The way some of these votes have gone; I have several optional locations where I "can" reside and may "move" to in order to campaign "against" a few people. I'm sure my ex-neighbors and/or uncle/cousins would house me a while so I can visit/LIVE with them and take a course or two at a college near them, (and get some coastal kayak fishing in) they've said so for years, and my brother's family can rent (for a nominal amount)/house sit (so my house insurance rates don't increase for an "unoccupied" house)...my house here as it's more convenient than their "boondocks" house which has no road going to it..


Sorry, almost got off topic ...


Calling today ;-)

Please do likewise in the House. I realize there are 150 House Members, but please call as many as you can and you don't have to do it all in one day. In fact, it would be better of this occurred over the next 2 or 3 days. Here is the link: http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Members/ ... ?Chamber=H" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I am asking this not only as a courtesy, so please call even if you haven't responded to any other calls-to-action.

Thanks,
Chas.

I just finished calling all 30 senators (phew!) to say 'thank you' for their votes for SB 321. Will tackle the House reps later...

Wound up having a very pleasant 15 minute conversation w. the staffer in Zaffirini's office about campus carry. Since she's the chair of the higher ed committee, there's basically a snowball's chance in hell that she'd vote for SB 354 as a tradeoff for removing the language from SB 5. Just too much united pressure from all the university heads. Plus all the hand-wringing from the Austin college students. But I was impressed with the lady I spoke with - friendly, didn't treat me like a leper for being one of those 'gun people', knowledgeable, etc.

I hope the university heads vote for her and everyone else votes against her. That would be poetic justice. .

Frustrating. I know it's charmingly naive, but the universities don't elect senators... *we* elect senators :totap: But apparently what the universities want is more important than we, the people...

Here is a much better phone list for the House - a single PDF file, one page, listing all the names & phone numbers. Easier to blow through the list calling everyone off a single cheat sheet!

And just go to the voting page, and check off the names that voted.

BTW, twitter people, you can contact Rep. Aaron Pena directly at @AaronPena.

29 senators faxed (how curious Rodriguez is the one Senator without a fax number!)

Funny how those few powerful people, as well as a few "chicken littles" can override the desires of the many. Did you ask her how that works?

I'm beginning to believe that one of the more effective things the progun people can start doing is work to work to defund the anti-gun schools. Seems like the administrations have way to much time and money on their hands, and that they turning out way to many bedwetting hopophobes. Its time for taxpayers to stop supporting instutes that don't support the people their rights and their constitution.
