Doesn't matter the size, it's the thought that counts!

4. What a great idea....
Let's all clean out our closets and send our old shoes to Bush.

Nothing like a bit of civil disobedience to show how we say good-bye.

5. I think this could become a theme.......
I'm liking it!


In the Arab world: a gesture of contempt
the Arab world, shoe flinging is a gesture of extreme disrespect. A notable occurrence of this gesture happened in Baghdad, Iraq in 2003. When U.S. forces pulled down a giant statue of Saddam Hussein during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, many Iraqi detractors of Hussein threw their shoes at the fallen statue.

This may be an ancient gesture from the Middle East; Psalms 60:10, speaking of some of the traditional enemies of Judah, says that "Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe...." (KJV)

The shoe represents the lowest part of the body (the foot) and displaying or throwing a shoe at someone or something in Arab cultures denotes that the person or thing is "beneath them." Showing the bottom of one's feet or shoes (for example, putting one's feet up on a table or desk) in Arab cultures is considered an extreme insult. Examples include Iraqi citizens smacking torn-down posters of Saddam Hussein with their shoes, and the depiction of President of the United States George H. W. Bush on a tile mosaic of the floor of the Al-Rashid Hotel's lobby, forcing all visitors entering the hotel to walk on Bush's face to enter the hotel.

During President George W. Bush's surprise visit to Iraq in December 2008, an Iraqi man threw shoes at him during a press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Kamel al-Maliki.<1>

2. OMG!! LOL!!!
We should all send him shoes! It's the thought that counts! I love it!
I guess it wouldn't have the same impact as throwing them at him but he'd
surely get the message!

11. Exactly~ I didn't quite get
the whole significance until I saw the video and then I realize what a hero this Iraqi reporter was for doing what all of us Feel like doing who want him punished for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity.

What if this didn't happen? The corporatemediawhores meme would only be david gregory's "..we have some good news.. bush is in Iraq". :silly: x(

20. At least one shoe for
every person whose life Bush has cost in Iraq.


It could later make a good museum piece for posterity, similar to the shoes in the Holocaust Museum.

7. Can I get some rec's so that we can get serious about this idea?
I've got a pair that I can live without.....

I'm going to send them to the White House on Monday...with a short note.
It will be worth the expense, IMO.

In DC? Just leave shoes at the gate! LOL!

16. I like the idea of sending a post card with a pic on it and with words
of expression on the back.. then the post office would be able to see it.. much better than a box wrapped up. Plus, its cheaper.. take two ideas and put into one.

34. or a post card in the Shape of a Shoe
Edited on Sun Dec-14-08 07:40 PM by Duppers
edited to add that a card cut in the shape of a shoe would draw more attention.
Then, no one would have to pick up the card to see a pic.

35. And I'm wondering if this will become a trend when he gets back home..
..... not the shoe MAILING part, that's fine. I'm talking about random people throwing shoes at him here in the US.

Of course he never leaves the house, so maybe there's nothing to worry about.

12. My note to be enclosed with a pair of my worn out shoes.....
Edited on Sun Dec-14-08 02:45 PM by FrenchieCat


Dear President Bush,

I am enclosing a pair of workshoes that I no longer need,
as I don't have work to wear them to.
Since I don't need them,
I thought I'd toss them your way.

oh and....Goodbye!

Signed,
An American Patriot

39. Remember the Bush Poo Flags?
Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking
miniature flag portraits of US President George W. Bush into piles of
dog poo in public parks. Josef Oettl, parks administrator for Bayreuth,
said: "This has been going on for about a year now, and there must be
2,000 to 3,000 piles of excrement that have been claimed during that
time."

