Wow, look at the photos from this event. So many people showed up, and they surrounded the Capitol!

I'm curious if these people just make up some date in the future, close enough to be relevant but far enough away that most people will forget, because they know this thing will never happen and want to dip below the media radar because of our national ADD with news

Two days later, somewhere between a few hundred and a thousand demonstrators convened on downtown Washington for the "Million Vets March."

Might have to adjust your expectations a little I guess.

In October, the "Truckers Ride for the Constitution" rally, led by a hodgepodge of conservative truck drivers, was held outside Washington, with the aim of arresting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.). Organizers expected thousands of people to attend. Thirty truckers showed up, led by a woman who believes that Obama and Osama bin Laden are the same person. ("They have same height, bone structure, hands and ears both are left handed," she noted in a YouTube comment).

Missed the mark by a mile on that one.

In 2010, Kate Vandemoer, a birther activist, announced the Usurpathon, a "Rolling 'Velvet Revolution' to Remove the Usurper, et al," from office. The plan was to bring 10,000 protestors to the Mall, Congress, and the White House to lay siege to the administration. Two people showed up.

Comedy gold, Jerry!  Comedy gold!

They'll protest outside the White House by day and set up in campgrounds and RV parks outside the city by night.

ugh.  the traffic here is bad enough already.  also, the area right outside the city isn't exactly rife with campgrounds and RV parks.
 
2014-01-28 11:19:53 AM  
Sometimes I wish these "2nd Amendment Solution" idiots would go through with it.

An armed attack on Washington DC by a bunch of arm-chair tigers with AR-15s wouldn't last long, as soon as the actual US Military was called in to protect the Capitol.

Then we'd be rid of the morons.

Oh, you do not. Just stop. Leaving aside the militia bit (because most of us are technically members of the militia), this is simply not going to happen. It's absurd.

The likelihood of 1.8 million people descending upon the capitol for this event is only slightly more likely than an army of Jennifer Lawrence skinjobs from Eridani revealing themselves the day before and farking us all to a sweet, happy death.

Oh no!  I'm sure that DC police and homeland security are gearing up for this invasion.

You know, teabaggers would be a whole lot funnier if they just wouldn't allow them to vote.  For example, when my mother was so far gone with dementia/Alzheimer's that she stopped recognizing people, I stopped bringing in her absentee ballots.  Your relatively intelligent teabagger would be slightly below my mother at that stage.

Don't tell them that! The highlight of these things is when, you know, like thirty people show up and instead of getting themselves organized or chaining themselves to a gate or chanting or waving their signs or making impassioned speeches, they spend two hours milling around the planned meeting site trying to find the main group. Eventually it dawns on them that they are the main group, but please, let them have that sad little discovery on their own. Don't spoil the surprise!

American Christians have not proven themselves worthy of his direct intervention, because they haven't fought hard enough against things like gay marriage. No, really; they seem increasingly unhinged because they're worried that the actions of their countrymen are damaging their standing in the eyes of God.

And why are they claiming they're "protecting" the Constitution by staging a coup (complete with show trials for the old government by the new "ruling party") to rework it? Is no one eloquent or well-read enough to say "We have to burn the village down to save it"?

And to get even closer to the source, Jesus said "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God".  By 'what belongs to Caesar', Jesus was referring specifically to government-issued currency.  He was a little more vague about what belongs to God, but I think the general consensus is that God gives us all life.

Really I think it's because they don't know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and they think that the line "that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government" applies to them. Of course, they ignore the whole "list of grievances" thing, and the line right after which says "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes," but dammit, if violent secession from the current government was good enough for the Forefathers, that means it has to be the right way to do things.

The funny part is they are estimating they will get between 10-30 million people.

They seem to seriously(?) think they will get 10% of the population to descend on DC. If they somehow managed to get 30 million extra people in DC, and cram them into the park spaces, you'd have someone spaced out every 2 feet or so (rough calcs).

Tell ya what, I was in Rome in 2000 for the World Youth Day. Tons of activities, festivities, and oh, yeah, the Pope. They got an extra 1-2 million people in the city for that (and this is from 1 Billion catholics world-wide). I think the Pope has a slightly higher draw than these guys.

Nope, not thinking of that one. They actually had another march on 9/12/2010 that they said had somewhere in the range of 100,000 to 600,000, depending on which conservative group you believed, while the fire martial estimated a max of 75,000 in attendance at best.

qorkfiend: The tricky part there is the two-thirds bar. I can't see 34 states agreeing to call a convention. And no, they're not aware of the historical comparisons or context of their actions.


Yeah, but they haven't even TRIED that route.

If the impetus for protests like these is "We've exhausted all other means, now it's time for guns," someone should tell them there are unexplored avenues offering remedy for their situation.

