    1. How wonderful!!

    I applaud your efforts and consider that a great idea; we will have need to spread our messages especially if information becomes restricted.   But, you have been doing this already…this is awesome!!  Thank you!!

      2. thank you

      I encourage you and everyone to do it too.

      the breakroom drop is the most fun. I can observe the conversations and confrontations they stir up……and add a bit of topspin occaisionally.

      :lol:

    3. An excellent idea.

    I did this during the Bush years as well, but slacked off because of my oldest’s health issues and trying to get her diagnosed. Now seems like the perfect time to start back.

    5. I did this a bit when I was involved in animal rights –

    I (discreetly) left leaflets in bus and subway seats, supermarket carts (on top of groceries), doctor waiting rooms….   This was back in the late 1980’s B.C. (Before Computers) soo.. – see this WWII era cartoon:

    6. +100. Just finished a video claiming that under Trump it may be that

    it will become more dangerous to speak one’s mind, and people should study the methods used by dissidents in less open societies as it may come this way.

    I always thought that the reason ‘they’ ‘allowed’ protest in the first place was because it really didn’t make any difference if a few malcontents protested, as long as most people got their payoff — a car, a vacation, food, clothing, a house and some savings for the kiddies, some medical and social security.

    But when people no longer get their payoff, the repression comes out.  we shall see.

    I’d note that these days if they want to find someone doing this they can check the paper type/lot, copier etc. to some extent.  Buy with cash while you still can.
