    Tea Party is a rising tide of political amateurs, just like the minute man volunteer army. Once the pot is stirred, you can’t pretend the pot is not boiling! These actions are the end of political hacks pretending to work by talking. We want work by working! They managed to lose 40 years of social security deposits that were replaced by senate IOU cards, and now it’s our problem they spent 40 years of savings to fund pet projects and pork barrel nonsense.

    You’re absolutely right. This is big, and it’s only getting bigger.

    There was a quote this morning in the news, a reporter asked the whitehouse spokesman what the President thought about the 9/12 march and he totally feigned not to know that it was even going on.

    They’ve ignored, feigned ignorance and been ignorant, but let me tell you, if 2 million people showed up on my doorstep, you can be sure I’d make sure I knew who they were and what they wanted. A president’s job is to be a man of the people, to represent Us. The People. How can he do his job with his fingers in his ears and his eyes squeezed shut? Sooner or later you have to face the music.

    Can you hear me now Mr. President?

    That 2M number was completely debunked. At the most, 70K marched on washington. At most.

    New math, my dear. And here’s your linky.

    You can keep your “new math” link….pictures don’t lie. Have you seen the live video of the crowds from the webcams and the pictures of the event itself? Incredible. It’s laughable that you can watch this and believe the “tens of thousands” line. I have no problem at all with the number estimated to be there, and that doesn’t even take into account the millions who attended simultaneous rallies across the nation.

    Media Matters did have one interesting point, why is it that ABC CBS CNN etc didn’t cover the rally in DC or the others across the nation? hmmmmm. (Your second link is just racist and filthy btw. You really read that stuff?) http://michellemalkin.com/2009/09/12/yes-the-picture-is-real-nutroots/

    “The size of the crowd – by far the biggest protest since the president took office in January – shocked the White House.”

    It’s about time America woke up to defend her freedoms. Obama and the rest of his cronies….and those are on BOTH sides of the isle btw, they’re working overtime to push these giant bills through congress that have nothing to do with freedom and liberty, but everything to do with socialism and control. It doesn’t sit right with me and I’m glad to see others standing up as well. This movement is growing. Keep your eyes shut at your own peril Washington.

    Possible explanation on that CNN, ABC, CBS discrepancy? From Pew Research:

    “The public’s assessment of the accuracy of news stories is now at its lowest level in more than two decades of Pew Research surveys, and Americans’ views of media bias and independence now match previous lows.

    Just 29% of Americans say that news organizations generally get the facts straight, while 63% say that news stories are often inaccurate. In the initial survey in this series about the news media’s performance in 1985, 55% said news stories were accurate while 34% said they were inaccurate. That percentage had fallen sharply by the late 1990s and has remained low over the last decade.

    Similarly, only about a quarter (26%) now say that news organizations are careful that their reporting is not politically biased, compared with 60% who say news organizations are politically biased. And the percentages saying that news organizations are independent of powerful people and organizations (20%) or are willing to admit their mistakes (21%) now also match all-time lows. ”

    Ha. That’s perfect! I hadn’t seen the pew info. People are no fools, at least not for long. They’re waking up aren’t they? What do you think will happen to the traditional news outlets with their credibility so low? They’ve got to either turn it around or drop off the face of relevancy.

    It was very inspiring. I was there. Lots of families, kids, etc, lots of humor (not mean-spiritedness as MSM tries to portray). Best poster I saw was this one.

    “Do I look like an ATM?” Photo of it here.

    Made me laugh.

    That is so awesome! I heard there were reps from every state in the Union who made the trip. The west coast rally here in L.A. was much the same. Kids, signs, flags everywhere. People were adamant, but good natured. I think it’s a good sign. I’ve been to several in this area, but this was the biggest by far. I wish I could have gone to D.C, that would have been so awesome. I have to admit, I’m a little jealous!

    ha! I love the pictures! and this from the comments: “If you want to see mean spirited extremism go to a liberal rally, or just watch David Letterman. On second thought, don’t watch him. He’s not funny any more.” —CED

    That’s TRUE! We actually had several people rev their engines and try to knock kids off the curb who were waving signs at the rally! Talk about bad temper, at least no one lost a finger lol.

    From Boston.com, this is the Boston Globe January 22nd. “The National Park Service says it will rely on a media report that says 1.8 million people attended President Obama’s inauguration. David Barna, a Park Service spokesman, said … ‘It is a record. … We believe it is the largest event held in Washington, D.C., ever.'” Again January 22, Boston Globe. Yesterday, September 13th, the UK Daily Mail wrote: “Up to two million people marched to the US capital today, carrying signs with slogans such as ‘Obamacare makes me sick.’ As they protested the health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.”

    Leave it to PF to believe the mainstream media and its ignorance of the right wing. An observer in DC wrote of his numbers: http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/cburgard/2009/09/14/912-the-revolution-has-begun/#more-224762

    The UK Daily Mail also puts the number above a million: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1213056/Up-million-march-US-Capitol-protest-Obamas-spending-tea-party-demonstration.html

    Why is the mainstream media and others so intent on downplaying the backlash to government spending and healthcare? Why protect the guilty parties in government? Do we really trust our government that much?
