A Few of FR's Finest.....
......Every Day

FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues; salute and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which we can express ourselves.

Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   I can remember lurking when there were only a few regulars who posted, and now there are over 60,000 who have registered for posting privileges. The forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.






A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I can no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I've been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.

Still that doesn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why, in addition to seeing FR's Finest Military Personnel every day, I thought it might be fun to feature a different FReeper (or FReepers) each day. If you would like to be pictured, or know someone who would, please FReepmail me and we'll turn the spotlight - on YOU - for the day!

And do let me know if you'd like your picture added to the groups of Veterans/Active Military below. I will keep this page updated, and continue to add them to the comment section of the original Veteran's Day thread as well.

To the Bushmobile, W04Man!!
by FreeTheHostages


God gave W04 man two hands for a specific reason: so that he could hold *two* signs about President Bush’s re-election in 2004 at each event he attends! Here’s a military hero and soon-to-be Bush reelection hero who knows that 2004 is, well, just next year. He has founded his own grassroots activism campaign, complete with a website and stickers and his own Bushmobile!


~~~~Talk about your self-starter!
W04man has been preparing for 2004 for some time. About a year ago, he started his "Bush 2004 Grassroots Campaign" website. He did so because he became really impressed with President Bush and how well he was running the country, especially after 9/11.
"So I got the idea to start campaigning for him because I knew he couldn't start campaigning himself. After seeing a couple of Gore 2004 web sites, I got really ticked off. I started the Bush 2004 Grassroots Campaign from the W-04.com website. At first, I thought it would get support from local Republican Committees or maybe the RNC. I found out later that this couldn't happen at the local level because of the McCain/Finegold Campaign Finance Bill. So I am the sole financial supporter of the Campaign."
He gets some financial help from the sales of products, but concedes he’ll never catch up for the investment. His family supports the campaign: his older brother Melvin helps with the sticker mailing from Louisiana, and of course his wife is supportive.
"She supports President Bush also; otherwise we wouldn't be able to live together like we have for 44 years. I tell my wife that this is my campaign contribution for 2004."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Running a grassroots conservative campaign, W04man of course has found common cause with the local DC Free Republicans.
"While gathering email addresses and sending out emails to publicize the Bush2004 Grassroots Campaign website, I ran across FReeRepublic.com last July. I've been hooked on FR ever since. I had tried using Yahoo Groups, then MSN Groups, thinking that would stir up some support for Bush2004, but I have found out that FR has produced more results, and it gives me a great outlet to be an activist. I check FR frequently all day long when I'm at home, and when I'm traveling (pleasure of course), I check in with my laptop."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


W04man takes his message to the street on his own when he has time, such as in this photograph, shown outside the White House the day of President Bush's "State of the Union Address."
W04man supporting the President, January 28, 2003


~~~~~The Bushmobile
Of course, such a superhuman grassroots effort to reelect our forty-third President must be accompanied by proper wheels, and W04man’s taken those wheels into lots of high visibility places, including the 2002 July 4th parade in Dale City, Virginia.


~~~~~Lining up the votes
for the next generation of Republicans
Our reelection superhero, Mr. Oliver Perry Ditch (aka O.P. Ditch), was born in Lafayette, Louisiana (cajun country) in 1937. His mother's Maiden name was Broussard - a good cajun name. He was named after the doctor that delivered him, Dr. O. P. Daily. The "O.P." also stands for Oliver Perry, the admiral.
"My wife is also from that area. We graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (ULL) (way back then it was called Southwestern Louisiana Institute). We've been married for 44 years and have 4 children and 6 grandchildren."
He lives in Virginia now and attends many of the local Freeps.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


W04 has three Republican children and one on the fence who's leaning liberal (he lives on the Left Coast). But here’s the good news:
"I think all the grandchildren will be Republicans if they follow their parents."
Ah, if only there were a way to get them to vote in 2004!
You're going to fall in love with this little tyke (maybe even vote for HIM for President in, oh, about 2048?!). We didn't have to twist his arm too hard to convince W04 to let us post a photo of one of those grandchildren. Here's Jacob, and he's already campaigning for Bush in '04!


~~~~A distinguished military record
W04man spent 22 years in the United States Air Force; he retired as an 06 in 1983. With too much modesty, he adds as an afterthought:
"Oh, I forgot to mention, I did earn the 'Legion of Merit' and the 'Bronze Star' while in the service. The 'Bronze Star' was during my Vietnam service in 1966."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


