Re: [RLCHouston] Don Zimmerman on phone calls
- 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?
