FReepers see Moonbat's "Christmas Past": Week 47 - Olney,MD, 11-18-06: Operation Infinite FReep
Novmeber 21,2006 | Trooprally

Posted on 11/21/2006 11:01:24 AM PST by trooprally

This had to be the wildest, craziest, wettest and most fun Olney FReep yet.

Let me think, Moonbats wishing they were in "Christmas Past", BMWcyle having WATER THROWN ON HIM and being FLIPPED OFF, DUELING BULL HORNS and FReepers UPSETTING THE MOONBATS, and some IDIOT ARGUING that "FREEDOM IS ABSTRACT". Oh yea, and the POLICE WERE CALLED. That covers the bigger high lights.

To begin somewhere and get the mandatory 'paper work' done, the moonbats out numbered us 11 to 9. But they were "most miserable" today. But that is normal for the A. Bee Normals.

Those in attendance include BufordP, iMacMan (iMM), BMWcyle (BMW), Apple Blossom and daughters, Cindy_True_Supporter (CTS), [Mrs] Trooprally ([Mrs] T), and myself.

Pics by [Mrs] T and iMacMan. iMM multi-tasked 4 things today. He held a sign, took pics, operated "Mr. Little Bull Horn" and argued with an idiot.

The cyclists, two questionable women, stopped in front of us on the sidewalk for the light. One made a comment to the other about us, that of course, BMW took offense to. Especially when the cyclists said that she wasn't talking to him. To those who know BMW, you know how easily he gets his feelings hurt. (heeheeheehee) But after some words with BMW, CTS and Apple Blossom, one got off her bike, unhooked her water bottle, and threw water on BMW saying "Cool Off".

BELOW LEFT: The 'Smoking Wet Sidewalk'. As they were leaving, the arguing continued, and one flipped off BMW (BELOW RIGHT). Pics by iMM.



BELOW: Before I get to far into this thread, let's play "Find Waldo", aka Barking Waveman. He IS in the pic. His spot is reveled at the end of this thread. iMM pic.



It seemed that we just had a great time today. I'm not sure why. BELOW: CTS enjoying herself. iMM pic.



We had three drivers snap a salute when they passed. Mr Bull Horn, operated by BMW, Mr. Little Bull Horn, operated by iMM, and CTS's, BufordP's and [Mr] T's hollers upset the moonbats. The bull horns also Thanked the supporting cars in addition to telling them to hug or kiss a vet. We all threw in a few "Quakers are unpatriotic", "liberals are parasites, tape worms, ticks and ...", "Pelosi says NO to Impeachment", "War freed the slaves and saved the Jews", and "We want an Iranian Nuclear Free Zone".

BELOW: The Patriotic Side. Pic by iMM

BELOW LEFT: Lurker Bill couldn't make it today so one of the 'daughters' took his position. BELOW RIGHT: Other 'daughter' with mom. Myself and BufordP in back ground. [Mrs] T's pics

BELOW TOP: iMM, Apple Blossom, BufordP with cigar and Mr. Bull Horn. BELOW BOTTOM: Apple Blossom, CTS, BMW and yours truely. Pics by [Mrs] T





We don't know who called the police, the cyclists or moonbats, but one showed up just before both sides broke up. He had a complaint about our bull horns. He questioned us as to what we were saying. After some discussion primarily with BMW, BMW and the officer struck a deal. We'll stop with the bull horns (we were just about done any ways) if he tells the moonbats to keep their signs off the side walk. After a friendly handshake with the officer in full view to the moonbats, the officer walked over to the moonbats (BELOW) and talked to them. We'll see what happens next week but be it known, we are working on a surprise for them. Pics by iMM



BELOW: iMM's wondrous pics of passing cars. He missed the hearse with the flag draped coffin in it. It was leading the funeral procession when the driver honked and waved while turning in front of us. Several other cars also honked or had mourners wave to us.







BELOW: I'm talking to a supporter after he called me over. He wanted to talk about the moonbats and quoted FDR to Albert Einstein, something about Freedom is not in danger by Hitler, but by those Americans who do nothing. He may join us next week.





And I'm sorry to say, even after the liberals took over both Houses, the moonbats haven't given up.

BELOW: I think Scrooge would have had a heart attack if he saw these idiots in his Christmas Past visit. Pic by [Mrs] T



BELOW: This idiot, talking to Apple Blossom, initially came up behind me saying "Freedom is Abstract". Soon half of the Olney FReepers had a piece of him before he slunk back to his car. [Mrs] T's pic

The hearse story reminded me of my own story. Jan and I were coming back from MS on a 4 lane road. We noticed that all of the cars were on one side of the road but we were talking and not paying attention. None of the cars had their headlights on so we just got in the left lane and passed everyone. Imagine our surprise when we got to the first car and it was a funeral procession. Like I said we were not paying attention to the cars that were in the line of cars. Taught me something that day!

I wish I was closer. Yuma has two bases in it, so there isn't much protesting (they like our money too much), but I wish I could be a help in a counter-protest somewhere.

I guess I'll just remain a Key Volunteer and help where I can.

I just clicked on FR and it was as slow as molasses. When it finally did, this story was the first one. I am getting ready to go to the drugstore to get me some Excedrin. I have had a headache for about 4 or 5 days. I was taking some Tylenol 3 and they just made it worse. It is a gorgeous day in AL but kind of chilly--45.

Great job on the FReep and AAR!!! Thanks!

