Obama’s Activist Agenda Includes Good Will

leave a comment »

I recently sent out this email to my listserv and Twitter regarding national ACORN activities last Saturday.

Obama’s citizen activist group, Organizing for America, is doing a nationwide canvassing and pledge this Saturday July 11. They are going to be all over. They’re going to be at the Goodwills in the following Central Florida locations: Michigan St., Orange Blossom Trail, Winter Garden, Winter Park, Apopka, Fern Park, Colonial Dr. Longwood, Oviedo, and Sanford. They will be on International Drive at Orlando Premium Outlets, Orlando Prime Outlets and Pointe Orlando. They will be at Sand Lake Farmer’s Market at Whole Foods Market, UCF, and Park Avenue in Winter Park. And last but not least they will do phone banks from offices in Maitland and Downtown Orlando.

Because of the short notice, I was not hopeful that anyone could do anything about this mass sabotage of passing NØbama’s health care debacle to those who are most taken in by the Messiah. But we had true patriots taking their own time to see that ACORN was stopped. Patty Redlich, President of the NW Orange Republican Women Federation sent me an update as to what one member of her group did to counter ACORN’s use of non-profit organizations to promote Obama’s destructive bill.

On Saturday, a group of ACORN (now called Organizing America) went to various Goodwill stores in Central Fla. Sharon [name withheld] visited one in Longwood and sure enough they had a booth set up. She went inside the Goodwill and explained her reasons for disagreeing with the healthcare plan: 1) it would hurt her children with disabilities, 2) elderly parents would not get the treatment that they need for cancer, etc. under the new program. She ask them to either have them leave or let her set up and tell about the reasons it isn’t a good program. The manager called her corporate headquarters to find out that Organizing for America did not have permission to have this. She went out and ask them to leave.

This is what one person can do….and should be a great example as to how we can stop this sort of thing peacefully. We will be having an “Elephant Forum” to discuss this as we will be faced with this over and over again between now and the election. In the meantime, if you see these groups around town (they will be operating under many different names!!!) please…peacefully…ask the managers that it be stopped by giving examples as to why it isn’t a good bill or ask if you can set up next to them and explain why it isn’t.

(In case you haven’t heard-ACORN has changed their name because of all the bad publicity and now people are aware of just what they are doing. They have been given billions of dollars by the Obama Administration, of our taxpayer money to operate under at least 300 different organizations)

Goodwill Industries International is the “world’s largest nonprofit providers of education, training, and career services for people with disadvantages.” There are more than 2300 Goodwill stores in the United States. Convenient access to America’s neediest and uneducated, who are most apt to believe the lies of this administration. Contact them and tell them that they can’t use their offices and store locations to become politically infiltrated by corrupt organizations.

How to contact Goodwill.

Find a local Goodwill store and talk to the Managers.

Give Goodwill your feedback:

Goodwill Industries International
15810 Indianola Drive
Rockville, MD 20855
Phone: (800) 741-0186
contactus@goodwill.org
Phone: +1 (301) 530 6500

One person can make a difference. This is something each of us can do. Goodwill has long been included in my budget for donations. Their participation in allowing their organization to be used for stealth propaganda purposes as supporting ObamaCare now makes me doubt that I will support Goodwill in the future.
