Posted on 08/12/2005 1:33:10 PM PDT by basilEdited on 08/12/2005 1:39:09 PM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]
Please congregate at the Crawford Civic Center, which is located in the 1000 block of East 4th Street.
Start time remains 12 Noon.
The new site is very near the first site we were assigned, so people going there by mistake should be able to see us and come on over.
Sorry about the last minute changes.
Hmmm--didn't do that so well--just imagine the red! LOL!
Most people try this at least once. Sorry buddy, HTML don't work on titles. Not sure why, probably because trools would come in and post the titles really big and screw things up
Isn't it amazing that we have gotten to this point in our society, that we are no holding "Pro-Troops" rallys vs the "Anti-Troops" Sheehan crowd? Simply amazing what it's come to.
Looks red to me.
Change on Crawford location
Good luck. Hope you get a little camera time to off set the media whore. (that is what she is. She is our later day version of Jane Fonda. The only thing she hasnt done is hug a terrorist)
Thanks for letting us know....
Has anyone contacted the media outlets to let them know??
God bless you for doing this!
Good luck and God Bless, basil. We will be with you in spirit. (Take lots of water and bug spray)
Good Luck and God bless our Troops!
Those who serve deserve this.
See you there.
The "media" would not want to show any "propaganda" now would they?
Besides they shrink when they see an American flag.
No need to contact them..they read FR! How do I know, google and Yahoo just scrubbed the photo of W and the Scheehan lady! As soon as they realised we were fishing for some photos of that meeting they scrubbed the pix!! Oh they read FR!
what do you mean 'scrubbed'? Did they take it away?
Yes, I've sent out press releases.
They're still there if you google images with
Cindy President Janey
We got a screen cap of that, didnt we? I did notice that the enlarged pictures were missing.
No problem-O on the change. Is this an upgrade? :o)
Thanks for the notice.
A preview from Powerline:
Live From Crawford, Texas
Power Line reader Gene Allen has been in Crawford, Texas, and sends this report on the ongoing media circus there:
I just returned from Crawford where I met some people from Israel yesterday as they fueled their motor home. They were there to drive out to the ranch as a tribute to President Bush and as an expression of gratitude for his support of Israel. Ill be back down there Tuesday-Thursday and when I return I can e-mail some photos if you wish. This town of 800 is crawling with visitors who can be divided into four general categoriestwo good, two bad.
1) People on a pilgrimage to see President Bushs ranch and downtown Crawford;
2) Police, more specifically, Secret Service, U.S. Marshals, Texas Rangers and County Sheriffs Deputies;
3) Protestors; and
4) Press covering the protestors only.
The good guys fill with gas and diesel and dine on cheeseburgers at the Coffee Station where the walls are adorned with enlarged snapshots of President Bush working the crowd and dining on a Coffee Station burger. That wont happen this year, and perhaps never again because of the bad guys.
The bad guys hang at the Crawford Peace House, a dump of a house that looks like Hippie Central with dozens of cars, vans, SUVs and campers parked on the grass. Add portable toilets for ambience and you get the picture. This is the staging center for protests at the ranch nine miles up Prairie Chapel Road.

Is that what we call trolls stuck in stuned beebers? ;-)
Thanks for posting- I would like to read more about this, I'll check it out.
unnngh. It's what we call someone who forgot to use spell check
The change mentioned in the post here.
Ignore my post to you. My evil twin should have read the heading before posting.
No problem :-).
Thanks to all who are making the effort to get out and support our troops and President Bush in Crawford tomorrow. I hope that there is a live thread so the rest of us across the country can share your experience there and call our media sources close to home to recommend that they cover the rally as much as they have covered Ms. Sheehan.
Good Luck, FReep On!
" The only thing she hasnt done is hug a terrorist "
Actually, she's done worse. One of her support groups is UPJ.
Since the whole bunch out there with Cindy are anti Israel, pro Palestinian- it may be short for United Pissing on Jews. I'm not sure.
The group (UPJ ) protested at the Republican National Convention and were polled by some media org.
Yesterday, Ira Stoll reported on this in the NY Sun.
When polled, a majority of UPJ agreed with this statement :
" Iraqi attacks on American troops occupying Iraq are legitimate resistance."
" ..., Ms. Sheehan's "coalition" includes a lot of people who think the persons who killed her son were justified."
Saddam Cindy doesn't give one shiite about the soldiers in Iraq. In fact, it appears that her goal may be to get more soldiers killed , so more mothers will feel the same pain.
Please take lots of digital pictures if you can
Wish I could come, and Good Luck
Ping for location change
Judging from the legend on the mapblast link I provided, it looks like we got moved approximately one mile to the East.
Taxman Bravo Zulu! Basil for organizing this rally to support our troops! Wish I could be with you in person, but know that I'll be with you in spirit!
The policeman told me that the two sites are very close together. Guess we'll see when we get there.
On my mappoint it looks like it's just in the next block.. probably just east of the railroad tracks...
Wish I could post it - but those maps don't copy..
I hope DU gets this and posts it on one of their anti-semetic threads, which sprout as quickly there as the numbers change at McDonalds when Mikey Moore eats lunch.
Bumping for you inspiring FReepers!
Excellent, thanks for your efforts.