'sides which - how many red-state governors are there, and how many legislatures leaning or solidly red? Might not be 34, but in the 20s for sure. If The Marketplace of Ideas accepts Teabagger logic, they should have no problem getting an additional 10ish states to agree to the convention (hell, I'd push for MD to agree to one, and that state is bluer than a sad blue playing a mashup of Blue Monday and Kind of Blue on a JetBlue flight to Berblueda).

To say nothing of proposing specific amendments.

The confluence of those two words are an axiomatic impossibility. Unless we're talking about waging war and protecting property. Providing services is the sole domain of the private sector. And any time the people disagree and elect a government that attempts to provide services that exist outside of the government's limited monopoly on violence (meaning violence against others, specifically those outside our borders and the acceptable mainstream of society) that government is tautologically illegitimate and must be removed. Also through violence.

ikanreed: meat0918: GoodyearPimp: I don't wanna be "that guy" but if the Christian god is all-knowing and all-powerful, why doesn't he do all the hard work in foisting the President from office?  If God doesn't do anything, are those working "in his name" deluded, or are they sinning?

Well, God did "say" this

1 Samuel 15:23  "For rebellion as is the sin of witchcraft."

1 Peter 2:13:  "For the Lord's sake accept the authority of every human institution, whether of the emperor as supreme, or of governors, as sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do right."

Romans 13:1:  "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities; for there is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resist authority resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment."

Don't forget "Slaves, obey your masters".  Always a favorite.


One version of that comes a few verses later in the 1 Peter passage. The probably more well know versions are in Colossians 3 and Ephesians 6. These later two passages also instruct masters to treat their slaves well/fairly. The general context (well, part of the context, especially in the 1 Peter version) is "follow the general rules as best you can so you don't make us all look like trouble makers and jerks".

More importantly, for the context of this discussion and the original question, is what comes just before the verse quoted above from Romans (in 12:14-21):
'Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." To the contrary, "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.'

So, in other words, you just concentrate on being good and getting along with everybody. God will take care of the vengeance thing in His own sweet time.*  **

/*It may not be in your lifetime or on this earth, so, you know, get back to that doing good thing.
//** Constantly telling people that God will take vengeance on them does not constitute "getting along", "do[ing] what is honorable", etc.

They will then biatch about how the federally funded mall and metro didn't serve them well enough. Go figure.

But these clownshoes think they will convince owner-operators to block the beltway, unlike the other past 432 times that was a dumbass idea.

Needlessly Complicated: Dr Dreidel: It occurred to me while responding in another thread:

The Constitution allows The People (in the form of their state governments) to call Constitutional Conventions, yes? So why have we skipped the remedies made available by the Constitution and gone right to "armed insurrection" which is explicitly NOT allowed by the Constitution?

And why are they claiming they're "protecting" the Constitution by staging a coup (complete with show trials for the old government by the new "ruling party") to rework it? Is no one eloquent or well-read enough to say "We have to burn the village down to save it"?

So a few thousand fat drunks on hover-rounds are going to protest for a while then have dinner.

I'm guessing a few dozen. If you're on Twitter (I'm not) maybe you should set up a feed on their progress. The last zillion man march was hilarious, basically a dozen people wandering the mall and not being able to find each other, and yes, the Early Bird Special was mentioned.
 
2014-01-28 01:42:09 PM  

Dimensio: Codenamechaz: So by 1.8 million, I'm assuming they mean more like somewhere around 10 to 50 thousand like their last big "march" in 2010.

You are thinking of the march in 2009, which attracted a very successful crowd, as shown in the picture below:

[latimesblogs.latimes.com image 300x399]

The liberally-biased mainstream MSM media tried to claim that only 10,000 were in attendance, but that picture proves them wrong. Then the more stubborn liberals in the media tried to dispute that picture with typically liberally-biased facts, such as the fact that the weather in the District of Columbia was overcast throughout the day of the rally, or the fact that the National Museum of the American Indian, which opened in 2004, should have been visible in a picture of that area taken in 2009.


Nice troll. It was hilarious when Tea Partiers tried posting pictures of the 2008 inauguration crowd as their own crowd and got themselves to believe their lie.

THAT.

A buddy was in town a few weeks ago, so we walked to the Lincoln Memorial. Out front, there was a group rallying in support new South Korean President Park (or Pak; my apologies for getting it wrong), protesting the usurpation of power by new President Pa(r)k, some guy shouting The 10 Commandments (seriously, he was just shouting Exodus at the top of his lungs), your standard libertarian economist, and various people engaging or counter-protesting those groups.

Ex G/F and I had a ritual of renting a nice hotel room in DC on new year's eve and then visiting the Smithsonian's mall offerings on new year's day.

