60 to 70 thousand people my a$$!

You lefties can continue to try and marginalize this movement, but it isn't going away no matter how much you wish.

If you had bothered to actually read my post you would understand that the quoted estimate was off of the ABC news website, it wasn't something I pulled out of my "leftist" butt pal. I wasnt' trying to marginalize anything, but to show that the same source can report widely different estimates, which seems to indicate a completly untrustworthy source. That untrustworthy source isn't me but ABC news. Isn't that obvious if their estimates vary from 70,000 to 2 million?

Without regard to the actual number this has become a national movement the likes of which no one alive today has ever seen. It will continue to grow. I am not sure if obama dropped his socialist ideas and became a "conservative" that it would falter. The American people have seen what could happen and want safe guards to prevent this from ever happening again!

Are how many were there really important? The fact is there were many and it is growing. The crowds are as far as the eye can see and beyond. They are proving we do have a voice and we can fight and be heard without violence. Get enough people together and they have nothing to do but listen and hear us, the people they claim to represent. If we can keep it building we can have a great and mighty Revalution and take back our government. We are a government created "by the people and for the people. One nation under God." It is time for us to stand and teach our children and to fight back.

You seem to have combined parts of my post in ways I hadn't intended. The article you linked to was very specific in that the 60-70k # was the fire departments estimate for the march, not the rally on the mall. That # was being reported before the march even began at 9:00AM. FoxNews (you know, the evil rightwing News agency) still refuses to characterize the crowd with anything greater than "10s of thousands" despite the evidence of at least 100s of thousands of people participating.

As for the leftist remark....If you're not a leftest then I apologize for even implying you are one. However if you are a leftist then the remark stands....pal!

Hear Hear!!

Yes it is important to teach our children about our great country. However we as families must do it as our education system is not doing their job in that respect! In talking with my sister, a retired teacher, we have been negligent in education for probably 20 years and that in a conservative area.

Is CBS news considered a leftist liberal commie pig news outlet, or can we assume a modicum of credibility there? Here's an interesting article naming the sources of exaggerated figures given in the millions of attendees - what a surprise, one was Freedomworks, the sponsors themselves! Yes, the fire and emergency squads, an independent non-political organization which has nothing politically to gain by any estimate enhancements are untrustworthy. Sure they are...... They're not compelled to sensationalize like news organizations either, whose livelihoods are dependent on viewership.

How the hell did I combine parts of your post in ways you hadn't intended when all of what I quoted from your post was in the same post? The latest link mentions estimates of attendees at the mall, as well as the exaggerated attendence estimates.

Please tell me how a time lapsed film of people in Washington DC provides any authoritative proof of attendance numbers? How exactly did you determine how many people were in the film? Your attempt to agrandize this movement doesn't lend it greater credibility either nor is there any meaning in the phrase "you lefties" outside of the realm of your own obtuse subjectivity.

So I can assume from your last you consider yourself a leftist? unsure.gif

Ah! A leading question. The left/right dichotomy is your paradigm sir. As for your assumptions, I think what you've assumed is evident. Now if accuracy of perception and clarity is your goal in asking the question, my suggestion is give up the paradigm entirely, though I suspect the suggestion will be met with deaf ears. Labels contribute little to understanding, but only limit and pigeonhole both people and perspectives.

Those in the Tea Party groups cover the entire political spectrum though it could be reasonably assumed that all are capitalists.
