Join us tomorrow, Tuesday 2 August 2011!
Here's video of last week's protest in front of Jack "Flag Pin" Kingston's office in Valdosta, Lowndes County, Georgia.
Only five people, you say? Thing is: nobody can remember anybody ever protesting at Kingston's office. We start where we stand.

Jack Kingston voted for all seven debt limit increases under W.
He voted for both of Bush's wars and he voted for Bush's tax cuts for the rich, causing the current debt "crisis". Now he opposes raising the debt limit and wants cuts to social programs! We protest that!
His staffer came out to say he knew we were there.  Talking to LCDP chair Gretchen Quarterman, she added, "and he knows who you are."

Join us tomorrow!

LCDP is the Lowndes County Democratic Party.  This was not a formal event of the LCDP, but Gretchen Quarterman is its chair and Jim Parker is its Treasurer, so there is some overlap.
Join us tomorrow, high noon, at Jack's office!

Jack Kingston GA-01
3470-C North Valdosta Road
Valdosta, GA 31602
Phone: (229) 247-9188
Fax: (229) 247-9189

If you can't come, you can call or fax his office.
If you're in some other district, your House member also has a local office, or telephone.
Another video:

Lots of thumbs-up from passing motorists, and no opposition from them.
Jack's landlord did come out to tell us about his conspiracy-theory LTE, but he was civil and harmless.
More pictures in the flickr set.
Come on in, the water's fine!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    which is as red as red gets.

    I live there, but am in DC for the summer.  The fact that anybody is protesting here is incredibly good news.  If½ of the folks blasting Obama for the debt ceiling thing were to support groups like this, we might get a congress in 2012 we can be proud of.
