I have so many stories and pictures it's hard to decide what to include. I know ajolympian2004 will have a lot to add tomorrow.

What I want to leave with those of you reading this is this...this was very last minute, no advanced planning at all and it was wonderful. It means so much to these military families to know that they have our prayers and support. Please try to make the effort to give up some of your time, to show our troops and their families how much we appreciate what they are doing for us.

Beautiful pictures. That al Qaeda bus looks like a rust bucket, can't wait for the wheels to fall off.

But... wasn't she in Washington DC? I just posted some photos of Cindy with her 29 "friends"... I'm so puzzled!

Well, I can't say if they're all her friends, maybe they are blood relatives...

Don't think so. I think her blood relatives have disassociated themselves from her completely.

Come to think of it, it wouldn't be that difficult for her to find 29 "friends" in Washington. There are plenty of "America hating, race baiting, anti-military, hostile, hysterical communists" there. We can start with the Senators...Kennedy, Kerry...

is that a flag on their bus or on a pole outside the place? If theirs I wonder what it was.

We were driving by when I took the picture and I didn't notice the flag until I uploaded the pictures onto the computer. I think it was on their bus, but I don't recognize what it is.
Taliban?

I'd say it's one of them there powder-puff blue UN-flags.

They're showing obeisance to corruption and a rejection of sovereignty. I consider it disgusting, but let 'em keep talking and "winning over" some of my waveringly-Democrat acquaintances.

The UN, of course. That makes perfect sense. They did everything they could to keep Saddam in power, and so has...what's her name again? Oh, never mind. I am much more interested in what Deborah Johns has to say.

What's with the famous evil, plotting-mastermind frog? I don't think this FReep helped Cindy the Witch at all!

Even though some FReeps of the Witch tour have been canceled to avoid giving her attention, I think that a good rally like the one here, giving attention to the other bus, is very helpful!

Guess we're destined for disagreement, which is a shame. :-( I'll pretend you didn't post the sarcastic frog pic, and just go with the words...Well done, Jan and FRiends! Great pictures and a beautiful day for a great cause and Beautiful People!

There is no disagreement, only misunderstanding: the Excellent Green Froggie is a very GOOD sign and awarded for EXCELLENT achievement within our PING group.

Check out previous posts and you will see....I would NEVER disrespect or be sarcastic towards Jan!

Okay...Good to hear that! :-)

Seems rather odd to use the evil-Mr. Burns-frog pic for an honest excellent achievement, though... I don't see Jan as much like Mr. Burns!!!

Then again, I don't know...this one might be even worse... ;-)

In any case, WAY TO GO, JAN & CO!!!

Now is the time for all good men and women
to come to the aid of our country
and show support for our service men and women.




Let's keep this, and every Support the Troops,
thread bumped from now until Monday.

The morale and well being of our troops is at stake.

The only other threads,
of any REAL importance,
over the weekend,
are the Hurricane threads
in the Gulf coast states.

And the importance of the troops
is evident by the military AND fire, police, EMT's etc
being called upon, again, to save Americans.

The politicians and judges are safe,
this weekend,
and every weekend,
because the military protect our Freedom 24/7 365
AND fire, police, EMT's etc are on call 24/7 365




You do not have to be in DC to show support for the Troops.

Visit your local military base today and at least once a week.

Or a military or veteran hospital.

If you can't do that then send an e-mail or package
to our troops for morale support.

Proud Patriots -
Sending care packages,
e-mails, and snail mail
to US Military worldwide.

http://www.proudpatriots.org

We need coast to coast support for the troops, now, more than ever.

Thank you Former Dodger, but I'll pass "our" frog to Deborah Johns and Gold Star Dad Joe Williams.They are so inspirational.

The media enjoys reporting the vile and hate coming from the hate America crowd. It is sickening and the pleasure they derive from reporting the negative makes me sick!Talk about aiding and abetting the enemy.How do these people look at themselves in the mirror? I guess that's it....they DON'T!

To hear these military parents speak with pride about their children who are serving and the love they have for this GREAT Country, makes me so proud to be an American, and made me so glad that I was there yesterday to show them that yes, we do support our troops AND their mission!

OK, Gondring, NO MORE frog pictures!

