The White House Press Corps was still with the president.

Damn them! Don't they know who I am!

Did anyone hear the Code Pink person on Hananity today? She had the smarmy voice of a death and dying counselor, saccharine with sweet reasonableness, false compassion and superiority. Hannity wasn't buying it and didn't waste time before exposing her for what she is. She's supposed to be on his TV show tonight; wonder if she'll make it...

I was lurking here for about a year before I found out about this weekly Freep.

Let me say, Fraxinus, that we are very happy that you did find out about it. IIRC, you've been coming out every week since.

Thank you for giving up your Friday nights for "a just and noble cause."

:-)

Thanks for the information:

Within months, his campaign came to Vacaville to visit Cindy Sheehan. She knew of his support of Al Sadr. The family became mezmorized with Kerry and his campaign embraced her, tying her into other organizations to support his campaign. They paid her expenses to travel across the United States supporting him.

When asked why she would support the man who supported the terrorists who were killing soldiers and had killed her son, there was no response. She seemed conflicted.

Behind all of this, is John Kerry and his group of radicals, once more, trying to demoralize our troops and jeopardizing our children.

If that was the same "Lynn" person (didn't catch her last name) who was on the show tonight, she's a lying SOS. She said she's been to the Walter Reed rallies almost every weekend. I've been going for a couple of months, and I've NEVER seen her.

Isn't all the outrage here just dandy? Think we'll see any of it on Friday?

Don't know, but I'll bet we see some on Saturday, halfway accross the country.

Are you saying that Walter Reed is allowing this outside its gates, allowing this to happen to its patients?

It's a public sidewalk. The first amendment still applies. Unless one could make the case (to a DC jury??) that what they are doing constitutes giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States (it does of course), there's not much the government can do.

That's where we FReepers come in. Anyone within a couple of hours of DC ought to be there. Tomorrow and every other Friday until the Code Pinkos et. al. give up and go home.

can we hurt them now???

Not yet. DC laws are a lot different, but in Texas, one can use force, even deadly force to protect others (or yourself) from serious injury or death. One can use less than lethal force to protect property of others or yours. Under many circumstances, one can use deadly force to protect property as well.

If any of them lays a hand on one of our Troops, or veterans, or anyone else, then we can hurt them. Although in most cases the troop or veteran will take care of the problem themselvs. That's as it should be.

How can they earn anything more than laughter and disdain from "normal people" just passing them by on the street. Really, what a bunch of saps if they think this is winning people over.

You would think so. Heck I would think so, if I hadn't seen it all happen before. Starting around 1970. You'll recall that we finished Second in the Southeast Asian War Games, despite winning every event.

Then it only cost someone else's country. This time the other side came here to kill us, and is continuing to try to do so. Losing this one is not going to make them stop. It will only encourage them to do more than they did before we took the fight to them.

Wish I could be there, too. I'm about as far from DC as you can get and still be on the North American Conttinent.

drove around and ran over the crosses,

Which were illegally place in the public right of way. In this case the so called "bar ditch", which isn't really a ditch in the way most folks think of it, it's a just a graded slope on the edge of the road, often not all that steep or deep. It's not graded as often as the road proper, if the road proper is gravel, rock or caliche. (look it up :) ) This road is none of those, but rather a "blacktop" road.

Any soldier that responded, would be prosecuted under the UCMJ.

Responded to words, yes indeed. Responded to actions, such as shoves, punches, etc. No. Even in the former case, if they aren't in uniform, and are off-duty, and off base/post/station, it become a town matter, with punishment under UCMJ only coming after the civilian system is done with them. No civilian conviction, no military action.

Indeed. I'm glad to see the caravan has been receiving media attention and being greeted by decent crowds.

This is a grass roots thing. Invite all of your contacts. Meet up with other troop supporters in your community. Post notices around your town. Contact your local Radio stations and ask for a public service announcement. Contact your local paper and ask for them to do a human interest story. Perhaps your newspaper might even provide a photographer to take the group photo. Just get your town to turn out.

thankxlot. i put up with a lot from these friggin RATS, but... they are now officially over the line in my book.

women can get a divorce because of "Mental Cruelty / Verbal Abuse" and if this doesn't come under that heading i don't know what does. to me, MilHosps should be cocoons from the outside world until the guys can come face to face with their physical problems first before they have to deal with psychopathic treasonous scum like these POS's are. and to have them outside where they can be seen/heard is absolutely criminal!!! /rant

You're probably right, but at least it puts the matter into the "Commander's discretion" category. Or even the "First Shirt's". If nothing else, if you do something stupid, your senior NCO is going to tell you about it, and none to gently most likely.

Yeah, we're in agreement there. But I have seen more than one occasion where a Marine escaped civilian prosecution, only to have to answer via UCMJ.

Yes, on the 'distaff' side. Army wife, Army mom, spent my most significant time as an educator in the Army Continuing Education System (still at it).

Thanks very much for the info. I'm just replying now because I've been gone. I didn't want you to think that your efforts are unappreciated.

Also a chance to bump the thread.

:)
