Please post your updates from D.C. and from news reports here as well as your photos of the day.

Our Walter Reed salute to the troops last night was very well attended. Upwards of 800 people were there over the three-plus hours of the demonstration.

Photos and video taken by This Ain'tHell taken in daylight before the bulk of the crowd showed can be viewed here.

Three of the television sets were tuned into the local NBC news affiliate at Gold’s Gym this morning. They did a long interview with a man in a Stars & Stripes shirt and a cowboy hat. Volume was muted but was able to read signs over his shoulders about tort reform and other various slams on Obama’s health care plan.

There’s a report on their site with a place to leave comments here

Thank you! I couldn't figure out how to do that.

It looks like these revolutionaries are ready to storm the Bastille!

Thanks. That’s good - we’ll get good coverage plus he’ll be safe. Can’t imagine how overwhelmed he must feel. It will keep him encouraged in the midst of all the attacks and threats.

For those wanting to follow from home. Looks like the trolls(media matters) are at this site trying to downplay the crowds. It could use some ‘FReeping!

I remember when Santelli first made his Tea Party rant in February.

Neil Cavuto gave brief coverage and then remarked that it would be a day or two event and then would fizzle.

Well, Neil, fizzle seems to have turned into SIZZLE.

Bulls & Bears is ticking me off. This is not what I’m tuning into see. They should be giving full coverage to the events in D.C. FNC is clueless.

I agree. Also, the expense they are incurring - it should be a tax write off! They are doing what the elected officials refuse to do while getting paid to do it!

The MSNBC anchor babe is incredulous . . her voice was rising when she said: “There have to be 100,000 people there”.

Now they’re discussing whether these 100,000 people are “freaks and nutballs”.

I agree - the new ROE are a complete mistake and downright criminal! Thanks for spotlighting what should be plastered on every media outlet.

August was the deadliest month for our troops. So sad. Pray for our military.

Imagine how small the crowd would be if all the people who scrambled and sacrificed to be there found reasons they could not attend.

This crowd is already much larger than seen in Tehran during their protests yet the media managed to overcome the Mullahs oppression to free speech and cover it. Now, not so much. Telling.

One of my favorite signs so far says, “You Can’t Strengthen the Weak by Weakening the Strong” or words to that effect.

Anyone know why the US flag in the pic at post 259 appears to be at half mast?

Is it because our Resident-In-Chief is Half Ast?

Crowd now in view at 3rd and Constitution. 14th and E st. crowd still the same size! March moving at a quick clip. I would guess that indicates a large mass of bodies moving down that avenue!

The day of the Jackson Michigan Tea Party I had $11 in my pocket. 10 of that went in my gas tank to go to the rally and the other dollar went into the kitty for the Tea Party express.

The rudeness of it took me aback also, DJ MacWoW. I am only working part-time and having to live with my daughter who’s in the Navy. Totally uncalled for post by NautiNurse on such a great day for all conservatives, IMO.
