Need some ideas here friends, I have the attention of alot of Freepers
Advertisements [?]
I built a video wall (hey, I am the walldude koo koo koo choo) this week for a trade show in Denver. Turns out the show is The Christian Retailers Association. Every goddam freeper this side of the Mississippi is here. Luckily the booth I'm working in is selling videos of the old BBC versions of The Chronicles of Narnia so it's not too bad. However a lot of the booths, and there are hundreds of them, are full of freeper propaganda. I got a chance to walk around today and saw and heard so much about our wonderful President and his Christian values that I almost puked up my lunch. It really pissed me off, so I went back to my booth and did a little editing. I added a single frame graphic to the video I'm showing that says Impeach Bush! A single frame is 1/30th of a second so it's totally subliminal. There are two days left on the show and I want to do something bigger and better for the last day. Now I can't do it in my booth because, well, I'd like to get paid, but I can get on the show floor before everyone else. I was thinking of printing up fliers or something and leaving them in all the booths. But I'm not sure what to put on them. I want it to be effective but simple. Here's some of the things I saw today to show you what I am up against:

George W. Bush: The Greatest President Ever
George W. Bush: The Life Of A True Christian
The Secrets of Gays And Why They Shouldn't Be Secret
Accept Christ Or Pay The Price
The Evolution Lie
Noah And The Dinosaurs

Friends Don't Let Friends Go To Hell(??Then who am I gonna hang out with?)
Legalize... Prayer(I didn't know it was illegal)
Many, Many, Bush T-Shirts

Odds and Sods:
Scripture Candy
Bible Action Figures
Rapture Kits(I intend to ask tommorow what exactly is included in a Rapture kit.)

Now before you start flaming me for being anti-Christian imagine being a progressive, liberal, Jew, and spending a few days surrounded by this stuff, it'll make you nuts. There seem to be alot of nice people there but the level of ignorance is astounding.

So please, if you have an idea of a simple but effective message or photo or something I could put on a flier post it here, tommorow I will choose something, print up a few hundred of them and leave them in every single booth in the place.....
