The following are photographs sent to me by SoldiersPrayingMom of the Freep held this weekend. She says that lots of drivers honked enthusiastically! Thought you all would like to see them.

And one final picture... although it unfortunately came out blurry, shows why we are fighting for our country... to preserve it for our children:

Even though I like the picture of Jim, my favorite is of the young girl holding the sign that says, "We all came from another country. We all become Americans." Nicely put. Frames the issue of immigration properly...we aren't against immigration, but for assimilation.

"We ALL came from another country......

That was my very favorite one too!

Simple, "but straight to the point!

Woo hoo!! Grate pics!!

We had a great rally in Fresno last night. There were about a hundred of us countering two groups of antiwar leftists. There were a couple dozen Peace Fresno antiwar socialists on one corner and a half dozen or so pro Palestinian/pro Islamic fascist leftists on another. Then us on our corner. But we had a sound truck. And we blasted out patriotic music and military marches that reverberated loudly over the entire battlefield. The poor peaceniks didn't stand a chance. Out numbered, out smarted and out gunned at every turn, they were finally blasted out, surrendered the field and retreated early to their snake holes.

Freepers present:

Me and Sheila
JustAmy
PrissyMissy
Mama_Bear
JKPhoto
SoldiersPrayingMom
90+ members of the Riverdale Assembly of God with signs, American flags, flags of every service, and 1 sound truck.

The rest is history!!

I wish that people in my community would come together like these people and demonstrate their support for our troops (instead of those who stand on a corner in our down town area protesting our troops). My oldest son stands alone on a corner just down the street from these cretins holding up a sign which reads "I stand with President Bush and our Troops". He does this most saturdays for hours, all alone. This saturday he was screamed at with "murderer" and accosted by several of the "peace" protesters who came to his corner and got into his face. That is the level of support displayed in our city (Chico, CA). What a shame.

By the way thanks for the post and the great pictures! And we owe a special debt of gratitude to the youth group of the Riverdale Assembly of God. This is the second rally in a row that they turned out in large numbers. What a great bunch of patriotic kids! Nice kids like these coming up gives us great hopes for America's future. God bless them all.

LOL!!! sorry for messing up the original, but I saw the picture and used it to learn "camera mapping" in a 3D program. :) I didn't do a perfect job after I posted it i noticed that her shoulders weren't aligned with the ground correctly ehh... oh well, I got the general idea.

Well, thank you and thank your son. We'd sure love to join him sometime soon to counter the leftists. Maybe we can get something scheduled and hopefully get some of the Northern California FReepers lined up to join us in a FReep.

Terrific numbers.....nearly 3:1 ratio!!!

It is wonderful that the the church youth come out to help!Our young people add such energy and purpose to the FReeps. They are a wonderful testament to what our country is about.

Thanks for the ping!!

What a wonderful rally for America! This remindes me of a song often sung at Assembly of God churches...

I went to the enemy's camp, and I
took back what he stole from me...

If it wasn't such a long trip for my husband and I (we live 45 minutes south of Fresno), we'd come up and stand with your son and protest those America-hating malcontents. God bless him for taking a stand.

"The poor peaceniks didn't stand a chance. Out numbered, out smarted and out gunned at every turn, they were finally blasted out, surrendered the field and retreated early to their snake holes."

They probably dug a few NEW snake holes, just to quickly get away from you guys.

ROTFLOL!

Great job!!

It was a great rally! Those kids from the church are wonderful supporters of our military and their mission. (The dinner afterwards was good too!)

JK took photos too, but hasn't sent them to my computer yet. If/when he does, I will post a few of them.

I understand. I've often wished that I could travel across the country and stand with others showing support for our President and Troops, but distances (and work) keep my from that. Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

To: stephenjohnbanker

Thank you for your kind words. I don't think of myself as all that remarkable. I'm just an American who loves his country and countrymen/women. My son's also have that love of country. The person who deserves the compliment of being remarkable would be my Grandfather. He fought in the trenches of France in WWI. He passed on his patriotism to all his children and grandchildren. We've had many family members in uniform, with some serving overseas during a time of conflict or war.

Right now not only is my son serving in the war, but my brother's son is as well. My sister's son already served one tour in Baghdad and may redeploy before the end of the year. My sister's husband's niece is also in Iraq right now. All of this came from our grandfather; may God Bless his soul in Heaven.

A few of our regulars were missing Friday night, so it was with gratitude that we watched approx 100 young people coming down the sidewalk carrying flags and signs.

We missed FriendAnn; Enterprise; notpoliticallycorewrecked and Gracie1.

The motorists get really involved when they are met by 100+ cheering young people. They will not be able to join us every month but they plan to attend whenever their schedules permit. Thank you, Riverdale Assembly of God members!!
