Massive discussion underway at

this yahoo link

Should be easy to pop in and make a pitch for living in a free place where your tax dollars don't fund this kind of nonsense.

I've posted this message on the yahoo link above.  The direct link is

http://news.messages.yahoo.com/bbs?action=
m&board=37138445&tid=apgaymotherschool&sid=37138445&mid=4699

But you'll have to paste it together.

Anyone else want to do the same or back me up when the Empire Strikes Back?

Move to NH to avoid this nonsense
by: dadaorwell    12/03/03 02:14 am EST

The problem here, often overlooked, is not gay folks or religious folks....the problem is that all Americans have their hard-earned money taken from them coercively and dumped into monopolistic government schools. Once there the cash is misused to perpetrate nonsense like this, and the victims cannot punish the offending institution by "switching to a different company." But parents, and the market, would quickly rectify or avoid this kind of BS if there were uninhibited, free-market school choice.

This is no longer a theoretical discussion but a dream that may someday become reality in one state: New Hampshire. If you want to battle the government-run education-prevention camps with a fighting chance of success, that's the place to be.

"Marcus had to come to school early and repeatedly write: "I will never use the word `gay' in school again." "

Am I the only one who sees the irony in that "punishment"?  ::)

Take a look at the ad draft I came up with for Goose Creek here.

Jim - I have two words to describe your ad:

shock and awe.

That is excellently done, and sure to get a lot of disgruntled parents on board with the program.  One suggestion, I might remove the oath from the bottom - I think we stand a better chance of getting people to move to NH if we get them to the site first.

Here's a newspaper in Goose Creek:

GOOSE CREEK GAZETTE INC ,   549 COLLEGE PARK RD #-B LADSON SC 29456-3200 ,   803-572-0511

Now who is in charge of requesting advertising for the FSP??

Actually, it was a request from the board that the pledge be in the ad.

I found a freebie paper down there, that runs over the entire area that will run it 1/2 page for ~$230. 8)

I agree that the pledge should be deleted from the ad.  Get them to the website before we hit them with the fact that we're asking them to move five hundred miles north.  

The ad looks great, Jim.  The BOD should move on this ASAP.  Like, tonight.  Let's see how fast the BOD can move.

Nice job Jim!  Nothing like laying a little truth on the folks!  If we can get them thinking, then it is just a matter of time!

Would suggest a follow up add, perhaps next week, doesn't need to be as large, but find it helpful to remind the folks! ;)

Nice job.  Will the photo and graphic transfer well to black and white newspaper?  Is the ad "copy-ready?"  Forget waiting, SC is in my area of the country, and I'll put my money where my mouth is.  I'll put up $115 for the ad if someone else will put up the other $115.

Does the FSP have money in the coffers for it?  I wish I still had a positive cash flow to help this one out!

Here's another item that we might want to advertise about:

http://www.shreveporttimes.com/html/AE0F03BF-76FC-4300-8564-695F1898F37C.shtml

Yup, a girl was expelled from high school for a year for...get this...Advil possession.

I got woken up this morning by a call from AP, wanting to do a story on us.... And I mentioned this advertising idea. She called me back a few mins later, saying that they were doing a whole seperate story just on the notion of us doing "shadow advertising". She also said I gave a great quote, though I was too tired to remember it. Something like "Whenever governments step outside their constitutional bounds, they need to be aware that we can be right on their tails to recruit citizens from under their jurisdiction". :)
A little bit of paid advertising like this can generate a whole lotta press. :D