Of course not. Now they think they have a mandate to continue destroying our country.

are not winning the day. Sooo typical.

Belated "WELCOME TO FREE REPUBLIC!!"

There are many ways to help the troops as I'm sure you know. With the holidays upon us I'm sure all the packages and cards you can send them will be most welcomed.

We all do what we can. That's what matters. And when you get to the D.C. area, let us know. The moonbats are everywhere here. I'm sure we can find something for you.

SEMPER FI and Happy Thanksgiving.

Yea, it is common for the moonbats to call the police on FR. That's one reason we watch what we do.

You can always start a positive Freep for the troops in your area. You don't have to wait until moonbats show up.

I'm not sure you did anything wrong. Passing one is OK, it's causing it to to be delayed or separated is a NO-NO.

My dh is an active duty Marine, so we are always involved in any pro-troops events here.

I'm cooking an extra turkey for the barracks for Thanksgiving.

I also do my part to boost hubby's morale ;-)

He & the rest of his unit are rotating to Iraq in late February, so we have been busy getting ready for that. After the holidays, it will be here before we know it. But this area is pretty pro-military. Not quite as much as Cherry Point/Havelock was, but not as bad as it was at Pendleton.

Thanks for the warm welcomes.

I thought that too since I had no idea it was a funeral procession. But, I was born and raised in the South and we stop for those. It was also odd that no police escorts were seen. Guess it did not matter since it was in the backwoods of nowhere. It did turn off the road we were on right after I passed them. Made me feel odd for not knowing.

Great job, Olney FReepers! Sound ordinances are all about the decibles. Tell them to explain how many decibles are allowed and you will turn the volume down to that level. They'll have to get their own decible measurements to prove you went over, anyway. If they ever do measure it, they'll probably find out the highest volume of the bullhorn is below the level approved as highest allowed.

I think I spotted Waveman!

Not quite the wording I saw, but then again one gets crossed eyed looking at the moonbats.

We can always count on you for a good laugh.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.

A couple of years ago I attended my Aunts funeral in NC. I must say that funerals in the south are very orientated around etiquette. It was much different than I what I am used to in the DC area.

"Freedom is abstract"? WTH does that even mean?!
Is he trying to knock Cindy Sheehag's comment "Freedom is free. If it weren't, it would be call expensivedom." comment off the podium as the most inane quip ever?
Hey there moonbats, don't waste your time putting that gem of wisdom up on Cafe Press, LOLOL!

Well done, thou good and faithful FReepers. Perhaps the moonbats could use a little Pilgrim history reeducation this Sat. in honor of Thanksgiving. In short, parasitic socialism nearly killed them all.

When our daughter died in 2004 and my husband on July 8th of this year, we had a police escort at the front and at the back. Cars stopped along side the whole route to the cemetery.

This guy tried to explain to me that freedom is different depending on where you live. It's a different concept if you live in the U.S., China, or Iraq. I'm sure his point was that we are trying to give our American version of freedom to Iraqis who don't "need" as much freedom as we have here.

I explained that freedom is a very simple concept...you know when you have it, and you know when you don't.

Yeah, I'm a newbie here for about a mouth or so.
Caught an inadvertent link and found a true home.

At age 18, I had the honor of voting for Ron Reagan
for his first term of Duty. Am ever happy for that
choice and the sweeping, positive change that it has
had within this Country. It took a while as the MSM
fought him all the way, but the wellbeing fortune
and optimisms of Americans soared again....

Next time you are "hassled by the libbies calling
THE MAN on you", take a page from their play-book.
Tell "THE MAN", that as a members of a demographic
group, that is now in a minority(Republicans), that
you all, demand a Public Defender immediately, on
premises, to defend you rights.

I'm 100% serious about this as I believe in fighting
fire via fire. They have gotten away with such tactics
for far too long and the best way to get rid of this is to
use the same ourselves, until the tactic is played
into the ground....JJ61

We'll have to remember that and use it until at least the '08 elections.

The officer really wasn't a problem. They had been driving by all morning because there is a Police Satellite Station several blocks away so this is a major travel intersection.

But we now have all the Code information concerning noise and bull horns that we'll keep with us.

Looks like you all had a GREAT time! Thanks for all the pix/report!

I wanted to send this(and prolly will) to my friend who will be attending the DC party ..

A suggestion that might be in EVERY AAR is to have a short introductory "mission statement".. so those who might not know what/where/why etc can in a few short sentences KNOW what is going on!

There are new FReepers to the thread & people can invite NON FReepers & give PR with the threads.

You all do a great job & I cannot wait to stand shoulder to shoulder with you all in a few weeks again.

I trust there will be ample signs for both Olney & Walter Reed.

In the Christmas Party Thread the invite is out for FReepers to come to Olney and back to our house for some early fun before the official 2 PM Party start date. I am assuming we'll have enough FReepers to occupy the three corners that the moonbats don't.

Therefore, the MOAB will be there. Did you notice the new MOAB foot supports? No one needs to hold it now so if we are short FReepers, it can now be free standing. Last Friday it was tested and it held up to some wind without a problem. One Saturday it work very well though it did teeter a little because the front feet hung over a small slope. But we have that problem already solved.

We also have extra "surprise" signs when we have enough FReepers in Olney, courtesy of BufordP. These signs are not held at Walter Reed because the pinkos are no longer within sight. But they are great for Olney.
