I just called and said "There's a Republican revolt going on int the House Chamber and I wasn't seeing much coverage of it." I got a run around on it. Was told several times "There are no cameras on now. Cameras are not allowed." I objected, politely, that the story could still be covered.

He seemed mildly irritated that I would question that and asked if I wanted to talk to (name garbled) and I said yes. Got a phone tree that led to leaving a recorded message. I did...

"There's a Republican revolt going on in the House Chamber. I understand that the cameras are turned off. You can still cover the story. Thank you."

http://www.politico.com/blogs/thecrypt/0808/Dems_turn_out_the_light_but_GOP_wont_go_home_Part_II.html

~snip~

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) said he was “not leaving until we call this Congress back into session and vote for energy independence.”

Rep. Tom Cole (Okla.), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said the dimly lit chamber is a “vision of the future by the Democrat Party - the lights are out, there’s no power, and the air conditioning is gonna go off soon.”

>>This is some kind of grand stand play by folks in the House. All normal Floor action has been halted for the normal close of business. However, everything that is said on the House Floor, does go into the Congressional Record whether anybody is there or not. So a bunch of yahoos are still pontificating away.... in the dark. DUH.<<

Our local radio news show host Ray Appleton (Fresno) is talking to Devin Nunes right now.

He says they have about 45 minutes ‘til Pelosi kicks them out. He says the gallery is packed with tourists.

Where the VW w/a sail poster came from is that a democrat said that their energy plan is to drive small cars and wait for the wind.

If I heard Nunes correctly the Repubs were trying to get a vote together when Pelosi decided it was time to adjourn.

A lot of policeman assembling off of floor. What does that mean?

That's one to watch. Something big is happening, an unguided mob is assembling, word is getting out, excitment is growing, and that makes cops nervous.

Whoever put that list of Fox news phone numbers together did a great thing. I called “John Moody, Sen VP News Phone: 212-301-8560” and actually GOT him and asked why the story wasn’t on the web. He was caught off guard I think but handled it well to say that they have given the story air time (we don’t get TV so I’m guessing they did) and likely it would make the web soon.

Heh, better than sitting around complaining to neighbors. Thanks Freep

I just called all the offices for the Republican reps from the state of GA. Reps, Lynn A. Westmoreland and Tom Price were on still on the floor ... I told the staff how much I appreciated them fighting for us, I told them I had a 60 mile a day commute and with 3 kids at home these gas prices were killing us... I told them to keep it up and Hopefully AMERICAN people will see what is going on and will do something about it come NOVEMBER!!!

Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction, It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again. Knowing this, it is hard to explain those who even today would question the people's capacity for self-rule. Will they answer this: if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? Using the temporary authority granted by the people, an increasing number lately have sought to control the means of production, as if this could be done without eventually controlling those who produce. Always this is explained as necessary to the people's welfare. But, "The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of the principle upon which it was founded" [Montesquieu]. This is as true today as it was when it was written in 1748. Ronald Reagan, California and the Problem of Government Growth, January 5, 1967

I suspect at least some wells are ready or near ready for production . . . if not the Christmas tree installations would not take that much time.

Getting the oil South could be a challenge, however.

But solvable.

The sad folks over at DU will be disappointed -

No they won't. I'll bet they're popping the corn and breaking open the brews to see the Republicans melt down over the normal close of the legislative session. We're the ones whipping up the storm. I'm sure it is a huge laugh to DU that this is going on. The debate could have just as easily been over some miniscule subject like parking privileges at US airports for House members when the session closed for normal vacation. Because it was the drilling issue, it made the blogs go into global meltdown .... over nothing!
