1st LI LadySeed Event, June 25-26 2011

May 31st, 2011

The Long Island Appleseed crew has done it again – they have initiated the first ever NY LadySeed event!

The June 25 & 26 Appleseed at Calverton is now a LadySeed. Female AS instructors from all over the country will be traveling to Long Island to instruct at our first ever all female Appleseed event. This is a historic occasion, and I think we would all like to see this event sell out quickly. We fully anticipate that this will be the first of many ladies-only Appleseeds in NY.

Let’s all do our best to make this event an overwhelming success!

Register now to reserve your Spot on the line!!

April 16-17 2011 Commemorative Event, Join Us!

April 6th, 2011

April 16 and 17, 2011 will mark the fifth year Appleseed will celebrate Patriot’s Day (April 19), the battles of Lexington and Concord, the shot heard round the world, and the heritage that follows and leads Americans young and old, to this very day.

Come join us as we commemorate these events with our own take on this historic shot.  Saturday, April 16 at 4pm Eastern, 3pm Central, 2pm Mountain, and 1pm Pacific, Appleseed Instructors at over 100 events across the country will read the names of those killed at Lexington the morning of April 19th, 1775 and salute them with a volley of fire unprecedented in the history of the world.

That is no exaggeration.  With a combined total of over 2,500 shooters on civilian firing lines across the United States, we will constitute the longest known simultaneous single-purpose firing line in history.  If it were possible to get official observers to each of these events, we would be able to claim this as a record.

Don’t you want to be a part of this?  Don’t you need to be a part of this?

Appleseed – saving a country, one Rifleman at a time.

..How can we find the time to Appleseed?..

January 11th, 2011

     With so much going on in our daily lives, with our time being divided into so many ways during the course of a busy day, How can we find the time to Appleseed?

     Modern man and all our technology, all our conveniences yet every minute of every day seems hard pressed for time.  So many distractions all day long from commercial marketing, media news blitz, junk mail, spam email, Hollywood movies, our National sports syndicate, reality TV, thousands of cable channels, endless blogs and postings on the World Wide Web, millions of opinions, everyone wants your attention and everyone wants a buck from you.  How can we find the time to Applessed?

      Then it is  the car repairs,  house or apartment upgrades or repairs, health issues either routine or from a  related illness, physical fitness to stay strong and active, working full time, sometimes two jobs to make the bills, career building, climbing that company ladder, cell phones, smart phones, banking issues and budgeting, credit cards, parenting children, homework, cooking, food shopping, is it organic?, & the computer just crashed.   Have you read the latest bill trying to be passed in the U.S. Senate?  The latest act of legislature trying to get signatures in the U.S. House of Representitives?  Do we even have the time and energy to keep up?  I can probably go on and bore the bones out of you.  I cirtainly can think of lots of other things we must do and learn in our every day confussing, hectic lives to survive a  modern day.  Lets face it, to exist you need to know a lot about a lot of things.  How can we find the time to Appleseed?

     Sometimes at the end of a day I wonder who I am and the influences I have received throughout the day.  Am I still the person I want to be?, or have  I been subjected to so much of  the constant bombardment of marketering ideas and influence that subconsciously I am being molded into what they want me to become.  How can we find the time to Applesseed? 

     If you are religious or spiritual like I am, you pray, meditate, look for answers to enhance survival, to prepare for death.  You search for what can be done to establish divine law and order to your life and those around you.   You look to master self control in a society that breeds no control.  How can we find the time to Appleseed?

      I grew up in the 1970’s in a small town in NYC.  I know what life was like with first hand experience and I know the changes that have taken place.  I  see with my eyes the difference in the quality of life from then till now.  I understand the marvels of technology both good and bad and the burden they can become when we dependent on them for life.  How can we find the time to Appleseed?

     With The Appleseed Project doing so much everyday, every weekend to bring American Families together to gather and talk, to learn the struggles of our American History & Heritage in the early years of 1775, before and after.   Trying to get us, The Citizens of The Greatest Republic ever devised on the face of the Earth, to take responsibility for themselves and their inherent Country.  To be the Citizens they need to be, to hold accountability to the American Leaders, Bankers, Corporations, Unions and All their fellow Country Men.  People, I ask you. can we do this? Will we fail our Founders? or Will You Find The Time To Come To An Applessed……..and make a difference right now…………..

…..Strength & Honor………………..Josey Wales…………………….

Here we go Long Island!

January 8th, 2011

Good Evening O my brothers and sisters,

Here it is thanks to Ramit!  The Appleseed Long Island web-site and forum.  We felt that, since we’re so isolated yet so connected to each other out here (yes, Brooklyn is on Long Island, and so is Queens, so me and Josey Wales are Long Islanders too!)…  well, since we’re so isolated yet so connected to each other, we felt like we should have our own web-site and newsletter.  Keep your eyes out for the newsletter in the next couple of days.  It’s in the capable hands of our very own Rattlesnake.  So far, the staff of the newsletter consists of myself as editor and Rattlesnake as designer.  The web-site is the work of Ramit with VietVet providing an excellent story as our first piece of content.  That’s four of us so far, but we want everybody to get involved.  I’m still not sure how this works, so if you see it , please post to let us know somebody’s out there.  I hope you guys are as excited as we are!

Remember to come to Calverton this month Jan. 29-30.  Also, we have what’s called an IBC (Instructor Boot Camp) upstate at Burlington Flats Rod and Gun club the week before – that’s Jan 22-23.  Don’t be afraid to cross to the mainland!  Anybody that wants to become an Instructor is welcome to come to this if they’re serious.  Just contact me., or 718 490 7665.  We will have an event at Calverton the last week-end of each month – FOREVER!!!

And please, don’t hesitate to register on Appleseed’s national forum –

See you on the trail!
