Alert: America Runs Out Of Pink Paper

PinkDoctwoIt is always a good day when the economy is being stimulated by the  necessity for the manufacture of pink paper for pink slips for the Congress.  You have to wonder what is going to happen when an organization with millions of members joins the petition drive.

Last week, suppliers of paper to the campaign reported the campaign had completely tapped the nation’s supply of 8.5 x 11 inch pink paper. As the last full pallet of pink paper was delivered to the printer, new supplies had to be ordered and manufactured.

Here is the whole story, and H/T to ready Kathy for lighting a fire in comments to get me to write this post!

Reinforcements coming for ‘pink slips’ campaign
American Family Association to join effort to warn Congress

WASHINGTON – As the first 2.5 million “pink slips” make their way to Congress, warning representatives and senators they will not be returned to office if they continue to flout American values, reinforcements are on their way.

The powerful American Family Association will begin promoting the campaign beginning Friday, according to Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND.

In just 11 days, the campaign to send “pink slips” to Congress has resulted in an unprecedented and historic effort that has generated more than 2.5 million individually addressed notices to all members of the House and Senate – proving, once again, that Americans are mobilized to take action to stop Washington’s plans for bigger, more expensive and more intrusive government.

The “pink slips” specifically warn that senders will oppose in the next election any member of Congress who votes for more spending, intrusive legislation that restricts personal freedom and more big government programs.

WND announced the “Send Congress a Pink Slip” campaign just 11 days ago with a stated goal of 5 million notices, individually addressed, personalized with sender’s name and address and delivered to all members of Congress by Fed Ex.

“I just confirmed with top officials at the American Family Association that they will be enlisting millions of their own members to support this effort,” said Farah. “If there were any doubts about the impact of this campaign on Congress before, I think they will soon be dispelled.”

Last week, suppliers of paper to the campaign reported the campaign had completely tapped the nation’s supply of 8.5 x 11 inch pink paper. As the last full pallet of pink paper was delivered to the printer, new supplies had to be ordered and manufactured.

“It’s our version of a stimulus program,” said Farah.

“We set a goal of 5 million pink slips to members of Congress,” she said. “It looks like we were too conservative in our projections. We will likely surpass that goal. I’m sure this has never been done before – and we’re just getting started. This is unprecedented. It’s a new record for getting the attention of Congress in such a short span of time.”

Porter said the highest priority of members of Congress is re-election. The campaign is designed to put them on notice their hopes of staying in Washington are fading fast.

“There is a revolution brewing across this country,” she said. “People are angry about losing their country and they are ready for action. This campaign is just the latest evidence.”

“I believe this is already the most successful grass-roots effort in history,” said Porter. “After all the town halls and tea parties and the massive demonstration in Washington, Congress still hasn’t gotten the message. Now it’s time to show them just how serious we are with a message aimed at what they most care about – getting re-elected.”

The “pink slip” officials are getting is a warning that they work for the taxpayers. It lists four key issues that are deemed unacceptable to participants.

  • government health care
  • cap and trade
  • “hate crimes”
  • any more spending

“If you vote for any of these, your real pink slip will be issued in the next election,” it warns.

The program permits participants to Fed Ex 535 individually addressed messages to members of Congress, each one with the name and address of the sender for a total price of $29.95.

Bad Behavior has blocked 1078 access attempts in the last 7 days.
