Truckers Ride To The Constitution
'It's The End Times!'

Michele Bachmann Thinks It's Armageddon Read More »

Earlier in the week, Georgia trucker Earl Conlon told U.S. News And World Report that the following would occur this Friday in Washington D.C. as part of a rally called “Truckers Ride for the Constitution.”

[T]ractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway “three lanes deep” as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution.
The truckers circling I-495 will keep the left lane open for emergency vehicles, Conlon said, but “everybody that doesn’t have a supporter sticker on their window, good luck: Nobody in, nobody out.” The trucks will be going the 55 mile-per-hour speed limit.
D.C. commuters who wish to be allowed past the convoy must have “T2SDA” – an acronym for the event’s original name, “Truckers to Shut Down America” – written on their vehicle, he said.
“It’s going to be real fun for anyone who is not a supporter,” Conlon said, “[and] if cops decide to give us a hard time, we’re going to lock the brakes up, we’re going to stop right there, we’re going to be a three lane roadblock.”

Conlon cited the idea of a citizens grand jury – meaning a pool of jurors convened without court approval – as the mechanism for indicting the officials.
“We want these people arrested, and we’re coming in with the grand jury to do it,” he said. “We are going to ask the law enforcement to uphold their constitutional oath and make these arrests. If they refuse to do it, by the power of the people of the United States and the people’s grand jury, they don’t want to do it, we will. … We the people will find a way.”

Except what sounded like an incredible recipe for watching 18-wheelers get launched off the highway for being anti-teamster idiots (Proof: They think exactly like Michele Bachmann.) is suddenly being back-pedaled as just a hoax because here’s Earl telling the Washington Post the whole thing was to “ruffle some feathers.”

“The comments to U.S. News were designed to do one thing and one thing only: stir the feather of the mainstream media,” said Conlon, a father of three. “Nothing gets the attention of the mainstream media like some sort of disastrous threat. I knew it was going to ruffle some feathers.”
So while thousands of truckers may indeed come to Washington on Friday and many of them may travel along the inner loop of the Beltway, honking their horns, they won’t intentionally shut down traffic, he said.
“First of all, we know it would not be right to go to D.C. to lock down the city by the Belt loop,” said Conlon, 50, a veteran truck driver who has suffered through more than his share of traffic jams. “That wouldn’t be fair to the people there.”
And Conlon is not sure that he will even make it to town Friday.

Of course, I’m sure this has nothing to do with the Capitol Police having already demonstrated they’ll shoot a woman with a toddler in the car, so God knows what they’d do with a bunch of tweaked out truckers attempting to physically kidnap senators. Which, again, makes it a shame that this turned out to be just more macho posturing with absolutely zero chance of being backed up by action. Nugent-esque if you will.

  1. teddy

    I don’t see any tits or ass so why is this here?

    • I see another crybaby…why the F*CK are you here?

      • teddy

        I’m here to see hot celebs, couldn’t have made it more clear zombiedouchebag.

      • So, you’re so fucking stupid that you clicked on a story that was absofuckinglutely guaranteed to be hot celeb-free and whine about it, instead of clicking on one of the many, many boobie stories? Are you seriously that retarded?

    • why, theodore, truckers have outstanding Moobs.

    • Despite the fact there are at least 5 tits/legs posts today to satisfy the viewing pleasure of those who come here for that express purpose, teddy is under the impression that if he once again tries to nail himself to a cross as a martyr for tit-post deprivation it will disguise the fact that what he really can’t handle is Fish’s on-target ridicule of the more extreme elements in a certain party. This wily and clever ruse will most certainly pressure him to cease and desist on this front! Yes!

      Unfortunately, what teddy repeatedly fails to realize that since Fish’s bread and butter is actually T & A posts, he won’t short anyone and will, in fact, compel Photo Boy to produce all that’s going around unclothed and revealed for the day. And since he’s the writer and can put up as many posts per day as he pleases, he can keep the revenue stream flowing yet still indulge his own interests, all without giving two shits about having to pander to teddy’s poorly-disguised ulterior motive.

      The bottom line is that teddy is either a drooling masochist or a very slow learner since I weed-whacked his sorry ass down to a nub over this topic yesterday. Or it could be both – my bet is that it’s taken him a year to get up to page 47 in Fifty Shades of Grey. Sad, really.

    Anything that impedes the progress of the members of the Party of the KKK aka the Democrat Party is a win for the American People.

