    I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    I wrote to my Republican Congressional representative and told him to vote in support of a bill that the President would sign. I told him to end this approaching financial train wreck immediately. Time has run out. This is no time to continue playing games of brinkmanship that threaten to hurt Americans' financial welfare or damage the economy.

    May I suggest you all do the same with your representatives?

    • Did yesterday. Thanks for the post

    • I've already done it.

    • It will be interesting to see if you get a response. I have written to my two Senators, Warren and Markey and my Rep. Kennedy (one of the dumber Kennedys). I wrote essentially the same message. "Use whatever influences that you have to let Reid know that this Kabuki theater must stop, that the chronic gamesmanship must cease, the in-your-face gamesmanship is non-productive and as a voter and a retiree, take the intiiative to get some progress. All three are hard-core liberal democrats and I let them know that I am and independant voter, have been for years.

      The messages were emailed to their congressional offices over two weeks ago. Absoultely no response. Nothing. This in in sharp contrast when I would write to Sen. Scott Brown and Rep. Barney Frank. They were quick with a response, always even if the responses were standard verbiage and most likely sent by a staff member. Nonetheless, I would always get a response either by email or, believe it or not, a phone call.

      Nothing from these three turkeys, nada. So, if you hear back, great. If not, do not be surprised as it may be just an annoyance for these self-engrandizing morons.

      Good luck.

      • I received a canned response from my representative. I have been writing to him daily -- three times today, in fact, as developments changed -- to urge him to vote for any bill that the President would sign that would end the debt ceiling and government funding crisis and calm financial markets.

      • More letters were emailed by me this morning to my two Senators and my Congressman asking them to exercise their influence to help resolve the miserable budget stalemate and government shutdown and to support all American citizens rather than just select groups. Hopefully, this round of emails will get a response, unlike the silence I have received from previous attempts to make contact.

        I hope others here will do the same rather than just sit around complaining and do nothing about it. Give them your thoughts sometime today. It is easy to make contact.

    • The famous speech from the movie "Network", for those of you who are too young or who otherwise don't get the allusion to the movie in the topic of this thread:

      Howard Beale: "I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth; banks are going bust; shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter; punks are running wild in the street, and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it.

      We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat. And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be!

      We all know things are bad -- worse than bad -- they're crazy.

      It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out any more. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials, and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone."

      Well, I'm not going to leave you alone.

      I want you to get mad!

      I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your Congressman, because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street.

      All I know is that first, you've got to get mad.

      You've gotta say, "I'm a human being, goddammit! My life has value!"

      So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell,

      "I'm as mad as hell,

      and I'm not going to take this anymore!!"
