Gathering of Eagles: We Won't Forget

Long Trip Alone

Eagles Up

The LINES are drawn.

The Eagles will defend the rights of those protesting the war. That is what we veterans do: Defend the Constitution.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The Eagles will defend our memorials from vandals: "the right of the people to peaceably assemble" does not include damaging property or injuring people.

Here's to a PEACEFUL and POLITE

Move America Forward Caravan in Atlanta

The Move America Forward Caravan was in Atlanta this morning and I was one of about one hundred folks who attended their rally in front of the CNN Building.
The Caravan is underway to join the Gathering of Eagles in Washington DC on Saturday March 17th to stand guard over our memorials.

The scene at 7:30 am, rally scheduled to start at 8 am.

The media was there. THANK YOU.

A cute kid was there, waving her flag in and around the Patriot Riders.

Bill Greene, a candidate for the the open Congressional seat of the late Charlie Norwood, was there. I hope he wins the special election on June 19th.

The media was there, but there are no stories online about this event.

I was hoping to see more people there. But I am glad that there are 100 folks who did show.

Surrender is not an option.
Victory can and will be achieved,
if the American People stay strong.

The choice is clear,
defeat the Islamic Mass-Murdering Terrorists over there
or fight them in the streets of America.

Greatest Outfield Play - Ever

REPOSTED as a Reminder to the EAGLES of how to deal with anti-American protestors:

Thanks, Michelle , for reminding me of this fantastic play by Rick Monday.

Rick Monday, a former Marine, playing for the Chicago Cubs in
Dodger Stadium, saved the American Flag from being burned by a couple of college guys.

Yes, on April 25, 1976, in Dodger Stadium, received a standing "O" for saving the flag.

correction: from Captain Ed:

However, when Monday took off with the flag, all of the cynicism and defeatism of the past two years melted away. Watching Monday rescue the flag from two lunatics who tried to hijack a baseball game for their protest, which would have provided the perfect nadir of American morale at that time, the crowd did something no one expected. Lasorda recalled in his book that starting softly, the crowd started singing "God Bless America", completely unprompted, until all of the tens of thousands of Dodger fans had joined together to sing it. It was one of the few unscripted and spontaneous patriotic displays in our Bicentennial, and one of the most moving at any time.

8 US Attorneys Fired

According to reports, The White House Counsel (Harriet Miers) wanted all 93 US Attorneys replaced.

The Attorney General only fired 8.

The Attorney General should be praised for not removing the other 85 US Attorneys.

President Bush complained about the failure of US Attorneys to stop voter fraud.
Once again, Democrats and the MSM want to enable voter fraud.

By the way, Bill Clinton replace ALL 93 US Attorneys when he took office. But of course, we can not question the actions of a Democrat.

US Attorneys are appointed by the President, confirmed by the Senate. The Patriot Act has increased the time a US Attorney may served without confirmation by the Senate.

JFK Quotes

"Now the trumpet summons us again—not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need—not as a call to battle, though embattled we are—but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation"—a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty and war itself."

"The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission."

Kennedy, John F. 35th President of the United States

Too bad that the Democrats have forgotten that they once stood for freedom and were not the enablers of tyranny, terrorism, and chaos
