    Posthumously yours, Stanley Williams* By David Howard December 20, 2005 NOTE: David Howard, of Ojai, is a peace activist and writer who held a candle for Williams at the Ventura County Government Center on the night of the execution. Dear Arnold Schwarzenegger, I've been dead for a few days now. You've probably already forgotten about me and moved on to more important matters like condemning gay marriage, helping the Minutemen keep Mexicans out of California, and preparing another diatribe to deny clemency to Clarence Allen, the 75-year-old blind Choctaw Indian you'll execute Jan. 17. Still, I beseech you -- once...

    OK Freepers - I need your feedback/opinion. My folks are getting up there in years and my mother would like some kind of "alert" system in the event she falls down while my father is away. She has beginning Parkinson's so her motor movement aren't the best. I know there are alerts she can wear around her neck, phone call type of systems, etc. I'd love to have your comments on what's out there and what works.

    I and a couple of other Ventura County Freepers are going back to school next week. We are taking some political science classes and starting up a chapter of David Horowitz's Students for Academic Freedom. I know some of the professors at the local community college are involved with a Santa Barbara peace group called Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. I'm trying to get some background information on them - I read their material and it is very anti-Bush and very pro-U.N. As stated on their website "The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation is a non-profit, non-partisan international education and advocacy organization....

    We had a very, very successful day at Santa Barbara City College with our counter display against the "Iraq Memorial" put together by the commie group Veterans for Peace. The "Iraq Memorial" is also called "Arlington West" and is 1,000 small wooden crosses stuck in the ground with the names of the American soldiers that have lost their lives so far in the war. Nice sentiment but too bad the Veterans for Peace feel that it is necessary to use this platform to push their anti-war, anti-American agenda. There are lots of informational posters put up that talk about the...

    Peace coalition protests war 50-60 people at Government Center mourn deaths of over 1,000 soldiers As the sun set Friday over a busy thoroughfare near the Ventura County Government Center, people stood on a corner, waving banners for peace and flashing peace signs at passing motorists. The Plaza Park Coalition sponsored the peace vigil, attracting 50 to 60 people, old and young alike, to show support for peace and mourn the deaths of more than 1,000 U.S. soldiers in Iraq. "We don't want a war," said Roman Becerra of Ventura. "It's just wrong, and we are already angry." According to...

    We had a great turnout in Ventura today! There were 50 to 70 people at our rally, the local paper was there and our rally was the school project for a local photographic institute so tons of pictures were taken. Thousands of cars drove by at this busy intersection so we had tons of drive-by support. PacPam and Mr. Pacpam were there as well as Moonmad27, Ben Lurkin and Mrs. Ben Lurkin. I handed out lots of FreeRepublic business cards to potential new freepers(I ordered the cards from an on-line business card service - they are very cheap, look great...

    Veterans try to resurrect divisiveness of the '60s When a president takes this nation to war -- and make no mistake, while the Constitution gives Congress the authority to declare war, it is the president as commander in chief who decides and gives the order to go to war -- he had better have his facts right, his justifications airtight and his moral compass above reproach. If not, people die needlessly and the president breaks faith with his oath of office. Forty years ago today, President Johnson signed the Gulf of Tonkin resolution, which handed him unprecedented power "to take...

    I know DoughtyOne has a ton of stuff to put up regarding our trip but the natives are restless and all of us want to share our incredible experiences and pictures! There are so many FReepers to thank for making the day such a success. We probably had 50 to 60 FReepers and friends at our peak. I'd like to start off with thanking Hi Heels for putting together breakfast at Marie Callenders and especially the beautiful graveside memorial for President Reagan. Hi Heels had a P.A. system that she brought in; a beautiful printed program; and an incredible service....

