Some Times the Small Things, Mean A Lot.. DC 912

Posted by courage On October - 28 - 2009

With all the news seeping from the Washington sewers;  the health care bill,  the Poser-in-Chief signing the Hate Crimes bill  and the House Judiciary Committee holding hearing on multi-million dollar professional football players and their higher than average likelihood to suffer from dementia. Where is the concern over our soldiers being killed and the lack of any action to support the ground troops.. am I the only American who feels like beating her head against my desktop?

For one brief moment I was satisfied that we were a part of this history making event….

912 DC Rally Attendance … UPDATED @ END… WOW !

Posted by courage On September - 16 - 2009

There is dispute as to how many Patriots attended the March on Washington, 9-12-09.  Ranges can be found on the net from 60,000 to over a million.

In 1995, the National Park Service quit estimating crowds for events.  I guess Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam had some disagreements when the Park Service estimated only 400,000 in attendance for the Million Man March.

So here we are today, with the mainstream media purposefully underestimating and minimizing the event.  Plus we have Senior Adviser axelbutt Axelrod stating on Sunday:

“I don’t think it’s indicative of the nation’s mood,” Axelrod said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “You know, I don’t think we ought to be distracted by that. My message to them is, they’re wrong.”

Latest Rasmussen Poll on Health Care

Obama had a short-term positive bump in polling numbers following his “you lie” speech last week.  Today polls have fallen back to pre-lie speech levels, with 52% of all voters nationwide opposing the plan.

Can I now say… YOU BOTH LIE !

Ahh, it’s one of those “inconvenient truth” moments, because I have read the entire bill.  This would probably shock my unRepresentative Visclosky, since he has publicly stated he only reads the “pertinent parts.”  How he knows which sections to read is beyond me, I’m thinking he takes he cues from moveon thugs and seiu goons, which he seems awful cozy with.

So  an official number by the National Park Service seems out of the question.  Scouring the net for clues to attendance numbers, I found something I found interesting:

White House: “Unaware of Rally” 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 15 - 2009

After resizing some of the many pictures that were taken at the Tax Payers March on Washington, I thought you might enjoy getting a feel for the day.

Take a moment and read the signs, notice the common theme.  This protest was about how government is expanding at an alarming rate, how the deficit is ballooning out of sight and how average citizens  feel  their voices are not being heard by elected officials.

All contrary to what Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the squatters in Washington have been stating throughout the summer, with their rhetoric of imagined racism, delusional claims of protesters being unAmerican and continued insults to the American patriots psyche.  Time for them to wake-up…

These are the faces of AMERICANS !

WOW… just WOW… 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 12 - 2009

Amazing ! What you ask?  The entire day.  Here are just a couple of observations, heck I need to process the entire day before I start to write about it, I’m sure you understand.

The day started out early, organizers pushed back the start time from 10:00am to 11:00.  Participants were to march to the Capital according to their state residency. We headed out the door, taking the Hotel shuttle to the Metro; the District of Columbia’s light rail line.  Our Metro station, Van Dorn, is second from the end of the line, the platform was filled with Patriots headed to the rally.  Patiently we waited…  our surprise was when the next train pulled in to the station, it was already filled to capacity.  The station platform broke in to a spontaneous applaud, resigning ourselves to wait for the next train and elated with joy with what we hoped would be a large number day.

We The People Are Here ! 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 12 - 2009

Chater bus Official reports have stated that 450 charter buses have filed for permission to entire the Capital area for the 9-12 project.  That’s a lot of buses and a whole lot more people.

Yesterday we wandered around the District of Columbia and everywhere we went were signs of Patriots.  On the Metro traveling in to D.C. we met Patriots from  across this great country who have descended upon D.C., on each path,  at each street corner you either saw visible signs of Patriots or overheard conversations about today’s march and excitement to be part of this historic event.  We have been told that every charter bus in the state of Ohio has been booked and is here.  Can you imagine the  sacrifice, passion and love of country each individual who will be present today has made to be  here?

There is excitement in the air, anticipation of something bigger than each of us alone, coming together with common purpose.  Yesterday I can not count the number of times I heard some variation of “I have never done anything like this in my entire life.”  YES, the sleeping giant has been awakened.

We The People Are Here !

Embracing the American Voice 912 DC

Posted by courage On September - 11 - 2009

912 ProjectThere are moments in life when circumstances dictate action.  We each determine when the underlying catalysis of a situation compels us toward movement.

For us this trip, participating in the 9-12 project is one such moment.  Our deep-seated concern, centers on a gut level feeling that the Republic is being swiftly and purposefully moved toward a socialist/ fascist model. An unsettled sense of freedom being threatened propelled us from being average, perhaps complacent, citizens to finding a voice determined to be heard.

Congress is Back in Session…

Posted by courage On September - 9 - 2009

and they are glad!  They learned summer recess is not always fun and games; every once in awhile their constituents have something to say.

These are true patriots!  They have taken time away from family, friends and life to question their paid servants (aka Senators and Congresspersons), to voice legitimate concerns regarding health care “reform” which threatens to fundamentally redefine health care in the United States.

Instead of listening with keen ears to these concerns, the political elite dismiss, insult and attempt to bully this grassroots effort.

Sure like anyone with one kernel of sense believes anything Nancy has to say.  As with many of the town hall meeting throughout the summer, our arrogant elected officials have no patience in hearing the voice of the poeple they are elected to represent.

The recess may be over and Congressional Reps may be feeling snug back in their contained bubble of Washington, where they feel supreme in their position.

But a tide is rolling in to the capital.. a wave of patriots will soon fill the streets and once more make their presence known.  We The People are Coming…

YouTube Preview Image

We will be joining these concerned citizens.. if you cannot attend, I urge you to write, call, fax or email you Reps sometime this week.  Let these arrogant servants of the people know that while you may not be in Washington physically, your heart and spirit rests with those marching on Saturday.

Starting on Thursday night, we will be updating with thoughts and pictures from our journey to Washington.
