KEEP CALLING - Repugs are calling, too!

I've been dialing my fingers off all morning and mostly having trouble getting through to Senate offices.  But I did get through to Senator Feinstein's office and the office of Senator Mary Landrieu.  In both contacts I discovered something obvious that I just hadn't thought of before:  THE REPUGS ARE CALLING, TOO!  I know that sounds silly and naive but I just hadn't thought about it.

Feinstein's office said they were "inundated" with calls and that the calls were running "fifty-fifty" on whether to filibuster.  Landrieu's office said "our phones are ringing off the walls" but said that the calls were supportive of Landrieu's no filibuster position by about 75-25.  So we need to keep calling!

Thanks for posting this.  I wish we had more support on the front page.

Re: KEEP CALLING - Repugs are calling, too!

Pass this progressive agenda or face a mass boycott of Republican contributors.

Please also forward this message to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Majority leader of the Senate.

I demand that you get the Republican Party to hold a press conference and accede to these demands. Until such a press conference happens and the legislation and/or actions gets passed I will boycott products from Republican contributors Walmart, Wendy’s, Outback Steak House, Dominos Pizza, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Eckerd, CVS and Walgreens, Curves for women health clubs, GE and Exxon/Mobil.

I demand that congress pass legislation ending the war in Iraq and withdraw the troops and arrange with the United Nations to replace US troops with UN troops to defend Iraq until The Iraqi army can defend Iraq.
I demand that the Republican party end their aggressive and hateful action to end a woman’s right to choose abortion or not.

I Demand that congress not confirm judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme court as he will NOT support a woman’s right to choose her own medical treatment including abortion.

I demand that the Congress of the United states and the president of the United States enact a law to increase the minimum wage to TEN dollars an hour and also to extend unemployment benefits to a year or more for all people whose unemployment benefits expired after 6 months even though they still seek work.

I demand that the Congress of the United States to not privatize social security benefits in any form including taking a percentage of the social security tax and placing it in private accounts. People can already create their own pensions with money after taxes in the private sector.

I demand that the congress make all of a person’s earned income taxable for social security FICA tax purposes and remove the 88,000 dollar taxable income limit. This will make social security solvent for many years to come.

I demand the congress increase the payroll tax in order to make social security solvent as well.

I demand congress and the president enact a prescription drug benefit under Medicare Part B which covers 80 percent of medication cost, with no extra premium, no extra deductibles, no means test and no coverage gaps, and no penalties for signing up in a succeeding year.

I demand congress repeal the faulty Medicare law HR 1 / S 1 passed by congress in Nov 2003.

I demand congress enact single payer universal health insurance for every citizen as minimum coverage.

I demand that congress and the president enact universal vote by mail throughout the 50 states of the United States of America with paper ballots easy to fill out and difficult to change or invalidate by Republican Party officials. This will prevent Republicans from vote suppression by skin color and political party which happened electronically and in person in the 2000 and 2004 elections.

I demand that congress and the president enact that civil servants on every state payroll keep track of voter registrations and vote counting of mail in votes in each precinct and not companies such as Choicepoint. We need to take the Republican Party out of the business of keeping track of voter registration and counting votes.

I demand that congress and the president ban the secretary of state in each of the 50 states from engaging in politics especially acting as a campaign official for a presidential campaign.

I demand congress enact legislation protecting private pensions from corporations deliberately declaring bankruptcy or ending pensions outright.

I do this in the spirit of peaceful resistance to a congress that refuses to enact this legislation.

I have a plan to stop the confirmation of Samuel Alito.

For Tennessee residents:

Tell the people of Tennessee who want to stop the confirmation of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court to get on the phone right away

and call Senator Frist at

1-877-851-6437 or 1-888-355-3588
1-888-818-6641 or 1-800-426-8073

and tell him to stop the confirmation of Samuel Alito or Dominos pizza, the company that contributes exclusively to the Republican Party and the pro life until birth movement, will suffer a boycott.

Then call Dominos Pizza at 800 468 4726 and demand the employee get the CEO of Dominos Pizza, a hardcore Republican, to get Senator Frist to stop the confirmation of Samuel Alito or you will never do business with Dominos Pizza again. You can also call a local Dominos Pizza and tell the store owner this too.You can also do this with Wendy’s Hamburgers Restaurants and Outback Steakhouse too if you like, as these two companies contribute exclusively to the Republican Party.

Then go and buy a roast beef sandwhich at Arby’s or get some Boars Head Brand Roast Beef as these two companies give money to the Democrats.

Do well and work fast.

For residents in other states:

“A Demand without a boycott will most likely fail” : Mighty Maximus

URGENT: Call your senators NOW at

1-877-851-6437 or 1-888-355-3588
1-888-818-6641 or 1-800-426-8073

and tell them “Vote NO on confirmation of Alito or I boycott GOP contributor and antiabortion supporter Dominos Pizza.” Then call and tell that to Senator Frist. Then call Dominos Pizza and tell the employee that unless the CEO of Dominos to get the Republican Party to withdraw the nomination of Samuel Alito or get the Senators to reject Alito, you will never do business with Dominos Pizza again. No CEO wants 50 percent of his customer base to disappear.
