    ~ Memorial Thread ~ FReeper redrock has gone Home ~~ October 6, 2010 ~ FReeper redrock is a Vietnam Veteran, an Army Medic. Rest in Peace, Mike. Abide With Me Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide. When other helpers fail and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me. Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou who changest not, abide with me. Not a brief glance I beg, a...

    A Tribute to my friend Jeff Head, Free Republic’s Eagle Award-FREEPER OF THE YEAR It had only been a few minutes earlier that I hugged blackie, Barb, GrandmaC, redrock and his precious family and headed north out of the narrow canyon, glancing in the rear view mirror at the tiny community of Jarbidge, Nevada. The sun was low in the west, bouncing glistening sparks off the tips of junipers and the winding creek that the narrow dirt road followed. It had been a long three days, my car, gear and my body was covered with a quarter inch of Nevada...

    I was there today in Saginaw, Texas to meet the Klamath Falls convoy to the Sawgrass Rebellion. Rocky (Issaquahking), Bill Ramson and others whom I had come to know last year in Klamath Falls, Oregon were there with the convoy. There was a great parade. I rode with the bucket (from Klamath Bucket Brigade) for a while and the shovel (from Jarbidge Shovel Brigade) for a while, but mostly walked along side engaging the people watching the parade and asking them to come to the fair to hear the speeches or look up the events on the internet (Klamath Falls...

    The Why of the Sawgrass Rebellion It's on the eastern border of the Everglades, down on the southern tip of Florida, Miami-Dade County. For decades bungling and sometimes viciously renegade officialdom has called it "The 8.5 Square Mile Area". Resident Madeleine Fortin calls it "Pariah". On October 19, Real Americans are going there to do something about it. It's called The Sawgrass Rebellion. In the delivered-under-oath words of another "Pariah" resident, Ibel Aguilera, this is why: TESTIMONY OF MRS. IBEL AGUILERA RESIDENT OF THE 8.5 SQUARE MILE AREA AND DIRECTOR UNITED PROPERTY OWNERS AND FRIENDS OF THE 8.5 SMA,...