After retiring from the Air Force, he then went to work for Hughes Aircraft Company in Northern Virginia for 13 years. He has been involved with the internet since 1995 when he retired for the second time and started a home-based business creating internet websites. It was "too successful" and got to be more than he could handle; he sold it to one of his old AF buddies, and it's still going strong under the new ownership.
W04man’s second effort to retire did give him more time for the Republican cause, so he joined the local County Republican Committee. Being fully retired, he needed to find something to do. (Don’t you love this guy?) He is not *resting.* His grassroots website came as an outgrowth of his third futile effort to retire, when he "first helped a couple of local Republicans with their election campaigns. Mostly with donated web services, sign posting and a little lit dropping."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well, W04man is not all work and no play. He and the missus like "crusing" and regret that they cannot attend the FreepsAhoy trip because of a previously scheduled cruise!


~~~~~It’s Getting to Be About That Time

W04man takes photographs and videotapes of various conservative events and posts them on the web. You may have seen his photos of CPAC 2003 on Free Republic. He reports that his first actual Freep was on March 1, 2003 at the Rally for America IV. (Hmm, I dunno: his own grassroots activism over the last year in this area qualify as very good Freeps-of-one.) He reports that he had "a lot of fun."   I noticed! I was working the press table near where he was standing and he caught my eye because
  1. he was so tirelessly holding up multiple Bush 2004 signs, and
  2. he really did enjoy himself thoroughly.

Here he is - on the Right, of course! - at the end of the rally when the veterans were asked to come on stage.
And, like a good activist and a military veteran, he was also thinking tactically smart: I couldn’t help but notice that he stayed near the front of the stage and was careful to make sure his Bush 2004 signs were never too far from the CSPAN cameras! Even when he’s blocked from the shot, you can see his tall Bush 2004 signs!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Somewhere inside his patriotic heart, W04man knows this is not a good time to retire! 2004 is just around the corner; it’s getting to be about that time. *Do* check out his website: he has great grassroots ideas and campaign paraphernalia for re-electing President Bush.


W04man attended his second Freep with the DC Chapter this past Saturday, March 15, 2003. Donning a red-white-and-blue hat, he became an attractive target for Fox News' national camera staff. He gave a great, clear quote about supporting President Bush and the troops.


Way to go, W04man!

Chapter members, Freeper's Finest is featuring a new DC Chapter Freeper you may have met at the March 1st rally and at least weekend's counter-Freep: W04man. He has a grassroots campaign already underfoot to accomplish his latest mission: it's nearly 2004, that time to re-elect President Bush!

I haven't been able to read this thread in about a week and I've missed it. I read half this thread today, but will have to leave and come back later. You all do such a good job and I'm always so impressed with the FReepers I get to meet in here.

I have some paper work to get done immediately, but I wanted to pop in and tell everyone Tim finally got a job yesterday. He'll be in Nashville for 5 months. Praise God!

Meek, it was wonderful to spend the afternoon with you last week. Everyone, if you ever get a chance to meet Sir Meek, don't miss it. I hesitate to share too many good things about him because you all might think I have the hots for him...LOL...but Meek is a wonderful human being! He's a gracious, gentle person. LOL I'm crazy about him and miss not being in Texas so we could FReep together. Meek, you are a blessing of a friend and we hope we can stay friends for a long time.

Have a good day y'all. Gotta get. I'll be back later to finish reading about W04man....what a great guy!

Because you're new to the thread, I should explain that the doctored photo of you with the lovely ladies about the Bushmobile in post #2 show you with the various hostesses of this Freeper's Finest thread. (Or at least their heads, I regret to report that that's not my body in that red dress, alas!) Billie felt that in light of your appearance in a tuxedo by your Bushmobile, it was only appropriate for the hostesses to don evening wear to welcome you! So that's what that is about.

Welcome and congratulations! As you say, "fly the flag."

I enjoyed our lunch last Wednesday with you, your Mom and your son Jonah. You are my good friend, Miss SpookBrat! Thanks . . .

I was thrilled to read that Tim found another job. Give him my regards. "Howdies" all around the SpookBrat household, ok?

I plan on going to the Dallas Pro-America Support the Troops Rally. Apparently Houston isn't having one so the Houston FReepers are going to be at the Dallas Rally. It looks to be a BIG 2 hour event Saturday, beginning at 3 p.m. at the old red courthouse downtown . . .

Isn't he great? He's created graphics to integrate his Freep bumping with his website's message:


He's right! From now on we shouldn't just "bump," we should "Bump and Relection Bush"

That's wonderful news about your hubby getting a job. Nashville is one of my favorite cities....haven't been there in a few years but I have enjoyed the times that I spent there in the past. Be sure to check that place out when you and the kids go to visit him.

God Bless Our Military

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Below are names of some of our FReepers' loved ones who are serving our country. If you have someone you would like to add, please address a post to Billie; Daisyscarlett; Dansangel; Dutchess; Mama_Bear; and we will add their name to this list. As we pray for them, we pray also for all our nation’s leaders, and military personnel, and their families and friends. May God hold them close to His heart.
~~~~~~~~~~   ~~~~~~~~~~


We ask Lord, that You guide the leaders of our great country in their hour of decision. The burden that has been placed on their shoulders is overwhelming. We ask that with Your infinite wisdom You guide them gently to the right decisions.
Please give us the strength, Lord, to get through each difficult and devastating day that faces each of us and our country. Protect and guide our Military that are now being called to duty, strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

He should be here soon and we can ask. I think he wakes up earlier than us and may already be out and about doing chores.
