We've got to stop this back-door "legislation". Executive orders have been hugely misused over the years. No more.
My message to the CONgresscritters:
Time to get serious. Forget health care and "climate change" - just sideshows.
The main event is being held behind your backs - Mr. Obama has "modified" a Reagan-era executive order to allow Interpol extraordinary privileges in the USA. They do not need to follow any of our laws, even if they are interested in an American citizen.
here's a link to the White House announcement:
If you have a smidgen of respect left for your constituents, you and all of Congress will immediately insist on the retraction of this order, barring that, draft legislation restricting Interpol to following the laws of the United States while on our soil.
Quit screwing around with destroying our health care system and our economy and stand up for our freedoms.

To the usual suspects -
Do you just not understand, or are you actively refusing to listen to your constituents (bosses)?
We have told you repeatedly to vote NO on this monstrous misuse of federal power. The Constitution (little you care) has no mention of universal health care that will devolve almost immediately into the most convoluted bureaucratic nightmare this country has ever seen.
Vote YEA on the final bill and see what happens. You won't much like the results.
You have been warned.

Petition at: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/shameonespn/
Of course they want you to donate.
"Climate change" has been a natural part of life on Earth since the dawn of time. The current fear-mongering is simply a means of forcing more governmental regulation - "people control" - down our throats, and furthering the move toward a "one world government". Read their documentation - they are quite open about their goals.
Thank goodness that they are so insular - they can't decide on a course of action since it would end up hurting them individually, and they cannot abide that!
The radical environmentalists would like nothing better than to manage to reduce the Earth's population by at least 90% - some of them are straightforward about human extinction!

Benedict s bill: Look before you eat
I was under the impression that Wisconsin needed to work on becoming business-friendly, and helping to preserve jobs.
So why is Rep. Chuck Benedict proposing another nanny-state regulation that will encourage businesses to think twice about opening new outlets here, and will cause prices to rise at existing fast food stores by proposing a new law that will force them to completely redo all their menus and outdoor signs to include "nutritional information"?
Last time I was in a McDonald's, there was a poster on the wall with that information. Anyone interested could ask and be shown calorie counts and other information. Mr. Benedict's new law would force them to shove this information into our faces, and make us pay more for the food to cover their expenses.
Obesity may be a problem for some, but it's their problem, not the government's. People have to take responsibility for what they eat, drink, and smoke and the effect it may have on their health. The government should not be taking that responsibility from the people with nanny-state rules such as this.
Aren't there a whole lot of real problems in and around Beloit that Mr. Benedict could be looking into instead of this? How about lobbying for that casino that would provide revenue and jobs for the area? Possibly proposing elimination of some of the recent "green" laws that hamper businesses who might otherwise build here? Reducing the taxes stolen from business?
Since our President has elected to make an ass of himself in Copenhagen, and promise our country will "do something" about this imaginary bogeyman of "climate change", it now falls to you in Congress to rein him in and remind him that the people of the USA are in charge - not him.
While you are at it, why is there no big investigation into the fraud committed by employees of NASA and various academics who received federal money for "climate change" studies?
Vote NO on any "climate" treaty, or any attempt to tax or otherwise control the necessary global nutrient, carbon dioxide. How about putting the EPA back under the control of Congress, so they don't do things like declaring our personal exhalations to be pollution? If it wasn't so serious, it would make for good comedy.
Oh yeah. Vote NO on any attempt to federalize health care. We all know how well the government handles most problems, and this one will be a particularly painful disaster if passed.
An investigation into the Federal Reserve and its' lending practices would be nice.
Remember who pays your paycheck - and all those benefits you are poised to get - like lifelong pension and health care not controlled by pencil-necks in some federal office.

