Is any of this open to the public? When do WE get to see President Bush?

The entrance to the shrine has just a narrow strip of road in front of it and it the whole block of the Shrine will no doubt be blocked off so that the nuts won't be able to get any where near President Bush.

I know a Rabbi that runs a rehab center who is meeting with Bush on Wednesday. Not sure of the details as we were just faxed today....it seems to be related to Bush's Faith Based initiative and funding.

Real smart of those liberals to protest religious leaders and those who have dedicated teir lives to helping others.

TED HAYES will be there by 5 pm.

I plan to arrive EARLY - to check in with the Secret Service.

They will probably want to keep us away from the main entrance, but I'm sure that we will find a good area to gather.
And, I have two GIANT banners - ten foot by three foot:
"Thank GOD it's W!"
and
"Bush WON; Get over it!"
Plus many signs:
"LUVYA DUBYA"
and
"Return of the King: BUSH 2004"
Not sure WHO gets inside, but it is probably another $2,000/plate fundraiser...
See you there! (OUTSIDE, for free.)

===

Wouldn't the Convention Center be a good place to see him?

Will try to get off work, but it's unlikely...I'm starting a new full-time shift. If the event time is early, let me know ASAP.

Go for it!
I chose the Shrine Auditorium venue because:
- it is near the time when many people get off work,
- it is during "drive time" on talk radio,
- it is close to the six o'clock news,
but MOST of all because
- that's when the BAD GUYS are planning to protest him.
Also greeting him at the Convention Center is a GREAT idea!

11th Regional White House Conference on Faith-Based and Community Initiatives
From www.ojp.usdoj.gov/fbci/:

IMPORTANT CALENDAR ITEM:
White House Conference on Faith-Based and Community Initiatives

Wednesday, March 3, 2004
8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Los Angeles Convention Center
1201 South Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90015

On Wednesday, March 3, the White House and the Departments of Justice, Agriculture, Labor, Health & Human Services, Housing & Urban Development, and Education and the Agency for International Development will host a conference in Los Angeles, to help faith-based and community organizations learn more about President Bush's Faith-Based and Community Initiative. The Federal government is working to make sure that faith-based and community groups can compete on an equal footing for Federal dollars, receive greater private support, and face fewer bureaucratic barriers.

The Conference is free, but pre-registration is required. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Visit www.fbci.gov to register online. We strongly encourage you to register online. If you are unable to register online, print the registration form attached to this email. Complete the form and fax it to 703-299-4589 or 703-706-0476. If you are not able to view this file, please call 202-456-6718 to have a form faxed to you. Please register by Wednesday, February 25. If you are unable to attend the conference, please cancel your registration via email, to fbci@dtihq.gov, or via fax, to the numbers listed above, so we may accommodate as many people as possible.

The Conference is part of a series of regional Conferences that are being held around the country. These Conferences will equip participants with information about Federal programs that are suited to their needs, the Federal funding process, and the legal requirements that may apply to recipients of Federal funds. It will also give them practical information on the grant-writing process and successful practices from other organizations, as well as an opportunity to network with government officials.

The conference will offer several different tracks of workshops. When you pre-register, please indicate your preference for which workshop you would like to attend. Since workshops fill up, please mark a first and second choice.

For more information, please call 202-456-6718, send an email to fbci@dtihq.com, or visit www.fbci.gov.

We very much hope you will be able to join us in Los Angeles, CA.

President Bush to visit Bakersfield Thursday

By VIC POLLARD, Californian Sacramento Bureau Chief
e-mail: vpollard@bakersfield.com


Posted: Monday March 1st, 2004, 1:58 PM
Last Updated: Monday March 1st, 2004, 1:58 PM

President George W. Bush, increasing his visibility as criticism from his Democratic opponents increases, will visit Bakersfield Thursday to tout the economic acccomplishments of his administration.

He is scheduled to host a "conversation on the economy" at 9:35 a.m. at Rain for Rent on State Road, according to the White House press office. It is unclear if the event will be open to the public.

The Bakersfield visit is one of three stops the president will make on a swing through California two days after the Super Tuesday primaries that are expected to decide his Democratic opponent for the November general election.

Bush will make similar appearances in Los Angeles earlier in the day and in Santa Clara later, according to the press office.

Just some information...I was scheduled to be a volunteer for the Shrine Auditorium event and it is a fundraiser. We were asked to be there at 2:00 to get our instructions and the doors open for the attendees at 4:00. If you're gonna be outside the event, suggest waiting until around 4:00 when the guests start arriving and then staying through "W's" appearance. I have a feeling AAARNOLD will be there "big time" especially after the success tonight. My friend is sick so I will not go but do have a wonderful time letting "W" know we're behind him 100%. He's really got a full plate right now and just doesn't need all of the HATE stuff from the D's. SAD. God Bless America. Yea on the Propositions!

I got a last minute call to volunteer at the conference center event - was working and on my feet 11:30 to 4, sorry I couldn't do the Shrine Freep too! But I might have gotten 2 other people there in my place. I gave them your contact info RonDog, hope that's OK.

Thank you, Jessanine!
Your friend Joe was one of few FR-related folks to be there.
Fortunately, we had a little help from some OTHER friends:

I just got back from an AMAZING rally to support President Bush at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles, right across the street from the University of Southern California.

Wow.
I thought that **I** was intense.
It is a good thing that these Iranian-American patriots are on OUR side. :o)