If you take a look at the picture Former Dodger posted, you may "see" that "our" frog is clapping his...Hmmm...I guess those are legs...hands...? You get the idea. That is the "excellent" post award for our ping group. I don't even know who Mr. Burns is, but I know FD was just telling me, "Great Job"

I may be an evil conservative...but that's for a different thread. Then there's my fight against Islam, but we won't go there, either, right? I know one thing we DO agree on is the support of the troops!

Oh, did I mention the Constitution?...

OK, OK, I give up! I can't win with you guys!

I was saying no more frog pictures from Gondring, since for some reason he was equating them with evil, and as an evil conservative, I want something a lot more threatening than a frog! ;o)

I was just trying to explain to Gondring that the hand clapping frog from Former Dodger was an award, not an insult.

You're right though...way too outrageous a rule. I will now use my prerogative as a woman and change my mind.

I had a great time! I was so impressed with the military moms there at the rally. It's such a shame that the media only reports one side of the story. The coverage that the foulmouthed, disgusting Ms Sheehan has received, versus the mothers that have the other point of view is unconscionable.
I guess we should be use to it by now, I just don't understand why the MSM HATES this Country so much!

MORE PICTURES

Are you saying you want MORE pictures? Be careful what you ask for. LOL

Yes, Tonk, thank you so much for saying that and for all you do!
Some say we are just bringing more attention to the protesters by standing up to them. That is the furthest thing from the TRUTH. It is that thinking that has given such a loud voice to the very vocal MINORITY. The majority has been complacent and silent for far too long.

We mistakenly think because we are a majority, or because our Country is the most powerful, that our Freedoms can't be taken away from us. It is happening right before our very eyes...look what the ACLU has accomplished just in the past few years.

It's time to wake up and fight back.It's time to hold the MSM and the liberals accountable for their blatant lies and misrepresentation.

Sorry for the rant...

And check out the colors of their bus... We all know they are yellow ("Run away! Surrender to the terrorists now!")

But the telling thing is how their green is showing through on the front...

I wonder how long before we can see their commie pinko through that!

"America hating, race baiting, anti-military, hostile, hysterical communists"

Oops...I put your words in "quotes" in the post, but I forgot to put your name as the writer (which I did do in the other thread when I quoted you). So sorry...I'm glad we're FRiends and you won't hold it against me. ;o) These words are so descriptive and on target to describe the enemy from within, why mess with perfection?

Thanks again for pinging me to this event. It was so refreshing to hear Deborah Johns and Gold Star Dad Joe Williams speak. They were a breath of fresh air and the military moms I met were very thankful (just like those at Walter Reed) that we were there to support the troops.

We were very fortunate that we didn't have any of the anti Freedom crowd there. There were a few that looked like they may NOT be supporters, but they never said a word. I'm hoping to get to go counter the Freedom haters in Denver on Saturday.

Are you ready for the big weekend in DC? Oh, how I wish I could be there!

I think the banner the military moms were holding is going to be sent to one of their sons in Iraq. The Move America Forward banner will be displayed at the rally in DC this weekend and then sent to the troops.

I had noticed the credit you gave prior, which is not necessary.

I saw the photo of you with Deborah Johns and Joe Williams as I was stationed at command central with Kristinn and tgslTakoma. We all were happy for you!!!

We still have much to do tomorrow before the FReep. Excitement and exhaustion are already creeping in on us all. Kristinn has a phone growing from his ear as he does 5 or 6 things at once. It is an amazing experience to be a part of it all! I must say G'night my FRiend. We have people arriving from Maine, Indiana and S Carolina tomorrow. Takoma is working on a new MOAB for Saturday and I am assigned to making a new last minute sign. LOL - wait til you see them! Wish you could be here with us, but hey, Colorado needs FReeped, too!

I know you all have a lot of work to do to get ready. You will all be in my prayers and I KNOW you will just love Deborah Johns. She is such a delight...no wonder Cindy Sheehan REFUSES to meet with her.

Darkness and light...there is NO comparison.

Be safe and thank you and all the others for standing up to the lies and misrepresentation of the media and for showing the Troops how much we love and support them! Looking forward to a full report soon!

The thought of shades of islumic green (as opposed to whacko green) showing thru on the dhimmibus crossed my mind. If they were flying a black flag (symbolic of jihad) instead of the blue flag of corruption and incompetence, I would have asked Jan to note their GPS coordinates... ;oP
