Protest THIS SATURDAY at Sen. Lindsey Graham’s Rock Hill Office, Sat. 4/24, 1:00 pm

April 23, 2010

PATRIOTS:

The FreedomWorks organization (  www.freedomworks.org )  has coordinated a statewide event to rally at all of Senator Lindsey Graham’s regional offices to protest his partnering with Democrat Senator John Kerry and Independent Joe Lieberman to basically reinvent what we’ve known as “Cap & Trade.”  They call it:

Kerry-Graham-Lieberman “American Power Act”

The rally will begin at 1:00 pm, on Saturday, April 24, at Senator Graham’s Piedmont Regional Office in Rock Hill, 140 E. Main Street.

Protesters are encouraged to bring posters and signs that reference their concerns with the Cap & Trade initiatives.  Please keep your signs dignified and respectful.   It is important that we maintain our integrity and credibility.

We also understand that this event conflicts with some of the activities going on with the Viet Nam Veterans Welcome Home Ceremony which is going on from 8 – 3 on Saturday as well.  The timing of the Graham protest was arranged by Freedom Works.  We believe we will have enough people out on Saturday to make a good showing at both events.  They are only about a mile apart so it’s feasible to be involved in both events.

FreedomWorks has distributed the following information to familiarize us with the problems they see with this piece of legislation that our Senator is sponsoring:

  • The Legislation includes a “Fuels’ Fee” that is in fact a $.27 Tax per Gallon of Gasoline.
  • The Bill is really just another Cap and Trade Scheme in disguise.
  • It’s a jobs killer in the industrial Midwest and across the country.
  • It’s an energy tax, hitting the poor and middleclass the hardest.
  • It creates a brand new government slush fund for Washington to spend.
  • It’s the largest tax increase ever.
  • It will needlessly export more American jobs to China, India, and other countries.
  • It will do nothing to impact global climate temperatures.

I have also copied below a newsletter FreedomWorks sent out announcing the Senator Graham Protests, and the reasons they find this bill troublesome to the American People.  This newsletter also lists the location of rallies planned at Senator Graham’s other South Carolina offices, as well as the contact person for each rally.  Please feel free to forward this information on to friends and family in the other regions who might want to participate in Saturday’s protest.

Attached to this email is a petition that FreedomWorks has designed to use at these rallies to gather names of citizens that oppose Senator Graham’s position on this critical issue.  Please print it and either bring it to the rally to get signatures, or, get signatures from your friends and neighbors.  You can either email your petitions to the address at the bottom of the petition, or, if you prefer, we will be collecting signed petitions at the rally.

The Cap & Trade Bill, under the guise of protecting the environment, is another blatant attack on US citizens by the liberal progressives to redistribute the American wealth.  The insignificance of human impact on our environment has never been more evident as in the past two weeks, when the whole world was crippled by mother nature’s omnipotent power as she deposited tons and tons sulfur dioxide (acid rain) into our atmosphere, which is toxic to plants, animals and humans.

I urge you to stay informed and stay involved.  Please check our website often as we are

adding new information on a continual basis.

Hope to see you on Saturday.

Regards,

Joe

GRASSROOTS TO GRAHAM: NO CAP AND TRADE!

Join a Protest Near You on Saturday, April 24

As you probably know by now, Senator Graham (R-SC) has teamed up with Senators Kerry (D-MA) and Liebermann (I-CT) to unveil their own version of cap-and-trade in sheep’s clothing next week. This new energy tax bill was crafted over months behind closed doors, and only special interest lobbyists could pry out any details.

What we do know is this: making energy more expensive hurts the economy, sends jobs overseas, and all for negligible environmental benefit. We also know it is clear that poor and middle class taxpayers aren’t among the big corporations that are getting any special favors or subsidies and will be hit hardest by plans like a “Fuels’ Fee” that tacks on 27 cents per gallon of gasoline!

We need you to invite a friend and join us to protest this massive tax hike outside Senator Graham’s district offices all across South Carolina this Saturday, April 24 from 1pm- 2pm. These coordinated protests should send a resounding “NO!” to Graham and make him think twice before he gets behind this bill next week.

Here’s where to be and the leaders who are coordinating each event:

Upstate Regional Office: 130 South Main Street, Greenville, SC 29601 (864) 250-1417 

Linda Weeks, 864-288-9744

I hope to see you on Saturday as we stand up together all across the state for our jobs and families. Thank you for helping us keep up the fight and for spreading the word. If you can’t be there Saturday, please be sure to call your district office and tell Senator Graham you oppose cap and trade.

Sincerely,

Allen Page

    This is more important than ever in a world where there are dozens of different audio formats.
    And once you have your own project that you want to promote,
    you must have considered the radio as one of the best alternatives to introduce your music
    to the crowds. Many people will be happy with replaceable batteries for home
    use and occasional outings.

    Take note that Edge – Rank, the Facebook News Feed optimization
    algorithm that determines what content or activities from your network is
    displayed on News feed, prefers visual content too. Create a “Custom HTML” module
    in the position you would like. All of the content
    on your Fan page is related to your business.

    Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a
    week, you should be strict with what you do so as not to inadvertently undo
    all your hard work for vegetarian weight loss. Authorities inside the area will need to have
    an intensive understanding of laboratory and labeling techniques,
    infection security precautions, appropriate blood attract approaches to the elderly and for
    infants and even more. Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you’re working to
    lose weight and keep it off.

    They want to win by playing their very best as opposed to winning by
    putting the other person off. The player who spins the coin is referred to as
    the spinner. This classic game integrates all-out entertainment with vocabulary
    enhancement in one amazing game.

    This is more important than ever in a world where there are dozens
    of different audio formats. They also apparently believe that their
    customers who like a particular song they hear on the radio, are
    likely to purchase that song, which could add to downloads from i
    – Tunes. But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because, being speech orientated,
    they’re more like what I do, so I can learn lots from them.

    This is because it gives you more precise targeting opportunities, lets you combine audio ads with synchronized banners and
    buttons to maximize visibility and retain attention,
    lets your listeners take an immediate action
    (after all, they are only a click away from your site) and puts you in control of your advertising campaign (you can pay the service provider on
    the basis of the actual number of impressions). Some models, if they are equipped with remote start,
    will allow the customer to start the engine through the app wirelessly, doing so from any place where there is a cell phone signal available.
    Closed at heels, all the interruptions of RJs too can be kept aside, thanks to odysseystreaming.

    During the summer of 2008 I started using internet radio to reach an even wider audience.
    Listening to Internet radio is a breeze for anyone who’s familiar with the World Wide Web. Back in the day, people had little choice but to take what was given to them as their “lot in life.

    This helps business managers to determine what the general public thinks
    about their products or services. As business owners recognize the swaying power of using audio to communicate the value and quality of their products and services, online audio will come of age in a big way.
    Having had my nearby store shut down recently I looked around
    for another place where I could get my gear from but unfortunately could not find any good outlets even
    remotely close to my home so started looking online.

    When it comes to fishing, some goes for fishing as an entertainment activity and many depends
    upon fishing for their livelihood. Spinning – Trout are aggressive and definitely
    will strike and eat smaller fish. When the water arrives
    at the inlet, most oxygen is dissolved because of the abrupt transformation
    of water movement.

    Believing that you are actually starving, it releases chemicals that actually make
    it harder to lose weight in an effort to conserve energy.
    It’s old news that tracking food intake could lead to losing a few pounds [2].
    Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.

    Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller portion sizes – morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner.
    Avocados- Although not my favorite, are high in fats, the good ones.
    Who does not need that little bit of elevation when trying to diet.
