Can DU Counter this Am For Prosperity "Virtual Rally" set for 3/17 for OH SB5?
Edited on Fri Mar-11-11 10:51 AM by mod mom
AFP-Ohio State Director: Rebecca Heimlic
Action Alert: Take 30 seconds next Thursday, March 17, to join us in a virtual rally

Please take 30 seconds between noon and 1 pm NEXT Thursday, March 17th, to join fellow activists across Ohio in a virtual rally in support of Senate Bill 5. You can act right from your home or office. Details are below.
You've probably read or heard about the public sector labor union protests down at the Statehouse in Columbus over the last two weeks. The union-funded protests have received a lot of media coverage. The labor unions are protesting Senate Bill 5 (SB5), which is a bill that would allow your township/village/city/school district/county/state to control the out-of-control compensation, health care, and gold-plated pension costs of their government employees. Because many of those local government entities are hitting deficits and compensation package costs are the single largest piece of local government budgets, without more control over spending, they will be forced to raise your already high taxes.

SB5 recently passed the Ohio Senate. The Ohio House is now considering the bill.

To show legislators and Governor John Kasich that there is a silent majority of Ohioans who would prefer government compensation cost cuts over large tax hikes, there is a "I am the Silent Majority Virtual Rally" on Thursday, March 17th from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.

You may be wondering what a "virtual rally" is. Well, because I know you are too busy working, taking care of your kids, and trying to get ahead, you don't have time to drive to Columbus for a big rally. So, to make participating in this important event as easy and quick as possible for you, the "virtual rally" will consist of one roughly thirty second task during lunch.
To make sure you voice counts and you can take part in this vital rally for Ohio's future, all you need to do is send an email by:

(1) cutting and pasting these three addresses for House Speaker William Batchelder, Governor Kasich, and the email used to make sure we get an accurate count of how many Ohioans participate (district69@ohr.state.oh.us ; John@kasichforohio.com ; imthesilentmajority@gmail.com ) in the "To:" line,

(2) typing (or cutting and pasting) "I am the Silent Majority" in the "Subject:" line,

(3) typing (or cutting and pasting) "I support SB5" in the body of the email, and

(4) sending the email anytime between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm on Thursday, March 17th.

That is it. Thirty seconds, 8 words, 3 addresses, 1 email, and the inbox ping of thousands of Ohioans making their voices heard. Freedom at its best!
If you really want to make our voices heard, please take a minute or so RIGHT NOW to forward this email to family members, friends, and business colleagues who you think might want to participate in America's first-of-its-kind virtual rally. If you don't speak up now, the labor unions and their push to raise taxes will be the only thing our elected officials hear. The time to act is now!


SO THEY ARE EXPLAINING AWAY THEIR PATHETIC RALLY TURNOUT <http://www.progressohio.org/blog/2011/03/tea-party-flop... > BY STATING THEY ARE TOO BUSY TO TURNOUT. WELL WORKING CLASS FAMILIES ARE ASO BUSY & TURNED OUT 20,000! <http://blog.aflcio.org/2011/03/01/more-than-20000-rally... >

ANY DUERS THINK OF A GOOD WAY TO COUNTER THIS?

9. No, they came...
...there just weren't very many of them. At the past two rallies I've been to I've seen a grand total of one SB 5 supporter.

6. The links are there ....
We can flood the emails with lines such as "THIS IS BULLS**T" or the like.

Or get in touch with "Anonymous". Don't have a clue how to do that.

It would be great to see the sites go down on that day during those hours!

Sorry but I have to go and attend to my Lime-Chili Marmalade.

Julienning 50 little Persian Limes takes a little time, thought I'd add this
before I slice my fingers and can't type. LOL

11. I sent it to Progress Ohio & asked to make sure the union folks got it as well.
Looking at their pathetic rally turnout, I hope we can topple any attempts they do on a virtual level as well. :hi:
