Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House).
So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about what and I'll try and find it the next day in THE RECORD. Or if you see a thread that pertains to the Senate, House, or pretty much any GOV'T agency please link your thread here.
If you have any suggestions for this thread please feel free to let me know.
Here's a few helpful links.
C-SPAN what a great thing. Where you can watch or listen live to most Government happenings.
C-SPAN 1 carries the HOUSE.
C-SPAN 2 carries the SENATE.
C-SPAN 3 (most places web only) carries a variety of committee meetings live or other past programming.
OR FEDNET has online feed also.
A great thing about our Government is they make it really easy for the public to research what the Politicians are doing and saying (on the floor anyway).
THOMAS where you can see a RECORD of what Congress is doing each day. You can also search/read a verbatim text of what each Congressmen/women or Senator has said on the floor or submitted 'for the record.' [This is where the real juicy stuff can be found.]
Also found at Thomas are Monthly Calendars for the Majority and Minority
Roll Call Votes can be found here.
THE WAR DEPARTMENT (aka The Dept. of Defense)
LIVE DoD Briefings
NEWSEUM: TODAY'S FRONT PAGES
10:00 a.m.: Convene and begin a period of morning business.
2:15 p.m.: Resume consideration of the motion to proceed to S. 2062, the Class Action Fairness bill. [I just love it when they throw fairness into a Bills title.]
That's a great picture!
9:45 a.m.: Convene and begin a period of morning business.
Thereafter, resume consideration of S. 2400, the Department of Defense Authorization bill for Fiscal Year 2005.[I hope Kerry misses the final vote for this Bill. Is that wrong?]
4:00 p.m.: Honor current Senators who are veterans of World War II.
Tell America to Reject "Hand-Wringers"
With your help, we're taking out a FULL-PAGE ad in USA Today nationwide, printing Sen. Zell Miller's blockbuster speech against the "Hand-Wringers of America", and exposing the blatant hypocrisy of the liberal media and the self-serving left-wing politicians who are just trying to use the Abu Ghraib issue as a political "football". It's up to US to FIGHT BACK against those in the leftist media and the radical liberal Democrats who have confused priorities just so they can fight Pres. Bush politically!
Ok, they have my attention now...
On WJ, Peter Singer schlepping his new book on GWB and his ethics. Isn't this the guy who proposed abortion until 30 days after birth?
He just dropped Bob Woodwards name.......
Have a look at this....

Ooooooooooooooo That caller is ripping into him.
I know how much damage that drugs have caused in many lives, but it is the WOsD that inflicts far more than the abuse of the substances itself.
Yeah, I totaly agree w/ you there the WOsD is a HUGE waste of money and is the basis/excusse for more nany/big Gov't.
I have been searching, but can't come up with the blaming quote that the caller mentioned. Singer probably didn't say it in the exact words of us 'deserving' 9/11, but I sure wouldn't doubt that that was the message conveyed by the piece mentioned. I'm not going to spend the cash to seach the Times archives for it, Singer isn't worth it.
A caller just made the same point you made about killing kids in the first 30days.
You beat me to the post!
Yesterday, the French Defense Ministry placed the entire country on red alert, the second-highest level in the government's counterterrorism program,
Funny, they don't mention the highest level, My guess is, it's white. ;-)
