Telemarketing For America (TFA)

The good little lapdogs of (Community) Organizing For America (never forget the “CO” in ACORN is “Community Organizations”) will be coming to a phone near you, probably right around dinner time.  See, you need to be reminded to get in line and support the Obama effort, in whatever shape or form that may be.  Let’s take a look at how many “volunteers” are signing on to be involved:

Here’s a snapshot of what would appear a fairly large operation, at least you’d think.
Colorado Democratic Party Office (Denver, CO)
777 Santa Fe Dr
Denver, CO 80204
Your energy is needed more than ever to help OFA reach out to our neighbors in gathering support for the President’s three principles for real health reform. Reform and change is within our reach–we can’t let fear overcome our strongest, most honest hopes for comprehensive change in our health system. THIS IS OUR TIME, RIGHT NOW!

Even if you have only an hour to spare—your efforts will help OFA connect with people that we may not have been able to reach. Every bit helps our cause–so do not hesitate-ACT NOW!

Odds are, if you’re reading this blog (as in your typical, average, non-U.S. hating American) you probably won’t be getting this call – this is more of a preaching to the choir kind of thing.  But I guess anything is possible, our local OFA contingent has been in the paper here recently and occasionally speak at City Council.

They’ll be calling you with a prepared script, maybe you should have your own!  Think of it like a candid camera (oh yeah, record it!) or that MTV show “Punk’d” and have a little discussion with them.  Use your imagination, maybe things like:

  • Why are you interrupting my dinner?
  • Does it hurt to have your own thoughts and spine ripped out?
  • Did you always blindly follow marching orders, or did you at one time think for yourself?
  • Didn’t the early days of the Nazi movement also “rally” their troops like this?
  • At what point do you question if what you’re doing is right?
  • Why do you hate your country so much that you’d just blindly go along with just about anything for the “cause”?
  • Are you on drugs, or in need of some?
  • No habla ingles.
  • Would you be my friend?
  • Where can we meet to discuss this?  Dark alley around late o’ clock?
  • Who are you?  Who sent you?  Are you with the government?!
  • What about healthcare for prairie dogs?  No, I’m not joking.

Have fun with it, the possibilities are endless.  Maybe you’ll bring a little smile to a fairly miserable bunch of people.  Remember, they won!  They control all branches of our government.  Yet why do they seem more miserable than ever?  Food for thought.
