    You cheer for your team, I'll cheer for mine, and there's no hypocrisy in that.

    I anticipate that nothing will come of this, or a LOT of CDLs are going to get revoked.

    That depends on whether you have principles or not. If you do, then approaching governance like sports requires hypocrisy.

    They're threatening to park on the Beltway. If they park on the Beltway, I assure you that they'll get arrested and their trucks will be impounded. DC & Fairfax County cops won't try to sweet talk them into moving. They'll throw them in the pokey and call some tow trucks.

    You obviously don't understand the law, nor the logistics involved in arresting those drivers and impounding their trucks, not to mention the problems it would cause for the consumers who are expecting that freight to be delivered, on time and in one piece. OR, the liability the authorities would shoulder, by impounding all that freight.

    Here in America, one can't be arrested for illegal parking.

    Show me the law that would allow the government to revoke anyone's CDL over this.

    Fortunately, we don't forfeit our Constitutional rights, just because we do something that some folks don't like.

    DC's technically Southern. The Mason-Dixon line runs north of DC, above Maryland. That was a compromise to the Southern States, to locate the Capitol in the South. Maryland is often thought to be a Northern state because they fought with the Union in the civil war, but they were a Southern state who sided with the USA over the CSA, like West Virginia (which broke off from Virginia because that part of the state sided with the USA).

    It doesn't fit in the modern South culturally, but it's still in the South, as the South is generally defined (by the Mason-Dixon Line).

    Maryland was a neutral state. Her citizens served in the Federal and Confederate armies.

    There are truly crazy folks involved in this Truckers Rebellion thing

    Witness Earl Conlon, who is the primary organiser




    I wonder if the Secret Service has been by to speak with Mr Conlon

    Do you believe these truckers have a right to block others and arrest congressmen?
