Weather permitting I will join anyone in DC that is willing to deal with this.
thanks much. After all these year I still haven’t figured out the Ping process? [grin]
Wow. Acoording to them, this country has been the greatest purveyor of violence in the world for MORE than 40 years. How can they even STAND to live in such an evil place?
They should think about emigrating to a more safe, peaceful and MORAL country, like Somalia or Bosnia or Mexico.
Of course. The obligatory anti-Israel contingent will be there.
you mean this our big chance to network with Progressives and other interesting people, young freaks and old hippies? Wish I could make it.
I’m a vet. I say to you...NO THANKS.
How was that WTO protest in Seattle a few years back?
When Code Pink(o) has their protests in Sacramento I frequently bring a Soviet flag to wave around. I figure a little ‘truth in labeling’ is always in order.
Ah, the lies that leftists tell themselves. I guess that it feeds their self-righteous sense of self-importance, but it only displays their ignorance, the depth of their bias against their country, and the nature of their agenda. No serious historian (ie, no one who believes that Noam Chomsky is a great thinker and moral authority) would even remotely concur.
Sorry. I AM A VETERAN.
I am an American and a Patriot.
I support the defence of my Country and its citizens and fully support the troops that are fighting the islamofacist attempts to destroy America.
Here is the reaction of a few young Marines who had fought and lost buddies in Iraq, when they had to listen to some POS who said something like "I have a DD214 too..."
I'll stand with these guys anytime.
What brings you onto FR to pimp this meeting of losers in DC? No wonder you took crap.
Er, uh? I’m ‘pimping’ this event to try to generate a response. The DC Freepers have the stuff.
In stead of protesting these wars why don’t we get a President that would be committed to WINNING them.
Maybe use ROE that make sense to a combatant and not to a bureaucrat.
It wasn’t like there were any other Communist nations aiding the North Vietnamese military... < /sarc >
The Red diaper doper babies need to wake up from their “hate America first” phase and look at Africa (all the way up to the Middle East).
And note all the millions fleeing to that successor of the Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere, the realm of Islam.
Card carrying Communist revisionist historians like Howard Zinn lie by omission. Those who seek to bash bash bash America never allow cross-comparisons to the rest of the nations in this world, let alone those embracing the very evil political ideology that the speakers secretly advocate.
Sorry. The post was so generic I missed the “deal with this” part at the very end. So, I guess you aren’t going there to participate, but to counter protest.
I would have put something at the very top. Why did you receive heat on this in your last posting then? Perhaps someone misunderstood you the way I did?
Are you posting this to try to gather a counter-protest? If so ... you should probably make that more clear, because you're coming off as a supporter. If not, you're barking up the wrong tree.
Why do I get a request to log into some skeezy website (idisk.me.com) when I click on this thread?
“I was castigated for my last post about this.”
Normally, I would agree with you. However, since the ROE’s have changed and our boys are not allowed to win this war, what is the point of them being over there? Cannon fodder? I think we should bring them home as well, but not because I don’t think war ever solved anything. We should bring them home, because they deserve better leadership than what we, the American people, have given them. For that I am sorry.
I don’t agree with the reasoning of these peacenik, commie morons, but at this point I do agree with the objective, I am sad to say.
Maybe it’s just because I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but I took “deal with this” to mean he was trying to organize a counter-protest.
However, I agree that he needs to be MUCH more clear about which side he is on.
I think we need to get out too.
And here is how
Your lack of splaining what you mean is disturbing. You may want to define whether you are for it or again it.
Well, I’ll admit that past experience (lengthy) with FR as doers has jaded me. Most seem to have wits and a modicum of intelligence.
You’re making me feel as though I should offer a sort of step-by-step thing?
Bad guys - DC December 16 - does anyone in the DC Chapter of FR have the time or gumption to organize something counter?
Yanno, I rather strongly agree with you. Just had a long phone chat with a freind who, with me, did GoE 1 and Eagles Up.
Bottom Line... If we allow ANYONE to to paint troops deployed in this sort of anti-war cachet do we not risk much?
Shrug. Perhaps I do need to simple words more.
Sounds you don’t like us unsophisticated dumbasses here, our lack of nuance.
You complain that you were castigated previously and then post in cryptic ambiguous fashion yet again.
— Shrug and eye roll ——
That’s better. Just say “Let’s counter protest”. Otherwise, people will think you are with them. That was my first impression.
Mine too. He could have been a bit clearer, but sounds like he’s on the right side. Happens...
I hold to:
