Posted on 01/31/2007 2:42:16 PM PST by Just A Nobody
The purpose of this thread will be to pool our resources and ideas to counter the attempted take-over of our nations capital and foreign policy.
It is not the place to voice your disgust with those that feel it is necessary to present a street presence to counter the dregs of society seeking to undermine and destroy our country and our leadership. If that is your purpose, please move along.
On January 27, 2007, Thunder90 posted a thread to advise us of the next convergence on our nations capital by the anti-American hate-mongers. This gives us SEVEN WEEKS to organize and strategerize.
While reading Thuder90s thread and the AAR from the DC Chapters counter demonstration last Saturday, January 27th, you will find inquiries in regard to transportation, hotels, metro lines and the like. There were also a number of Freepmails discussing these issues.
For those interested in making our presence known in Washington, DC on March 17, 2007 please feel free to offer what you can.
· If you are driving and have room for others, let us know the general vicinity you will begin the trip. I have an offer now of someone willing to pay for half the gas to share a ride.
· We already have offers of rooms/beds for those that need a place to stay. We can always use more!
· Perhaps you can rally enough interest in your area that renting a van or chartering a bus would be worthwhile. Let us know and we will see if that can be arranged.
· Those that live in the greater DC area or will have a vehicle at your disposal may be able to help shuttle folks from hotels or metro stations.
· We may need wheel chairs and those to push them.
· Those that have blogs, talk shows, columns or access to others that do please share!
Any specifics should be discussed via FReepmail!

There are no formal plans at this time. Why plan a big rally/counterdemonstration if no one plans to attend?
Rest assured the DC Chapter faithful, with assistance from local citizens and troops, will be in DC on March 17th between 11:00 AM and however long it takes to ensure our presence is known.
The question is WILL YOU BE THERE?
Would it be out of place on this thread to say
GIVE 'EM HELL!!!
Please ping me as soon as we have an official flyer for the event. I have a couple of Lodges in my area, as well as, a motorcycle bar where I can distribute the flyers.
I also have some family that live near military bases in Maryland and can have them post flyers in local stores near the bases.
Also, seems others have already thought of the same things I had....like.....do you think it's possible to get this linked up to the Patriot Guard Riders website?
I'm working on my area. See what I can do.
I know you're not local, but thought you might be interested in reading about this (didn't see your names pinged) and spreading the word to anyone who might be in the area.
You'll be missed.
Who do you commit to and how do you commit to attend?
Let me know and I will add you to the list of those I have heard from as definite attendees.
Check out the "UPDATE" at #62 to see if you can help in any of the sections. Thanks for alerting your vets!
We're making plans to be there. Anyone from points west or south of Cincinnati Ohio -- we have one extra queen sized bed, two couches and lots of floor space. Freepmail me if you're interested
Rolling Thunder, PGR, American Legion and others have been contacted. Awaiting formal word from them. Feel free to contact your local clubs.
If you wish to be added to or removed from this ping list please FReepmail me.
You never know who may be up for a road trip! Thanks for spreading the word!
working on setting up a counterdemo here in Madison as well.
I LOVE these posters! But I seem to have a problem with the link; I can't get anywhere in your site. Any suggestions?
Go for it! I didn't check your profile; if that's in WI, I think "Uncle Jimbo" from www.blackfive.net might be interested as well (don't have his email address with me but it's on the site).
Please ignore last message--it just took a while to show on this library computer!
I will attempt to contact him.
When will you have them all uploaded? ;*)
The Code Pink "Pull Out NOW" one in particular!
We need details on where and when the Freepers' counter-protest will be gathering. My wife is ready to buy the airline tickets and reserve a rental car and a motel room.
