets there were up to 1.8 million people there (funny that the New York TImes isn't reporting that). Absolutely amazing.

So, what did you think of Glenn's 56 re-founders idea?

I'll put it to ya this way:

I supported the MCM for years, with average crowds of 30,000+ at the
start/finish area alone....

This was TEN TIMES that large. There were crowds before you even
GOT to DC!

I think the UK reports are a little over the top at the most, but pretty
accurate at minimum. They (UK Press) have nothing to lose, so my hat's
off to them for calling it like they see it.

As far as Beck and the 56 Re-Founders... I think it's GENIUS.

Beck's spot on.

I just finished "Common Sense" and liked that, too.

It's going to be very interesting to see who steps up to the machine, and I
support them every step of the way.

People have to understand that this isn't a elephant or donkey issue...

It's EVERY AMERICAN'S ISSUE.

The corruption is the REAL evil, and all that goes with it, and it goes back
waaaaaaay before the Obamas and the Bushes and the Clintons.
Don't start none...won't be none.
