Morning, PoP! I emailed your post entitled "Here's our Deal. Are you listening Democratic Congress People?" to my elected representatives and got a response from one of them I thought you should see. Enjoy...



Dear Mr. XXXXXXX:



Thank you for contacting me regarding Senator Russell Feingold's (D-WI) resolution to censure President Bush. I want to you know that I appreciate hearing from you, and I am a co-sponsor of this resolution.

On March 13, 2006, Senator Feingold introduced Senate Resolution 398, which would admonish President Bush for his unlawful authorization of the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program, his failure to keep Congress fully informed of this program as required by law, and his efforts to mislead the American people about the legality of the program and the legal authorities relied upon by his administration to conduct it.

The Feingold Resolution has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee at the request of Chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA), and Senator Feingold has called for the Committee to hold hearings, debate, and then vote on the resolution. I share Senator Feingold's strong objections to the administration's warrantless domestic wiretapping program, and I intend to vote for Senator Feingold's resolution should it come before the Senate.

Again, thank you for writing me.


Barbara Boxer
United States Senator

I sent your earlier post to Harry Reid but as of now I've not heard anything back -- nor do I. But, the more they hear from "the people" the more they're apt to consider a particular point of view. Friday's hearing should be quite interesting. I hope they don't take a vote immediately and send it to the floor quickly as I want the issue to ruminate a bit so the idea of censure, while not likely to pass, can stay on the front burner a bit longer than Majority Leader Frist would like it to.

Glad you posted on this PoP.

Time for us to fight the good fight & see where our elected Reps stand.

Do they support the Constitution?

Or are they happy to serve as rubber stamps in a govt that is moving rapidly away from being a democracy?

If they can't bring themselves to vote for censure - such a minor hand slap to Bush - then we must see the handwriting on the wall & decide whether we're willing to keep on with this type of strategy or whether we need to consider other options.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm not willing to live in a dictatorship, no matter how it's disguised.

Thanks for sharing that letter!

And thanks Patricia. I agree with Roo that we are paying a crazy price for all this...and for what? No, a dictatorship under the ruse of safety is not acceptable. -Lily

Yup, I will email them too. Alhough I know that Cornyn is a "lost cause." Still, if we don't make out voice heard, and the right does, the noecons just use that to justify not censoring him.

Email is good. Faxes are good. But phone calls are best.

I can post some toll-free numbers to use to call DC offices.

Let me know if you want them.

Or you can call a local office if you can't get through on the toll-free lines - something that's likely to happen if we build support on this.

Just read PT Cruiser's comment. Remember your Madam instead of Madman post? I'm thinking Feingold and Boxer right now...

Sorry to take so long to get back with the numbers...

Try these to get through to the Congressional switchboard in DC:

1-888-355-3588
1-800-426-8073
1-888-818-6641
1-800-614-2803

I'm not sure if they all still work but at least one of them should.

I've been pretty happy with Barbara Boxer as my Senator. Feinstein, on the other hand, has been pretty disappointing. The problem is Feinstein is the one on your list of Senators to call, not Boxer. I'll be calling/emailing them all anyway. Thanks PoP and Auntie Roo for kicking this off.

Is this another hearing that secludes Democrats to the basement without microphones or proper stenography? Boy, I sure can't wait for checks and balances to come back in my government.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/nivqkai]Lowest Cost Viagra in USA[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
