    to take another peek at Facebook data for Richmond users I do this once in a while more for personal reference than anything but I figure some other people may be interested in the data as well All figures come from the Facebook Ad targeting system so they aren t 100 accurate but do represent a good snapshot for RVA s Facebook usage Total Facebook Users In Virginia 1 794

    be crazy delicious all up in here CNN Caper Overview Getting CNN to report on a fake story and then spoof them the same day Target CNN Activists Jason Jim Brian Technical people needed Photographer stenographer Thomas Kincaid Kitty Kelly Written by Jason S Kenney Esq The idea was pretty straight forward Bearing Drift would invite CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau to a secluded getaway to have a one on one meeting with me The idea would be that we d discuss matters of the day and I d be pretending to be crazy and right wing and she d use her powers of Liberal Bias to spin me into some sort of right wing monster and utterly destroy me and Bearing Drift with it Well once Ms Boudreau arrived a dastardly villain would smash through the window and kidnap her Psst It s really Jim This evil villain would spout off socialist and communist rhetoric and pretty much make himself out to be a left wing nut it s a set up you see as he tied Ms Boudreau up and left her lying on train tracks where the 4 o clock Roanoke Express was always on time Knowing how these things usually ended up evil villain would have his henchman watch over our helpless captive to ensure the full evil plan came to effect Really it would be Brian Kirwin making sure she didn t get away so the best part of the plan could happen You see cause right as the train was sounding in the distance I d show up with a broadsword and no shirt and do battle with evil villain henchman Through the genius placement of my sword between Brian s torso and arm and timely pressure on ketchup packets the henchman would appear to

    just a bunch of mercenaries willing to go out of our way to advance the Conservative cause on the internet only if it pays well Creating the next big thing or even utilizing what s already there for the cause doesn t take a lot of money it simply takes time and a willingness to make it happen Yet too many people are thinking in terms of dollars and seeing this as a money making opportunity We ve got to get past that if we can even hope to begin to compete on the web Once you build something once you have a model that works then you can ask people to invest in it The reader generated value of my comment 1 points So is the comment of Brian Edwards who uses a comment to hype GOPHub which is an actual effort to create a Digg for right of center blog content So a comment that talks about what is being done and without a half a million dollar investment and another that points out that money should not be the issue aren t worth noting They re worth less than that Good to know The problem is that the right is trying to create the next big thing right away And while that might not come cheap it s a flawed approach at the issue MoveOn had some big backing sure but DailyKos ActBlue these sites started as activist driven grassroots organizations that have grown through the years If DailyKos and ActBlue have made their organizers money I m pretty sure that wasn t their intention and has become a delightful perk It s also ignoring the existance of sites like RedState which act as hubs of conservative thought without large financial backing Let s look locally Virginia
