Hi, Dennis! Thank you for working as this group's administrator. People think when we host a group on the 'net that we are on our computer 24/7; we are not thought of as "having a life". And, oh, you mean you don't get paid for doing this? LOL To so many, the concept of volunteerism is totally foreign.
I belong to other groups that are trying to raise people's awareness of the slippery slope this nation's sovereignty, security and freedoms are on. I know how hard it is to motivate people to turn off their TV or video game and DO SOMETHING before we find ourselves being rounded up and dealt with like the Nazis dealt with the "Jewish problem". People seem to think it can't happen HERE. Not in AMERICA! Oh, yeah?
I am going to take a moment and take a page out of Sen. Patty Murray’s ( D. Wa.) play book. Sen. Murray prior to her election ran a campaign to send children’s shoes to the Congress to make a statement. Ergo her nickname Mom in Tennis Shoes.
I purpose we make our own statement.
I know we are all frustrated and angry relating to the “Stimlus” Spending package the Congress just rushed through and shoved down our throats, mortgaging our Nation and our Children and Grandchildren’s futures.
I have a plan to at least send a message to Congress that we are not happy, but it will take a lot of people being involved to make it work.
The Congress has just shoved this pork filled, political payoff, spending program down our throats. According to Sen Chuck Schumer we (Citizens) are not that concerned about the Pork Spending. I disagree. I think most Americans like you, are also angry and tired of being taken for granted.
I suggest everyone send a package of PORK RINDS to the Congress and let them know we did not like their PORK and they can now deal with ours. Imagine if you will, thousands of packages of Pork Rinds cluttering the offices of the congress.
During the week of 2 – 6 March send a package of pork rinds to your two Senators and Representative. Send them each a full package or get a regular size package and divide it into three (3) Zip-Loc bags and send them that way. Along with the PORK RINDS make sure you include a note as to your opinion of the Pork spending, and the PAYOFF’S’s to the likes of ACORN and others
It’s cheap to do and relatively simple to do. The cost will be far less than the $13 you will gain in your taxes.
In order for this to be a success we need everyone to get involved. Then pass the information on to their friends and so on and so forth.
It would be awesome to jam the congressional offices with Pork sent back to them in a literal sense.
The week of 2-6 March
Send Each of your Senators and your House Rep. a Package or partial package of PORK RINDS.
DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE A NOTE ABOUT YOUR OPINION OF THEIR CURRENT PORK and PAYOFF SPENDING FOR SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. (Or a statement on any other issue that strikes you as important to address)
(NOTE) : Send to the DC office, not their local district offices.
I don’t know how many of you agree, but the feedback has been very positive so far. I think it’s very doable. But we need thousands to get on board for this. NATIONWIDE would be great. We all know people in other states so try to get them involved as well. We can send a message that will possibly make them rethink things in the future. Doubtful as that may be.
This effort will not change anything, but it will send a message we are indeed ANGRY and Fed UP.
I just wonder where they will store thousands of bags of pork rinds?? Ha ha Not to mention the inconvenience to them and their office staffs. Of course this also means they have to create a a new canned response letter and send out to all that send the packages. They have to respond, Costing them time and resources. It will drive them insane IF Enough People Act.
We can’t do another Boston Tea Party ( That would wig out the Eco Freaks) Or organize in DC, but we can do a pork party.
I hope we can get mobilized and make this happen on a very large scale.
I will be putting my packages in the mail on Monday the 2nd. Lets Fill Their Offices With Pork Our Way!
Just get on line and type in a search for Your Senators and Rep’s Name and you can get their mailing address in DC.
Stand Up America, it’s a simple way all of you can make a statement. In mass, we can fire them up with our thoughts and opinion and inconvenience the hell out of them. They have no problem doing such to us.
I wonder what each Senator and Rep will do with thousands of packages of pork rinds. Ha ha ha I guess we know what the local food banks will be receiving.
This effort is focused on sacrifice to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.
