    I've researched the Westboro "Church". They're not really a church at all. Their leader/pastor is a disbarred attorney. They're a SCAM! They're only purpose is to "protest" at funerals etc...where they hope they'll be assaulted. I repeat, their GOAL is to be assaulted, so that they may then sue the town, or church, or family that they're protesting. Their sole income comes from these lawsuits...They're not christians, they're LAWYERS!!! If you notice all of their signs are sturdily built, and their rule is to only spend about 30 minutes to one hour at any one event. If they're not assaulted, they quickly pack up and move to their next target. For example, here in Tulsa they protested at the largest, wealthiest Methodist church in our city. They were studiously ignored, they then quickly drove to the largest, richest Baptist church in town for their next big lawsuit. I'm not condoning anything, but in some towns their tires mysteriously deflate...and every garage refuses them service...just a thought.

    Always enjoyed the Aggies I ran into during active duty days.

    As for the WBC.... 'Wackjobs Betting on Confrontation' = equals their business model. They want a violent confrontation so that they can sue you.

    We got the PGR ramped up in this state, before the ALR was even chartered to deal with them, and to honor Heros coming home (alive and .... well).

    It's amazing to me that Phelps and his inbred clan of 30 - 50 (of 3 generations) are still at it. You actually don't hear nearly as much about them as back in '05 to '07. Guess those regressive imbred genes are starting to kick in.

    Interesting thought. The head woman/wife was on a talk show and she admitted she also is a lawyer.

    Provocateurs out for Law suits. Do you know of any law suits they have collected on?

    Just to clarify, it's the 12th man. You can read more about the tradition here. There are many traditions such as the 12th man at Texas A&M that bring the student body closer. I believe the campus is now over 40K students, and it is the traditions that bring that body closer to act as one especially at a time of need. Other traditions to offer respect to Aggies that have passed away are Silver Taps (monthly) and Aggie Muester (annually). Each year at Aggie Muester there is a roll call of all Aggies that have passed away during the year. Someone answers for the fallen Aggie during the roll call that happens in multiple cities across the country.

    Of other significance to the story, after the military academies, Texas A&M produces the most commissioned offers for the military. So, A&M has had a long history of producing those that serve our country. What was witnessed in the story is another case of offering respect to Lt. Col. Roy Tisdale for his service to our country and the sacrifices he made over his career that ended in such a tragic accident.

    I'm not trying to be a rolling commercial, but I thought it would be interesting for others to understand some of the backstory and just why so many would come to form a protective wall around the fallen soldier.

    Thank you Sir, you bit on the bait.

    Yeah, through the stuper, I knew it was 12, but calling A&M 'one man short' was just too good to pass up.... LOL

    Good show, glad there are people in this country that will stand up and shelter the families from the hatred of these maniacs, and allow them to honor the fallen and loved in peace. RIP LTC.

    Kudos to the people for standing up for others.

    Those Westboro wackos seem really out there, hating everything under the sun. Apparently, their 40-plus group is mostly the extended family of the head. They don't appear to hate inbreeding, which can be a real booger if unchecked.

    Westboro Church and its members is/are is the biggest bunch of clowns I have ever heard tell of.

    I notice that they always tend to show up at places they are most likely NOT going to receive an escort to the city limit sign with a "Y'all don't come back now, ya hear?!".

    And I do sometimes wish they could experience life in a country where the soldiers are not protecting the citizens, but oppressing them, and see how much they like that.

    Our citizen soldiers protect the same Constitution and rights for them as everyone else, and they follow orders given by politicians, but they cannot seem to understand that. Perhaps they should protest in Washington on the Mall where those political decisions are made and leave the rest of us, and especially our soldiers who have died alone? Hmmm???

    If soldiers oppressed the citizens, I don't think that their mindset or religious beliefs would change. It would just be the funerals of the 'victims' of the state that would get protested.
