The Carpetbagger Report brings our attention to the upcoming "Freedom Walk" down public streets past public monuments to hear a Clint Black conert in a public park. No one may participate who hasn't given the Dept of Defense their name, address, phone number and email address.
Perhaps, you're thinking, there are security concerns. Maybe, but that's not a good reason to "screen" people who want to participate in this walk. DC hosts elaborate 4th of July festivities, with thousands of people going to the exact same places this walk will go, but no one is screened or forced to register. For that matter, people can watch a presidential inauguration and/or inaugural parade in DC just by showing up.I think we all know the answer to this question.
But before commemorating 9/11 and walking to a Clint Black concert, the Pentagon has a few questions for you.
I don't live in DC anymore, but it'd be fascinating to be on hand to see who gets "screened out" before the event. What if, by chance, someone shows up with a "No Blood for Oil" bumper sticker? Or worse, t-shirt?
Exactly how "free" will our "freedom walk" be?
