From Mythusmage Opines, in it's entirety:|
August 22, 2005Good idea. I have plenty of red to wear, beginning this Friday. Join up.
Subject: RED FRIDAYSI got the above from Gary Gygax on the Gygax Games mailing list (Yahoo). I'm presenting it here in the hope it spreads around the blogosphere and inspires folks to wear red on Friday. Red shirts, red caps , red hats, red pants, red shoes, so on and so forth. Let's show the media how many we are, and tell them where we stand.
You will soon see a lot of people wearing Red on Fridays. Here's why.....
The Americans who support our troops are the silent majority. We are not "organized" to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, and all their friends, simply want to recognize that Americans support our troops. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every red-blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED. Word of mouth, press, TV -- let's see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of red much like a home football game at a University. If every one of our memberships shares this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee! That it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED. and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear Red! So let's get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays.
I sent this out to everyone on my email list; hopefully, you will too.
Wear Red on Fridays ...
SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Since the old cold war slogan of 'Better dead than red' has been hijacked by some mealy-mouthed lefties, lets use, instead, Better RED than dead!
