This op-ed appeared back on October 21, 2008 in The Amarillo Globe News. I am guessing, from the time lapse of the article to the date of hits I saw on blog sites, that everyone is getting this is their e-mail box. That’s where I got mine. Thanks, Aunt Netty!

Note: I tried the switchboard number given in her piece for over an hour and did not get through, only the “All circuits are currently busy….” message. I finally googled my two Senators and got both their DC and local phone numbers. Got through to Hagel’s office – no surprise, he’s voting FOR it. Still not able to get through to Nelson’s office.
Additionally, BOTH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES HAVE SAID THEY WILL VOTE FOR THIS MONSTROSITY!!
God help us all!
I’m just saying…