    • The white supremacists/southerners left the Democratic Party to join the Republicans decades ago. At least try and apply some basic history. Just some.

      • Haha, Fish was dominated. Well done and thank you :)

        Top lels

      • Wow, good job, you found ONE.

      • Let’s not forget good old Strom Thurmond

        Strom was so racist that Trent Lott had to resign just for saying something nice about Thurmond at his birthday party.

        Let’s be clear about how “racially sensitive” the Democrats are. Strom Thurmond was a member of their own party, but was such a racist that when a Republican praised him, the Republican had to go…but the super racist Thurmond was welcome to stay.

        Democrats hates racism like Rosie O’Donnell hates pie.

      • JC

        Didn’t Strom switch to the Republican party in the early 60s? Just sayin’.

      • Oh for fuck’s sake, people need to stop embarrassing themselves and wiki “Southern Strategy”, because the idea that the Democratic and Republican parties during the Civil War bear any resemblance to them today is a pretty idiotic one. Major shit happened in this country after WWII when Truman desegregated the Armed Forces in ’48 and civil rights legislation was enacted about a decade and a half later. That’s why, in 1964, Goldwater and Nixon crafted the best scare tactic campaign to come along since McCarthy’s witch hunt for Reds, which garnered the Republican party a shit-ton of racists who were convinced black people being able to sit at a lunch counter next to them would spell the end of civilization.

        1964 is also, not so coincidentally, the year that Strom Thurmond became a Republican. Do the fucking math, people.

      • amen to justifiable, again. a better reference point for some of these mouth droolers might be the Whig party. and their counterbalance the Democratic-Republican party.

      • Sorry, meant to give you props in my post downstream for mentioning that exact switch and realized I hadn’t. All credit is due.

      • Sorry to JC, that is. The stacking here seems to be a bit off.

      • cc

        Rosie O’Donnell hates pie?

      • Montana, your posts here have made me laugh many times. I would consider it a personal favor if you could see your way clear to never mentioning Bobby Byrd ever again. As someone who grew up in West Virginia, I can only apologize so many times for him and his existence. At least his last major notable act was standing in opposition to invading Iraq. After that it was just more drooling dementia.

      • To be fair though, calling the Democrats “The party of the KKK” is like calling the USA “The nation of slavery”. It happened, it was bad, but pretty much everybody who was involved with the Klan and stayed in politics (Including Harry Freakin’ Truman, no less) ended up repudiating racism and expressing regret for their involvement in it.

        Politicians will politic, though, still cheerfully use racism or race-baiting to their advantage anytime they can, which includes accusing the other side of the same.

      • And in case no one has noticed, Robert Byrd is fucking DEAD, and he exited from the Klan over FIFTY fucking years ago. He repudiated the Klan and their ideas many times of the years from 1952 until his death in 2010. On the other hand, maybe he really is relevant.

      • Make that SIXTY fucking years ago…

  3. If your “protest” doesn’t affect the people you’re pissed off at, but makes people who might have been sympathetic to your cause hate you…you’re doing it wrong.

  4. Cock Dr

    I hope that Mr Conlon suffers many flat tires in his future…he reads like quite the idiot douchebag.

  5. if you add some sharks and explosions, this could be the premise for a Michael Bay film.

    • Dr. JFever

      If you added that chick with the weird thumb in a wet tight t-shirt bouncing on a trampoline —- then yes a Bay film.

  6. Extrajudicial:
    That which is done, given, or effected outside the course of regular judicial proceedings. Not founded upon, or unconnected with, the action of a court of law, as in extrajudicial evidence or an extrajudicial oath.

    So these pinheads are essentially a bunch of vigilantes who want to try/prosecute those they disagree with. They are basically Judge, Jury and one could extrapolate Executioners. Let’s see, what other group acts liKKKe that? Who could it be?

    Say what you want about Democrats, but even the Occupy guys didn’t come close to the kind of insane goon-squad idiocy spouted by conservatards

    • Hey Fella, Are You George Zimmerman?

      I’ll always remember when the tea party fuck heads walked around with stuffed monkeys and posters of President Obama depicted as an African Chieftain, the conversatives called it freedom of speech and downplayed the shit out of it. Then, a few dirty hippies (a lot of them libertarians, by the way) sit on a wall street corner, Fox News and their brown shirt veiwers were up in arms.

