Today's message, will be short and to the point. Below, is a
correspondence I received from "The Pen" (the people's email network- WE
THE PEOPLE-) with links to write in your opinion on stopping the

patriot act
from going through AS IS-I can't imagine anyone wanting
our rights to be stripped away from WE THE PEOPLE, allowing government more power than EVER . Also,
Bill Frist, the unethical, greedy senate majority leader R-Tenn., is rearing his ugly head again and trying to use the NUCLEAR OPTION, with this warning..."
It would be against the intent of the Founding Fathers and our Constitution to deny Sam Alito an up-or-down vote on the floor of the United States
Senate," he said on "Fox News Sunday."
remember his JUSTICE SUNDAY, from thinkingblue May archives, well he is up to his dirty, threatening tricks again. Please sign both petitions and give our SO CALLED LEADERS a comment on how WE THE PEOPLE think about both
these issues. Thanks, Thinkingblue

ThinkingBlue comments:
To my (Florida) representatives in Washington: How much more power do the Republicans, who
are suppose to represent WE THE PEOPLE, want? Never mind, I know the answer. THEY WANT ALL OUR RIGHTS STRIPPED SO THEY CAN MAKE THE JUDGEMENT ON HOW WE ARE SUPPOSE TO LIVE UNDER TYRANNY. They want the masses to be slaves to their commands. For what, you may ask, for power and money. This is nothing new, governments have had such power before they were even
called GOVERNMENTS. I absolutely believe, many On the Right Side Of The Aisle, desire ABSOLUTE POWER, which always brings them riches beyond the imagination. It should be evident to all, but sadly it is not. Please, "Reject the Patriot Act without stronger civil rights protections." Thank you, ThinkingBlue


To my (Florida) representatives in Washington: I see Bill Frist, senate majority leader R-Tenn., is using the NUCLEAR OPTION again, with this warning..."It would be against the intent of the Founding Fathers and our Constitution to deny Sam Alito an up-or-down vote on the floor of the United States Senate," he said on "Fox News Sunday." It wasn't so long ago when he, with his JUSTICE SUNDAY,
tried to tie in Christianity, to get exactly what he and his ilk desire and warrant, which is, ABSOLUTE POWER ON THE SUPREME COURT... You know, if the Supreme Court goes totally conservative and vote on any subject that comes before them, exactly as the FAR RIGHT demands them to do, and that is to, VOTE WITH A CONSERVATIVE VISION and nothing else. I ASK YOU THEN...WHAT IS THE GOOD OF HAVING A SUPREME COURT? It would be just a LAME DUCK court or KANGAROO COURT, and every issue would have an outcome which would be totally predictable. Please, vote to have "No right wing conservative to replace Sandra Day O'Connor." Thank you, ThinkingBlue

lame duck n. 1. An elected officeholder, group or person ineffective and weak.

The People's Email Network exists to give you an avenue
to more effectively communicate with your legislative representatives.
We take no political position on any of the questions presented. That is
your responsibility as a citizen.
Help us spread the word about this resoource to everyone you know.

One issue that unites activists of many persuasions is their distrust of the Patriot Act, the provisions of which megalomaniacs inside our government were pushing for years before America was attacked, and for whom those attacks were nothing more than the excuse they'd been waiting
for. The fact is these unlimited powers are ALREADY being abused, and they have not made us safer. With all the emphasis on airline security the best they can do is murder confused passengers in cold blood as we saw this week. Please contact your members of Congress now and
tell them to vote AGAINST the conference report.

And the cat killer is out of the bag as Frist stated today that if there was a possible filibuster against Sam Alito their trigger fingers would go right back to the nuclear option. The cowardly capitulations of the past have gained us precisely nothing, just as we argued at the time. This is all the more reason to reject not only Alito, but
any hardcore, biased, right wing agenda driven nominee they might put up in his wake. We must tell our Senate that NO conservative is acceptable as a replacement for Sandra Day O'Connor. Otherwise there will be nobody left to protect us when the outrageous dictatorial new powers being seized by the President are challenged in court, as they surely must be.
Please speak out now while we have the chance.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

For whom the bell tolls a poem
(No man is an island) by John Donne
No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manner of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
These famous words by John Donne were not originally written as a poem -
the passage is taken from the 1624 Meditation 17, from Devotions Upon
Emergent Occasions and is prose.
