Writes Andrew Simpson:
Just called 'my' Congresswoman's office and demanded to know why I can't play online poker any more and also why our town (I live nearPort Huron, Michigan where there is an international bridge) seems to be overrun with Federal troops these days. Guess what? The Congresswoman was not available, the uninterested and snotty phone ansagirl did not know when she would be available, and she said she would 'pass my concerns on to the Congresswoman'. YEAH, RIGHT!!! I just want to play online poker and drive more than 3 miles without going past an armed bureaucrat! Is that so hard? This woman Miller is supposed to represent my interests, and seeing as how she couldn't even represent my interest in talking to her about the piss poor job she is doing representing me, I would have to redundantly say that she is doing a piss poor job of representing my interests! Does anyone really think this woman is doing anything beyond pandering to whoever fills her pockets the fastest and collecting all those sweet, sweet gubment bennies? Does anyone really think that one person can represent the interests of 720,000 others? I get the feeling that stealing online poker from the people might be the thing that gets a lot of them really angry.Thanks, Lew, for your web site. I donate when I can, the other sites are mostly cork boards for gov't press releases. Keep up the great work!
