LIVE Report From Crawford (3,000 folks now and STILL COMING!)
Basil in Crawford | 8-27-05 | TxBubba

Posted on 08/27/2005 10:02:40 AM PDT by TXBubba

Just talked to Basil on site in Crawford, Texas. Currently there are about 100 folks there helping to set up. They have not received word about the caravan arrival in Waco yet. JimRob is riding with the caravan. She thinks it might get to Crawford around 1:00 p.m.

Basil says the stage is set up, the sound system is excellent and they have hung the most beautiful banners overnighted by W04Man on the stage. A big thanks for the banners, they are much appreciated!

Someone arrived early and hung yellow ribbons everywhere.

They have an American flag that is about 50 feet by 40 feet. Children of military personnel serving in the Middle East have written notes to their parents on the stripes of this flag. A very touching thing to behold.

The HOT Chapter booth is being unloaded right now. The will sell buttons made by Angelwood to help off set costs.

Someone rented the Community Center for our use so there is access to AC. However, they also have 10 tents set up. And there is a Moonwalk for the kiddos.

To top everything else there is BBQ on the grill! Basil is the official taster and says it is great!

That is all the news I have at the moment. It is hard to get a cell phone connection to Crawford but when I hear more I will try to update everyone.

Greg is a good guy, ex marine. IT WAS HIS LAZY PRODUCERS FAULT I'M SURE.

I Agree the coverage was very much not what you would expect from Fox.

i'm still considering picketing Fox News in DC this week. If I do, I will not associate myself with FreeRepublic.com however, so as not to harm any good relations.

"Fox Breaking News Alert: Whoraldo will soon be swinging in the breeze from atop street sign in the Big Easy."

And water will be draining off his waxed mustache.

Funniest movie clip ever! Relevant to today too. Cover your keyboard before watching it.

A woman identified as the wife of Iraqi Freedom casualty Army CWO Stephen M Wells, of Egremont, Mass., carries the memorial cross that she picked up along the road near the original Camp Casey, in Crawford, Texas, Saturday, Aug. 27, 2005. Dozens of family members are upset that their family member's name is listed on the memorial crosses that were placed by anti-war protestors

God bless her and the Wells family. Such a shame they have to do that. Thanks, Cindy.

Both of his reports were utterly pathetic. I sent an email to Brit to complain.

Do you imagine Murdoch has anything to do with this?

Could be just the reporter.

This is why Cindy usually isn't allowed to speak. They show footage of her kneeling at a cross because that's about all she's good for in this propaganda war.

WOW!


Which US GOP Senators are went to Crawford?
They had the time off work and could well afford to buy airline tickets.

Interestingly enough many on the left are asking the same question.

You heard right, that's what she said. She also posted it on huffington's blog today. I don't think this lady went past the 8th grade.

I honestly believe we have the "hearts and minds" momentum... but we've got to break through the iron msm curtain.

What frustrates me is that if thousands of troops supporters won't do it, what will?

Thanks for being so nice about my newbie status. I try.

No takers. I can just hear the whining from the ditch *itch's bunch "I was standing there when this conservative, troop loving person came over and hit my fist with her nose."
