emphasis on "small"
Yes, small, and they got a long time to get to D.C. and get numbers. It's hard for people to just pick up and leave for a week or two, and that's what they're doing now. The Gathering of Eagles is a huge event and I'll be there. The emphasis won't be on "small."
The LATimes emphasis, not mine, I hope you know.
Sorry, I read that little quip as an attack on MAF. My apologies.
Jim Robinson checked in here... http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1797982/posts?page=104#104 ... after the L.A. Rally. Note that Jim reported 300 rallyers and the Times 100... oh so predictable.
Group Tired of War Criticism Made Fresno Stop (with video, ABC bias warning)
Just like the Vacaville story disappeared:
Pro troops rally stops in Vacaville
They're not "sorry." I hate liars.
Jim just reported in from Blythe, AZ on kristinn's thread, you know, the one with the name I wish he would have changed ....:)
See my pings.
dripping with bias!
My reaction was "Really? You're warning veterans to not upset your group. You're wanting people with combat experience and hand-to-hand training to be afraid of what you're going to do? You should worry about not pissing off the vets. You should ESPECIALLY worry about the older guys. The ones without wedding bands. The ones whose kids have grown and moved out, and whose wives have moved on. The ones who have nothing left but their honor. You should think about how they will feel at any attempt to desecrate that which they hold sacred."
