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.

Where would they stand if they did show up (besides inside the White House grounds)?

I see it this way. Those in DC are “players”. We are their “cheering section”. If no one was watching and cheering, there’d be no reason to play/march. They represent us and cheer for them.

Traffic cam at 14th and E Streets has shown solid crowd marching down PA Ave. for at least a half hour. Still two hours before the rally even starts.

Hildy, I hereby grant you permission to represent Me, my wife, my five children, and my two grandchildren at this rally.

Go patriots! Lovers of life, liberty, and all that is good about this country!

I gave up many shows. I no longer watch the alphabet networks. I even gave up some shows on Fox - House and Bones - because they were going too ‘gay’. Now I basically just watch FNC - and not much on it. I get a lot more reading done.

Do you remember the tons of trash left on the Mall after O’s inauguration? Don’t think the Americans in DC today will leave such a sight.

Earlier in the thread it was stated that no porta potties are in place. That is a problem. Hope some porta-john company learns of this and gets some units to DC...pronto!

I’m in the same boat - nearly in tears because my wife and I just can’t make it. Couldn’t afford the $90 bus fare from Pittsburgh.

Yet Obama took $1,200 from us in our taxes last April because we had to withdraw funds prematurely from our IRA. And he gave $11 MILLION to Microsoft so they could build a bridge over their highway.

I’m watching the live feed from the CNN camera. Apparently, it isn’t marked as “CNN”, so people are asking, “Where are you from?” When they hear it’s CNN, some are saying, “Thank you for covering this.” I think that’s great — that our guys are being polite and appreciative.

We have to make a concerted effort not to watch any programs on NBC/CBS/ABC regardless of how good the shows are.

The problem with that is that they own many of the other cable channels and televison production studios.

For example, NBC Universal owns:

I’m in Missouri, no money until October 15th, in my third trimester with my fifth child. I REALLY wish I could have been there today but there was no way it was going to happen. Can’t afford gas, hotel and food for that many people, nor could I have made that long of a trip in my condition. Please know that there are tons of us that want to be there but just can’t.

I am LOVING watching the webcams though cause you know if any of the msm shows it, they will show about 100 people at the end (and photos of the national mall after the Obama inauguration, claiming our protestors trashed the mall)
