Skip to comments.Senate Coverage -- (November - December '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.
The Founders' Constitution
THE WHITE HOUSE
THE WAR DEPARTMENT (aka The Dept. of Defense)
LIVE DoD Briefings
NEWSEUM: TODAY'S FRONT PAGES
Here is the thread
I still never put a Senate Thead ping list together .. sorry about that
Also .. I'll be popping in and out .. trying to get ready for Thanksgiving
Maybe we should put together teams/league?
Thanks Mol....I will try to ping whoever I can remember that used to show up.
BTW..good luck on Thanksgiving...my daughter is having ours at HER house..and she is having 20 something people, bless her heart.
Actually...I don't think Senate watching is going to be much "fun"...but, Bahbah and I have decided that it is more important than ever, that we keep ours eyes on them more than ever.
We will keep notes for you!
Thanks so much to both of you. Not fun perhaps, but instructive.
I saw a couple of guys on Neil Cavuto's show last week that were talking about this...
I never figured out fantasy football...fantasy Congress sounds HARD!!
What do you think??
I want the Pubbies to watch, and learn how the Dems USE and EXERCISE power...absolutely..with no care whatsoever about the minority...so that when we get it back in 2 years...
PING for LIVE Senate thread
I think it's easy to win this..just choose a team with the perfect ADA ratings...but that means I'd have to draft Teddy..
It's tough to think about a fantasy Congress when we've just realized we're now living in a nightmare one!
Well, they are back to doing what they do best. Spending our money.
I agree .. they need to watched more then ever now
Bumping times are ahead
Bumping = Bumpy
Thanks sleuthie, at the moment I'm banging my head on the desk after the Martinez announcement!
Bump from me too and thanks!
I think we need a Congressional Survivor. So we can kick people off our island!
The demons don't use and exercise their power, they ABUSE their power.
I'm not surprised anymore. Just another daily punch in my gut.
