Ok everyone you are going to think I have lost it but here goes :).
Valentines day is coming up very soon. My chapter is just starting up and we have not got very organized yet. So we decided that we are going to do a wacky random run event. We are going to get as many valentine cards as we can before Vday. Then we are going to hit every fast food, shop, store, park, and so on. We will be giving out valentines to everyone working that we can.
These people are working, feeding, and selling crap to everyone while they wish they were with their loved one having fun. So we are going to get fun, lovable, and just have a great time giving out these cards.
I know we can not solicit with information, so I'm working out a way around this. If anyone has some ideas let me know.
I DARE YOU TO DO IT TOO! What better day to do it? Plus if the press picks it up wow that would even be better! Zeitgeist sends out love on a massive scale for Vday! You can still do it even if you don't have a chapter yet!
Plus it's cheap! About 30 cards for a dollar! You can't beat that!
Maybe at the bottom of the card you could just add something like "brought to you by your friends at tzmpa.com (or The Zeitgeist Movement)".
I think we can get away with that. I think we are going to do something like:
TO: You, because only you can change the world.
TO: You, because everyone matters.
FROM: tzmpa.com Make a difference.
Not sure yet we are working on it though.
Thinking of making a spin off project of this like flat Stanley, but use the earth and a sub domain with project site. I better think about it later, too much going on right now.
Hello to all of you and I have joined TZM as of today !
Some DVD's were given to me some time ago and I have been watching them over and over. This is the organization that I choose....this I can relate to !
I recall my dad telling me four decades ago that "civilization needs to live "into" the environment instead of against it." Few people can grasp that and I am grateful for his lessons.
I am curious about and anxious to discover the local Pa. chapter of TZM. As an electrical contractor and citizen, it has been all too obvious of the failings of consumerism. During the past 25 years we have built sprawl...little more than that....so what..we have a lot of stuff and traffic jams.
A number of years ago my wife died in an auto accident. It took some time for me to gather myself up and figure out what I want to do with the remainder of my life. With a strong sense of planetary ecology... some how I found TZM.
Currently I am educating myself on photovoltaic systems. It will be very fullfilling to install electrical equipment that generates clean and renewable energy as opposed equipment designed to facilitate the consumption of electricity.
In all fairness, for many years, I have been... for the most part, in a state of resignation. I think I know every right-wing conservative and have been frustrated with the direction that the human race is headed. It seems everyone is oblivious to it.
I have read quite a bit on climate change since the mid 1990's. I think the atmosphere is a fascinating part of the life support systems on this planet... with or without anthropocentric forcings.
We live in amazing times where their is enough knowledge to intelligently choose a sustainable direction. There is also some large machinery at work driven by ill designed economies of scale.
Note to self: " Time to stop complaining and get in action. It is equally possible to have a world that works as one that does not. It is purely a choice on our behalf."
The mere existence of TZM is the most encouraging entity I have found.
Recently I have been inquiring into the the so-called skeptics of global warming...the "denial contrarians." Who are they, what specifically is their case based upon etc.?
One interesting find was " The Oregon Petition" which alledgedly has the signitures of tens of thousands of scientists who claim that climate change is a hoax...imagine that ! The conservative radio talk show circuit and Fox News has held this as evidence. The all too gullible listening audience takes the bait, hook, line and sinker and begin chanting "Socialism... Socialism... Socialism !!!". The petition is a fraud and wouldn't you just know it...I can not locate the actual document itself. They boast of it yet they will not display it...I find that just a tad odd...comes as no surprise though !!!
There is war on science. It's time for a new conversation.
As stated in the film, " The Revolution is Now"
Thank all of you for being who you are,
It is great that you have found something that fits your mind set. Many people have not yet seen or heard of TZM. The main goal of TZM is awareness. We hope you will help us in creating global awareness. Thank you for joining and encouraging us all.
How'd it go?
It went well, we got out about 300. We only had a couple of people who were just grumps. We even chased down a mail man laughing. It was cute actually, my daughter in law is about 8 months pregnant and she was determined to give the mailman a valentine. She was pretty tired out after that.
I had some great people with me. I got some pics but I need to get them uploaded still. I have been swamped since the day after valentines. Finally got a short break today to clean the house. I think I will be done with this project in about 10 days. I can't wait to take a break and move on to something new.
Hope everything going good for everyone else!
I HAVE to do this next year!
