I'm back. Praise the Lord.

I will write more -- much more -- on my experiences of this week. I saw something I never thought I'd ever see. Our side. In the streets. Angry. Protesting. Demanding. PUSHING BACK. To those Threepers who came, helped with the flags and the banner, "Not One More Inch," to those who carried it the whole day and who later participated in the Oath Keeper's ceremony at the Vietnam Memorial, words fail me. You were magnificent. I cannot thank you enough.

I had to drop out of the march. I knew my feet would be problematic and it got to where I just couldn't continue. I will be going to the doctor tomorrow morning. Pete also was called away by the support and admin stuff, necessary to switching hotels and frankly, helping my sorry crippled ass.

And as I knew you would, you rose to the occasion. You don't need no stinking leaders. You are your own leadership. That is why we will never be beaten. Never.

There were a lot of side meetings held in DC, some of them spectacularly productive. I can tip you off that there is much more to come in the ACORN scandal. Much more.

I can also tell you that I will have one of the most important pieces I have ever written posted in a few days, and I will need your help to distribute it when it comes out.

And for the Absolved fans, all of the chapters that have previously been posted will be reposted here, appearing as they will in the finished product. You will be able to go to just one site, this one, to tap into all of my accumulated writings, fact and fiction.

Like I say, I will have much more on this later. But I promised you that I would let you know I made it home safe, and I did.

Both Pete and I came home re-energized for the fight to come. How could we not?

For now, I have to clean out my email box and crash.

I know I speak for all of us when I say, Glad you are home safe. Thank Pete for watching over you for us.
I know foot problems all to well and hope for your speedy recovery.
You will be in my prayers.

I wish I could have been there with you. I can say that I am proud of America, that we decided to stand up and let them know that we are here and our numbers stretch as far as the eye can see!

It was a pleasure to meet you, and an honor to march with you, all of you.

I had to hit the silk early myself. When the six-year-old runs out of gas and starts to morph into Captain Cranky, the wise dad pays attention.

Come back up in April for the Second Amendment March.

Glad you're back in one piece, Mike.

Take two Lasix and call me in the AM... :)

Glad you're home Mike .... I was worried about you up there. Figured you would have a time of it on your feet.

Thought I was going to make it, but my traveling partner had a family problem come up and we could not come. Love the numbers that I am hearing. Sure wish I could have been there to "shake my fist in the tyrants face".

It was a pleasure to meet you and the fellow Three percenters (and OKs) that attended the rally. Merry band indeed! I would have liked to attend the evening activities, but I had to go back to VA before my curfew at 1700 (married - ;)). I'm glad I saw you on my way to the Metro Station (Peru). I hope you recover soon, and hope to see you guys again very soon.
