Huge thanks to Slings and Arrows for making up for my towering technical incompetence.

Now, some comments about the photo and the poster. I took the photo at the 9/12 D.C. Rally. I knew what I wanted, a Les-Miserables-type crowd dominated by the Gadsden Flag at the center. I was surprised and pleased that with a one-shot cell phone, I got the photo I'd planned.

The Tea Party movement doesn't have a symbol, and needs one. The Gadsden Flag, the rattlesnake and the slogan "Don't Tread on Me," seems appropriate. And it is so recognizable that it would get our message through to the people despite the MSM fear of covering what we do.

This poster, and the flag it displayed, should start appearing EVERYWHERE where the MSM must point its cameras. The World Series, and the NBC Today Show outdoor audience are obvious targets.

If all this makes sense to my colleagues on FreeRepublic, please get out the word on this poster -- anyone may use and reprint for free, anywhere -- and the flag. Please, however, do pass on the word on ping lists and elsewhere that this photo and poster came from your colleague, Congressman Billybob.

Cordially, John / Billybob

When we were at the Tea Party Express, we met the sweet young man that was beaten by “the other side” for selling this very flag. Both of us old ladies gave him a hug.

This just a thought, so here goes.

How about a streamer like the military uses, with FRee Republic on the first one. Then as time goes by there could be others added to celebrate different marches or events the flag owner might want to display.

No answer required.

Great photo, BB. I was on the other side of that statue on 9/12 and was thrilled with all the Gadsden flags.

Texas has Texas State Rifle Association plates, and but don't appear to have NRA plates. (TSRA is the Texaa Afiliate of the NRA).

Where could I find or purchase a bumper sticker like this? I would like to buy at least 5-10 like this, and give them to friends & family.

Thank you. What a pleasure. The second year needs to be 2010, rather than 2009.

A few years ago the police pulled a couple of guys out of a pickup truck they were sitting in in front of a bar and did a search. They found a small amount of cocaine. The judge asked what the probable cause for the search was. They said it was because there were guns displayed in a gun rack in the back window. The judge said "Not in this State" and threw it out of court.

Not defending people who use dope, but take from it what you will.

23 posted on 12/20/2009 6:33:58 AM PST by Rappini

Certainly a valid way, for a picture. But the literal question was slightly different, referring specifically to "posts/threads."

The obvious way to "keep" an FR thread is to bookmark it; the bookmark function is found by looking just above the first reply on the thread.

Another way, of which I plead guilty, is to create or adopt a thread, posting in replies to it links to other threads/posts which seem germane to its topic.

That was what motivated me to learn how to post HTML links in the first place.

When you want to create a link to a specific reply in a thread, you should click on the number of that reply in the thread. The URL which appears in your browser is then the address you want to paste into your link.

I've been flying it since the Socialist was sworn in. I want to see that flag everywhere. It would be a fine way to mock the thin-skinned ego in the White House.
