Maybe there is hope

By all accounts the 2 million motorcycle ride did not reach the 2 million goal but it was still hundreds of thousands and the million monkey Muslim march had a total of 25 so maybe there is hope for the country. Another bright note is the motorcycle ride snarled traffic for hours in and around DC but it seems most of the people stuck in the traffic jambs were happy to get out of their cars and wave or toot their horn in support of the riders.




This picture tells a lot, notice the flag on the cranes on the overpass (you can bet they had no permit for that) Also notice all the people on the overpass and standing on the right side of the road. There are cars stopped on the opposite side at the ramp as well. Many police and troopers helped block traffic for the riders even though they had no permit.
This is a stark contrast to the 25 or so the MMM. You can also bet this scene was played out many time around the city yesterday.
One quote I read was classic it said it was fitting that the Muslims were surrounded by hundreds of thousands of Hogs (Hog being a slang for Harley Davidson Motorcycles)

  2. You know why the MM failed?? Muslims don't like HOGS!! HAHAHA. MM was bound to fail, because they fear all AMERICANS. I would like to see this happen in every city on 9-11. Oh the sound, rolling thunder indeed.

  6. 100 foot aerial ladder trucks, to be exact. lol

    I get to climb one when we go home, for old time's sake. But they don't realize I've aged since I retired and will need to be lifted in the bucket. (age is embarrassing)

    I knew what you meant by "hog". Joe laughed and said he needed to hear something funny.

    Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, and HAWG RIDERS. The very last remnants of America and getting fewer every day.

  8. I saw a snarky little story on the CNN web page whining about their effrontery in riding without a government issued permit.

    1. Harry, I bet they would really have had a fit if they knew some of them were carrying concealed weapons because I know some of them were.

  9. 880,000 Bikers was the last estimate I heard, and I'd also add they were PATRIOTS!!!
