Posted on 05/21/2009 5:30:15 PM PDT by trooprally
Two local Olney businesses, Fletchers BP and Greaves Auto Repairs & Appliance Center took it upon themselves to put up flags along the two main streets in Olney. About 5 years ago they got the necessary permits and paid all expenses to put the flags up from Memorial Weekend till after the July 4th holidays, and the again during the Labor Day Weekend. When flags get worn or faded, they replace them. You can see the flags in various pictures. In some pictures you need to look closely at them to see the flags in the back ground, but in the picture BELOW: of me you can see the one on pole that supports our flags. We had a light rain while we set up but none as our rally progressed.
Another good moment was the local, Charles,BELOW: who came by and helped support our troops. He was in the Army in the late 70s to early 80's. Turns out he is the nephew of Legionnaire Francis that regularly comes out and stands with us. The Legionnaires were in parades this weekend and couldnt show up in Olney.
BELOW LEFT: Fraxinus, Cindy_True_Supporter, Charles and me, with wave from car. BELOW RIGHT: Lurker Bill enjoying himself.
BELOW: Cindy_True_Supporter also enjoying herself. Several weeks ago a lady stopped by to thank us for being out there and her comment about the moonbat was how sour they always looked. To be honest, if I had to listen week in and week out at all the honks we receive, I would be sour too.
As already shown The 6 Patriots this Saturday included Local Charles, Lurker Bill and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, [Mrs] Trooprally and myself.
Some neat pictures by [Mrs] T of our supporters.
BELOW LEFT: This F450 has been coming by for the last 4 weeks and honking its horn. So what you say, well his horn is louder than a trucks air horn. You can almost feel the reverberations from its noise. BELOW RIGHT: Look closely at the back seat, one of our younger supporters.
FYI - the moonbats numbered 8. Still less than they had after their Peace Conference 5 weeks back.
WISHING EVERYONE A SAFE AND MEMORABLE MEMORIAL WEEKEND. PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE PASSING AWAY.

Congratulations on a #1 Job well done. There is still hope for us.
WOW ! I didn’t know that and I live in that town. Great AAR Mr T .
I’d love nothing more than to display my flag the way it should be. However, since election day 2008 mine has been flown upside down signifying a nation in trouble and or in distress, and I have a feeling it’ll stay that way hopefully only until the DemonRats are the minority again in 2010.
Thank you from the Olney patriots.
Olney is one area that conservative have been gerrymandered into 2nd rate citizens, but Olney shows we are a force to be reckoned with.
At least VP Cheney is speaking up. He’ll be our saving grace.
Yes, MrT...fine report!
I enjoy the supporter pictures too..
Nice to see the familiar faces there.
Wasn’t it nice to hear him?
I loved it and hope he keeps it up. It will help to stop the re-writing of recent history by these new ####. (Can’t use any word I want to, or Jim Rob might ban me!) LOL
Soon you will be one of those familiar faces.
