Take Back the Corner 2

On a beautiful sunny day here in Tucson we gathered for Take Back the Corner 2. In front of the main gate of Davis-Monthan AFB our small but enthuisiastic group showed it support for our Troops.

The show of appreciation and support from the base and passer-bys ran about 999 to 1. A grumpy old man in a car said "Go Away". The other 999 were positive with shouts, waves, thumbs up, and honking. It was a very positive and moving way to thank those on the front lines of the War On Terror.

We will continue to "Take Back the Corner" and I will post about upcoming dates and times. In attendance were Dennis from Protest Warrior, Scott from Speed of Thought, and Mike from Flight Pundit all the way from Phoenix. A great start on an event we hope to grow in size and scope.

I am looking forward to the Take Back the Corner 3 and hope Tucson Bloggers, friends, families, and all Americans join us in this fun and rewarding way to say Thanks to all of our troops.

I'm so ashamed of myself for not showing up. I had a hard time cleaning litter boxes (actually the newspapers for when they decide not to use the boxes) this morning. To get rid of the itchy eyes, I took Benadryl and a nap. Maybe next time.

It was an honor and privelage to stand with you today on this corner in support of our troops.

The biggest thing I think this proves, and I can not say it enough, is that if the Liberal Media is to be believed, we should have been booed off of that corner yesterday, but we werent.

The liberal media continues to only give press to that which suits their agenda. I will be sending out more press releases as time goes on, someone will pay attention to us.

Linda said it best...we have momentum, lets keep it going!!

Thank you again for your support and dedication to the troops of the United States Armed Forces. You are a great american.

It was a great pleasure to meet all of you.
I am glad we were able to say thanks to the service members that came by while we were there.
It is these sheepdogs that protect us.

Mayhaps in the future. After showing my house to a skeptical appraiser, I spent the rest of the day getting a touch of heat exhaustion while on my roof changing cooler pads and repairing the unit.


I had hoped to at least break free to zip by the corner on my scooter and honk or something.

Yay! I love seeing fellow PWs (or anyone for that matter) giving thanks to our troops and providing a positive message to the community at large.
