FNC seemed to think it was a joke. Made light of the entire episode.

Yeah, I remember Schlep Schleptard calling it a "stunt".

I can't stand that twit.

I just sent the Madam Speaker the following letter along with my Congressman Dennis Moore.

We need leadership in America that listens what we need as a country.

Please! as distasteful as it might be, send the Madem Speaker and your elected official an email and tell them how you feel. Flood Washington's email servers and tell them to come back on Monday Morning to deal with Energy and the High Paying Good Jobs Drilling creates for our fellow Americans.





Dear Speaker Pelosi,



Attached is a letter sent to my Congressman Dennis Moore. Congress needs to come back to Washington Next Monday and start dealing with the Energy crisis in a Bipartisan manner instead of the grandstanding that has taken place when you turned the lights and camara's off last week. This is America and we all are acting like its a third world country.



We need to grow Jobs and that can only be done by changing our Can't Do additude to a Can Do additude. We need domestic drilling in the US and Coastal Waters and in ANWR. Drilling creates Jobs for Americans. High Paying Jobs! Building Nuclear Power Plants creat Jobs! High Paying Jobs.



What do you and the rest of the congress not understand about supporting the creation of Jobs and security for America?



Please deal with the issues that effect Jobs, Security and the future growth of our Nation.



Best Regards, XXXXXXXXXXXXXX



Congressman Dennis Moore
1727 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, DC 20515



Dear Congressman Moore,

Thank you for your August 6th, 2008 update from Washington, regarding the need to deal with the energy issue. I find the message very shallow when Congress could have take the necessary steps to continue the dialog and debate on Drilling Here and Drilling now for American security at home.

The defining moment occurred last week when Speaker Pelosi, showed America what bipartisan cooperation really meant to her and the democracy we have in America by turning off the CSPAN Camera’s, sound and lights on the minority side of the house. Yes that is a real partisan and a mature show of power by the Speaker of the House! I was greatly disappointed that you have not taken the time to address this grandstanding issue and the energy issues with Kansan's.

There is a real solution to the energy crisis in America today and that is for Congress to take some action in allowing for new domestic drilling, here at home and off the coastal waters of the United States. Even, the Alaskan's want to drill in ANWR! So why not drill there. Think about the new high paying jobs the drilling creates for Americans!

We have gone from a nation of Can Do to a nation of Can’t Do with Gridlock in Washington. Evidently if you’re not a part of the solution to the energy issue then your part of the problem! Perhaps six terms in Congress is enough in Washington?

Creating a windfall profit's tax against the oil companies and giving that money back to the voters is a bad idea. Everything were hearing from the Democratic Party is tax and more tax! And then were going to give you this $1,000.00 rebate from the windfall tax. Well as a shareholder of Exxon-Mobil since 1985, I find that message troubling as Barack Obama's plan to play Robin Hood with the American taxpayer is dead wrong. Windfall Profit taxes will hurt the Oil companies and hurt their stockholders who are voters in the 2008 election. Frankly more taxes do not create more new Jobs. All more taxes do is to drive jobs away from the USA.

You letter stated that you wanted bipartisan cooperation between the parties, If that's really true you need to tell speaker Pelosi loud and clear that congress needs to return to Washington next Monday. Americans want to see a Congress that is working in Washington, instead taking a FIVE WEEK VACATION.

Best Regards,

It’s my understanding that Republicans cannot bring in their own recording devices. What are the details of that?

GIVE ME A PLACE TO STAND AND I WILL MOVE THE EARTH....Archimedes

Great tagline, and you prove its truth. Thank you for the daily phone calls to D.C., and for planting the seed for the idea of this revolt in the House. I haven't had this much FUN on FR in a long time.

Because of your live threads, I called my Congress Critter's office Friday while she was still in D.C. and the revolt had just begun. I was told she was still nearby, but hadn't rejoined the House members speaking on the floor. I let them know people all across the nation, using the internet and new media, were watching what they were doing and would remember who was and wasn't there. I encouraged her to be counted.

My (R) Congress Critter left town anyway. I've since called her local office every day and will continue to do so. What I've been doing is asking "Is my representative back in D.C. yet to speak on the House floor?" Each day I give them some new bit of information, usually something I learn from your live thread. Today it was about how Newt Gingrich is coming to the House to meet with members of Congress. When they say "no, she won't be there", I say (with disappointment in my voice) "Ah, that's too bad. I guess this is another day I won't be sending her a campaign contribution."

Also, thanks to your live thread, I was #964 on Cantor's petition, sent it around to my email list who sent it to their own, and this is how we make things happen. Your live threads are wonderful, entertaining and informative. Thank you for all you do, you've made a difference.

I called Congresswoman Blackburns’ office and thanked her for doing this. I talked to a staffer but she was very happy to hear from Marshas’ constituents. We need to stay on the media to cover this. There may not be cameras in the building but they can still talk about it.

Just catching up on my reading and saw this in the sidebar. Woo Hoo. WTG, EC!!! I was honored to be a part of the first live thread. I can claim credit for asking the mods to apply that very special designation that strikes fear into the hearts of libs and Dan Rathher. There's nothing like it in all of FReeperdom.

I want you to know that I participate in an specialized industry message board (forum). There are many leftists in there, many!, and I fight with them everyday. But, as soon as I saw your post, I cross posted it to that forum.

I have to tell you, your post got even the lefties PO’d at Pelosi, and everyone vowed to call their rep’s.

We made a difference that day, and I owe my part to you.

Thanks!

I don’t know if anyone has explained it or not, but they are using a site called Twitter and their handheld blackberries to get the word out.

Then they film (but only allowed outside chambers) to put up on a site called Qik (I think)

You can see what’s going on if you Google #dontgo. That is a place where lots is going on and there are updates.

I’m so glad the word is getting out about the “110th most do-nothing session of Congress”. Vote for drilling. Keep up the fight. As this keeps getting attention, it will become more apparent that the Main stream media is irrelevant. Talk radio and the internet is where it is at now.

Drill here, drill now, lower the price of oil.
