A Place for Cafe Refugees and Others Like Them

Fight The Crazy!

Recently I had an idea that maybe, just maybe, we could beat John Boehner and not only might that help us keep a majority in the house in the midterm elections but it also might boost morale among democrats, liberals, etc.

I also wanted to do something about this so-called enthusiasm gap the media keeps pushing that is supposed to be ‘the’ reason that the media and pundits give for saying the democrats will supposedly lose control of the house and perhaps the senate.

So I mentioned an idea I had to do this and a friend suggested I just create a facebook page and offered to help administer it. So here I send a BIG Thank You! and Shout Out! To Lis B.  And with her encouragement I took action.

I created the following basic message that I started adding to my comments on TPM and Huffington Post as a means to get some attention directed toward the page:

Fight the Crazy!

Please ‘like’ and help us get the word out on this facebook page to defeat John Boehner and Hold the House!

http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Kick-John-Boehner-Out-Of-Congress-Hold-The-House/149196308454642

Spread some enthusiasm! Pass it On. Thanks.

As of writing this we have 586 people who have ‘liked’ our page. People have thanked me, donated, got a little fired up, decided to volunteer etc. We have links on the page about defeating John Boehner and why that is possible. We have links to other organizations where one might volunteer or get more involved including links to the upcoming rallies in DC. Together we created a wave of enthusiasm.

One of the most frequent replies I got to posting this in comments was that people liked the slogan ‘Fight The Crazy!’ Unfortunately Huffington Post and TPM moderators decided I was spam and banned me from continuing to comment.

So now I am writing this blog to try to keep the wave of enthusiasm going. I need your help to do that. If you have facebook and have not yet ‘liked’ our page, please do, so we know that you are involved and share it with friends. In the effort to get fired up and spread enthusiasm knowing that others are in it with you definitely helps. Remember that if you help two friends get fired up to take some action and they help two friends get excited about ‘fighting the crazy’ and so on and so on… that creates a wave that makes anything possible.

I am also creating an email containing the same info and links that we have on that facebook page that can be sent to people who don’t have facebook. If you would like to receive that email please send an email to defeatjohnboehner@yeswecan.com and put the words ‘Fight The Crazy’ in the subject line.

We are also now @fightthecrazy on twitter.

A LOT of People Doing A Little Can Make A BIG Difference! Thanks! 🙂

  1. Ha. Great. Joining now!

  2. Joined. I find it ironic that TPM would ban you from commenting. You were just a blog contributor for how long? Maybe it is just a computer program that automatically does it but wow. Thanks to you and Lis for starting this!

    • Well, I emailed them to try to find out why they did it, what that was about and I did not get response. I think where TPM is concerned, I just don’t matter… I am spam, lol.

  3. Thanks for the shout out, Synch, but I haven’t done HALF as much as you have in regards to the site. I can’t thank you enough for all the hard work you’ve put into this. It’s great to see you so fired up and I love watching that enthusiasm spread. Keep it up.

    Fight the Crazy!

  4. I am stuck on this idea. For this is my country; to have and to hold.

    And others are claiming that this is our country but if things do not go our way, we are ready to fold.
