Some of you have probably already seen this, but I know there are some who rarely spend time in the cesspit that is "general", so this is for your benefit:

Send a brick to DC

I am very tempted to invest ~$10 on this...

Oh, and the website is up.

Do you have to put the Brick in a box?

why not fly to D.C. and run up to the white house and throw it over the big black fence

I was looking for the video of the guy with an AK shooting at people by the fence in front of the white house a few years back, there were SS and capitol police on him in seconds

I just sent a Dildo to DC.

It symbolizes them fucking us up the ass!

You woke up in your cubical with a funny headache, weird taste in your mouth and your underwear around your ankles?

I used to live outside of DC.

You could, every once in a while, hear the Apache helicopter that patrols the Maryland side of the Captiol area.

I worked in Falls Church, and about once every other day, the Chevy Suburban Secret Service caravan 4 cars long would go racing down the side streets, lights flashing.

If I can remember my Salem addresses that would be one of the loony bins wouldn't it?

It sounds like fun but I doubt it would do much good -- I doubt Wu would change party ideology over a piece of masonry.

Wu might surprise you. He has voted against party lines more than once.
For a Democrat, he's actually not too bad (IMHO).

Anyway, its not just the bricks that land on his desk that matter. If enough people take this up the thousands of tons of bricks getting carried into DC will make a statement that will be difficult to miss.
This is one way that those of us who have real jobs and don't have the time to demonstrate in the streets can make a tangible statement.

Its also a lot less easy to ignore a million or so bricks than it is e-mails, faxes or even paper mail.
They say paper mail is better than a fax, which is better than e-mail -- so think what a brick counts for

I got in my truck this afternoon, and the first thing that came on the radio was Lars Larson talking about sending bricks to Washington. Made my day. This thing is spreading fast!



ETA: Just bought five bricks from Home Depot.
One for Blumanauer (like he cares)
One for Wyden (He probably doesn't care either),
One for Smith (He'd better care).
One for Bush (Doubt it will get to him)
One probably to send to the RNC...

good stuff guys, you don't have to box them, you can just write the address on them with a sharpie.
I think it would make quite the statement if they started getting enough bricks to build a house.

The USPS also sells flat rate shipping boxes, so you could fit 2-3 bricks in one box for $7-8...

I don't have any bricks, can I just send a can of Lard?

Not sure thats a good idea. Postage won't adhere to a brick very well, what if the brick gets broken in half during "handling", probably best to use a flat rate envelope.

So long as you attach a note explaining that its to help them when their constituents come to put their bricks where they belong if they don't start to earn their money.
