    Actually Greg Walden is an “R” and he is my rep. Completely unresponsive as to where he stands on any issue I have written to him about. Usual response is that he is not on the committee that the issue falls under, but he will consider my comments if he ever needs to vote on [...]

    - The UN called for all nations to unite against the Islamic State in Iraq to stop their barbaric acts

    When will the UN call for all nations to unite against the US Empire to stop their barbaric acts?

    - When the U.S. launches air strikes in Syria, they will not notify anyone of when they will begin or end.

    There will be no end, it will continue on forever.

    he didn’t have the money needed to actually take the lead.

    Not attacking you, PW, but rather, the concept that it is always MONEY that is needed to win. Repeatedly we hear/write that the reason so-and-so is not ahead or did not win is because they did not have enough money. I know I’m most likely preaching to the choir here, but it doesn’t need to be that way. We absolutely MUST get money out of our elections. I have been receiving at least 20 – 30 daily requests (actually demands) for political contributions from various members and associates of the Democratic Party, and I left that party years ago.

    Earlier this year I wrote to my Senator, Jeff Merkley, that he did not need my money, he needed my vote. Moreover, the only way to get my vote was to earn it via his voting record. I have regularly written to him with feedback as to his votes taken, and as to how I think he should vote. (Yeah, who do I think I am?) Based on his record, I con only conclude that he doesn’t want my vote. I recently received an invitation to “Meet Senator Merkley”, but only allowed to do so with a minimum $100 donation.

    PFFFT.

    Thank you, once again, David.

    I will be voting 3rd party or writing-in here in Oregon. Working Families Party has endorsed Merkley, but based on his overall voting record not just this vote, he does not deserve my support. As for my Rep, not worth mentioning his name.

    I don’t normally comment, just lurk, but now I need some help. I’m trying to do some research on foreclosures for a non-profit that I volunteer with. Does anyone know where I could find the number of home foreclosures for a particular county/state for specific years? I tried local real estate agents and the county [...]

    We need to watch and see if/when this judge gets a promotion, like the judge in the Manning case.

    But there are other ways of doing this easily; most notably removing the payroll tax cap so that the well-off, or those who are prospering, will pay the same share of their income into Social Security as most of the rest of us, and/or there can also be gradual small increases in the employee and employer [...]

    Sent the following via email. Will let you know what I get back. Have been harping on lying and spying to my reps a lot lately.

    It is past time to convene a special congressional investigation into the surveillance activities of the U.S. Intelligence Community. Even we-the-people are aware of ample evidence of wrongdoing.

    Are you in favor of a special congressional investigation similar to the 1975 US Senate special committee chaired by Idaho’s Frank Church to investigate the intelligence gathering activities of the FBI, NSA and CIA?

    I would like a timely and specific answer to that question, at a minimum, YES or NO. I think you should be in favor. If not, then I am very interested to hear your reasons. If you are, indeed, in favor of such an investigation I would like to know what you plan to do to make it happen.

    when I went to the site, the number of signatures was at 113,800+. By the time I finished signing, it was 113,900+.

    Thanks, Edward Teller, for bringing this petition to our attention.

    Lew thinks that’s not a problem because it’s all protein. And it’s not a problem for the administration’s rich clients, whose life-style is utterly unaffected by inflation. For the 99%, the Chained CPI assumes that you are just as happy with canned catfood as you were with fresh salmon.

    Ya know, there’s an even cheaper source [...]

    So Jesus (and not Joe Smith) will be split down the middle with half in Israel and and half in Missouri? Will one get the right half and the other the left? Will it be a front back split, or a top/bottom?? I wonder how that will work? /s

    Stupid question here:
    Are these actual vote tabulations, or are these poll numbers of how people said they voted??
