Beyond Viral

can we do this? Yes, We Can!

so anyway, by now I'm sure everyone has seen this:




This little gem has been making it's was through the blogosphere for almost a week now, it has indeed "gone viral" on the inter-tube web-net thingie. But we can do so much more.....

Nearly every right-of-center blog that I frequent has had this pic or some variation thereof posted, and that's great. We're getting the word out.....to those who pay attention to the blogosphere....and practically no one else.

We all know people in real life who are "plugged in" to the political and social upheaval going on in our Country, but who wouldn't think of reading blogs, evah! We need to take the viral action to the streets.

I propose a simple plan: let's take it to the streets. Get this image out there, where everyone can be exposed to it, not just the bloggers and their readers.

Here's how it works:

  1. Download a copy of the poster. It shouldn't be too difficult to find one that suits you, you're welcome to lift it from Supply Side Politics (I shamelessly lifted it from Moxie, she has a link to Doc Weasel's excellent .pdf of the image.
  2. Print it off, and go find a color copier (one that you can use discreetly) and make as many copies as you feel you need / can afford.
  3. Put the picture up anywhere it will be seen by a lot of people.
  4. Repeat as often as necessary
A couple of words of caution: do not post this on any traffic signs or utility poles, as doing so is illegal in most jurisdictions. Private property (other than your own) is right out as well.

If possible, use a DIY color copier to avoid having the clerk freak right out; although, it would be all kinds of big fun to walk into the Kinkos here in The People's Republic of AnnArbor (AKA Moscow on the Huron) and drop this on the counter and ask for one hundred copies on card stock. Good times.....but I digress.

We can do this.

More soon.
