Doesn't it feel like another century, when the EPA - under Christine Todd Whitman - was having their reports rewritten by low-level White House staffers?


Change we can believe in!

I've been off-line for a bit and as hard as this may be to believe, off all MSM also. I am now trying to catch up with all that has been going on in the groups and in our political arena.

There is a lot of frustrating ringing loud and clear on a number of subjects: health reform, investigations into the
Bush admin's lies, deceit and torture policies, DADT policy, Cheney's one man 'save my ass campaign', bonuses for those responsible for electrocuting our own soldiers, GITMO, to list a few.

There are calls the American people have a right to know and we should push harder for investigations.
Must we be reminded we are the American people?

Are we, part of the American population, doing anything constructive to channel our frustration, notifying
our politicians, contacting the President, writing editorials to our local papers, bombarding and hopefully crashing
email boxes of the people we are most often pissed off at?

I guess what I am asking is do we have any plans in motion? Are we targeting any politicians in particular?
I've been sending letters my our President and my state politicians, but it seems we need to focus more?

Just point me in the right direction, let me know what should be done and I'll get right on it.
