When we talked about Occupying in the most effective manner with the fewest people some of you complained that we didn’t say where to deploy our 1 adult, 1 baby Occupying force. That’s because the best answer is Everywhere. Wherever people are, that’s the right place to show that you want those super-deadly rapid-fire weapons kept out of the hands of the murdering mad dogs and the simply crazies.
Of course, some places are better than others, and one of the best places you can Occupy is Congress.
I’m not talking about flying down to Washington, where Congress hides out when they’re not begging for your vote. That’s where everybody goes when they want to be involved in something they can tell their grandchildren about. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but since the grandchildren aren’t here yet they can’t change anything that’s going on. While what you want is to stop each weekend’s mayhem, right now.
That’s why you don’t have to go to Congress to Occupy it. You can just let them come to you.
You see, every last Senator or Representative in Washington maintains a home-state office, sometimes several of them in various parts of their home state or district. They are in places where a lot of people pass through. That constant exposure is what politicians want.
And, of course, so do you.
Those close-by strolls past the politician’s home office are really good places to ask a few questions, too. “Why do you support Concealed Carry, Madam Congresswoman?” Or, “Don’t you think the ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws might cause some people to argue to the point of violence instead of just walking away from an altercation?”
Anyway, it’s still summer and a pleasant time for a stroll. Some of your friends might want to join you. Come to that, you might even meet some new friends you didn’t know you had.
