Didn't think it could happen, did you?

When Barack Obama sent a brief to the Supreme Court advocating same-sex marriages, it was an earth-shaking moment.  But when George W. Bush sent a letter advocating the same thing... whoa.

Think of that.  Barack Obama and George W. Bush and Joe Biden and Dick Cheney... extraordinarily powerful men with very different viewpoints... come to agreement on same-sex marriage.

It used to be that same-sex marriages were a matter of liberal vs. conservative.  No more.  Now they're a matter of liberal and conservative vs. troglodyte.

Don't let your representative be a troglodyte.  E-mail 'em.

your help is needed...

In case it didn't register with you, I'll say it again:  In Newtown, at Sandy Hook elementary school, twenty seven lives were lost.  Gone. Never, never to return.

Think about that.  Then think about the thousands of lives that are taken around the country.

When morons such as Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and others put their opinions out, one of two things happen:

1)   You e-write your representative and say, "I don't give a flying fart what that idiot thinks, I'm for sensible gun control, and so are my neighbors," ;or...

2)   You say nothing; and your representative assumes that Limbaugh , Beck and the other clowns are forcing their hand, so he reluctantly opposes gun control.

What do you do?
