Operation American Spring

Today, the modern incarnation of the John Birch Society is transporting the entire population of Ohio (at least 10 million patriots) to the 146 acres of Washington Mall to stay there until President Obama is forcibly removed from the White House. (Sanity Check: That's half a square foot per person). By the mass of humanity and the force of their numbers they plan to shut down the government until their demands are met.

Unfortunately, its drizzling today in Washington and brave patriots like these hate getting a little wet so turnout has been somewhat below predictions. The attendance is more like the population of Hoot and Holler, Texas. Their own video. The early "live stream" consisted of one guy webcaming from his RV while his wife is looking for a place to park.
(Sanity Check: If they were bringing 10 million people in town, there would not be a place to park.)

But, Twitter is alive with the voice of the Second American Revolution.

One speaker said he understood if people couldn't get to Washington, but they can go to their state capitol. Or they can go to their county seat. And if that's not possible, they can set up a lawn chair in their front yard. Which means somewhere in our great land there are 9,999,000 revolting Americans sitting in lawn chairs for freedom.
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Or, if that's inconvenient, you can use Bud Lite.
