Oh, by the way...

The United States is really an amazing country.  From Nome, Alaska to Key West,  Florida, from Waimea, Hawa'ii to Fort Kent, Maine, we can all particpate in our republic.

Oh, except for a wee backwater that divides Maryland and Virginia. It lies on the Potomac River.

It has more people than the entire state of Wyoming.  But never mind that.  Its congresswoman has been reduced to a toothless thing.  The two Senators are nonexistant. There is a city council, but Congress can nullify their vote on a whim.

Its name is Washington DC.

Cut the crap.  Let them vote.

The new Congress is here! Time to bug the hell out of them!

New Congress, old Congress... what's the dif, you say.  Well, watch the news.  John Boehner had the crap scared out of him when Republican lawmakers tore him a new one. Very thankfully, some   tea party crazies were sent home packing.

The fact is this:  Whether you wish to be married, whether you wish to keep the money you earned that your heterosexual neighor  earned, whether you wish to walk home unaccosted... if you don't say anything, IT'S YOUR FAULT. Period.

C'mon, people, you can do it.  Take five to e-write.  I did, and I feel great.

The Internet is used to randomly pick out where various Congresspersons are from.  For the US, go to www.house.gov and put in the ZIP code of where you live.  For Canadians, go to http://www.parl.gc.ca, enter House of Commons, and enter your postal code

No reason... I just love this graffiti!
