    In a piece in opposition to online poker, the Southern Baptist Convention said:

    Yep....the efforts of the poker community are being heard by the opposition. And, they are right about this! We players have no intentions of stepping away from the table, so let's keep telling lawmakers to support our rights:

    • Let's send House Subcommittee for Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade Chair Mary Bono Mack and the rest of the subcommittee tweets requesting a markup for HR 2366, the Online Poker Act: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Then, go tab-by-tab to knock them out.]
    • Let's send the Senate Indian Affairs Committee members these tweets: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
    • Let's keep posting and liking pro-poker comments to the Facebook walls of Senate Indian Affairs Committee members Sen. Barrasso HERE & HERE, Sen. Cantwell HERE, Sen. Hoeven HERE & HERE, Sen. Inouye HERE, and Sen. Murkowski HERE.
    • Let's send a prefilled tweet promoting today's action plan HERE, and let's share today's action on our own Facebook walls HERE.
    If you wish to do more today:

    • Let's make and like pro-poker posts on the Facebook walls of Sen. Reid HERE, Sen. Kyl HERE, Rep. Boehner HERE, and Rep. Cantor HERE. Let's also post and like pro-poker comments to the Facebook walls of Subcommittee Chair Bono Mack HERE, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton HERE & HERE, the Democratic Party Election Site HERE, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee HERE & HERE, and the House Commerce Committee HERE. There are new posts and comments to like since we did these as part of recent action plans.
    Please reply in this thread with "tweeted", "done", etc. to encourage others. Thanks for participating!

    Here's Paul “GiantBuddha” Hoppe explaining the value in these actions:

  19. I have to post this so people won't think that I died or just quit. However, I was sick, so some of these were late; but I finally did Friday, the weekend, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I must have liked hundreds of Facebook posts during that process.

    Please remember that when you're asking someone to do something, showing disrespect is counterproductive. Posts to Facebook should be respectful.
