WEEK 25 - Olney, MD, 6-17-06: Operation Infinite FReep, MOONBATS CAN'T TAKE THE HEAT
June 18,2006 | trooprally

Posted on 06/18/2006 11:33:35 AM PDT by trooprally

The moonbats could not take the heat today. And it was only in the mid-80s. The were packed up and GONE by 4:20 today. During the winter months, they had the sun keeping them a little warmer than our group who were in the shadows of some mature pine trees. Being hardened FReepers from the cold nights at Walter Reed, we stayed at our corner until the moonbats were long gone. But now that it is summer, the leaves on the trees on the grassy knoll immediately behind us keep us in the shade while the sun beats down on the moonbats and the sun is directly in their eyes.

The moonbats also couldn't take the heat from a passerby who parked at the southeast corner and crossed the road to their northeast corner. We could hear him giving the moonbats hell from our corner. We've never seen the guy before and he did not come over to our side. He was gone as quick as he came.

BELOW LEFT: Guy giving moonbats a piece of his mind. BELOW RIGHT: Guy in Barking Waveman's face.



BELOW LEFT: Looks like Idiotman (name given to him by our jogger) is trying to say something tour Guy. Barking Waveman looking the other way. Looks like he learned his lesson from the jogger incident and the police visit. BELOW RIGHT: One last word by our Guy to Barking Waveman who thought that by turning away from our Guy, he would be immune from his tongue lashing. Looks like Barking Waveman needs a haircut.



BELOW: Barking Waveman to Idiotman: "I guess we showed him, didn't we?"



The list of FReepers in attendance were regulars Lurker Bill, [Mrs] Trooprally ([Mrs] T), Cindy_True_Supporter (CTS) and myself.
Pics are by [Mrs] T.

BELOW LEFT: Ever faithful Lurker Bill with his photogenic smile. BELOW RIGHT: CTS



BELOW: Myself



Local Lou (BELOW LEFT) and Local John (BELOW RIGHT) also showed up, though a little late. Local John came in directly from his Saturday golf appointment. The "Freedom is Not Free" signs are a poplar sign with these two. At least these locals kept their word when they said they'll be here again this week.

Does anyone know the make and model of the red car behind Local John?



We also had a couple stop by. They started off the conversation by asking if we were giving away or selling the smaller flags. After a brief explanation of what we were doing and who the moonbats were by [Mrs] T and CTS, the wife said "They are a##holes". Later in the conversation, she said that she hoped they (moonbats) fry to a crisp. Again they said that they'll be with us next week.

We got our fair share of honks, waves and thumbs up, along with the cat calls. One passing police car gave two quick bleeps of his siren. One driver yelled "F### Bush" while a passerby was waiting to cross the street. Being 10 feet away she heard it. I duly apologized for their language. While I had her attention (she was a captive audience waiting for the light to change) I gave a quick explanation between our two groups. She politely smiled and left when the light turn green.


Now for the moonbats.

BELOW: Pic of their corner.



BELOW LEFT: Chief Grumpy can't even smile while another moonbat talks to her. BELOW RIGHT: Moonbat thinking "Well if you can't smile back, Ump back at you!" NOTE: To those who a don't know, to get full impact of pic, Right Click pic, click "View Image", then right Click pic again and click "Fit Image To Window".



BELOW: Another moonbat (left) that wants to claim the top honors of "Chief Grumpy". On the right, is that a wire sign holder supporting her sign? Jeez, can't they even hold their own signs? NOTE: Again, Perform Right Click steps above for full impact of pic.



BELOW: Peek-A-Boo with what looks like a Pro-Bush sign. Is she saying that President Bush has the strength to be twice the man in D.C. while visiting our troops in Iraq? And that he could single handily defeat the terrorist as in when he said "Bring 'em on"?



BELOW: Fashion statement for the day.



BELOW LEFT: Hey, eyes left, we have a looker. Love those red sandals. BELOW RIGHT: The "looker" with Barking Waveman.



All in all, it was a great day. Weather was warm with a slight breeze and we had a respectable number of Pro-Troop supporters. Concretebob's rebars held the banners without a problem.






REMEMBER
Next Saturday, same place, Georgia Avenue, MD Rte. 97 and MD Rte. 108 in Olney, MD
Same time, 3 PM to 4:30 PM


As always, the D.C. Chapter's rules for protesting will be in effect. Briefly, they are: No violence, no profanity, no racism, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.

Hey,
The queen of the moon-bats is in Portland, Oregon next Friday: Medea Benjamin herself is here to raise funds for the local anarchist, commie rag. I bet the event sells out and I bet it makes the local news. In a kind of masochistic way, I want to go but I can't stomach giving these clowns any money.
You guys rock and I am there with you in spirit every Friday evening.

Now pray tell, how did you know that so quick?

Oops - wrong FReep?, but Thanks because [Mrs] T and I are also regulars at the Friday Walter Reed FReep along with Lurker Bill and Cindy_True_Supporter.

RE Code Pink in Portland, you can still counter protest them on the streets, and take pictures of those entering the event. Just tell them that you work for the NSA. That ought to get a reaction out of them. Besides, Code Pink is getting tired of FR raining on their parade. They have to go to Portland to get away from us.

