What a bunch of idiots.

Nice work with the captions. It really is amazing that these people confront the poor peace officers trying to do their job and get everyone to simply act like adults.
Do you are anyone else know if there were active duty military who spoke and where in uniform?

Thanks for the great post, C Girl.
Thanks also to the DC FReepers!
Loved the commentary. ROFL! That's Entertainment....
I pray to God America survives degenerates like these. I loathe them all. God forgive me.
The picture captions are hilarious!
What a bunch of idiots.
__________________________No, no, no - you just don't understand! Every one of them is a class act. LOW class, to be sure, but class acts, nonetheless. Their collective IQ would have to register at least in the low 70s, wouldn't you guess?
I still think that Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs should sue Jackson Brown for recording "Stay". A separate suit should nail Jackson for impersonating a singer.

You are not alone!
Why do they look like Arabs?
It starts with a drum circle, the next thing you know, there's a college.
Outstanding captions--especially the ships and the clerical error. LOL! Thanks, for standing in the gap, DC Chapter.
