Let us pray and hope for the best.
Are you coming for the rally?

Default If we are true to ourselves...

...we are our biggest motivators!

Folks who are going to the rally, like yours truly, can only do so much to motivate the fence-sitters...
It all boils down to one and only one thing...are you being true & honest to yourself?

If yes, then I'm positive that you will do whatever it takes to be in San Jose on Sep 8!

If no, then I'm all the more positive that you will find enough reasons not to be a part of this struggle for fairness, which by the way will ultimately benefit YOU!

So, please, ask yourself this question and decide for yourself...I sincerely hope your answer would be YES. Thank you all!

Default Things To Know about Distributing Flyers Possible Target Locations

Parking Lots:
• Shopping malls, WalMart, Target, Home Depot,
• Grocery outlets
• Bus Depots
• Train stations
• Libraries
• Hotels
• Tourist hangouts
• Beaches
• Airports
• Starbucks
• Sport events, Car shows, Festivals and anywhere that is crowded.
• High school football games, little league games
• Vending machines
(* NEVER scotch tape or any tapes on car windshields)
Drive thru:
• Banks (under the tube chute)
• Fast foods (under the ordering speaker)
Indoors:
• Bulletin boards (activity centers, fitness centers, grocery outlets, Laundromats etc.)
• Dressing rooms (department stores)
• Bathrooms and port-a-potties (stalls inside door)
• Highway Rest stops
• Info racks in Welcome Centers, Hotels and Motels
• Shelves at grocery stores, pharmacies etc.
• Elevators
• Starbucks
• In the shopping carts (in the aisles, parking lot)
• Vending machines
Other methods: (optional)
• Door to door
• Senior citizen centers
• Hand out on the streets
• Stick flyers inside pre-paid envelopes
• P.O.Boxes and Mail vents (**This one is tricky as it maybe illegal in some areas – do check first)
• Share with friends and ask for help to distribute
• Call in ALL your IOU’s. Ask everyone that owes you a favour, they can help you do some flyering – give them some basic flyering info.
• I like to tell sympathetic Anti Obama people that I leave flyers around. A lot of them get curious and some tell me they want to do that too… I have recruited 18 year olds to 70 something year old’s… (from Freddie)
Last minute Option: Wad up the flyer, grab an obot by the hair, and shove it down their fucking throat. Having them read the flyer first, is also optional.

Things to bring with you while out distributing flyers:
• Rolls of scotch tape
• Other stickers (such as with Nobama or Vote McCain/Palin on it)
• stapler
• glue dots

Prepare yourself before distributing flyers
Distributing Flyers in the Community:
One of the best ways to get to know your community and the small business people, is to distribute your flyers at stores, restaurants, convenience stores, laundromats, bars, etc.
Distributing Flyers in the Streets:
One of the easiest ways to "get your feet wet" is distributing flyers at events, parades, etc., interacting with the public in a non threatening way. This is by no means easy but you know the adage, blood, sweat and tears will apply. If you are shy, there are many other ways that don’t require face to face interaction.
Do not waste your time engaging Obots. You will not get anywhere. Focus on why you are doing this
If you do it with confidence, no one will question you – normally.
Rule One: Never distribute flyers alone. Always go in pairs. This is for safety, and for practical reasons.
Rule Two: Blend in with the community in your appearance and demeanor. If the community you are targeting is a college campus, send your young, college age members, dressed accordingly. If the community is working class, don't wear a suit. Be clean, friendly, non confrontational, and smile like you're having fun!
Rule Three: Position yourself to hand out the maximum number of flyers with a minimum of disturbance. Don't block sidewalks, stay to the side. Hold the flyer out, let folks take it. NEVER press flyers on anyone. If someone doesn't want a flyer, refuses it or hands it back, no problem. Smile but don't slow down nor get in a conversation, just continue handing out flyers.
Rule Four: Repeat! Don't argue, don't discuss, don't explain and don't turn around and go back. Hand out flyers. If engaged in conversation, you can't hand out flyers
Rule Five: Know your 1st Amendment rights & exercise them. You have the right to hand out flyers on any public sidewalk, park, or right of way. You do not have to obtain any kind of permit to do so. However, you need to decide in advance, what action(s) you want to take if confronted by the police. Unless you are breaking the law, no one is going to arrest you for handing out flyers.

When the August 25th rally was annonced, I myself and a friend of mine (who visits IV regularly), booked the tickets for the rally. BTW we are from NJ. When it was postponed we did to with out flinching. In the mean while I was hoping to see a lot of "we will be there" messages from all over US. Utterly disappointed but not de-motivated.

Guys do this for yourself. I am planning to preserve the pictures I have of the rally, including my pictures with placards so that, years from now, I can tell my daughter that I stood for what I believed in. That I went across the country to attend a rally. I also hope to tell her that people from all over USA made it to the rally. Come on guys, you asked for Action Items. Isn't this the best ?

Default What's even more amazing...

...is to see that about 100 people are actively viewing this thread, may be in anticipation that someone will come forward and say that they will in fact be there at the rally! Huh!

People are more interested in seeing what's brewing than being an active part of it!

Come on guys, show the courage by getting your hands dirty...
