Important 2nd Amendment Rights Mixer and Strategy Session - Thursday, July 18, 2002

What: Alcohol may be consumed, tobacco products may be consumed (on the patio), firearms will be discussed (hence "ATF Night"), and for the hungry, absolutely delicious food is available. At ATF Night we do allow anyone who would like to make announcements to do so.

Where: San Gennaro Cafe (banquet room), 9543 Culver Blvd., Culver City, CA (310) 836-0400

When: Cocktail hour starts at 6:30 p.m., during which those who desire may order off the menu; we generally begin our program around 7:30 p.m.

Who: Anyone who is interested in liberty.

Why: Because we enjoy our liberties.

How: Your only limitation is your imagination.

Where else can you find on one delightful evening . . .

An Informative & Interesting Address by a knowledgeable and entertaining speaker Fabulous, Friendly Patriots eager to make new friends and share information Heavy-Hitters in the movement to restore all of our Second Amendment Rights Absolutely DELICIOUS food and drink Creative and Elegant Men's and Lady's Second Amendment Jewelry The opportunity to Hear and Be Heard regarding our God-given Rights

Highlight of the Evening: T.J. Johnston, N.R.A. Master Training Counselor followed by a Question & Answer Session

Note: Sam Paredes, Executive Director of Gun Owners of California, who was originally scheduled to speak this month, must remain in Sacramento this week due to several important bills working their way through the California Legislature. Sam and T.J. have therefore "traded" their ATF Night speaking engagements, and Sam will speak to our group in August instead of July, and T.J. has graciously rearranged his schedule so as to be our July speaker instead of in August.

LOL! It's a crazy state we live in. (And, for whatever reason, it makes me think of part of an Animaniacs song:
 
      L.A. town is falling down
      While the ground
      Moves around
      We won't let it get us down
      We're Californians!)

Nah, just a mommy. I constantly have goofy lyrics running through my head.
 
Here're all of 'em  from the above:
 

A QUAKE! A QUAKE!
Lyrics by Randy Rogel.

Music adapted from The Happy Farmer by Robert Schumann.

Yakko: This is the city: Los Angeles, California.
       On a starlit winter night
       When the moon was shining bright
       Back in January of 1994,
       At 4:30 in the morning
       And without a single warning
       Something strange began to move the floor.
 
(song begins)
 
Yakko: A quake! A quake!
       The house begins to shake
       You're bouncing 'cross the floor
       And watching all your dishes break.
       You're sleeping; there's a quake
       You're instantly awake
       You're leaping out of bed and shouting
DrSns: Oh for heaven's sake!
 
Yakko: I ran outside with neighbors
       Their faces filled with shock
       That's because I'm standing there
       In nothing but my socks!
 
Yakko: Oh, a quake! A quake!
Dot  : Say it's all a big mistake
Wakko: Just feel the ground go up and down
Yakko: Won't someone hit the brake?
       A quake! A quake!
       Oh what a mess they make
       The bricks, the walls, the chimney falls
       Destruction in its wake.
 
DrSns: I did not have insurance
       So I called zem from ze scene
       Und suddenly I'm listening
       To an answering machine say...

Yakko: Too late! Too late!
       You shouldn't ought to wait
       'Cause now you're stuck; we wish you luck
       Here comes a six-point-eight!
       Whose fault? Whose fault?
       The San Andreas's fault
       'Cause Mister Richter can't predict her
       Kicking our asphalt.
 
Yakko: Seismologists all say
       Tectonic plates are in between
       An encroaching crustal mantle
W+D  : Yeah, so what the heck's that mean?
 
Yakko: It means a quake! A quake!
W+D  : Oh really, yeah, no fake?
       We kind of had that feeling
       When the ground began to shake.
Yakko: California's great
       It's such a lovely state
       And every lawn is sitting on
       A continental plate.
 
Yakko: Los Angeles had fires
       And a riot and a flood
       And then a drought and the recession
       And then now we hear this thud...
 
Yakko: Of a quake! A quake!
YW+D : How much more can we take?
Dot  : We thought that we had seen it all
Yakko: But this one takes the cake.
       The dirt...
Dot  :             ...the rocks
Wakko: And all those aftershocks
YW+D : It's just the planet moving granite
       Several city blocks.



         (sung to the tune of "London Bridges")

YW+D: L.A. town is falling down
      While the ground
      Moves around
      We won't let it get us down
      We're Californians!
 


Yakko: A quake...
Dot  :            ...a quake
Wakko: It's time to pull up stake
Yakko: We're all fed up; we can't deny it
Dot  : Fires, quakes, and floods and riot
YW+D : We want some place with peace and quiet
       So we're moving to Beirut!


Whenever something "soooo California" makes me shake my head, those lyrics pop into it.

;^)

In deference to the "gentler" sex, we enjoy our cigars out on the patio - but it's a hoot building comaraderie with the likes of gc4nra and other veeeery interesting patriots!

Of course, there are a few ladies who also enjoy cigars with us out on the patio, and I'm sure that is something you don't want to miss!

I was going to offer to buy you a drink, but from your earlier posts I'm not so sure that's a good idea ;-)

Re: attendance: will certainly do my best. (This is a thinly veiled bump in and of itself.)

And note to all L.A. area FReepers -- I have it on good authority that an excellent candidate for assembly may be in attendance. That's worth the trip down to the westside in and of itself.

And it's very much appreciated.
