The next meeting for the Dallas-Fort Worth FSP group will be:

Location:  Old San Francisco Steak Houses

Phone:      (214) 357-0484
Time:       3-7pm

This place has two private meeting rooms upstairs.  The man I talked to on the phone was real helpful, too, and claimed the rooms were quiet.  I've never been there, but it got fairly good reviews on Dine.com.

Thanks Kat!  When is the meeting?

welcome tmadden.....  You may be too far to make it to Dallas regularly but have you considered setting up a meeting in OKC or Tulsa?

I set up a meeting in Colorado Springs pretty easily when I was there on a visit so I bet you could do the same in Tulsa...

As you may know, the Dallas Free Staters are starting to work in support of Free Stater Joey Dauben's campaign for Midlothian school board.  This is to help give us some experience campaigning and also something to work toward together.

If you're interested in helping out with Joey Dauben's campaign for school board in Midlothian....sound off here and leave your e-mail.   One of us will try to get you into action.

His site is www.joeydauben.com

I sincerely apologize for missing today's meeting; I flat-out forgot about it. I hate giving excuses for not doing things, or for doing them, but I just flat-out forgot.

I did count my yard signs, and I have 125 left. That's light compared to last year when three people including me put them together.

I'm waiting for stakes. I'll run through my voter reg. list to highlight the over-65 voters; that's what the campaign's main target group will be I imagine.

Kat, thanks for setting everything up.

I'm sure you guys would like to know where I'm coming with this incite-the-debate on several forum sections below in the Libertarian Discussion. We'll talk more later.

And if Lauren or any other FSP-UTD person is reading this, please direct me to the message board thing you guys were talking about.

Crawford
« Reply #7 on: March 22, 2004, 01:11:05 am »


I did attend the March on Crawford event Saturday, which is why I woke up so late Sunday.

It was so much fun; I was in the VERY VERY front row when Ralph Anti-Automobile Nader was speaking, and took photos and all that stuff.

I was told Lauren and Gaby were there by Austin, whom I ran into. We stayed for Alex Jones (i.e., Infowars.com) and that rocked.

Couple of my religious-patriot friends came with me, and ooh, I made off with a 20-foot-plus banner that says: This war brought to you by Halliburton.

It's cool.

Way too many socialist organizations there; we need to have more of a LP or RLC following at these things.

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!

Kat

P.S.  Can you believe they deleted my amusing (to me!) suggestion that we have a prostitution liaison?!?

Oh I finally had what I think is a good idea regarding a sign-slogan for our proposed April 15 endeavors:

Fight Taxes
Come to NH

Great guys!  Joey, will you be able to make a couple signs, print out some fliers?

Here's another one (from a different thread) I liked:

Work hard!  People on welfare depend on you.

"If we could JUST spend 1 more trillion dollars in Iraq, I know we can find WMD."

"Halliburton thanks you for those corporate welfare checks"

"Your condescending attitude is appreciated by big government"

I can't remember where I read this one now:

Medieval serfs gave only 30% to their masters.
What does that make you?

and I'd add (to all the signs):
