Monday Empty Chair Day
Legal Insurrection ^ | 8-31-12 | William Jacobson

Posted on 09/01/2012 9:24:10 PM PDT by STARWISE

That’s what reader Sandy writes:

Prof – Seems that there is an effort to make Monday “empty chair day”

Below is an image of my front lawn, just mowed, to ensure the emptychair looks right. The sign next to the chair says: “We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of ours . . . And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.” –Clint Eastwood

The huge cultural divide is reflected in the photo above contrasted with this NY Daily News article and photo about “Eastwooding” by New Yorkers who think the joke was on Eastwood:

(video here, did not embed because autorun)

Who knew an empty chair could expose so much.

Send me your “empty chair” photos on Monday, and I’ll run them.

The Twitter hashtag is #EmptyChairDay

Just checked .. the #EmptyChairDay twitter site isn’t yet open. Hopefully, it’s in process.

The county party is going to be in the local Labor Day parade Monday. I think we’re going to use the Empty Chair idea on our float.

Apologies to songwriters Burt Bacharach & Hal David (RIP 9/1/2012)

A chair's an empty chair
Even when Obama's sitting there
But Obama's not a man
Who can lead us to a land
Of prosperity - just hope and change
Just empty words, like the man - deranged.

Great! It could go nationwide and viral. May it be so.
Who knew what legend Clint started? Let the libs diss him .. he’s a great American, and sane Americans knows it!

"Go Hope Yourself"


“We own this country… Politicians are employees of ours…
And when somebody does not do the job,
….. we’ve got to let them go”
