I honestly don't think that they let that permit lapse on purpose. I think that it was a large oversight on their part. Then to add insult to the injury of having lost it to a Freeper is just the kiss of death. I think that they are pissed beyond words because they lost their permit and their rank and file numbers are falling.
Just like Rush says a Lib out of control is really funny to watch. This is givng many of us on FR incredible pleasure to have a ringside seat on the Code pinkos meltdown.
We had a taste of this when we had one of our rallies against Peace Fresno. A church decided to joined us from another little town. I don't mean a few memembers, I am talking the whole church, moms, dads, kids, grandma, grandpa, teens. We outnumbered Peace Fresno Peace by about 20 to 1. That evening was magical. The church brought their risers and their chorus sang God Bless America, and many other songs. They also set up a huge video screen with tapes of Bush speaking about the war on terror.
It took 2 days for my ear to stop hearing honking. Peace Frenso was shaking in their boots, they were literally terrified. After they left we took over all four corners. I don't think that we left until 8:30 that night.
That picture would make a great sign for the next FReep.
They didn't lose it for stealing our sign off the fence on "their" corner, or for lying to the police when he was asking where the sign was. Lying during the investigation of a crime is also a crime. Of course if you talk to any Code Pinkos, since we got the sign back, no crime really took place!
Try to imagine a world where Code pink and other anti war groups were not faced with counter protests supporting the troops.
A world where only their voices reached the ears of our wounded, where those opinions were the only ones they heard.
Imagine the depression that would set in when they questioned their honor and country, and imagine the depths of despair Code Pink could drive them to...
It isn't hard to do, because it has happened before, and a whole generation of vets suffered because of it.
Your story is compelling, and I appreciate it. I just feel a need to challenge fellow conservatives to think twice about devoting themselves to activity that, according to the conservatism of Richard Weaver, Edmund Burke, Russell Kirk, Ronald Reagan, and the like, may be detrimental to the cause and may even, in the long run, warp the person who engages in such behavior.
You say you're making a difference to the soldiers and I believe that. I would never doubt that for a moment. You say aggravating the Pinkos is just an added bonus . . . great! If that were your primary aim, and you were there week after week, trying to outlast a handful of wackos with no life, I'd be worried about you. That's all I'm saying.
I don't really enjoy coming on your thread and playing the gadfly. I just think someone has to keep our movement honest and true to its principles, and, as far as I'm concerned, conservatives ought to avoid 60s-leftist agitator street tactics just as much as they should avoid bullying tactics or distorting the truth to make a point, or lying in the cause of Truth, etc.
If that's not what you guys are about, great. If you find yourself getting addicted to FReeping and start wetting yourself every time you get a 10-second sound bite on C-SPAN or a "shout out" on a blog . . . reexamine your motivation.
(FWIW, I was reacting more to the "FREEPERS WIN!!" thread than to this one.)
WE look forward to it!
We'll try to bring some warm, Floriduh weather with us, but the forecast is mid-20s.
We'll bring some warm FRiendship and a hug or two (and our long johns!). Will that suffice?
The only people whose opinions I care about are our men & women at WR. The rest of your post reads like a load of bubblegum pop psych.
Maybe you could arrange for several people with cameras to arrive at specific intervals, maybe just in time to get pictures of them harassing the previously-arriving photographer.
I can assure you that I actively support the troops,
in person, the last 224 weeks straight.
And will do it again this week, week # 225
You see I'm one of those vets who had no one supporting them.
And anyone that is willing to let that happen really doesn't have any conservative values to begin with.
...even in pink.
Code Pink should be under indictment.
I don't let left wingers get by with much at all in my university. I work tirelessly to win the hearts and minds of our students, and I challenge the cheeseball tactics of the lefties.
BUT, you're right, I don't believe in fighting dirty. I don't want to soil myself. True conservatives don't fight dirty. They fight clean, they fight smart, and they kick ass. But fighting dirty warps the soul of the one who uses those means. It makes them mean spirited, vindictive, and barbaric. Fighting fire with fire is a quick road to radicalism. Conservatives are not radicals.

Pardon me, 4th photo from the top.
"I don't let left wingers get by with much at all in my university. I work tirelessly to win the hearts and minds of our students, and I challenge the cheeseball tactics of the lefties."
I lead by setting an example and I don't even get paid.
You don't fight at all, except to put down those here that actually challenge the left in front of Walter Reed.
I'm sure that is very inspiring to your students.
"What did you do last night, teach?
"Well I told a bunch of Freepers they weren't real conservatives because they were actually Protesting Anti war protestors outside of Walter Reed Army Hospital."
"They were protesting Anti war protestors?"
~~student thinks to self(how cool!)~~
"yes they were but I told them how real conservatives don't get their hands dirty stooping to the level of the liberals."
~~student thinks to self (this old guy is proof positive that those that can't teach)~~
Yeah very inspiring.
This makes zero sense to me. Aren't they out there to be seen? Isn't that the whole point? You would think that they want their pictures to be taken no matter who was taking them. Pinko protestors are weird.
