      Whatsamatta? Sign business a little slow? You sound frustrated Michael.

      Why don't you make up some cool Ron Paul signs and sell them. Bumper
      stickers too. Others are getting outragous prices for these on web
      stores. Surely you could sell them for much less and actually get
      quantities out and make some money.

      As far as the campaign goes, I really don't think Ron is less
      sophisticated about that than either you or I are, do you?

            Whatsamatta? Sign business a little slow? You sound frustrated Michael.

            Why don't you make up some cool Ron Paul signs and sell them. Bumper
            stickers too. Others are getting outragous prices for these on web
            stores. Surely you could sell them for much less and actually get
            quantities out and make some money.

            As far as the campaign goes, I really don't think Ron is less
            sophisticated about that than either you or I are, do you?
