Chris took a few photos at the start of the FReep. These photos do not do us justice. This was at the very beginning of the action and all the people were not there yet. JustAmy and mtngrl also took some photos and they will probably post them tomorrow or the next day.

Don't forget, big counter-protest tomorrow at noon in the Tower District. Hope to see you there!

I suggest we meet at about 11:30 to 11:45 Saturday morning in the parking lot across from their rally point. Then we can counter them from across Olive Ave. Bring flags, signs, bullhorns, cameras, videocams, etc. At the end of their rally, we can drive up Van Ness Ave and wait for them at the corner of Weldon and Van Ness near the FCC Campus. Wouldn't want their little "Peace March" to go uncountered.

Just a reminder: we were at peace before 9/11. The terrorists started this thing, but, God willing, we're gonna end it! Peace does not come without a price. Neither does Freedom!

We were visited by a transvestite prostitute from the other side for awhile until the police came and chased him away.

Oh Geez .. LOL

CreekBlood may be one of the new guys. I believe he said he was already registered, but had not been posting much. Guess the others will have to make variations of their favorite nicks.

I think so. Don't know if he made much money tonight though. His bag of quarters looked a little on the limp side. Man, was he ever an ugly hooker.

I hope someone got a picture of this guy. He was really something to see. Looked like he'd been hit by an ugly stick. And it didn't miss. Notpoliticallycorewrecked said that at one point, he got into the face of one of the policeman. She said it looked like he was just about to the point of submitting to an involuntary take down. Now, that would've taught him a lesson (maybe) for hookering on our corner!

HAH! I see that I'm not the only FReeper awake! Are there any more scheduled this weekend in your area? We have Saturday in Longmont, Ft. Collins and Loveland, then Sunday in Denver.

Well I'm that Creekblood....the very same one at the rally tonight...I've been a member here for sometime, just have not been active. I'm the Vice-Chairman of the Young Republican Federation of Kings County. The YRFKC along with many other Young Republican groups from around the valley are planning a rally at FSU! I'll keep you posted as this develops! I really enjoyed the rally and meeting many of you. I hope to see all of you again!

SWEET! I'm jazzed that I figured out a way to make signs with my computer. All anyone needs is Paint Shop Pro and a printer that prints "Poster" format. I have an Epson Photo 820 and lookie what it did....

It must be nice to finally FReep without night vision goggles, LOL!! GREAT turnout FResno! The useful idiots were surrounded and you stole thier thunder as usual. This weekend must be the FReepiest ever, there are FReepers just coming out of the woodwork all over the country, it must make you very proud.

T-minus 6 hours until another Colorado tripple FReep. We are all fired up this weekend and it should be a blast. The peace-niks no longer have the only point of view being represented in the media and it must drive them nuts, (short trip). I have not counted how many FReeps going on this weekend across the country but it is awesome to see FReeping really take off.

Thanks Jim for this wonderful website, it has changed my life for the better due to the super FReeeper FRiends I have met and FReeped with.
All the Best!

Welcome aboard Creekblood. I look foreward to exchanging FReep reports. Nice to see more Republican's taking to the streets in support, it really gets to the leftists who think they own protesting.

I also think it was really nice for George W. Bush to take time out of his busy schedule to stop by and FReep with you all. LOL!

Welcome aboard.

Myself, I'm with the Silicon Valley Young Republican Federation, Director at Large. We have enough problems with our San Freaksisco malcontents.

I get out to Fresno once in a while. :-)

Iron Man told me he was already registered. If not, hope he registers very soon.

Wish things had worked out for our 3 new FReepers to have dinner with us last night, but a 45 minute wait was a little much.

The Fresno Bee has an article in today's paper. I'll see if its online so I can post a link.

Hope to see you all in Fresno soon.

I think your "Jim's Gems" was probably right on. Sheila kept talking about baby doll pj's last night. She said Jim was going to wear them for a change of pace. LOL

We had sooo much fun last night. It's not often that we get the news media and the police. After the Hooker was asked to leave (by the police), Jim said "I hope you got his picture, Amy". Well heck ..... I was trying to ignore him and let the motorist know he was not with us!!!

Creekblood, we're glad that you have decided to become more active with Free Republic. Does your name indicate your ethnic heritage? If so, then we are blood cousins. My great-grandfather was full-blooded Creek. Thank you for standing up for conservative values. God bless you.

The group took and held three corners of the intersection, leaving the pro-terrorists their regular position. I think we edged the darkside out in number and definitely had them surrounded. I'd say we undoubtedly put a damper on their anti-war protest!

FResno FReepers ROCK!!!!

You guys are such a marvel to behold! A credit to the United States of America. May God Bless you abundantly for all of your efforts.

Great to meet another Muscogee! I'm Creek (Muskogee), Cherokee, Scottish and Irish, with a little this and that mixed in over the years I'm sure! So basically I'm AMERICAN!!!

Thanks to everyone for being so kind and friendly at the rally and here at Free Republic.com!
