    I see this as a measure of how far the right-wing propaganda engine has pushed people. These people have been getting viciously manipulated few years without any break. They're all about ready to pop. And the propagandists have shown no signs of slowing down before they get a lot of people hurt.
    They won't get arrested...their trucks won't get impounded...don't get carried away.

    Let's table that discussion until the truckers start throwing rocks, raping people and defecating on police cars.

    Also, since you brought up OWS, I can't pass up the chance to post this awesome OWS video:

    They really were batsh** crazy.

    Most truckers are unionized. Unions tend not to be replublicrats. This is much ado about absolutely nothing.

    It sounds like a nice plan at first until I have to get somewhere and I can't get through someone's protest. I support protesting. Just don't screw with my daily activities while you do it.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Actually you can congest the hell out of a roadway just going the speed limit especially if there are differential speed limits. I don't remember if Washington DC has differential speed limits or not. If not, it still can be done quite effectively as most motorists speed by about 10 mph or better. I wont get into the resulting physics but its actually real easy to accomplish.

    News to me on most truckers being unionized. I think your info is off. I run a logistics company, so I would know if most trucking companies are unionized let alone drivers. Most are independents or small fleets less then 10 trucks.

    If you want to block traffic for a good long time that will do nicely.

    Sorry you simply dont get to take over I-495, and decide "who gets in and who gets out" or "lock up the brakes and become a three lane road block" if your given a hard time. It endangers everybody else.

    pretty simple.
    I agree with you. They want to affect policy then get all the drivers together or a large majority of them and refuse to work for a few days. That will get EVERYONES attention. Otherwise its just pointless affectation.
