This is also an opportunity for the Bay Area FReeper Chapter to get to know each other. There won't be much time beforehand, since we're meeting only an hour before the mob arrive. But anyone interested in getting together afterwards is welcome to join the party at the Cathedral Hill Hotel at Van Ness & Geary. We went there last time and found the lobby restaurant devoid of peaceniks and therefore, very peaceful!

I'm having trouble sending out a group FReepmail, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to run a date by you all for our first Bay Area Chapter meeting. How about Saturday, March 15th at noon?

Just let me know if that date does not work for you, otherwise I'll assume you're okay with it.

Thanks!

STL

Maybe you or some of those on your ping list can help my kids and I come up with some slogans for peaceniks in our area. Any ideas? So far I've seen them holding signs saying, "NO BLOOD FOR OIL" "HONK FOR PEACE" We'd like to hold up some signs for them to read while we drive by. My kids thought it was pretty funny to see their mom hanging out the window yelling to those protesters. I think I'd rather hold a sign up instead.

Post your slogans ideas, please!

STL, I will plan to come to the march, but I cannot come up to the City 2 days in a row (ie, Saturday meeting). I will also contact the Stanford College Republicans and invite them -- OK?

It's a good idea to come up with sign/slogan ideas (I already have a bunch) -- but as ALL of our FR Chapters will be doing counter-protests that weekend, it would be a good idea to have a single thread for all of them. Either a sidebar, or if we can, a 'headline' site (like "Freeper Foxhole"). Maybe called "Counter-Protest Resources", something like that. This is very important -- it's a rare opportunity to get 'our side' heard, so we want to be consistent and effective -- but I'm not sure how to go about getting the Admin/Sidebar Moderators to set up such a thing!

If you will check out the threads for Fresno, Colorado, and Missouri rallies, you will find several examples of slogans for signs. We all share with each other, so feel free to use anything you like.

Jerez2:

I think you may have misunderstood something? You mentioned not being able to come to SF 2 days in a row. But the counter-protest is Sunday, 2/16 and the Bay Area Chapter meeting is just about a month later, on Saturday, 3/15. I hope this clarification helps!

As for coordinating the signs, that's not a bad idea, but might be a bit complicated. I'll post some sign ideas here, as will others, and we can take it from there.

Anyone else?

What's life like for a conservative in SF? Well, yes, we are often very, very angry! However, channeling it into activism (like counter-protests) really helps. Plus, spending copious amounts of time on the FReep! I also use writing as a means of venting.

It's probably not the best place on earth to raise kids, but I wouldn't know, yet...and I might try and move by then.

Living, FReeping and raising children (very carefully) smack dab in the middle of it.

"Fry Mumia"

That strikes just the right note, since International ANSWER and the Free Mumia organization are both front groups for the Workers World Party!

We're hoping to hold a Freep in Fargo, ND, on 2/14. Kofi Annan, Walter Mondale, Richard Holbrooke, and Nobel Peace Prize bureaucrats are meeting at Concordia (Moorehead, MN actually). Population density being what it is here, I hope to collect a few locals for a Freep.

Good fun, good luck, and Give 'em hell!

Try these poster slogans out. I am sure they will get a rise out of those anit-war freaks:

It's not the Oil. We want him off his Soil!

Saddam has been given more chances than Enron, Wolrdcom, Arthur Anderson and Global Crossings put together!

It's not about the Oil. Just like it wasn't about sex in the ORAL OFFICE!

Or My Personal Favorite:

FREE Tickets for anyone wanting to be a Human Shield!!!

In January, 300 Sacramento Socialist
chartered buses to attend the SF hate fest.

I'll provide a pick-up truck with a rack suitable for a large sign plus
a mobile P.A. System and a second vehicle that can take four people
comfortably.  Can we find six outspoken pro-Americans in Sacto to go?

KFBK's Mark Williams has offered to promote such an event next
week if we can generate any interest.  How about it Sacramento?

PEACE
INSURANCE!

TOUGH LOVE  for SADDAM

David... what's the chance of KSFO and you doing a live remote from the rally at City Hall... It might well be the only hope we'd have of media coverage and pulling more pro-American rally participants. Our Sacramento folks may be few in number but we're there to support SF Freepers. We've had some great inspirational speakers who can whip up patriotic spirit and great music to boot.

Obviously, we need to check on permits for sound systems and the like... but you folks at KSFO could make a huge difference in getting the message out. Without talk radio, we'd NERVER have had 5,000 pro Bush grassroots supporters at the famous rallies of November/December 2000 in both SF and Sacto.
