A Bucks County couple had the honor of
Gold Star Mom, Cindy Sheehan, to George Dubya's
ranch in Crawford, Texas.
Bill and Terry Perry were
attending the 20th Annual
Peace convention was addressed by
Cindy Sheehan, mom of KIA Casey Sheehan, on Friday
nite, Aug 5.
Cindy made it quite clear
that she was ready to camp
out at Crawford until she got some answers from
Bush on why Bush killed her son.

Our caravan included the
VFP IMPEACHMENT TOUR BUS,
and a dozen other vehicles.
We crossed the Crawford RR
tracks, went thru the only light
in town ( a flashing Red light ), then drove
another 3.5 miles
into the countryside, on Prairie
Chapel Road. Fans of the
Patriot Act should note that after
passing the Tonk Creek,
then the North Tonk Creek, we passed the Bluff Creek, then
Old Buelah Rd.
There is a Gummint Motor
Pool on the North side, w/ lotsa

A few hundred yards further
up North Prairie Rd., @ the
"tee" of County Route 450-A, which seems to be a
area for Secret Service, Texas Rangers, and the
Sheriff Dep't., they've paved an equilateral
to impede "outsider" traffic.
We were told we had to
dismount our vehicles, and walk
the final mile. It was 98 degrees on
Saturday, and trees
are few and far between. Cindy and her

Rangers made their

wooden fence that the Gummint

sons who have been "stop lossed" back to Iraq a
time, and he hates his neighbor, the Prez.
He said Cindy and her
sister, DeDe, and others could camp
on his property. About
50 of us hugged Cindy, and went the
110 miles back to
Dallas. About 10 stayed to pitch tents, and
set up a support system.
We went back to our
Convention, and syndicated radio
personality & author Jim Hightower ( picture

all the initial action. Seems they didn't
even want to have their
camera crews cover us, 'cuz it "might
jeopardize our access"
Agency France-Press, and
Rueters got the story, and
"Indy-Media" sold their limited film & stills
to the Big Boys.
We did this without any media
heads up , because we'd
never have gotten as far as we did if we had
contacted the networks.
The Texas Rangers, and the
Sheriff's Deputies were
visibly moved by our chants of "Bush killed her
killed her son", but the Secret Service had heard
it all before.
The story is ongoing, and
my wife & I just drove the 1,700
miles back home ( we got in @ 6pm, Tues, and it's
now.) Here's some background...

ANTI-WAR ACTIVISTS OF ALL STRIPES ARE WELCOME.
If you don't see the value
of this historic moment, with
Gold Star moms explaining that it's racist,
who think that Harvard, Yale, and Princeton
can't put Iraq together again w/o U.S. help, then
to register REPUBLICAN, OR DLC, with the rest of
arrogant, elitists who want to "STAY THE COURSE"
Oooops, sorry 'bout the
rant. Been with so many lefties
lately, the truth just spills out.
I gotta tell ya, it was
mighty encouraging to pick up the
newspapers on the way back home. When you see
coverage in the Shreeveport, Louisianna Times,
Jackson, Mississippi Clarion-Ledger, and
in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina, ya know ya
a lotta peeps with the RIGHT message.
