« We as a Part of America | Main | Did You Make Your Call to Congress Today? »


Now you just need 199 friends in your part of PA.

I always wondered about this sort of thing. But it seems to make the congressperson out to be an utter moron easily manipulated by the most obviously faked "spontaneous" expression of interest in various things. I mean just how dumb would you have to be? Are they really that dumb? It's so hard to credit.

Nevertheless there's obviously a huge gulf between my expectations of sanity and those of the US congress.

Where did you get this information?

Hey, David. I got if from the congressional aide and from a couple of activist organizations all in the same week but unsolicited each time.

I don't think it's necessarily dumb, it sounds like a rule of thumb -- nothing wrong with that, you need some kind of threshold between "ho hum" and "hey look".

To the extent we keep "200" between us, it'll stay that way, to the extent it becomes common knowledge, we may have to revise the number up now and then.

No danger of any information here spreading more widely than among us.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
