    If you had an actual number from the NPS you'd post the link. Nice try, chump!

    Some right-wing blogs are trying to inflate the numbers to avoid the embarassing turn-out.

    60k is still a significant number. But obviously not what the promoters had hoped for.
    The official estimate from which source??

    Now, I also don't think that it was in the 2 million people either... but looking at the rooftop video there's not a chance that it was less then 150-200 thousand people.. what I saw was the full street of people from edge to edge that went on for about 6-7 blocks. Maybe an upper-area of 500-600 thousand... but no way less then that.

    Who took it away?? Elite bankers, along with various cartels (oil, drugs, microsoft, etc)
    Where did they take it?? To the cleaners, they've taken everything that wasn't bolted down and if they haven't already gone for the exits they are on their way.

    BTW this is my country also and I did not know that it was missing!!
    It's missing that fiery american spirit once called 'freedom' now called 'terrorist'... it's everything productive from the country being sold off to the highest bidder with the lowest standards. It's about having the best technology for health care on the planet and being given an aspirin for a heart attack. It's about paying more for getting less... it's not much different then a robbery.

    It's about the coming 'new world order'

    I just heard Glenn Beck say that the University of Indiana (I believe) did a crowd estimate based on the video and aerial pictures, and determined the crowd to be 1.7 million.

    But who knows... either way, the liberal media will never try and figure it out, because it isn't in their interest to even talk about it.

    You should do your homework. The only references to the guy supposedly making the comment from NPS is on blogs and message boards. While it does not mean that there is not an NPS estimate, it does raise real questions.

    The DC police did release one very significant figure though...

    For an "angry mob" of that size, they were happy to report that there were a grand total of "0" arrests. That's right, not one arrest took place at this event, which is a testament to the class of people that attended this protest, versus the class of people who have attended protests there in the past.
