Senate Coverage -- (September'06)
Thomas ^ | 9/5/06

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 Senate Majority and Senate Minority

And Monthly Calendars for the House Majority and Roll Call Votes can be found here.

Try posting this in your url of windows

http://www.fednet.net/asx/sflr_1.asx


Cornyn is giving a history lesson when the WOT really started ...

He said it could have started in 1979 in Iran .. or in 1983 with the Beirut bombing .. and he list a bunch other dates

It would be nice if the GOP Senators would have watched Bush's great speech...and start BACKING him for a change instead of running away like he has cooties.

Kennedy can barely speak or figure out what's going on. Of course, I can't figure it out either.

Kenendy says the President is using scare tactics like he did in previous elections

That the American people know better and won't make that mistake again

That the war in iraq had nothing to do with the WOT

And if the Administration doesn't think there is a civil war .. then this bill says they have to explain way and what they will do to prevent one

This is a stupid amendment

Oh and I've lost count on how many times Kennedy mentioned the words "Civil War"

I haven't even been able to count the number of times that he has said "civil war"...

OUR country fought a civil war, fgs....so WHAT???

BUT, he is giving quotes of people that have said "may end up in civil war"..."a civil war is possible"...sounds like he is making Bush's points to me.
