We had our Bardstown Rd, Farmer's Market Phone A Thon on Sat. Pam and I set up in front of the market with our ironing board and information. We got people's attention by asking them if they would like to help impeach Dick Cheney. That would bring them over to the table, and then we explained HR 333 and begin to dial for them to leave a message for Rep Yarmuth. Well, this seemed to really intimidate them....They seemed to be afraid to leave a message and had obviously never called before. To say the least, I was surprised. Sooo, we decided to push the faxes, and people seemed much more comfortable with that. We got a lot of faxes and hopefully Rep Yarmuth will get the message to sign onto HR333!

We had a great time at the Code Pink Dessert Party last week at Tyler Park. There were some familar faces and a lot of new ones. Everyone was passionate about doing actions and focusing on impeachment. We plan on doing several Phone A Thons with the focus on our local Congressman and Senators.
Thank you to all the Pinks that came out and for the yummy desserts!!!
Hi everyone, Here are a few pictures from last week's get-together at Tyler Park. I felt like it was a good time just hanging out and meeting each other. Thanks to everyone for coming. I'm glad we have some upcoming actions to look forward to. Oh, one thing I forgot to mention while talking about freeway blogging is that Scarlet has a website and blog.
