Laura Ingraham Leads FRiva Las Vegas Speakers!!!
FRN ^ | June 25, 2002 | The Shrew

Howdy Freepers,

For the last six weeks the FRN Conference Committee ably assisted by Diotima and ReaganGirl have been working on speakers for the upcoming Friva Las Vegas First Annual Conference!

It is my distinct pleasure in announcing the the following:

Our Reception will be hosted by Ms. Laura Ingraham!

Freepers will remember Laura from her guest appearances on MSNBC during the impeachment of bill clinton! She is now the host of The Laura Ingraham Show" and has promised to deliver a wonderful speech! Her wit, style, grace and incisive reasoning has troubled the left for years and now you get to hear her in person.

Your attendance at this reception will help highlight a weekend of Conservative Activism! We can then return to our various states, precincts and parishes and put into work what we will learn from the instructors of

The Leadership Institute

In each of the sessions Freepers will learn how to implement Grassroots activism in their community and to make the biggest impact possible. How do you make that transition from Keyboard Cowboy or Cowgirl to Freeper Activist? Come here and learn from the best. Just in time to help in the Fall 2002 elections!

Think FRiva Las Vegas is just for fun? Well, Our lunch speakers will help convince you otherwise! Chuck Muth - Executive Director of the American Conservative Union.

Chuck is former Executive Director of the Republican Liberty Caucus and is the publisher of Chuck Muth's News and Views. This newsletter is essential reading for any Republican Activist. Chuck sometimes even takes an irreverent look at the RNC! He ALWAYS takes an irreverent look at the DNC! His experience in grassroots organization, planning and campgain strategy are a must listen to for Freepers.

Chuck will be omnipresent through this conference and will be featured in the Leadership Institute training as well. You can find Chuck Muth's News and Views here!

Our featured Lunch Speaker will be William S. Lind of the Free Congress Foundation. Mr. Lind is one of the foremost conservative thinkers on Terrorism, Islam as a threat to America, and the entire process of Political Correctness as an extension of Marxism! His speech will be challenging, thought provoking and you will need a margarita free brain to appreciate it.

Our featured Saturday Night Dinner Speaker is one of the backbone Conservative Political Commentators speaking today. Rich Galen has published Mullings - a Cyber Column. Here is one of my favorites:

MULLINGS
An American Cyber-Column

Memorial Day

Rich Galen
Monday May 27, 2002

[This is a reprise of Mullings from Memorial Day, 2001.]

We went to Arlington National Cemetery to attend the annual Memorial Day observance. The Lad was in charge of President Bush's appearance and he graciously offered to get us seats in the Amphitheater to watch.

The entrance to Arlington National Cemetery is directly across the Potomac River from the Lincoln Memorial. These two historical – mystical – sites are connected by the Memorial Bridge.

At the entrance there is a sign which asks visitors to remember this is an active cemetery with the words:

"Welcome to Arlington National Cemetery,
America's most sacred shrine.
These are hallowed grounds."

The Mullings Director of Standards & Practices and I made our way up the walkways, past the many small groups of school-aged children and their chaperones listening to docents explain what they were looking at.

They were looking at rows and rows of American flags which had been placed in the ground front of each and every headstone. There are over a quarter of a million people buried at Arlington.

Generals and privates. Admirals and seamen.

Each headstone gets its own flag. Each flag, the same size.

We walked the grounds, map in hand, grass wet from days of thunder storms, the morning still cloudy and threatening. We paused and reflected, having found what we were looking for.

We made our way to the Amphitheater where the ceremony would take place.

The Lad spotted us. As he led us to our seats we each took one of the small American flags which were being handed out by elderly vets. Holding my flag, I read the inscription above the stage: "We, here, highly resolve that those dead shall not have died in vain."

On cue, the Air Force Band and Chorus began to perform. On cue, the sun peeked out.

An announcer informed us we would hear a 21-gun salute signaling the arrival of the President on the grounds. Off in the distance, there was an order followed by the report of a cannon, then another order, another report, and so on. Twenty-one times.

During it all, the crowd stood silently.

The announcer then said the Army Band would play the National Anthem, after which the President would lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. The Tomb of the Unknowns is located to the rear of the Amphitheater on a large, elevated deck, out of our sight.

At the playing of the National Anthem, the military personnel snapped a salute and everyone else put hands on hearts.

After a delay, during which the wreath was placed, we could hear, very faintly, the sound of taps.

The crowd was hardly breathing; as if breathing might drown out the sound of the bugle.

The President arrived on the stage without Ruffles and Flourishes. Mrs. Bush took her seat, without fanfare.

After the opening prayer, there was a recitation of letters written by young men in different wars, in different places. When it was completed, there was no applause. The crowd was silent.

This was not a ceremony of pomp and circumstance. Nor an occasion for soaring rhetoric.

The President spoke, quietly, of sacrifice, and of duty, and of honor. He spoke of young men and young women who would never live out their lives. He spoke of the last kiss between a husband to his wife; the last wink and wisecrack of a brother to a sister as a train pulled out of a station; a father and son hugging for the final time at an airline boarding gate.

Afterwards, we stood amid the crowd watching, silently, the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns; the military ballet which takes place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Arlington National Cemetery, on Memorial Day, has nothing to do with the sweep and grandeur of history, nor the gigantic commitment of resources to battles and wars; nor grand strategies and brilliant tactics.

It is the place where – and the day when – we remember the men and women who were killed at Pearl Harbor, and on Omaha Beach, and at Bull Run, and Verdun, and in Korea, and Viet Nam, and Afghanistan, and all the other un-locatable places with unpronounceable names where we have sent young men and women to fight and, too often, to die.

Arlington National Cemetery, on Memorial Day, has everything to do with a single white headstone. Nestled in a neat row among all the other white headstones next to it, in front of it, and behind it. Up hills and down swales.

We had paused at one white headstone, among a quarter of a million others. The one with the words:

John Hugh Curran
Captain
United States Air Force
World War II
1914-1962

Flags in hand, in the wet grass, on a gray morning, of Memorial Day, at Arlington National Cemetery, we paid our respects to her dad.

And prayed, silently, that he rest.

In peace.

This man is one of us! He is not an inside the beltway type. He answers email. He knows the system, the players, the bad guys, the Congress, the Senate and the Administration like few in the country. He will speak and make you think, cry, feel and want to make a difference.

I am proud to have been a part of this selection process. I am excited that Freepers will get to hear a set of speakers who represent the best of the internet, Conservative Grassroots Activism and Conservative thought! Make it a point to come hear them! It's going to be a blast!

Our featured Saturday night dinner speaker, Rich Galen, writes beautifully. Thank you for posting his Memorial Day article. It's a gem. This is going to be one hell of a Freeper conference.

I think it's a keeper. In fact. We should post it on the Freeper USO Thread. Snowbunny would like it.

I think Rich is going to be the surprise of the conference! Thanks for noticing!

How many Longhorns will be there?

I've been betting that Arizona will have the most Freepers on the honor roll. California is the HEAVY Favorite. Texans won the Freepathon! So, they always have a chance. But, my personal bet is on Arizona!

So, who's it going to be!

Of course he's surrounded by a gaggle of hot babes who want his mojo.