Yes on divine mandate.  Free will on my decisions.

And since you seem excited about painting me into a dullard's trap: I don't believe God is my personal caretaker.  A divine omnipotence has bigger worries, in my view, and besides: two beings possessed of free will will necessarily contradict each other in the context of limited resources.  It's contradictory to believe that God can both grant free will and personal wishes and have us all share resources.

Okay, now I'm getting into obnoxious theological bullshiat, but power that your own decisions predestines you to not use is power you don't have.  It's not omnipotence.  We're talking about control of literally everything.  It's an absurd concept, one rising out of "my god is better than your god" topperism.  The concept isn't even actually from the bible itself, but came about in the first eras of apologetics, wherein early Christian academics tried to unite their beliefs within a mentally neat philosophical system.

The concept you're defending here isn't even fundamental to your faith, according to its own holy book.

psychometrix: And since you seem excited about painting me into a dullard's trap: I don't believe God is my personal caretaker.


A.  Jesus Christ that's not what I'm saying.
B.  I'm talking about the very nature of absolute control of everything.  The stone is placed there by the will of god, therefor these dipshiats are correct that they're doing god's will by being dipshiats.  The end.  Or the stone is by your will and not gods, and these dipshiats are dipshiats.

I don't believe in the absolute control you're talking about.  I cite free will (and take its existence on faith alone).

I definitely believe that these dipshiats are dipshiats.

And if they get 1.8 million people to show up, I'll sponsor TF for everyone on this thread for the life of Fark

The GOP. Because, if there's one thing we've learned, they can f*ck a chicken.

I'm not raising objections to free will existing.  I'm raising objections to the contradicting assertions that the results of your decisions are manifest as god's will(such as in the stone's location) and that these people being dipshiats somehow not being the same when they claim that.

It will be a needed break for the chickens. They need a break for their stretched out buttholes.

psychometrix: It's contradictory to believe that God can both grant free will and personal wishes and have us all share resources.


So if there is a God, who has given us free will and occasionally answers prayers, that means there aren't enough resources to go around?  That is one of the more bizarre assertions I've seen on Fark.

ning.com is a hosting/community site.  Their "Ultimate" hosting plan, the highest quality plan listed on their site, allows for 100,000 registered users.  For a group that thinks they're going to get 30 million people to go to DC and overthrow the government.  Hahahahahahaha!

That or you misread it.  I never said He answered wishes.  (You can call them prayers if you want.)

nmrsnr: Dr Dreidel: It occurred to me while responding in another thread:

The Constitution allows The People (in the form of their state governments) to call Constitutional Conventions, yes? So why have we skipped the remedies made available by the Constitution and gone right to "armed insurrection" which is explicitly NOT allowed by the Constitution?

And why are they claiming they're "protecting" the Constitution by staging a coup (complete with show trials for the old government by the new "ruling party") to rework it? Is no one eloquent or well-read enough to say "We have to burn the village down to save it"?

// I will be in DC on 16May (because I live there), about a mile from The Mall
// I volunteer to serve as Fark's live-blogger during the Diabetes Spring

Really I think it's because they don't know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and they think that the line "that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government" applies to them. Of course, they ignore the whole "list of grievances" thing, and the line right after which says "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes," but dammit, if violent secession from the current government was good enough for the Forefathers, that means it has to be the right way to do things.


In all fairness? "they" (tea party freepers - or "anti-rino" freepers) are surprisingly verbose and open about their desires to have a Constitutional Convention. These threads tend to be large, supportive of the idea and some contain a "working" idea on how to get the support needed by way of electing local and state candidates - the premise being anyone who gets to washington, no matter how conservative they seem to be, fold once there.
After reading one such freeper thread I came here to ask smarter folk what the point would be for a "Con-Con" and there were some really good replies.
I've no idea if "real patriots" as a body could ever force this to happen, or what their real, workable agenda would be (if any) - but it is a mistake to assume they are ALL addled hoverround jockeys intent only on derping. That so many remain ill-informed gives me hope but even among the most benighted group some few are "idea" people. They also seem to be the ones out of the fray when things go bad.

Don't know if the wisenheimers in charge of this thing have thought their plan through enough.

FTA:
They won't leave until President Barack Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder and congressional leaders of both parties, resign ... Those with the principles of a West, Cruz, Lee, DeMint, Paul, Gov Walker, Sessions, Gowdy, Jordan, Issa, will comprise a tribunal and assume positions of authority to convene investigations, recommend appropriate charges against politicians and government employees to the new U.S. Attorney General appointed by the new President

Um...yeah, yeah, he's President of the Senate, but the Veep isn't legally a part of the Legislative Branch, so if the current President's gone, I think that makes this guy the new President:
