I was scrounging around youtube and saw a short vid on this.

Apparently they want to do this Oct. 11 - 13 which is a weekend.

Here is their Facebook page... https://www.facebook.com/truckerstoshutdownamerica

About Status "The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!"

I wonder how many will actually show up. Why was this not during the week where it would be more effective.

Seeing how only 2 to 3 thousand bikers actually showed up at their million biker march, I am gonna guess only a few hundred.

'2 Million Bikers' Rally Converges on DC for 9/11 Parade

This article reports 880,000....

Not bad for 1000 days of over $3 gas.

50 million people on food stamps

Chronic Unemployment of 15-20 million Americans.

THe Trucker rally should be interesting.

They really do have the power, if they are united, and make a good showing.

Just the fuel backlog will be impressive.

Wonder if EXXON/GLOBAL will feel some bulging tanks?

Absolutely untrue.

The VA police alone reported over three quarter million.

I hope no produce gets in there and no trash moves for 3 or 4 days. Obama is looking to raise the debt ceiling again, which should not be allowed. it's PAY UP time not spending time. This fool is a spendaholic.

Maybe the feds should SELL off some of that ammo huh?

Recall these SOB's

Not even close to 880,000.
Off by two zeros.

I regularly see all the protests and marches in DC. This one was small potatoes. The DC Gay Day parade was around twice as large.
