"Swift Boat Veterans For Truth" Pledge Challenge

Posted on 08/24/2004 9:21:06 AM PDT by Lunatic Fringe

Edited on 08/24/2004 11:20:30 AM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

Freepers....

I will pledge $0.25 per week until election day (maximum of $50 per week) for every confirmed NEW donation to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth posted in this thread.

Confirmation numbers would be nice, but if you don't have that we'll go by the honor system. Please freepmail a copy of donation confirmation email, including the header information. Thanks.

Onward to victory!

I was going to pledge a dollar a week for each donation, but I know how motivated Freepers can be...

I never got a confirmation number on my two donations, just an email thanking me.

I think the Swiftvets have served enough already. Rather than asking more of them we can help them get the message out.

1st download the videos and burn them onto a CD or DVD then go to BC04 and Sign Up to Host Your Own Party. Or attend one someone else in your area is hosting and HAND THEM OUT! Take lots of extra copies. Blank CDs are about $0.10 or less. Blank DVDs are about $0.60. (If you don't have a DVD burner, you can get one (for your PC) for about $100.)

Hell people! These veterans went to the other side of the planet, risked their lives, suffered an ungrateful nations disgusting "welcome home", and now thirty some years later are still serving us. They are disrupting their lives, opening themselves up to the Democrat "anal exam" attack machine AND donating the proceeds from the book to veterans charities!

For cryin out loud. WE ARE THE GRASSROOTS! WE ARE AMERICANS!

Let's get with it people!

You can download the MPEG here!

You've inspired me, Mr. Fringe... I will match your donation every week. So now, between the two of us, we have $0.50 for each new donation each week.

Cheers,
SCR

I don't have a credit card but I just sent in a check for $50.00 along with a letter thanking the SBVTs for what they are doing.

I'll send you a copy of the cancelled check if you need that for verification.

I replied to you on the "swiftvets.com down for contribution" thread a little while ago with a $25.00 contribution online to the Swift Vets.

Thanks for your matching funds!

You know I just thought of something....

I used to work for the law firm that Ted Olson (Solicitor General) worked for, and who represented Bush in the Florida recount.

I guess my "close ties" to Bush will be under the scrutiny of the Kerry campaign.

Hey Patty, no fair, now I have to go back and send another $50.00.

Other NEOhio FReepers send in their bucks?

Anybody else from NEOhio going to the KerryLied Rally in Sept? Or do I have to ride alone?

This is an open invitation to ALL FReepers, veteran or not, Vietnam era or not. Please join us on September 12th as we tell the world that John Kerry was a liar and traitor then, just as he is a liar and traitor now

KERRY LIED . . . while good men died

A gathering of Vietnam veterans from across America

John Kerry told the world we were war criminals who raped, tortured and murdered in Vietnam. Now, thirty-three years later, we will tell America the truth.

Where: Upper Senate Park, Washington, D.C. It is easy to get to, shady and pretty, with a great view of the Capitol dome in back of the speaker's platform.

When: Sunday, Sept 12, 2004 2:00-4:00 PM (EDT)

Why: To tell the truth about Vietnam veterans and to counter the lies told about Vietnam veterans by John Kerry

All Vietnam veterans and their families and supporters are asked to attend. Other veterans are invited as honored guests.

Link to Printable Flier

If you are in DC on the 11th, look for the National March Against Terror.

I went to your web page, I think we are. You just got to the party a little later. The only problem with that is that the targets are usually a little picked over.

I like fresh targets. But as long as there are targets, I'm cool. John Kerry's true story as told to me.

First Down Kerry




This is how I flew above, the jungles there in Nam.
I held the skid and fired my gun, bam bam bam bam bam.
We approached the landing zone, I was the first man down.
“First Down Kerry”, I was called, Air Cav had come to town.
I designed the Huey, the Cobra, the Jolly Green.
Still I went to fight VC, I was a lean machine.
Swift boats, choppers, bombers too, ah yes I did it all.
For four months I was busy, but still I took the call.
I served with honor, brave, and true, saved so many men.
Viet Nam is safer now, I would go back again.
