Traffic Shutdown? Truck drivers plan 3-day protest on Capital Beltway - October 8, 2013, 11:54 AM

Not only is the government (partially) shut down, but now a caravan of truck drivers is looking to shut down traffic around Washington -- as part of a bizarre protest against things that are "destroying America."*

They're going to find out just what kind of damage a Molotov Cocktail can do to a truck.

Yeah I heard about, from all things an "A-bodies" (old-school Dodge Dart and Plymouth Valiant platform) web site. Their "politics" section seems to skew ultra-conservative. They mention infowars.com and ridefortheconstitution.org as sources. These days any one of myriad firebrands out there can come up with this stuff and word spreads quickly.

I seriously hope this does not happen. Plain stupid IMO. Otherwise, I am taking day off from work. No way in hell I am going to be blocked from going home.

"This is the legend of Rubber Duck"

I guess he found the German-dubbed version.


"They who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- B. Franklin

Every politician should serve two terms... one in office followed immediately by an equal or longer-length one in jail... except in New Jersey where jail time is a pre-requisite to holding office.

Donkeys and Elephants belong in a zoo, not Congress.

I thought that was a teenaged boy hugging him until I zoomed in......which now begs the question "If I thought it was two shirtless dudes hugging, why did I zoom in?"