  7. Hey Fella, Are You George Zimmerman?

    Yay! Another political post!

  8. Kodos

    It ruffled YOUR feathers, didn’t it?

    Besides, that silly woman getting shot in the compact is hardly indicative of the noble strength of the DC police.

    Hell, didn’t you see what a pissed-off 18wheeler can do in Maximum Overdrive?

  9. I knew this was bullshit as soon as I heard about it. Unfortunately, I expect it to be the major plot point of the next “Die Hard” sequel.

  10. Minky Wail

    Earl Conlon – a victim of his own stringent “Gas, grass,or ass, nobody rides for free” idealism.

  11. I’d just post a “meetup” at a roadside rest stop off the beltway on and it would divert 90% of the traffic.

  12. jack

    My dad told me about a bunch of farmers pulling some shit like this in the late 70′s/early 80′s. Metro PD wouldn’t do squat, but the Park Police did some SERIOUS damage to the hay-seeds farm equipment.

  13. Caitlin

    Hey Fish,

    I am willing to bet that given the opportunity, you would drop to your knees and give Barack Obama a proper meatbath right in front of your parents just to show your undying love for the man.

    How can any of you braindead liberals still believe that Obama is different than any other crooked politician that has come along? Do you honestly still believe the BS coming out of DC?

    • lily

      Caitlin, i love fish. And would definitely meatbath the shit out of him. But he doesnt worship Obama. This is more about this idiot troll trucker. Just address the trucker and the fact that all these woodwork creeping big stink tea baggers just want attention. From Bachmann to Conlon, they are telling psycho lies for press. Conlon wants to sell his crappy book. And George Zimmerman is a DEMOCRAT. So im not saying all assholes are teabaggers. I love these political posts because they’re funny and I don’t care for boobs, so shut up and dont click on these. Anus

  14. If you’re trying to say that this bunch of 18-wheeled patriots are actually just a bunch of mouthy taint skins lacking the stones to follow through with civil disobedience….

    Yeah, I got nothin’.

  15. Kodos

    Facts, if anyone cares….

        “While I applaud the goal of making an impact on Washington, the dates chosen for the actions could not be more idiotically planned. The protests will likely fizzle out because they were organized over a weekend and don’t have widespread support.” – Michael Parkhurst, Chairman of the Independent Truckers Association

        Earl Conlon ‏@hbtrux 12:17 PM – 7 Oct 13
        @VacuumDude i get it your being funny.. the idea is Friday DC can’t leave either. they have to deal with the people.

        @DocThompsonShow it is about calling for the ARREST of all who committed treason. it is about shutting off their POWER an Money

      • Thanks. I couldn’t figure out how to do that. Glad you know how a computer works Justifiable.

      • Phil, I pulled the highlights because I had time on my hands and Parkhurst’s quote was too good to pass up when combined with Conlon’s obvious limp-dick excuses, not because I was trying to steal any thunder from you or imply that you couldn’t do the same. I think you’re one of the best posters on here and I enjoy your comments. Plus, you can cook.

      • No I actually couldn’t figure out how. I don’t get twitter at all. I wanted to do that but couldn’t figure out how to get more than one tweet at a time which seemed tedious to me.

      • In re-reading my thing, it sure came across snarky though. Sorry about that. Twitter just doesn’t really make sense to me.

      • Gotcha now – glad to see I misinterpreted. I don’t get twitter either, so when you pointed out that he totally incriminated himself by it I googled “earl conlon twitter feed” and there it was, unrolled like a noxious, bedbug-ridden carpet. It was tedious to cut ‘n’ paste, tho, because this nimrod is all over the map with paranoid accusations and whatnot. Sort of validates our mutual aversion to it, right there.

        The best part is that earlier this year/end of last, it’s full of “Stay at home moms earns $974/week online. find out how” spam.

    • Dr. JFever

      Free Republic? Really that is your source? Going to quote that loon Beck next? Go away you teabagging scum troll

    • Well, this site looks to be fair and balan – BWAHAHAHAHA!

      *wipes eyes* Sorry, I tried to do that with a straight face and just couldn’t.

  16. @nerdslashgeek already has that covered.

  17. All Is Well !....

    ..said the uninformed idiot with his head in the sand

  18. Patriot

    I hope all of you are going to man up and woman up and let this diversity roll by marrying, having kids with a black person, or any other person other than your race.
