• AdLib : Cheers Patsy! You cracked me up…and your music pics on the thread were great!
  • PatsyT : This has been great must go and watch the opening of the Olympics night everyone.

  • kesmarn : Going through the looking glass in 3…2…1…

  • boomer1949 : those doobie bros are very inspiring…

  • PatsyT : I must say I love that Javaz started this. She put in to words what so many of us have been feeling and I know there are more people out there that feel the same.

  • Chernynkaya : So, what have we decided, if anything? (No snark, just a kind of housekeeping.)

  • AdLib : SO, IT LOOKS TO BE ABOUT THAT TIME TO BRING TONIGHT’S EDITION OF VOX POPULI TO A CLOSE. THANK YOU ALL FOR SUCH A FANTASTIC AND HILARIOUS DISCUSSION ON HOW WE CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH ACTIVISM. THE CHAT CONTINUES AT THE RELATED POST, CLICK THIS LINK TO GO THERE: «link»

  • kesmarn : Has anyone suggested “Mad As Hell” as a possible name for the action committee? :lol:

  • boomer1949 : Okay Cher, bzzzzz, shhh, hisss, are you finished? :lol:

  • Khirad : Yeah, NM. And yes, it is named after the show.

  • Chernynkaya : Ahh, she can take it– we’re sisters in time.

  • PatsyT : Now now Cher don’t pick on our Boomer

  • AdLib : Since we were on such a roll on this topic, I thought it best to dedicate the evening to it. We’ll have to alert javaz to come here and scroll through the conversation to get up to speed with all the suggestions and ideas.

  • AdLib : Yes, NM.

  • kesmarn : Is “Truth or Consequences” in AZ?…Er, no, maybe New Mexico?

  • PatsyT : Global warming coming to AZ sooner than expected

  • boomer1949 : I was saying, “I’m in, but my computer is behaving like it’s on a 2 hour tape-delay. Somehow I feel like I’ve just gioven birth to my 4th child. Jeeze, it was so much easier 10 years ago. :smile:

  • AdLib : Is there a town named Purgatory in AZ?

  • Chernynkaya : Boomer, we needed a sec to talk behind your back. :lol:

  • kesmarn : LOL, AdLib! They are definitely gonna be in the long, slow, eternal crock pot, aren’t they?

  • AdLib : boomer – clear your cache then reload this page.

  • boomer1949 : OMG-my screen went totally blank.

  • AdLib : Well…I know AZ can get as hot as hell…didn’t realize it was a rehearsal.

  • PatsyT : It’s going to cost them so much more money !!!

  • kesmarn : Yeah, guys, and they lowered taxes on corporations at the same time. J’avaz posted about it.

  • AdLib : Kes – Is there outrage in the state over this?

  • PatsyT : Kes…you gotta be kidding that is terrible !

  • Chernynkaya : BASTARDS– I HOPE THEY ROT ON THEIR DEATH BED WITH MAGGOTS WHOLE STILL ALIVE.

  • AdLib : Kes – like it!!! We could have Ins. Co. CEOs casually smothering “patients” while railing against “death panels”.

  • kesmarn : :-D Cher, did you hear Arizona cut off funding for hospice care for Medicaid patients? Compassionate conservatives!

  • Khirad : Oh, YouTube? I’m in some way or another.

  • AdLib : Patsy – That would be the most practical approach. In some places, like here in L.A., there are several Planet members. In those locals, we could have one type of protest and similar ones conceived for individual members. Imagine what an impact it would have, with just a couple of dozen protesters across the country, performing the same cleverly-themed protest! That could indeed be worthy of national MSM coverage, not to mention local coverage!

  • Chernynkaya : Agreed, Patsy.

  • Chernynkaya : kes– OMG you are naughty! :twisted:

  • PatsyT : Cher It’s good there is a healthy interest about all this We are on a roll…

  • Chernynkaya : The YouTube thing requires no travel or money does it?

  • kesmarn : We could wheel out a hospital bed with a mannequin “patient” and I could demonstrate Arizona’s Hospice coverage by putting a pillow over the “patient’s” face and sitting on it. It’s called “fluffy sedation.”

  • Khirad : Me too kes. I cosign that sentiment.

  • Chernynkaya : I like that Patsy, and also– we are months away from the actual performance– we still need a concept.

  • Chernynkaya : AdLib: Ooops sorry, I was away for a minute! Forgive me guys.

  • kesmarn : Cher, in my case it may be simple logistics…trav el to destination and getting time off work. The spirit is willing but the wallet is weak.

  • PatsyT : Maybe the way to look at it is we could design a event that could be duplicated in other places all at the same time.

  • AdLib : Cher – several folks said before that they would.

  • AdLib : Kes – Right, especially when it’s against the status quo…meaning the owners of the MSM. However, make it irresistible to them on a visual and entertainment basis and they’ll but on a protest against themselves if they think it will get more viewers.

  • Chernynkaya : Why don’t the rest of you want to participate? are we overlooking an obvious flaw?

  • Khirad : OT – McLachlan singing.

  • kesmarn : Agree, AdLib, that eye-catching is the way to get the MSM to notice. They’re good at “disappearing” what doesn’t boost ratings.
