Insulting them by calling them anything other than what they are as law abiding citizens is what is infuriating them to the point of demonstrating. I hope everyone takes a part in invoking their 1st amendment rights and fight the administration that insults them. At least my congressman supports medical liability reform, grants to states to establish high risk insurance pools for people with pre-existing conditions, a plan for individuals to purchase insurance nation wide instead of state by state, tax credits some of which are already in place if you actually work, and health savings accounts where people are responsible for their own healthcare spending. These people are not led by billionaires but just sick of the executive BS and more intelligent than the sheep with their hands out on the dole.
    The only estimates I have seen as high as 2 million were based on a photo that was taken before the construction of the National Museum of the American Indian which opened five years ago. ABC, which was quoted as saying that the crowd totaled 1.2 million issued a statement indicating that neither it nor any of its affiliates ever made any such claim. Rather, abc.com estimated the crowd at 60-70,000 based on comments from the DC Fire Department and the stations simply said that there were tens of thousands in attendance.

    An estimate is a guesstimate just like the estmate of the crowd before Obama in Berlin...it all depends whose side or more correctly which media is making the estimate...but the numbers will be going nowhere but up as people stand up for the truth, and this is what its about...lies and deception.

    So crowd estimates vary. 60,000 or 2,000,000.

    Ultimitely what outcome do you predict?

    Subvert the dominant paradigm?

    Good Luck

    What outcome will there be? I'm not a psychic. I just hope that people that have worked all their lives don't have to relinquish what they saved and were required to be put into social security divided up for those that sat on their asses and expected government handouts.Those that worked all their lives in hopes of pursuing life,liberty, and happiness are the people that are protesting.

    The estimates of 2M are a joke. The fire department knows how to estimate crowds. I like that, estimates vary... I've been in a crowd of 2 million people. It will literally shut a town down. Two million people packed shoulder to shoulder, chest to back, with no breathing space in between will fill an area around 450 feet wide by 1 mile long. The mall in DC is 309 acres. If you put 2M people on the mall, and each took up a square 2.5 x 2.5 feet, the mall would be absolutely packed one end to the other. They would be tightly packed enough that you couldn't walk through the crowd.

    Someone from our area who went to DC over the weekend reported this:
    I went to DC last Saturday. I never saw so many people in my life. It was reported yesterday a university from Illinois (I think I heard) came up with 1.7 million people from a satellite imagery system program.

    As far as I can tell, Beck invented this count on the spur of the moment during his Fox & Friends comments on Tuesday. He cited an unnamed (and still unnamed) "university" that had done some study, dismissing what he characterized as the "official" estimate of 60,000 (there was no official estimate since the Parks Service is not longer allowed to provide such counts after controversy on the numbers of attendees in prior demonstrations.).

    That 60,000 is more than what showed up several years ago at the Million Man March and look at the publicity it recieved!

    Actually, that was the last time the Parks Service did an official count. They announced that 400,000 had shown up when the organizers were saying that there were 1.7 million. In any event, it seems to have been massively larger than this past weekend. Maybe that's where the photo came that was circulated on conservative blogs to prove the claim of more people.
