    The first picture listed in this post is not from today’s event. It’s been debated on the actual Trucker’s facebook page. Besides, it’s raining in DC as you can see in other images from today, that picture is very sunny/dry.

    They’re shutting down traffic in DC? They should’ve stayed home, DC traffic always looks like this. And it’s pouring rain here, it would be shut down anyway. They’re wasting diesel fuel…

    • James

      “Wasting”…? Really.? I feel it is a good use of fuel.. have you not seen what they are driving for.. Sheep!?

    • Phillip Easter

      • John Huffman

        There are five trucks in this photo, in front of the cars. Even if they did cause a traffic jam, what the hell is that supposed to prove? Where are the tens of thousands of truckers that you guys said were going to show up?

        This is pathetic, and you know it perfectly well.

  • Paul Brainard

    It’s pouring in DC. That’s not from today.

    • KG

      did you watch the video? It rhetorical, I know you didn’t b/c if you had you wouldn’t have posted

  • Jamie Paul Bennett

    how do u pull over someone going under the speed limit following someone going under the speed limit

  • vicki

    at least they have the guts to get out and try to do something to get our government back

    • Judy

      Right on Vicki, at least their trying to do something, unlike some of these blow hards.

    • joeybot

      That’s right, 30 trucks doing something completely ineffectual!

      I bet you’re one of the people who made fun of the Occupy Movement for wasting their time, right?

    America needs to shut down ..And Show the GOVERNMENT who pays their checks..

    • Mandy

      Well that’s a great sentiment but seeing as members of Congress, etc. are still being paid… the shutdown doesn’t seem to be hurting them too badly…

  • James

    Even if not as many show up as expected.. Let this be a good incentive that people can stand together for a very good cause.. This protest was only broke up because of weather. Not anything else.. And this is going on nationwide.. I 100% support our truckers.. they bring us everything we need to survive.. Can’t say the same for our over reaching government

    • KEITH LITTLEFIELD

      thank you so much for supporting use truck drivers out there on the road trying to do our job to keep things moving i am a driver my self have been for 23 years now we wish we had more people like you out here supporting us i an every trucker thank you for your support

    • GreenEagle

      “Not as many show up as expected?” They predicted a million, they got 30. That’s not “not as many,” it is a colossal, humiliating failure which demonstrates that those of you who sit out there typing out your right wing comments night and day represent almost no one in this country.

    • joeybot

      How does bad weather stop a truck? I have a busted up car and I can drive in the rain.

  • James

    We have 2 more days of P8ssed off people to jam up that beltway.. God speed truckers

  • LLinLa

    Why do I all of a sudden feel the urge to belt out “God Bless America?” Put those hammers down and speak for us who don’t have big wheels! Roll with pride, truckers!

  • anonygoose

    Dozens not thousands…. This was an epic fail !! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ytCEuuW2_A The government is laughing at them LOL so are we… Troll on Truckers Troll on…. http://prntscr.com/1wphzy

  • BeautifulAmerica

    LOVE YOU GUYS! Thank you all for standing up for America, our Republic.

  • bucky

    They are working harder than anyone in Washington D.C. except for the president transforming America with the help of the Senate and Congress…They all need to go to jail for not following the Constitution. Not the Constitution as O see’s it. GO TRUCKERS!!!!!!

  • Chrystal Myghty

    Misinformed Morons for ‘Merica!

  • Bryan David Hale

    how can you tell if the truckers are protesting or just doing what they do all the time. ALL THE F#$^ING TIME!

  • Realtor1

    The whole country needs to shut the lights off and go home. When there is no business open or no lights on, I bet Congress will do something. We need a National Strick!

  • joeybot

    They better be gone by tomorrow, because they forget they’re in VIRGINIA and I got a gun.

    • James W.

      like you are going to stop all the truckers. good luck with making terroristic threats too

      • joeybot

        Not ALL the truckers. I’ll just get a few!

        Stop whining about terroristic threats, when people say that stuff about Obama or liberals I bet you get a stiffy.
