Okay, so since Kerry has now jumped in with both feet, does this mean the Swifties will now get involved in calling out Murtha? I doubt it, but one can always hope.

I just pray that our Sunday rally isn't dwarfed by the sleazeballs on Saturday. But given the history of conservative activism, I'm not holding my breath.

Cheer up, Coop. I think John Kerry will step in it at this rally, and Wesley Clark won't be much help, either.

I think you should derive great satisfaction that Kerry is going to show up. A lot of Viet Nam vets remember him, and it is not with affection.

Coming Soon:

The ABSCAM evidence John Murtha’s kept hidden for decades.

Vets for the Truth has obtained a copy of the complete, unedited FBI-Murtha ABSCAM video tape. This no-holds barred, real-deal video has never been seen before.

Soon Americans will know just how crooked Murtha is.


The complete, unedited Murtha / FBI ABSCAM video tape will be online soon.

I guess they missed the NIE report that read staying the course and win in Iraq will be a defeat for the terrorist.

Murtha's Leave Me Alone Rally is looking more entertaining by the day. Kerry is sure to whine about dastardly Swift Vets tarnishing the noble career of yet another Vietnam veteran -- this despite the fact that no Swift Vets will actually be at the Boot Murtha Rally...

Great news! Kerry turns everything he touches into a disaster. I'm sure this rally will be no exception. Even if they manage a bigger crowd, that doesn't really matter. What matters is energizing enough voters to turn out and vote Irey.

There has been a lot of great conservative activism surrounding the Irey campaign so far. Lots of cash and volunteers. But October 1st in Johnstown is a day to stand and be counted. It's the least we can do for our troops and our country.

What a group of seditious thugs and traitors -- Kerry, Clark, and Murtha! Does anyone really take them seriously? I get serious nausea just thinking about that bunch of liars. Traitor Kerry and his questionable Vietnam experience, Wesley Clark, responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilian SERBS, and Murtha, a common thug with direct responsibility for putting into jail the Pendleton 8, and a questionable past, also! What a bunch!

Wes Clark almost irritates me more than Kerry or Murtha. The psychopath tried to start a shooting war with Russia but fortunately the soldiers under his command refused his order. Yet now he assumes the anti war mantle.

I unerstand your frustration, but you have to remember that people like me (58-year old grandma) can't really drive 800 miles to a rally. My life just doesn't allow it. Sorry.

I do what I can donating and digging up information. Local folks need to be the ones who attend rallies.

Hi Coop! Not at all surprised that Kerry and Weasley will join the Murtha anti war rally.

Sorry I didn't get to meet you at last Saturday's D.C. Rally to Support our Troops. Wanted to thank you personally for delivering my goody packages to WR Hosp.

Hope there's a good turnout for the boot Murtha rally.

Ahhhh, yes. The ol' "attack the messenger" approach. But at least jla has the guts to do it to my face, unlike bmw.

Free Republic is absolutely pathetic when it comes to doing more than talk. I keep asking folks to prove me wrong. Not ONCE has anyone been able to do it. The D.C. Chapter put on an awesome event, just like last year, only this time they even spent money advertising it. People travelled in from CA, PA and elsewhere. And they still managed 70-100 people. Wow.

Yes, I chose to skip last weekend's rally, after Larry Bailey decided not to have a "Boot Murtha" booth. I figured attendance wouldn't top 200 (who knew I was being overly optimistic?!?), so I did a charity run instead. And have no regrets. If I never attend another "Support the Troops" event as long as I live, I'll still have accomplished more than 95% of the crowd at this forum.

Now run along and find a nice "penis" or "breast" thread somewhere.

I wonder how many people will decline your "invitation" to the Johnstown rally out of disgust with your smug attitude and obnoxious delivery. The number is much bigger than you think.

I'll still have accomplished more than 95% of the crowd at this forum.

I'm betting some of those accomplishments were actually positive, too.

