Protect and expand our civil rights

Mrs Gordon-Booth,

Right to arms and self defense is a civil and human right. Please oppose bills that restrict these rights as threatened by the shell bill HB1155 and similar.

Please support expansion of civil rights such as HB0997. It is time for Illinois to join the other 49 states with "shall issue" concealed carry.

I vote with the ISRA.

Thank you,
[drewtam]
Engineer, Father, Gun owner
[address]

HB1155 is a concealed carry bill proposed by the anti-liberty types that is essentially a no carry bill. It is designed to get the Fed Appeals Court off their backs. HB0997 is the ISRA and Illinois Carry supported bills.

Dear [drewtam],

Thank you for taking the time to contact my office about current legislation that would legalize same-sex marriage.

I believe that as your state representative, it is my duty to represent the beliefs and values of my community. That is why I am taking the time to meet with community leaders and constituents to discuss this issue. I want to have a clear understanding of how the community feels about this controversial proposal. Your input has helped me as I am gathering all of this information.

Once again, thank you for contacting my office and sharing your opinion on same-sex marriage with me. I look forward to hearing from in the future. [sic]

Sincerely,
[printed signature]
Jehan Gordan-Booth
State Representative
92nd District


I think they figured this would get a bitter-clinger all riled up. Still trying to decide how to respond. I really don't care about ss-marriage, because current child support and divorce laws already make legal marriage a sick joke. Anyway, that is just a distraction from the issue; which is the point, I think.
Im not saying I invented the turtleneck. But I was the first person to realize its potential as a tactical garment. The tactical turtleneck! The tactleneck!

Looks like they either copy and pasted the wrong line into the e-mail or simply sent you the wrong form e-mail.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

If you didn't know where they stood before on those bills, you know now.  They didn't care enough about your opinion to even send you the correct formula email.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

How's that rule go about attributing something to stupidity over actual malice.

She is definitely one of the least sharpest knives in the drawer.....  I've seen her in committee meetings before.  :rofl:

DUDE! You used too many words and numbers and *expletive deleted*it. You gotta break it down for them, you get the leftists all frazzled and in a tizzy and they don't know what you are talking about so they automatically assumed it was about the eeeevvvvvviiiiiillllllll gays!

Sounds like an incompetent intern clicked the wrong auto response button for your email.
