March 21 Meeting Notes
In attendance: Kat, David, Skip, Kevin, Marshall, Kindall
We discussed the upcoming tax day protest. I haven't been able to find that any protests are scheduled already. If anyone else would like to take a stab at an internet search on the subject, that would be helpful. I called Bill Bunch who I was told usually does a protest every year in Dallas, but he said he wasn't doing it this year. I'm just assuming that we'll be on our own. Here's what we'll need:
*Someone who will contact the local media...fax, phone and email the TV stations to get them to cover this.
*Volunteers to go out to the protest, hand out fliers, wave signs around.
*People to print out fliers so it doesn't all fall on a couple people. We should have at least 300.
*David wants to burn 1040s, so said he'd find out if that was illegal for any strange reason.
*People willing to make signs.
*We need some more good slogans for signs
Here are the ideas we came up with (all would have the fsp url):
--Fight (or escape) the Internal Robbery Squad
--Honk if you hate taxes
--Move if you hate taxes. No income OR sales tax in NH
--More taxes = less freedom
--Abolish (or end) the IRS
--End gov't theft
--What could you do with 40% (or whatever it is they steal from us) more $$
--Income tax = socialism
--Tax Nazis go home
--Something about the NH bill questioning legality of the IRS
We'll probably do this at the Bulk Mail Center in Dallas at I30 and Hampton. We can do it in the evening & possibly during the day also, if someone is able to go down there during the day with me. Skip, David, and I will be able to be there in the evening & possibly Kevin if we can do it during the day also. Skip, David and I can do some of the fliers, but not all. I can do some signs.
So let me know how y'all can help. I'm going to try and build up a phone list so I can get in touch quicker for things like this, so send me your number (bookish_lass at yahoo . com) please
Also, some cool news: Marshall is the new head of the Dallas Co. LP. Great to have them active again!
P.S. Can you believe they deleted my amusing (to me!) suggestion that we have a prostitution liaison?!?
