Communicate! Let the Sons of....
various links | 10-10-01 | backhoe

Posted on 10/10/2001 3:19:12 PM PDT by backhoe

..Bees know what's on your mind!

Here are some links for mass communications, and email addies for "our" Reps. Be advised the emails are from sources other than myself, I do not guarantee each one to be timely & accurate. I have used some OK, but not all. I suggest you try them individually before cranking out huge "BCC lists".

Most of the email addies for "newsgroups" and "opinionators" have been tried; some get kicked back routinely, some don't. I have eliminated those who sent nasty "you are spamming me!" replies, but again- I make no guarantee you won't get them. too. If you get such a reply, be courteous & remove them.

That "megalinks" link reaches down into state-level officials, explore its range and use it.

Let the SOB's know what you think!

What you do is create a "group" in Outlook Express like "Newsgroups" or "Opinionators" with these addies and Blind CC 'em so they don't know it's a mass email.

Email Addies bracketed by ** are questionable, but if followed by another address, try that one.

Always be courteous, but firm, even adamant, if you are of a strong opinion about something.

Consider the tactic of sending links to articles you think these people should know about, something along the lines of,

"You *need* to read about this...."

I know you probably have seen these before- what I'd like to ask you all to do is flag those you know with activist inclinations to this post- and feel free to copy any & all of these and send them on to others as well. Note the caveats I listed above- not everyone likes to hear from us!

( ~blush!~ )-- well, thanks- my wife would probably agree with the "asset" part...

"He sets on his a$$ real good- now if I could just git him 't get up 'n do some of the housework around here...."

Seriously, the e-world makes communicating so easy that there's no excuse for anyone not being at least a low-level activist anymore.... even the most inarticulate can get up a list, make a link, and say "Read *this*-- so why don't you 'watchdogs of the press' investigate and report on this story?"

I've published all those links & addies before, but this is the first time I felt like adding 500 or so line breaks to the dam' things! Whew!

The world has always had, and will always have, a reservoire of "Clinton"-type scumbags, rats and irresponsible boobs. If we want to keep these types out of government, and especially out of the White House, WE MUST REPEAL THE 19TH AMENDMENT NOW.

Note to all: Repeal the 19th Amendment and you won't see any boobs, irresponsible or not!

Signed,
the Women of America

I suggest that in sending paper letters to your two US Senators and one US Representative that you use DHL or Fedex or any other private mailer. Several advantages:

1. Probably no unsolicited mail through the US post office is being opened in Congress these days.

2. The express mail has your correct name and address clearly identifying you as a voter in that person's district/state.

3. Someone in the office has to sign for the delivery of the letter.

4. It has the look of an important piece of correspondence and thus immediately attracts more attention (good attention, not scary attention).

5. It shows that you are serious enough about this issue to invest a few dollars in making sure that your opinion is heard.

Also, I completely agree with the advice to be polite but firm. We are writing these letters for maximum result, not to blow off steam. Blow off steam here in the forum, write letters to your representatives with results in mind. Best to include some statement about, "your action on this issue will determine whether or not I vote for you in the next election".

I've persuaded a couple of people to join FR just on the strength of these lists you've posted here. The word is getting out. Contact the buttholes in Congress and make them pull back the red carpet for terrorists. Of course, if you're in Boston or Berkeley you might not have much of a chance... but there's a lot of good USA in between.

I've persuaded a couple of people to join FR just on the strength of these lists you've posted here

Really? Geez! I'll try to be more statesmanlike in my rantings....

But seriously, while Free Republic may be a unique voice for conservatives ( and some Libertarians ) on the web, it's also a wonderful news source and research tool.

I used to zoom all over the web for news & opinions, but I have found that 9 times out of 10, if something has merit, it ends up here... usually much faster than it reaches the "mainstream" media.

Even more valuable is the online real-time commentary by members-- when you have dozens or hundreds of people from all over the world, in all walks of life, with all sorts of unique perspectives, the real truth gets shaken out very quickly.


You know, I don't know if I have the typing skills and patience to pull it off, but I- or some other FReeper- needs to compose a "User's Guide to Free Republic," outlining how to use the internal search engine, how to use google Advanced to search the site for information, listing a lot of "lists & links" here that cover subjects like, say, Klamath Basin, which the "watchdog press" has done a poor job of covering accurately.


And just FYI, here's where most of my "lists of links" and articles are:

True.

Nobody's added to this thread lately. I hope that doesn't mean that nobody's reading it. I hope there are new people checking in here every day to get the addresses they need at the top of this thread.

I always wonder about that, too. I know that if an article isn't in the first 100 or 200 posts I look back on, I'm liable to miss it, unless it is cross-linked on some current post I am reading.

I know there is an awful lot I miss, and I am on rather regularly, from about 4:00 Am 'til 9:00 Pm each day.

Look at this:

Look Here: I was amazed at how many stories I missed- did you miss them, too? Consider saving this link to disc....

We need a lurk-counter, so we can tell how often a thread is read.

I have noticed that sometimes when a post appears on the main page and includes a one paragraph summary, there may be a final line with "1 comment, 217 views" ( varies ) in it- I dropped JimRob a note asking how to access this info but haven't heard back from him. Will advise when I do.

Thanks- you can *really annoy* a whole lot of different people with all those links! I set up a "group" email in Outlook express for "News Groups" with about 25 different papers' letters to editors as a recipient, and another for "opinionators" for people like Larry Elder, et al, and BCC them with links to stories I think they need to know about.

Just for the "H" of it I posted a link to this a few minutes ago on thefiringline.com -- they are a Libertarian/conservative board with over 12,000 members. While mainly tech info & RKBA related, they do a fair amount of activist-type things, too.

I still wish we had a bloodly counter visible on these posts so we could keep track of how many actually read them, and see when the go dead.

Gee, I missed your reply... thanks for looking!

Without the lists of several fine members I would have had to make this list a lot shorter and less complete.

I really think since 911 and the anthrax attacks that e-communication will be a lot more effective.

Good morning. Thanks for all the links. I saw your post on Yahoo, and followed it over. I can't get to anything but self search here. Are you having the same trouble?

Help! I'm having trouble with FR this morning. I can't get into "Threads". I did manage to post an article. And I can "reply" to article via "Self Search" access. I assume it's problems with the new server? I hope this isn't a glimpse into what we can expect in the future??

I went to Yahoo! and a LOT of others voice the same experience this morning (Florida, NJ, Illinois, Wisconsin, etc., etc., etc. . . I'm sure it's being worked on. Can you advise what's going on and when we'll be able to access all channels? Thanks!!! :o)