The series of incidents was originally thought to be some sort of
protest against the US-led invasion ofIraq. And then when it continued
it was thought to be a protest against President George W. Bush's
campaign for re-election. But it is still going on and the police say
they are completely baffled as to who is to blame. "We have sent out
extra patrols to try to catch whoever is doing this in the act," said
police spokesman Reiner Kuechler. "But frankly, we don't know what we
would do if we caught them red handed." Legal experts say there is no
law against using feces as a flag stand and the federal legal experts
say there is no law against using feces as a flag stand and the federal
constitution is vague on the issue.

and let's all mail them on the same day, so the avalanche will really hit. It almost beats my fantasy of a worldwide fountain of fireworks at midnight on the 19th of January.

How to publicize it nationwide.

2. E-mail to the Veteran's for Peace group (s) to let them know.

3. E-mail to Riverbend,of the Is Baghdad Burning Blog, to let her know.
( I will do that unless someone else knows her and wants to)
4. Any other group we need to contact?

4. Pick a target Day....

if we could somehow mail the shoes to a group in DC who could then dump them at WH, with photos and news coverage...????????????
Before x-mas?

Like a million pairs of shoes to coincide with the million Iraq's killed. The million shoes of death and destruction.

26. I hurried back to recommend this thread. Everyone else who forgot to
recommend, please do so !

How about:
We try to time the mailing that they arrive right before Jan 20.
We make a big deal nationwide if at all possible.
We include the idea in our Christmas cards and letters to encourage others who know us and love us and won't be mad.
We include a note:

Dear President Bush
I limped in these shoes during your pResidency
with a new day, and the White House under new Management
let me send one of them to you.
It is your turn to limp
into the obscurity you
so richly deserve.
A
happy
citizen

ob.scu.ri.ty
def: absence of light. darkness

Is there anyone who has the time and is excited to organize it and keep it in front of all of us.
TOO COOL and so timely FrenchieCat !

The story will be in all the papers tomorrow.

27. Furthermore, please read my comments, and then I'll let this rest a minute or two:
A shoe, if you don't have one you want to spare, can cost as little as a couple of bucks at a goodwill store.
You put it in a post office prepaid envelope for as little as about three bucks fifty.

You then take the same amount of money, approx. and buy a food bank box at the checkout of your grocery store.
(4.99 at my counter)

Voila.
Everybody has been helped.
Because understanding how many shoes are being thrown at him will be a big help to Bush in assessing his legacy.

30. Let's do it people!
I just tracked down a crappy pair of sandals I wore once before they broke. They should fit nicely into a padded mailing envelope. Can you imagine how much fun the SS is going to have X-raying and using sniffer dogs on millions of pairs of shoes?? Heck, they might even have to beef up the workforce for a bit, and lots of folks could use those temporary jobs this Christmas.

Just one question: what address should I mail them to? POS, 1600 Pennylvania Ave, etc. etc.?

I hardly think anyone would send Boosh decent, usable shoes.

A better idea: send fratboy the dregs and donate a pair of new shoes to those in need.

73. I did. I boxed up probably 12 pair of decent shoes,
from pumps to boots to slippers, and took them to our homeless shelter.

I kept one pair that no one could possibly wear (cats chewed them up, and peed on them, my kitties hated those shoes) - so I'll box 'em up and mail 'em out first thing Monday.

SHOE YOU, **bushole!!!

69. I think this is a cute idea but for the life of me I don't want the Secret Service at my door
and even though the shoes would be harmless the intent might be considered otherwise.

Perhaps I could just send him a picture of a pair of shoes and then donate a pair of shoes to charity

76. Don't put a return address on the package.
I have a whole bag full of old shoes I'm getting rid of. I just might pull out a pair and send them off.

78. That address once again:
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

Some of you might have wondered about the zip code. The Postal Service will figure it out if you just say: The White House, Washington, DC. But it might take longer.

79. That's the first half of a wonderful idea.
The second half is to find some way to set it up so it becomes a big-time news story. Like, they should all be mailed to a central point & delivered as close as one can get to the White House in a dump truck. Notify the media in advance & cover it with your own cameras in case they decide it's not newsworthy--then splash the videos everywhere.