Great Threat Mr T as usual.
Cindy-true-Supporter was disapointed she felt that they were getting more honks than us. I kept etlling her it will get better long and behold it did.
Cindy got a grin from ear to ear. "I feel better now".
That was after the Guy yelled FU out the window at the moonbats.
Ping to ya.
Happy Fathers Day again.
[Mrs T]

Hey LF

Yea, report was easy and the moonbats were cooperative with their antics. Also, fewer pics to choose from this week. When [Mrs] T and iMacMan join up together, I have over a hundred pics to review and choose from.

Is that Sherwood High School where the protest was at? When I lived up that way Olney was the boonies!

Thanks [Mrs] T, but you are biased re the "greatness" of the thread. Couldn't do it without your great picture taking.

Does that bit of loving praise get me a refill on the frozen daiquiri!! or just a rum 'n coke?

Yea - that's it. Looks crazy. You must have retired now in Florida then if you remember Onley as the boonies. No, the Sherwood sign is on the intersection of Georgia Ave. and Rte. 108. It is a public service sign for the school.

Things have changed a lot since you've been here. Mr T's Sandwich shop is no longer - they are building a small strip shopping center there, Finneyfrocks is no longer since Mr. Finneyfrock died several years back, Sandy Spring Bank has their corporate HQs on the old Olney Inn site (it burned down) next to the Giant Food Store, we have 3 shopping centers and another mid-size one planned for Ashton, we also have a Starbucks, a TJ Max, a Home Goods Store and a Blockbuster. All the comforts of the inner city!!

Next time you're up this way, FReepmail us. We also have about a dozen restaurants here now.

I'll do that! I grew-up in Rockville and had to go to Sherwood for the occasional football or basketball game.

I do remember the Olney Inn though. Too bad it burned down.

No Demo-rat handicap cards on this thread, but you can use your Get Out of Jail FRee card. :-))

You just have to FReep Code Pink in Portland and write a Report. Looking Forward to it.

That's a challenge - the heat is on.

If you can't get any other FReepers, there have been several one person FReeps that I've read about. Join the crowd.

I'm a car buff, and the 2CV has a distinctive greenhouse (the glass and superstructure above the beltline of the car).

They are also notorious for being European road hazards that can't get out of their own way (grossly underpowered aircooled engine making between 9 and 33hp) and can't handle for crap. One was made (in)famous in the Bond picture, "For Your Eyes Only." (The one in that picture was actually multiple cars, as they would self-destruct with alarming regularity.)

I should also mention that it's the butt of many, many, many automotive jokes. It also is the symbol for the French automotive industry for the outside world, more or less.

Thanks to you both. About to call it a day. I've never been so stuffed in my life. [Mrs] T made a big flank steak and 3 types of fried shrimp. Then lemon meringue pie - 2 pieces!!

That's great!! I see our Guy came with a 'fist full of dollars'. Wasn't there a movie by that name?

I needed a good laugh this afternoon after a hot sweaty day in the field.

The moonbats would have made a mint off of Doctor Raoul, BufordP, BMWcyle, Spiff and Jimmy Valentines Brother.

They were packed up and GONE by 4:20 today.

I kind of laughed at the 4:20 reference. That is stoner's code. The significance is 4-20 is Jerry Garcia's birthday.

Hey Firebird, haven't heard from you for a while. Not since the October Debate at Sherwood.

But this is different. Any chance of coming out on an occasional bases to show support of the troops? Sure could use some more locals. There is a definite correlation between the positive responses of passing cars and our numbers.

It also seems that non-FReepers stop by more often when our numbers are larger. Just trying to build some momentum.

BufordP did a great job in enhancing my directions below:





http://maps.google.com/?ll=39.015783,-77.144237&spn=0.014538,0.023732&t=h&om=0
Take Wash. Beltway to I-270 Spur North towards Frederick.

http://maps.google.com/?ll=39.060416,-77.148571&spn=0.014529,0.023732&t=h&om=0
Take Exit 4, Montrose Ave., East. Be sure you quickly get into right lane when you merge with I-270 proper. When you get on exit, stay in left lane and take Tower Oaks Blvd. turn off. **(If you miss this exit turn off, go onto Montrose Road and make immediate left at light onto Tower Oaks Blvd)** Follow left turn off to Tower Oaks Blvd. (light), turn left. At next light, Wooten Parkway, turn right.

http://maps.google.com/?ll=39.076509,-77.132735&spn=0.014526,0.023732&t=h&om=0
Stay on Wooten Parkway,
http://maps.google.com/?ll=39.084705,-77.129431&spn=0.014524,0.023732&t=h&om=0
which turns into First Street then Norbeck Road, but at all times it is MD Rte. 28 after you go under railroad/Metro tracks, for approximately 5 1/2 miles to Georgia Avenue, MD Rte. 97.

http://maps.google.com/?ll=39.109451,-77.08025&spn=0.014519,0.023732&t=h&om=0
Make left, North, onto Georgia Avenue and go 3 miles to Olney.

http://maps.google.com/?ll=39.152644,-77.067826&spn=0.007255,0.011866&t=h&om=0
Make left, West, onto Olney-Laytonsville Road, MD Rte. 108, and make first left into shopping center. Park next to Popeye's and we are right there.

You are most welcome to join us on Saturday, or Friday at Walter Reed. Take your pick, though I'm biased to Olney since you are on our thread. :-))

You will definitely have a most rewarding experience either FReep.

There are even FReepers around that you might be able to car pool with, at least part of the way. Come on down!!
