Pro-Depression Rally In DC Today

Of course that isn't what they are calling it, but how else do you characterize 400 left-wing groups that are coming together to protest for the policies of bailouts, takeovers, bullying and bigger government that has this nation spiraling deeper in debt and away from prosperity?

"This is certainly an opportunity to remind similarly aligned progressives what’s at stake in November," said Fred Sainz, a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign, which advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. "Elections have consequences. There will be very few progressives who will prosper under a Republican Congress."

That's pretty much the point, Fred.

Americans are sick and tired of progressives prospering at the expense of our current economy, our nation's culture, and the future of our children. We don't was to see our nation decline into a second-rate nation so that you can file hate crimes charges at someone who turns up their nose just because you decide to prance down the street in high heels and a feather boa.

We're also tired of public officials raping the taxpayers at large to payoff narrow-minded and exclusive special interests and thuggish unions.

We want simple things: an America that allows Americans a chance to prosper, an opportunity to grow, and the room to dream. Progressive politics are constrictive, choking the life out of our republic.

Bus in your paid-for day laborers, freaks and thugs, your stoners and university Marxists, your limousine liberals, eco-fascists, and racial supremacist groups. It will not matter.

November is coming, and we remember what you have tried. We are of no specific color, age, creed, or nationality, but we remember what America once was, and what it will be again once you are defeated.

We certainly can't return to the hellish Bush policies, which saw gays and lesbians rounded up and... uh... well, I mean the ones which criminalized abortion and established a theocracy... ummm...

Here's the point: after eight years of unending chicken little posturing and wailing about the Dark Night of RethugliKKKan Fascism, nobody's buying that crap any more. Not even the hard core lefties believe in it, if they ever did. They've shot their bolt, and like the hollow charge of racism, their hysterical shrieks sound like... hysterical shrieks. Earsplittingly loud, incredibly annoying, but empty froth, notto mention outlandishly stupid. Their slanders comparing the Republicans to the Taliban and Bush to Hitler have gotten old, and nobody's buying that brand of snake oil any more.

Does anyone have estimates of crowd size? Did anyone see SSEIU thugs patrolling to keep skeptics out? From what I've seen so far, the turnout was disappointing.
