The Heart of Texas Chapter is planning a return to Crawford on Saturday, August 27. Our purpose this time will be to team up with the Move America Forward Caravan, which will originate in California, and pick up supporters from across the country. More can be found about Move America Forward here:MAF
We hope that with this much advance notice, more Freepers will be able to join us this time.
I have spent most of the day trying to contact someone at MAF, but they are so busy they haven't gotten back to me yet. However, it shouldn't be hard to notice a caravan of buses and cars in Crawford, so we will be able to jump in with them with no problem.
I spoke with Police Chief Donnie today, and he really seemed happy to hear that we were coming back. We won't need a permit this time, as we will be a tag on to the MAF permit.
Everyone with suggestions for signs, tactics, etc. please chime in. This will be another Support the Troops Rally--but MAF will probably get in a little Sheehan bashing--which is fine with me!
Damn, I wish I didn't live in Massachusetts or I'd sooo be there with the whole fam!
What happened to the city residents restricting all the vehicles on the street for miles?
Does everyone have to walk to the site or are the vehicles allowed all over still?
What conservative does wish they were in Massachusetts! :-)
Apparently, a local rancher has allowed Ms Sheehan and her ilk to move to his property, which has cleared the streets.
Bump and check your freepmail
God bless you Basil! As always, you are standing tall. I didn't know this was afoot last weekend or I might have been there. We'll see how this weekend shakes out. I would love to be with you again!
God Bless You HERO!

CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - Antiwar protester Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, is moving her camp closer to President George W. Bush's Texas ranch.
The piece of private property was offered by a relative of a man who had a fired shotgun in frustration over the protests, a source in the Sheehan camp said. The property owner is also a veteran.
"A neighbour of President Bush's has offered us his land," the source said. "It's got plenty of acreage for us, it's private land, we would have legal permission to be on it, it's much closer to the ranch -- in fact it's across the street from his (Bush's) church."
"We have taken him up on his offer," the source added.
Sheehan was not immediately available for comment.
Sheehan was expected to begin moving as early as Wednesday morning...
Bump and bookmark.
I wish you could have some signs showing the smiling Iraqi voters, or smiling Iraqi kids and soldiers like those we see almost every day at DefendAmerica.mil. Posters showing pictures of all the good work our soldiers have been doing in Iraq to help rebuild the country. Some captions: "We will stay the course," or "Casey supported Iraqi Freedom," or "Don't throw the Iraqis to the wolves."
Stuff like that to counter Axis Cindy's crazed rants about Iraq not being a noble cause.
Thanks for the nice sentiments, though--and if would be great if you could join us.
Great ideas--we'll sure incorporate some of them. Thanks!
He, he, smart farmer, he will get his land fertilized by demoCRAPs. Them useful idiots and their crap are good for something!
She already has this..and that's enough.
Move America Forward will be conducting the You Dont Speak for Me, Cindy caravan beginning next week. It will feature military family members who have loved ones serving in the war against terrorism in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The delegation will be led by Deborah Johns of Northern California Marine Moms.
She will lead the caravan to Crawford, Texas where she and Move America Forward Chairman, Melanie Morgan, will lead a WE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS & THEIR MISSION rally in Crawford on Saturday, August 27th, 2005.

We need a GREAT showing in Crawford on the 27th -- the treasonous left plans to bus in 'professional protesters' from all around the country!!
