4. Would like to
but I cannot make it.

Cheney did go to East Grand Forks during the election and snubbed Grand Forks.

Notice WHERE he is going. All mostly "red" states with Democatic Senators up for reelection in 2006.

5. I wish I could get there
because it seems like everytime I go there the temperature drops to 50 below. I would like to see the Imperial Chimpiness freeze his a** off. They can always give him a snazzy outfit like Chaney wore at Aushwitz this week, he does love to play dress up.

8. Do you have the time and place?
I might be able to go if I can work around a couple things. I'm in St. Paul. Anyone want to carpool?

Also, where can you order those "Worst President Ever" signs?
I like those a lot.

President to visit North Dakota to push Social Security plan
Associated Press

FARGO, N.D. - President Bush will visit this city next Thursday push his Social Security plan.

White House spokesman Jim Morrell said an exact time and location for the Fargo visit should be released on Tuesday.

Morrell said Fargo will be the first among several stops the president will make after his State of the Union speech Wednesday.

Aides to Bush have said he plans to travel to North Dakota and three other states to push his Social Security plan and lobby Democratic senators, including Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D.

Bush last visited North Dakota in 2001, to push his tax cut proposal.

--that's about it--

11. yeah it's funny, they can't find a place to put him
Edited on Sun Jan-30-05 12:01 PM by KyndCulture
We got monster trucks in the FargoDome and a Play in the Civic center... hahaha.

They'll tell us Tuesday where he will be, I'm betting at NDSU.... Kerry was also there. Plenty of free street corners to stand on.

12. As Dick Nixon said:
"...when the President of the United States cannot travel abroad or to any major city at home without fear of a hostile demonstration - then it's time for new leadership for the United States of America."
-- Richard Nixon, 1968

13. Details of Fargo, N.D. anti-Bush rally
This is from the NDDemocrats Group list:


Ok here are the details of the Anti-Bush rally. Bush will be
speaking at 11:45 at the Bison Sports Arena on the campus of NDSU.
NATIONAL media will be present, and I think its important for his
first Social Security overhaul push (in Frago) to have lots of
protesters!

Annie Krapu and I have been working with the North Dakota
Progressive Coalition and other groups around ND to set this up.
Here are the details

Meet at 9 AM, at the Federal building downtown Fargo, on Thursday,
as we will get National Media and local media, and than walk up to
the campus of NDSU, which is 10 blocks. If you can not march with
everyone, it is ok, we want a strong showing at the Federal Building.
