    Sorry...but I have neither the time nor the inclination to wade back through this ridiculous thread. If you have an actual link to Park Service data concerning this matter please repost it. Otherwise stop wasting my time!

    Hmm great come back there I can see we have a winner here folks let me guess your one of those Mr. Obama RoseCoveredEye Glass's followers.

    So let me clue you in on how it works in this forum when we post something in the Breaking News Section the OP person is required to post a link to said topic so hmm lets see maybe instead of being a complete jerk on this subject you might want to take the time and go back to the first page and read it before making a dumbass comment.

    Never mind what, it's not like the NPS would lie about numbers they aren't a Political Arm of the Govn. they call it on how they see it. I guess you don't know how things work in DC.

    Re: Tens of thousands attend broad protest of government in nation's capital

    I attended the march and would say that the number easily surpassed a million. I judge this by the fact that I spend many fall weekends in a football stadium which holds 95K.As far as being an organized event,it was very poorly organized and for those of you around in the 60's I liken it to a "happening". The speaker system and porta potties were inadequate,the march had to start 2 hours ahead of time because the crowd,which was supposed to stage at freedom square and March at 11:30 was forced by police to march much earlier because the square was overwhelmed by people. You can't lump these people together and call them wingnuts or racists,any more than you can say that all democrats are gay. They were there for a variety of reasons,but in general feel threatened (probably economically) and let down by their gov't. in that respect they are a very determined group to be reckoned with. Many of the people around me were sleeping on the ground because they had driven all night to be there. The more interesting point was that almost all I spoke to said they knew many who wished to come but couldn't. this tells me if there is another event, the number will easily double.The question in my mind is who will manage to take control of this movement as it appears out of control and looking for leadership at present, a cause for concern. My favorite sign? "Make me Wine Czar"

    I didn't call them un-American or question their patriotism, only their numbers and tactics, and they most certainly weren't grassroots. Also, fighting for the constitution is on a higher plane in public discourse than fighting for gun control which directly violates the constitution, bingo for more government control, handouts, "reparations", etc. The closest to legit dissent out of all of the examples of left protest would be the actual grassroots portion of the anti-war left, certainly not Code Pink or the very well funded Cindy Sheehan.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I have a feeling this is just the start of something MUCH bigger.

    Protest, the true sign of Patriotism.
