Pelosi Preparing to Refuse Further Iraq Funding
Let's not get ahead of ourselves, and let's remain vigilant and increase the pressure, but this change in policy from Speaker Pelosi is the most encouraging thing I've seen in many months. http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/downloads/housegovpelosi.jpg So many of us have lost heart, feel that all our phone calls, letters, arrests, CD, sacrifice have done nothing. Now more than ever, it is the time to call again, call every day
. Don't just call when you are angry, call now, call as many congressmenbers as you can, not just your own. Let them know they will get rewarded if they stop the war funding.
You cannot be bipartisan with the Repukes because they are
not a political party. They are a criminal conspiracySaturday/Sunday, April 5/6, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm. Democracy for America Training Academy in San Diego. Top campaign consultants will provide training in field planning, voter contact, fundraising, communications, volunteer recruitment and more. If you harbor a dream of running for office yourself one day, know someone else you'd like to recruit to run and support, or if you just want to be the most effective political activist you can be, this training is for you Details at http://www.dfalink.com/event.php?id=26531
