Are you up for this?
I'm not even sure what "this" is, I'm afraid.
Coleus, are there any plans for people to meet somewhere more specific? Or are folks just showing up? I'll check back in during the day Monday when I ain't so sleepy.
Looking for the organized crime vote...
Go get 'em! Freep him like a rented mule!
If anyone wants to be on the FREEPNORAD KerryTrack Freep Flipper ping list, please let me know here or by Freepmail.
By any chance to you have Bonjovi's address left over somewhere from 2000? I had it and now I cant find it....
Thanks for the ping!
Ought to do wonders for the traffic!
Yea, I remember when Gore came and they had to close the turnpike! It's best to stay home if you live in the area, and look, it's just in time to really mess up rush hour traffic.
Id try and help but I have a job.
TOO LATE!!! How can we hear about these things ahead of time?
It's a campaign, things spring up.
I read about it in the paper on Sunday night and posted it immediately. The article wasn't even about Kerry, it was about Bush, and in the last few paragraphs it mentioned Kerry coming to NJ. Had I not read the entire article there would have been no post at all. There is still time to freep him on Tuesday morning right on the boardwalk in Atlantic City for those who live in Phily and South Jersey. Some can take a bus down there, I know NJ Transit has routes to AC.
I think all freepers from around the country should click on the Kerry Website DAILY for updates AND get on his e-mail list. Most of the information I posted came right from Kerry's Homepage. It may also help to log on to the State Democrat Party webpages and get on their e mail lists too.
Thanks. I'm bookmarking this for your links.
The book that Kerry
wishes would just go away.
|HanoiJohnKerry.com is a blog with a primary purpose. That purpose is to counter the preposterous claims of Sen. John Forbes Kerry (D-MA) that he has any legitimate claim to any sort of "brotherhood" among combat veterans of the War in Vietnam.
While it is generally supposed that his service as a Naval officer on a "Swift Boat" in that theater was adequate and honorable, there is much to question regarding his readiness to allow the accolade "war hero" to be applied to him.
Likewise, it is not at all uncommon for more senior Naval officers to raise an eyebrow at the swiftness and relative comfort by which Lt. JG Kerry attained those medals, and who is available to vouch for the efficacy of his being awarded them (since, as boat commander, it would be his own task to make recommendation for awards for all personnel, including himself, on the Swift Boat).
But most egregious was his conduct, words and associations upon his early-out (from SEA) return to the USA and discharge from the US Navy. His leadership role with the radical pro-Communist (inaccurate to deem this group "anti-war") group called "Vietnam Veterans Against the [Vietnam] War" (hereafter VVAW).
It was while climbing the social and political ladder of the pro-Soviet Left as a principle of VVAW that John Kerry found his political soul-mate in Hanoi Jane Fonda. Granted, these politically formative years for Kerry were prior to the more outlandish acts of Fonda that earned her that name, but it is easily documentable that Fonda did not under go any radical transformation in belief or character from the time she and Kerry were working the same side of the street to the time she traveled to Hanoi, NVN and entered US history as the most overt traitor to ever NOT be charged, tried and executed.
John Kerry went to his own overt extremes to demonstrate that, politically, socially and in lowness of character, there wasn't a nickel's worth of difference between he and Fonda. Thus, in the spirit of fairness and accuracy, we are reasonably certain that he will be agreeably flattered by calling him Hanoi John Kerry.
Here, testifying before the Fulbright Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is where John Kerry, spokesman for Vietnam Veterans Against the War, cemented his position and moniker as "Hanoi John" Kerry. This was the occasion where US troops still in the field in Vietnam learned from one of their FORMER brothers-in-arms that they were heinous murderers and war criminals. HJK would now like to call on them for support in his bid to be the new Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces. Perhaps the most preposterous hypocrisy of all.
Here are those links I just mentioned to you. Reply 17.
Nice ego post. When are you finally gonna show up someplace and do something.
Do you know if anyone went to freep Kerry at any of the 3 locations?

Kerry Speaks In Atlantic City
Jun 15, 2004 4:41 pm US/Eastern
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (AP) Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry on Tuesday accused President Bush of ignoring American values in his economic policies by giving tax cuts to the wealthy and running up the deficit on the backs of workers and the needy.
"All these politicians running around talking about values, I just think it's wrong," Kerry told the New Jersey State AFL-CIO. "For middle-class Americans to be saddled with endless debt and deficits while the most fortunate among us walk away with billions in tax cuts. Where does that value come from? As president, I'm going to fight to put America's tax code in line with our moral code."
Kerry also criticized the Bush administration for preparing to cut budgets for education, domestic security, veterans and other programs after the election, citing White House planning documents.
"If you think that is compassionate conservatism, then Dick Cheney is Mr. Rogers," he said at the start of a two-week focus on economic problems facing middle-class Americans.
"This reckless deficit will not be put on the backs of veterans, cops and firefighters," Kerry said to applause from the union, which is backing his campaign. "It will not be put on the backs of women and children in need. The price of these deficits will not be paid for by the poor. Let me tell you my fundamental value -- you don't make America strong by attacking the weak. And we are going to make that clear on November second of this year."
Bush's re-election campaign said the economy is growing and that Kerry chooses to focus on the negative in a "pessimism and misery tour." Bush is running a television ad that makes the same point and says of Kerry, "Pessimism never created a job."
"President Bush's tax cuts put more money into the pockets of America's middle-class families," Bush spokesman Steve Schmidt said. "John Kerry has a long history of voting to raise taxes on middle-income voters."
Although unemployment has risen overall during the last three years of Bush's presidency, 1.2 million jobs have been created so far this year. But Kerry still says Bush has not done enough to help fill the average American's pocketbook.
"More than a million Americans who were working three years ago have lost their jobs and the new jobs that are finally being created pay an average of $9,000 less a year," Kerry said.
"But as wages are going down -- ha-ha, guess what -- your costs, health care costs are going up 50 percent, tuitions are going up 35 percent, your bills are going up, gasoline prices are going up. I'm running for president because I want an economy that strengthens and expands the middle class, not one that squeezes it," he said.
Kerry's speech came on the second day of a New Jersey campaign swing. On Monday night, Kerry raised $1 million during a fund-raiser attended by more than 300 people at musician Jon Bon Jovi's Monmouth County home.
while the most fortunate among us walk away with billions in tax cuts.>>
Was he talking about himself and his Billionaire wife, Mrs. Heinz?
