Someone called Thom today (2/25/11), saying he's going to send Obama a pair of comfortable shoes. This suggestion comes in light of Obama's campaign promise to join union workers on the picket line, if their rights were ever threatened. I agree with that caller, and I'm going to send Obama a pair of shoes. I implore that you all do the same--regardless if they are used shoes, slippers from the dollar store, etc. It's a symbolic gesture that demands our leader to defend us and not the corporations who are intent on destroying the middle class and lengthening the divide between the wealthy and the poor. I looked on the White House website--it's completely legal in relation to the regulations they have stated: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact

Here's the address:

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Obama quotation about supporting the unions is in the following article:
