Skip to comments.LIVE Report From Crawford (3,000 folks now and STILL COMING!)
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.
The only disruption I saw was two guys that tried to walk through with a sign that said "Bush is a dictator" The sign went down fast and then the media surrounded the group. I couldn't see the rest.
Nope, no crowd shot of our side but they did show a pro-Bush lady who actually made a point, and they showed enough of what she said that she got to MAKE her point. CindyLoon's rant did her and her side absolutely no good at all! I'm glad they showed the whole thing so viewers could see how loony and incoherent she was. And until this afternoon there was absolutely no coverage at all on FOX, so I figure any is better than none.
Did you see the shot of the horses walking down the street in Crawford? They had slogans like "Go home Cindy" written on their butts. :-)
I just got back from the rally in Crawford, it was Outstanding!
Thanks to all who put this event together.
I have a bunch of pixs that I took at today's rally also. Where are you hosting yours so you can post them here?
Thanks for any help. - zlala
That was Shemane Nugent, Ted Nugent's wife. She is a sharp lady and can use tact whereas I wouldn't want to be one of cindy's leftist buddies when Ted was around. He can be very "direct and to the point". He is a very patriotic American.
***That was hilarious.***
GOP_Proud, I've tried and tried and tried to see that video clip of Bob Hope, but all I can get is computer language. Could you at least give me a clue as to what he says?
So true, so true....
I wish this sort of thing happened everyday. I love it when we confuse the h*ll out of them. Maybe then a few of the snewzies would start to think about it and realize how wrong they are about conservatives.
Hey, I can dream, can't I? LOL
Now, back to planting shrubs. I'm driving my husband crazy running in and out to keep tabs on this thread. Go Freepers!
I don't mind them covering the hurricane. People need to be notified well ahead of time. Hurricanes are a life and death matter But they cover a heck of a lot of other stuff that isn't even fluff, it's less important than that.
On a private account.
Valerie may have some good tips for setting up what you're looking for, but I don't think she's back yet.
I don't even think SHE knew what she was trying to say! Perhaps she'd like to go over to Iraq and view the "damage" to their country in person?
Top of the hour . . . let's see if FOX continues to cover this.
LOL, I don't think she knows what she's saying anyway. Her voice is just an echo inside her hollow head.
WOW .. Great Picture
"Rovegoggles?" Any news camera can do the same thing :)
You are obviously ready for a higher level, I'll tell
Fantastic Photos. Thanks.
Your Yahoo link worked fine.
Thanks for posting the pictures.
..like he wasn't prepared....
I wondered that too. Greg Kelly has seemed to be an ok guy...he did a good job of reporting during the war. But, today, he seemed like he'd lost his notes or distracted by someone speaking in his ear piece.
