  • Fyi- Sunday march 13th 1600hrs

    " Mark your calendars, because on Sunday, March 13 at 4 p.m. Eastern, supporters of the right-wing group Stand Up America are going to pull to the shoulder of major highways en masse to "send a clear message that cannot be twisted by the media, misinterpreted by politicians, or co-opted by Obama apologists" — or, make a few motorists wonder, "Hey, did that guy's car break down?". "

    This should only be a problem if traffic is obstructed, or liberals get wind of it.
    I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

      It's all fun and games until a distracted motorist smacks into a car killing a 5 year old.....

        Oh boy... a line of cars illegally parked along the interstate just begging for a ticket. It must be my birthday six months early :P

          Ok, a peaceful demonstration. Who cares as long as they aren't obstructing traffic.

            Are you suggesting that we write tickets to make a political point?

              So, they are going to park, in single file, out of the lane of travel, not blocking intersections, leave their engines on to burn the fuel they paid for, in a vehicle they own and have insured, in order to talk or text on or via a hand-held electronic device that they own or lease and pay the air-time for?

              Wow, I can not believe the magnitude of this pending insurrection - sounds very Canadian!

                Yeaaaaaahhh... After reading through all that twice, I'm not sure what the "clear message" is or what they're protesting.

"

                      Inspired by Sarah Palin commenting that the Obama administration's actions are putting the nation on the "road to ruin," the group is encouraging followers to "vent your frustration, without being labeled, or maligned!" in the "Just Stop!" event. Here's the plan:

                      • We want everyone to get into their cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, Semis, box trucks, and any other vehicle, and drive to your nearest highway or main route;
                      • Don't go far, just enough to get in a safe position to pull over to the shoulder, and park, engine running, headlights and flashers on;

                      • Why? To take a cell call, or make one or several. After all, law enforcement recommends that you pull over to the side to take your call or text.

                      • Hook up a boat trailer, a snow mobile hauler, or anything to make the line look miles and miles long, bring your tractor-trailer;

                      • Set up a long motorcycle run to a STOP;

                      • Get your car club involved to show off those great hot rods and collectibles;

                      • Imagine others driving by wondering "what the heck"? Wave to everyone;

                      • Get ten friends to do the same; or go to an over pass and hang temporary signs saying – "Time to stop!" Just imagine the imagery! But be SAFE!

                      • Once pulled over to the side, place calls or texts to your friends, take pictures, send tweets, flood Facebook with messages and photos, along with several million others on other highways across the land.

                      • Stay one hour if you can, get your friends to do the same, line up all your vehicles in a safe manner as far off the side as you can, and hit your horns.

                      • One hour gives the media a chance to react, a chance to get footage. Imagine the traffic reports!

                      • Hang a sign inside your back window, or use temporary soap to write a message safely on the window;

                      • Be a part of millions of people saying: "Stop the madness, we are pulling over and just stopping!"
                      I swear to god, if this happens, they're ALL getting tickets for improper use of horn!

                          That's one of the dumbest ideas for a protest I've ever heard. Someone in Cali must've come up with it...
                          Other officer: Oh that's right, I forgot, you're God's gift to police work.
                          Me: At least someone recognizes it.

                          Turns out basic police work isn't so hard, you just have to leave the station.

                            Yeah, I'm with you. What, exactly, are they saying? "JUST STOP!!!" OK, stop what?
                            If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.
