Lemme share this episode from today. I was holding a sign I brought back fromthe "Kerry LIED... While Good Men Died" rally in DC on Sept 12th. The sign said "Kerry LIED while WE died". A Kerry Kool-aider in his 70's walked past me as he was going home and muttered "If you died, how are you here"?.
I went off on him.
I yelled "There are 58,000 of us who DIDN'T come home! How in the hell can you support the man who is a TRAITOR and sold us all out?".
He snapped back "I'm a Korean War vet and I won a Bronze Star there."
I yelled in his face "You are STILL supporting a TRAITOR! How can you brag about being a veteran, and then support a traitor?".
He said "I don't want to hear that."
"Well you are GONNA HEAR it! You can't be proud to support a TRAITOR who sold us out. You should be ASHAMED to support that TRAITOR KERRY!".
His wife was trying to get him to hurry up. He turned to me and showed me posterboard with headstones drawn on and the number 1,000 written underneath. "Bush did this!", he said proudly, "1,000 dead and counting".
I yelled at him "You can't count: IT'S 3,000 DEAD CIVILIANS! OR HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN? Take your GREEDY GEEZER butt outta here and be ashamed of yourself for supporting a TRAITOR!".
I bet he thinks twice about making a smartass remark about Vietnam vets.
There are some videos at www.jacksonville.com, one has the guy with Kerry Lied about us sign.
I'm signing off for the night.
We need a Jacksonville ping list!
Excellent job! Y'all have some creative talants there. I really liked the flip and flop costumes. :)
Thanks for your support!
FReeper honor roll includes: Warrior Nurse, Dutchgirl, Taxman, OXENinFLA, and Chieftain.
One question? What was the woman in the news video screaming about the 70's?
(was figuring, she was still there, bad acid maybe?)
Maybe Warrior Nurse, Dutchgirl, or OXENinFLA knows about that.
Here's the FREEP KERRY after action report and photos!
Thanks Chief, great Freep!!!!
Hooyah! great FReeping
I wonder how much of that is simply for purposes of security, post 9-11.... (We didn't need tickets for the Dole rally in St. Louis 1996.)
98% of all the cars that passed by gave us honks, thumbs up, and yells of "GO BUSH!"
Whoa!!! You were great. Thanks for being there. You remind me of my late hubby.
LOL! That's good!
To Lurch: Xin loi, (Johnny Kerry m'boy), you got beaucoup nerve thinking you can waltz in and take the Football from a REAL Commander in Chief in January. Dinky dau, numba ten John Kerry.
Kudos to all of you -- great looking protesters, signs and Flip-Flops! It's also great to see a few faces in the crowd that I recognize -- Hi Taxman, Warrior Nurse -- and Chieftan, I didn't get to meet you at the DC Rally by the Vietnam Veterans Against Kerry, but I was about 10 feet away and recognized your shirt and sign as you were leaving that day. Thanks for the after-action report and photos.
