No more than 10 million for sure.

what, are the Derpcemberists playing?

No.

It will be the Insane Derp Posse.

I would love to see the black bloc anarchists go all-in for this, though.

James!: No more than 10 million for sure.

Forget people. I'd actually be shocked if that many brain cells showed up to this thing.

It sorta reminds me of insurance commercials. "You could save up to 30% or more!" So, I could save some amount of money that exists as a real number? Well that's a relief. I'm sure the number of people who show up will be an actual number, probably a positive one, and likely to be an integer.

16 German tourists

This event is really starting to shape up.

Based on past such events, on the order of 200 attendees, and a comparable number of press/TV folk covering the silliness.

The people who hold the power in the US are the house and senate.  We are in this mess because of the Republican house.   Nothing will change until they do.

Speech to text translation problem.

They're actually expecting 10 milling protesters.
 
2014-05-14 02:17:57 PM  
They should get the word out to the OWS folks, I'm sure they can make time in their busy shedules for some loafing and loitering downtown.
 
2014-05-14 02:18:05 PM  
I would bet any amount of money that not a tenth of that figure appear.
 
2014-05-14 02:18:17 PM  
Huhuh... they're coming to "depose" the President? Good luck with that!!!

Please tell me the riot police has been cleared to airfoil anyone riding a Rascal.
 
2014-05-14 02:19:16 PM  
And when only 100 show up, organizers will respond with:

Folks thought it would rain
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

He has, but he's only one guy.

Ten, a million, whichever.
 
2014-05-14 02:20:30 PM  
Is that some type of salesperson math?

Salesperson math is where you should expect to sell 1/10-1/30th the volume used by management and the saleforce to study the cost feasability of a project.
 
2014-05-14 02:20:38 PM  
I'm looking forward to the hilarity this should generate no matter how it turns out.

/In before our local CW 2.0 retards show up.
//Annnnnnnnny day now...

We appreciate your money, tourist idiots.  Two things, don't drive.  Really.  Also, walk left, stand right.

vernonFL: Whargrblpooza: the gathering of the Derpalos.


AKA, The March of the Jeans Shorts.

I work a couple blocks from the White House, so I'd love to walk down and see these clowns up close on Friday. Too bad it's supposed to rain all day.

Actually, that's not too bad.
 
2014-05-14 02:22:19 PM  
You know, at some point, some of these people have to stop and think, "Maybe the fact that I can openly talk about overthrowing the government and not end up in a gulag or with a bullet in my skull means that things really aren't as bad as I'm saying they are", don't they?
 
2014-05-14 02:22:21 PM  
The important thing is that they have fun and stay angry and bitter.

Comedy gold.

Given that I, someone who spends WAY too much time chewing through odd news and whatnot on here, with a network of friends quite all over the ideological spectrum in DC, haven't heard of this tells me that probably one out of every 30 people in the country aren't going to DC this weekend for a rally.

Yes, I know that sounds vain but I feel like it would have at least crept on to my radar.
 
2014-05-14 02:23:07 PM  
Derp Purple, with special guests Deep Derple?
 
2014-05-14 02:23:37 PM  
If you read their actual press release, they say "from 10 to 30 million".   So if 10 people show up, they're good!

Quite amusing that they want to remove Pelosi - do they think she actually has any impact on anything the government does while in the House minority? I moved from her district to south Florida, and the hate for her was over the top. When asked what she's actually done to merit that, you never get an answer.

cognitive dissonance is the air they breathe.
 
2014-05-14 02:23:50 PM  
10,000,000 = 10^7 so I'm guessing 7 people show up.

I loved reading the dispatches from the trucker's rally that was going to bring the city and the Fed'rul Gummermint to its knees.

"Where is everyone?"

"We're by the stairs!"

"I don't see a group by the stairs"

"There's only two of us"

Oooooh! Don't forget the food truck vendors! There are three or four that sometimes head down to the Mall.

I had that thought about 25 years ago. Ahhhhhhh, no. They just can't think that way. Something's wrong neurologically.

Is that Larry Craig?  He's probably imagining that microphone is a cock.  Because he likes to suck cock.
