On Aug. 16, 2013, the Nashville chapter of the Tea Party Fire Ants and a sympathetic group each released separate balloon releases according to the plans outlined here.
Activity Advertisement, please share:
One release was in Nashville, the other in Murfressboro, Tennessee . Still awaiting all the videos, but street traffic in both Nashville and Murfressboro was dense and people seemed positively uplifted, laughing, clapping, cheering, and playing them them - eyes sparkling, smiles open wide, amidst much laughter, as though some heavy burden had been lifted from their shoulders. Yes, the truth has that effect. A few people took what they seemed to regard as a memento - a balloon itself. One person attached one to the side of his car with the "Obama's Birth certificate is fake" side facing out.
What's terrific is that the Hi-Float additive allows these balloons to travel - at 5 - 8 feet as prepared - for 2 weeks! The jet stream indicates a hard north-eastern flow last night and today at approx 8 miles per hour, so as of noon Saturday we estimated what part of the group of balloons which did not fall prey to accident to be within several miles, this way or that, to Danville, Kentucky, 192 miles away. As of this writing, about 12 hours later, they are probably headed in the dark toward Ohio/Pennsylvania, where by morning the occasional message is certain to surprise church goers in those states.
The genius in all this is that the message meets and exceeds "Advertising 101" - it will be blasted into the minds of everyone who sees them because the moment is surprising, colorful, entirely unique and extremely controversial. The crowd reactions prove it. A color, a balloon shape, a light moment where good memories flow, almost anything will trigger the memory and elicit a discussion of the message at home, store, party, pub, or online.
Your Congressional House Representative is back home until Sept 6. Those of you with activist leanings - especially the Overpasses To Impeach Obama people, should contact whichever balloon printing place you want and get going NOW. The instructions, followed beautifully and easily - and they said they had a blast doing it - by the Tennessee groups, are on this Benghazi-truth post:
