"Great Insulation"

This email was sent out today by a lefty in regards to the state legislator Town Halls scheduled for this Saturday, February 20.

----- Original Message -----
From: "Kathleen Reynolds"
Sent: Wednesday, February 17, 2010 3:15:58 PM GMT -08:00 US/Canada Pacific
Subject: Eric's town hall

Hi Ken and Brad,

Any chance you can attend Eric’s town hall on Saturday morning? He is concerned that teabaggers will show up and cause a ruckus. You two would be great insulation for our legislators against the ignorant righties.

I don’t know Ken and Jessica’s email address. Could you forward this message to them?

Thanks! --Kathleen

I'm glad to know that legislators that are supposed to represent ALL of their constituents are using some constituents as "insulation" from other constituents. If I lived in Eric Oemig's district, I would be very upset, and I might bring this email to the Town Hall and confront him with it.

Keep calling the ones that haven't said NO yet. Then watch and make sure those that said they'd vote NO actually vote NO. Keep them accountable to the voters. When they vote NO, call them and tell them THANK YOU!!

New Really Poorly Done Patty Murray Video - Are You Surprised?

Alright! Again, Patty Murray wows us with her video chops. Make sure to watch the whole thing and then leave a comment telling her what you think of her new bill that she's introduced.

Oh, and while we're at it, the following video is a pretty good example of progressives - at least the ones I saw today in Olympia rallying for higher taxes. Oops. I mean more revenue. Yup. They aren't saying the word "taxes" now. It's "Yes on Revenue!" It is as ridiculous as it sounds. This video is titled, "What Happens When He Doesn't Get What He Wants." (I.e. what happens when people slurping it up at the public trough want more taxpayer dollars to fund their own jobs and they don't get them. And they say capitalists are the greedy ones?? At least we don't demand other people pay our salaries and benefits. When we work and get paid it's because we provide a service or product that when exchanged for money mutually benefits both parties.)

And just to be fair. This video reminds me of our rally this morning, a.k.a. the rally for freedom and individual liberty.

Bitter, Clingy, Angry, Spiteful, Hateful

I.e., progressives.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Push Back No New Taxes Rally Tomorrow, February 15 - Get Inspired

If you are vacillating about whether or not to show up tomorrow at the Push Back rally in Olympia, hosted by the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, then let these videos inspire you to be there.

The first is a video of Obama's "Organizing for America" conducting trainings all over the US, getting their people ready to creep and slither out into the neighborhoods just like they did in 2008. Amazing how he is still campaigning.

I want you to watch this video and realize that our only weapon against them is us. Our time, our feet, our energy. We will never, ever be able to out-money these people. The Democrats are so fully and firmly entrenched with Wall Street now (though they deny it), and they have so many unions stealing money from the working class and funneling to the President and his party, that we will never match that. But we can, will, and must exceed their enthusiasm and ability to reach out. We can only achieve this is every one of us volunteers our time and sacrifices a few things along the way.

Watch this first video and get energized to fight back - hard. Then watch the second video to get truly inspired.

And now a palate cleanser. Remember why we fight, and get you and your family and friends to Olympia tomorrow, Monday, February 15th. It's President's Day and it's the anniversary of that very first Porkulus Protest in Westlake Park. Come celebrate.
