For anyone interested in lending a hand to President Obama, Organizing for America will stop in Augusta on Saturday as part of its nationwide “listening tours,” where supporters and volunteers talk about how to organize locally to support the president’s agenda.

The meeting will be held at 2 p.m. at Ma Fannie’s Kitchen, 1117 Laney Walker Blvd.

Organizing for America is a project of the Democratic National Committee. According to a news release, the group will also talk about “the best way to provide Americans with the tools to make their voices heard in Washington and help bring about the long-term change voters asked for so overwhelmingly last November.”

The tea party protesters

The tea party protesters didn't need free stuff and handouts to get them to show up. How many ppl do you think would show up for this if they are not giving away free stuff? Probably 2.

Who said there was going to

Who said there was going to be "free stuff"? NOBODY. You people are reprehensible idiots. And who said it was going to be ALL BLACK PEOPLE? Hmmmm? NOBODY. I'm white and I registered voters for Obama. In all kinds of diverse neighborhoods. What's your problem, people? I'll tell you what it is: It's racism, pure and simple. It makes you feel less threatened to think that only welfare-receiving black folk would come out for Pres. Obama, but meanwhile, he wouldn't be president if enlightened white people hadn't voted for him. Grow UP.

When it gets to the point

When it gets to the point where almost the majority of voters don't pay any taxes... yet get freebies and rebate checks from the government.. it's no surprise who wins the elections.

DBS.. wanna bet. It'll take

DBS.. wanna bet. It'll take 3 1/2 years to get over Nov.4, and 8 to find a real leader that a majority of Americans "might" want to vote for. GOP has to re-brand itself from the angry southern white male party and try again in 8!

No I'll leave that up to you.

No I'll leave that up to you. I'm a tax-paying, college grad, employed, home owning, business owning, african-AMERICAN male who happens to have an open mind about MOST things! Oh, and IF a candidate from any party "impressed" me enough... he/she gets my vote regardless of affiliation! Be careful of what you wish for on the tax paying vote privilege idea. If Caucasians are the majority demographic, that very well may be the leading group who DOES NOT PAY taxes! Get a math book.. figure it out its called Statistics!
