R3VOLUTION Marshals/Medics from 2008! We are called to serve in Tampa.

Greetings Marshals and Medics of R3VOLUTION March 2008!

An email has just gone out to you on the old list. Many of you have changed addresses. If you didn't get the email we need you to update yourself at:

http://www.paulfestival.org/contact-us/volunteers

Make sure you indicate that you are a Marshal or Medic from last time.

This job is gonna be exactly the same in that all the similarities will be totally different ;) Totally new t-shirts so don't worry if your old one became pillow stuffing.

If you are in touch with any of us, check and make sure they got the word.

New volunteers, use the same form!

If someone can post this over at RPF that would be great.

-You Know Who

ok last self bump

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

At great personal risk

this music

The lyrics are below

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

OK I make a fool of myself and you people can't even lampoon me?

I am told i am a horrible singer so I was expecting some response like "Oh dear Jesus Lord please intervene with your holy intervation and put a sock up this guy's nose".

So this lack of response means you hate me so much that I am not even worthy of a response, I so sickened you that you are too busy puking in the alley that you simply have no time for me.

Such it may be but I'm not sorry, I'M NOT SORRY I sing to you and I will continue to do so.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

BUMP...

because I'm feeling bad for picking on Smudge the other night...and now he's gone all "inspirational" on me...which looks good on him ;]

Time is a bit pressed so I'll clue you guys in on the mission

Statement of purpose for Paulfestival security:

1. Paulfestival, by order of the board, will be a family-oriented thing by day and a bit of a party at night.

2. Our movement is well-know for policing ourselves and not taking police, fire or medical resources from the surrounding community: we are guests in Tampa.

3. There will be camping on sight, making security requirements a 24-hour affair.

4. We will work with event resources, all local PD, Sheriffs, EMS and FD to maintain order and safety for ourselves, the surrounding community and all those we contact with an attitude of professionalism and cordiality.

5. We will try our best to respond to the security and safety needs of our people at all times.

6. We joyfully accept the participation of our sub-groups and leaders in this context. We had just 34 trained R3VOLUTION Marshals for R3VOLUTION March in 08 and that was just barely enough. But it really showed what dedication and working your butt off can do.

7. The nucleus of trust we build during this event might come in handy as the actual RNC commences.

8. We get our people there, we assist them to do their boogie and we get every single one of us home safe. Not one of us left behind.

Those are tall orders. But every single challenge this movement has faced to date has always been a higher and taller order. By working together and putting the objective above ourselves, we have always managed to address every shortfall.

Remember the parable of the servants who were given their share when the master departed. One spent it foolishly and another hid it under a rock and the other put it out at interest. I'm probably missing part of it but I think the parable of the light under the bushel ties in there some place.

Forget the parables. This isn't a script reading, this is real life. A person of great wisdom once told me that this is not a dress reheasal, this is the real thing.

Let's go be the real thing.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

WOW!!!

You're actually kinda cool when you aren't being so negative. ;]

Oh great

let that get around and my rep is screwed.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

A carol perhaps?

(to the tune of Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel)

Oh come oh come to Tampa y'all
and do the job for movement and Ron Paul
so many people gonna be there
and they will need to know what's what and where.

Be choice! Be choice!
And do our people well
or MSM will make us look like hell.

Oh come oh come ye troops and Oathkeepers.
Take your boots and sandals or sneakers.
This is civillian security
The kind of job that makes you smile with glee.

Be Choice! Be Choice!
And do our people well
or MSM will make us look like hell.

Oh come oh come you young and fresh-faced newb,
cause man do we have one big job for you.
We're for our people day, night and morn,
we screw this up, we'll wish we'd never have been born.

Be Choice! Be Choice!
And do our people well
or MSM will make us look like hell.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.
