Just wanted to say that I have enjoyed your vids and street actions since 2007.(key word being action)

I'm not sure which is my favorite, but I definitely love the one where you guys put up the "patriotsquestion911" sign on I-40. I have that one, and the 9/11 report being tortured on my youtube channel. (burning the 9/11 report was sheer brilliance)

Much respect.

Sorry, can't sympathize with this one.

I'll second Bobby T's motion. It was 4409 that convinced me to spend $650 on a camera instead of a gun and start my video activism in my town, Nazi Cop Town, Quartzsite AZ. Here's my latest http://youtu.be/nNVG3SWX9A4

I have to tell you, I had serious 2nd thoughts about spending the money on the digital equalizer, but ALL of your videos convinced me to take the plunge and it's been one big fun video event after another!

Keep up the great work brother!
