You can join Patriot Guard Riders for free.

You can help out, or not, you can give donations if you want. I've been a member about three years, I get notified of events in my area. You don't even have to have or ride a motorcycle.

The Main Web Site is at: Patriot Guard Riders Home

I know there are some bad apples out there in the world, but I wouldn't pass judgment on an entire church's congregation just because of the opinions of a few protesters who, for all we know, have too much time on their hands. Did they really say they even go to such a church??



That's the downside of our precious First Amendment, when stuff like this happens.
They're from Topeka Kansas and yes they do exist, Case44.

I hope they show up here in my little part of the country. I know a few fellas in the Legions, VFW, AmVets and the Nam-Vets MC that'll be proud to show all of them what Pavement taste like, to include their idiot wives and children.

I got a big kick out of the video that showed a ticked off passer-by tossing a Big Gulp out a moving car passenger window and clobbering one of their kids that was protesting with them upside the head. I laughed so hard, I almost fell out of my chair.

You know the only problem with this idea is that the wbc would knock you down just to get you out of the way . these people are hate mongers nothing short of it and like I said I have a feeling that God has his way of dealing with them .

Sorry, but definitely NOT going to happen , the only time I put on a COSTUME is at Halloween parties.

I think the Patriot Guard Riders have the best way to deal with them, and that's to fire up their bikes and rev the motors to drown them out. And doing all of this at a good safe distance so that the families of the fallen don't hear any of it, "Unless their loved one was into Harley's".

This site is primarily a relocation site, helping those who have questions relating to moving to other locations.

Here are pertinent portions of the Terms of Service's which you all have agreed to when you registered:

http://www.city-data.com/forumtos.html

Welcome!

This forum is strictly moderated.


The Moderators and Administrators have final say in what is or is not appropriate.

Be civil, no personal attacks, flaming, or insults. We may attack ideas (politely) but we do not attack the speaker of the idea. Be careful with your words, there is a point where being direct crosses a line into blunt, in-your-face hostility. Please, report bad posts instead of engaging in flame wars on the boards. Insulting another member or a moderator will not be tolerated anywhere on this website. This includes Direct Messages and Reputation Comments.

If you disagree with something, say so, but explain WHY.

Stay on topic. Attempts to hi-jack threads by switching topics or going off topic will be deleted and infractions issued. This is not a chat room - when people hi-jack threads by posting messages that are of interest to only few people, the threads often stop being useful discussions of initial topics.

Hate speech, racism or bashing of ANY sort will NOT be tolerated. Rude posts will be removed and infractions issued. Do not quote or talk to trolls or your posts will also be deleted. Use the report feature instead.

"Trolling" is prohibited.

Pouncing on someone you disagree with runs contrary to the spirit of this board and its members. We are here to help each other.

All posts unrelated to local matters will be deleted or moved. Threads dealing with controversial topics that often degenerate into flame wars, such as politics or religion, may be moved, closed, or deleted by moderators at their discretion without any warning to the participants.


Discussing moderator actions (deleting/moving/editing threads or posts) is not allowed in the public forums.


Enjoy the forums!
If you can not participate in this topic without hate speech, threats or bashing of ANY sort, etc, you post will most likely be deleted.


Thanks in advance for your cooperation.


Rich

They won't. They are very well aware of the laws- well enough to know that if they knock you down, they will go straight to jail.

Not a big fan of the Patriot Guard Riders- comes across as a bit trashy to me honestly. You might not like the "Halloween costume" but I think it's putting on a much better face than a bunch of bikers.

Angry WBC will burn one day!!!

Most of the biker that I know are professional types, lawyers, bankers, business owners, and yes truck drivers, construction workers and so on. Frankly I'd trust a Bike far faster than I would any Preacher or anyone in the ministry. Most of them are hiding behind their religion and are two faced about it. At Least with a Biker you know were you stand and most of them are the ones who went to fight in a war and not hide behind a book. Don't tread on them and they won't show you what asphalt tastes like.

I'd like to see a 18 wheeler loose control and run over the whole batch of them, "Now that would be entertainment".

To each his own - I too would prefer the Patriot Guard riders. Not all bikers are like the guys from "sons of anarchy"

Now I don't know about you folks, but if they show up in my neck of the wood, they're going to learn what pavement tastes like, male or female. They're carrying signs like "God made IED's to kill soldiers" and "We're glad you son or daughter is dead", plus a few others I won't say in respect of good friends here on CDF.

I have an address for these scum-bags if you want it I will post it, but only if CDF allows me to.
They're not jerks. A jerk is the guy who cuts you off on the road or doesn't hold a door or takes forever at the ATM.
These people are mentally ill. Protesting at soldiers funerals shows a level of sadism that fortunately is rare in our society.
