Posted on 09/05/2006 3:19:31 AM PDT by trooprally
RAPID TRANSFORMATION FORCE REPORT No. 2:
Last week's opening line: "What a great week to be in Olney. Hot & humid, but the overcast kept the sun from baking us."
What a difference a week makes, and Ernesto!
The Rapid Transformation Force (RTF) was activated this Saturday. While seriously out numbered 3 FReepers to 8 moonbats, we were there. Wet and soggy for the second time in 24 hours. In addition to Ernesto, we rained on their parade once again. And once again they huddled before they left. I assume they'll have a different time for next week. That's fine with us. We need to keep them moving.
They had their "Abinormal" moonbats in attendance. No additional new ones. BELOW: Barking Waveman and Chief Grumpy were back after several weeks of no shows. MOBilizing Mothers (ALSO BELOW) was represented by their regular ONE. Way to mobilize. It was raining so Mr. Bull Horn stayed in the car.
Peek-A-Boo and The Sitter (TOP) were there, along with the others (BOTTOM).
And of course we were there, Cindy_True_Supporter (CTS), [Mrs] Trooprally ([Mrs] T) and myself. Due to our small numbers CTS (BELOW LEFT) was doing triple duty. The wind was calm and there was just a heavy drizzle, so her task was a little easier. And I was also there (BELOW RIGHT).
We had a family, who recently moved to the Olney area, stop by and give us some coffee. The husband was an Iraqi War vet. The wife and kids said they will be out next week at our regular 3PM FReep. The moonbats were watching all of this. This past winter the moonbats only had one person bring them something to drink. We had about 5 or 6, including one service member that gave us our blue "We Support Our Troops" banner.
After the moonbats left, we stayed for a while longer, than went home for lunch.
3PM FREEP REPORT:
It was soon for our regular 3PM FReep. The rain and wind had picked up since we were last out there. This was our third wet FReep in less than 24 hours. Lurker Bill was there once again, so we numbered four. Our numbers were thin, but we still occupied both corners. Because of the rain, we did not deploy all our banners. The blue banner is an all weather material so that one got put up. This is the one mentioned above that was given to us.
BELOW LEFT: CTS does double duty. BELOW RIGHT: [Mrs] T. We finally got a pic of her.
BELOW: CTS and [Mrs] T. on the southwest corner.
BELOW: Accident about 200 yards east on Rte. 108. With a major hospital in Olney, there were a lot of ambulances coming by.
On the northeast corner, (BELOW LEFT) myself setting up while Lurker Bill is all ready FReeping. BELOW RIGHT: I'm finally FReeping.
And once again, all the honks and waves were for us. This week is the fourth week we have occupied the moonbats corner.
Pics were mostly taken by [Mrs] T and some by myself.
We need to have a sub-group of 3Fers. The "Wet NoodleFers". CTS, [Mrs] T and myself FReeped three times in Ernesto. We've basically been wet for about the last 24 hours. Sunday was spent drying out flags, the banner and signs.
Olney, What a great place to FReep.
Next Saturday, same place, Georgia Avenue, MD Rte. 97 and MD Rte. 108 in Olney
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.
Cindy Sheehan's personal trip to D.C. has been cancelled, but Code Pink will be there. FRee Republic's rally last year was a success for such short notice. Now you have advance notice. The troops need to see that we support them. They are getting tired of the driveby media throwing mud on everything they do.
Please send This pdf Flyer to others. Print out (In Profile) the following flyer and distribute. Flyer compliments of \/\/ayne, Thanks.
RE: Olney FReep -
We also need good crowds at Olney the next several weeks to help cover both corners. If you can make it, we would appreciate your presence. It might be a little dull without the moonbats there unless you are part of the RTF. FReemail us if you want to be part of the RTF.
At least you know all the waves and honking are for us and that is invigorating.
If you live in northern VA and want a short cut to Olney, Check out Post No. 39. It's an easy 20 minute drive from the American Legion Bridge.
A special Thanks to BufordP for enhancing the original plain type directions.
The Archive of Olney FReeps is here or in the LINKS section of Trooprally's ABOUT Page.
An appropriate wet ping to you all.
Hopefully, I will be able to pull up the flyer later today!
Looking forward to you one day being on the RTF.
Well, you know what my schedule is like for the next 2 months. ;*)
A peck on the cheek will suffice.
Hi TR. Thanks again for your faithfulness. I have to chuckle when I think that the moonbats are still wondering how in the world you guys know when they will be there. Do you suppose they think there is a mole in their midst? Are they looking at one another with suspicion? LOL
Hey...there are those who said you are "all wet" anyway! LOL
I can't believe you faced Ernesto 3 times! That is definitely a new 3fer SUB-CLASS...actually a sub would have been nice.
Not a SUB to go with the coffee, one in which to keep dry and peer out through the windows!
Just bumping through. Hope you've dried out by now, and the banners aren't too soggy!
It looked like a perfect day to go to the cozy Olney Ale House for beef stew and their warm bread.
Thanks for supporting our troops.
Do I have to send 2 responses too! LOL
Hope sometime you can come out to Olney.
