  • Statement by the father of Lance Cpl. Hunter “H.D.” Hogan (KIA 06/23/12 Re: ROE)

    Lance Cpl. Hunter “H.D.” Hogan entered the USMC 26 OCT. 2009. He served with the 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division. The most outstanding custom in the Marine Corps is simply “being a Marine” and all that it implies. Call it morale, call it esprit de corps, call it what you will — it is that pride which sets a United States Marine apart from the other armed services. It is not taught in manuals, yet it is the most impressive lesson a recruit learns in boot camp. It is not tangible, yet it has won fights against...

    I got an email yesterday from a friend wondering if I was interested in going to an anti-ObamaCare rally in Boston. To be honest, I didn't want to go. I was still fairly glum about the Supreme Court decision regarding ObamaCare. There were a lot of things today I would have much rather been doing. But I have been grousing so often to friends and acquaintances about this decision, I didn't feel as though I had any choice. So I went. It was a small crowd (I am guessing in the range of 50-100) but they had some speakers who...
  • After Action at OKC HealthTax Rally

    07/07/2012 1:32:33 PM PDT · by DaveinOK54 · 6 replies
    The Good Lord Blessed us with an overcast sky so the heat was bearable. About 300 were there, which is pretty good considering there was only about a 3 or 4 day notice. One thing I noticed was that there were a lot more young folks attending than usual and I've been to most of the rallys here since 2009. I have some pics, but need educated on how to post them.

    Will you stand with us for religious freedom? America was founded on the principle of religious freedom, an unalienable right enshrined in the First Amendment. Now, however, the President has ordered religious schools, hospitals, and charities to violate their consciences by paying for products that they believe are immoral, including abortion-inducing drugs.
  • PHOTOS: Student activists protest ObamaCare at Supreme Court

    06/28/2012 2:58:41 PM PDT · by oliverdarcy · 36 replies
    Student activists from around the country gathered in front of the Supreme Court on Thursday to protest ObamaCare, formally known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.” The young conservative activists made it clear they opposed government interference in health care and specifically targeted the bill’s individual mandate. “The federal government does not have the power to mandate that I purchase a specific product, like health insurance,” said Marjorie Jeffrey, a graduate student at Baylor University. “It certainly can’t force me to pay for someone else’s health care.” Other students opposed the narrowly upheld law for other reasons. “I...

    Silver Star Families of America ^ | 2012 | Steve Newton
    I hope this is not an improper request. But since the Silver Star Families of America was practically born on FR I wanted to make a request for donations. We have had so many requests for our food coupon books to give to homeless vets that go to V.A. Medical Centers that we have run out of funds. Also our Chaplain run Prayer Blankets for our Hospice vets program is in the red. The mission of the Silver Star Families of America is to remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces from all...

    Fast and Furious is one of the biggest government scandals in recent history.President Obama would rather protect corrupt officials like Attorney General Holder, than ensure justice for those harmed by Operation Fast and Furious. The blood of border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, and many others, are on the hands of President Obama and AG Holder. Protest President Obama and AG Holder in front of the White House's North Lawn, and show our government that the American people won't stand for secrecy and corruption!

    Metro-Kiwanis Park hosted a variety of faith-based citizens Thursday night for the Stand Up for Religious Freedom rally. The outdoor event held at the gazebo to the right of the play area began packing in the people around 6:15 p.m., toting lawn chairs and signs in support of the movement. Several local churches have openly opposed the Department of Health and Human Services mandate stating that all insurance must cover birth control and abortion-causing drugs and chose to attend the rally as one unifying body. Sheila Bedford, rally committee member, said the rally was not just about getting together in...

    Indict Holder Protest July 20th (pending) After discussion on Twitter with Twisters Founder I learned they are planning a protest in DC on July 20th. Details are still being hammered out so noone should make plans to go yet. Many people are angry about Holder's contempt and the Twisters want to protest in favor of indictment. They are open to any help that can be provided to make this happen, and would be glad for any of us who could attend to come along, and if Freepers can bring a few hundreds or more to join in that'd be just...