    So far we have about 35 Freepers that have expressed an interest in the Reagan Library Road Trip and BarBQue scheduled for August 1st. The plan is we will meet for a late breakfast (8:30am) somewhere in Simi Valley (location TBA); head over to the Library for a special tour right when it opens up and then a BarBQue over at Rabid Dog's house in the afternoon. I think we should all make sure we have a FreeRepublic.com sign on our car that is very visible because we are going to be taking up a lot of room both at...

    Just got back from seeing Reagan's motorcade leaving Pt. Mugu and getting on the freeway. I think thousands of people must have turned out. The road was lined with people for a stretch of over 8 miles. I was on the exit onto the freeway. There were at least 600 people along the exit alone. The motorcade is heading south on 101 and evidently every overpass has people on it waving flags. can't wait to hear from the other FReepers!!!

    Thoughts on building FReeper Membership and Chapter Formation. I’m posting this message to all the locale boards as well as on the main board. I am a chapter leader for Ventura County, Southern California. I am also heavily involved in the Bush Team “grassroots” for our county. I am meeting a plethora of people that want to get politically and conservatively active but don’t have a clue how to go about it. The first thing I do is tell them to get on-line with FreeRepublic. It is a natural fit for potential new freepers. I’d like to suggest the following:...

    This mini-rally is taking place in Camarillo, Ventura County. If it is as successful as I think it might be, we will try it in other cities for the rest of the summer. We are meeting at Crestview Park tomorrow (Saturday) at 4:30 pm for Voter Registration and a Bush-Cheney rally. Timing coincides with the evening service at the Catholic Church across the street. We figured we can have a positive greeting for the parishioners leaving the service so that they can ponder who they really want to vote for - Bush or the psuedo-Catholic. The Catholic vote is a...

    I was just sent this e-mail from a friend and to be honest my brain isn't working real well today. I'm hoping that some freepers can help out here. My union, Communication Workers of America, is really heavily in support of Kerry, and following labor tradition to push for Democrats. I have tried to point out that Kerry hasn't had a real job since, well, I'm not sure he ever had a "real" job. Living off rich wives and the public payroll isn't a real job. Plus, I have noted that the Dems have done nothing to keep jobs in...

    The American Prospect ^ | 2/1/03 | Chris Mooney
    Today, Zogby International's polling reputation may be second only to that of the hallowed Gallup Organization, which makes having a Zogby Poll extremely desirable for advocacy groups across the political spectrum. Zogby describes his personal political history as "very left Democrat." His brother James, head of the Arab American Institute, was an adviser to Al Gore's presidential campaign. Yet 1996 helped establish John Zogby as a favorite pollster with the political right. This crossover potential has allowed him to work for groups from the Club for Growth to the National Environmental Trust while still being labeled objective by the media.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, with little cash on hand to close a $14-billion budget shortfall, reiterated Tuesday his opposition to new taxes but said it might be "wishful thinking."

I was particularly pleased that the reporter made note that the “peace” rally was organized by a number...

    At just 20 years old, Bryan Kelley has seen the difference American troops made in Iraq. The blue-eyed, baby-faced Ventura native went from basic training to war, returning last week from 10 months in the Middle East. So as Kelley, a member of the Army's 101st Air Assault Division, marched down Main Street on Saturday with his girlfriend on one hand and an American flag in the other, he told of soldiers reconstructing war-torn buildings. He described how faces of Iraqi children beamed when Army chaplains gave out candy. As the march in which Kelley took part, Americans For Iraqi...

Freepers included PacPam, BenLurkin, MoonMad27 and RicJef(sp). We had a number of soldiers that had just come back from Iraq and they received a very warm thank you and welcome. Its a darn good thing we were there because the "peace" group was quite large - maybe 100 to 200 people. You could tell that a number of them were not from around Ventura County. Anyway we marched down to...

    Excerpted the first four paragraphs. WASHINGTON -- Get your tickets to the U.S. Senate! A 30-hour marathon debate starts Wednesday and will go straight through to Friday.

Tomorrow I am entering Freeper Detox...
