Saturday in CinCity. The Pass the Zadroga Bill Edition. Please. And Forward It On.



Dear Senator Voinovich,

I am asking you to please reconsider a blind solidarity with the Republican Party and to vote the will of the American people and the citizens of Ohio on the Zadroga, 9/11 Bill now before the Senate.

It is nothing but wrong to disallow compensation and healthcare assistance to the men and women who worked tirelessly at the WTC site for months on end and who now suffer the consequences of the toxic materials distributed there.

Please honor those first responders who served our country in 2001 by assisting them in their time of need. Any more filibustering looks like exactly what it is--a silly, pathetic joke by folks who don't actually do the hard work at hand. I do not recall one senator pulling a dead body out of the rubble during that national tragedy. Your long speeches are not wanted here. Actual financial assistance is required.
Make it work and get it done.

Thank you for your time and thank you for a vote of support for first responders,



FaceBook has a site or you can easily Google your own state senator and be immediately connected to the website and email.

Included is a taste of what political guru Jon Stewart has to say. It ain't pretty, GOP.

  1. I'll second that emotion!

    Just watched Jon givin' 'em a well-earned reaming last night. Priceless and inspirational. Hopefully, we can shame the elected reps into doing the right thing.

    Please notice my raised iron fist in its velvet glove. I noticed yours.

    (word verif: hyped)

    Stay warm, my dear Distracted friend.

  2. I agree with you 100%. And John is definitely my favorite tv guy. (Rachel is my favorite tv gal!)
