Can you tell who’s who?? Which side is which?
Some of you may recognize faces in the last two photos. The second to last photo is our buddy Bryan* (apologies again for no archives at the moment) who had his windshield bashed in by an angry socialist last August. The last photo is a dear friend of the very radical Left. You know, the guy they want to see back in power.
Is it just me, or does anyone else miss the good old days when radical was a really cool surfing term? Yeah, yeah…I know, it’s always been used politically. I guess what I’m trying to say is: I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then. “Ignorance is bliss” and all that.
The rest of the photos will be uploaded to my
temporary gallery eventually.
I would like to thank everyone who came out to join us in REALLY supporting the troops and democracy. I met many wonderful people and am very grateful for all their help. I especially appreciated all the gentle care and concern from my friends as they checked on me and my rotten back throughout the day. (Yes, I should have listened to you and taken more breaks, but honestly, I didn’t think I’d be able to get up again if I sat down. No worries! I tested the limits and discovered exactly what they are.)
Folks who came out to the rally:
Alan, Brendan, Chap, Dan, Darleen, Joe, and many others. If you were there and have a website, please let me know and I’ll add you to the list. I would also like to add that some of our signs were created by a Chicago Dem who believes that our troops need our support. Greg was very helpful and his help on the signs meant that my back was spared that day.
* For those who don’t know, Bryan is a gentleman who showed up at a counter-protest last year and ended up having his car attacked by an angry young man. Bryan is an animated guy…and, while he’s interesting to watch, he’s not someone we see regularly. In fact, none of us have seen him since that episode last year. This time around, he showed up in a suit and claimed to be running for congress. I wish I could answer all the questions you have emailed me, but the fact is, I really don’t know much more about him. This is only the second time I’ve run into him and can’t offer up anything else. Since he’s not a member of our group, I don’t see him at any of our other events. Sorry I can’t provide you with more than that.
