Wow: Truckers Intend To Slow Beltway Traffic to a Crawl, Creating a Three-Lane Deep Rolling Roadblock, In Support of the Constitution

They're going to be doing the speed limit, 55, which is its own sort of joke, but if that's what The State says the legal limit is, well. You can't arrest someone for doing 55 then can you?

Organizers of the three-day ride want to call attention to a litany of trucker frustrations and express their disapproval of national political leaders.

Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling logistics for the protest, told U.S. News tractor-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."

Zeeda Andrews, a former country music singer helping promote the protest, said last week participants would present demands to congressmen – including the impeachment of President Barack Obama – and give the congressmen an opportunity to agree to the demands in exchange for canceling the ride.

They seem chiefly animated by what they claim is Obama's "unconstitutional" arming of rebels in Syria, which is like one of the few things he's done that isn't unconstitutional, but forget it, they're rolling. I support their general F.U. attitude.

This will be an interesting thing: The left does things like this all the time and they claim a legal right to do so. The judges who sentence them to time served seem to agree.

And what will The State's attitude be when people who are not leftwing assert the leftwing privilege of disruption?

We'll see.
