Dear Friend,

Here is the package we have prepared to assist you in any local effort you care to initiate in opposition to THE WIVES OF BIG BROTHER and their dangerous program.

Included is the typical PMRC fund-raising letter. We want you to see for yourselves what their pitch is. If you agree with their point of view, do what their letter tells you to do. If you don't, use the addresses they have provided (people to complain to), and, instead of complaining, encourage them to broadcast things t hat YOU like. If they are not broadcasting enough of what YOU like, tell them what YOUR ENTERTAINMENT PREFERENCES ARE, and DEMAND MORE OF IT. If you don't make your feelings known, you are going to be stuck with watching and listening to the stuff THEY LIKE.

Also included is a copy of my letter to the President and my CASHBOX editorial. Feel free to quote any of this material in letters you might write to your elected representatives.

The PMRC has a lot of nerve to ask for money... they are already very well funded, well connected, and seem to have the entire U.S. news media in their back pocket. This mailing, all legal fees, phone bills and travel costs connected with fighting this issue have been paid for out of profits from Barking Pumpkin record sales, and from Barfko-Swill mail order funds. We thank you for buying these items. Without the orders you have already placed, a real opposing view to this issue would never have been heard.

Okay... it's up to you now. Don't let yourselves down. Take some time and help protect YOUR Constitutional Rights. You know how to use a phone. You know how to write letters. Make some noise about this issue. Use YOUR imagination. DON'T BEND OVER FOR THE WIVES OF BIG BROTHER.