23 September - Support the Troops & Their Mission

The D.C. Chapter of FreeRepublic.com invites all those who support our troops and their mission fighting the war on terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere at home and abroad to join us in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, September 23, 2006, from noon to 3 p.m. on the grounds of the Washington Monument at 17th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW.Announcement here 1 October - Boot MurthaCome to the National VFTT Boot Murtha Rally Sunday, Oct. 1st in Johnstown, PA Location -- Cambria County War Memorial Arena, downtown Johnstown (Murtha's hometown!) Time -- 2:00...


Golly gee, Petronski. As you can see up above I tried your "Leave it to Beaver" hugs 'n kisses approach, and that rally ended up with a whopping 100 folks (the majority of which were the same FReepers who do 99% of everything around here). And it's been that way for eight plus years. So I'm not worried about upsetting your precious little comfort zone.

Folks that truly get angry at my comments urging more action and denouncing laziness ought to take a hard look in the mirror.

But why do that (which might involve effort and subsequent action), when you can just blame mean ol' Coop?

Thanks for the bumps. Keep 'em comin'!

You post "I don't care. It's not about me." followed by a long tirade about how much it's about you.

Your Nude Kournikova thread, a low even for you, was posted long after you started your "Freepers are lazy bastards" schtick, and in any event hardly qualifies as a "hugs n' kisses" approach.

Oh, and I'm happy to provide the bumps. Perhaps folks will be emboldened to know they're not alone in their disgust of your "the beatings will continue until moral improves" school of motivational thought.

No kidding, Einstein. The "shtick" started last year after this "conservative forum" completely blew off the America Supports You and D.C. chapter's "Support the Troops" rallies. Just like it did this year.

And no, it wasn't a new low, Einstein. I did a similar thread last year involving an alleged nude swimsuit model. FReepers swarmed to that thread as well.

OK, I'll post the quote, observe that Petronski did not use the word "new" in said quote, and further request both of you to have a second cup of CHILL. We're all supposed to be on the same team here.

Coop, Western PA is a long way from North TX (I know cuz I drove it last May to visit my wife's family), but my Credit Card number and donation made it there to Ms. Irey's in seconds flat. There are A LOT of us doing what we can.

And BTW, bump.

If I have one person to credit for me working up the nerve to drive to the WR FReep, it's Coop. Honestly. He shone the hard light of truth inside my heart. Yes, it was uncomfortable to mull over his words, but in the end it motivated me to put my words into action.

Coop is who he is; he may be gruff but he has a big heart. Ignore him if you don't like his psyops. Please let's not derail this thread, which should be a place for information and action.

And yes, there are some around here who are doing what they can in a variety of ways. There always has been, and I applaud & thank them. But they're a minority, and it doesn't change my opinion of this site's collective laziness one bit.

But it's not just this forum, it's conservatives in general. They're great at griping around the water cooler, but God forbid you ask them to actually get involved.

It's true, and I've been meaning to thank you. When your "cyber-scolding" became more psychologically uncomfortable than my persistent Situational Anxiety, I finally sucked it up and took the leap. I was shaking like a leaf and chain-smoking for the first hour of the drive, LOL!

Facing a fear is the only way to conquer it. If veterans like you and our beloved WR patients can put themselves out on the line for me and my family, the least I can do is return the favor.

Wesley Clark makes me ill. He is nothing but a Arkansas shill for Clinton. He has no real stand on anything. He is a party hack. He was a nobody and now he tows the party line as a democrat military man. I do not believe he has one true belief or principle. Most things he has never thought through. Plus his son has a potty mouth on the campaign trail. No manners.

You're right that negativity isn't exactly the way to draw a crowd. But try to come Johnstown anyway, Petronski. Fellowship with Freepers-even the crabby ones-is always uplifting. And the cause is a great one.

"Positivity" has been shown time and time and time and time again not to work around here. Negativity at least results in a troop support/activism thread receiving 500 or more views, as opposed to the normal 150.

And save your cyber breath. Squealers like Petronski never have any intention of going to these events.
