CA: Chico Rally After Action Report and Photos!
Chico Rally ^ | 10/30/2006 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 10/30/2006 3:57:57 PM PST by Jim Robinson

We had a great time at the rally and dinner Saturday in Chico!! And I think the people there were glad to see us too! I'm sure it gets tiresome to see the left out protesting week after week. Thank God we have Son of SoldierDad out supporting our troops every week, but it's hard doing it all alone. Lots of people honked, waved or gave us a thumbs up as they motored past and we had lots of pedestrians stop to thank us and talk to us too. One family even stopped and held signs and flags for a half our or so. Hoping maybe some of the Chico residents will start joining Son of SoldierDad in his lonely weekly support our troops vigil.

We really enjoyed meeting SoldierDad and family and it was an honor to stand with them in support of their soldier son and brother in Iraq and our troops! May God Bless and protect them all. We are so grateful for their service for our country and for our freedom.

Freepers present:
SoldierDad
Mrs. SoldierDad
Son of SoldierDad
Grand daughter of SoldierDad (Megan)
SoldiersPrayingMom
Jim Robinson
Sheila Robinson
Chris Robinson
Syncro

Thanks for the ping.

You and I may have some disagreement on the nuances of advancing the conservative agenda but I have absolute respect for your dedication to honoring the sacrifice of those in our uniformed services.

When I viewed the photo of you sitting on the street corner, slugging it out in relative obscurity, I though of my father, who risked his life in similar obsurity, not for fame or fortune, but because he understood it was right and necessary to preserve the freedom he enjoyed.

Thank you for reminding me.

I ain't picky. Smash the Democrats early and often and as hard as we possibly can. I guarantee you all conservative boats will rise.

And next time I won't be distracted by them dang cheerleaders, and should be able to get there in time!

I'll be back later with my excuses and apologies for being late, gotta go to a meeting now.

It was a GRATE time, SoldierDad and an honor and a pleasure to meet some of your family.

Two of my favorites here...

That look on your Soldier Son's face just screams "DIE TERRORISTS!"

I guarantee you all conservative boats will rise.

That may well be, but us folks sitting amidships on the USS California still see water rising in our port side holds while the captain is constantly assuring us that this great ship of state can handle the list.

Right now what concerns me is the number of life boats available should the California founder. Each night I watch these small boats disappears away from our starboard side, carrying the captain's benefactors, loaded to their gunnels with tax revenue or bonding proceeds.

First step is to torpedo the Democrats before they torpedo us. Then we can do damage control.

Aye, aye skipper. Man the torpedos and flank speed on the motors.

Begging your pardon sir, but how will the boat hit the target if we keep veering to port? Should I aim further left?

Dammit man. You can't miss the target. We're surrounded by the filthy buggers. Vote "R" in all races. We're bound to knock out some of them.

Logan's Roadhouse, one of my more pleasant memories of visits to Chicoville. Got to give y'all credit, there are some very rabid Lefties in that neck of the woods. Good place to make a stand.

Hi cybercowboy777. Glad to hear from you. I'm not a Chico native, but a transplant from circa 1964. My father was in the USAF, and we moved around a lot.

We will most certainly give you a ping for the next one. FYI, my son stands on that corner almost every Saturday from around 12:00 noon to around 3:00pm. If you have a free Saturday please feel free to stop by and say hi, or even join him.

I missed the boat on this one. I live within an hours drive and I would have been there if I had known about it.
Use this next time there is anything planned in Chico.

I was born in Chico @ Enloe Hospital.

Then we moved around a lot (My dad was in the USN).

After 12 years in the Navy, we moved back to Chico and then to Durham. Live there 6 years and then move to Washington.

My grandparents still lve in Durham and own rentals in Chico.