Message from Senator Russ Feingold - DO NOT REPLY wrote:
Dear Mr. Kuecker,
Thank you for contacting me to express your skepticism about the existence of manmade global warming. I appreciate hearing from you.
As you may know, on November 19, 2009, emails and documents that had been stolen from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in England were posted on the Internet. On December 2, 2009, the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming held a hearing on "The State of Climate Science." For more information on this hearing, please visit . In addition, both the United Nations and East Anglia University have said they will conduct investigations into the emails.
The United States is a top emitter of greenhouse gases, and it is time for the federal government to provide leadership on this issue. As you may know, H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act, was introduced in the House of Representatives on May 15, 2009, by Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA). This bill would enact a number of energy policy reforms, including the creation of a carbon cap-and-trade system. H.R. 2454 passed the House by a vote of 219-212 on June 26, 2009. On September 30, 2009, Senators John Kerry (D-MA) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) introduced S. 1733, the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act, which, among other things, would create a carbon cap-and-trade system. On November 5, 2009, the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee passed S. 1733.
During the 110th Congress, I was an original cosponsor of S. 309, the Global Warming Pollution Reduction Act. Senator Bernard Sanders (I-VT) introduced S. 309, which would provide the leadership and the comprehensive, scientific-based approach to addressing global warming that Americans demand and deserve.
The bill also recognizes the importance of taking an economy-wide approach to addressing global warming, and not one that targets a single sector. Industry, power, transportation, and building sectors all have a role to play in reducing global warming-causing emissions. By sending the right market signals and supporting the development of existing technologies and development of new technologies to reduce emissions, we can keep U.S. businesses competitive in the emerging carbon-conscious global marketplace.
Thanks again for contacting me. While we may not always agree, I appreciate hearing from you. Please feel free to contact my office in the future about any issue of concern to you.
You seem to miss the big point here - the whole scare ofer "anthropomorphic global warming" has been nothing but a scam, and a ploy to create a "one world government".
We don't need ANY legislation to address the nonexistent problem - especially now, when our economy is creaking under the weight of ill-conceived economic "fixes" by both the previous administration, and at an alarmingly accelerated rate by Mr. Obama.
We need to address things like climate change corruption and collusion to pass laws that will enrich certain people at the expense of all Americans.
We need to address the border security situation - both south and north.
We need to start enforcing our immigration laws -as written. That by itself would be a great "immigration reform" all in itself.
We need to address the rampant corruption and malfeasance in our banking and lending institutions, foremost the head of the serpent, the Federal Reserve. There needs to be a true independent audit done, and real soon!
We need to make REAL changes to health care - like eliminating the ban on intrastate insurance sales, and eliminating laws that force hospitals and doctors to treat people illegally in the country. Give illegals stabilizing treatment and ship 'em back to wherever in the next wherever-bound Greyhound or semi-trailer.
We need to acknowledge that radical Islam is not a "religion" - rather, it is a front for terrorism. We need to demand that mainstream Muslims stop supporting the radicals.
We need to start drilling and mining for oil and coal HERE, so we can wean ourselves off foreign oil.
We need to rein in rouge federal agencies like the BATFE, and the EPA, who seem to believe they have carte-blanche to make new laws without Congressional oversight.
There's a ton of really important things that Congress should be doing, instead of the three-ring circus you guys delight in.
Get to work, Russ. Remember who your boss is.

Yesterday, i got an email urging me to "sign their petition" to preserve the "public option" in the Senate Western civilization destruction (health care reform) bill. I did NOT click on the tab to sign the petition, instead I forwarded to friends and email lists.
Today, I got an email from them thanking me for my signature on that petition.
I don't know why I should be surprised that they would lie, but this proves it!
Original email reply I posted to various people:
Speaking of health care...just got this.
Looks like they are getting scared. Let's help 'em OUT (of office!)

Dear MoveOn member,
Alarming news: the public option could be dead within days, and we need Harry Reid to act fast to save it.1
A few conservative Democrats, including Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman, are threatening to block health care reform—all of it—if the rest of the Democratic Caucus doesn't agree to drop or weaken the public option.2
A tiny minority of conservatives could cut out the heart of reform, supported by 86% of Democrats. The latest news is that to appease them a weak compromise is being unveiled within days.3
But it doesn't have to be this way. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can still stop this, if he continues to fight. Reid has shown that he's willing to be a leader in fighting for the public option, and now we need him more than ever.
So we're sending an emergency petition to Senator Reid asking him to do everything in his power to persuade these senators to support real health care reform. Can you sign the petition to Harry Reid? Clicking here will add your name:
As Senate Majority Leader, Reid can apply pressure in a number of ways: call a vote to force conservative Democrats to stand up publicly with Republicans and Big Insurance to filibuster health care, strip them of their committee chairmanships or committee seats, or opt to pass health care through what's called the "reconciliation" process, which would let him pass the bill with a simple majority vote.
Sen. Reid has shown us in the past that he's willing to fight for the public option. And in this final showdown, we all need to stand stronger than ever. Sen. Reid needs to hear that, at this crucial time, we've got his back.
Can you sign the petition to Harry Reid today? Clicking here will add your name:
Thank you for all you do.

What I got this morning:
Thank you. Your name has been added to the petition and your comments will be delivered to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Another great way to make sure Majority Leader Reid hears from us is to spread the word to your friends and family so they know what's going on. You can just forward the sample letter below.
Spreading the word is critical, but please only pass this message along to those who know you -- spam hurts our campaign.
Thanks for all you do.
