    Patriotic supporters of the Second Amendment will be staging rallies across the nation on Saturday as the push to strip law-abiding Americans of their right to bear arms has never been more relentless nor the threat more perilous than it is now. The group calling for the rallies at state capitals is called National Constitutional Coalition of Patriotic Americans (NCCPA) and they want to stress the urgency of having the voices of pro-constitutional patriots to have their voices heard instead of being drowned out by the anti-gun lobby, the activist media and hypocritical celebrities who have used their money, names,...

    Pro-life students should walk out of class and stand outside praying for 54 minutes. One minute per each million of their fellow children who have been aborted. Make #54milliontoo their hashtag. They now have EVERY much a right to walk out as the useful idiots yesterday. Regardless of whether or not the school faculties give them their blessing. If the students aren't allowed to, take the school board to court on grounds of violating equal access of public facilities.

    One Fort Worth ^ | 03/08/18 | fwdude
    For any motivated Freepers in Fort Worth, TX, there is a leftist continent in the city government called "Task Force For Race and Culture" which is an innocuous-sounding name for Cultural Marxism. A town hall tonight will solicit citizen input into issues of the "extent [which] Fort Worth residents experience disparities – in criminal justice, economic development, education, health, housing, and transportation – that are attributable to race and culture?" This is code for race baiting and homoFascism. Anyone interested in joining me, the meeting will be at Tarrant County College-South Campus at 6:30 pm.

    TCMS tradition was broken last year for two very good reasons. That, by default, started a new tradition ~ holding the shoot in the same location! I only fought a little bit to go back to original idea of not going to the same range in consecutive years. The wise ole planning committee feels that the TCMS has found its home. The TXMS VIII shoot will be held at Hicksville Gun Range, in Gatesville, TX on October 6th, starting at 10:00 a.m. Where once again we can enjoy the range dogs, the owners and lunch provided by our own cook,...

Paul’s involvement in the rally will be his latest show of support for Ward, who has also been recognized by President Donald Trump on Twitter.

    I have an important announcement of interest to long-time FReepers: FReeper GladesGuru, ecologist, and private property advocate, has died from complications due to prostate cancer. He was 75. Jan (pronounced “Yan”) Jacobson was a man of acerbic wit who could cut to the bottom line with a merciless precision. Pity the bureaucrat or academic peddling questionable “facts” under his scrutiny. His passion was wildlife biology and its relation to habitat. For over thirty years, he was Director of the Everglades Institute, a private parcel within the Big Cypress National Preserve, immediately adjacent to Everglades National Park. The parcel is unusual...
