September extended by act of Congress

Today’s Downsizer-Dispatch . . .

Three quick items today . . .

* “Gun Owners of America” leader on Jim Babka’s radio show today
* September extended by fraudulent act of Congress
* Help promote Downsize DC partner “Free Talk Live”


Jim has a guest on the radio show today: Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America. This episode was pre-recorded, so you can’t call in with questions or comments, but you CAN listen at Click on Listen. Channels 1 & 2 are free. You can subscribe for higher-quality on Channels 3 & 4.

This one hour show starts at 5:06 PM Eastern (4:06 PM Central, 3:06 PM Mountain, and 2:06 PM Pacific). The show is sponsored by Gun Owners of America, the Marijuana Policy Project, and


Actually, we’re lying. For once, Congress didn’t do anything wrong. The fraud is all ours. is extending September by 1 day on its own authority (or something like that).

We’re committing this chronological fraud because we got oh-so-close to meeting our September fundraising goal, and we’re cheating the calendar in an attempt to still make it. We’re just $693 short. If you would like to participate in our calendar-extending self-deception by making a contribution you can do so here.


“Free Talk Live” is a great and growing radio show that runs Downsize DC radio ads and promotes our work constantly. The more they grow the more we grow, so we encourage you to help them grow. Here’s the latest from the host of “Free Talk Live,” Ian Bernard . . .

“With the addition of Clear Channel’s WTKG AM 1230 in Grand Rapids, MI, “Free Talk Live,” the world’s award winning #1 political podcast is now airing on 17 radio stations from coast to coast! As you know, Downsize DC’s Jim Babka appears often on FTL.

“In September we were ranked #4 in the world out of over 24,000 podcasts of all types at Podcast Alley. We got about 500 votes. With 1,500 votes we’d have been solidly number one. Being number one means more new people becoming DC Downsizers.

“There are far more than 1,500 people reading this message. Please take a moment and vote for “Free Talk Live” at . It’s fast, easy, and makes a difference. If you’d like to help get “Free Talk Live” on your local talk station, learn how here.”

That’s all for today. Thanks for being a DC Downsizer.
