Passing this on...
Hi! Received this from a very good friend in PA.
she wants everyone to know what she saw.
Good Tuesday morning! John Kerry brought his "front porch meeting" to
our Canonsburg, PA neighborhood on Labor Day morning. Since you will
hear the truth from the TV or print media I thought that you should know
from someone who was `almost' there.
The residents who live on the street where the event took place were not
allowed to attend.
Kerry shipped in approximately 90 invitation only VIPs. In addition,
there was a hard luck case who was about to lose her job at USAIR and
another was an elderly woman who was having health care problems. Neither
one was from this neighborhood. The street was closed to all traffic the
night before and all residents on the street were REQUIRED to remove their
The sympathetic police officers on duty told us that Kerry used eminent
domain to claim the street for his purposes. Residents who have homes
within the perimeter (approximately 1 full block) were kept behind a line
away from the partisan crowd. The rest of us were not allowed within the
block cordon. A neighbor from across the street came to the line where we
were being kept and asked us to come onto his property. The police told
that we could stand on this man's FORMERLY private property! This was set

rude. Even though most of the media was there to record our stories of
being included in the neighborhood forum, not one of them printed or
the truth. This is what America will look like if Kerry becomes
Get registered and get all of your friends registered to vote if they
have not already. Kerry thinks that he is better than the rest of us and
he has the media on his side to make him out to be what he is not!
Finally, last night as I drove down the street where the rally was, I was
shocked to see Bush/Cheney signs in almost every yard on the street!
Please send this e-mail on to as many people as you can.
LET FREEDOM RING
What utter, complete bullshit. To pull something like that is enough to make me wanna %$#%. Oh never mind. I better not say it.
I call on this... but I'm leary of doing so, as much as I hate skerry....
there'd be a few dead people who try and remove anything from my property.
anyone got any other "proof" this happend like this ?
I have to call BS on this as well.
I don't believe that any court would allow a government official to claim eminant domain for a campaign speech. It's possible the campaign went up and told these people to remove their signs and they did so bitching under their breath and not standing up for themselves
