Evidently. You see, not content with convincing the Administration into drafting a program that will strip religious organizations of their conscience protections, NARAL, and their allies, have launched their own petition too. Last night, when I first sighted it on my scope, it had 290 signatures.
Thanks to all the great folks like you, who have signed and shared the petition asking for the Administration to rescind the HHS mandate, we are well out of range of any SAM missiles, though. Plus, our ship is pretty fast herself. The acceleration numbers on their petition are formidible, though. Last night at 23:00, when I first sighted them on the IFF (Identification, Friend or Foe), it had, as I mentioned, only 290 signatures. By 20:00(EST) today, it has 7,429. That’s cookin’, any way you slice it. Ol’ Goliath done jumped up to chase after David.
As for the Freedom of Conscience, @20:00, she has 22,364 signatures, and she’s almost home. And truthfully, I had planned on parking it at the International Space Station. But, and this is a big “but,” if ya’ll are up to a little horse race with NARAL and her vast hordes of friends, allies, and followers, I’m game to keep flying this thing for you too. You see, after the 25K goal has been met, the rest is just gravy. But if it’s bragging rights they want, then why not wake your friends and phone the neighbors, and let’s get the Camptown Races going?
First across the line wins, and the turtle started 9 days back and steady eddy-like she’ll cross the line soon. And after the goal is met, folks can keep signing the petitions, see? So how about a challenge, readers? We boast about all the fine, peace and life-loving folks that make it out for the March for Life every January 22nd, right? Well how about making sure that they all show up at the White House petition website, huh? Because if they do, between us and the competition, we might just melt all the White House servers, set records, and create a few jobs in their IT Department. Sounds like a win-win.
What do you say folks? Do we race for the cause, or park it after 25K? Let me know in the commbox below.
But, be warned, I’ll expect 100% of your support, gang. I’ll expect you to turn over every stone and get folks to their computers and smart phones to sign the petition. And I won’t truck with any whining about folks being “afraid to set up an account at the White House” because folks are scared of Seizure, I mean Caesar. I ain’t got time for any nonsense like that. Saavy? The competition obviously isn’t a afraid of nothing like that. Of course, they’re on Seizure’s side, and probably are getting help from Twitter.bots and other high cost gadgets that I don’t have.
Anyhow, think it over, pray about it, and let me know that you’ll promise to put the pedal to the metal, and keep it there, and I’ll stay on. Sign here, if you’re a new join! And share this post with your contacts, if you support this new wrinkle. Or share the short link: http://wh.gov/kl3

UPDATE: Laura Ingraham plugs the petition, and asks folks to write Congress. Go forth, and do likewise.
UPDATE II: Mark Shea reminds us not to get uncorked. Maintain an even strain, folks.
UPDATE III:MAX-Q, I say again, MAX-Q 25,000 signatures @ 15:59(EST), 2/07/2012. Thanks for the ride Houston, she’s a great one! And like the fellow below says,
