Curious how Wear your Whistle to Work went

I'm sorry to say, I did not get the reception I had hoped for. I work in a large teaching hospital. My Supervisor, a somewhat high-positioned man commented, "very controversial" and that was the end of it. That was also the general sense I got today. I didn't have one person ask me about the whistle. Not one. When I did bring it up, people felt it was too controversial and shied away.

What was your experience?

I'm still going to wear the whistle tomorrow and on from there. Every time I'm near a TV, it pisses me off, their relentless, constant droning: 'Treason,' 'Traitor,' 'Espionage' and 'Death Penalty' ...

Good people are getting scared silent. We have to stop it. Lighten the mood. Give it a laugh, but we have to get people to use their heads and think for themselves.

Not surprising the Sheeple did'nt even notice.

but its not their fault, they are victims of the state run school system like most of us.

Things are hopefully changing though.

Cool vid about free market education... Free and many times better state schools.

Finally found a whistle!

I spent the morning running around lookin' to buy me a whistle. The sports stores didn't have any, nor did the dollar stores. I was about to give up, thinking that the PTB had already banned the sale of whistles, when a nice young lady suggested I try the store next door, which was a kid's toy/gift shop. Lo and behold, I found whistles! So, I bought a couple (only $1.49 each) and I intend to wear one until such time as our 'free world' comes to it's senses. In the mean time, I can blow my whistle every time I hear BS! Unfortunately, I'll probably go through more than two of them :-(

The Silent Ones Won't Blow Whistles

They allow atrocities to occur.

They saw the whistle,

they know what it means and they had to think about it outside of the their living room. Good job.

Might not seem much to you

Might not seem much to you poster, but reporting the experience considering the issue at hand, thank you

Feels like it should give me a better understanding, why folks arent up in air waving their hands around :)like lunatics, over this.......i believe with knowledge of why they are'nt, will lead to the knowlede of how to explain these things, in ways THEY understand....without dumbing down the message

So although, your activism was'nt as you hoped, if i got that right, i think personally, you have done an invaluable service, by writing your interesting observation "contriversial"(why is it contriversial?what part of it makes you not want to talk about it, barring the completely uninterested........

"i dont care for numbers, as long as ONE person keeps the freedom flames alive to spread at a later date, although, numbers are good too" :)

A smart employable trait: common sense

Use it in deciding whether to wear the whistle or not.

Self employed? Wear it.
Work for someone self-employed? Wear it.
Work for the government? Keep it in your pocket.

Edit: Work for anyone funded by the government? That includes most hospitals. So keep it in your pocket and give some of your patients some hope.

Self Censoring is nothing

but a symptom of living under tyranny. Plain and Simple.

It's sad that people are so chicken

I ordered this t-shirt online, and am thinking of a slogan to iron on it.

I know that alone feeling.

Early in 2007 I thought I was the only one in Jacksonville, Fl. who knew the answer to "who is Ron Paul?. I wondered how I could tell everyone in a city of over a million. So, I put "Ron Paul. Hope for America" on my business pylon sign and started talking to everyone that came in, good for business or not ...... I didn't remain alone.

Bravo! Pick your side and stand firm.

I finally got to a Wall Mart today and bought my whistle. 2 whistles with red and blue neck straps for only $3.98. You will find them in sporting goods by the basketballs. :)
