National media appearance
By Jim Babka
Accent Radio Network host Jerry Hughes welcomes me back for my regular Friday appearance.

This show is a great opportunity to spread the DC Downsizer message. Jerry's audience is getting to know me and that means they're getting to know Downsize DC.

So today's action item is simple. Please support this show. You can do so by listening, but especially by calling-in.

And it's important that DC Downsizers contact the show with a call or email. When you do it sends a message to the people in the media that bringing a guest from Downsize DC increases their listeners and callers. It creates what you might call, "buzz."

And that opens doors.

The toll-free call-in number is: 1-866-222-2368
If you're shy, the email is: Jerry at AccentRadio dot com

Time: 3:00 PM Eastern, 2:00 PM Central, 1:00 PM Mountain, Noon Pacific

Length: 1 hour
Host: Jerry Hughes
Show: Straight Talk w/ Jerry Hughes
Click on the CIL|On Demand button, right side of page. You'll need Winamp or Windows Media Player.

You can listen to the show in more than 20 markets. A complete list of "affiliates" is available at the website.

And speaking of radio, I'll be on Charles Heller's radio show in Arizona Sunday afternoon, as well as my own show, the Downsize DC Conference Call, brought to you by, the Marijuana Policy Project, and Gun Owners of America.

We'll send out a message on Sunday morning with the details of those two programs.

So once again, today's, as well as this weekend's AGGRESSIVE ACTION item is -- listen and call-in to Jerry Hughes, Charles Heller, and my show.

Finally, I want to remind you that we have a blog (with RSS feeds available) at And each week that Congress is in session, Downsize DC researcher James Leroy Wilson provides an update titled, "Last week in Congress." In these columns you can learn what bills were passed and how many pages long they were. Just reading a few of these reports by James makes it clear that they're not reading all their bills.

The most recent column can be read here.

Thank you,
