People followed the instructions to bring no political signs. "These are just totally normal, go-to-work, Honey-can-I-do-the-dishes people -- who are fed up," said David McGregor, a real-estate developer who had flown to Washington from Orlando, Fla.

    After the rally, a number of people said they took as the main message of the gathering that they had to get their own houses in order. "This is about each of us individually," said John Houck, a Vietnam War veteran who had come from Raleigh, N.C. The gathering was also his first-ever political event. "We are not rally people," he said, standing beside his wife, Louise.


    No fighting, no guns, no riots. Just well behaved ordinary people who believe this country has taken a wrong turn.

    Fantastic

    Well I'd imagine Gay people are in general much happier than the people that attended this rally which maybe makes it a feat that it was peaceful.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I want to put this out there - most gatherings of people aren't as violent as originally thought. Unless it's a VERY controversial group (i.e. the KKK marching through Schaumberg), then there is likely to be less than violent response.

    Nevertheless, you can't deny that Glenn Beck isn't wearing a bullet proof vest or that those aren't tea partiers in the videos and that is the issue, not the site.

    when the msm's pick up on the vest, you'll have something

    until then, you're the equivalent of a birther

    actually, after pew and time last week, the birthers are starting to break thru

    worry

    did you see o's interview with brian williams yesterday afternoon

    the guy just can't help himself

There was a lot of talk about getting the government out of people's lives, and I liked that to quite an extent. However, this is where the irony kicks in. I remember Selma Alabama and Jackson Mississippi in the 1960's, when blacks were murdered and churches blown up because people wanted to exercise their constitutional right to vote, to get served at lunch counters, and to ride in the front of the bus. It was in that context that Martin Luther King made that famous speech, and in that speech, he was not advocating for less government, but for more government, in order to protect the rights of those who were being murdered and their churches blown up.

    On this day in history, I very much respect the fact that Beck and Palin ran a good and peaceful show, and put out a great message of Americans coming together. I think Dr. King would have liked that. But let us also remember that, no matter how much we are against the government controlling our lives, there are pivotal times in history when government intervention is absolutely vital, in order to protect the rights of ALL Americans. Let us never forget what the civil rights struggle was really all about.

    Um.. What? (See bolded part)
