    Q: Who did you call? What did the office say?
    A: I called Senator Angus King’s office and the staffer said he plans to vote no on Fast Track. I also called Senator Susan Collins’ office and asked her to vote no on Fast Track, and the staffer said she would pass along the message.

    Q: Who did you call? What did the office say?
    A: I called Cardin & Mikulski. I stated my objection to TPP and all related trade agreements and to fast track; said the House had done the right thing in beating it back but now the President, whom I supported in 2008 with reservations, the Republican Party and many Democrats are attempting to give the President ft approval once again. I spoke as well of my outrage at these developments, the wars, the political economy practiced by the RP as well as the DP with respect to conservatism/neoliberalism and stated that I am outraged at the condition of the country and laid it at the door of the business class and the rich and our political class who continually give them what they want, regardless of the harm to others. As I had just read an horrific (yet another) account of prison conditions, this time in Alabama, I related my anger that such things have been allowed to go forward and spoke as well of my outrage at the behavior of the police, who are murdering thugs.

    Q: What Rep did you call? What did the office say?
    A: As requested, I called Lamborn’s office (CD05). I got an actual live person.
    Then I read him the line you gave in the email this morning:

    I am not happy that leadership is hastily pushing through a TPA Fast Track vote. I ask that Congressman Lamborn vote no on the “Fast Track” vote today.

    The young man answering the phone then asked why I am asking the congressman to vote this way. I knew, at that point, I would have to give him a simple, short answer for it to mean anything. I just told him it moves jobs overseas. He asked if there was anything else. I said not at this time.

    A: I Called Vern Buchanan’s office today and the woman answering said “he is still collecting opinions from his constituents”. She would not tell me yes or no.
    I told her if he voted yes that I would personally go to every house in venice and make sure he never gets elected again.
    If the Republicans do this and pass this, there needs to be a mass de-registration campaign. Every Republican not “owned” by this party needs to change their voter registration to NPA. Screw the primaries, they are rigged in favor of the “club” candidates.

I called Earl Blumenauer of OR and told him he does not have the facts right on his website.
