Vote Fraud and Congressional Inaction- Demand the Resignation of Nancy Pelosi

While many concerned citizens are researching all of the problems with our recent election, it seems that our House of Representatives could really care less. After returning to session yesterday, this is the important work our ’representatives’ were focusing on...

H.R. 4818 making appropriations for foreign operations, export financing, and related programs for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, and for other purposes

H.J. Res 110 recognizing the 60th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge during World War II

H.750 recognizing the 130th anniversary of the creation of lifesaving stations on the Great Lakes, which became part of the United States Life-Saving Service, and for other purposes

S.2693 to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 1475 Western Avenue, Suite 45, in Albany, New York, as the "Lieutenant John F. Finn Post Office"

S.2214 to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 3150 Great Northern Avenue in Missoula, Montana, as the "Mike Mansfield Post Office"

S 2640 to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 1050 North Hills Boulevard in Reno, Nevada, as the "Guardians of Freedom Memorial Post Office Building" and to authorize the installation of a plaque at such site, and for other purposes

H Res 641 supporting the goals and ideals of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

It is difficult to believe, and I too want to have more respect for our government, but this is what they do all day. And they started at 2 pm. I think it is time that we demand more from our government, don’t you?

Nancy Pelosi is the house minority leader, and she has been doing nothing to support the real democrats in the party. After this recent seemingly fraudulent election, she suggested that we all just get along with the Republicans who have been committing the worst crimes against our nation in the history of our nation. Our ’representatives’ are sworn to uphold, protect and preserve our constitution, and this current House of Representatives has done anything but. I do believe that stealing an election in a democracy is Treason. Shouldn’t they at least look into the voter disinfranchisement? When Clinton was in office, the House held him responsible for anything and everything. This current Adminstration has gotten away with murder, literally, with no oversight. Nancy Pelosi, has failed us, and she needs to be replaced with someone who will stand up for our constitution and the American people. How can they go on naming post offices when our democracy has been hijacked?

Please contact your congressperson today and let them know how your feel about the ’work’ they are doing.

WTF is the petition for? They just toss those in the circular file, ie THE TRASH.

We need to call them, write them, fax them and get in their faces! It is their job to hold this administration accountable. They are not doing their jobs. Petitions are just a diversion.

I will assume that the Democrats are just as ineffective and unjust as the Republicans if there is not an investigation of the obvious failure of our democracy in this election. We cannot be considered a democracy unless we can be sure our votes count. Its up to you. You have to do it.

Hey Everybody,

I’m as mad as any of you, but you all need to stop, take a few deep breaths, and start to channel your energy into something more constructive. I was an Election Protection Poll watcher, and am still getting e-mails from EP that assure me that the lawyers are still in Ohio working. Even though we would love to know what is going on, I’m beginning to think this is a good strategy to keep what’s going on "below the RADAR" by keeping what’s really happening at the local level. Voting Laws ARE currently local laws. I don’t think they should be and this needs to be changed, but that’s the situation for now. The 2000 Florida fiasco, brought AL Gore’s political career to an abrupt end. When and if the Green/Libertarian Recount of Ohio flips Ohio to Kerry, we all need to be ready for the crys of "bloody murder" from George Bush and the Republican’s Neo-Fascist Mis-leaders. If the election isn’t flipped, know ones good name has been dragged through the mud.

Here are some web addresses and websites where you can write directly to the Reps you want address. If you (and anyone you know) write a well though out, logical (and short) e-mail directly to the Congresspersons office, your voice WILL be heard. I’ve been doing this for more than 6 years, and have seen some of my idea reflected in policy changes of the Reps and Senators I’ve written to. Not every time, but enough of the time to know that my e-mails have made a difference.

Nancy Pelosi is the house MINORITY leader. That means she has absolutely NO say into the House agenda or the bills that are brought to the floor. This is especially true under the current Republican "leadership," headed by Texan Tom Delay (Dennis Haster is just another stooge of Delay).
I don’t know where any of you get your news from, but NPR just reported that the House, led by Tom Delay -R (Texas), just voted to change the 1993 house rule (pushed through by Republicans in the lead up to the Clinton Witch Hunt), the rule that said, if a House Leader is brought under indictment, he or she should resign his or her leadership position. This is very convenient for Tom Delay, as he is under investigation, and will most likely be indicted of election fraud in Texas in a few weeks or days.

This election isn’t over until all the vote counts and re-counts are finished. We only have a few more days to make a difference, don’t waste it,

>>>"Nancy Pelosi is the house MINORITY leader. That means she has absolutely NO say into the House agenda or the bills that are brought to the floor."

Gee, but Nancy can’t get a camera up in her face to declare what must be done?

But Nancy can’t write an Op Ed?

But Nancy can’t write a bill ANYWAY??

For chissakes stop protecting the corporate owned millionaires who want to keep their jobs and pretend to be working for the people. The whole reason the Ds ARE a minority is because they are useless as a party. They are blocking the way for others to get the job done and should step aside.

Nancy Peloci by law is the new speaker of the House of Representatives and all Americans will have to live with it. It was won fair and square by the American voters that got fed up with the way the Bush Administration has been conducting business in Washington for the last six years.
The gravy train for the Republicans came to an end at the choice of the voters and we now must live with it as we lived with the Bush Administration by previous voters. Let us unite in attitude that we must be responsible citizens including government officials and let us begin through honesty. Good or bad we need the truth from government officials and that is why we elect people to be honest with our government’s dealings.

I can’t believe that American voters decided to finally be brave to express their choice by voting this last time around. There is a ray of hope for the Sleeping American to awaken to what has been done to its country. We went into a fabricated war through previously planned progaganda that we must attack another country to promote a President’s agenda because he really didn’t know what he should do as a World leader. You see him at every event he speaks should I say more about his attributes. Let’s move on to deal with issues that we need such as aid for students, aid for the elderly. We need decent wages for all to survive. Let us quit wasting our money by sending abroad and spend it here taking care of our own citizens, such as the New Orleans that is still suffering. Let us deal with providing prescribed and legal drugs at affordable prices for all. It is time to get back on track. Let Nancy Peloci do her job.

The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
