Thanks for helping with the emails

Apparently people have not only been reading my blog, but have been taking some of the info to heart and acting on it. Here is an article on Politico about my little blog.

Pattie - Thanks so much for pointing this article out to me.

WE CAN'T STOP NOW - KEEP THEM COMING, WE ARE MAKING AN IMPACT

Spam tsunami hits Dem chiefs of staff

An anti-health care reform Web site has published the names of moderate Democratic chiefs of staff in the House -- spawning a Spam tsunami inundating inboxes with more than 500 emails since Wednesday, according to aides.

Energized by Nancy Pelosi's claim she had the votes to pass health care reform,blogger "just a conservative girl" penned a "Dear Fellow Patriot" letter to readers asking them if they could "please [be] joining us in emailing the Chiefs of Staff of the following moderate to conservative Democrats?"

She then published the names and emails of 55.

"I've been dealing with these since yesterday... it's clogging my inbox," said one chief of staff, less peeved than amused.

The emails range from ALLCAPS:

PLEASE DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS DISASTROUS "HEALTHCARE REFORM" BILL. PLEASE DO NOT DESTROY THE VERY FABRIC OF THIS COUNTRY.PLEASE DO NOT BE MANIPULATED INTO SELLING ITS CITIZENS OUT FOR A SOCIALIST AGENDA.PLEASE DO NOT FORCE AMERICANS TO BECOME ENSLAVED AND IMPOVERISHEDPLEASE- PLEASE PLEASELISTEN TO THE CITIZENS WHO WORK TO PAY YOUR SALARY. NOT THE ONES WHO REFUSE TO WORK.

To the partisan:

PS - Ask your congressperson to remind the President that the financial problems we have are not just those of the former President. I seem to recall that for the 2 years prior to the current President, we had a democratic majority in both house of congress.
To the politely persistent:

Being the Chief of Staff for a Congressional Representative is a thankless job. In this position, you clearly have the ability to lean on your Representative to vote in-line with what the American people need and want.

Conservative Girl:
I have signed up for your email revolution against this Health Care reform debacle in Congress. We will not let Congress use 'Parlimentary Reconcilliation' to pass this Lethal Injection for America.
Here is the post on my blog..

American Patriot ‘Just A Conservative Girl’ blog Shows Congress How America Feels On Health Care Reform. Lets Join Her Voice and Email Congress.
Posted By Centrist on July 24, 2009 | Edit

The Centrist notes that Amercians who dont want the current Health Care propsal as is are exercising their free speech and contacting their Congressperson. Lets send Congress these buttons to show how a majority really feels.

Dear CG,

Emailing chiefs of staff can be very effective IF the mailer is
a) a constituent
b} so identifies self with
c} a valid in-district postal mail address and phone number and
d) is a registered voter.

Absent these, staff people have other things to do and will quickly dismiss and delete emails, usually without even opening.

On the other hand, properly so ID'd email (or even better, a written note hand delivered to the district office or faxed there) can have significant impact.

I just e-mailed our Georgia people. I think most of them will vote against the phony "reform" but I just want to put a flea in their ear. THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!! You are so very appreciated more than words can say.

BTW, since you listen to Glenn Beck then you know by now this is not about reform, it's about reparations for the blacks. Now all this urgent pushing by Mr. Obuma makes sense.

God bless. Pamela (Sparky) :o)

I have lots of friends in Canada and Europe and they make fun of the U.S. health care system.

They all tell me that most of their system works on a walk-in basis and the most they have waited is 45 minutes to see a Doctor. I have waited over 2 hours before seeing my Doctor and that is with an appointment.

My friends also say the most they have to wait for medical care that requires an appointment is two or three weeks.

Well, Anonymous then your friends are lucky. I posted a report that paid for by the Canadian Government that painted a very different picture. Yesterday I heard a women whose daughter lived in the UK. She was bi-polar and was in a depressive phase. The hospitial sent her home and the next day she committed sucide. I was a Capital's game and happen to be sitting next to one of the players parents. He said that the care was good for major illness, but not so good for minor things.
I want reform. I also want choices. Single-payer systems don't give you that.

I would love to join the Facebook group - What's the name of the Facebook group?
Thanks!

Just a conservative girl said...

It is just called conservative blogger club. Jessica kept it simple.

Thank you! You have served a vital public service. I have been stymied by the fact that Congress hides behind a firewall of secrecy where their email addressess. At least in my area!

Again, keep up the good work!

I am the Party of NO!
