Lincoln Davis has went from leaning no to undecided. He gives you the run around if you ever get through to him. I think he is going to vote yes. @$$hole.

Great job! Wish I could have been there since that IS where I live but I didn’t find out about it until the day before and couldn’t get off work. Great turnout!

Thanks to GOP-Lady for all the html work I can’t do. A few sound bites and a couple of more photos.

16 March, 2010 - A Visit to Representative Tanner’s Millington Office

The Mid-South Tea Party visited The Millington office of Representative John Tanner of Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District. Our purpose was to encourage the Representative not to cave in to Democrat pressure to change his previous NO vote on government ruined healthcare to a YES vote. It was a great time and we thank each and everyone that came out as well as those that were there in spirit!

KEEP THE CALLS UP! DC OFFICE LOCAL OFFICE

Hold your own street protest in front of your reps local offices. Or busy street corners. Try and get the local media to cover it. Hammer the Medicare/SS issue, nothing like mad grannies and gramps.

This is from a 2007 contact list of congressional aides. Some might not be there any longer, but worth a try. The ones on the one post are senate aides, a few have bounced back, it’s worth the effort to clog up their email system along with the phones, and 1/3rd of these senators are up for re-election.

Mail must be inspected for anthrax takes 2 weeks, so if you snail mail send a post card

Contact congressional aides.

Defeat Obamacare call list: List now contains the new MAYBES culled from FR posts. Be sure to call KNOWN RINOS too.THEY ARE ANSWERING THEIR LOCAL NUMBERS

Here is one of the ones Rush gave out on the radio that I’m calling. So far it’s been busy but I’m going to burn it up till I get to tell my congress critter to vote NO!
Join me?..... 1-877-762-8762

CODE RED Contact list http://www.nrcc.org/CodeRed/targets/
Remember they are all being offered BRIBES for their votes. Ask them how much their bribe price is.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Sunday March 21st.

Good idea from the bloggers at Hillbuzz:

http://hillbuzz.org/2010/03/17/action-items-march-17th-2010/
They offer specifics and links on how to put pressure on Dem DONORS, who have private numbers for legislators who may have taken their phones off the hook.

Congress may not want to hear from us, but they’ll listen to the money men.
Call them and fax them them instead of telling us you don’t trust them.

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

I'm going to the rally this afternoon, will have more photos to upload! :) Had to run to Home Depot for some paving stones for hubby, educated a retired Afro American man...told him about the rally, and cohen and tanner's votes...he was not a happy camper! told him to spread the word and gave him a copy of one of the news articles about the CUT & GUT of SS/Medicare. I think the GOP goofed by not hammering on the issue and riling up the Seniors! This Senior is boiling MAD!

New photos are up starting with the green sign. News 24/30 was on site, they may have video up later. About 100 turned out including a African-American Doctor of 30 years who hopefully got interviewed, we pointed him out to the reporter, and he was willing to be interviewed. Says he'll quit if this OBAMANATION goes through, just like my internist will. IF 46% of doctors quit/retire 0 will be forced to import them from foreign countries, or CONSCRIPT the retired doctors and FORCE them to practice against their will.

That last shot is of Dr. Jesse Cannon, a African American CONSERVATIVE. That was quick work, I checked the news sites of 24/30 and didn’t see any video yet. BUT did watch it on the news.

Great pictures, Gail!

Dr. Cannon looks like a good man who cares about his profession and patients.

Sorry again! I’ll just have to support you guys in spirit. With my family, work and volunteer obligations I don’t have the luxury of being able to pick up and go on such short notice. Good luck and I’ll try and honk next time I see you guys out there!
