    I KNOW WHY AMERICA IS GREAT-THE MINUTEMAN PROJECT

    Moderator edit to move from FR section: AuntB asked me to move her post to this section. According to Aunt B, her commentary was first posted on FR but she doesn't know it's current status. To pull or not to pull? She says her comments have also been posted on a blog but she doesn't have the URL. Rather than posting those negative commentaries from the news media pundits, we can just turn to our "resident" commentator, AuntB!

    -I KNOW WHY AMERICA IS GREAT- THE MINUTEMAN PROJECT ... by AuntB

    April 4, 2005 - Tombstone, Arizona

    Terry Anderson was on fire last night on his weekly radio show (KDWN, Las Vegas, LA- www.theterryandersonshow.com ) with reports from participants in the MinuteManProject in Tombstone, Arizona.

    First Mark Edwards, host of Wake Up America ( www.wakeupamericafoundation.com ) had just returned to Las Vegas saying that all was quiet except the protesters protesting the minutemen. As Terry Anderson said, “They’re against ANYTHING we want to do, but have nothing to offer [to solve the problem of illegal immigration,] “

    It seems human smuggling and crossings have greatly decreased from this most often infiltrated part of the border. (The MMP has proven what they set out to --- guarding the border will keep the crossings down!) Unfortunately these illegals will enter at unprotected points now.


    Edwards also stated there was a 2 hour press conference Sunday with Jim Gilchrest, Congressman Tom Tancredo (wearing a MMP hat and “undocumented border patrol� T-shirt) and others and that the journalists actually asked good, intelligent questions. I have witnessed this phenomenon among reporters when they actually see a situation first hand rather than their own prejudices in the visions of their mind.

    Luca Zanna ( http://www.unitedstates.fm/ ) was also in Tombstone over the weekend with several hundred patriotic Americans to show his support for the MMP. Luca, a recent immigrant with only a few days left until full USA citizenship, called Terry to report on the activities. I will end this with the email, with his permission, that I received from him this morning. Get a kleenex!

    I wanted to let you know that I' am just back from 3 days in the Arizona
    border with the Minute man project... the most beautiful and heart breaking
    experience I've ever had in my life... I've had to hold my tears when I saw
    the sacrifice and the determination of the american people that have joined
    this historical event: seniors men and women, young kids, invalid on the
    wheelchair... average joe and jane from every state... normal people that
    sacrificing their time and money, with extreme love and determination came to Tombstone to protest to keep America safe! I've seen them under the sun of the Arizona desert, and in the dark of the nights, risking their lives and leaving their homes and comfortable habits to make a stand... !!!

    I know why America is great... it is not just because of the financial and
    industrial strength, not because of going to Mars of to the moon... it is
    because of the American people and their determination to fight for their
    rights... and the Constitution is our tool that will permit us to find the
    answers... this weekend I've seen the Constitution and the bill of rights in
    real action...

    I am so proud to have been there with my fellows Americans... it has been
    the most beautiful experience I've ever had

    PS
    I've have received in the mail from Homeland security the date of my
    official oath 29th of April...
    I will send you a photo

    ciao

    Luca

    -I KNOW WHY AMERICA IS GREAT- THE MINUTEMAN PROJECT

    Watchman, or some moderator, should this be in the "News stories" section? Is there something I'm not doing when posting to put it in a particular area?

    Thanks!

    Perhaps the opposition would feel better if the MMP folks were referred to as "undocumented Border Patrol agents."

    Luca Zanna

    Sadly, I can remember, NOT SO LONG AGO, when this type of immigrant was the NORM.

    Mr. Zanna is a blessing to this country.

    The article was e-mailed to me by a good friend.....

    Glad to hear that Luca is a Freeper.

    I've been told it's a good sign.

    Thanks for the ping---finally Fox News is starting to report about this---I hope they get great publicity and Bush finally apologizes to them for calling them vigilantes.

    Please remember, everyone (you know this already, because the thought came originally from Theodore Roosevelt), Mr. Zanna is NOT "Italian-American." He is an "American of Italian descent."

    But the bottom line is that in 25 days he's going to be an American! And we're damned glad to have him. I met him and he's the nicest guy you'll ever meet. His exuberant enthusiasm for America, our Constitution, and our individual rights is refreshing and you can't help but get a silly smile on your face seeing it. As he nears his citizenship date, he's like a kid on Christmas morning opening his presents.

    What has happened over there? It is getting worse an worse.

    Any one who cannot, or will not allow an article by these fine men an women has a screw loose somewhere.

    I am like you, too old to be able to go down to Arizona, but do I ever wish I could.

    These fine gals an guys need every bit of praise we can shower on them they are the best, an good luck to each of them.

    Hey, just look at what happened Monday and Tuesday. The nation wanted MMP info and they came here instead of FR. That's great! Let them come where they are appreciated. Did you see all of the new sign ups?
