      Great idea ! We’ll see. Other great ideas are being squished this weekend with the Battle of the Left and Right’s Media Blitzes and Hackers. 😉

      Not working 😦 It’s been a long afternoon. OFA trolls are taking over the twit feeds and FB with stupid stuff. Then again, there doesn’t seem to be a central area to gather at. State Police in Va and Md have shut down the suburban rest areas where the truckers were supposed to stage at.

      Damn, these revolutions are hard work. 😉 Going back to look for honest media now…….

        “State Police in Va and Md have shut down….”

        If true one of the stupidest moves State Police Administrators in those states could make. Truckers are oft times the closest and fiercest ‘backups’ for imperiled patrol officers on major interstates – particularly after dark.
        To antagonize or thwart them for political purposes as a favor to the feds is like flattening a tire on your patrol car. It won’t stop you, but it sure makes your job harder and more dangerous.

    More from DC area news. Have to weed through a lot of “losers” posts to get to the news on twitter 😉

    The official meme was that it was a total bust.

    Yep. That is why I could not get decent traffic reports and the sites would just spin because the cameras were “not functioning”.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Let’s see. It’s Friday of a three day week-end, and it’s already a “total bust”? Only in someone’s wildest imagination. Sane people know it’s too soon to tell. Spin doctors, OTOH, are shameless and never sleep.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think the organizers were unprepared for the onslaught of traffic (support sites have been crashing all day) and the OFA slamming twitter feeds like #T2SDA. Whew, huh. I’ll keep hunting….

    Found this video posted on FB, hope link works since I don’t know how to embed FB videos. Truckers leaving Doswell, VA rest area about an hour or so ago ? This is about 1-2 hours south of DC:
