11. What will they try next?
Who knows? But just in case they DO, please keep the info from my sig line handy.

I used this number this morning (I feel as though I call it almost every friggin' day!), to call Lautenberg (to praise the Chickenhawk speech he gave recently, and I did a "by the way" about the gay marriage amendment - PLEASE do NOT support putting discrimination INTO OUR CONSTITUTION!), plus my own Boxer and Feinstein, and a few assorted others. I also called the lovely Marilyn Musgrave, R-CO, whose sanctimonious buzz-phrase-blathering was on Larry King last night, and reminded her of the same thing, and mentioned that a majority of the callers to the show were staunchly opposed to mucking with the Constitution in this way, for this purpose.

I realize reps like Musgrave won't be swayed, but at least I'm on record there. And it's important that she be made aware that there are PLENTY of people who do NOT agree with what she's doing. They need to face this. They need this fact shoved IN THEIR FACES. OVER AND OVER. They need to see that there are MULTITUDES of people out here who will NOT be bullied, and who will NOT be cowed because some knuckle-dragger thinks their opposing views are unpatriotic, and will not stand passively by and watch them ramrod yet another extremist splinter idea down the national throat. These are people who have not been told "NO" NEARLY enough. Especially lately. Especially since bush took over. Heck, especially since Reagan and Gingrich took over and launched their intimidation machine against liberals and progressives everywhere.

Frankly, every single accursed one of them needs one of those Howard Dean rebel yells right in their faces, and blown full-blast in their ears. At least once every minute of the day. They've had their monopoly fun long enough. Now, they need to be sent back to their corners, and under their rocks. They've done enough damage. And they need to be told this, over and over. Had enough? I sure have.
