Guest Editorial : This is a Conspiracy!

Notice to all Minions, groupies, and trolls of StraightUpWithSherri!

We don't have George Soros funding us, so we need you.

jlfintx had promised you an announcement on Sunday, March 6. To wit,

Sherri, for all your faithful readers, I have possible announcement early this week and would like them to tune in. It is about the upcoming March 18 deadline on Terri Schiavo, so I ask everyone to check in here Monday through Wednesday especially.

Furthermore, Sherri mentioned this to RWNJ early Thursday,

Talked to my Dad this morning-- he is going to check his balance on his sky miles and may help me fly down to Tallahassee for the Terri Rally on Sunday.....

Step right up and lend us your ears.
Here it is:

We need to send Sherri to Tallahassee to fight for Terri.

Therefore, jlfintx has offered a seed money contribution of $300. His intention is that this money be matched dollar for dollar to provide Sherri with travel expenses from Georgia to Florida. Not being great travelers ourselves, we have little idea what it will really cost. His intended goal is a minimum of $700.

There are two things that we ask:

First, if you believe that Sherri has been doing a terrific job and should go to Tallahassee, please contribute something. Even a single dollar is very important. It says you care and you want to help. It will make you feel better, too.

Second, post a little comment to this thread. Even if you post anonymously (and that’s certainly okay), leave some little nic (nickname) at the bottom just to identify yourself. Heck, you can even make up a brand new one just for this list; you don’t even need to register it. We want to provide Sherri with a meaningful collection of supporters. We know that sometimes she feels like a voice crying in the wilderness. Let’s prove to Sherri that this is not the case.

Sherri keeps telling us that she is taking time off . This may just force her to do so. The classic “working vacation” is in order.

Due to time constraints, we have elected to use Sherri's Tip Jar PayPal account.

(This can be found in the right hand margin beneath Sherri's Profile)

As initial signatories to this conspiracy, we are:

  • Well, I have taken the leap of faith and submitted the $300 "seed" money and I feel great. Also, beings that I lost my job this week (temporarily) and am on some fragile ground, I firmly believe in what Sherri is doing, so please, please help however you can. Give up a paper and read it online for a week or two and let's get Sherri to Florida so she can see hopefully the fruit of her consistent fight for Terri. She deserves nothing less.

  • jlfintx:
    Thank you for the seed money. I understand the roughness of being unemployed. I've been that way for too long. However, some causes are worthy of our greatest efforts. Therefore, I have added to your seed. Since we want to double the kitty, I have added another $50. Let's get Sherri down to Tallahhassee so she can spread her charm and work her magic (and maybe get some rest, NOT).

  • Mr. Nut Job provided me with a street address where you get mail to which I have posted a check. If you e-mail me, I'll tell you how much so you can keep a running total.

  • Judge Greer ruled that DCF will not get the 60-day stay for the removal of the feeding tube and their investigation.

    I'll definitely contribute; help is need even more now since DCF was turned down, time is running out.

    (tap, tap, tap.....tap, tap....)

    HELLO.... testing...

  • Levi and RWNJ, I think us three are all that have contributed; is there not one other helping hand?

    Really sad.

  • Please let me apologize to anyone trying to post comments.

    I have received emails saying people have tried to, but cant.

    I have no idea what is going on with Blogger right now- but as I understand it- if you sign in- (create an account) you can leave comments. IT IS FREE! and you DON'T have to CREATE a blog to do this...

    I think RWNJ, Levi, or jlfintx can leave intructions in another comment on how to do this.

    THERE are people who are donating that have not left comments..

    The $5 and $25 dollars donations are EXCELLENT AND APPRECIATED!


    I AM BEYOND WORDS-- which is RARE for me.

    THe hotel arrangments are quite pricey of course due to it being a weekend and many others coming in- so this is helping greatly!

    If you don't see the ticker change that is keeping track of the amount donated once you have made a donation- don't be alarmed- it may take a while to get them up.




    and THANK YOU!

    Actually, the only one who could post a comment (registered or not) was the system administrator - That's YOU, Sherri. Which is why your test worked. It was all Blogger-powered sites. It was fixed, but appears broken again.
    I have updated the counter. This is still something that must be done manually. jlfintx : the inability to get the comments and emails properly done - made it look worse than it was. Still the challenge stands. Giving warms your heart.

  • Hey, the comments are working!

    Sherri, good luck in Tallahassee! I'll be praying for Terri.

  • How about that tracker. Is it stuck at $850? Come on friends, open your hearts and your wallets.
