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.

Don't forget that Glenn Beck will be covering it on Fox.

I was thrilled to hear the Whistle Stop on I-30 mentioned on Fox last night, and how many were in attendance.

For those not going to D.C. here’s information about what you can do today.

From my Tea Party Organizer.

Have you made the decision to sign wave & march on 9/12 one of the Tea Party Events on Saturday?

Instead, are you thinking about mowing your lawn, cleaning your windows, painting your house or weeding your garden?

Some questions to ask your self as you are making the decision which to do.

Who is going to stop the government by the government, of the government, for the government? You or somebody else?

Who is going to put an end to those elected officials residing in their Comfort Zone of Corruption, protecting themselves while robbing you blind, then lying to you at every turn? You? Or your neighbor?

Our great country is about to be stolen, right out from underneath us. Who is going to keep this from happening? You? Or your Mother & Father?

Your taxes go up, while they lie to you and tell you they are making your taxes go down. Who is going to hold them accountable? You. Or some guy at work?

Who is going to stop these elected officials if you do not?

Many people have to work today, some are still going to try to attend some way, some how. Many more have Saturday off from work.

What are your plans for 9/12, 2009—are you going to honor those lost in 9/11, with action or inaction?

Are you going show respect for the many who sacrificed

to be able to stand in harms way? The duty which they perform,

makes the simple act of driving to a Vermont Tea Party event, grabbing a sign and marching on a sidewalk in solidarity with others, look like an ice cream social.

Our Men and women abroad have the tough job of fighting for our country so we can sleep safely at night.

Our responsibility is to fight politically, to give them a country worth fighting for. Our job, our responsibility is an easy one by comparison; but unfortunately the excuses override the responsibility—inaction at the expense of Liberty & Freedom.

You must ask yourself, “what have I done today to contribute to this most important of political Causes. Am I making an excuse to do nothing, instead of fighting traitors to our Republic?”

If you do will eventually have nothing...

it will belong to the State, and you will too.

My wife and I drove up to northern Virginia and will be leaving in a few minutes to take the metro into DC. Just checked the metro web page and they're showing delays on all lines due to maintenance work. Just a coincidence that they'd do that work on a weekend when they knew we'd be invading their city?

Obama lied and the economy died!

“Just read that Barry will be in Minnesota today pushing Deathcare...”

What time? Would he EVEN attempt to preempt Glenn Beck’s 9/12 show this afternoon?
Hanging in there with all you guys in DC. Give’em hell.

you say “Impeach Obama - yes we can!!!”

this past week:
“’We're pinned down:’ 4 U.S. Marines die in Afghan ambush..”

They called for air cover; The answer, according to obama’s new ROE? tough - don't want to kill the tallies.

For the CIC to aid and abet the enemy, directly causing and allowing the death of our troops = who now are not allowed air cover - even when ambushed and pinned down, receiving fire and asking for help - are DINIED help - and get killed - in this case - the most marines killed in one battle since the beginning of the war - Is this not treason.

our traitor in chief is aiding and abetting our enemy in killing our troops = ducks in a shooting gallery and not allowed to defend themselves - no cover.

August was the deadliest month of the whole war for our troops = Sept is setting up to be even worse...because of the new ROE - Rules of Engagement...
which are NOT to provide air cover for our troops, even when ambushed, pinned down and being killed. (the rationale for these new ROE’s admits that it will cause more deaths for our troops now but that it will be worth it in the long run. Worth it for WHO? How “”LONG” is that run?)

That is treason. Pure and simple. That is aiding and abetting the enemy, who now knows THEY have the cover, not our troops - and they are ramping it up.

We need to slam Rush, Beck and all with emails demanding that our traitor in chief DEFEND OUR TROOPS,NOT THE TALIBAN.

send them the above link about the battle - the same battles our troops are now subjected to daily.

I am sick - frightened and sick...and our troops feel they are being sent to be fodder for the enemy - who are the real friends of our CIC?

We need to get the Tea Party folk to make signs saying: DEFEND OUR TROOPS,NOT THE TALIBAN...
and make our own signs and stand on the main intersections every day - at least weekends...get folks together - go to your local VFW and such halls and recruit -

Do this in your towns NOW - google for your local Tea Parties in your state...

MAKE YOUR SIGNS and gather friends and get downtown - have flags and music - Greenwoods “Glad to Be an American” is a good one. Alert your local newspapers and let them know you expect coverage. Hand out print outs of this battle, include the URL.

Write letters to the editor and just put the headline:

“’We're pinned down:’ 4 U.S. Marines die in Afghan ambush..”

Make those signs: DENIED AIR COVER as they were being killed...under the “DEFEND OUR TROOPS, NOT THE TALIBAN” - “Honk for our TRoops”

and include the web link -

and the facts about the new ROE and how deadly it has already been -

(Where's the presses outrage now?)

Let's Roll -
