    By this time last year, I was finalizing my plans for the Freeper convention/TEA Party protest/9-11 observance; we talked about doing it again this year but I've not seen anything on FR about it. Are we on for this September? Do they need a project coordinator? Is it too early to plan it? Inquiring minds want to know...

    It has been suggested before so I will refresh the minds of fellow Patriots of what to wear on 9/12 in Washington, DC: an empty holster, but with the Constitution and/or Declaration of Independence inside (print one off if you haven't got a "pocket" version). Imagine the knee-jerk reaction of MSM journalists and Beltway pundits to see hordes of would-be Militia members and assorted Astroturfers decending upon DC wearing what appear to be... gun holsters! Only to find out upon closer look that they're empty. What are these Right Wing nutjobs trying to say? Are they hiding their guns (Sandy...

    DC Convention Organizing Committee ^ | August 7, 2009 | Brytani
    <p>After months of planning, FR's DC Convention is coming together.</p> <p>Help make history, join in Free Republic's return to DC as a national group and help to herald in another wave of conservative activism Free Republic is famous for!</p> <p>“Reagan is good for business” was Andrew’s introduction to politics. “I was real little, but that’s what my dad used to say.” Andrew Wilkow began his radio career at the college radio station. Conservative leaning politics were always his heart and he expressed his views on the air regularly, much to the anger of his co-workers. “I was basically just anti-P.C. at first.” He broke out of music radio in 2002 when he was given a trial/fill-in slot for Mark Levin on his hometown station, WABC in NYC. “That was huge and that’s when I first met Sean Hannity.” Soon after that he earned a weekend slot then a full time job at an upstate station. I basically did a 300 mile roundtrip every weekend for over 3 years to do both shows. Wilkow’s move to SIRIUS brings his new sound of conservative talk radio to a national audience.

    Ladies, What are we wearing to the Freeper Convention? Is the banquet formal? Business Casual? Casual? Clothing Optional? (just kidding!) Since we will be in the same city as the 'Fashion Icon' we'll need to put our best foot (or arms as the case may be) forward! What say you?
