This ‘Recess Rally’ Makes No Damn Sense (Updated!)

Updated: Apr 14

So there’s something called an Arkansas Recess Rally, in which organizers are trying to round up people to go to their Congressional member’s office and protest government run health care. Here’s the pitch:

If you believe your liberty, your hard earned money and your way of life is under attack through dangerous healthcare legislation currently being proposed, get to your local Representative office on August 22nd and make sure he/she knows.

But the thing is, these rallies are slated for tomorrow, which is a Saturday. And I can’t believe I have to point this out, it’s not all that likely that the representatives or their staffs are even going to be hanging around on a Saturday, is it?

So people are just going to stand around outside empty office buildings, chanting and waving signs? OK, man, whatever, if that’s how you wanna piss away your weekend. It’s your life.

UPDATE: Driving along University Avenue on Saturday around noon, saw about 30 people alongside the street outside Rep. Vic Snyder’s office in the  Prospect Building, waving signs and having a generally fine time.
