Tomorrow (Thursday), we're organizing an event in Annandale to highlight the GOP's extensive ties to Big Oil. We've invited the media, and having a good crowd is critical to show them that voters don't want oil industry gimmicks, they want real solutions like alternative energy to solve our energy crisis.

Dear MoveOn member, Republicans have been escalating their attacks on Obama and the Democrats over oil drilling, and we need to push back. Can you join us at an emergency action in Annandale tomorrow (Thursday)? House Republicans have been "protesting" ever since Congress adjourned on Friday because Speaker Pelosi blocked their offshore drilling plan. Speaker Pelosi blocked their plan because it won't help lower gas pricesbut it will line the pockets of Big Oil executives, the same people donating millions of dollars to Republicans. But Republicans are working hard to make it seem like they're fighting for cash-strapped commutersand not the oil companies that want to drill the most. So tomorrow (Thursday), we're organizing our own action to highlight the GOP's extensive ties to Big Oil, and deliver a petition to our representatives calling for a big switch to clean energy. We've invited the media, and having a good crowd is critical to show them that voters don't want oil industry gimmicks, they want real solutions like alternative energy to solve our energy crisis. Can you make it? Here are the details: What: Petition Delivery to Stop Big Oil Gimmicks and Demand Clean Energy Where: Tom Davis' Annandale Office (in Annandale) When: Thursday, Aug. 7, 2008, at 12:00 PM. RSVP: http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/event.html?event_id=48663&id=13412-6506593-QWfMi2x&id=13412-6506593-QWfMi2x&t=3 The event is sure to be a lot of fun. We'll tell the media and the Republicans that voters aren't buying their oil industry scams. Together, we'll deliver hundreds of thousands of signatures from voters who're demanding real solutionsrenewable and clean energy sources. Republicans have been dominating the debate around gas prices for weeks with their sham drilling plan. Oil drilling is a gimmick, and the only reason they're pushing for it is because their donors in the oil industry want it. Their latest stunt is getting a lot of press coverage. But no one has challenged their ridiculous arguments, so we have to. Here are few key facts about oil drilling: It's a gimmick. The US only has 1.6% of the world's oil. And drilling could take over a decade or more to produce any oil.1 It won't lower gas prices. Even after a decade-long wait the price will barely drop a few cents per gallon.1 America knows drilling won't work. According to a recent poll, 54% of poll respondents said they did not believe more drilling would lower gas prices. And 63% said opening up public lands to oil and gas drilling is more likely to enrich oil companies than to lower gas prices for American consumers.2 Voters are ready for real solutions. The public overwhelmingly believes (76%!) that policymakers should focus on investing in new energy technologies including renewable fuels and more efficient vehicles rather than expanding exploration and drilling for more oil.2 Tomorrow, we'll call out the Republican stunt and remind the media and the Republicans that voters want real solutionsnot oil drilling. Can you join us tomorrow in Annandale? http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/event.html?event_id=48663&id=13412-6506593-QWfMi2x&id=13412-6506593-QWfMi2x&t=4 Thanks for all you do.

Northern Virginia has become polluted with people from DC and Montgomery counties who don't want to pay the taxes they voted for any more. He's a prime target for removal and could use the support.
The Big Protest Industry leaders will not be pleased with this heads-up.
Where are all of the “right” crazies when we need them?

Capital Research Center "Foundation Watch" has published a two-part series on atheist and one-worlder George Soros and his financial support of MoveOn.org, a leftist web site dedicated to the election of John Kerry as the next president.
The CRC notes that MoveOn.org is actually three different organizations: a nonprofit educational group; a lobbying organization; and a political action committee. Soros and other millionaire liberals have poured as much as $15 million into this group. MoveOn.org also gets money from the Iraq Peace Fund and other left-leaning foundations.

Make sure you write all of your post down as it would make a wonderful protest sign against the propagandists of Moron.org! :)

86% of all statistics are made up on the spot!
They crowd the streets a tad the merchants association will have the Fairfax police out there ~ else the demonstrators are in a lot of trouble.
I really hate it when ignorant white outside agitators try to come to this part of town and tell us how to lead our lives ~
Davis already announced his retirement so he’s no one’s target, but will probably be replaced by a Dem which I’m beginning to think his district (mine) deserves.
Do these moonbats realize just how stupid this statement is?
If there's no oil offshore, there will be no addition to the supply and it will cost the oil companies to drill, not line their pockets. But this is a bad thing because the oil companies will waste their money and hire people for no return?!?!?!
If there is oil offshore, there will be additional supplies and gas prices will drop with additional supplies. But this is a bad thing because the oil companies will make money?!?!?!?
uh, Tom Davis is RETIRING after this term. . .
The moonbats aren’t invading hostile ideological territory when they occupy Davis’ office. Wouldn’t surprise me if they’d actually been invited.

They better be protesting Obama because he said we have 3% of the world's oil.
The moonbats are showing America how retarded they really are. 75% of Americans want drilling and it's not because politicians tell us we want drilling, it's because most Americans have common sense.
StopMoving.org begins its anti-energy push.
‘And drilling could take over a decade or more to produce any oil.’
And what do they have to offer that will give immediate and permanent reduction of prices?
